They’ve Been Doing It All Day Ref!

1/. Stop Cheating 2/. Stop Whinging 3/. Play Football

It’s official, world champion whingers Ausfailure are also world champion cheats. FIFA has tried to dull the droning whining of the Aussie losers as they whinge and bleat and belly ache about the refs doing their jobs.

ON THE eve of one of the most important matches in their history, the Socceroos have been awarded international football’s unofficial ”unfair play” award.

Under the headline ”Australia’s red mist”, FIFA officials yesterday pointed out the ”unwelcome” fact that in the last four World Cup matches played by the Socceroos, no fewer than six players have been sent off.

Two Australians have been sent off in the present campaign: Tim Cahill for foul play in the 0-4 defeat by Germany, and Harry Kewell, more controversially, for hand ball in the 1-1 draw with Ghana.

At the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Brett Emerton was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in the 2-2 draw with Croatia, who had two players, Dario Simic and Josip Simunic, red carded.

And Italy’s Marco Materazzi was given his marching orders in the ”round of 16” match, which Australia lost by an equally contentious last-minute penalty conceded by Lucas Neill.

Coincidence? Bad luck? Bad refereeing? Or a reflection of how the Socceroos – and the teams they encounter – play the game?
