  1. Good result considering we had a three day turnaround and they had ages to prepare for us. Also good that we were the better team at the end of the game given the difference in rest. I feel like in the last few seasons we concede in the last 10 minutes rather than score the winner. I hadn’t seen much of the Mariners this season so I was impressed that they were keeping clean sheets but now it makes sense. I get that they were garbage last year so Stajic had to sort out the defense but having so many players behind the ball, constant tactical fouling and lumping it to Matt Simon is going t

    Look who’s discovered a distant Indian uncle.
  3. Bitcoin is up roughly 6x in the same period. I considered buying bitcoin in the drop after the big run at the end of 2017 but ended up putting my money elsewhere. Got a decent return on it but nowhere near 6x.
  4. Huge thread listing people who have been arrested, along with some of their social media posts. Highlights include people being thrown off planes after being added to no fly lists, a woman who films herself saying "we didn't vandalise anything, although we did break down Nancy Pelosi's office door", people being turned in by friends and family and all the people who got fired.
  5. I thought Fergo was a Liverpool fan. Mel's definitely a United fan so that would explain getting a few shots in on him.
  6. For those who want everyone to see their whole front line. Feels like they missed a marketing opportunity with Simon Cox.
  7. All while the FBI and intelligence agencies are trying to figure out which soldiers and cops are Trump supporters or Qanon nut jobs who could be a threat.
  8. My first thought when I saw it was that it’d be ruled out for offside. Not necessarily because it was, just standard VAR, ESFC, etc. Didn’t help that we made a change at the same time so it took ages for them to kick off after the goal. I assumed VAR was checking and we just weren’t getting replays because Fox are phoning it in.
  9. The thing that doesn’t add up about argument that Troisi had eye contact with Ninkovic is that it ignores the fact Nickovic had eye contact with Troisi and ran straight at him. Made no effort to go around him and went down holding his chest like he’d been hit by a car, which makes me even more sure he went looking for it. My biggest worry was that the squad wasn’t ready at the start of the season and we’d drop too many points early on. We were definitely well underdone for the Macarthur game but we were good enough against the Jets and took a point away against last years benchmark. If we
  10. This is becoming a bit of an issue for Trump. I’ve read that a lot of the arrested rioters are working with their lawyers to argue the same defense, i.e. I thought it was ok because the President told me to do it. By the time the senate impeachment trial starts a few of these arguments will have already been made it court so it makes it harder for Trump to claim he didn’t incite the riot.
  11. The referee set the precedent with the penalty. You can push the ball past someone, run straight into them and win the foul.
  12. This article from the Washington Post by an expert of constitutional law is refuting the argument being made by some that once Trump is out of office impeachment can’t be applied to him. In there he talks about the separation of votes for conviction and for disqualification from future office. “To be sure, a former officer may no longer be “removed” even upon conviction by a two-thirds vote. But that has no bearing on whether such an ex-officer may be barred permanently from office upon being convicted. That separate judgment would require no more than a simple majority vote.”
  13. Woman trampled in Capitol riots had 'don't tread on me' flag One of the Trump supporters who died at the Capitol went with the Gadsden flag, i.e. the coiled up rattlesnake with the "don't tread on me" caption. Her friend is claiming that she died when she was trampled by the crowd. While its easy to laugh at her being killed by irony, accounts from her friends and family say that she was an otherwise normal, decent person that just went down the Qanon rabbit hole.
  14. Well apparently they cancelled public tours of the Capitol due to the rona, so the only outsiders allowed in are guests of members of congress and their staff. A bunch of congress members have written to the new house and senate Sergeants of Arms and the Capitol Police Chief to start investigations into why there were a suspicious number of guests on the day before the riot, and why the rioters seemed to know their way around the building so well, almost like they've been shown around before.
  15. Pressley's chief of staff said her office's panic buttons 'had been torn out' before Capitol riot From an interview with Democratic representative Ayanna Pressley's Chief of Staff Sarah Groh:
  16. Republican Lauren Boebert was just elected to the House of Reps and is a proper second amendment nut job who says she takes her gun into the Capitol "because it's her right". Interesting that she was tweeting updates of where everyone, particularly the speaker, was during the riot. Congressmen have confirmed that the Sergeant of Arms told her multiple times not to make any social media posts for security reasons. There's also this reply to one of her tweets.
  17. I believe it's a separate vote. The article of impeachment asks for "removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States." The senate decides whether he should be removed from office (kind of pointless when it won't happen until after he's gone anyway) and then they vote again as to whether he should be disqualified from future office. I read somewhere that while a President has never been removed from office through impeachment federal judges have. In those cases it needed a two thirds majority to find them guilty but only a
  18. Weird one in the Burnley v Manchester United game in the prem yesterday. United defender Luke Shaw makes a tackle in his defensive third which the referee deems to be legal. United make their way up the field and play the ball in behind the defense for Cavani to go one on one with the keeper. Burnley defender Robbie Brady brings him down just outside the box and the referee gives a foul and a yellow card. VAR tells the ref it's probably a red for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity and he should review it on the little TV. The referee reviews it and agrees that the Brady should be
  19. Trump impeached again. 10 House Republicans crossed the floor to vote with Democrats.
  20. We got goal of the week and save of the week.
  21. For the record I actually agree with the current approach to go through the full approval process rather than rush it through. We have no Covid patients in ICU and have had only two deaths in the last few months. There's no need to take the risk of rushing it through and it looks like we're on track to be the first country to grant general approval for a Covid vaccine. Everyone else so far has used emergency exemptions.
  22. I work in devices so I may be wrong here as I don't have the experience with medicines, but my understanding is that the exemption because of emergency applies to "therapeutic goods" generally and doesn't specify only devices. While the risks are significantly higher I believe it's still within the minister's power to exempt medicines in the event of a national emergency.
