    Hi all,

    It's been pretty quiet in here of late, so here is a thread to discuss all things footy/sport/current affairs (not just Eels related) over the off-season.
    No doubt, Maroubra will re-hash a few 7 year old threads to keeps us amused on the odd occassion, but we'll need more than that.


    I'll get the ball rolling.

    Best away ground you've been to: Suncorp.
    Worst away ground you've been to: Shark Park
    Best away ground food: There isn't any.
    Other teams supporters who are the biggest knobs: Sea Eagles
    Should radio rights be expanded to more than the ABC/2GB/2MMM? Yes.
    Is Ray Warren past it? Yes.
    Do you hope Manly lose the WCC? Yes
    Do you hope GWS is an epic fail? Without doubt
    Will the Aussies beat the Indians in the Summer test series? Draw
    Gillard or Abbott? Rudd
    Will Fisheel ever return to the forums? Yep, but under a new username.
    Should we export uranium to India? Only if they sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
    Should gays be allowed the right to legal marriage? No.
    Do you prefer a hot summer or a cool summer? Cool.

    I should put this in the PD, but most people will miss it, so mods, f**k off.
    Feel free to ask your own questions or raise any issue you feel like.

    Have a pleasant summer girls.

    Suity

    Why do we need a random crap thread when we have Boxy's signings thread for that?

    Fair point, but Boxy's been lacking in content lately, so I thought there'd be enough crap to end up in this thread to cover the crap that ends up in his thread.

    Best away ground food: There isn't any (used to be donuts at Belmore).

    Is Ray Warren past it? Yes (sad really).
    Do you hope Manly lose the WCC? Definitely
    Do you hope GWS is an epic fail? It will be ( and it will still get talked up by flogball media)
    Will the Aussies beat the Indians in the Summer test series? Boring, interferes with the footy season
    Gillard or Abbott? Anyone but Juliar
    Will Fisheel ever return to the forums? Yep, when Krudd returns to lead the socialist army.

    If only we can be positive for the mighty Eels on these forums, would make the summer a lot more bearable :crazy::crazy:

    Should we export uranium to India? Yep (they'll only buy it from Canada etc if we don't sell it to them)
    Should gays be allowed the right to legal marriage? Of course. There is no compelling argument against it.

    They would but those against gay marriage don't have valid reasons.
    If heterosexuals are allowed to marry then why not homosexuals? God hates "gays"?
    It's because traditionalists either despise them or are afraid of them.
    Not saying that applies to you, but why it is so frowned upon is beyond me.
    And I am a heterosexual that is, to put it simply, "frigid", so I like to think I can see all sides of the argument.
    If people are in such relationships then why can't they be allowed to legally ratify their communion in a fitting ceremony?

    I think there is a hidden meaning in those questions, maybe something to do with gays getting married and fishy disappearing

    No one does. It's wholly prejudicial and not based on any form of logic.
    If I can get married because I love a person of the opposite gender, why can't a person marry someone of their own gender when they love each other as well?

    Yes. I'm fundamentally opposed to it. That's my belief.

    That's your opinion and I respect that.
    At least you are honest as to the reason you oppose it rather than "religious" morons who try to justify their belief with "God hates gay 's" rally's because they are too cowardly to have an actual opinion and flock like sheep to priests and priestesses.
