    Yeah. I had a handicap....once. It was at 24 about 3 years ago.

    Needless to say, I wouldn't be eligble for one now.

    Anyway, it provides a convenient excuse for any crap shot:

    "Now *that's* why I don't have a handicap..."

    :D

    Ohhh... Mine was 20. But that was when I was 15. And I haven't played since then. The mates always say that we should have a hit around, but it's one of those things you say you'll do but you never get around to it.

    Have fun though.

    I've never gotten the Jolie thing. Those lips are scary! And the movie looks ordinary.

    How'd that plastic mesh go in holding back those poms?

    Ha yeah I saw that on tele, I bet your Aussie compatriots were filling their pants, whole lotta Paki's comin after them with sticks and stones and fireworks.

    For the record we lost 2-0 but won the fights hands down.

    //and the crowd goes wild as number 17 in the green and gold gets sent from the field wooooooo [face_laugh]

    From what I saw it was just a bunch of New Zealanders packing sads after they saw their keeper was on the take.

    Jason Batty, All White Keeper.
    For being a complete and utter idiot in his own goal box.

    We could have won you know, both your goals were soft and/or unecessary. We should have had a penalty shot on goal after a blatant trip in the box but NOOOOO can't have that can we.

    Calm down, you had a player sent off for us for nothing you guys didn't do.

    I'm predicting 6-0 to Australia on Sunday.

    That's a rather large score line. I expected you guys to do more last night but I didn't think you were all that. Especially after the wins against France and Brazil.
    We're talking All Whites here, not tops of the world you know :D

    So NZ needs three goals to othing to win next time? I think I got that right, thats what caused us to get rolled by Iran last time
    can't wait for the next game

    Yeah, away goals count for two.

    Is Viduka or Kewl playing this week? It's only Australia 2 for goodness sake. Give us a game!!!!

    Anyone see the Rugby Yawnion? Britain score three tries to one and still lose. Penalties got Australia A home. What a sad game.

    Did you see the NRL's new plan to allow NRL clubs to sign Rugby players for whatever they want and NOT have it count on the salary cap! I'll bet Sailor and Brad Thorn will be back with the Broncos in no time.

    It's good to see the News Limited boys taking care of Brisbane again.

    I guess this is a close enough thread to ask this :) :

    Finally saw my first AFL game in about 7 years or so. Maybe more (thanks Fox Sports World, though the American commentators suck {Ya here me Lionel Bienvenue?}). When did the goal judges lose the suit jacket and tie and go with the polo? :( Nothing more wonderously bizarre than to see some guy dressed for a country club emphatically jab two fingers parallel to the ground! 'Cept maybe seeing that face in the mirror when I shave. [face_laugh]

    And since we are talking World Cup, nice to see my boys way ahead at the top of the group. Then again, when the rest of the group contains the likes of Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica and Honduras - not saying too much. Still, playing well with Bruce Arena at the helm. Now let's see of we can actually hit the INSIDE of the netting next year in Japan/Korea. At least once, for God's sake!

    AFL isn't really an Australian game so much as it's a Victorian game. I don't think there's going to be much discussion in here about it. Sorry.

    Knights go down by 40. I tipped Parramatta 42 - 0 in the tipping comp at work and was laughed at. Now I've one a meat tray!

    And I thought you were a Knights supporter, shame on you.

    I saw a bit of AFL in the weekend, it's too scrappy and uncordinated for me.

    All Blacks beat Argentina, Springboks beat France.
    I'm looking forward to the Wallibies V Lions even more now.

    Allan Langer? I thought he was an old dead beat now. Did they bring him back from the UK especially or is he back for good?

    It's called graspng at threads, I won't argue that Allan is bad, he is damn good, but i'm not sure if he'll measure up, but if Trent Barrett is out of the game due to injury then the Maroons (may as well call them the bronco's) have a reasonable chance.
    And we are off to south america for the soccer! 4-1, hopefully we get an easy team to play but I doubt it

    Yeah I saw it on the news last night, not sure that's it's going to be a good thing for Qld. Mind you I don't really care, I support NSW.
