I have spent a lot of time working with Indians, and many use the terms "veg" or "non-veg". So as an alternative to eating at chilli India one day we went for lunch to an Indonesian / Chinese place. All of the vegetarians ordered their meals as "not non-veg". That obviously confused the crap out of the waiter and they got food with meat. The owner refused to refund them. They probably never ate Chinese again.

And they reckoned the rice was shit.
East Asians can't Cook rice.
My old mans side of the family are Indian. Heaps of vegos in there. Buddhists and some Hindus don't like killing things to eat them but are happy to exploit them. Bhuddists will eat road kill too as the animal was already dead.

Always wanted to take one of those Buddhists l driving with some blackfellas to see what happens if they notice a roo.

He’s very lucky. Very very lucky.

Honestly believe he has such a long long way to go if he ever is going to make it professionally.

Hope his old man kicks the shit out of him
Are you guessing based on here or confident it's exactly who we think it is?

Assuming the circumstances are as reported regardless of 'who' this refers to, hope the victim will be ok and the perpetrator has it drummed (literally) into their head this is their first and final warning on this front.

Best to worst lists according to CD

NORTH MELBOURNE

Champion Data overall list rating: 6th

List rating for 2019: 8th

Player breakdown

- Elite: 3

- Above average: 7

- Average: 11

- Below average: 7

- Poor: 0

We say: As one of just three clubs with no poor players, Champion Data believes the Kangaroos have the talent to make finals. Converting talent into a winning formula isn’t always a sure thing, but this is a good start.

No poor players is a great legacy of Scotts' financial planning advice re. purchasing real estate during team meetings. Can't believe posters were bagging him.

Are you being sarcastic?
You might be missing the joke. You see, Champion Data rates players as elite, above average, average, below average, and poor. The word "poor" in this context, means of low standard as a footballer; poorly skilled, if you will. However, "poor" is a homograph in that it can also be defined as being of low socioeconomic status. Reference to private schools and Brad Scott's penchant for financial planning among footballers is thus, a joke based upon the aforementioned homograph.

There can be only one...
"Rhyce Shaw (senior coach, interim CEO, interim head of football, interim list manager, interim barista), Brady Rawlings (head of football), Glenn Luff (list manager) and Ben Amarfio (chief executive) enter their roles without previous experience, but this is far from an area of concern for Buckley."

Confident.

And agreed on all points. No margin for error now and will be hard to shake the shame of the behavior.

I don’t know or care about any football associations, but a warning seems an inadequate consequence.

Please don't misunderstand the sentiment here H2H. Was meaning that whatever consequence has been meted out should signal the last time this type of action ever occurs for that perpetrator.

It wasn't assessment of the grade of the consequence itself as apart from anything else I don't know what or who was involved.

Given that we are typically referred to as “underrated”, this Champion Data blurb is a positive development - I’d like to think. On the other hand, they’re are less excuses now - it’s time we started delivering. The fact that our forward line is seen as our weakest link could be viewed as a real plus. Players like BBB, Wood, Garner, Zurhaar, Thomas, Maj (when required), Higgins, Ziebell and, I expect, Will Walker are capable of troubling any defence.

Ben Brown's dearth of goal assists has North's forward line rated as #12. If only he was a bit more selfless. And obviously, nobody else of any value down at the pointy end.
Yet our forward line is possibly the only part of our team that I am satisfied with. Minimal changes required.

Champion Data is rubbish!
