  1. Angry Hinkley hopes AFL will relax list concession rules after CAS verdict So minutes after the verdict was handed down, the AFL announce concession rules for Essendon, but a week later they were yet to advise clubs on the parameters for the banned players. If that's not an example of money taking priority over anything and everything, even player welfare, then I don't know what is. Integrity in the AFL has been a joke for some time, but it is clear that integrity and AFL are now mutually exclusive.
  2. I've asked Santa for more wins this year, so I won't know if I've been naughty or nice for quite some time. Here's hoping. Merry Christmas.
  3. RIP Scott Weiland. Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts - MODZILLA
  4. "It's singing ironic, with no ironies!" James Corden was also pretty good in the sketch show Horne & Corden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELqirocnv1Y
  5. http://mobile.news.com.au/sport/afl/jake-carlisle-row-eddie-mcguire-blasts-aflpa-for-nondisclosure-to-st-kilda/story-fnelctok-1227587756763 Im on my mobile, so i can't be bothered with quoting. But at the bottom of the article is a gill statement. The player manager only had a grainy photo at the time and jake was denying it was him. So, if thats fact, i would point the finger squarely at Carlisle.
  6. They've just come for the free refreshments and to point and laugh at the Toigs contingent
  7. I've listened to and read a few of their interviews of late. I think that EP that they released was just a bit of a taste as Chester had commitments with LP (I believe they finished the last of the songs just a few hours before Chester had to fly out for a tour). There was also the messy breakup with Weiland at the time, which was still going through the courts, as such that EP had to be labeled STP "with Chester Bennington". They've been working on some new material and all seem pretty pumped about it, new album due out in the next few months (apparently). I don't mind the EP, but I'll hold judgment on them until I hear the new album (What am I saying, they'll be awesome). Chester's vocal range is dissimilar to Weiland's and he struggles to really nail the great STP tunes live, but maybe he's the change that the band needs. They all seems to be enjoying each other, the band, and playing music again, so that can't be a bad thing. STP & the DeLeo brothers have tried to go without Weiland on a few occasions, without much success. I don't mind either album, but I'm biased. Talk Show (STP with Dave Coutts(Ten Inch Men)) Army of Anyone (DeLeo Brothers with Richard Patrick (Filter)) Bit strange that the two popular songs are Hello and Goodbye.
  8. Not sure if this has been posted already. It's a pretty catchy tune from OK Go, and the film clip is certainly an attention grabber with their supposed one take Rube Goldberg Machine.
  9. I might go. May be the only opportunity to see melbourne play in september for quite some time.
  10. New phone and new music player, so I've been listening to all my music as I load it in. I've found myself listening to some albums I haven't heard for years, mostly Scott Weiland stuff. The second album from Velvet Revolver is a cracker.
  11. Well done Froome. He's been pretty dominant from the start. The Alpe D'Huez was a pretty amazing stage. Quintana attacking and taking some time off Froome. I think he probably stayed behind his Movistar teammate for too long when he should have been attacking harder and going it alone. But maybe he had started to run out of beans. Also missed an opportunity on Col de la Croix de Fer when Valverde couldn't go with him. If those 2 had got away it would have been a spectacular final climb.
  12. Quitana into 2nd. Attacked a few times on what was a pretty minor final mountain section. He couldn't shake Froome, but like you said all his rivals are so far back he's going to have to cover a barrage of attacks in the coming mountain stages. Still, I think it's down to a 2 man race, with Quintana having to come from a long way back.
  13. My favourite Tom Waits song is The Piano Has Been Drinking. Funny, entertaining and just a little bit tragic. The great man is an enigma. I caught some more good songs on rage the other night. There's some great music out at the moment, I probably should watch it more often. The Foals song does have a film clip, but it's explicit, so I'll just link it.
  14. The race almost seems over already. I guess you've got to admire Froome for being so dominant, but it doesn't do much for the spectacle of the race. I'm hoping Quintana can give him a run for his money over some of the upcoming mainatin stages (16-18 maybe). Nibali has bounced back somewhat after a disappointing start to the tour, but he's too far back to be any threat. The big news for me so far this tour has been Porte's announcement that he will be leaving Sky at the end of the year to be a team leader. Not sure which team he's heading off to, but that will certainly make the next few years tours more interesting (hopefully) The mail stops for no-one (or race)

    I'm a bit disappointed too. Not so much because of the result, but due to Bogut not really having an impact in the Finals. Still, the future is looking bright for Aussie's in the NBA.
