Federal Minister for Sport Bridget McKenzie has announced an immediate Super Duper Royal Commission into Australia’s horrific performance at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
It’s a FIFA World Cup year!
The Greatest Sporting Event on Earth is around 120 days away, and we’re sending the Australian squad for the fourth consecutive tournament after the hellish saga that was Asian qualifying.
There’s zero chance we win the tournament, but (despite all the naysaying) it really is remarkable that Australia made the tournament at all with the squad we have and the lack of support it receives.
The Melbourne Cup is upon us.
It is Australia’s Greatest Race (except most of us can’t remember who won last year), and it’s the race that stops the Nation (except for the 80% of the country who don’t get a public holiday).
This year I’ve decided that, apart from entering a casual $2 sweep among friends, I’m not going to bet on the Cup.

Now, I don’t have a problem with someone gambling within their means. It’s your money to (probably) lose.
But usually that’s gambling on the outcome of a footy match… or a cricket match… or a ball spinning on a roulette wheel…
The Melbourne Cup involves horses.
Remember when the USA used to be awesome?
They put men on the moon. The cured disease. They were cultural leaders. They were a moral beacon for the rest of the world to follow. They were led by the best and brightest. They flexed their military strength only when necessary, and enemies fled before the might of the US Armed Forces.
Not so much.
With Season 7 of Game of Thrones nearly upon us, it’s time to ask the obvious questions:
Mike or The Don has secured a Top-Secret interview with an anonymous member of the AFL’s “Laws of the Game” Committee to discuss the many controversies around recent AFL rule changes.
Full Disclosure: He was paid half a Nutella Donut and a small bottle of Sprite for the interview, which may or may not be entirely made up.
To protect his identity, we’ll call him “Barry McRuleFace”
So, Barry McRuleFace, thanks for joining us.
So you’ve probably heard the complaints about the rule changes?
You know that feeling you get when you’re talking to someone and they have food stuck to their teeth?
You can’t quite bring yourself to tell them, because you’re just hoping it’s obvious enough they’ll feel it themselves and fix it.
Now imagine it’s happening during a conversation with someone you clash with, someone you’re not friends with. Someone you really, truly dislike.
Part of you is reveling in their stupidity, their obvious lack of awareness, the fact that they look like an idiot… and yet another part of you just wants them to get the damn spinach off your teeth seriously dude how can you not feel that?!
