where the fuck did they get those massive chains from " Bunnings : Beyond the Wall "?

Wonder if Bort is signed as a CB to play next to Jakobson or if he's their new RB and they will keep playing Tongyik.

They're looking decent, lot rides on the new Pole being good though.

Riding the pole. Fnarrr.

I reckon its only a matter of time before Optus offer the EPL to everyone the way they should have in the first place. First the free trial and now this partnership with Sky Racing. At least I hope this will be the case!

If Sudmalis goes as well because of citizenship, fold the parliament.

Not sure if Kewell has the personality to coach first team football though, he seems a bit introverted and reserved.

Hope he turns it around or gets another shot elsewhere though.

New Gang of Youths album is really strong on first few listens. Step up from the debut album.

Check it out if you are into bands like The National and The Gaslight Anthem.

Most football fans in Australia bypassed the mainstream media long ago IMO.

Waste of time expecting good coverage from the big outlets.

Yes, SMH clearly has a hateful vendetta against our game. No other way to explain it. I have an annual (paper) subscription and have tried to contact current sports editor but he just hides. From Salford, I think he is. Maybe he is just a pathetic lover of league with a chip on his shoulder for the way the game suffers in the 'old country' or maybe the only football he likes is played in Manchester.

Nothing in the SMH paper editions on our game for days at a time (even Sun-Herald!) despite the incredible successes of the Matilidas as a team and as individuals (cf to coverage of Wallaroos, women's RU that no-one plays or watches and did poorly). Media should be building up stories regarding the upcoming crucial World Cup qualifiers for the Socceroos and the successes of some Socceroos - eg Mooy and Leckie in top leagues.  Almost nothing appears about the HAL whereas RU and RL were backpage specials throughout their off-seasons, including meaningless international RL matches vs eg Scotland. British Lions vs All Blacks in NZ gets bigger coverage than Socceroos and there was really bugger all when Brazil played Argentina in Melbourne and players like Messi were in the country.

Bledisloe Cup got 56,000 or so after days of coverage including front and back pages - much less than our almost unannounced first Sydney derby last year; Big RL clubs are like Eels and Bulldogs are getting home crowds at Mariners level (in a bad year), yet their games still gets pages of coverage. WE will soon see gridiron getting more than our game.

Football stories are often the top or well-ranked stories on SMH on-line but never make it into paper. Does this matter? Yes, very much. The morning papers set the agendas which the TV and radios follow. They create the "common sense" understanding that "no one is interested in football in this country, it is all rugby" which football people from overseas always say just through noticing what they see in front of them.  Indeed there seem to be more articles on (unpleasant) politics in our game than on the game itself (thanks, Cockerill).

Yes the FFA are terrible at marketing but from what I hear, SMH has sacked all their full-time football journalists; I will need to check if Bossi is still there or is now a stringer. Even Murdoch's DT gives our game a better run than the SMH and they own NRL!  Bitter AND Twisted am I.

Why are you still giving them your money?
