    When it bombs and doesn't happen again next year it will give them a convenient out to say that they couldn't get any other team to go over.

    I'm curious, how is this China thing Ports to control?

    Doesn't the AFL do the programming? Won't the AFL decide which opponent Port play, not Port? And given the AFL own the Gold Coast, why wouldn't the AFL want their child benfiting from this? And one last question, if the AFL really wants this to be a success, they will want the team that the Chinese know and can relate to playing.

    I thought I was finished but one more, Kochie when asked if there will be another game next year said "there has to be, there just has to be" basically it's not your call Subrise presenter.

    I think this does confirm that Port are shitting their dacks at the thought of all the Chinese backing the team from that city they all visit, wearing their national colors and sponsored by Hauwei.

    Why worry? The Chinese are going to ignore both teams equally.

    Should I be watching a pointless T20I match, or a pointless pre-season AFL match?

    Poort arent paying for it, they don't know if there's going to be a next year, and if there is it won't be their call on how it's run

    Kochie is playing a little hard with his Koch

    Let's play them there next time. Their home Showdown so we'll wear our new away strip, which is minus the navy

    I posted this in the bey, but what I suspect is that Port have the home team strip rights and GC have the away team strip rights, and as far as I understand the home team can't dictate what the away team wears, that's up to the AFL.

    And the AFL will see $$$ at the prospect of GC playing in Chinese colors.

    Perhaps a little less table tennis and a little more due diligence on contracts.

    Your right, my empathy is reseved for the hundreds of thousands of people who have none of the privelage, family support, copious amounts of money and whatever else he enjoys (example - the amount of chances he gets to **** up compared to the average joe or betty who are mentallly ill, and the types of help and rehab he can get to because he is famous). So no I think i will skip Hackett and Cousins and the like, and save my empathy for those i feel need or warrant it. If your empathetic towards him thats cool, but not for me.
