Non Cycling.. ??

your on crack


It does get very poor coverage esp on TV (apart from the
10 seconds on the news and the SBS).
And in terms of popularity, I'm not sure if it'd
be in the top 10?
Footy, Rugby, Basketball, Tennis, Soccer, Cricket,
Netball, Swimming, Surfing, Squash, ....
Anyone?

Anyway, the sport always reminds me of that final battle
scene in Star Wars where u get groups of X-fighters
ganging up on the opposition and launching one of your own.

You are correct. I read 8 in the newspaper.

Your forgot to mention the various incarnations of Motorsports (hugely
popular). And then when there's nothing else to fill the gaps, theres
darts, snooker, poker and tiddly winks. Anything just so so long as it's
not cycling. Afterall cycling just isn't "Australian".

And for God's sake, why do we get Lawn bowls on TV! I'm sure it's just
because it's easy to report on.

Yeah...actually I thought that Lawn bowls might've had a chance of revival

after the 'Crackerjack' movie.
