Are you suggesting Mileusnic isn’t Australian?
I really, really rate him. Just a lack of consistency is stopping SFC poaching him

Each club's state of affairs before the A-League restart: Adelaide

I’ve been a huge GB critic, but even I have to admit he’s shown plenty of improvement. Still shouldn’t be a starter in any serious team though. His touch and finishing are still below average, as is his composure.

Which shows the low bar he started with!

That’s your opinion. I disagree.

Football in Australia must unite the old with the new

Disagree Nick. The quality is much better now than at the start of the A-league. It’s certainly much higher than the NSL days. Rose coloured glasses mate.

No one is “walking” because of the standard. SFC gave raised the bar for quality. Have crowds grown? No. Quality and crowd numbers aren’t linked

Never heard of Leo Barry Stu. Can’t believe a provincial moment comes ahead of the Aloisi penalty

Australia’s ten most inspirational sporting moments

Great idea. Match highlights and reports

As sport goes into lockdown, what do you want to read on The Roar?

We missed our chance for Singapore when we kept the borders open for too long

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Agree LH. A total shambles (remembering we’ve been planning for pandemics for decades)

No one could handle this any worse than Morrison has.

I’m a huge football fan but stopped watching or even checking results 2 weeks ago

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Yep. Hopelessly inconsistent.

Bigger issues at play here Chris

There will be tens if not hundreds of thousands of job losses. Truly terribly.

Better than hundreds of thousands of lost lives though. Shut the economy down, save lives

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

No. Contact with others increases the risk of transmission.

Australia, the only country in the world that values sport over life….

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Unfortunately too true. Astonished that people are arguing that sport is “low risk”.

I invite them to join my colleagues and I on the frontlines in another month. Our risk of death will be even higher than it should (17 dead doctors in Italy ) because people are playing sport and getting their hair cut..

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Substitute “could explode here” to “will explode here”.

I think the gravity will finally hit when we go from 2 deaths a day to 4 to 8 to 40 to 200 to 500. The panic will begin when an AFL player or young celebrity ends up in ICU, (or dead) or when a famous older (60-70’s) person will die, the realisation that EVERYONE is at risk of death.

Close everything that isn’t important ( how the F are hairdressers open!!!). Stay home unless you absolutely have to. Sport?!!!

We are going to regret the lack of leadership and delay in acting

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Yeah I’ve read it. Key points; all end games lead to mass deaths…

Shut down now and hard

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

As doctors and nurses are stretched we’ll need the next best qualified people to step up e.g. vets and physios and take over the basic roles being performed now e.g. swabbing

Thankfully Gladys seems to be far more intelligent than Scomo

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

History shall record our national leader’s incompetence. Songs shall be sung about his failure to act in a timely and appropriate manner, despite evidence suggesting any delays would be deadly

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

We’ll be much closer to Italy than Singapore. We lack the discipline for social distancing, exhibit A Bondi

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

Absolutely Nick. We need to substantially increase testing. Vets and sports medicos, physios can all play a vital role.

In a years time when we count the toll of this I can guarantee we’ll all be saying “if only we’d acted sooner”…

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

There is work and essential work. The choice is to take a big economic hit in the short term or an enormous cost of life hit AND and
a big economic hit in the longer term.

Business as usual from a work POV will significantly increase the death toll.

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

No. It should have been cancelled 2 weeks ago.

Unfortunately far too many people continue to underestimate the gravity of COVID. Without wanting to panic anyone, we have around 2000 ICU beds. At its projected peak we may need 10x that many…. What happens to those without an ICU bed? They die. Thousands upon thousands. Australians. There may be Roar readers among that…

The ONLY way to prevent this is by social isolation . We must “flatten the curve” or we will be refering to this period as possibly the greatest catastrophe in modern history. The extent of the disaster is in our hands. Stay home. Footballers travelling interstate and having direct contact with others will increase the spread, the death toll. It is not only unnecessary but irresponsible and reckless. Everyone stay home.

Unfortunately our government have acted incredibly slowly. Where Italy are now, > 600 deaths a day is where we are likely to be in 2-3 weeks. There is no economic justification for it. Lives must be prioritised.
It is insane that schools are still open, insane that you are allowed to get your haircut.

Should the A-League still be on tonight?

It appears from the comments many people still do not grasp the seriousness of this, and how poorly the government have handled it.

This is the single greatest disaster any of us have faced in our lifetimes. There will be Roar readers who will be dead by the end if this.

Look at Italy. This is us in 3 weeks. We were warned and have chosen to ignore it. Let’s all go to Bondi…

A-League and national codes' stubbornness shows where priority lies in Australian sport
