Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

It confirms the Democrat's worst fears that 2016 was not just some weird aberration that would be overturned the next time around. The Republican's consolidated their new Trump base, and in a midterm that traditionally should have seen the Republicans suffer huge losses, it just didn't happen. Its ...

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

The result is almost unprecedented in US political history. To put it into perspective, Obama lost 63 house seats and lost 6 Senate seats in 2010 during his first midterms. Trump only lost 33/34 house seats, including 4 in PA which occurred due to new boundaries, and actually GAINED more seats in th...

Re: New jumper 2019?

I like the simple V, or those jerseys we wore in 2008-2010.

They kinda remind me of NFL Jerseys, they were simple, but looked great out on the field.

Re: New Jerseys 2019

Not trying to be divisive, but am genuinely wondering if the lack of Orange Jersey is a show of strength from Ashfield to say that now they hold the keys, there won't be a Balmain-style jersey anymore? As an ex-Balmain supporter, im grateful that Ashfield is propping up the JV, and if this is the p...

Re: Hayne plane

I get the guy comes across as a knob head, but even on a mediocre day he is better than most of the blokes in our backline.

If Coach Madge thinks he is worth a punt, then i'd welcome it.

Otherwise its nothing to lose sleep over.

Re: R. I. P. Balmain

I understand the vitriol for Elias, but at the end of the day it is the Board who is responsible for the Club's current position. Elias brokered a deal to save the Club from going under, and slugged them a massive ongoing management fee for doing so. The club was under no obligation to accept the de...

Re: P. C HAS TAKEN OVER

Was asked to be a trainer for the girls/female nines comp team/s today and am considering my involvement. Funnily enough, part of the reasoning was as a result of a situation in which I felt quite uncomfortable at our club presentation day. A cluster of girl mini and mod players at our club were ar...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

This thread contains more drama, suspense, faux outrage, twists and turns than any TV show i have seen in a while.

Dems will take the House Col at the very least. I'm not saying this guy has a crystal ball, but Larry Schweikart is one of the few people who correctly predicted the outcome of the 2016 election.

Re: Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

For the sake of the USA i hope the democrats get absolutely annihilated in the mid-terms. It may force them to wake up and step back from the edge of total insanity, where they have moved so far to the left that Bernie Sanders looks like a moderating force these days. No country can successfully pro...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Great news re Brooks.

Hope Bennett changes his mind about 2019, but not holding my breath though.

Just hope we don't look back in 2-3 years and say if only we got Wayne Bennett on board when we had the chance...
