    "Footie" is the holy grail in Victoria, Australia - fans cannot get enough of it. The term relates to Australian Rules which is a really exciting game to watch live - Go the CROWS!!!

    I often wish the 'Crows' would go, but the sound of the black featheered variety always tells me I'm HOME!

    I agree 100%. And what is more obscene is that Tiger Woods used to commend megabucks just to turn up at a tournamemt

    If Harry Redknapp lived in the 1800s he'd have found poor rates taxing and would have signed The Mark Of lol. This is a joke based on his claims that he could not read or write when up for tax evasion.

    Yes I agree that managers are overpaid and so are the majority of players. Today [unlike in my youth], sport is business and the owners only are interested in making money. As a result they pay what they [the owners] are prepared to pay and salaries go into the stratosphere.

    On Saturday last I witnessed via television, the game between Tottenham and Bolton and what happened to Fabrice Muamba.

    Along with those in attendance and the millions watching on television it was obvious that is was still a sport and that a young human being, regardless of race, colour or salary he earned, was fighting for his life and deserved our support.

    I, for one, said a prayer for him that night.

    Unfortunately some clown tweeted racial comments about the incident. Fortunately he is being prosecuted
