This harmless vid sparked a gusher of gruesome elitist snobbery :
"What a devastating indictment of our education system and culture of proud know-nothingness"Some footballers don't know much about Australian political history so they should have to sit a test before being allowed to vote?
"Beats me why these neanderthal boofheads are 'heroes' and 'role models'...they’re brainless, mysogynistic idiots who chase a ball around a field."
"they really are only required to be able to grunt and tie their shoelaces."
"Yet Australia still has compulsory voting?"
"I want a refund of my education tax money."
"I haven’t seen a better argument for ending compulsory voting."
"how moronic do you have to be NOT to know only five prime ministers?"
"Footy players, AFL or League are by definition thick as two short planks. The come from the working class"
"Why would you expect them to know names of prime ministers when they probably need to take off their shoes to count the twenty?""This is the best reason I have seen to restrict voting to those who can pass a general knowledge and intellingence test."
"This is utterly shameful."
It's probably for the best those haters of Australian culture and democracy have somewhere to go to unburden themselves of at least a small portion of their spite and bitterness.
