The Dally M Medal ...
I was watching the news and saw that John Howard presented Andrew Johns with League's most prestigious individual award.
John Howard?! WTF is that about?!
I'd puke if I saw the PM give the Brownlow Medal away - can't they get a previous medallist? Is it a Kerry Packer/Channel 9 thing or what? He shows up and presents at the Allan Border Medal as well.
"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."
