Australian Socceroos: Ever wondered why so many Australian footballers play overseas?
Update : Brisbane Roar’s convergence to the mean.
Views from the government funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation about the Australian Socceroos and Australian football:
lead up the 1998 Grand Final the ABC used the
'transvestite wogball' approach in James O'Brian's segment
'What's on in Sport '. A typical strategy by the organisation! Of course he never includes football (soccer) in his programs. Then when rugby league (packielackey) players smear human poo all over hotel walls (Feb 1999) he says "It has nothing to do with it (packielackey game to be played on the weekend)."
are still at it in 2011!)
This type of treatment by the Australian media of Australian football (soccer) is typical. There is one rule for soccer and another for packielackey and tiddleywinks.

don't play cricket in South Africa because it takes three lots of co-ordination
to play cricket:

It appears there is a rule for one lot and not another.
Not to mention the pitch invasions at the cricket in the Australian 1999 summer.
Why is it that when Australia is playing cricket and the English fans or Sri Lankan fans carry their national flags the commentators talk in glowing terms about their national pride, but when English, Greek , Italian, Iranian, Korean, Japanese, Swedish etc. go to the soccer they are wogs?
Or as one football fan puts it:

mainstream Australians, watching mainstream Australian sport, provide the

And there is more...
Attacks in the media continued with calls to stop all sponsorship of football.
As another fan points out
this tosser drive time host called Steve Price went absolutely mental
on Monday slagging off football, the supporters, the sponsors, in fact
anyone connected to the game. He called the fans a boorish, lunatic,
hooligans (no exceptions everyone was included), said that no sponsor
should be involved in football, said that a South Melbourne sponsor had
been involved in smuggling alchohol(sic) into the ground, questioned why any
government should fund football programs."
buy that other beer anyway- where were they during Australia's build-up to the
conspicuous by their absence.
publishers of Frank Farina's book - one of the first international stars in
Australian football had
withdrawn due to the publicity. Corporation bigotry is alive and well in Australian boadrooms.
What on earth has this got to do with Frank Farina?
Eventually the book was published but not without resistance. And what a controversial book it is too. It exposes the ex-Australian coach Eddie Thomson. Except that he was a good guy not a bad guy.
Now when packielackie players smeared human poo all over walls in hotel rooms and peed on cars from the balcony in February 99, the Murdoch packielackey press reports it as 'a PR hiccup'.
The packielackey television argued that the players' careers are not over and that rehabilitation to the game is likely.
ABC said it was all 'good' PR.
Other comments such as that by the Sydney Morning Herald that rugby league is ingrained in the 'Australian psyche' or should it read psycho?
Now the recent exposure of genitalia to a stunned Irish woman at a hotel by one of our illustrious ARL players in the build up to the ANZAC test and its muted media response is another example (21st April 1999) of the rule for one lot and not the other.
Imagine had it been a football player i.e. soccer player.
What would have been the response by the bigots in the media here?
And the writers in the packielackey newsgroup claim that I am paranoid!(see newsgroup archive posts at end of article).
It is they that are delusional.
Imagine calling an insignificant anal explusive game like that world class- no one hardly plays crappy packielackey!
Where are the calls to end packielackey sponsorship?
would have been the reaction if the players were footballers?
Remember the editorial barrage calling for bans of the Olyroos after their caterpillar celebration of the goal that finally sank Canada?
A rule for one lot and not the other.
It appears the effective monopoly media has one rule for Murdoch's packielackey and another for football (so-called wogball).
To a biased press,
What about the baton wielding, capsicum spraying troopers at the football?
Wolves v Spirit (Feb 98)- fans riot or was it a police riot?
Here is a report from a fan at the game:
"As per usual the press has blown the whole incident out of proportion.

be part of the entertainment ie chase the wolf competition.

wonders if it is all orchestrated?
Sounds familiar. Read on.
Then there was that tiddleywinks team (Victorian rules side) that was banned from Vietnam by the Vietnamese government because they demolished the hotel in a drunken stupor. This seems to concur with their attitude to foreigners. Almost total silence in the media. No uproar , just an- oh well. QANTAS the Australian airline carrier has on numerous occasions expressed concerns for passenger safety because of tiddleywinks and packielackey players behaviour.
This is the sport that claim they are he-men. Yet players are suspended for tripping (April 1999)! Tiddleywimps might be more appropriate. Half tackles at best!
The effective media monopoly owns not only the free-to-air, the pay TV, the newspapers, the magazines but also the telecommunications network .
Is it any wonder that they also own the dodgy leagues?
it any wonder they control the gambling outlets, buy the internet content
Is it any wonder that they attack people's origin and heritage because they follow soccer?
Is it any wonder they ignore their own codes of ethics?

