What a Crock!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.abc.net.au/sport/content/s1031496.htm

Skaife gets Australia Day honours for services to motor sport, what-tha, when does the dummy spit to end all dummy spits and a suspended sentance for "bringing the sport into disrepute" constitute services to motor sport.

What kind of out of touch wombats give these awards.

I do commend snozz's efforts for charity but they are no more or less than many other public figures.

Next think they'll be giving Steve Irwin an award for child-care, or Steve Bracks an award for photography.

Go Figure!

Re: What a Crock!!!!!!!!!!!

I heard this on the radio this morning and thought it was funny. Services to charity?... Is that supposed to be the wins he let Ford have last season? Of course he'd never lose if he was trying!

Ha ha, I heard on the news Steve Irwin was a close 2nd to Steve Waugh for Australian of the year, just imagine if he won! Now that definitly would've been a "CROCK" for sure.

Re: What a Crock!!!!!!!!!!!

yea i give him credit where it's due

He is worthy of a medal.. he has been at the pointy end for years now and has taken the next step buying the team.. we are not talking about chicken feed here.. its big $$$.. add to that the time he and his family spent raising and donating money to charity, all the work he puts in with HSV ,, gee not many people have such a diverse workload and could still excel like he has...

One tantrum ( in the heat of the moment) shouldn't detract from his achievements

FFS we're letting Shane Warne play cricket again and he was proven as a cheat! A tantie doesn't even compare to that

Congrats to Skaifie
