Far out, it's embaressing to see some of the bigotry and unintelligence shown by a couple of the Aussies on this board. However some of you are retaliating by tarring with one brush which is hardly fair either. It's pretty obvious that comparing a kangaroo hop (which was subsequently proven to be unrelated anyway) is not comparable with the suggestion of mocking something as tragic as a bombing. However, it stems from being sore losers and lacking a bit of grey matter. It does not apply across the nation. We do have some things to feel aggrieved about, but I don't think that we were victimised like some people are making out. It could be taken as respect in fact, the pleasure teams derived from beating us. We were viewed in the group as the team to beat afterall. The grass rolling is rife in Asian football, but it is not something exclusive to playing against Australia. Of course, Australia's reputation coupled with grass rolling culture worked as a double whammy in Grella's very questionable red. But these are hardly the things to blame for our exit. From the first match of the cup we looked ordinary. Even coming out of the Thailand game with 4 goals I felt we were lucky. We went into the tournament with a top class team and great expectations but played, for the most part, horribly. That is the reason we are out. People are quicker to point out the Grella red in our exit to Japan than the fact that Milligan stuffed up an almost routine clearance (despite his otherwise good performance) and gifted Japan a goal. I do love the fire in Grellas belly. It is what makes him the competitor it is. In that position it is the sort of aggression you need. He is probably one of my favourite Socceroos, but he had a poor tournament. His mouth could have been used more constructively on this occasion. The labelling happening between posters here is absurd and painful to read inbetween finding actual points in peoples posts. Yes there are some sore losers here. But sore losers exist everywhere. It is better to not dignify them with excessive effort, or emulate them by throwing equally generalised insults back across the table.
