  1. It's Friday. Thank ****. Decent weather forecast for the weekend too.
  2. Later Dave. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. We don't want arse prints on the door. What's her position on the riot squad? And the use of pepper spray? In real terms though, she's not going to work out. She pronounces names way too correctly.
  3. Suggestions where to get a decent deal on car tyres in Penrith? Kinda urgent. Im doing my searching and half the websites I go to don't have prices, which is making it somewhat annoying. Suggestions on specific brands of tyres are also welcome. The dunlops I have at the moment have lasted forever (really, I probably should have changed them a while ago, but lets not talk about that), but are a bit pricey from what I have been able to find.
  4. More of a whinge from the AFL about the SCG. Poor darlings are feeling like second class citizens when they travel north apparently. Jonathan Brown says AFL treated like ‘second-class citizens’ in NSW and Queensland Triple premiership Lion Jonathan Brown says the AFL is treated like “second-class citizens” in the northern states as the ugly stand-off between multiple parties over a possible SCG drop-in wicket continues. The SCG Trust, prompted by a request from the AFL, has formed a committee to assess the merits of switching to drop-in pitches at a venue which has hosted Test cricket since 1882. AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan fired off a strongly-worded letter to the Trust earlier this year, having taken up the fight for drop-ins on behalf of SCG tenants Sydney Swans. But Cricket Australia (CA) boss Kevin Roberts made it clear last week he “unconditionally supports” Cricket NSW’s opposition to drop-in wickets at the SCG, adding that ripping up “arguably the most unique pitch in world cricket” wouldn’t be in the interests of Australian sports fans or SCG members. Speaking on Fox Footy’s On The Couch, Brown said the attitude of both cricket organisations was typical of how the AFL is viewed in New South Wales and Queensland. “Look at all the empty stands when the cricket’s on and the packed stands when the footy’s on,” Brown told On The Couch with tongue somewhat planted in cheek. “AFL is second-class citizens north of the border. That’s what it comes back to — it’s as simple as that. “If it was rugby league that was the only winter code sport played on the SCG, I guarantee you there’d be a drop-in wicket.” A change to a drop-in wicket would require an overhaul of the iconic ground, allowing a bigger entrance for drop-in wickets to be trucked in. However, it’s only a matter of time before the Trust lobbies for government funds to upgrade the Brewongle-Churchill stands and the drop-in switch could form part of that proposal. The Trust would also have to find somewhere to grow the drop-in pitches in a packed precinct that has come to define Sydney’s increasingly heated code war. Brownlow Medallist Gerard Healy, who played 81 games for the Swans from 1986 to 1990, described it as a “shallow debate” so far. “The best reason so far that I’ve read against the change is that it’s called ‘a cricket ground’. Well, how convincing is that,” Healy told On The Couch. “The Adelaide wicket has already proven that new technology in drop-in wickets can provide an even better surface than the old, so it should not be feared. “Surely major venues have an obligation to be as multi-purposed as possible, surely all major venues are obligated to provide the safest possible playing field, which from personal experience the hardened centre wicket is not. “Surely we need a more sophisticated debate than what we’ve already had.” https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-2019-jonathan-brown-says-afl-treated-like-secondclass-citizens-in-nsw-and-queensland/news-story/2ad2330a2e1b2b01fd0c6d4f8ef573ce
  5. Considering the US have never finished outside the top 3 - something that Europe as a whole can't claim - you'd have to say they're doing something right too.
  6. I did know a girl (years ago) that I would have to consider not breaking for if I saw her crossing the road. On the plus side though, she taught me exactly the type of person i DON'T want in my life. And I haven't seen her in years. Strangely enough, my life got better after pissed her off. Is that the type of girl your friend is after?
  7. Growing up, the only thing rarer than getting them at home was getting the chocolate biscuits like Tim Tams, which was pretty much never. There's something about the choc filling that does it for me. LOVE a Kingston biscuit. And considering the crap they usually have in the tin, I think I've hit the morning jackpot Don't fret it, I took the only 2 in the tin and enjoyed them. No risk to you. If you notice an over supply and think it needs some attention, let me know. Happy to take one for the team
  8. Went to the biscuit tin at work, and I was surprised that not only were there still biscuits in the tin (they fill it at 7:30 and people seem to have biscuits for breakfast, so there's pretty much nothing left at morning tea time when I make a cuppa), but they were Kingstons. KINGSTONS!! Possibly one of the best biscuits ever made, and a change from the normal scraps I usually find (and ignore). My morning was in danger of being a real arse of a morning, but this has saved it.
  9. Who is Mr Gorsky? On July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 lunar module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon. His first words after stepping on the moon, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were televised to earth and heard by millions. But, just before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark "good luck, Mr. Gorsky." Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what the 'good luck, Mr. Gorsky' statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled. On July 5, 1995, in Tampa bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26-year-old question about Mr. Gorsky and this time he finally responded because his Mr. Gorsky had just died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could now answer the question. Here is the answer to “who was Mr. Gorsky?" In 1938, when he was a kid in a small mid-western town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit the ball, which landed in his neighbour’s yard by their bedroom window. His neighbours were Mr. And Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "Sex! You want sex?! You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
  10. I'm not one for a conspiracy theory, but consider: Football have issues with security? Tumbleweeds AFL have issues with security? Suddenly, 400 guards have been suspended
  11. And Harper. FMD the 3 of them need their bald heads knocked together.
  12. Pretty much agree with you here (good grief, maybe that means I'm getting old too). I would add that TV commentators (and the media in general) need to have clause in their contracts that says they must actually know and understand the rules before commenting on a decision and why it's right or wrong or whatever. Most of them (well, the Fox team anyhow) really have very little clue.
