Heh don't get me wrong, I hope we do manage to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

I guess my main qualm is, in relation to Menace's earlier post; is that I feel Australian sports 'in general' has slipped down a rung compared to the 90s when we were seen as one of the greatest sporting nations in the world.
1999 in particular. We held a stupid number of world champions. But i think even now we do a lot better than countries with larger populations and resources. I mean look at the commonwealth games (i know i know, theyre lame) but we thoroughly dominated everyone even with people pulling out. Thats a decent effort
