To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised to hear dead serious similar comments from the Aussie media in the coming month or two, as they have this remarkable ability to forget everything apart from scorelines in Australia's favour. I'm just thankful the idiots at Channel 7 won't be doing commentary - though I'm worried about who Channel 10 will drag in. Commentators on the three commercial networks are easily the worst I have ever heard from anywhere in the world.

No, I though it was amazing, very well played out, very fair, no blunders or anything!

1992 World Cup was what cricket World Cups should be all about. Not as long winded and controversial and boring as 2007's.

... no blunders? Did you watch the final right to the end? Oh, no, of course you didn't: none of us could!

And the entire tournament's scheduling meant it dragged for what felt like three years longer than it should've.

Nah, I think the regular season of baseball is always a worse tournament.

And for all of us in Australia, Channel 10 has published their broadcast schedule. Unlike Channel 9, who believed that we really only needed to see a sixth of the Cricket World Cup (in hindsight, perhaps not such a stupid thought), Channel 10 are actually showing EVERY GAME. Here's the link: http://ten.com.au/rugby/match-schedule.html

I know I won't be sleeping much.

I'm a little hesitant about 10. 7 did a good job last time.

I don't care who has it as long as I get to see the games. Half the time, I mute it anyway because Channel 7 has some of the most moronic, uninformed, and just plain blind commentators on the planet. I don't think Channel 10 could really be much worse.

Any chance you got the odds?

New Zealand: 1 to 1
Anyone else: 1,000,000 to 0

Still no takers for "anyone else"!

Ay. Don't start gettin' cocky. There's a long way to go.



Do you follow the AFL? It's such a better sport that it goes beyond funny.

I have always said that in rugby, the men control the ball, while in AFL, the ball controls the men. In other words, AFL's good for entertainment, but rugby is a religion. In fact, if I could see the All Blacks win the World Cup or Jesus return, I'd go to the All Blacks game in a heartbeat.

As for the real odds, I understand New Zealand's on extremely low odds, lower than 2 to 1. England's 25 to 1. I think Australia's around the 13 to 1 mark and France 4 to 1.

Shit really? What's that in money terms? $1.20 or something? I don't understand 'odds' per se.

How do you mean the ball controls the men? And I'm the same. If it was Geelong winning the premiership vs The Second Coming I'd be at the Geelong game for sure.

But hey, I'd go to another U2 concert over it as well. There's a lot of things I think. But that's not to be discussed here.

I would have thought Argentina would be a threat.

And why doesn't anyone rate our victory against you not long ago? Did you have players out injured?
