This Australia Day I would like to give thanks for a worldwide return to sanity, as demonstrated by President Trump, Brexit, Senators Hanson and Leyonhjelm, One Nation outpolling the Greens, and the the demodding of EM.

Not a good time to be a rabid leftist lol.


I'm struggling to find the 2015 thread too, it seems to have vanished.

I know Fighter OTY was Conor McGregor and Best Major Show was UFC 189
