My knees think up is fine but down is bad.

What happens if there's no more A-League?

When I were a lad, we stayed in a liftless pensione in Rome and had to climb 269 stairs from the foyer to our room. We made sure we only went out once a day.

‘One dong’ is a bit presumptuous. And none of me secretly admires Robbie Fowler’s coaching, although he does do good gritted teeth.

What happens if there's no more A-League?

I had to go to a pharmacy this morning – it was unavoidable – and social distancing ain’t a thing where I live. About 10 people plus 5 staff, young and old, several obviously unwell, milling around the script counter. The only social distance I saw was people avoiding eye contact. I’m not sure what you have to tell people to get them to behave sensibly.

But for now, I should stop talking to yourself, or, you should stop talking to myself, or something like that – it’s very confusing.

Suspending interest on credit cards sounds like a great idea, a bit like suspending mortgage payments. Basically, yellow flagging aspects of capitalism for a period.

Did you see Jeff Bezos’ version of Mid’s idea? He suggested Amazon staff with unused sick leave could donate it to staff who have run out already. What a guy!

Infections seem to be spiking alarmingly so I think you might be right. We know a few doctors/specialists/nurses and they aren’t at all optimistic about how this will turn out. And you guys working in our hospitals and medical centres deserve a medal – already!

This will all come unstuck as soon as one player tests positive.

A-League and W-League seasons to continue without fans amid coronavirus outbreak

Charity is laudable but nowhere near as effective as government action can be. It’s so much harder for randomly supported charities to distribute money equitably or efficiently. And our government could borrow far more money for nothing at the moment anyway.

Things a gov could do? Like Italy, suspend home mortgage repayments. Or, bump up government support for renters. Or, pay young, low risk unemployed or underemployed people to do home deliveries in unused gov vehicles (gov depts will be in lockdown shortly I think). Just increasing Newstart and eliminating qualification periods would be a good start.

How are things currently where you work Fadida?

That’s a horrible situation you had Pacman. I’ve been wondering how many people in places like China, Iran and Italy have died in isolation with no contact allowed at the end with their families.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

Apparently the Chief Medical Officer is now recommending cancelling public events attended by over 500 people.

Disinfect the balls at half-time?

Morrison and Frydenberg are the Spinner and Paddlefoot of Oz politics. Sadly they have no Clutch Cargo to bale them out.

I won’t be going to the footy but I do hope Scotty does.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

I think you meant ‘mettle’. But, then again, Morrison might as well be a bronze statue for all the ingenuity he shows in a crisis.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

That’s why what governments do during the acute phase of an epidemic is so important. I’m pretty sure our current Federal government hasn’t got a clue what to do right now.

Me too Lionheart – I’m shelving my SFC membership for the time being.

Rick – do you have any idea why there has been so little public health advertising about this virus?

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

Fair enough – I guess you are one of those ‘quiet Australians’. Although…that didn’t stop you dumping hundreds of inflammatory words here.

Game Over: Why Craig Foster's refugee campaign matters

I appreciate your concerns Waz, but the critical issue is to spread out the hit of this epidemic.

Does anyone want our hospitals so overloaded they have ration treatment based on age and general health condition?

Imagine the societal distress if we get to the point where doctors have to tell families they don’t have enough ventilators to treat your grandad or your mum or your sister who has asthma. Italy is already at that point.

AG

South Korea has done much more widespread testing for COVID-19 than other countries. So they have possibly the best handle on death rates for COVID-19.

The South Korean death rate for COVID-19 is currently about 7 times the typical death rate for flu. That could be an underestimate too – there are reports of people apparently recovering and then becoming very ill again.

This is a big one and as Fadida says it’s astounding that major events have not been cancelled.

How will the A-League weather the coronavirus storm?

I’d rather you told us. Go on – get it off your chest.

Insult – can you tell me a little about ‘social engineering and climate blame’? I’m unsure what that means.

Good article. Australia’s treatment of these refugees is disgraceful.

Even you Waz would have to give a lot of credit to de Marigny for the Roar’s performance. WSW played a kind of 5-2-3 leaving acres of space for the Roar to muck around in. The Roar were good but WSW made them look a lot better than they usually are.
