Should be a great sporting spectacle ahyways with the revamed MCG almost to the 100,000 mark.
well I'm sure there are other local names for respective national football teams. I remember in Belgium there were called Les Diables Rouges (The Red Devils), any many others. But there's just so much Australian national football teams you have to distuingish it, and there's no way people would waste saying "Australia's national rugby union team" or "Australian national football squad".Locke said:On a side note, can we start calling the team 'Australia', we gotta be the only team in the competition to a.)give ourselves a nickname and b.) make it sound like an under 12's school team.
It's the same people that think that soccer has absolute rights to the name "football" and all the other codes can get stuffed, despite having been around for just as long.dynamoultraclean said:What's with the crowd heckling Bracks for calling the game soccer?
