Re: The Politics Thread 2019

I see your point but I disagree with it. The greens for example if they finish with 9 or 10 seats thats more then 10% of the 76 seats. Equally the fair right divided amongst 4 or so parties get about the same amount of the vote yet might end up with 2, 3 or 4 seats. Now I am sure if the far right O...

Re: The Politics Thread 2019

Imo this is garbage for one the senate is less representative the house of reps due to state vote distortion with nsw voting in 6 senators and Tasmania also have long 6 senators.

Re: The Politics Thread 2019

The Senate is going to be interesting, I think - here's an ABC prediction somebody screencapped: You need 39 to pass anything. LNP + One Nation + Bernadi = 37.

Re: 2019 Rd 8 V Panthers: Game Day

A good win. Was getting a little shaky towards the final minutes, even though Penrith were never going to come back.

We still apparently gave away 10+ penalties, that needs to improve if we're going to beat the Roosters.

Re: 2019 Rd 8 V Panthers: Game Day

According to Maloney, Penrith had the wind this half. Tough ask for them to come back from 14-0 with the wind against them.

Penrith have got a good few breaks, but it's all falling to pieces for them shortly after.

Well that one's a bit of a reality check, I think. 5 and 2 is probably a better reflection of where we are than 6 and 1 is. The first 20 mins was very good, then after Rapana's injury resulting in the edge reshuffle, and a LOT of penalties against due to ill-discipline... it all went downhill. We've...

Hmm. Pass of the ground definitely isn't allowed, not sure I've seen it penalised too many times, though. Usually just gets called back.
