Are the Aussie's farking idiots? Who wrote this reads like it was penned by a 7 year old?
2002-03-24 12:21:25 PM  
What do you expect? he is Austrailian
2002-03-24 12:21:38 PM

Wasn't at the oscars. The story is being printed now because he is up for an oscar. Bad headline. Bad headlines on mark make me feel secure in the knowladge that all is right with the world. i had a nightmere two nights ago that I read an accurate, expressive, and concise headline on fark. I woke up screaming, with the sheets wrapped around my head...
2002-03-24 12:26:12 PM  
he is such a cutey
2002-03-24 12:30:21 PM  
Who cares.........
2002-03-24 12:39:27 PM  
If he wants to fight so bad, why doesn't "tough guy" just get in the ring with Mike Tyson?
2002-03-24 12:43:18 PM  
Ummm can someone explain why this is cool??

"What do you expect? he is Austrailian" -- learn to spell, you bloody loon-worshipping-10,000-lakes-living-lutefisk-eating retard. Then, and only then, do you get to pass judgement. Oh, and "Go Gophers".

Crowe...Australian for hottie.
2002-03-24 12:46:50 PM  
OMG, that's, like, so, like horrible, you know? Russell Crowe is like, such a hunk. LOL!!!!1!! OMG, I, like, hope they, like, tell me if Russell Crowe like sneezes or something, because, like, with like, that, like, buttttarfly iffect, like, thingy, you know?

LOLOLOLOLoLL!!!!1!!!!

Jebus H. Christ. There needs to be a new rule: before mods approve an article, they have to go and actually READ the article. If the headline severely perverts the story, as this one does, we get to...I don't the mod all sorts of names or something.

For those too lazy to read the article, the footage in question was shot two years ago. In Australia.
2002-03-24 12:48:59 PM  
I agree, the guy who wrote this headline has a case of the stupids. Russell Crowe is also acting stupid. There are better ways to be a bad-ass then by playing fisticuffs with pub patrons. Ask Samuel L. Jackson.
2002-03-24 01:08:02 PM  
Celebrity boxing. Put him & Mickey Roark in the ring.

I'd type more, but "Big Trouble in Little China" is coming on...
2002-03-24 01:09:37 PM  
Well, you've seen him in LA Confidential, haven't you? He sure can kick some ass.
2002-03-24 01:17:22 PM  
All I know is, he got to throw the bone in Meg Ryan. Just the thought of her makes me run to the store for more lotion...

How to speak Australian: A-Hole.

Another link that says more about the FARK mods than the subject.
2002-03-24 01:40:06 PM  
Why do people always blame 'mods' for posting articles? MODS DON'T POST ARTICLES. Drew, Jeff, Mike and maybe 1 other guy post articles. ITS (most likely) DREW's FAULT. Know who to blame you monkeys.
2002-03-24 03:01:22 PM  
I submitted the same story from a different source yesterday with the headline "Russell Crowe. Oscar nominee. Drunken madman." Much more descriptive, I'd say. The guy is completely out of control. I heard a radio story a couple of days ago that some hotel was ready to toss his butt out because he was standing on the balcony of his room lobbing beer bottles into the pool.
2002-03-24 03:03:05 PM  
Well aren't we the righteous bunch? I suppose none of you has ever been in a bar brawl or gotten into it with someone who was in asshole mode? So the guy has a temper, big farking deal. He'll either get it under control or spend a lot of money paying for attorneys and fines or sitting his ass in jail. Besides which, are the facts correct? Did he start the shiat or is the blame being laid on him because he's a celebrity?
2002-03-24 03:14:26 PM  
Umm...aren't Drew, Jeff, and Mike out of town? Aren't they partying somewhere. This makes me think they are either drunk or hung over, or they left someone TOTALLY incompetant to post links this weekend...
2002-03-24 03:27:04 PM  
People shouldn't wonder why there is a smear campaign against "A Beautiful Mind"....Russell Crowe is a pompas ass.

This is an old story with an inacurate headline....but it's right on about Crowe. I think he's on drugs....something stronger than a little herby-herb too. He's in an aggitated state pretty often.....close to out of control at public events. Proboly on coke.

My bet is we find out Crowe goes to rehab within the next 5 years.

