Fair effort with the injuries he'd sustained don't you think? He did almost die in the aftermath.

I see your points lads, but at least the media saturation surrounding McCartney is deserved - he is raising money for charities with this 88 thing after all - so it's not even all about him.

Makes a refreshing change from hearing about Collingwood, McGuire, Buckley, Malthouse, Tarrant, the Magpie guernsey, the Magpie emblem, wipe off 5... etc etc fcuking etc.

"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

the guy saved lives by pulling ppl out of fire, hence sustaining life-threatening burns himself, he almost died and deserves a medal for saving lives as well as the saturated media coverage for charity purposes as well as for simply making it back to play one of the toughest sports in the world whilst hes still healing.........


idiots!

yeh they have, i s'pose its got to do with the fact that australia took it as a personal hit, so this was extra special, and as far as im concerened to almost die and still make it back in 6 mnths to play afl when the body is still healing is un-fu(king-believable

i wouldnt say its BS, but no-1 knows how certain individuals would react...that last sentence of urs............well look every1 is entitled 2 their opinion and yes their has been media saturation, but knowing now that he was planning on retiring from mid-week, well im glad he got all the attention, im a tiges supporter and it killed me losing to those lowly ferals by a kick, but when u consider his teammates were playing 2 send him off in style, how could it really have finished any different? a perfect finale............ just like he got all this attention in the media..... all sorted in the end, have some compassion u heartless bastard
