  1. Corruption on a global stage in pursuit of the almighty dollar FinCEN files reveal suspicious transactions were waved through despite red flags http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-09-21/fincen-files-reveal-suspicious-transactions-approved-red-flags/12685678
  2. The question ask is "How much money have the family who own the Leppington Pastoral Company donated to the Liberal Party" My take is that the Liberal (Conservative) Party have redistributed federal government money to their party. If this has occurred it is truly corruption.

  8. What a weird day. Went to my 4 appointed games and had to abandon due to water with rain failing in both goal mouths. Incident Report No 1 Volunteered for 3 other games near home which were uncovered In the second (AAM) I had to issue a straight red R6. Send off report time. The player decided to have another go after full time. Incident Report No 2. The third game was a forfeit which was found out during the AAM game.

  12. Victoria cannot get under 30 until they have 14 days of cases under 30 Sep 28 cannot happen based on the rolling 14 day for restrictions to ease in Metro VicGovDHHS (@VicGovDHHS) Tweeted: #COVID19VicData: Yesterday there were 21 new cases reported and 7 lives lost. Our thoughts are with all affected. The 14 day rolling average & number of cases with unknown source is down from yesterday as we move toward COVID Normal.

  13. There is obviously a legal case for a class action against the Commonwealth Govt on Robodebt https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/sep/19/robodebt-court-documents-show-government-was-warned-76-times-debts-were-not-legally-enforceable?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other
  14. There has been a change with regard to amount of time a referee holds the arm up e.g. waiting for the ball to be retrieved and I remember rightly, if an IDK is taken in the defensive half by the defensive team and the ball is not going to goal the arm starts up but can go down after the IDK is taken. But the second could be an FFA or Football NSW interpretation Here is a quote on IDK signals. The referee indicates an indirect free kick by raising the arm above the head; this signal is maintained until the kick has been taken and the ball touches another player, goes out of play or it is clear that a goal cannot be scored directly. An indirect free kick must be retaken if the referee fails to signal that the kick is indirect and the ball is kicked directly into the goal.
  15. Community referees fees should be paid $73 for PL, $63 for all age mens/womens/o35s etc according to the circular. If Hills choose to pay their referees more, then all their clubs have agreed to it.

    Their full of bull.... as they name implies. They are going to be a poor man's NPL on steroids
  17. And another f*** up? NPL announced as Sunday night on club website but listed as Saturday night on Football NSW website. Who is right?
  18. The NSW Govt plan is to raise the Warragamba Dam wall by many meters. And for those who don't know, Warragamba Dam has to spill recently. In fact, WaterNSW has had to release water to lower the level by at least 1 metre in case of flooding through major storms. Only 6 months to cyclone season when most water is collected in Warragamba. But yet again, the govt is in the purse of the developers to reduce the amount of land that could potentially be flooded. Hence the reason the NSW govt wants to raise the Warragamba Dam wall by many meters. And here is why they shouldn't https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/sep/18/nsw-government-ordered-to-revisit-world-heritage-assessments-for-warragamba-dam-expansion?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other
  19. You need to go to the Climate Change and Alternative Energy Thread. Middy is VERY active there.
  20. I'm still lurking in the background. Lots of midweek game to ref before the end of the season. Tonight is one of my only night's off due to a forfeit. I note that the Scumbo wants to build a gas fired power station. Personally, I'd support Thorium powered nuclear reactors for baseload power as their waste has short half lives of about 70 years and there is no chance of a meltdown. Plus there has has to multiple reactors meaning lots of jobs instead of centralized. The other point is that Australia has 20% of the world's Thorium. And the only reason the world has uranium nuclear instead of Thorium nuclear was that the US Govt wanted the easy way to plutonium for weapons
  21. What higher pay? My association is still paying the same community fees as recommended in the Football NSW circular. We have better coverage simply because of a reduction of teams. As to quality, we have some youngsters in the Football NSW RDP program. They usually do NPL Youth games on Saturday so we don't get them for Saturday games which are u12 to u15s + u16 boys (all divisions), so we lose them for youth games. They usually do Sundays for u16 girls, u17 boys, intermediate men and women, all age men/women + o35s. At the moment, we have lot of the younger referees unavailable due to exams so coverage is reduced.