The government's pandering to the whims of the corporate media bigots is well known in a country where free speech is limited due to the wealthy's ability to use torts to extract silence from dissenting voices in the community. Politicians even use torts when the media criticice them.! The media owners, well they own the media but if anyone dares to say anything about them they immediately use their wealth to suppress freedom of speech.

Colosimo was raped by a mad tackle from Carlos Llamosa in the 90th
minute. Carlos' two legged challenge got himself all of Simon's right leg
and knee, and a red card to go on top. Raphael Bove came on as the Colosimo

That was the friendly!
The blackout continued because of the anti-competitive practises of the ignorant monopoly media. Yet they give saturation coverage to packielackey teams that tour for months at a time due to the lack of other teams to play.
Then rights have been bought to Socceroo games by the Seven Network (a tiddleywinks' station) and they are not televised. This is the height of anti-competitive practice.

Well, that has been documented already. A case of- not again!
The appalling and scandalous thing is that the IOC have granted monopoly media rights to the organisations that actively promote these views.
Stoke's Joke aka Channel Seven had a complete blackout of the national league competition results. Despite over 18 000 attending the soccer to watch Perth Glory go top of the league there wasn't even a report of the result on the 'bigot space' i.e. Channel Seven the Olympic monopoly holders (except in Western Australia).
Then there are others with different views such as:
only reason that channel 7 bought the rights to the NSL coverage is
so that they could show none, thereby allowing Optus to have a jump on the
market for Australian soccer coverage. The reason for this is that the
seven network owns a very large number of Optus shares. This whole move is
purely business oriented, because the seven network couldn't give (two-hoots)
amount that they do is only a further insult to the football watching
This is unlikely because by restricting access to the very few, the public audience has been limited to a narrow geographical base. It has been rumored that Seven will sell its share in Optus, but then who owns the rights?
it a case that Stoke's joke is to avoid competition ?
Otherwise the rational thing to do would be to show the games on the national free-to-air. They already own the pictures. They do not however use them. Why not?
Fortunately there is an ABC coverage, but since SBS have been pushed out of the commercial sphere, the Australian public has had very limited information about the Olyroos and Socceroos.
Never before in the history of Australian media has there been such a complete black-out of the Australian national teams.
Now that is anti-competitive.
How will they treat the footballers when the Olympics arrive?
Well now that's well documented isn't it.
Will it be a case of a bigoted end to the millennium in Sydney 2000?
Unfortunately it appears so.
Or as a fan commented
it's not only Channel 7 that's the culprit here. What about the

There is an ongoing blackout of match results in Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) news bulletins from the National Football Competition. Their official policy is that football is 'not newsworthy' presumably because it is played by people of all origins and backgrounds.
The National News Editor's policy is "... consideration must be given to the newsworthiness of various news items." Interestingly full houses at the soccer are not reported but 4 000 at the packielackey receive saturation coverage. News of packielackey and tiddleywinks make the news after the game but football not till .

resulted in huge financial losses to Australian football and individual administrators, coaches and players falsely

apply his trade as a coach in
Frank Farina in his book 'My World is Round' says of Eddie Thomson,
"This episode showed me that that the players were more than just two feet and a head to Eddie. He tried to look after players and advise them outside of football which, for me, is part of what made him such a special coach".
Eddie also had many notable victories:

What was his crime? His crime was attempting to promote Australian soccer and giving players opportunity to play in the best leagues of the world.

