News flash: last person finally gets out of Leichhardt Oval

There’s a rumour going round that the last fan has finally left Leichhardt Oval after Sunday’s match against the Sharks. The fact that it can take hours to leave after a game at the inner city venue seems to have escaped those who indulged in an orgy of praise before, during and after the 25-8 defeat of the Wests Tigers.

Yes, yes, our bid for an A-League licence is not over the line yet. But so many factors point to only one result: Macarthur and outer South West Sydney having their very own professional football team in the national soccer competition.

It’s a merger at first, but the takeover is not far off

The merger of Channel Nine with Fairfax Media announced this morning has lit up Twitter and other social media sites. Mostly it’s Fairfax print journos worrying about their future, and who could blame them. It is ironic they’ve expressed their frustrations on social media platforms – one of the mainRead more »

Welcome to the age of infinite irritations

Other than your winter electricity bill what else would you like to see the back off? We could probably list 50 things that give us the heebie-jeebies. Which would make us a world class whinger or simply a savvy modern consumer, depending on your point of view. The thing isRead more »
