I'm not sure what's funnier. The sign hovering above the yellow fever that says "CROWDED HOUSE."

...or that they misspelled "Crouded"
My name is Dr. Worm.
Good morning. How are you? I'm Dr. Worm.
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real doctor,
But I am a real worm;
I am an actual worm.
I live like a worm.
I like to play the drums.

Ah that's the crowd from last game. So that explains the spelling mistake in the crowd this time round.

Did anyone catch Mark Janko on Shootout (fox). What a f***ing classic this guy is. The mix of serious sounding german speaker, german uptalk, and jokes, it's just too much. "Yes at the moment he (Corey Gamero) showed me the Coco Pops does taste quite good." :lol:

I see Brisbane Roar are taking their three ACL fixtures to the Gold Coast. If they want to create a following on the coast, perhaps they should change their name to Queensland Roar.

It was more that they weren't sure if Dave Grohl was ready to slot in to the XI just yet.

What a fukn belter. The AFC has fined Brisbane Roar over a banner away at Urawa Red Diamond saying the fans were having a "whale of a time." AFC doesn't do politics.

Years ago when Persik Kediri player at Parramatta there was a "Free West Papua" banner hanging over the fence at the north end (until half time) and a fella in the away support was wearing a Kopassus beret.

Good times.

Football authorities in general only 'do' politics when they are schmoozing elected leaders to get special treatment wrt tax and the like for events like the World Cup. They find it much more difficult to schmooze leaders with questionable morals if the fans display banners reminding people of uncomfortable 'truths' :( So rather than let the innocuous ones slide as they could have in this instance, the authorities just take a blanket zero tolerance position on any banner that could jeopardise their schmoozing. Japan knows the rest of the world is against its whaling and it is a particular sore point for our Nipponese neighbours. especially when "big nosed whiteys" start 'lecturing' them.


Its not just AFC:
IIRC A couple of years ago in a UEFA CL game A German club were fined because its fans displayed a banner stating:the classic Monty Pythonism: "Romani ite domum" as the AS Roma players ran out onto the pitch. While the rest of the football world were appreciative of the rare display of German humour :mrgreen: :mrgreen: , UEFA were not so impressed.

Says a bit about Sydney FC that I can't decide if this is an April Fool's prank or not.

Could be a bit of that in it too. More so in Europe you'd think than here in Asia. Both first and second great unpleasantness occurred principally in Europe and also Lord knows those Balkan guys hold grudges longer than the Irish!

My basket case club look like getting most of their points deducted...

Let's hope Sage packs up his bags and heads home...done enough damage on the club.

Stop complaining. At least your club has points unlike mine this season.
But former Socceroo and Fox Sports television commentator Bosnich told SEN those statistics were misleading.
"Statistics are a bit like bikinis – they show you a lot but not everything," he said.
