    Yeah threads are closed for showing Superman's crotch, but apparently folk like Marc are allowed to spew their deliberately inflammatory rubbish, unpunished. God help us if an Australian or South African was blatantly baiting people from other countries.

    No. Hopefully the pre-season cup is on Fox because none of the games are in Brisbane for the Roar.

    I'll go to just about every Roar home game during the A-League season though.

    And I'd expect nothing less than for you to go!

    So that's why 'Roary' decided to ride a bike around Suncorp.

    Nope...Ponting and Gillespie had both mentioned it before the end of the match.

    And I'm only saying that because I like him so much.
    I've never got around to asking you this before...why do you like Harry Kewell so much? Did he step on your duck?

    It wasn't the fact that it was a penalty, the proximity to the end of the match or the fact that he'd conned the referee. It was the fact that it was right in front of where I was sitting (by now standing, shaking my fist naturally), and the guy, while pretending to be hurt, had this stupid grin on his face.

    It was also the start of Derby's wheels working loose.

    I've hated Leeds United all my life, it seems, and this incident just typifies why they are despised - and not just by me.
    Ahha, sounds remarkably similar to a penalty we suffered in this World Cup...(no need to comment Marc! )

    (sorry. Supported Croatia because of the above, which is completely biased and utter nonsense, and I probably shouldn't post right now. But still...mmf.)
    The reason everyone hates the US team is cause they're from the US...

    and as we all know Americans make widespread statements about other nations without really knowing what they're on about

    Didn't know they were forum members - what's their usernames?
