    It's vile that, after being vindicated completely at the hideously belated public enquiry, the innocent victims are still being defamed like this.

    As a side note it's interesting to record that Brett Lee's new bessie & all round hero Piers Morgan was an employee of The Sun at the time of the "pissing on the dead" article.
    The Hillsborough reference has been removed now. I don't have a link but found the piece on twitter last night and it was fairly innocuous with loads of comments at the bottom flaming them for editing the article but not issuing any apology or acknowledging the amendment

    First thing I did was look for an acknowledgement of the amendment. Incredible that they didn't do it. Journalistic integrity is dead.

    This idea that it's okay to troll the public with awful journalism is truly disgusting. Bourbon Bec and that snake Rothfield are the worst offenders. It's depressing that there doesn't seem to be a significant enough downside to discourage them from doing it.

    Good article, but the right play is not acknowledging her imo.

    I also dispute this:

    Itís this level of support from fans that has put rival codes to shame and sparked a universal acknowledgement that to play in front of a passionate crowd of 12,000 at a football game versus a stadium packed to the brim with supporters showing very little or no emotion is an unbeatable experience.

    but no biggie.

    I think the level of organization leads to an experience you don't get at other Australian sporting events. "Very little or no emotion" is a poor turn of phrase of course, but I think it's fair to say soccer fans generate more noise per capita than other codes.

    While it's good to ignore a professional troll like Wilson, I do like the fact that soccer journos stick up for the code. Wish RL journos would do the same, but most of the professional trolls ARE "RL journos".

    It also doesn't put rival codes to shame though. Its just a different experience. Being at a soccer/football game was one of the best experiences I've had, and the singing and chanting is great. But other codes aren't put to shame by not having that. They aren't trying to. It was a needless comment. Not saying its a big deal, just didn't agree with the statement and didn't feel it was necessary.

    I don't know much about soccer but get into the world cup. Couldn't help but notice a bloke called Robbie Kruse and how he good he is. Saddened therefore to hear that he is all but ruled out of the world cup with a knee injury at training with his German club.

    isn't it time to let Hillsborough go? It was very sad and of course the Police lied (as usual) but face facts no one is ever going to be jailed for it, just move on.

    Personally, I thought a lot was resolved on 09/12/12. But I can't speak on behalf of the families/those close to the disaster.

    The families seem okay, my Mum was a member of the union of catholic mothers with a friend who's son died on the terraces at Sheffield, his name was Peter Thompson, she had no bitterness about it. After all it was an accident.

    Man, Ecuador have been horrible. Just a complete mess defensively.

    Australia pretty impressive though, even considering that.
