LIVING in Sydney we have to put up with the Rugby League Mafia peddling there laughable, cringe inducing, brain numbing World Cup.
IT workers across the country are having conversations at their water coolers about alleged shit in the ice cream.
And like the middle child, I feel like Sydney FC is being ignored.Everyone knows the Rugby League World Cup is a joke.
Unfortunately the media in Sydney take it seriously. Papers have 16 page lift outs, photos of the French team at zoos, tales of the English team getting freaked out by the sun and wanting to go home, and Tongan props feeding kangaroos.
It’s the off season for the Thugby codes and Sydney FC should be front and centre. Office workers around Sydney should be concerned about Alex Brosque's groin and Brendan Santalab's shoulder injury.
They should be wondering whether Kossie will start John Aloisi or leave him on the bench.What irritates me even more is the field will be cut up to pieces. The silly season has started early for the A-League.
I’m talking about players moving to new clubs. Because the new clubs Gold Coast United (more hubris than a Greek tragedy) and North Queensland(wake me up when they start) are entering the A- League next year, out of contract players are whoring themselves to the highest bidder.
There is talk of Robbie Middleby and Ian Fyfe leaving the club and stories of every out of contact Newcastle Jets player wanting a move. This is a rare thing in world football - not players leaving clubs, that happens all the time, but announcements being made that players have signed with a new club while still playing for their current club.
That sort of behaviour happens in rugby league but the announcement of players leaving clubs in football is usually kept hush hush, at least until the season is over. Obviously this is to avoid the howling protests from fans and the boos that the players will endure once the news is made public.
Ask Simon Colosimo and Mark Bridge about their own fans booing them - and that was just speculation and rumour that they had signed with Sydney. Sydney and Cental Coast always have goals and extra feeling in their games and this Saturday night should be a good one as well.
Unfortunately Mark Bosnich is not there anymore, some of the Cove's best work was inspired by Bosnich.
However there is no need to fret, as we still have Judas number 1 Sasho Petrovski to vent our spleen at. Sydney to win 2-1
