    Shit happens. Nobody on here has bitched about Mahoney's ankle injury.

    Do that and it's a gimmick season....
    Honestly f**king ridiculous to not count the 2 first games.

    If the comp doesnt run at least another 13 rounds so everyone has at least played each other once then its a joke of a comp.
    The proposed 7 week comp with a 4 week finals series is an absolute farce.
    I'm happy to see league go into December if need be.
    Have a shorter pre-season and start the 2021 comp in April.

    Unless they can have everyone play each other once so 13 more games then no pointnhavung the season.
    If they want to squeeze more games then play each other once and add a few extra games

    Good man, doing a hard job.

    None of the Ruby Princess shit storm was his fault and I reckon he’s been pretty up front about stuff.

    To be fair, him Gladys and that merkin from Bega are honest operators.

    On top of that Shane Fitzsimmons has left the RFS and been appointed Resilience NSW Commissioner. He’s in charge of all disaster and recovery relief.

    f**k Im over that f**kin boat

    every f**ker who got on it needs to take responsibility for themselves .... you all chose to go on it despite what you saw pan out in Japan weeks earlier .... you made your own choices - stop blaming everyone else

    That all may be well and good but I still think that Brad Hazzard will be the sacrificial lamb. Just a gut feeling.

    I saw last night vision of the 3,000 idiots queued up to get on the Ruby Princess as the poxy passengers disembarked on 19 March. Who the f**k are so stupid to get inside that tub for a late March cruise after watching the Diamond Princess thing in Japan ?

    The main responsibility should have been with the cruise operators. Bogans afloat will always thinks it's OK to board a ship if the gate is open.

    From the 5min I saw on 60 min last night, one such couple said this...

    1. Thought it must be safe since they were allowed on
    2. Only going to Auckland
    3. Was a lot of money and no talk of refund

    Lol people are idiots. How long did they think it would take for the virus to pass from person to person? More than the time it takes to sail to New Zealand?

    Point 3 is the relevant one .... no one thought about health, they all thought about $$$s

    Who the f**k was getting on any cruise ship at any time in March? These f**kers are just as irresponsible as the young chaps over my back fence who had 3 well-distanced visitors in their back yard the other night.

    I'd say that anybody who was allowed on board in the first place. The onus was on the Health Dept and cruise liner operators to say yay or nay in the first instance. The passengers were given the green light to board so they took their chances. They may have also been persuaded to go because they didn't want to do their dollars.