Crazy High Guy
No rehab needed....keepin my stuff in check...
2002-03-24 03:35:53 PM  
The fight got started when Crowe came out of a bar or pub or whatever they're called in Australia and a couple of girls squealed "Look, it's Russell Crowe." So he mocks them saying, "Oooo, it's Russell farking Crowe." They say not to talk to them that way and he goes ballistic, coming up to their faces and screaming obscenities at them. They get in a car to leave and he's walking alongside continuing to scream at them. After that, it degenerates into a brawl between Crowe, his friends/bodyguards, and friends of the two girls.

This isn't the only incident like this. The guy's an abusive, violent, drunken, hair-trigger horse's ass, just like Sean Penn, and I hope someone pounds his face in to teach him some civility. If I were a member of the academy, I'd vote for Peewee Herman before I voted for Russell Crowe.
2002-03-24 04:02:32 PM  
I think they just draw headlines out of a hat now and give them 'COOL' tags.
2002-03-24 04:08:59 PM  
Amen Jjorsett, If I were a millionaire I still couldn't go out and buy enough bullets for that loser's head.
2002-03-24 04:21:57 PM  
Where the fark is Coffs Town? The dopey shiat who wrote this article could have done some research - it's Coffs HARBOUR, dumbass.
2002-03-24 05:06:53 PM  
why is this guy so volatile? i don't get it. he has more money than anyone, people like him and go see his stupid movies, he has women falling all over him, he can have anything he wants - yet, he's pissed off at the world. I really hope denzel washington wins the Academy Award tonight because I'd love to see him start an impromptu temper tantrum right in the middle of everything.
2002-03-24 05:10:53 PM  
Crowe...Australian for loser.
2002-03-24 05:17:00 PM  
Aussie correspondent here ......

This is what happened. RC walks into bar in town near where he has a property. Some of the local girls swoon over him a. because he is famous b. because he is sexy.
Drunk boyfriend of one of these girls starts a fight with Russell. Russell defends himself. Do you think he is just going to stand there and take a beating?
2002-03-24 05:42:37 PM  
I don't think Sean Penn is like that anymore and hasn't been for at least 10 years.
I agree with your assessment of Russell Crowe having a drinking problem. I think he should do more bongs, it will mellow him out a bit.
2002-03-24 06:04:36 PM  
I'd fight him. Drunks are easy to beat up.
2002-03-24 06:12:48 PM  
Did any of you hear about his fight with MOBY? Allegedly Moby walked into the toilets, Crowe and his minders were there and he pinned Moby against the wall and said something to the effect of "You stupid Americans think you rule the world" shouted at him a bit more and that was pretty much it. Very weird guy.
2002-03-24 06:34:24 PM  
This just in, actor not nice guy.

Who the fark cares, as long as he can act? I don't want his autograph, I want him to entertain me when he's on screen.

It's about goddamn time we had an actor or two who wasn't a pussy in real life, anyway.

Did any of you hear about his fight with MOBY?
Moby: good music, idiotic politics. I'd pay twice for every Crowe film I went to for life if he beat Moby's ass.

"He is, like, firefighter cute."

"da da da"

Here is the real story:

Crowe was in a pub drinking with some mates and a cocky kangeroo walked in, saw Crowe and made an obscene gesture. A couple of girls screamed, "Ohhhh it's the Kangeroo!" and Crowe proceeded to punch each of the girls in the face. AC/DC started playing on the jukebox but some bloody bastard accidentally tripped over the cord and it was chaos after that. The Kangeroo said, "I will drink heaps more than you, mate" and Russell Crowe was all, "No, I will be the one who drinks more. I am a Gladiator!" And the Australian Prime Minister came in but he was bloody shiatfaced and Russell punched the girls in the face again, just for the hell of it. A couple of local pauperazzi came in the door snapping pictures and the kangeroo and Crowe beat them bloody. Or so my sources say.

Dead right, Lalalala. Thats a ordinary friday night here in Oz. What, you nancy yankee poofs dont like it? Well she's sweet, mate. We don't care as long as there is beer'n'brawl for everyone!

Breaking news!: Crowe loses Oscar to Denzel Washington, and rightly so.
That is all.
2002-03-25 07:32:04 AM  
How is this cool?
2002-03-25 08:59:14 PM  
The latest allegations - filmed two years ago - form part of a blackmail court case.
Hmmm...two years ago 'form' part of a blackmail case, then I guess that would not have been from last nights Oscars, now wouldn't it. Stupid article, written by an even more stupid writer, this has nothing to do with anything.
