I don't think we have the right to deny Aborigines a national RL team if they desire one, it won't disintegrate our Oz national team just as SSM won't disintegrate our hetero marriage. It would give the Aborigines more pride and something to strive for, just as Farah gets something out of playing for Lebanon.

On a few occasions in my lifetime Aborigines have attempted their nationalist inspirations - their Aboriginal passports were recognised by some of the non-aligned countries. It is not too far-fetched to consider in the future they may have a soccer team accepted by some progressive European, African and Pacific nations.Munk wrote: ↑Mon 16 Oct, 2017 10:40 pmEvery forum has its resident kook who thinks they are funny stiring the pot on idiot agendas...nice to meet you.Byron Bay Fan wrote: ↑Mon 16 Oct, 2017 6:43 pm
Strictly speaking, due to their being no treaty with the Aborigines the Aborigines have the legal right to declare an independent country. A precedent under different conditions was the broad acceptance of Kosovo, done without the agreement of majority ruling Serbia refer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internati ... _of_Kosovo
Talk like this does not help the "healing process" - are we all one or just some of us?
