Re: We stand as one - Member options for the remainder of 2020

I'm not really interested in the shop voucher or the credit towards next year. I'm happy enough to donate money to the Recovery Fund and get a tax deduction; I assume the donation will go to "good works". Naive maybe but whatever. What I'm interested in is what effect this has on existing seat alloc...

Re: 2020 NRL Round 3: Teams and Game Day

Don't like the fake crowd noise on Fox. Getting annoying I reckon its a great addition! Just needs a bit of fine tuning to match the feeling of the game.

Re: Canberra Raiders boss Don Furner eyes NRL's return to Canberra Stadium

It’s worth noting that Andrew Barr also said: .the NRL wouldn’t restart on May 28, .there’d be “more buses more often” and .there was no way Scott Morrison would win the election. On this occasion however I agree with the Chief Minister on no crowds by July. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6...

Re: Don Furner says John Bateman staying with Canberra Raiders

There are a few points to make here. The first is that an upgrade for JB's contract was surely coming anyway, and is even more likely now that we've lost 3 "fringe" backrowers.
