  1. Look I have been told by sources who work in these Jail and even a guy who got put in there. They all say the worst cell is the youth one as its dominated now by Sudanese Kids who fight with the Aboriginal Prison who also have high representation. We have known for a long time that doing jail time in some Aboriginal people has become so common place it has become an Indication Ceremony like for some people in Black and Latino Communities in America. We need to act now and stop the same happening for Sudanese People. Also living in a Housing Flat itself is fucked. That coupled with being a migrant from brutal violence woukd effect anyone. I agree the papers make thing sounds more sophisticated. At the same time they have a point that the Percentage of Sudanese People in jail rises at scary rates each year. Whilst alongside that our Juvenile Centre have become completely different and now the dangerous jails to work in... But people not addressing the issue for what it is due to being scared to be called a Racist... is wasting precious time.
  2. SJW making jokes when PPL talk about Sudanese gangs, implying it's simply racism. Don't these people want Social Justice? Yes - We are not talking about sophisticated gangs or crime. But we have a generation of kids who for lack of direction are rapidly becoming a Criminal Class as they know no other life. We don't want to end up like America, where the combination of primarily Crack and also the side effects of the end of Segregation has seen so Black Men in America become a growing Prison Class. Instead of putting our heads in the sand. Let's tackle this because it's not these guys that they or those their Role Models fault they saw Mass Murders as kids and therefore find life so hard. It's not helping anyone, least of all people who traveled across the world for these kids... To see them become accustomed to Jail for life or worse take their lives. This is exactly the kind of issue why a vote for the Greens is a Vote for the Libs and not Logical, Realistic Social Policy.
  3. Yep, I will vouch that Documentaries don't draw big crowd. I spent many occasion in for ten years with 8 other people seeing the best Doco of the Season on its release. As back in the day to see the Huge Buzz Documentary Fans when they came out, you have to go in a Nova Tiny Doco Cinema. The sit 20 and have a screen the size of the best at JB. These were huge films in terms of impact later on, yet there be 12 people there after being out a couple of days. The ironic thing for us was we already lived on Lygon Street so we wear not getting much bang for our buck paying Nova Prices for that. But FWIW I still try to see a Documentary when the Cinema is thrown up as an idea. It's also been great to see how the cheaper filming technology and streaming services have allowed the amount of content in the Genre to expand recently.
  4. Strides... long time no see. What you been up too? Are you still a Gym Brah or have you made the progression to being an ALT Right, Red Pill kinda, Mens Right dude like the rest of your kind?
  5. It drives me nuts... and TBH its probably the best indicator of the quality of the league and its engagement with the Public. The player movement around the same league is something that belongs in a Semi-Professional League, where players want to stay in the local area but can still earn decent playing wages so they move from one local club to another on two year contracts when teams save up money to win a flag. This does not belong at the highest tier... the rules of the A-League are reminiscent of Command Economics and they have ultimately yielded the same results in having some very obvious built in flaws. Things like the Salary Cap, Player quotas only work if you own the game like AFL, NBA and NFL they dont when your one of many participants.
  6. It really was item which told a story of a man's dreams being severely broken...
  7. Saw a YSIDE S1 Scarf with Free Worm Badge at that Salvos in Altona for $5.
  8. I agree some fans have dropped off due to on field performances... However, many Heart fans if we still wore the Stripes at Home and could nickname the team "Heart" in a meaningful way would not walk away from a team who all be it in a lack luster manner made finals every year would be more than happy to go week in week out.
  9. For me there is actually workable solution to Pro/Rel which I agree is severely needed. I find most PPL who throw up using a whole bunch of NPL clubs as an option are usually those who have not been to a lot of NPL games like I have in the past as it def is not a solution. Most NPL fans are A-League committed and the top ones in Melbourne will always have issues attracting fans due to the Ethnic Communities attached which our so important to these club's that they will always exist. (It is why these clubs do exist - As much connectors of PPL as well as Sporting Clubs). I think the League should look at a 16 or 18 or even 20 team League with two divisions, with mainly the adding of New Generic Clubs in Geographic areas not represented (CBF with which are better than others) and then maybe South Melbourne and if there is another NPL side viable in NSW, QLD or SA (To be so they most likely need to be none ethnic). You could then have two divisions where you play the sides in your Division four times and those in the other Division two times or perhaps (3 and 2) and then 3 sides go up and down. I think its important to have the Bottom Division sides playing the Top sides so that clubs can remain relevant and competitive if they get promoted. Supporters could still see their clubs playing at the Top Stadiums and players would be more likely to stay on if relegation occurred as they are still getting a go at playing on the biggest domestic stage in some way. Getting back to City and Heart - The sad thing is such a model could have seen Heart go on and turn things around.
