  1. Bid video - apologies if posted before. To me a very compelling story about Australia and New Zealand being 'world' countries, ie. we are from all over the world via immigration.
  2. Love them or hate them but Amazon and Microsoft will already have sufficient local staff with the correct government security clearances to manage this data.
  3. I had it there last night as an option … looked at my wife and thought she wouldn't enjoy. But based on your review, I will give it a go. Thanks.
  4. Watching Waratahs vs Lions on Foxtel to see how many people turned up. Had to take my shoes off to get the exact number. Can't find any official number. SMH said a small crowd. Maybe using the same algorithm for Giants crowd numbers at Spotless. Checked Waratahs fixtures and thankfully no games in the next 6 weeks to stuff up the pitch. NRL doesn't worry me as match as no real scrums.
  5. I liked the ref, Alireza Faghani. He lets the game run after 50/50 balls, when other refs would penalise a Wanderers player after a Sydney player starts rolling on the ground. He doesn't get conned by the players or crowd.
  6. I have my 4 year grand daughter staying and she loves Wendy's Song from Bob the Builder.
  7. Any experts out there who can convert the 4pm shade line in Mack's first photo of the Eastern Stand into say 1 Oct, 1 Nov, 1 Dec, 1 Jan, etc for a 5pm or 7.50pm kickoff? I am in Row 21 in Tier 2 and wondering where the hot westerly sun will be shining. I remember too well cooking in the Parra Eastern Stand back in Feb 1991 when Czechoslovakia beat Australia 2-0.
  8. Great photos. So what was the ratio of Wanderers jerseys to Eels jerseys? I reckon 2:1 in the 2-3pm time slot? I saw a lone Roosters' jersey and thought he must have been lost. Good line at the WSW tent and our staff looked professional. Same can't be said for the Eels. And then NSW Rugby, Tigers, and Canterbury just filled the space with no one talking to them. A good interview with a Leeds fan about the upcoming game. It should be a fantastic night and just imagine Aaron Mooy turning up for Leeds if they win promotion to the Premier League.
  9. One sport I would like "priced-out" is Rugby Union due to the damage caused to the playing surface from scrums, rucks, mauls, etc. The National Rugby Championship is still running with their final on 27 OCT 18. With the recent wet weather you can just imagine what a scrum reset five times would do to the surface. They should just stay at Concord Oval.
  10. Here's a simple solution … there is a big push to bring back the North Sydney Bears. Recently saw them on a Foxtel Flashback and they played ok. Even a very young Jason Taylor. Rebrand the Parramatta Eels as the North Parramatta Bears and then we have both teams in Red and Black. They could also play Frank Hyde commentary reruns during the breaks … "It's long enough, it's high enough and it's straight between the posts".
  11. My mate and I have a guess at the crowd based on the number of cars parked around Richie Benaud oval as we walk in. Last night we thought a big one from the number of cars and people in the streets. But as someone once said, we have Lies, damned lies, and statistics. And that gets used for the crowds at Pirtek. How often have we had a crowd of only 12K when I would have said 15K? So last night for our final game, we broke 20K and that was great. Here are the Pirtek record crowds - too early for last night - http://www.austadiums.com/stadiums/stadiums_crowds.php?id=85 The AFL and NRL are masters at crowd counting and maybe the FFA need to learn something from them. From all the noise last night, I thought there were 35K there, and can't wait until we come back to a larger and rectangular stadium. My other story from last night was when the Roar flare was lit, someone new to our area, high in the Western stand, starting yelling, where is David Gallop, Roar need to lose points? He had had a few to drink and kept going strongly, so I turned around and showed him where DG was sitting only 4m away. And then he just went to another level ... thankfully for all of us, we scored and he forgot about DG
  12. Hes made the point that I made couple of weeks ago. Kick both the Reds and the Broncos out of Suncorp and give exclusive rights to the roar Kick both the tahs and easts out of the SFS and give exclusive rights to the stadium to the smurfs Do Sydney fc train at macquarie fields or is Simon getting his macquaries mixed up... ? They train at Macquarie University at North Ryde aka Macquarie Park.
  13. My son and I were at the NPL2 game last night and he knows a bit. He said after 5 mins ... Spirit will collapse from lack of match practice in the second half and Wanderers will have an easy win. Well blow me down ... 0-0 at half time and it ended up 6-0 nil and should have been 7 given the open goal tap-in that ended up on the road. The kid can finish well but remember Spirit ran out of gas. Their defence was gooooooooooooone. But I did see some crisp and incisive passing, especially to the number 9. Liam Youlley played well but he had a lot of room.
  14. Went to the MVC game at Etihad, sat near the North Terrace but on Level 2, and was a very long way away from the action. And Etihad has very small screens, so I was struggling when the ball was at the far end. Does anyone know how Etihad and Spotless compare in the size of the oval dimensions, ie. without the Etihad moveable seating - both side and end? And if we go to ANZ, will they force everyone to sit on the eastern side to improve the TV experience by showing a crowd? The people of the eastern side of Etihad on Levels 2 and 3 were being baked until the second half. The Eastern moveable seating at ground level was nearly full and not in sunlight, so assume for MVC members only. If we go to Spotless, I doubt we would see moveable seating. One thing I did find interesting was watching a game from an end-to-end perspective as opposed to my normal side-to-side at Parra. Still showed me we can't cross very well and waste most corners.
  15. Right so it was dissent for moving the cream? Or dissent at Williams for putting more cream down?If Williams used a bit of common sense it wouldn't have blown up (ie he wasn't moving the ball just the excess foam) Jamo throws his arms out wide, clearly saying "For ****'s sake!â€. That's what the card is for, I'd say. I agree re the dissent ... I was about 30m directly in front of what happened and Jamison clearly spoke back to him. But would a more mature ref just let it go as he had contributed to the situation? I think yes ... have a talk ... defuse the situation ... and get him to take the kick.
