    Hoping the 3 Channel 7 digital channels have different sports on them, rather than the same sport on all the channels.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Anyone got a tip on who will carry our flag in the opening ceremony?
    I'm going for Cadel Evans, great Aussie who has a huge dig, he's the all round great ambassador for the country and I hope he is chosen.

    Seems Tompkins is $1.05 with bookmakers to be the flag bearer, so that's a fairly decent prediction.

    Reading HG Nelson's latest book at the moment, and I can only whole heartedly agree with his analysis of Australia's prospective medal tally.

    Invoking Roy Slaven's theorem:

    To ascertain Australia's prospective total medal tally (of all colours), you take the number of gold medals on offer and times it by three, giving you our likely outcome.

    If we come in outside a 2% margin of error from this formula, then the performance is un-Australian.

    Trickett - gold - 50 free, 100 free, 100 butterfly, 4 x 100 medley relay, silver 4x100 free
    Schipper - gold - 200 fly, 4 x 100 medley relay, silver 100 fly
    Rice - gold - 200 IM, top sort in the swim team, silver 400 IM
    Jones - gold - 100 breast stroke, 200 breast stroke, 4 x 100 medley relay
    Sullivan - gold - 50m, silver - 100m freestyle

    Pressure much?

    Sounds nice in theory, can't see it happening though.

    Ten golds, not bad.

    Fairly sure Rice won't win a medley gold though.

    Also, agree with Julian. Mottram my favourite Aussie tbh.

    Don't reckon Rice will grab a meldey hold either, the Yankee chick (Katy Hoff?) always seems to have half a second or so over her. Obviously I hope it's the other way around this time.
