    More Gold for Australia in the Olympic Spirit stakes with this reaction from the water polo coach to a controversial decision leading to a draw with Hungary. Also picks up gold for best spray so far:

    "The referee is an arsehole as far as I'm concerned," How's that a kick-out [exclusion] at the end of the game? We're up by a goal, we don't want to give away an exclusion, we foul the girl, we're trying to cut back. The Hungarian player has hold of us and we get excluded. That's just total bull**** as far as I'm concerned. I'd like to kill the bastard.

    "It feels like we've been robbed, … That was the most important game in our round. We win that game and we're looking good and they're struggling. Let the players decide the game not the stupid bloody referees.

    "The players tried their hearts out for four quarters, and the referee goes and cruels it for them," McFadden said. "It's just not fair."

    Now that's gold medal stuff.

    No chance, a few more gold medal hopes here and there but going quiet once the athletics starts obviously hurts. Not going to be close to our efforts of the past couple of years.

    Still a chance of 5 gold in the pool (Jones, Sullivan in the 50, Trickett 100, Hackett 1500, Womens medley relay), 3 in sailing, 2 I think in the rowing, then don't forget the Kookaburras and the Opals. Oh, then there's a chance of 1 or 2 in the track cycling.

    I'm sure there's another 2 or 3 obvious ones I'm missing as well. I don't think we'll match our efforst of the previous 2 Olympics, but I reckon it'll be close.

    Yeah, I know, no chance for third though.

    Think I'm right in saying that all of our gold medals have been won by Queenslanders!

    How good are we!

    Yep, still tainted by the stigma of Sir Joh.

    Anyway, one of the great Olympic moments for Australia if Hackett wins on Sunday.

    Absolutely frothin for this.

    If Heath Franklin aka Mark 'Chooper' Read posted on here, he would tell Tamsyn Lewis to harden the **** up after she broke down in tears after her 800m semi. Well I assume so anyway.

    Yeah think so. Ben Austin and his mate are leading their class as well, and I'd say they'll grab the gold given they're the world champs and as good as unbackable favourites coming into the games.
