For a none story this has had quite a life. Tim didn't help himself by ignoring the questions of the Socceroos major sponsor - FoxTel - after the Japan game. Then Mark Bosnich made matters worse by claiming solidarity with Tim for being betrayed by someone close to him. Then there was a supposed email from a Socceroo of 10 years - yeah right, just had to send it to loser NRL journo HQ eh?
Then today, Ray Gatt in The Australian - where did your common sense go? With your predictions of a split in the Socceroo's camp right up to the World Cup. Do you really believe that?
My summation, in the next few weeks this will be forgotten. The after-taste will be the continuing decay of rugby league and its journalism.
