There's been many off topic discussion going on in here, not that that is 100% behind the reason to create this thread. We've had a few here before. It's good to get away from football sometimes. If you want to do that, just discuss anything in here, whether it be with Australia, the world etc. Who's gonna open up? :D No flaming.

So ... what are we all doing for ANZAC Day, if anything at all? I'm going to just be hanging around with some of my friends, and am going to an SANFL game with them.

Bit late I know, sae a bit of collingwood-essendon, then South's horror last 10 mins. As for the "tourists" who went to Gallipoli , pathetic. That's all I can say, no respect for their own history whatsoever. :rolleyes:

Yeah, mate, that definitely was a disgrace. I couldn't believe those people would leave that much rubbish lying around - I felt offended by it, and i'm not even Australian!

Supposed to be finishing off a University assignment but instead am giving a very solid argument to someone as to why cricket isn't a sport on MSN.

Not a real one. Cricket is for toffs and chavs, and anything that takes five days to do and you can't even get a winner out of it is not a sport.

I'd debate with anyone but you, since 'debating' with you is like a entering into a NASCAR race. As for the rest of your 'post', it was complete rubbish and even at 12:36am, I can find something better to do than read through your usual bollocky diatribe.

In every sence of the anology.

No, not really. You have argued cricket is not a sport based on;

- its for the upper class
- the longer form is played over several days
- draws occer.

When in actully fact its loved by about a 3rd of the world, mostly lower class in the poor countires in the world (India, Pakistain, Bangladesh).

Yes, test matches are played over several times. Similar to several sports such as car and bike racing.

Its commical somone with a love of soccer bags other sports for having draws.
