Discussing :: Do We really hate the Aussies?

#11

I'm not a fan of a strong Aussie accent, strong kiwi accent is pretty bad but Aussie one slightly more unbearable ...! We always must win when it comes to anything competitive :) of course. Never been to aus but would love to go to see tropical fish, reef, coral etc. and warmer weather.

Lets not get hate confused with good old-fashioned sporting rivalry. Besides the Aussies couldn't win a game of Solataire at the moment - you have to feel for them.

I don't think we hate them at all, we are (just like them) extremely competitive and both sides love the rivalry. It's a great feeling for both sides to push each others buttons, whether it be about accents, sport or where someone that made it big actually comes from (-:

yes, especially on the sports field. we relish in the Aussies losing at sport which lately has been happening quite a bit. It seems the Aussie sports teams and individuals have an arrogance, which adds to the trans - tasman rivalry. in my opinion it only adds an extra passion for us sports fans.

Half my family are Aussies so no there's no hating from me.

#16

Yes........No i dont think we do. its a friendly competition. aussies and kiwis are quite similar really.

#17

I think it is mainly in fun. On the whole it is harmless as it goes both ways. I think our countries would stick together if it was ever needed.

#18

Just a bit of fun taken too far by some people, push come to shove we would stick together.

#19

The Aussies are just like an older sibling, we will hassle them and annoy them but in the end we still love them.

#20

Only the arrogant ones , the other 3 are OK!
