  1. The road to the 2018 WC

    Speaking about the ref, the Honduran captain slammed the refereeing saying that he will have to answer to God on last nght's performance.

    Don't pat yourself too hard on the back.

    Don't know about Kamau's injury but he went down to the change rooms after he came off. He may naturally miss the game. I thought that was Budzinski's best game so far but he wasn't flawless and he certainly needs more fitness (which he ought to get with more game time). My only concern with Carrusca is his pace - or lack thereof.

    who would you drop to the bench?
  5. International Politics

    Not sure on this. China went to bat and gave some kind of guarantees on North Korea's behalf at the UN. Then North Korea went ahead and sent some more ballistic missiles embarrasing the Chinese government, that is when they applied the sanctions and since then they have reduced their rate of missile testing. There is no guarantee that the Chinese will keep the sanctions on a long term basis - could be just long enough for the tool to realise that he does not have that much power after all. I also recall reading (I think that it was in Foreign Affairs magazine) that back in the 50s when the war was on, Mao created the defensive lines for NK facing south. What that meant was that if ever the NK pissed Mao off the PLA would have an open highway all the way down to the DMZ. No one believes that has changed.

    To quote the Sun King, Louis XIV: "L'etat, cest moi", or in English - The State is me.

    Never stopped using mine. Second longest relationship I have ever had after alcohol and excluding parents/siblings. Been together 34 years. Never gave a toss.

    John Howard had two stints as opposition leader, so not sure about the concept of taint.

    You can troll better than that. You are not even trying anymore.
  11. RD 5 V Sydney 3/11 AAMI PARK KO 7:50

    So far only @moops has commented on Brattan's performance, which I tend to agree with. There has been mentions on this forum that he is a creative player or defensive player, but tbh on yesterday' performance, is he living up to expectations?
  12. Bruce Kamau

    But would Kamau get a game playing in the Portuguese first division league?
  13. Domestic Politics

    I have been thinking about this. And I am leaning towards the view that the constitutional framers have it right still. Three examples as to why this remains the case: Russian interference in the USA and German elections, the repeated attempts by hostile parties to break into defence (and recently succeeded), and the number of IS terrorists who were offspring of migrants but were born in the new country. This tells me that although it is a simple check it could remain effective on a first pass. Conversely, there is nothing to stop an Australian citizen who meets S44 requirements from having a conflict of interest.

    Well I didn't and don't sit near the terrace so I missed that. And glad to read that you got rid of the sectarian.
  15. TTIM: Things That Irk Me

    So far it is the only time I have heard religious sectarian crap at any sporting event. I have heard the ethnic shit which I am not a fan of either. And yes there are always dicks who jsut say dumb shit.
