he used to be quite a big pull on UK television, but his one-eyed support of Australia regardless of their form, and his constant "pom bashing" got a little boring and I think the public just ended up thinking he was a bit of a prick, although an awesome player in his time. He predicted England would choke in 2003, and after the tournament, one of the papers got him to walk down a main street in London with a sandwich board on saying "I was wrong, England were the best team" or something similar, but like I said, people were just bored of him by then. Only 1 paper turned up and hardly anyone came to watch or reported it. After that he has just faded away into obscurity. He was quite a celebrity here and could have made some nice money out of it, but screwed it up by revealing that deep down he really is just a bit of a tosser.
