The ref made the correct call. No mistake was made.


#3088926 Super League on Aus TV

a guy on there says the early morning super league broadcast in oz game out rated the A-league matches

https://mobile.twitt...891229293547520

it's nearly as high as the big "super" rugby derby played at a much better time of day.


#3078234 Eng v NZ - What The Hell is Going On?

Posted by Copa on 25 February 2015 - 06:02 AM

With the huge number of rectangular stadiums in the UK, using an oval stadium is simply baffling.


#3077701 WCS tv ratings similar to SL grand final

Fantastic result. Another million on the BBC highlights too.

This concept can be a real money maker if nurtured carefully.


#3076293 Wayne Bennett did not know there is a "series" or that there would be...

Posted by Copa on 22 February 2015 - 04:55 AM

So, just as it's all looking like a great new concept with legs, along comes supercoach and talks down the whole thing in addition to highlighting a lack of communication within the "system".

Can't all parties get together and talk about the aims and goals of this event so that they all sing from the same song sheet during the actual event?? Seems a tad amateurish to me.


#3074550 NRL to have season opener at Wembley?

Posted by Copa on 19 February 2015 - 07:45 AM

SOO could pull a crowd at Wembley. Huge numbers of Aussies live in London plus general UK rl fans might be interested.

Can't see an NRL game pulling big numbers

#3056562 Live stream of first international game of 2015

No daylight savings in Queensland. It upsets the cows and the extra hour of sun in the evening fades their curtains




#3055471 Sponsorship outrage!

Posted by Copa on 14 January 2015 - 07:07 AM

Being a natural bodily function doesn't make it harmless to others.  Quite the opposite in fact.  That's why hand washing is so important to our health.

 

As you say, we ingest chemicals - natural and manmade - every day.  Some are more harmful than others.  Cars in particular are a big risk and yet I hear nobody suggesting they are banned.  Yet here we are, some people making a big song and dance about something that is of no risk to anyone else but the user, if that (and even then, of far less risk than the 60 noxious chemicals previously ingested by said users).

According to some recent studies - "The University of Southern California finds that the secondhand smoke from e-cigarettes contains certain harmful metals that are significantly higher than those in secondhand smoke from traditional cigarettes."

"they also found that e-cigarette smoke contains chromium - a toxic element that is not present in traditional cigarettes - and nickel at levels four times higher than normal cigarettes."

So, toxic chemicals in the "smoke" and promoting a highly addictive substance to families.

 

The old cars pollute too argument seems to be straight from some old-school pro-cigarette rhetoric that was around a decade or so ago.  Governments are always trying to clean up cars and the pollution they make.  This is because people don't like it and don't accept bad car pollution it as a new normal.

 

There hasn't been enough rigorous scientific testing of e-smokes to say that  e-passive smoking is safe.  Regardless of that, it's simply a disgrace to promote a new delivery system of a highly addictive drug to families.
