I realise I’m probably just overreacting but me working In travel so worrying each day whether I’ll even have a job and my wife being a paramedic and out there every day she’s working it just makes me so frustrated to see these celebrities complaining about boredom or people just lolling it up over quarantine etc.

Like Sam doesn’t give a gently caress about anyone else (obviously), about how people are not able to pay rent, about people getting stood down, about people dying, gently caress him

Eddie is a funny one in that he’s been a racist and an idiot and out of touch, but he’s also a kid who grew up in broady and maybe 50% of the time he remembers that. There’s a reason that maybe 10-15 years back when there was rumours he’d get into politics he was rumoured to come in with labor not liberals.

It was from his breakfast show with Luke Darcy. It comes from the catholic upbringing and having been part of the whole schooling system is pretty aware of the abuse that happened in those places so I think its a pretty personal thing.

Also his brother is a labor state senator so he is a pretty labor leading.


Basically Maguire is a pretty stock standard Australian. A bit racist and sexist but has the ability to not be a total prick all the time.

Turns out he somehow dragged Bailey Smith and Billy Gowers into it, they were at an ex-players house drinking then left to go to Gowers house and crashed into 4 cars.

There were puppies in one of the cars. They're all dead, puppies belonged to Will Minson who may or may not have been with them.


One of the cars he crashed into was Bailey Smiths girlfriends parents car? And then Bailey Smith drove him to Gowers house where Lachie kept drinking

Yeah, I haven't heard anything about it. Sounds like Hunter got on the piss and smashed his car and called Bailey to pick him up and drop him off at Gowers'.

I have zero doubt that Hunter will be stood down as vice captain, will cop the maximum fine and will cop a ban. If I were the club then I'd just ban him for the rest of the season because this poo poo was ridiculous and he dragged a 19yo kid into this poo poo.

Either way, the Crows are joining in on the fun, although they waited until after 5pm on a Friday for the press release.

quote:

Young Crows forward Tyson Stengle has been reported for a drink driving offence after being stopped by police in Adelaide’s south-western suburbs.

Stengle was initially asked to pull over for driving an unregistered vehicle and subsequently recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.125.

Crows Head of Football Adam Kelly said these were serious breaches of the Club’s standards, as well as those of the broader community.

Top work from a guy who has played 3 games in 4 seasons, and may be out of contract end of year (but is probably contracted til end of next)

We dumped a whole bunch of players last year, and still have a whole bunch more that need to be moved on this year as well.

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

"THE Carlton Football Club can confirm forward Charlie Curnow has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury after scans revealed a hairline stress response in the bone.

The 22-year-old had been completing his rehabilitation program yesterday, when he felt some discomfort to his knee. As a precaution, the Club arranged for Curnow to undergo scans, which this afternoon confirmed the hairline stress response would delay Curnow’s full recovery by four to six weeks."

Decided to rewatch Mr. Inbetween this weekend, then clip this scene where they go to the footy.

The footy is on in the background of one or two scenes in season 1 as well, not bad for a show set in sydney, could have easily been rugby.

Melbourne has emerged as the favourite to host all 18 clubs for the restart of the AFL season following a drop in Victoria’s coronavirus cases.

AFL officials were initially looking at restarting across multiple cities, including Perth and Adelaide, but the changing health situation has made Melbourne the frontrunner due to its facilities.

I for one am surprised to learn Melbourne is the VFL's frontrunner to host all football.

How feasible would it be to have the Victorian teams basically each host one of the interstate teams for practice facilities? Hosting games and which stadiums host is one thing, but limiting the number of places the players go and limiting the need for non-AFL facilities would be important too.
