Not having a go, just laughing at this mob. You know the difference don't you? Maybe not (if you're Port).

When did Port last beat Bombers by the way? All I know is I still haven't finished all the slabs of beer the Port mugs I know paid up in lost bets. :wink:

I was at the opening day of the Oktoberfest in 2017. It is a remarkable piss-up-fest. The complex is a huge showground with many beer booths each owned by a brewery and holding up to 5000 people each. Everyone in the booths is pissed to the eyeball drinking out of those huge steins'. Unless you pre purchase a ticket to the booth you have to queue for ages. Its not unusual to see vomiting people. ( Att: N5 1BH May have been Tottenham supporters there. :D )
He could have been snorting anything and who would know, The security to get in is many layered although I think it was to stop bombs getting in.

Who are the current basket weaving champions? It can't be England because Hawkesy hasn't mentioned it.

Port Adelaide has secured a five-year major sponsorship with Sanjeev Gupta — the multi-billionaire credited with saving Whyalla.
The British-based billionaire, who heads up the Gupta Family Group, turned the announcement into a community event with fans, players officials, board members, Premier Steven Marshall, other stakeholders involved in celebrations at Alberton on Saturday.
Gupta wouldn’t be drawn on how much he had agreed to tip into the club, but the deal is believed to worth millions of dollars considering he has now equal billing with Oak as a major sponsor of the club.
The GFG Alliance logo will grace Port’s jumpers this year.
Gupta, whose company bought out the struggling Whyalla steel works, stressed it was a personal investment rather than a corporate sponsorship — therefore it was his personal business how much cash he will invest in the club.


A couple of interesting quotes,

This sounds like something dodgy or strings attached sponsorship.
Government Funded Grant (GFG) not Gupta Family Group

Will PM for now - am a bit reluctant to make something like this "public" given it's about private lives (yet).

Newly-formed watchdog Sports Integrity Australia (SIA) wants information from the AFL on failed drug tests, amid fears that illicit substance use by players is increasing the risk of match-fixing.

Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority chief David Sharpe told the Herald Sun that criminals are increasingly preying on players throughout sport to get inside information on games.

Players using drugs like cocaine, ice and ecstasy could be compromised by criminals, who either supplied the drugs or witnessed them being used, and forced to provide inside betting information.

Threats could be made against players to provide intelligence on team line-ups, injuries and game plans. In a worst-case scenario, players may be forced to help influence the outcome of games.

“It’s definitely a threat. How many athletes do you see that are frequenting nightclubs and getting free drinks and getting themselves into trouble?" Sharpe told the Herald Sun.

“Or bikies are walking up to them, taking photos with them and hanging around them?

“We are talking about criminals here. People who sell drugs like cocaine are not good people

SIA would not ask for the names of players who tested positive under the AFL's controversial three-strikes drug policy, said Sharpe, who is being considered as the head of SIA.

The information would be used to investigate patterns of behaviour.

Sharpe said he expected cooperation across all major Australian sports.

AFL club presidents Jeff Kennett and Peter Gordon have slammed the AFL’s illicit drugs policy, saying clubs deserve the right to know who’s using substances within their club.

Gordon told the Herald Sun that he feels clubs should know whether players were “repetitively breaking the law by using illicit substances” or “grooming” younger teammates into the life.


“If there was a player on any club’s list that was doing that, then I would want the right to sack them,” Gordon told the Herald Sun.

“It’s wrong for anyone to focus on the number of players that any particular club may be suspected or alleged to have had in relation to this issue, because the clubs have no say, no power and no control over this policy.

“This current illicit drugs policy is a deal cut between the AFL, as the regulator of the competition, and the AFLPA, as the players’ union … and the results of it are there for everyone to see.

“I have complained, both publicly and privately to the AFL commission, that it puts the clubs, as employers, in an invidious position.

“We have a duty of care to protect the interests of our players — and not just those who may be using — but those who may be coming to the club for the first time and may be put in harm’s way by being groomed or facilitated into social contact with other players who are users.”

Kennett reaffirmed this, saying clubs should know and be able to enforce the law within their club.

“As president, I am still not informed about those who have had strikes — and I find that to be totally hypocritical and self-defeating,” Kennett told the Herald Sun.

“If the AFL has a policy on drugs it should be enforceable and anyone who voluntarily puts their hand up to be a league player … should be prepared for the consequences.”

Former St Kilda coach Grant Thomas told SEN Breakfast he feels drug use was “rife” in the AFL during his time at the Saints and has only gotten worse since.
