The au.fourfourtwo.com forums are provided for the enjoyment of football fans and to encourage discussion to help develop and promote the sport in Australia. All comers, who contribute with constructive comments, are welcome. Team and club allegiances are similarly welcome, but unnecessary flaming to incite arguments are not! Football is something to enjoy and when played beautifully… behold.

The rules are simple. Follow these and things will be just dandy:


No racism, sexism, bigotry or other discrimination.

No threats of violence.

No swearing, unless for rhyming purposes and that it is guaranteed to make at least 90% of all people here laugh out loud. Having said that, definitely no “C” words… not even with @#$%^ or & used as substitute letters! No swearing at all in thread titles.

No spam ads, they’re annoying. That goes for chain letters too.

No posting of inappropriate or vulgar material (i.e. of an adult nature).

No posting of links to live online streams of matches or other presentations that do not pertain to and abide by the relevant Australian broadcaster's copyrights. This includes providing instructions, and initiating other users to contact you via the Private Messaging service.

No defamatory or hateful threats.

No inaccurate or false posts about people, clubs, teams and/or supporters. Credit your source if posting or commenting on news.

No personal attacks on fellow forum users and/or moderators. Criticise the idea, not the person.

You promise to never use anyone else’s account and username or impersonate any real person.

You acknowledge that all posts made express your views and opinions and not the moderators or owners of this site and hence will not be held liable.

While we recognise the cultural diversity of football fans in Australia, all posting on Australian FFT is in English, so as to be inclusive of as many readers as possible. Blatant disregard of this rule will result in suspension and then banning from the site.

Haymarket Media reserves the right to reproduce any comments or posts submitted to au.fourfourtwo.com in other print and electronic media.


Please also bear in mind:


The moderators will attempt to remove or edit any objectionable material as quickly as possible.

Anyone who objects to a post is encouraged to notify a moderator. The moderators reserve the right to remove objectionable content if they determine that removal is necessary.

A moderator’s decision is final. Ignoring a moderator’s request will result in you being banned.

If you breach these rules, you will be warned once. Subsequent offences will result in your Username and IP address being banned.

Always check first to see if what you intend to start a thread about has not already been posted.

We advise you to ignore anyone on the forums who is unduly causing concern. If you feel strongly, report it and we will make a decision on the appropriate action.

On the weekend I saw a keeper came outside his area and took down a striker with a rugby style tackle, ball played around keeper and he then tackled striker both arms around the legs. with no other defender in sight....It was clearly deliberte and in no way was the keeper ever playing for the ball as the ball was already well played passed him. The referee rules a freekick and issued a yellow card... In response to comments from the fence about and instant red...The lines replied firstly it was to far out from goal and then stated that "last man in defence and instant red" was not a ruling.

I there anyone who has a correct ruling on this?

Should it be an instant red or was a yellow the correct ruling. Was the lines also correct in his "it was too far out"

ROFLMAO "rugby style tackle".

Some1 is full of sh*t: either you are lying or grossly exaggerating; or the referee is a complete dumbass.

Im sure if it were a rugby-style tackle, he'd be sent off without hesitation, and if the events did happen as you describe, surely he'd be suspended for several matches.

ROFLMAO Yellow card, rugby tackle!! =d> ooh thats a good one ;)

English is the only official language in Australia. The sound is no racism/discrimination "charge" or ethical debate. Sounds like you're full of shit, but we've all suspected that for a while.

English is your 3rd language? Need to learn a bit more. You don't have a suitable grasp of the language to even link my above comment to yours LOL. I guess i should explain the relevance of my statement. in english we have something called implication.

English is the only official language in australia, Says who? i will reference when you reference every other random, trash-filled quote you have made.... hence, any communication between citizens in this official language is not discriminatory; but your writing in Croatian for those who do not speak English as their first language, without translation in a public domain is. and i bring up the reference to discrimination since you had brought up "racism charge".

You mean you want to talk to someone who's not allowed to start a fight with you so you can say what you like and they have to grin and bear it.

It is irrelevant on what the official language of Australia is (which is obviously English..have you turned on the TV lately? Read any street signs?), the fact remains that Australian 442 reports in English and the forums are in English.

This is an English speaking website. If you don't like it, go find a non-English speaking website and spend your time there.

Thats not a racist comment, its a choice that you can make.
