I Hate Aussies / Aussies Are Ugly

For anyone who has been following the cricket lately, you will know that the Poms have been absolutely humiliated down here in their tour (they have yet to win a game out of how many double digit starts...haha).

But it seems an Irishman has stepped into the fray to defend the Poms (who would have imagined that. George Best, the man who is single handedly responsible for keeping Guinness in business, has come out and declared "I hate Aussies"

http://foxsports.news.com.au/story/0,8659,5654832-23212,00.html

Read the report first, then continue on.

From the report:

"What is it with Australians?" he raged yesterday. "I've never known a country to gloat so much over winning a sporting event.

Well George, you see, winners are grinners. The Poms, nor the Irish, would know much about that (ok...the recent Rugby aside).

"OK, so they are absolutely humiliating our cricket team in the Ashes, but I don't remember us crowing like this when we've thrashed them.

Yeah George, the problem here is, I don't think you could remember the last time the Poms beat the Aussies. So of course, your comment makes perfect sense.

And then there is this pearler...

Serially linked to a succession of glamorous women, including a string of beauty contest entrants, Best also lashed the Australian physical stereotype, claiming most Australians – both males and females – were unattractive.
"They should take a look in the mirror. On second thoughts, best not," he said. "Let's face it, apart from a few notable exceptions, most of the women are built like shot-putters and the men are verging on Neanderthal.


I wonder if George has looked at himself in the mirror lately? George, baby, let me tell you, its not your good looks which draws the women to you. $$$$ says it all.

But I think I will let Gibbo continue for me, in his comeback to George's outbursts:

Is it just me, or can others see this turning nasty?  Laugh out loud

He's just had a liver transplant! I'd like to see how fantastic you look after a major op, and months of serious illness (despite being self inflicted...)

Scotty,

Oh good lord mate, not the whingeing pom syndrome again. Cripes, they must be seriously p!ssed to complain this loudly.

Seriously though, Australia is in a most enviable position at the moment both fiscally, sport wise and people wise. Our economy is booming despite widespread drought and the terrorist threats against us, and our people are happy, sans the USA style "patriot" rhetoric.

Aussies have proven themselves to move with the times and *get things done*, we're educated, we're smart and innovative. People may lambast us as being just about sport, but it's that competitive spirit and years of telling ourselves that *we can* that makes us stand out in the crowd.

It's the community spirit and the *ave' a go mate* attitude that keeps us going - we may be changeing but we are still leading the world. People here are way more dynamic and changeable than elsewhere in the western world. We may work longer hours but our pleasure time is always filled with sunshine and fun. We have the lifestyle and the beauty of a fantastic country and we know it and want to preserve it.

My critique of your thread will serve as a reminder that who actually gives a rats @ss what the poms or the Irish think of us anyway? Is Perth so seething with expats that you feel the need to comment on their bitching?

We are the lucky country and will continue to be exactly that.

Yes but your crap at it as well, being crap at the one thing that - as you say - really counts. That must hurt !

By accident you have put your thumb on the nub of the problem. 1966 was a loooong time ago. You are now average at soccer, never were that good at rugby and as for cricket well you are at NZ's level if you are lucky (bookies have you at number 8 for the world cup).

Why not save yourselves the pain of excessive expectations which are all invariably in vain. Just accept reality and stop dreaming of the past, because it's well ... the past !

We are still technically better at football and have some world class players. The same cannot be said of Australia when it comes to football.

Better than who ? Morocco, South Africa, Malayasia, Mexico, Turkey ... ?

Actually scratch the last 2 because guess what ....

Better than Australia or New Zealand, big deal. That's like the US getting excited about being better at baseball, they bloody well should be !

Eg777ER, I second you on that one. I never heard so much bitching in all my life from Australians in London complaining about everything.

It is ironic that Australians like to rubbish the UK, yet so many of them go there, live there, work there, pay tax there. If it's so bad, why stay?

You also need to bear in mind that to an Australian, if you comment negatively about anything Australian, this is automatically interpreted as whinging.

Just put the reaction, or over-reaction down to an overly 'defensive' attitude.

Don't forget Australia is *perfect*

Actually Pacificjourney - the Aussies are definitely better than England at Cricket, Rugby League and swimming. We however are better than you at;

Football
Rugby Union
Athletics
Snooker
Darts Big grin

Plus a hell of a lot of other sports. Although we will never be at Australia's level at events such as 'Abo-emancipation' and 'Afghan-incarceration' we will leave those to you, the experts  Big grin



I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

For the 800th time I am NOT Australian - my father IS familiar to me.

As for rugby union, I renew my offer of money bets for the world cup. England the best ... put up or shut up !

I think it's quite common for people to move to another country and bitch about it and compare it to home.

An American friend of mine said when she was living in Toronto, the American wives would gather every Wednesday and bitch about why the USA was better than Canada and how they so missed home etc... so she stopped joining them after a while.

At a vacation job last year i worked in an office which had a fair number of australians. They kept whining about how they so longed to go back to Australia. So I asked them why not. "Lack of jobs there" came the answer. Others said that the pay was better here since the average tax rate was 15% compared to Australia's (is it 45 or 50% at the highest tax bracket?)

So I told them to make the best they could out of the present situation and go back to Australia with pleasant memories, instead of making their whole stay here unpleasant!

Because football is THE sport in England and the world, cricket comes nowhere near football in terms of money,importance or popularity. If England lose to Australia or anyone for the next 10 years, i doubt any englishman will be having any sleepless nights over it. England not qualifying for the next world cup will be nothing short of a national disaster, losing to australia in cricket is not much of a bombshell.

Bottom line is, football matters!
