I don't understand what's so funny.
This seems like an entirely reasonable petition.

Canberra Raiders fans have launched a petition to rename a town John Bateman's Bay

Some say John Bateman is "a god". Others want to use their entire back as a canvas for any tattoo artist daring enough to draw the rugby league star. Now Canberra Raiders fans have thrown their weight behind a petition to have picturesque coastal town Batemans Bay renamed "John Bateman's Bay".

Harking back to the days of getting Todd Carney voted as best player in the world when he was a rookie, and Getting Jack Off.

Petitions are a bit different to voting in polls... I'm sure people could get behind that!

Like this WIN News Canberra Facebook poll... vote YES and share the poll to your Raiders friends!

Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

A NSW town that is effectively a suburb of Canberra... of course it should be named after a Canberra Raiders player!

John Bateman's Bay: Online petition calls for town to be renamed

You know you've made it in the NRL when you have fans wanting to rename a town after you.

"It's awesome that somebody like John can come here and make such an impact because he deserves it," Soliola said. "He's somebody who has made an impact in the community and in our squad which you can see, so he deserves the accolades, but it won’t get to him he's a competitor and that's what he's shown week in and week out and it's rubbed off on the playing group."

The irony is it's already named after a Pom but one who didn't even set foot in the country or even sailed past it. It was named after one of Captain Cooks old shipmates from his youth.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
