hey I've got a sense this is a predominantly Aussie forum, if not entirely Aussie. Anyways, I don't get to talk to 'Oceanians' in my daily life at all so this is actually a pretty good platform to ask: as individuals in a culture that somehow survived the "SOCCER!!!" epidemic, and prob if you like sports you're an Aussie Rule, Rugby league, or Rugby fan ? ...a growing no. of NBA fans down there these days too... anyways as a fan of *that sport, how do you tackle the question of the appeal for soccer ? What bothers you in it as an outsider, what's a fundamental thing that lacks besides the obvious (not physical enough, they're pussies, no respect for the ref...) that your sport does supply ?
