    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    So have mentioned on here before about the wife cutting salt down as i need to. She bought some unsalted peanuts and this afternoon i grabbed a big mit full and poured salt on them. Didnt expect the wife to come back so quick. Didnt make a big deal of it...just eating peanuts as usual but she ******* grabbed a few.....busted 'Whats the point is buying unsalted if you are gonna pour a **** load of salt on blah blah ******* blah'..........

    I’m still unsure what I think about the club standing people down. I’m definitely more sympathetic towards the back room and admin staff than the players. There’s hundreds of thousands of people across the country who’ve been stood down so I don’t know why professional sporting clubs seem to be some sort of exception or require a greater deal of empathy. Lederer’s spending habits are independent of this issue though imo. Whether you like/agree with it or not, most billionaires don’t generate their wealth without being savvy with their money. They don’t add zeros to their wealth by spending money without reason. Telling someone they should be spending money just because they’re rich has never been a concept I have understood or found appropriate. Sydney, Victory and City have all told their players that they will be paid til some point this month at which that will stop too unless a resolution is reached with Fox Sports. There was a FTBL article about it yesterday. So to say this is a typical Paul Lederer issue is somewhat unfair imo.

    Not totally sure what I think. I know someone who works for the club and been stood down at the moment but also recognise it is a business that needs to survive. I assume that WSW is a business with a complete budget etc. I don't know how or where Lederer etc contribute to the bottom line (and I disagree they are there as an investment - no-one invests in an A League club to make money! That has been stated elsewhere). I assume that the club is an entity in and of itself and must be able to function like any other business. I'm not sure where you would draw the line in a club as to who stays on wages and who doesn't - not sure how many people across the coaching staff, academy, back of house, medical... staff WSW employs. Certainly isn't just 23 players and a couple of coaches, some of whom are amongst the top end of earners in the club. There are very significant financial questions the whole A League and sport in general have to answer through this and clubs have to be solid businesses - with various forms of income that includes private sponsorship from individuals (eg owners), business... Weird times that will change lots of things, including sport.

    Binged thru the Sunderland till i die on Netflix yesterday, not my team but found it absorbing viewing as a football fan, such a kick in the belly that season for them, seems it all went tits up when they lost their striker in January for them. The thing that stood out for me was dealing with the players agents, bunch of shylocks the lot of them.

    I wouldn’t mind betting too that James Johnson is finally someone who has the balls to stick it to Fox and point out the fact that they themselves are far from healthy and prosperous atm either. For the last 4-5 years Fox have just gaslighted the HAL/FFA into thinking that we are the problem when that is not true at all. Good to hear that we’re finally calling their bluff and long may it continue.

    I would like to see our search criteria expand so we can test the community transmissions figures since it is skewed toward international travellers. Its only until we have a true grasp of those numbers before we can consider relaxing the restrictions. I think we’re in this for up to 6 months though...

    They bought the club as a longer term investment, not a personal vanity project. That said, I have significant issues with wealthy owners passing the buck (quite literally) when it comes to supporting and protecting their staff during the pandemic. The owners bought a football club, which in few countries gives the owner/s a licence to print money. The owners are clearly playing the long game here, but that game requires a lot of goodwill from fans (current and future) in order for the investment to be a success. People are going to remember how the Wanderers treated its players and supporting staff during the pandemic and economic crisis, and the odds of some people* giving more money to the club down the line when the owners themselves couldn’t be bothered to do so now is a real risk. *I suspect many will forget in time, but I certainly won’t.

    Sorry to hear mate. (or not.... ) I'd like to agree it's a nice thought but I still think it's an idiotic thought Wendy yes i will defer to sort it out, I'm sure there'll be a solution that doesn't piss anyone off too much. Why couldn't they have just got me a pen that writes upside down??

    But but....it's no different to flu!! He said he'd had a fever for days in the last statement from him I saw - which in itself is a dangerous state of affairs. Extraordinary to have the future monarch and the PM of a nations afflicted. It surely should send a message - that it's serious....even though there are still those protesting that "It's a conspiracy - with the world is being brought to its knees by nothing more than the flu."

    We are living in strange times when statements like these are a good thing (or better than the alternative). You’ve got to think, the numbers we have seen today are a result of measures & actions taken two weeks ago. Time (another two weeks we) will find out whether things are working via the rate of new cases daily. All it does show is that people can’t comprehend the magnitude of events if police need to take these actions If someone needs reminding, show them this: The exponential growth of coronavirus can be explained by rice on a chessboard. And we should be worried - https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2020-04-05/coronavirus-exponential-growth-explained-by-rice-on-a-chessboard/12122214

    Every death has a life story and a family left behind. Comparing numbers is neither here nor there in that way.... A comment on the smh last week summed Sydney up for me...'if we finish top of the league and be the best we will be seen as a safe haven and make lots of money out of this'. That is Sydney right there....

    Bill Clinton when he won the presidency choose this song as one of the songs played his national acceptance party... before that this song was not overly well know post the party it became a massive hit and is credited with reuniting many runaways with their families... very very very very under rated song... The lyrics are amazing, and if played slower with a blues background, this would have become a monster record...Tis a pity IMO it is played so fast with an upbeat rhythm.. However for lyrics this is an amazing song ... listen to them if you have not before ...

    I would suggest that the owners of ESFC and MCFG are significantly more wealthy than the owners of our club. Those two clubs will survive regardless and can carry small fry losses. We are living through times none of us have ever experienced before (except maybe Ed who has lived through a couple of World Wars ) I'd prefer our owners to be prudent with their spending to ensure our club survives. If that lumps us with the Charlesworth's from the Mariners of this world, so be it. If and when the A-League starts up, I'd like to be there wearing my Season 2 jersey knowing I still have a club I passionately support. Everyone is taking a hit through this Covid-19 shemozzle. Why should normally generously paid professional footballers be any different?
