'It Was Strange': Mundy Not Sold On Prince's 'Purple Rain'
Coming from a 50-point belting from Port Adelaide in their season opener, the Freo Dockers seemed a completely different team on Saturday.
In front of almost 50,000 at Optus Stadium, Freo came roaring back, beating the Bombers 16.10 (106) to 14.6 (90).
David Mundy, Ed Langdon and debutant Adam Cerra all kicked two goals.
Mundy caught up with 96FM’s Paul & Lise on Tuesday, with the first question being about Hayden Ballantyne’s head.
“How’s Ballas after that hit?” Lise asked.
“His head bounced off the grass”
“Well, everyone’s taking about [Collingwood player Tim] Broomhead’s leg and that’s the reason why things have not been getting attention,” said Paul, referring to Broomhead breaking his leg in the first quarter of the Magpies' clash against Greater Western Sydney at the MCG.
“Ballas head would have to be a bit harder than Broomhead’s leg,” Mundy joked.
“He’s fine, he’s OK”
Paul asked Mundy about the AFL’s “push for more theatrics” and that the light show at the end of the game was “absolutely amazing” before saying that Collingwood’s attempt fell short.
“Collingwood’s Metallica tribute before the game didn’t quite work,” he said.
“It was so bad,” Lise added.
“How did I feel being out there to a bit of AC/DC and a bit of Purple Rain from Prince?”
Mundy said that the team “got the full exposure” to the tracks at last week’s training.
“Purple Rain was a little bit interesting, I thought.”
“Because it’s a slower song, it’s not sort of a ‘pump up’ song,” said Paul.
“I think it’s the last one right before we kinda go, to play,” Mundy said.
“It was a bit strange.”
However, it was a bit different on Saturday.
“We’re kind of in our last huddle, so it didn’t really capture that last moment for us,” Mundy admitted.
“So, it was probably more of a ‘public’ thing.”
