Is it bash football/muslims month - again?

Rebecca Wilson didn't mention the Asia Cup once during the tournament, now she fires up all passionate and concerned about the dire states of our A-League Club finances.

Peter FitzSimons is all over the Australian World Cup Bid, dead interested in football he is, nearly filled his whole page with football (finances that is) fair enough perhaps but he hardly gave 100 words of wisdom in the two years of the bid, not even in his boring repeated Xmas columns.

Dicky Hindsight is trashing our Footballing Fozzie for talking over-enthusiastically about "our great game, it's great traditions, the indigenous code, our great fan culture." Isn't that the language they use in AFL - hey Fozzie not allowed to talk up football mate!

And of course in Melbourne they are stirring up a treat.

Football fans most violent is running hot alongside, stop the Muslims, don't fly them Muslims to their parents funerals and why is the NAB Cup not getting 100,000 people at every game!

February must be dead news month!

Come who is next bring it on - we football fans love yer!

More good thought Eamonn. I can feel your frustration.

Speaking of Muslims though, maybe we need to learn from the Arab nations' uprisings. We can outflank the coroporate interested media with social media.

From a Brisbane point of view, where Brisbane Roar are clearly THE news headline, it's become absurd. The 'football violence' shit in Melbourne has also been absurd.

We're actually in a position to expose News Limited sports news as the massive corporate PR exercise that it is, seeking allies in games like basketball, athletics and ALL women's sport.

I'm rambling, but in short I think we can use News Limited's arrogance as a weapon for round ball.
