    Sporting Trivia Needed Hey all,

    i am in the process of undertaking a massive project along with a few other posters and we are in desperate need of sporting question writers which will be used in a future project that is being currently organised.

    If you have any knoweledge of any 1 or more particular sports then i'd love to get you onboard and for you to also become part of this.

    Even if you can guide me towards sites that have 1000's of easy trivial quick questions and answers (appart from this one)i would be appreciated.

    But many fingers tapping away will make this start sooner rather than later, our aim is to start with 4 thousand Aussie sporting questions, to match it with the 4600 i currently have from overseas sports.8600 is only the start, i wish for hundred's of thousands eventually.

    Once this goal is achieved then all will be revealed.

    If you can assist with even 50 questions attached in here it all helps.(not league or AFL, thats easily covered)

    Please keep 1 answer per line, so i can edit it easy and we are only after General moderatley easy questions, not ones like What was the score between Aust vs NZ in the 1984 test match in cricket.


    (simple easy to learn initial pointer about the game, rules,teams,famous names etc..)

    1 Line per question would make it easier for me to edit it, and can you attach it here via a notepad or simular script.


    Thanks.

    I am after every single question that anyone is wiling to give me..

    10 to 100 from you brings my dream/vision closer..

    I'm appreciative of every single General Sports question that is given, i've got a guy in another forum giving me Lawn Bowls questions. It's a sport that needs to be covered even though we may not like it, but we can learn from the 10 questions he is giving me.
