Why we love Australians

December 5, 2006

It used to be that news reporting, including sport, was good solid impartial journalism.

Watching the Aussie Ashes coverage tonight made me sick.  Yes, England capitulated once again, but the incessant Aussie commentators just going “You Beaut”, “Warney’s a Legend”, “Go You Good Thing”, every five minutes was just too much.  To be honest it just pissed me off.   They even called this one of the greatest tests of all time!

Nobody likes losing, but there’s nothing worse than some gleefully grinning smug-ass Aussie cricket pundit someone grabbing you by the hair and rigorously rubbing your face in the dirt.

Whatever happened to a little bit of respect?

It’s no wonder the Aussies are so popular.
