Congrats to Australia winning the World Cup. By far the best team in the tournament.
The Aussie cricketers did the world a favour by winning that world cup, imagine how big that chip would be if the Crap craps won and the All Blacks who are definite shoe in at the RWC this year.

Hey @VictoriaPolice , we're getting a few calls about a robbery at the MCG. Any idea what the go is? #CWCFinal

@QPSmedia We've gone down to check it out. No robbery, but getting reports of a missing cricket team #CWCFinal

Article today about South Africa's selection of Philander being on race-based grounds. And TBH I'd completely forgotten their whole quota thing, but it does explain why Abbott was left out in the face of sanity.
@The Snort, Your Post @ #626 is witty.
This is not.
Quite right, I apologies for that, feel free to remove it.
I don't mind Hugh, that was 2003 when Gregan said that. I prefer this one.
One More Year. Its more relevant.
Even the Aussie media is telling Clarke and Haddin to shut up. Wonder what Hooper and Moore will be like when they win the Rugby World Cup this year.
Certainly hope your rugby players have learnt something from losing so many times to us over the years and not just how to play great rugby but how to win graciously, with humility and class.
Your cricketers tough hard nosed attitude and will to win is a great thing to admire on the field, their arrogance and conceitedness off the field leaves a lot to be desired.
Someone over on TSF had the perfect quote:
You could also apply that to the All Blacks. Seem like really great blokes, but a some of their fans have grown up with a bad attitude about their success. Verbal abuse toward minors, physical abuse of adults.
You sound like you've had a few and have obviously copped a lot over the last decade and don't like losing against us. I congratulated all Australians on here on your win of the CWC and then quote you on how your cricketers are classless and provide media links to stories even by your own media.
So Wallabies fans don't verbally abuse? and some All Black fans physically abuse adults, you might want to elaborate on that one and not make up some sort of hyperbole. You sure your physical abuse comment isn't about your forwards getting beaten up all the time by Richie, Jerome and Kieran?
If not, please do tell us All Blacks fans on this forum where you get your facts from?
Otherwise go back to your beer and keep dreaming some more of the next Wallabies victory against us, you're definitely due for one soon.
Pretty accurate quote.
Didn't see much in the way of the Australian crowd giving McCullum, Vettori or Elliott any verbal treatment, check out a Bledisloe game in New Zealand and their attitude to Quade Cooper. Even Steve Hansen has called for an end to it, but the graciously, humble and classy AIG fans seem to know better.
Some members of the Australian Cricket Team (I'm not going to lazily blame them all because of a few) could use some humility for sure.
Maybe that change in culture is something to work on by the time we win our 6th World Cup.
Not the best example of an Australian defending the nations pride. Quade is one of ours. A Tokoroa boy with a Maori Ta Moko on his arm. That's Kiwi on Kiwi there. You really want to claim him?
Plus you seem to have a short memory of why he copped it so bad from us?
Kneeing people in the face while their on the ground pisses people off, just like going on a radio station the day after you win the CWC trying to justify sledging as part of the Australian way. Rubbish and seems like many other Australians feel that way too according to your own media. Sounds like you are in the minority.
Nice touch on the Hansen reminder, wonder where Darren Lehmann was when Haddin was on the radio yesterday. Great cricketer, classless personified.
For every "Quade dares to be agro toward Sir Richie" story, there is a "Richard Lowe smashes Carozza's snozza", or "Johan Le Roux feasts on Fitzpatricks ear", or "Unknown Les Blues rucks Bucks scrotum open", or "Sir Pinetree Meads rips John Hipwells leg out of its socket while he was pinned down" story for fans to hate. On field violence and dickheadedness is not a national characteristic or isolated to one particular nation, nor is it endorsed by the majority of players even though the dick will still be a dick.
Same with crowds and supporters, just because there are plenty of unsporting dickheads in any 80000 crowd doesn't mean that all supporters from that nation are similarly dickheads. In my time, I've seen some pretty appalling acts carried out by fans wearing Wallaby Gold that, as a Wobs supporter, I am ashamed of. I have also had some awesome times out on the town at various rugby occasions in a variety of countries with fans from all around the world that more than make up for times that one has to deal with the less gracious characters and their behaviour.
There are frequent shootings, stabbings, muggings, and random acts of violence played out all across Sydney, many of which would make Jake the Muss from Once were Warriors look like a Play School Presenter in comparison. That doesn't mean that no one ventures out of their house unless they are in armoured vehicles and flak jackets. Life goes on as normal even in the dodgiest of neighbourhoods.
Time to put the cross Tasman handbags down and get back to yacking about the CWC.
An All Blacks fan talking about winning graciously, with humility and class. oh the fucking irony. The amount of All Blacks fans, who chose to relocate to Australia, who take delight in Australia losing to any other team is absolutely hilarious, as though it somehow justify the miserable existence of these people.
What about this grub? You wanna claim him?
By the way, you're going to have a hard time getting any support outside NZ for a 10 giving it to a 7.
True true Hugh, you might want to tell that to your colleague who started on the fan and Quade drama and took it away from the CWC. I was just congratulating the Australian CWC victory and then the dickhead who was on radio yesterday that was prancing around as your wicketkeeper on Sunday.
Seems not everyone can stick the subject of the CWC. Back to the CWC.
And that has what to do with the CWC Train With a Station? Don't hate my friend, we contribute a lot more than just rugby players. Plenty of Wallabies fans live in NZ too.
Probably as much as anything Quade Cooper has ever done I'd say.
Don't go bringing this stuff up, then try and claim the moral high ground when somebody rebuffs your claim with actions by New Zealanders that erode your moral objection.
GET BACK ON TOPIC.
