Re: Bad And Mean podcast

The episode talks about what role he’s playing for the Raiders in 2020. Opposition gets a mention, but more about an off the bench role and our excellent depth.

Re: Bad And Mean podcast

Haven’t listened to it all yet. My major gripe so far isn’t a long term thing. It was just that you spent so much time talking about BJ and his role as a Raider when he’s almost certainly goneski.

That is interesting. I wonder if we'll see a change of out-fielding tactic now. We are used to seeing players patrol the boundaries and attempt to jump (from inside) if the ball is travelling over their heads. However they are best to leave the field of play (after the ball has been bowled), wait o...

Fair call on the electricity usage. I misinterpreted your point on that completely. My apologies for that.

It’s not a perfect measure of development though is it? You wouldn’t say Norway are far more developed than the UK.

Cheers for the link. The problem is you’re arguing across two different timelines.

Diesel is hydrocarbons. Burning it emits carbon dioxide. If you have a price on carbon then that gets factored into the price of diesel and people buy and use less diesel.
