The whole “rugby championship” thing got stale pretty quick for me. I only became interested in Aus playing NZ & SA if it was at the world cup. Only annual internationals I like watching (apart from the northern hemisphere touring side here) are the six nations tournament (except Italy).

Less is more for Test rugby in a post-pandemic world

I’d add Jawad there seems to be some old guys that hang around too long. Is James Courtney really worth his seat? Never seems to get podiums like Holdsworth before.
There’s talented young guys who can’t even get a seat in this series due to the over the hill guys.

Racing incident.

'What the f--k was he doing!' F1 diver goes troppo at rival for causing nasty crash

Yep, I noticed the pattern of far stronger Commodores this year. I was just assuming Will & Anton at DJR might take 3-4 rounds to find their groove before seriously pushing for wins. But then the other Tickford guys apart from Waters have been nowhere near pushing for podiums, so it is a curious situation.

You’re pretty naive then. If you look across the spectrum of sports, you can see how well we do. For goodness sake, we were runners up in our second Asian Cup and won the third one we competed in.

But the poms are the worst at overhyping themselves. I think they’re a bit more modest these days.
Winning isn’t easy, sure agreed.

To be fair Chris, I guess it’s not relevant how a car becomes lapped if they decide on the unlapping process. It’s just the notorious good luck that Hamilton seems to have, he so often seems to get a lucky break he doesn’t deserve!

F1 must do away with its unfair unlapping rules

Andre Russell…the West Indian cricketer Chris? What was he doing driving in an F1 GP? 😛

Have they PCC approved that swimming pool have they?

Who should be the next captain of the Australian cricket team?

There’s a possibility he might get injured at some stage. So we just elevate the VC…who is Lyon I think?

Bernie has made no secret he’s clearly in the anti-Paine club. 😁

It’s something about a grass banked venue and suburban/village setting. The kiwis seem to have a similar idea, with tests at smaller venues with grass banks selling well (Christchurch tests sell well with the new cricket specific ground over the rugby stadium that was destroyed), but Auckland rarely getting a test as people don’t like watching it at the rugby stadium: Eden Park (that the kiwis pretend the playing field is big enough for cricket! 😛 ). Apparently they want to build a cricket specific facility in Auckland to host tests.

The Sheffield Shield final's success proves there is room to reshape the domestic calendar

He’s having an argument with himself! 😂 😂 😂

Hey Jeff, how does that schedule work out? Australia was supposed to host the 2020 T20WC which has been delayed to this year…but now India are hosting it? How did that work out?!

What’s this “super round” you referenced all about Brett?

Why have SANZAAR remained silent on 2022 Super Rugby plans?

I mean we would be winning world cups, or at least making finals, semi-finals, quarter finals etc regularly. Australia thrives on competition. We’re usually top ten at the olympics, finished #4 at one olympics, were Asian cup runners up at our second attempt, won it at our third attempt. After 32 years out, we made the knockout round at our second FIFA world cup when most pundits were saying we’d be lucky to draw any games in our pool.

The NFL & NBA are completely ring fenced…pretty much like these clubs are trying to do here with this proposed ESL.

A European Super League is elitist, arrogant and criminal

Well, that’s the global appeal of soccer isn’t it. What that shows me is that if soccer was culturally dominant in Australia, then we would be a global powerhouse.

We're all to blame for The World Game shutting down

Despite their cultural dominance, they haven’t been able to get one other country to play that sport to any significant degree. Even here it’s just an oddity. And this is a country that has basketball and baseball: sports that have significant popularity outside the US.

But the premise is that the little guys still get a chance to beat these big guys. Now the big guys are ring fencing themselves off!

The ‘Super League’ is everything that football isn’t

Just jealousy and spite.

Well the yanks love gridiron, yet no one else cares. Why is it “embarrassing” for you? That’s a weird comment.

Finally matt, a common sense comment. 👍 The chip some people have about what sports aussies like is really baffling.
