HAL 6 Finals

Opinion:
A splash of yellow!
15/03/2011


For Central Coast Mariners fans, it is a day for the stragglers to get back from Brisbane, for the teary eyes and shattered looks of the nearly two thousand fans who travelled 2,000km just to watch their team attempt their 3rd Grand Final win in only 6 seasons. Ordinary fans; families, small business people, tradies, students, retirees - further than from Manchester to Munich - just to watch their team! ..

Editorial: 01/03/2011 - The editor of BOTN very rarely editorialises. In 11 years I think the need for axing Soccer Australia, the NSL review, input to and implementation of the Crawford report, Asia, MRP, and non-support for the W-League have stirred the dark recesses of BOTN's virtual office. This time it is the FFA again - what Australian football needs is "growth, promotion and stability" and the slow-torture axing of NQ Fury will not advance the Hyundai A-League nor indeed football across Australia. It is just wrong and the FFA should be held to account for its failures by the football community. Worth listening to:
