  1. I really cannot understand comments such as this. Being an AFL footballer is a career, just like any other career that any one of us might have (or have had), and so, AFL footballers, look to improve themselves and secure their futures, just like any of us do. I had a career as a Technical Writer and when my manager left to go to a bigger and better company, he contacted me and asked if I'd like to move and join him at that company on better wages, with better conditions, and with more talented developers; I jumped at it, as I'm sure most would, and it certainly did not diminish my cari
  2. Or perhaps they may now give a little more consideration to taking on a delisted free agent? Perhaps Jetta, while previously considered unlikely, might now be looked at a little more closely?
  3. I'm not involving myself in that particular discussion 😁
  4. And given that his leanings were probably part of the reason he failed to win the nomination as the party's candidate, I think it's not too far fetched to believe that the majority of Democrats are not socialists or communists. Six of one and half a dozen of the other.
  5. Nice to see that, as usual, you're across it all P2J. So I guess that must have been a different alt-right that was first launched in 2010 (during Obama's presidency), accredited to Richard B Spencer, the white nationalist. You see, they even gave themselves that label as a badge of honour, and as the years have passed, more and more groups have been encompassed within the movement. As for the nazis around every corner, that's no different than Trump supporters labeling the democrats as pedophiles, communists and socialists. Have a read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alt-right
  6. I'm not sure what you are getting at... how is this supposed to be some sort of sinister plot? The QR code is a way of tracing the source of outbreaks, and this is intended to enable the same sort of tracking, but on a global scale once travel restarts... not so different to a passport that allows for the tracing of an individual's movements across international borders. Do you refuse to use a passport when traveling?
  7. I suppose you could say that it flew under the radar.
  8. If you live in Sydney, you should pop in and check out RPM Records. They do have pretty hefty prices on some of their LPs, but they also have plenty at affordable prices. They're at 113 Marrickville Rd, Marrickville... just over Victoria Rd on the Sydenham side (next door to a great little live music bar called the Gasoline Pony - where my band plays once every month).
  9. Pretty smart I would have thought. Footy being the professional sport it is, is a business these days; childhood loyalties mean nothing. Of course players will want to set themselves up for the best possible future for them and their families and in this dog eat dog world we now live in, who could blame them.
  10. Vinyl never went away and is now fast becoming a very big selling point in this age of digital music sourcing... people want something tactile again. About a year ago I helped at my friends' record shop that deals probably 90% vinyl (the rest being a few CDs, posters, music books and videos), while they went to Canada for a month, and business was quite brisk. As a mark of it's popularity, it has been supported by music industry doyens such as Glen A Baker and Stuart Coupe who have voluntarily attended in store promotions and quite regularly do their record shopping there. Hopefully thi
  11. Trac is considered the Antonov An-124 Ruslan of flighty players.
  12. And yet another example of you displaying that you do not understand how masks work. The Conclusion section states: “The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use.”. It is common knowledge (well, to most) that wearing a mask is not intended to protect the wearer so much as to protect others; therefore, if everyone is wearing a mask, then everyone is protected. It’s NOT rocke
  13. I thought that this being a Rumour Only topic, then there would be no need to question sources, as until proven otherwise, anything posted here is going to essentially be spurious by definition.
  14. It seems you might have gotten a head start on the rest of us 😂🤣😂
