    I don't have any illusions there. But I guess I thought they are humans first. A memory ingrained in my mind is my Dad telling me of an occasion, post war before I was born, where he was talking with a catholic priest. Then the priest asked Dad "Are you of the faith?" "No." So the priest immediately turned his back on Dad. Sounds like they got worse instead of better.

    15. August 2029: Bulut teases possible football return The 37 year old former Western Sydney Wanderers striker Kerem Bulut has hinted on social media his football bans for drug use and all sorts of other illegal activities may come to an end. Once cleared, Bulut is hopeful to resume his career at the Wanderers after a 12 year hiatus from the club. He feels that he has yet to show WSW and the public what he is capable of, and is determined to return to the Socceroos and score the winning goal in the next WC final.

    Jokes

    A man comes home from an exhausting day at work, sits down on the couch in front of the television, and tells his wife, 'Get me a beer before it starts.' The wife sighs and gets him a beer. Fifteen minutes later, he says, 'Get me another beer before it starts.' She looks cross, but fetches another beer and slams it down next to him. He finishes that beer and a few minutes later says, 'Quick, get me another beer, it's going to start any minute.' The wife is furious. She yells at him 'Is that all you're going to do tonight? Drink beer and sit in front of that TV? You're nothing but a lazy, drunken, fat slob, and furthermore ...' The man sighs and says, 'It's started ...'

    A man brings his buddy home for dinner unannounced at 6:30 after work. His wife screams at him, as the friend listens, "My hair and make-up are not done, the house is a mess, the dishes are not done, I'm still in my pyjamas and I can't be bothered with cooking tonight! What the hell did you bring him home for?" "Because he's thinking of getting married .........."

    The power of positive thinking...... My dad is 89 and he has a photo ID from Services NSW which he had to renew. So I took him to the Westfield Mt Druitt centre and the lady behind the counter said to him I'm making this out for ten years and I expect to see you back here to renew....have a good day.

    This might not lead on well from the previous post...but I'll post it while I think of it. Don't really now much about RHCP...but of course this and the other songs from Californication got heaps of airplay...so I heard it hundreds of times....without ever making sense of their lyrics. Always enigmatic to me. But, I don't remember ever seeing this before...and it's fantastic. From Elvis to the Beatles...Hendrix.. Bowie's in there....Motley Crue...you'll recognise many, many others. So clever. So high energy.

    The Jets budget was cut by Martin Lee due to trump tariffs. This would affect designated players only unless McKinna has been instructed to use the salary cap floor.

    Wikipedia says Keegan is an Anglicisation of the Irish clan name Mac Aodhagáin. The name means "son (or descendant) of Aodhagán". And they were located in Connacht.

    2019/2020 Season draw and fixtures.

    I'd go for 18 by 2026. Canberra, Wollongong, Team 11 and Tasmania, and then open up bids for second teams in Brisbane and Adelaide. Second Division would include all the ex-NSL clubs and can open the door to additional new teams in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. Assuming the 2nd tier starts in the next 2 years, and it doesn't implode with the FFA running it, I would pencil in P/R for the 28/29 or 29/30 seasons.

    Funny you should mention that. I noticed exactly the same thing and pointed it out to WB Jnr. We watched him and as you say, every ball was absolutely pinpoint. I was mightily impressed and knew there and then that we had bought a class act.

    The fringes of the north terrace used to be empty at the old stadium too because people crammed in towards the middle. The only time it looked genuinely full was games where one off tickets needed to be purchased (finals, ACL final etc.) or when they used to open the gate and let people enter the terrace from elsewhere in the stadium in the very early days. The restrictions placed on active support terraces disabled access to the area for non-active members which was the source of that top up to properly fill the bays. There was also the issue of people not turning up to games outside of derbies just so they could secure a seat. The DA changing wouldn’t fix the problem, it’s a matter of altering spectating behaviours and loosening restrictions on active ends.

    I believe that they are selling it 1:1, which would be silly but this is determined by the green guides which determine these things (ie the stadium stands were built to the maximum steepness as allowed in the green guides). They will not be allowed to sell extra tickets in the safe standing area because it looks empty.
  44. 1 point
    My question wasn't one of concern - it was, have they actually accounted for it in the design. I vaguely remember a discussion about it a while back. .. can't remember if it was definitely taken into account.... easy to say they should have.... but it wasn't even clear there would even be any safe standing until relatively recently. The memory i do have though is of someone saying the egress standards are like way over capacity. So hopefully!

    Yeah, but I can empathize with such human failings. I am sure I am not the only one to look back on their lives and remember the hopes and dreams of their youth and then wonder how they ended up where they are today.

    Well, there goes my plans to roller blade into the stadium with my pet dog under my arm, a six pack under the other, a backpack full of confetti, a laser light for the Leeds goalie and to film the match via my drone. ******* party poopers.

    He was told he was unwanted (same source as the Baccus story). He didn't have anywhere to go. He went and sat with everyone in the office, chatted with them and thanked them. Apparently he was completely shattered by being let go.
