How's the knee coming along?Boroboy said:As a long time devoted follower of FOOTBALL I'm in full agreement with ASA dropping the dreaded word 'soccer' from it's official title however it's going to be years if not decades before the general Australian sporting public start using the correct terminoligy for the beautiful game.
The eggchasers and the aerial ping-pong boys that 'rule the roost' in the australian sporting media will see to that believe me and who can blame them really anybody would be protective of their own interests would'nt they.
Here in Brisbane the local media rarely gives our local game any coverage whatsoever and although in recent weeks articles have started to appear about the Lions in the courier-mail you get the feeling it's all being said through gritted teeth!!

A proud day for roundball fans in Australia.
