    I remember in about 2003 when Jack Daniels dropped its alcohol content from 43% to 40% without announcing it.

    And when bottles of spirits went from 750 mL to 700 mL, I don't know if that was announced nor when but I would bet you that the price didn't drop accordingly. Can anybody shed some light on this?.

    Lottoland

    and to see the name pasted all over the fencing when you drive past the run down suburban ground on the Northern beaches makes it more despising.

    Lol, new I would get a rise from you when I posted that, I actually like Brookvale oval, I just don’t like the Lottoland badging on the out side.

    I’m trying to work out where centrebet stadium comes into it ? I follow the Roosters and they play out of Allianz Stadium, although I still refer to it as the SFS, but I do agree with your sentiments about Centrebet though.

    Lol not exactly a rise more of a callout on something you missed

    I'll never refer to Brookie as lottoland, the sfs as allianz or Penrith park as whatever stadium they pick for the year

    Penrith park is barely bigger than Riverstone park, it's not a f**king stadium

    Your right I did miss out centrebet Stadium, I actually thought Penrith Park was still called
    Pepper Stadium, lol, and do agree about it not being a Stadium, mind you it is a hell of a lot better than the first time I went there in 1977.

    Any Australian business that uses Americans or American voiceovers in their ads.

    Sorry folks but most of us aren't that dumb to think that Seppos are intellectually superior to any other nationality.

    The one that sticks in my mind is that poxy mealy mouthed Erin Brockovich in those Shine Lawyers ads.

    The epitome of sickening.

    Was a member in my early days as a business owner about 4 years back, then didn't bother because of how f**king hopeless they were- derelict websites that looked like they hadn't been updated since they sponsored Norths, reps that never got back to me after calling to see if there was anything they could do for me and I'd told them- you name it.

    Cut to about 2 months ago and I get a call from a rep, offering me 3 months free membership and a 10k credit line. I figure why not, things might have changed. The website it still basic, the majority of listed items for sale have no display picture- and that's if they're items actually worth spending on- and I've only had one interested lead that my rep told me about bother to follow up.

    I signed off on a project with that one lead yesterday. I plan to do the work, get a testimonial from him, spend as much as I can on a worthwhile item using my Trade dollars through the online store, sell it for the same price in cash on eBay and then f**k right off once the 3 months are up.

    How on earth they survive as a business baffles me....
