Re: The Politics Thread 2021

Of course there is influence. I just believe it is far less than Labor would have us believe. The reason I believe this is that in an age of limitless access to partisan media, people are more than at any point in modern history simply consuming media that reconfirms their own views.

Re: 2021 Trial V Roosters: Teams and Game Day *Teams p1*

I know the Roosters were missing Keary, but their staring halves were pretty pedestrian. Sam Walker has some real skill about him and great vision. He's quite small though, so not sure how ready he is for the rigours of a full NRL season. Friend is well past his best. It will be interesting to see ...

The jersey is still predominantly lime green. Blue is one of the club colours... I don't think that breaches the culture, values and traditions of the club. I'd say bottle green and black with fluro breaches tradition etc... but not this one. It isn't even the traditional blue tone for this club. I...

Re: NRL CEO Competition

I could be wrong but I thought Elliott was out for a few of the early rounds. He is a lesser version of Jackson anyway so maybe Hetherington takes his opportunity. I think Hetherington also filled in at prop last year for the warriors, so there are options there. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk
