Have to say i agree with Anus on this one.

Everybody knows the rules going into the tournament.

This has nothing to do for sticking up for his people........ As Anus said, lots of minorities around the world in a tougher plight than the Aboriginal

When I look at it all I see is Britain's flag on one side and a bunch of stars on the other not unique to Australia in any way.

I do agree that Hooper broke the rules. It's not about what the shirt said or had on it but that he wore it at all. Still not going to knock him for doing it but again thats my opinion.
well said..

i dont think what he Damien did was wrong but it does go against the rules simple as that.

agree fully about the flag though

good shit....both ways.
He hasnt broken any IOC rule, Unofficial flags are banned at the Olympic Games and the Aboriginal flag is legally an Offical flag of Australia. This was done by legislation in 1995 by Prime Minister Paul Keating. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags are recognised as official flags of Australia, and shouldn't be viewed simply as a political statement.

This bullsht reminds me of the Arthur Tunstall days, i thought we had moved on from that crap?

The Aborignal Flag was even flown at several Olympic venues at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. Its bureaucratic insanity

Not just that m8 but also legally the kid is within his right to fly the Kori flag as the SOCOG has already set a precendence at the sydney 2000 games.

The Sydney Games Organising Committee (SOCOG) said on Monday the Aboriginal flag will be welcomed at official venues, though there will be size limits.

SOCOG spokesman Milton ****burn told Reuters a report in The Sunday Age newspaper that SOCOG had banned spectators from taking the Aboriginal flag into venues was wrong.

Under a long-standing rule, flags from non-participating countries may not be flown at the Games. But the Aboriginal flag, which is highly symbolical, would not be considered in this light.

"The IOC has made it clear that they are relaxed about the Aboriginal flag and they understand its significance in Australia," ****burn said.
He said the flag would not be regarded as a prohibited item for spectators, but it would be up to individual teams to decide whether athletes carried it.
So its the AOC being the asshats in this one. He was warned by the AOC, the ICO dont give a rats ass.

They understood the signifigance in Australia, presumably during our home Olympics in Australia!!

Could you imagine if an Athlete representing Spain or France walks in wearing a tshirt with the Basque flag on it?? ( i know you wouldnt have a clue you uneducated hick) or if a Tamil representing Sri Lanka?? or a Kurd representing Turkey or Iraq?? a Chechnian representing Russia?? or any number of the other thousands of minorities who have much more volatile histories than Aborigines, the political, social implications on a world scale could be rather more dramatic than a slap on the wrist for the athlete

If one kid gets away with it, they may as well all get away with it

The last thing the Olympics needs is political posturing

So then the Kangaroo flag is ok but the Kori flag is not? as for your other comparisons they dont qualify. Kori flag is an offical flag of AUSTRALIA moron.

No, neither would be ok, the Boxing Kangaroo flag isnt political but its in no way official, its a novelty flag, in the boxing i believe they were told to wear the colour of their corner, red or blue & thats it

I explained to you about the amount of minorities there are in just about all countries around the world, if you allowed them all to make a statement based on ther ethnicity, religion, tribe or otherwise you'd have the biggest shit fight ever & if you dont take seriously how stringently the IOC takes its image, just try & use any of their intellectual property anywhere for your own purposes


The flag might have some kind of official status as an official australian flag, but it is not "The National Flag" there is only one official national flag.....moron


& whats a ****ing "Kori"

A Kori is another word for an Aborignal

IOC dont give a rats ass its the AOC that are kicking up a fuss, and there is no political statment, the flag doesnt represent that as such, technically its breaking no IOC Rule but the AOC got their nose stuck up in the air about it. Good on him for being proud of his culture and heritage and fck the haters i say.
