Australia KO3 would be more appropriate.

If you are wanting to cause a reaction you should pick a sporting event that us Brits give a **** about. We already know we are a joke at most of the sports they do at the Olympics. We still kick ass in the cycling and sailing and could pick up a few medals elswhere but we are not concerned with how fast someone can swim or how much drugs people can take to make themselves run fast.


By the way if any of our boxers meet we will embarrass you the same way we did last time with your shitty Aussie hopeful Zap.

Isn't it such a shame that Australia is so culturally bereft that the only semblence of national pride and identity that they can come up with is beating the poms at sports we dont care about. We dont care!! We have collectively grown up as a nation! Catch up, anytime soon boys.

We have a proud history, you have no history, we have a well defined and loved worldwide culture, you have a massive cultural inferiority complex that comes to the fore every time you get involved in a sporting event. Its bloody embarassing, get a grip! Your just like the Uruguayans, who were an artificially constructed country, and so used soccer as its only means of bringing the nation together because of no shared heritiage. Except the Uruguayans grew out of it about 30 years ago. Do catch up.

You Aussies pick up a stack load of medals where as we only get the odd couple. I can not see us getting near you in the final medal tally but I do not mind, I always cheer on the former Commonwealth countries in these events.

Mate get over yourself. You know as well as we do that the most talked about sporting event between 2 countries that the rivalry goes on for over 100 years.

The Ashes. When you win we get shit from the Poms and we win we give you shit its the way it goes.

If you now state that no one follows cricket well thats just not true. The year you won the Ashe's in 2005 more people followed that than the lack luster English football team.

'England'? Who is this 'England'? What Olympics have they ever taken part in?

Might you possibly mean the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?

So we don't give a shit about cricket.....

I certainly do, but realise that 2005 was a one-off, and that order was restored in 2007 - it seems like the status quo will remain for quite some time as well.
