The Commonwealth itself is a pretty bullshit concept. It's not as if British Imperialism actually benefited these countries.

haha, if we'd managed to lose the rugby sevens final (to australia, no less) i don't think we'd be capable of ever winning a gold medal again.

Man, that rugby sevens final was actually pretty exciting. About time something happened at the Games that actually had me on the edge of my seat.

New Zealand's never lost a rugby sevens match at the Commonwealth Games. Nice record there.

Yeah, but I'm immune to this because I'm not actually Australian and I live in Adelaide - which wasn't a convict city.

. . . am however, quietly pleased that the Aussie chicks came up trumps in the hockey there . . . that was one helluva game . . . and funnily enough, I was more excited by the fact that there was something that was actually entertaining to watch for what felt like the first time these games, than the actual outcome

How fucking painful was that woman commentator during the hockey tonight! The bias of the Australian commentators has been unbelieveable, but this was a new low.

During the rugby sevens final, they took a foreign commentary feed, and you wouldn't have known the commentators' allegiances (they were, for the record, New Zealanders, but that's beside the point). Meanwhile, with Channel 10's hacks-posing-as-commentators? When regular time in the hockey ended in a draw, the Aussie woman's just mumbling "this isn't fair" in a tone as if she was about to cry. Embarrassing.

There's a reason why, during the Tri-Nations, I watch New Zealand or South African broadcasts whenever possible.

^ watching channel 10 by chance? we have been watching the games with the sound on so low it is barely audible cuz the coverage has been so freaking abominable . . . so happily I was clueless to the bias . . . you have to admit that the second half was an absolute cracker though


EDIT - yes you are watching 10 and the commentators / 'reporters' should all be shot and made to watch endless repeats of A Current Affair or Today Tonight as punishment for their ordinariness

It'd be bad enough regardless of the situation, but when Australia has already won a billion gold medals, it's just flat out whinging.

Spare a moment for Tuvalu, Aussie commentators.

you don't know painful until you heard the rugby sevens commentary we had.

but see I thought the Aussie national past time was whinging . . . mayhaps she was confusulated and thought that was a commonwealth gold medal in the offing too?


diving just got a little fun . . . husband quite distracted by the canadian he has christened 'nipple woman' . . . her last dive was quite the stinker . . . landed on her back . . . big fat OUCH!

once again though am immune to commenatry . . . have some Queen on instead . . . way more fun