that you'd swear there were only a dozen people. That's two weekends in a
row, both involving the Spirit."
It is becoming apparent that the rights to Australian soccer have been bought to stop coverage and to limit its exposure to the public. It is these same organisations that hold the exclusive rights to the olympic coverage. All indications are that there is to be another blackout of football news at the next olympics in Sydney 2000. This may be last gasp attempt to stop football in the old millennium to which these types of media organisation belong.
We have the World Cup in Asia in the new millennium. Hopefully technology in the new millennium will make football information available to all Australians and reduce the monopoly control and anti-competitive practices of the Australian media.
Of course the Seven Network who own the Olympic rights to 2000 games have used their ownership to not show Australian soccer games on its free-to-air network.
The buy-out of Australian soccer rights to the free-to-air networks has been used to avoid competition by not showing games on free-to-air television. The ABC coverage though quite good does not allow commercial sponsorship and so football cannot compete on an equal footing as the right to do so has been bought by Seven and not used. Why would they do that? To avoid competition?
the government in Sydney then saw fit to ignore the football fraternity in its
organization and appointed
packielackey administrators to ensure that football at the Olympics is not properly promoted! These appointees
have no knowledge nor desire to promote football. In fact the board is full of packielackeys! There organisational skills -non-existent and attitude to people of other nations (wogball followers) is well known. Now they come from an organisation whose vested interest is to stop football.
thing then happened in Brisbane, another location of the football tournament.
The administrator is from The packielackey code and
whose interest is in not promoting football at all. In fact , they have
stadium away from the football stadium to the packielackey stadium. In a peculiar burst of realisation there has been a move to the IOC but the essentials of the argument still hold. All the benefit of the stadium upgrade will
go to the other codes, and football will miss out on the use of the stadium after the Olympics. This leaves football without a stadium of world class quality anywhere in
a result of the Olympics.
The stadium situation for soccer is so bad in Australia that Soccer Australia's newest club Northern Spirit cannot get decent facilities and are obstructed from improving the crowd comfort which have been around the 16 thousand mark. The playing pitch is treacherous with a cricket pitch in the middle. On all accounts it is also a treacherous wicket. This situation will also exist after the Olympics.
were also made to stop the football finals from being played in the main
Olympic Stadium. It was
argued they would interfere with the closing ceremony-but the real reason was to stop access of football. There
was even discussion of playing packielackey before the Olympics to open the stadium in the ultimate insult to the
Olympic movement. The packielackey code has a history of attacking players of football as 'wogs'- hardly the
the members of the Sydney Olympic Games Organising Committee in charge of the
football tournament are from the packielackey stable and have free access to FIFA marketing
expertise which has been denied to Australian soccer, it is now intended to open the Olympic
Stadium not with football but with rugby league.
The expertise in marketing brought by FIFA is still lost to soccer. The stadiums are still lost to soccer. Footballers will again be forced to played on sub-standard pitches while all the benefits of these stadiums are to go to other codes and sports. The use of the Olympic Stadium by football will be limited to when other codes are not using it. Packielackey for instance requires only thick lush grass and a soft surface and it is unlikely that an even bounce and level surface will remain a feature of the stadium. This is the experience from the other 'multi-pupose' grounds where the ground surfaces resemble crater fields with multiple markings rather than football fields.
The defilement of the Sydney 2000 stadium is to be complete, with the packielackey (rugby league) opening and its attitude to international sports people is well known- wogs playing wogball (footballers playing football). But then one only needs to look at the composition of the board to realise their attitude.
In an amazing turn-around it now appears that soccer will actually open the stadium with a FIFA approved World XI v Socceroos match. It appears that at least somewhere the Olympic spirit lives and fair play seems to have triumphed.
How wrong it is to even contemplate such a thing!
The opening game will be packielackey and no wonder given the members of the board. A full house is expected for the double-header of packielackey at discount prices. Then the used multi-lined, divoted surface of a stadium gets a second-hand opening with FIFA World XI v Socceroos at ticket prices in excess of $A140 played on the defiled turf! Compare that to the under $10 tickets for the packielackey opening with most tickets at $A5. An organised and premeditated attempt to further down-grade football by the packielackey administrators- you can bet on it!
The Prime Minister of Australia in typical weak-kneed fashioned oversaw the end of the last semblance of any olympic spirit for the millennium ending Sydney 2000 games as the packielackey teams emerged on March 7, 1999 into the Stadium Australia. The packielackey defilement of the Sydney 2000 Olympics is now complete with almost a full house in attendance. With continuous use of the Stadium by packielackey up to the games the result is an old stadium for an old century with old multi-marked lines, an old soddy surface and an old bigoted board. The media shouts world record crowd! Bull, there were two games on not one!
The board of packielackey cronies want desperately not to play football at the ground during the Olympics. Why is that mate?
Prediction: a total media blackout of the second-hand opening event- football in Sydney by the packielackey media. How will the players be treated? A predictable "Oh no, here are all those wogs."
result is a second-hand stadium for the Olympic Opening Ceremony by the group
that has used
the 'wogball' attack to justify its own sport. Not only that; this sport has only just started to test for
drug use of its players. And guess what? Rife throughout the game. Now this is a great
advertisement for the Olympic movement and Olympic spirit here in Sydney.
And in all this, there is not one Australian soccer stadium that can be used in local or international competitions from the considerable building projects without hard cricket pitches in the middle of playing surfaces or without the heavily sodded, long grass , soft surfaces typical of rugby league grounds that increase the risk of leg injuries to the mobile players of football in this country.