  10. I have quit being a MCFC fan a while ago... the Digital Red and White Away Kit was the last straw for me. I only come on here at work out of habit to really post in the Club Room. I dont think I will call myself a supporter of Western United, but I probably will have more interest in them. As I support Man United, love the color Green as a Celtic Fan and my AFL side is Geelong. I also live in a North West direction to the City these days. In saying that as I have posted a bit on here the A-League needs to make some big changes to become interesting for a lot of people of which I am one... as it is really hard to see the League as one of Club Tribalism when you have a pool of Australian players who take two year contracts at a new club every two years. The League needs to lift its standard and have Players the fans can become more attached to and I see lifting the amount of Foreign Players at clubs is the only solution. Otherwise we will continue to watch the same mediocre players move from club to club being guaranteed positions as Professional Footballers as long as they can sit among the best 200 odd Australian players based in Australia. I feel the restrictions on foreign footballers has actually been a major reason on the obvious dip in the quality of the domestic side as our players are not being made to work hard enough to earn a decent wage as domestic footballers. When you had to be among the very best in the NSL or more likely play overseas to be a Professional Australian Footballer, our players worked a lot harder on advancing themselves as players. Still today young players who have to play NPL at Top NPL clubs before being noticed for A-League squads continue to improve at a greater rate than those who have been gifted spots in Rep Sides and A-Leagues lists since being teenagers.
  11. Exactly. City has every year distanced itself from MHFC and created stronger symbolism with Man City every year. Carlton SC were very successful on the field but off the field could never get the support they needed to continue, now how many EPL fans are going to chose a club which is a replica of Man City if they support another UK club which almost all Australian footballs fans do. Man City are not that well a supported club and also as club even in Manchester, they are a side that has become a dominant side in the EPL purely due to Foreign Money that are heavily disliked by most EPL fans. For PPL who live in the West and dont support Man City - Its a pretty simple conclusion which side they will follow.
  12. All Charcoal Kits suck and so over done, they belong back in 2010 and sit up there only with the Gold Kits of the early 2000's in their awfulness... City's replacing Red and White with Charcoal was a joke and this new Away Kit is even worse. Even the MHFC Charcoal Kits were cringe worthy. I dont know how any argue with me about City being the same club as Heart. CFG allowed its Japanese Club to continue to wear Red and if they had changed the club's name and allowed them to wear Red then they would have not lost so many fans that attendances have become a joke. In fact in the saem Kit and with consistent finals the New Club probably would be sitting after MV, SFC and WSW in crowd numbers. I can only recall one of the most vocal fans on here who said they leave the club if they changed the colors also say he would not take a name change... mind u he joined the others in seeing more City games than me. The club could now very likely become the Third most supported club in Melbourne all because of one dumb decision.
  13. Lol: It always has been and always will be, it took until the 90's for the Premiers of either side to stop taking all their orders from City's "Colorful Identities".
  14. I honestly don't know how ppl on this site of all places still try to peddle the "There is more fights at the AFL... It's the media that hates and therefore picks on Soccer" line. Honestly, I wish I could say this shit. Unfortunately I cannot as I have been to Adelaide and more than once seen a Named Firm of fans attack Heart fans deliberately in a organized manner a number of times. Likewise such a group in Sydney did this did the same and one in Perth. Not only has this happened so many times with MV Groups attacking The Gimp/fans after games in a organized manner they have more than once come to games where MV aren't playing to carry out such attacks. There is no such groups amongst AFL fans, there have never been such actions taken by AFL fans and if this did come into AFL it be most likely from fans of Soccer replicating the scene from the A-League. OK, we get it you are in the Illuminati now and thus splashed the cash and went to the Theater. Strong.
  15. Surprised I was not tagged in this thread.... by @Tesla @malloy or @HeartFc Anyway I always bore people to shit on here about how if you can run a "No Policy Election" then you fucken do it because its the best strategy to get into Parliament, decides at least over 1/3 elections in Australia at both levels. This strategy made a wooden Tony Abbott a PM FFS. However its a tactic that basically only really Oppositions can use... yet the ALP gave the Libs they chance to use it instead. Seriously what a fuck up why did Bill not just smile once , shut up about anything that sounded like policy and maybe do a dance with school kids and kick a footy. Instead WE had him making complicated blustery speeches that FFS reminded me of all things the fucken campaign footage of Billy fucken McMahon. The dumbest thing about the whole result is I know that when the Bigwig Consultants come back to each Party with the reasons for the result the top one will be PPL liked the word "Scomo" and secondly nobody likes being told that an election is over and there vote (that they have to cast is useless). FWIW SCOMO's wife likability will also def be up there. Seriously why did one person not say to Bill "Keep It Simple Stupid" because his personal performance was so blatantly and obviously bad if he was in Cricket and not Politics he be banned for cheating and back playing Grade Cricket. At the end of day well played Liberals... you played it simple just kicked it down the guts and hoped for the best, tried to make as less errors and possible and won. As for the ALP surely now the members leadership vote should not be allowed to be vetoed.
