Default Re: 2010 World Cup-South Africa

Football = passion, fierce loyalties, tribalism, entertaiment and common ground for many supporters. Of that, there is no doubt. But equating football to religion and politics based on the creation of ONE club in the Scottish league is the longest bow I've ever seen drawn.

If you want to treat it as your religion, that's fine by me..........but drawing parallels between the two for 'all and sundry' is as redundant as it is silly.

For many "football is a way of life"........for many, many more, it's nothing more than another ball game. For me, it's not even my preferred ball game........but I always enjoy the World Cup.

Now back to the game itself, what price Australia......surprised many on the upside 4 years ago......any chance of doing it again??
