No, I admit to not having heard of the Cronulla Riots. See what a guy can learn if he keeps my mouth shut for a few hours and just reads. I went
looking for info on what the Cronulla Riots were about.
Are they still selling these T-shirts? Sounds like I could use one to wear to a football game, now that the new season is near upon us.
and t-shirts read "# Allah, Save Nulla", "Love it or Leave it", "Wog Free Zone" and "We grew here, you flew here".
Of couse you guys don't call it football like we do. You call it either soccer or Australian rules football or rugby. I can tell you this, rugby is a
damn right popular sport in Florida. Not on television, mind you. There's just a lot of Aussies and Brits and Irish and such living in Florida who
join rugby teams not unlike Americans join softball teams. I've seen some damn good controlled violence at these rugby games.
There was this one memorable moment when a rugby player broke his ankle out in the middle of the field. I'm no expert on rugby rules, mind you. But I
did notice they didn't call a time-out simply because the fellow broke his ankle and was laying their in the middle of the field.
Now, the stretcher bearers, they stood on the sideline waiting for a break in the action to where they could run out onto the field to carry the
damaged player back to the sideline safety. Sure enough, as the two teams were at the opposite end of the field tackling and elbowing and kneeing each
other, the stretcher bearers ran out to the fallen player. They unceremoniously threw the hurt guy onto the stretcher. Then the ran full tilt boogey
back to the sideline carting their damaged comrade.
Sure to be told, the stretcher bearers were plum out of breath by the time they got to the sideline. They set the stretcher package down to reclaim
their oxygen. When a player on the field kicked the ball high into the air.
Now, I'm standing there watching the ball arc through the air, then come straight down to land on the face of the fellow with the broken ankle lying
on the strether on the sideline. Talk about adding your injury and some insult to the rest of the injury.
Yeah, I could use one of those Cronulla Riot T-Shirts to wear to a rugby game next time I'm in South Florida. If you guys are still selling them. The
ones that say: and t-shirts read "# Allah, Save Nulla", "Love it or Leave it", "Wog Free Zone" and "We grew here, you flew here".
I have a feeling such a poetic T-Shirt would be well appreciated at a rugby game.
