What's the "requisite number" of speakers, and who decides what that number is? It looks to me though like European Australians behaved pretty much like European colonists did everywhere else, including plenty of places where there was a single widespread local language, so this seems like a post-fact rationalization to me rather than a good excuse for what happened.

I've no doubt there was a lot of diversity but that doesn't seem to me to provide carte blanche for the colonists to ignore them all; if anything it should have led to a heightened sense of the fragility of the local situation and of the sensitivity it called for - at least, that's how you'd hope people would behave today.

That said, I don't think there's any need to make excuses for the behavior of our ancestors. As I said, it was a different age. The point I'm trying to make is that we should be careful about saying how people who are not like us "should" act. It's very easy for people who are of the dominant race/culture/language to say what people who aren't should do.


It means populations. Most languages didn't have a great many active speakers. While there were some phonetically similar character among many it was more along the lines of what Italian is to Spanish than the form of German spoken in Germany as opposed to that spoken in Austria at one time.

But the sense comes across and you did the right thing.


I'm a bit rusty. :)

I did start learning basic Russian for a little while back and took to it surprisingly quickly for reasons I never understood until my parents told me I use to speak fluent Polish with my Polish grandparents when I was really young, and Polish and Russian from what I understand have some overlap with their language. I guess subconsciously it's all still in my brain, lol.

Do you have a link to the world rugby confirmation? Your wikipedia link has the Kenyan news as its source...

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Theweekend was free because its the weekend planned for an eventual relegation match vs Portugal.
The match vs Kenya is still NOT in the World Rugby calendar. Its not on the DRV Page. But that means nothing.

But, didn't someone earlier on in the thread post an article from WR confirming the same? It was in German, so i couldn't understand it. I dropped German in high school and opted for French. :)

And i transtlated it for you.
"A possible match against Kenya." That was the main statement.
Theres no fear. There is simply nothing official in this story.
Nothing from World Rugby.
Nothing from DRV.
Only a story from KRU. And we had the same story a cupple of times in the last years. a match against Germany that never happend.

German rugby patron Hans-Peter Wild about to buy Stade Francais ?! :shock:

The article is not really exact as they don't really understand, that he's behind Capri Sun and they wrote the given name of the German national coach wrong.
And I'm not going to make any jokes about German presence in Paris :D

This will make from SF a clear winner of the French league for few years, until a Georgian & a Yankee will take the team to give it back to the French. Hmm familiar story...Now on a serious note, interesting times for German rugby.This could be a great platform for you. Let's wait and see.

The possible idea behind that is dead charming! Take the oppertunity and buy one of the established Top 14 Clubs within the best Rugby League in Europe and you get a first class connection for the german Rugby Development with multitude of possibilitys .
It would be a huge wakeup call within the german Sports and Mediaworld! Mr. Wild do it!

It would be great if it happened! Link up the Germany academy with SF's expertise.

German rugby portal totalrugby.de on the "Stade Allemand"-topic:

http://www.totalrugby.de/content/view/8895/36/

Outtakes
- While Wild might have the money for it, the visit of Robert Mohr and Kobus Potgieter was nothing special. Just the year before they visited Racing Metro - to see the sport facilities and get a climpse how they do things"
- The Wild Rugby Academy has refused to comment on this matter until now.

Fun facts: Wild's father played for the Heidelberger RK. Notice that Wild is 75 years old and his father was born 1904. Some tradition there.
