Stephen Milne’s sentence sends a rotten message on assault

Stephen Milne's sentence sends a rotten message on assault

5 days ago

It’s hard to decide what’s weaker: Stephen Milne’s behaviour for the past 10 years, or the supposed punishment it received. In being sentenced for indecent assault, Milne received no criminal conviction, just a monetary fine. You know, like a big parking ticket, except that instead of parking it involved sexual assault. Any of us can […]

Australia deserved a spanking for disrespecting Pakistan

Australia deserved a spanking for disrespecting Pakistan

11 Nov 2014

For once Australia’s cricketers should be grateful for their insane schedule. After a T20 series win against South Africa, the memory of that scalding Test defeat to Pakistan might fade faster than it has any right to. Last time Roar Radio filled an ABC commentary void was for 2013’s Test whitewash in India. Watching ball […]

When talk of the Tigers and September began a few weeks back it had the taste […]

Lemon's winners and losers, AFL Round 22

25 Aug 2014

AFL finals will start early after results set up some knockout games for the last round of the season. Twelve teams can still make the finals, five can make the top four, and the rest can make the best of one last crack at 2014. So who won big this week? Port Adelaide get my […]

What do you do with the Demons?

What do you do with the Demons?

21 Aug 2014

Last Sunday, Melbourne Football Club played one of the worst AFL games I’ve ever seen. Think World War II Italy crossed with the dying days of Fitzroy. Three goals, sixteen behinds, in a carnival of sporting poverty. A few friends and I watched the game, one of them a lifelong Melbourne supporter. By the end […]
