Australia in Olympic Funk

I wonder if the Brits will blame Gordon and NuLabour for this one?

Reading the press here you would have no idea that there were skirmishes in Central Europe. Certainly no coverage of the Brits winning the Olympic Medal Bragging Rights.

There is a certain tone of entitlement being denied in the way the story is being covered, especially with "drug cheats" beating out the Aussie Golden Boy and Aussie swimming coaches selling their secret swimming training plans for mega bucks to the Chinese who put them to work pushing the Aussie swimmer down to bronze. Greedy bastard is the tone of the article.

Get over it. It is just sport.

And if all else fails, there is always humour.
