AFL is pathetic
The AFL is pathetic.
No one can argue with the video footage out of the Greater Western Sydney versus Western Bulldogs game on the weekend, but the AFL can't afford to have a"bad image" so everyone shuts up.
You have lost me.
Call it for what it is. Greene is a bad example of what the game should be about, and unfortunately with decisions like this kids will be tainted.
I will not support anything to do with the AFL anymore.
And you know what, I don't think they give a damn!

Footy needs fans
If you ban spectators from going on the ground, less and less people will go to the games. It is country footy and we need that atmosphere.

Long lost friends
My name Phil Stanton, of Western Australia, and I am trying to get the addresses of friends, or their families of 74 years ago.
They are Lorraine, or Des Hull, formally of 362 Centenary Street in East Albury (in 1945). I believe that Lorraine (AKA Sally) and her family might have been somewhere in the Geelong area. As I am now 92 years old, I was hoping to regain contact before it's too late, and was hoping your readers you could help.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org

Green and gold garbage
I watched Prime Minister Scott Morrison's appearance on ABC's 7:30 on Monday night.
I just loved the green and gold tie, matching the green encyclopaedias in the background along with the green shaded world map. I was left wondering if the Prime Minister was aiming for a career promotion as a house colour advisor.
Adding to it was the Australian flag as if to show true loyalty to the country. All the while this was showing Mr Morrison was telling the audience that black was white. To add insult to injury, the Prime Minister's previous "I stopped the boats" crass display seemed to be usurped by a model of the Endeavour n the shelving in the background?
If only that was one boat that was stopped. If only.

Act of treason
In law, treason is criminal disloyalty to the state. It is a crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's nation or Sovereign.
The Parliament of England has shown this to the people by not allowing Brexit to go ahead as was asked by the majority of the people in the country. Therefore the majority in the English Parliament should be thus charged. The Prime Minister should be talking to the Queen and asking that something be done as surely this is not only treason to the state but also to her Majesty.
