Strong suggestions that these 'removalists' were moving a lot more than furniture across state lines. 

Regardless they broke multiple rules clearly stated on their Freight Permit, including prolonged interaction with clients and not wearing masks.

So yes 10/10 would throw them and their bosses in jail. 

At the very least A Current Affair should be chasing them through a car park like they do to dodgy builders and people that have swindled the fortunes from some granny in an online pyramid scheme.

Hahaha and then Today Tonight will have a pixilated interview with a 'whistle blower' from inside the company... "they bullied me and called me mask face if I tried to wear one".

Posted this in another thread but probably more relevant here, re why Ess game moved to Qld: 

AFL spreading the risk across states rather than having 12 teams 'stuck' in Victoria and theu looking forward to who plays who in rounds 19 and 20.

In rounds 19 and 20 Ess play GWS and Syd who have also flown to Qld.  Then GWS and Syd play SA or WA teams and they are banking on it being easier those games played and teams back to SA and WA respectively. 

Apparently, Bulldogs preparing for a stint out of Vic.  They play Adelaide in round 19 so likely to be in SE Qld.

I can see mini hubs forming in SE Qld for most of the teams that flew up today. 

I wouldn't be surprised if the AFL swap some games around in the latter rounds to enable the season to be finished.

Who knew removalists could cause such carnage. Thanks to these selfish Muppets our state has been turned on its head. We were doing so well before they came.

Also to that family that came back from Sydney & decided to go to coles & spread it to you are just as bad.

This delta variant is next level contagious. I'm not sure even lock downs will be able to contain it.

And there will always be someone who doesn't follow the rules. Expecting otherwise is deluded

The Feds need to pull out all the stops to increase supply of vaccines otherwise they'll be out on their arses after the next election. We are in serious danger of squandering all our good work up to this point

I woke up this morning to a lengthy text from NSW health stating that I had recently worked at site with at least 3 confirmed cases. My family all got Covid tests this morning, if they get a negative they are free to go back to normal but I must remain in isolation for 14 days regardless. Again the consistency….

This on the back of my comment yesterday about the Western Bulldogs.

Thanks, the NSW website there was an active case there on July 1st but person only tested positive yesterday. I was there on the 12th, when I spoke to contact tracers earlier they said they are now 3 confirmed cases from that site. I was contracting there, working alone outside but did briefly go into their office and use bathroom facilities.

Well no need to be angry about a game in Darwin now. Seems we will be back to sunny QLD for that game. 
We better not miss the Dogs game at the G tho.

Dammit!

I was looking forward to attending the game at the MCG between the Demons and the Hawks on Saturday afternoon! I had my ticket organised and everything!

Was keen to see Big Benny Brown kick a few goals!

Hopefully the game still goes ahead, and I can, at the very least, watch it on TV.

My Mrs is not happy at all about this lockdown, she has tickets to see Magic Mike on sunday and now will be stuck with the not-so-Magic DubDee.

I might start by seductively peeling my socks off one at a time

Out on their arses is exactly where those lying tu.ds. belong.

But the family is not being penalised, because Commandant Weimar says they are, now, doing the right thing.

3 to 5 day lockdown is the tip, from midnight tonight.

Like the last 3-5 day lockdown that went on for 2 or 3 weeks?

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
