Re: The Politics Thread 2019

How is that religious freedom bill going to work? If I claim my views are religious (no matter what they are), am I protected? Or is it only state approved religions that are applicable? And now the Liberal party are going to tell a private company that it doesn't matter if an employee is costing yo...

Re: 2019 Memberships

So it takes MORE work for them if it's set to auto renew? (eg, they have to send multiple warnings and call people to make sure they are aware of it?!?) That just seems so inefficient. Wouldn't be much easier to give you a tick box that lets you opt in to auto-renew, so they can be comfortable every...

Re: 2019 Memberships

I just renewed. Geez, I don't like the forced "auto-renewal" term and condition. I now have to make an extra phone call to HQ, to stop them taking money from me in September, when they could have just given me a tick box on the website if I wanted to setup auto renewal.

Re: Playing the whistle

Just on playing to the whistle... Last night there was a play where the Cronulla player was clearly held but got up and kept on running. At the point the player kept on running, there was no whistle but Paps let him run past and kept the mark. Should Paps be crucified for this? There was no whistle ...

Yeah, looks like the NRL are setting up the touchie to be the fall guy.

But this is as much on the ref. When the flag goes up he has to stop play (according to the rule book)

Re: Playing the whistle

The touch judge is only allowed to raise his flag when the ball goes out.

He clearly raised his flag... so regardless of whether or not it went out, he made the signal (which can’t be overturned by the ref) that the ball was out.

I don't believe that religious belief is a legitimate reason to justify infringing on others rights.

I for one would vote 'NO' if all gay partners were forced into marriage. But that's not the case.

The fact that this couple doesn't want to get married shouldn't impact the couples that do.

If there was a vote to allow Catholics the lawful right to the sacrament of communion, I would vote yes.

That's because it doesn't effect me, and banning it would cause distress to people for no reason.

I can't drink the beer at the footy. One of the down-sides of being a craft brew snob. We just went to the Happy Hour at the Bolt Bar in Aranda before the game, and then rode our push bikes to the game.

Good beer, much cheaper and no problems with parking or getting out.
