  1. Yeh nah. Both Roy Morgan and Newspoll tracking at about 70 per cent support for Andrews' handling of the second wave, and even a majority of Coalition voters think he's done a good job. In other news, you know what they're calling it in China now - the White House Virus. lol.
  2. Updated for 2020 with new crying victim Charlie Dixon. I'll be shedding a tear too if Jack leaves and we have to close this thread.
  3. It's hard to think of a more polarising player in the modern era, and I'll never forget the 2017 B & F when large sections of the room booed when Jack's departure was mentioned. My favourite version of the different calls of QB 2017 is from 3AW - Tim Lane nails the drama of the occasion, and I love how you can see and hear the crowd rise in expectation as the ball travels down the southern wing.
  4. No no no The word when he left Port was that he was already over footy then, and he hasn't regained that desire since crossing to Hawthorn - just happy to earn a pay cheque. This is Crawf shopping around damaged goods. His last good year was 2016.
  5. I've always been bemused by the theory that a club's cultural weaknesses can somehow be passed down the generations, as though it sticks to the walls in the change-rooms and infects each new batch of recruits. However, I think the only exception to that was the Colliwobbles. That was a genuine thing, where each new Magpie Grand Final team felt the cumulative pressure of the failures of their predecessors. It was a monumental mental hurdle that Matthews and the 1990 team overcame to get that monkey off their back. The media sometimes try to pretend that there are 'cultural forces' at
  6. I've read many poems about Trent throughout the course of his career, but this is definitely the best of them.
  7. That was damn near perfect. Dominated early and got the score on the board before the rain came, and answered quickly every time they goaled. In a season of sometimes turgid footy, that was as watchable as it gets.
  8. No need for the hostility. The answer to your question has been all over the news the past week, culminating in these latest revelations yesterday. Coronavirus fail: no help for the aged from federal authorities 'No plan': Royal commission hears federal agencies failed aged care Federal Government had no Covid19 aged care plan, royal commission hears There was always going to be mistakes made along the way, and all governments deserve a little bit of latitude in the circumstances. But there are elements of the hotel quarantine fiasco, the Ruby Princess scand
  9. It's got nothing to do with being a mod. You're not going to get banned for posting like a primary school kid. I just don't like seeing MFC champions disrespected (Jones) and other players repeatedly abused ad nauseam (Spargo).
  10. Enough already. We get it, you don't rate him. No need to repeat it 10 times over. The way you talk about our players ('Jones a has-been') is pathetic. Criticism and discussion of a player's shortcomings is fine, but repeated three-word posts that say 'X is a spud' contributes absolutely nothing to the discussion.
  11. Unfortunately it's still up there dazzle - it's in the replies section. Absolutely pathetic, and anyone who's on Twitter should make their feelings known.
  12. Yeh nah. Your Jesse Hogan posts were deleted because they were unsubstantiated rubbish ('he was at a party in my apartment building'), not because you had any 'inside mail' that needed censoring. You then pretended to be a lawyer when you were called out on your limited understanding of defamation and the legal risk to which you exposed the site's owners, one of whom is an actual lawyer.
  13. This is the front page of today's West Australian, the perfect example of how Aboriginal people are often treated differently than the rest of us in the criminal justice system. Try and imagine your 86-year-old dementia-suffering grandmother going to jail for spraying a neighbour with a garden hose. You can't. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "An Aboriginal grandmother with dementia spent nearly a week in a maximum-security pr
  14. Given that most people won't read the report you've linked, it's a shame you didn't explicitly express the point I'm guessing you wanted to make - that the majority of Indigenous deaths in custody are from natural causes, suicide etc, rather than guards / cops killing them, and that the rate of Indigenous deaths in custody is actually lower than it is for the rest of us. It's important, and people should understand what's behind the 430+ number that is often quoted. But that doesn't take away from the injustice of some of those deaths. Reports with stats don't tell the stories of
