    Vanders raring to go

    I love the Vanders types. They play tough and every opponent knows it. They must constantly wonder where he is. When he tackles you know it will hurt.

    Thanks for the advice Deemania, I am mainly a red wine drinker. Have been to Italy and have enjoyed the majority of the wine I have had there. Going again in May to Puglia and Sicily. Looking forward to a few of the local numbers.

    Tom Mitchell out for the season

    I don't I want us to be hated for the same reasons. Decades long success and numerous premierships.

    New major sponsor?

    Not in Australia however they are riding on the back of Nissan infrastructure so the costs are probably carried mainly by the Nissan network. If you view it as another Nissan vehicle with a different name then they can probably afford to plod along with low growth for some time. It really depends on how long HQ in Japan is prepared to take the long view.

    I am happy to take their money dc. I just don't think it is going to be around for long.

    New major sponsor?

    Spot on but it would appear that in 2018 it had little effect mauriesy. IMO it is a dud brand in Australia that has little chance of emulating Toyota's success with Lexus. Over the years numerous brands have tried to sell up market brands in Australia with little success. Mazda tried at the same time as Toyota launched Lexus with their Eunos. That was a fail and no one else has succeeded in Australia. Hyundai tried in the last few years with the Genesis. They sold a few but are trying a new tactic of total different sales avenues to the traditional dealership. They will have one dealer in Sydney which will be a store front in the city. Established Japanese and Korean brands selling an up market brand is very hard work when everyone knows it is really a Hyundai or Nissan. Would you rather have a Merc or a Infiniti sitting in the drive ( there is not a lot of difference in price ). One has cachet and the other hardly anyone knows what it is and those that do know it is a Nissan. Now as you suggest using the MFC to get publicity for the brand is a start but IMO it is hard to see that being enough.

    Or for more than 554 it would seem ET.

    Agree with 99% of what you have said on this subject over the last couple of days Wise. However the buck stops at the top. Let's hope they only promise to delivery to people before Christmas in 2019 who request it. Under promise and over deliver in 2019.

    Is it red Tony? They have had a habit over the years of giving us Maroon and a couple that looked pink in certain light conditions and even an orange.

    Quick answer is No Rob Mac. I guess it is a matter of personal taste between US buyers and Australian buyers. Nissan had only sold 554 vechicles of all models of Infiniti to the end of Oct 2018. For what ever reason Aussies don't like Nissan cars. Their Suv's and trucks sell well. Nissan withdrew the Altima from sale in Australia because the sales were very poor. This is a model that is a big seller in the USA. Aussie reviews give them average reports and they are not cheap. Aussies seem to like Bmw's and Merc's. Which gives the best look in your drive clearly it ain't an Infiniti.

    Correct. It was every bit as bad as Gaff but without the obvious outward signs of blood etc.

    I think your memory is failing on this one. He was front on and it was no back hander. Punched him smack on the chin. The only difference was he did not break teeth or jaw.

    They have been off since Friday 21st till Monday 7th which might account for no reply. If you have been a member for the last 35 years then I am sure you have endured far worse than a delayed delivery. A good year is ahead stay calm.

    He was dead in the water the moment the punch connected! Only an existing contract saved him for 2018.
