What does "football" mean in SA then, is it just a generic term for all such codes, or is it used to mean rugby or something else?

Would be used interchangeably with soccer.

I try to avoid Canadians. btw what was the name of the Kanuck who used to post.

I'd consider ice hockey a sport if they did not wear helmets and were not swathed in mattresses.

Yorkie Jill lives in Canada. Was it Sarah that was the Canuck?

I'm sure lardy or MB can remember.

It was Sarah. Eventually became JB or something.

Sarah is a Canadian.  CC = Canadian Chick.

JB was never keen to be unmasked, indeed resentful when queried, but the huge jugs were a big clue.

It's a more logical name given the number of other ball games with football appended to them.

Most of which rarely involve kicking the ball Wink

Was wondering the same. If so, is a bit weak as we were all having a larf.

Wally always was a bit highly strung. He'd get bent out of shape about the most minor stuff.

Anywho, I hope he's still with us.

So, reports of WW's flouncy demise have been exaggerated.

Great effort by the Matildas to go back-to-back v Brazil in a couple of home friendlies, but this was very disappointing...

"Kerr, and several other Aussie players, were snubbed by Brazilian defender Rafaelle as they went to shake hands with her following the 3-2 victory in Newcastle.

It was the Matildas' third-straight win over the South American powerhouse and was also their fifth successive victory to equal their longest-ever winning streak.

A petulant Rafaelle stormed from the field and ignored the outstretched hand of Kerr, while Alanna Kennedy grabbed a hold of it before she snatched it back.

Both Kerr and Kennedy remonstrated with Rafaelle but she wasn't interested in listening to them."


------------------------------------------

What a petulant bitch. Clearly not liking being on the wrong side of the ledger 3 games in a row to Aus. Sook.

Sweet Jaysus the Socceroos are utter shite.

Into extra time against a very average Syria. If it goes to penalties we lose because of the Syrians have had lots of target practice in recent years.

If we were against decent teams we wouldn't have a chance of qualifying for the WC.

50 international goals.

Australia now lead 2 - 1 but this has been a disgraceful performance by them.

They somehow win but it was very close - a Syrian free kick hit the post just before fulltime.

Oui, it's amazing that we get virtually gifted a passage to the WC with a pathetic team. There must be a better way of deciding who goes.
