New Zealand wins AUSTRALIAN Rules World Championships

http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,...9a1823,00.html

New Zealand are now the World Champions of Australian Rules football. Yes, that right - a game desinged, contrived and names after Australians has been ruled over by.... New Zealand.

Such are these times.

Australia didn't even make the final.

That's too much!

I can't understand Aussie Rules football to save my life (my father and I have tried to watch it numerous times, but it just doesn't click with us). But I salute any game in which the Aussies get humiliated. Especially if the game is named after them!

I saw this and just burst out laughing.

Take THAT, Australia!

This is a tornament for all International teams.

Geez, Australia's doing poorly at the moment. Not only can't they win the rugby or the cricket, but they can't even qualify for a tournament of a sport they invented!

I'd hate to be Australian right now. Or at any other time.

You Kiwis have Little Man Syndrome. About the only thing you CAN do is rugby and sheep herding, so you gloat. Because you need to.

We play a tiny violin in your honour. It's tiny. Like your country and talent pool.

If you didn't stop taking credit for every fucking thing we did or produce it would be a lot bigger.

We didn't make your cricket team shit, make you sell your army, or use you as a guinea pig for the GST, so calm down mate.

How old are you, out of interest?

Now, now BEG!
Actually, I just read that petrol thread in lem stand and now want to shoot myself for what we pay over here. I reckon NZ is going to be the same. But we aren't (techniclly) poms, and that is all that matters!

In the last 5 days of test cricket played by New Zealand they have won 2 tests... Australia has....uh a draw. ... so I'm not quite sure where we got shit.

Our army may be weak... but then you have to think the only remote possibility of attack comes from your coastguard... I kinda like those odds.

GST does not apply on non-grazing animals, thus discussion on the application of a Goods And Services Tax on Guinea Pigs (or any member of the rodetia order for that matter) is irrelevant.

I'm 18. I have lived roughly half my life in each country, so I'm fairly objective about the whole thing.

New Zealand played test cricket against whom?

If they hadn't won those two tests it would have been a disgrace.
