    Your deadset struggling to find anybody from Queensland who was actually born here. All seem to be from Victoria/NSW which tells me a lot about the state if they all leave

    The irritating thing as far as the Barmy Army are concerened is the way that Cricket Australia have sold them high and dry. The leader of the Army said that he had talked to Cricket Australia beforehand, and they had promised them that Billy Cooper would be allowed to play his trumpet in the ground.

    To be honest, nobody can take the moral high ground when it comes to throwing insults and getting offended, not least Australia's players...

    There is a saying in Aust. 'copping it sweet' the Aussie crowds did that in England and now it is the BA turn here in Aust.
    You know it makes sense.

    Have you read any of the posts in this thread? The Australian posters have been almost universally positive about the Barmy Army.

    Fully expecting that Andmark guy to appear and say that he thinks England will win in Brisbane. He'll have read the first page of the 1st test thread and then have ignored the rest.

    Not so, come to an area where there isn't a dominating Premier League football club.. Freddie and KP appeal to many a modern day football fan..

    The Barmy Army are tools.
    I thought they were but this morning confirmed it for me.
    Shane Warne coming out to bat for the last time at home with Symonds who had just made his first test century and what do those Pom losers do?
    They start booing.
    What a pack of A-holes.
    Thank goodness there was enough Aussie supporters to drown most of it out.
