A Queensland “Bogan” fan was accused of triggering the booing chorus that clouded the Memorial Day ceremony in Sydney for State of origin II.
The rogue Maroon’s fan reportedly attempted to start a fight at the ANZ Stadium during the Last Post and Wednesday night’s minute of silence.
Fans on the ground who were loudly beaten for boos and ridicule during the memorial service say they actually condemned the Queensland supporter.
The perpetrator was finally escorted from the stadium by the police screaming before kick-off.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Just to give context. A QLD fan screamed and tried to start a fight during The Last Post. Then the police came to remove him.
‘The crowd around him decided to boo him for what he did. But of course it was loud, no disrespect was meant. Just wrong timing ‘.
Another viewer backed up the claims: “For anyone who wondered what the minute of silence on Origin last night was about, there was a line that Queenslander undermined when he was escorted by police,” they wrote.
Another woman who claimed she was in the Blatchy’s Blues section of the stadium said the boo had nothing to do with the last post.
‘One man was removed, that was the boo, it had nothing to do with The Last Post being played.
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to NRL and NSW police for a comment.
This marked the first time a game of origin was played on Remembrance Day after the annual three-game series was postponed to the end of the regular season due to Covid-19.
It was quiet before the second game between New South Wales and Queensland started on Wednesday evening.
Corporal John Byrne played the Last Post to commemorate the lives lost in World War I.
Then, halfway through the tribute, cheers and ridicule echoed through the stadium, causing widespread disgust among fans at home.
Some viewers have now spoken out and claimed that the supporters are not disrespectful to soldiers and soldiers’ wives

At home, viewers flocked to Twitter to beat up those responsible for their “disrespectful behavior”.
,Impressive. That was absolute disrespect. Is it that hard to show respect in silence? Blood is boiling, ”wrote a woman.
Another added, “Do people seriously not know how to be silent for a few minutes?”
Don’t these animals understand what a “tiny silence” is? F ** k will “read a third post.
Along with the Boos, other fans broke into early applause during the Last Post, not knowing that the song wasn’t finished.
The national anthem was also criticized. Some players refused to sing in protest, including Queensland Center Dane Gagai and NSW stars Cody Walker, Josh Addo-Carr, Jack Wighton and Payne Haas.
The audience at home slammed the fans who had booed for “absolute lack of respect” (blues team pictured during the anthem).
Queensland drew first blood with a crazy try against 19-year-old winger Xavier Coates.
But from that point on it was all blues with attempts in the first half against Cody Walker, James Tedesco and Josh Addo-Carr.
Queensland desperately missed Cameron Munster, who was replaced by Ben Hunt in eighth place after a violent head blow.
They started the game well when Daly Cherry-Evans helped an acrobatic coates with a clipping.
But they lacked the spark and they fought for possession after the first 15 minutes. Josh Papalii scored her only further attempt – again after a Cherry Evans pass.
NSW finished the game 34-10 and will fly to Brisbane next week for the series’ decisive game.

As of the previous Wednesday, NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian was not in the mood for the traditional interstate friendly rivalry over the event.
She said she would not text Queensland Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk and continued to be frustrated by refusing to open the border to Sydneysiders, arguing that both states’ economies were suffering.
“I think I have clarified my case. And she made her position clear. And I don’t think she’ll move, ”she told ABC.
‘There is a lot at stake. I think the goal posts Queensland set for opening the borders to NSW are unrealistic, and I just wish they would act more compassionately and sensibly. ‚
There was “absolutely no health council that says NSW is a danger to anyone”.
