  1. Frank Lowy who led our bid and was so diligent and tireless in working toward the goal of Australia holding the World Cup in 2010 was absolutley devasted when he realised it had all been for nothing.

    Frank Lowy said that when he walked into the auditorium to hear the vote, he realised immediately (before the vote was taken) that it was a lost cause.

    How?

    He said that when he looked toward people who he understood were friends, and who had undertook to support our bid – they would not look him in the eye. They averted their gaze and he knew at that moment that we were “gone”.

    Not only that but at that very moment – Al Jeezera was broadcasting the outcome before Blatter had even opened the envelope that contained the “mystery” winner.

    What a farce the whole thing was to be sure.

    Franl Lowy is a class act, a true gentleman and a great Australian.

    His life story is an inspiration for anyone who is prepared to work hard, overcome obstacles, and achieve his dreams without fountains of oil flowing from the ground to line his’ pockets.

    He took the blow well. He said he was devasteed but then added, that he would have more battles ahead – and these were battles to be won..Well done Frank and the team.

    I salute you. You are a champion.

    We are all very proud of Frank Lowy here in Australia despite only one vote we got from one true firend – whoever that country is.

    That one vote in no way reflected the merit of our bid.
