An NFL player would get the ball and streak down the side for a score

Could they tackle a 110kg Tongan winger charging at them? Or kick the ball 50m to get out of trouble? Much different skill sets needed.

We should open a orphanage here. 

Placing children in an orphanage is pretty much the worst thing you could do to child victims of war - or any children.

I'd be far more worried about the meth situation than wacky weed. Chalk and cheese.

Expected result. Well done on making Qatar, Samurai Blue! The Socceroos with three debutantes and poor form were sadly not at the level of this very experienced, quality Japan team.

Moriyasu is a top manager. The way he has this team set up, they could - with some luck - go far into the knockout stages in Qatar. Playing the tournament in familiar conditions will help them too. Good luck in Qatar, Japan - they are probably many Aussie's team to follow now!

Italy missing the Cup...now theres a shock!

Best player I have ever seen. No contest. Could win a game single-handedly through his magic.

Flawed individual off the pitch, no doubt, but complete genius on it. 52 is way too young.

Thanks for all the great memories, Warnie. There'll never be another one.

@ CLJF - Tough crowd here! It is the regular Scotland national team, who, along with the mens team, compete as "Team GB" in only the Olympics.

Well done to them all and the Japanese ladies.

Posted in: Trudeau to use emergency powers across Canada See in context

Authorities seized 13 long guns, handguns, sets of body armor, a machete, a large quantity of ammunition and high-capacity magazines.

Good police work in finding these weapons and arresting those who took them to the protest. Truly scary to think what may have happened.

Well done to the vast majority of Canadians in getting vaxxed and doing the best they can to protect their communities. For me, the last paragraph says it all:

Pandemic restrictions have been far stricter in Canada than in the U.S., but Canadians have largely supported them. The vast majority of Canadians are vaccinated, and the COVID-19 death rate is one-third that of the United States.

Posted in: Most of Japan's embassy staff in Ukraine to leave as tensions grow See in context

But they've seen the trap that awaits them in Biden continuing to spin out the game until HIS needs are met (whether that need is the 'strong hero' reputation when the paper tiger doesn't move, the veneer of legitimacy to the plans to steal assets from Russians to prop up his government, or forcing Russia to do something that he can then declare to be them starting a war, which would also prop up his government) namely that it creates the conditions for even those who lost the last national Ukrainian election and aren't bothered by it being overthrown, but aren't that invested in the present regime due to its corruption to decide that the regime has to go, even if it results in the resumption of national elections they won't win.

Don't take this the wrong way, but the occasional full-stop might add a little coherence to any points you (may) be making here.

One rule for the elite and one for the regular bloke. And then Aussies get angry when someone calls the country a neo-communist state. Once again, I'm glad I left that place.

As an regular, "non elite" person, I'd like to get into Japan to visit again soon. However I am presently prevented from getting a visa. I accept their rules, and don't badmouth the country or call it a "neo-communist state", "Chinese tributary state" or such nonsense.

"My government alone will decide who can enter and leave this country" - S. Morrison.

Apparently not.

That boast is not going to play well in the May election. What an epic and desperate stuff up by the stinking conservative Morrison government.

So how did the draconian lockdowns and restrictions of people work to keep the virus out? Dont say nobody pointed out how misguided the policy is.

Still, they have a Covid death rate infinitely better than your country. Averaging 7 deaths per day.

Thanks to vaccination.

Posted in: Djokovic given medical exemption to play at Australian Open See in context


Thr Australian government has banned hundreds of thousands of vaccinated people - many with very compelling reasons - coming and going into the country for two years. All the while granting plenty of celebrity visas on "critical skills" grounds. Novak is just one of these exceptions.

Shame on Tennis Australia for applying for the exemption. The storm theyve created will fall on their heads.

Bigger shame on the Australian government for issuing the visa.

Posted in: No Novak yet but rest of tennis prepares for Australian Open See in context

An absolute disgrace for Victoria and Australia allowing an anti vaxxer to play in the Aus Open.

Lost all respect for tennis Australia. One law for the rich and a tougher law for the poor.



But let's remember who stated, many times:

"The federal government decides who can enter and exit Australia." - S. Morrison.

This is on the feferal governments head.

Shame on them, shame on slimy Scott, the liar from the Shire.

Posted in: Australian PM upbeat despite virus surge See in context

Why hasnt Dan Andrews pulled a lockdown with 8000 cases today? He use to love lockdowns for 100 cases a day. 

Is it really that hard to understand?

Well over 90% of people now vaccinated, and as a result only a handful are dying. The vast majority of them, of course, unvaxxed. The unvaxxed delta risk of 3-4 months ago is largely gone.

And your remedy for this ‘fear mongering’ is to claim:

100k protesters ‘EVERY’ day into infinity

Exactly. Laughable comments like "100k protestors ready to march every day" are the only fear mongering I can see.

Posted in: Australian rugby player arrested on cocaine possession charge See in context

Sadly, not a surprise to me to wake up to this. Ferguson has a history of anti-social and illegal behaviour. At 31, he has never grown up and should never be anywhere near alcohol. There is something called due diligence that NEC neglected to apply. He has a conviction for indecent assault here in Australia, among other incidents of bad behaviour on the drink and sackings from clubs. He played for my league club here and we were happy to let him go. 

NEC will be asking some tough questions to Michael Chieka over this recruitment.

Posted in: Coronavirus cases skyrocket across Australia as Omicron spreads See in context

Another thing, how testing everyone will guarantee that number of deaths will be zero? South Korea and Australia; countries that test everyone has huge number of deaths.

"Huge numbers of deaths"? Huh? The 7 day average deaths in Australia: 7 per day. I think most nations would be very happy with those numbers. The US is still tragically running at 1500 plus per day.

From all the reading I have done, it does not seem the omicron variant leads to too many deaths, so I dont imagine those death numbers will skyrocket in such a vaccinated nation as Australia. The US with far lower vaccination numbers is a very different story.

Unfortunately it seems the spread of omicron was inevitable once the borders were opened and all quarantine measures removed.

This is easily the worst England team I have seen in my 35 years watching test cricket. Apart from Root there are simply no batsmen. They need a shake up of their outdated, weak county system to become competitive. It may well take a decade.

Agree with BigYen.

Even as an Aussie I was hoping for an entertaining series like last years brilliant one vs India. England have been so poor the media here are talking us up as world-beaters. We aren't. I predicted 4-0, looking like 5-0 now. Boring.

Lots of Vietnamese crime here. When the immigration push happened, the nepalis have been overall, well behaved. The Vietnamese have been responsible for a lot of crimes. Like stealing off farms, overrunning visas.

As far as I know they are sending "dignitaries", unlike Australia, the US, NZ or UK. Xi did not attend the Tokyo Olympics so it was never going to be the PM anyway.
