Those familiar with the Roar would no doubt be familiar with code wars. However, it’s all getting a bit ‘same-ish’ for me.

Watching last year’s Ireland versus Australia International Rules match on the Gold Coast I, like so many others, couldn’t help but wonder if this would be the last time we would see the mutant round-ball spectacle played.

The timing of the Allan Border Medal, Australian cricket’s night of nights, says a lot about the messy scheduling of the cricket season. With the Commonwealth Bank Series still a match away from its finals series, Australian cricket was patting itself on the back for a job well done.

Some deny its existence; others declare it as the war that is consuming Australia. The code wars, like it or lump it, are becoming a national obsession as fans defend their respective codes like religious zealots defending their respective Gods.

You don’t need to monitor this site for long to realise that its readers take their TV ratings very seriously. You could say they are seen as the most popular ammunition in the code wars.
