Butler and Castagna have their own version pumping in their car on the way to training:

The Club's reply email to complaints about the new version of our theme song:

Quote from: monsterbudd
Thank you for your email and sending through your feedback around the song.

We’ve got the best song in the league, no doubt, but the version of our song being used at our games up until now has included an incorrect lyric – “risking head and skin” instead of the correct line – “risking head and shin”. Over the last 6-7 years the Club has received a huge amount of communication and feedback from our fans, pleading with us to correct the song. Some in the media, including Club Immortal Kevin Bartlett, joined the call to correct the song, therefore the feedback has intensified over the last few years.

We have been investigating ways of fixing the song, with the final recommendation from the experts being that due to the quality and format of the original song, it would need to be re-recorded.

Our song, like the rest of our Intellectual Property (IP) is owned by the AFL, therefore we had to engage with them in a bid to correct the lyric. After a few years of lobbying, the AFL agreed to undertake a project to fix the song and in doing so, discovered there were at least 6 other clubs whose club songs had incorrect lyrics (must have been a big day in the studio back when they were originally recorded!). Therefore, the AFL put the offer out to all Clubs to re-record the songs, of which, 15 Clubs agreed.

Working with the AFL, we engaged KB and our very own Matthew Richardson to get involved in the re-recording of the song.

So in summary, our objective was to correct the incorrect lyric in the song, whilst maintaining the overall integrity. We believe this has been achieved.

Thank you once again for your email and your loyal support to the Tigers.

Skin/ Shin who cares? Get the old song back.
Proud of the worst team in history to win a premiership.

What crap!

That reply is the exact article that the club posted on the website when this mess first reared its head

So much for listening to their fans

Doubt thry have guts to tell us how many complaints there have bern about this new pathetic version
"Oh yes I am a dreamer, I still see us flying high!"

from the song "Don't Walk Away" by Pat Benatar 1988 (Wide Awake In Dreamland)
