i consider the change in the 10,000 more of a name change due to moving race course. Doomben got the oaks but lost the old 10,000 which is now called the Kingsford smith cup (1300m). also they changed the name of the BTC stakes to the 10,000 which has always been 1200m. i think that reace was promoted to Group 1 about 10 years ago.
Stradbroke field has no top liners but plenty of depth

The Brisbane winter carnival shows no respect for tradition

agree, no real stars. perhaps its due to the competitiveness of the sprinting ranks. easier to be a star at 2000 metres where you dont have to beat much

Australia's sprinting ranks at their lowest ebb this century

Agree with most of what you say.
Definitely too many G1 races but I wouldn’t use Brisbane and Adelaide as evidence
I thought the Newmarket and TJ were extremely strong this year

Spot on Barry

Queensland win again because they're better at Origin

i wouldnt have cotric, chambers, morris, gagai, arrow, hunt, mbye, wighton, Joe O, napa, fifita, murray or Crichton making this team

We still get excited about Origin but for how much longer?

agree Brett, and the problem is much worse than your numbers indicate. i have no doubt that the Australian SR franchises are fudging their numbers massively – especially at the new Bankwest stadium

Crowds: An actual national rugby crisis that demands attention

The Folau freedom of speech double standard

how many of them are ambassadors for sporting brands?

The Folau freedom of speech double standard

you seriously believe there should be no exceptions to free speech? do you know the laws around free speech? to believe there should be no exceptions is infantile.

how about the 9/11 conspiracy theorist in Clive Palmers party? or the liberal candidate forced to resign over criticism of alleged rape victim? the liberal candidate in GTasmania being forced to resign over anti Muslim comments? the victoriam liberal candidate forced to resign over anti gay comments?
happens on both sides

Izzy, the false 'silent majority' and sport in Australia

so you think the roar moderators should just let any comment and not delete and moderate comments? should they just print everything? are they stopping your freedoms?
have fun on your slippery slope

Izzy, the false 'silent majority' and sport in Australia

never acceptable ? do you know the law?

the Dt writers were told by their bosses to change as they were getting the public offside. News limited then started paying influencers on social media to start liking and supporting their tweets. This rumour has been doing the rounds on social media and comes from good sources

There's been a shift in footy media for the better

i think fans need to accept that players are mercenaries and once their job is done at the final whistle they feel a brotherhood with their fellow mercenaries

I’m with Joey: Keep the love off the field

have you ever answered jimbo when you meant to answer insider?

“Jack de Belin, charged with rape, has allowed his lawyers to argue that the NRL didn’t educate him about violence against women. For a grown man to consider this a viable defence is unconscionable.”
there is a lot more to his defence than this headline from the tabloids. you are referring to his case against the NRL , this was not used in his criminal case

the thing about bankwest is that its the right size and right price. 30,000 and half the cost of rebuilding the SFS

Look how happy rugby league is

The Des-surrection of Manly

wow, nice response. you are on the inside of something , but you might be the only one

The Des-surrection of Manly

Manly have not been playing with heart in last few years? Footy is a business and stalwarts are needed to be cut at times.
