They had a go and were beaten by a far superior team. Just sat back too far as the energy reserves sapped. Very predictable except for the goal I guess.

'Deer in the headlights': Defender roasted, talisman subdued - how 'terrorised' Socceroos players rated

Yeah, cause politicians always look after things so well! I’d suggest you listen to Anna Meares, newly appointed Chef de Mission for the 2024 Paris Olympics, and her comments on SEN this morning about those who suggest athletes should stay in their lanes. Superbly said and exposing the hypocrisy of those who suggest it.
Secondly, I’m wondering where I suggested that I ‘hate’ the idea of the World Cup. I certainly dislike the laws of the hosts and the treatment of many of its residents and visitors, yet the football is beautiful and the opportunity to expose their awfulness and make significant change, just as the F1 drivers have done in Saudi Arabia in recent years, is something to be embraced and acted upon.

So to suggest that people who do not embrace the concept of universal love nor practise tolerance, are foolish and lacking in worldly and emotional intelligence is narrow minded? Yeesh. More like calling out those infringing on the human rights of others.

Not detaining/killing someone due to their sexual preference has nothing to do with politics. Protecting workers with basic rights is also not political. They are called fundamental human rights that are meant to be protected around the globe. Rogue states that refuse to do so should be called out constantly.

Yes, that all happened quickly didn’t it? What is Manny Muscat up to?

I knew I liked you. I’m always intrigued by the capitalist that invests hope and faith in those who ascend to positions of power and control. Yeah…..their good will is certain to help the masses! All the while the social gaps expand. People hoodwinked by conservative capitalists.

There is also a pre-World Cup series on Foxtel that is frightfully propagandist and designed to soften things. I found it hard to watch.

Something tells me Fozz is going to rip in and all power to him. However, you can keep Zelic to yourself, her role in Stajcic-gate was significant, ill-formed and toxic. Makes me sick thinking about it to this very day.

Me too Grem!

Not locking someone up or murdering them due to who they choose to love has ZERO to do with politics. Every time people use that term, it insults the voices of those fighting for people’s dignity and basic human rights.

Frankly, they continue to mistake human rights and politics. Two very different things in my view.

Quality man. Shame a few people haven’t read past the headline! Oh well.

I believe faith healing is a bit of a thing there. Not sure how that works but I could see Arnie doing a bit of that.

The Rhodesian curse: Socceroos need $50,000 and a Qatari witch doctor

I was thinking Chris Hemsworth as Arnie and Rowan Atkinson as the witch doctor. Perhaps Garang Kuol played by Chris Rock and Ed Sheeran with a cameo role as Andrew Redmayne.

I’ve reviewed that stat Rob9 and you are correct. I interpreted ‘cumulative’ in a different way. My apologies. Still most viewed but the figure you describe is correct.

Yes, I’ve read that stat incorrectly. My apologies. I should typed a cumulative average of 18.7.

Incorrect. Figure is available on the RLWC website. Just 18 million across more than the twenty matches held to that point would be disgraceful.

By the numbers, RLWC a success: Blowouts a teething problem as all sports expand their footprint

Each and every match has been shown on the BBC in the UK. As of November 6, they were citing an average of 18.7 millions viewers per match. Based on the size of their market and the greater interest from new and now more competitive nations, this edition of the cup will be the most viewed, with the extrapolated and final figures yet to be confirmed.

I reckon that is on page one of Arnie’s exercise book!

If you can make that happen I’d be happy to share my winnings!!!

Biggest smokey and best value to escape the group Japan. Worth a couple of bob, which I’ve managed to find.
