    Would you please explain the intended meaning of the phrase “eyeing off” in the headline? I cannot find any similar examples using google. Just about the only examples that I can find of “eye” and “off” in close proximity to each other are in the idiom “take [one’s] eye off [something]” which means to lose focus on one’s goal and that doesn’t seem appropriate here.

    • To focus on something you want. To ‘eye’ something is the same. Is adding ‘off’ an Aussie only thing?

        Thank you. So it appears. The first 20 examples for “eyeing off” with which a country can be identified are from Oz. For example “Mazda Engineer eyeing off return to Le Mans . . . .” (Headline) in The Motor Report TMR has a +61 telephone contact and the email is .au. It’s the first time I’ve seen it and it struck me as a rather odd expression.
