Yes, the spectacular thing about Aussie sport is we throw an insane amount of resources into it (at the expense of the arts) and still manage to lose the cricket, the rugby, the tennis and freestyle tiddlywinks events.

If you measured GDP, sports expenditure and sports results against each other I'm sure we'd be on top of the world in getting the very worst bang for the buck.

On the other hand, given that we put about $1.50 per year into the arts, we've done remarkably well.

sufc.loyal, sorry about calling you British. Youse Poms all look the same to me, although with practice I've learned to tell our Scottish keys player and English bassist apart. One of them stands up to play :)
