Lol at Laidley. Pretty sure I remember this thread voting him the coach most likely to have bodies buried underneath his basement in years past.

Then this is my bad. Due to me being an idiot.

I didn't know about Laidley's previous form in domestic violence, and agree that breaching an AVO is a bad thing.

I jumped to the wrong conclusion, due to all the reporting, (fueled by the illegaly leaked photos), being all breathless about how he was dressed in drag in St. Kilda, (nudge nudge wink wink).

Sorry.

Regardless of the criminal outcome for the officer in question, VicPol are probably about to owe Dean a very very large sum of money.

SA and WA are currently among the safest places on the planet from COVID19, both are dyed in the wool AFL heartlands, and both are being actively hampered from contributing to the AFL restarting by AFL house.

Additionally, the Grand Final is locked into the MCG for the next 50 years so 🤔

Donít bother. People from WA and SA donít actually want the grand final / ďvic biasĒ to change, because then they wouldnít be able to have a sook about it the next time they see their mates from Melbourne. They secretly love it. I mean Iíve got a mate from Adelaide who honestly believes that the crows would have won in 2017 if it wasnít at the MCG. Itíll never end.

Im mostly stirring but the political point is real. There are many conservative politicians who actually donít go ahead and ban the things they say they will, for a variety of reasons but this is definitely one of them.

The NRA is a good example, I donít think the behind the scenes lobbying is for full and irrevocable gun rights because theyíd lose the reason for their existence and a bunch of rich white dudes would suddenly become a lot less rich.

Hmmm well the example I was thinking of is how 'actually people who say they want to change the date of Australia Day don't really care about that and just want something to complain about'.

Which is about the same mentality you're displaying here.

Itís really not the same. There is no big vote win or donation/ money win in the fight to change the date (which I support) and no one is ďhaving a whingeĒ on that.

Meanwhile as someone else mentioned the NRA / gun lobbyists, rural parties/ pollies, and parties/ pollies who bring up religious arguments stand to gain many votes and lots of donations by saying they will end this horrible anti religious thing / support the bush / stop all gun bans... whereas if they actually did what they said properly they know they would lose the support of the people they do have because all they have is an opinion of ďantiĒ whatever they are against.


Anyway itís really not that complicated, I think itís completely fair to say itís a conservative phenomenon due to the nature of wanting things to be ďback in the good old daysĒ whereas progressives want things to be better, and if you canít understand it this isnít the thread to educate you on it.

Change the date and make footy more progressive, play it where and when it is safe to do so and keep the grand final in fortress Victoria where it belongs, go the loving tiges!!!
