    Three cheers for them! This story made me want to move to Australia. I could see this happening in the US maybe when hell freezes over.

    I wish I could look at this and not be cynical.

    This is a PR stunt.

    To put it into context the game is suffering an image crisis due bad press from players bringing a drunk girl back to their hotel room and then she gets gang raped by up to 4 to 5 of his fellow team members.

    Then there is the drunken brawls, assault charges, drink driving and drug convictions.

    I don't think too many Australians are overly impressed with the campaign and see it for what it really is.

    Your cyicism is understandable, given recent allegations of group sex/rape, drugs and violence involving rugby league players as well as some incidents involving Australian rules players. This is however rugby union, which is a different code of football in Australia, and has maintained fairly clean image.

    In Australia, there is huge competition between the different codes of football, both for talented athletes and also for audience. I think it might be a quite enlightened PR campaign to attract supporters and players with a social conscience, who are the majority of our population.

    To explain it again, there are FOUR major football codes in the country: the AFL (autralian rules football), the NRL (rugby league), the ARU (rugby union), and the FFA (soccer). They are all distinct from one another, each playing a different sport.

    Australia bans the sale of alcohol to its aboriginals. Harry Connick JR recently was a judge on an Aussie tv show where the contestants dressed in black face. It would be a cold day in hell for that to happen in America. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

    But they are still prejudiced right, because you say they are supporting gay lesbians. What about the lesbians that aren't gay!

    "Sydney Convicts"?? lol, at least there's a humorous nod to AU's criminal past.

    I'm sure there are actual gay wallabies, as homosexuality has been documented in countless other animal species.

    Prohibition still exists in some parts of the US, dont complain about Australia's efforts to improve aboriginal health.

    I saw the 'contestants dressed in blackface' incident live and though nothing of it. Dont try to push your cultural prejudices on another country, we didnt have slavery.

    As for gay rugby and rugby players supporting gay issues, nobody could are less these days Ian Roberts (rugby league) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
