With Australia's success in the Asian Cup making the final, it got me thinking:
How good would Australia be at soccer if it was not classed and treated as a third rate sport compared to Australian Rules Football, Rugby League and Rugby these football codes dominate the public imagination and game attendance. Most children dream of representing Australia in these other codes except socce.
All the talented players play the other football codes, the dregs choose soccer because they are not seen as good enough to make it in the other codes, soccer is seen as an easer game.
The Australian soccer season is played in the summer not winter because it cannot compreat with the other football codes because we see it as a dull and boring game.

A lot of the current top football players world wide were probably classed as 'dregs' so it would not make any difference in Australia. Its rare you will find any intelligent football players these days.....
All the best players come from council estates not universities.....
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
