I too dislike the use of the word "soccer" to describe football in Australia. But ultimately the only way of changing the vocabulary used to describe our code of football in Oz is for the sport to become more powerful. As long as it remains as (relatively) weak as it is now (culturally, economically, politically), the mainstream media and establishment will determine how language is used and we won't be able to defeat them. Btw any chance you can turn on replies for your posts? :)

Replies has now been activated. Sorry I wasn’t aware this needed to be turned on. I’m still relatively new to blogging. Thanks for your message and I totally agree with you 🙂
