Re: The Politics Thread 2024

People are being very quiet on the whole CFMEU thing. For me it personifies every concern I have about the union movement and the Labor Party. My father was a tradey and ran a small business. He HATED the CFMEU for their bullying tactics and will never vote Labor. Unions are absolutely essential, b...

Re: The Politics Thread 2024

The shooting probably just further polarises or solidifies the Trump supporters that were going to turn out and vote for him any way. I'm not sure that it recruits him sufficiently new supporters. I think of this election as Trump having a set number of votes, and the outcome will be determined by w...

So I've come here and scrolled through pages and pages of posts, and find that GEs main contribution to the post game discussion is salty comments about the officiating.

Good take by the CM. Is this the first time that Origin isn't on their front page the day after a decider, or did it happen last time they lost as well. So salty. Image

Re: 2024 State of Origin III- Maroons v Blues

Probably the worst origin game I've seen Gagai play. Cobbo was also monstered in the opening stages. What a brutal game. The Qld backs offered nothing. They didn't get enough ball to Hammer and Walsh looked injured. Ponga didn't add much when he was on and playing lock. Walsh is showing a tendency ...
