Its the most important news in Australia! You immigrants have no ideas of what is sacred in Australia! Steve Waugh was a Gandi like figure in this country who is very important to Australian culture! You need to study the history books of Australia before you call yourself an Aussie! If you want to be ignorant about Australian culture then go back to the country you came from.

Steve Waugh! Gandhi like figure? are you on drugs??

I can relate to his great batting prowess or captaincy but can't understand the fuss over his "debut" on Dec 26? it's a tad overkill....
