I wouldn't normally quote myself, but I have a point to make.I'd love to know what the people who were offended by this think of the Stars promoting tomorrows game as "Aussie Broadband Day".
No, you don't.You've got the national broadcaster now referring to it exclusively as Invasion Day. If the feds had any balls they'd strip the ABC's funding and put it towards Aboriginal education.
(I note the useless campaigners didn't even put out a Cricket Book this summer.)
Yes, they recanted. Ita must've returned from holidays.No, you don't.
In almost all facets the ABC referred to Australia Day. The all-purpose, default, use was and is Australia Day.
With specific reference to some activities it was, and is, Australia Day/Invasion Day or Invasion Day. A few politicians and The Australian massively, seemingly deliberately, misrepresented the ABC's position based on one online article where Australia Day/Invasion Day was used. Even in that instance, Invasion Day was not used "exclusively".
ABC buckles after ‘Invasion Day’ controversy (paywalled)The ABC has removed references to Australia Day as “Invasion Day” from a story posted at the weekend after criticism from Communications Minister Paul Fletcher and others.
The ABC’s guide to Australia Day activities taking place around the country now only refers to “Invasion Day” in the fourth sentence – with changes to the headline and a number of paragraphs.
The ABC, in a statement, said its default terminology remained Australia Day but that it recognised and respected “that community members use other terms for the event, including ‘26 January’. ‘Invasion Day’ and ‘Survival Day’ … so our reporting and coverage reflect that”.
"from a story" that story was originally headlined with "Australia Day/Invasion Day", not exclusively Invasion Day
Yeah that was taken up by another poster. A word out of place on my part. Sue me."from a story" that story was originally headlined with "Australia Day/Invasion Day", not exclusively Invasion Day
Prior to any complaints, the ABC's policy was to use Australia Day as the default. That story did not stick solely with the default.
That’s a horrible comment, especially from a moderator, no matter what your views may be.Nothing says patriotism like fleeing democracy in your own country. Farmers over there get killed because for the most part they are terrible people with a long history of violence against blacks, they're targeted for a reason and it's mostly their own fault, you don't hear about white South African accountants or bank tellers being targeted, do you? Think about it ffs.
Do you expect much else from him? He posted this earlier in the threadThat’s a horrible comment, especially from a moderator, no matter what your views may be.
Basically, Gough is a sh*t person.Maybe we could stop jerking ourselves senseless about ANZAC Day too. My family were sixty years from setting foot on this rock when it happened why do we have to put up with all these idiots marching in memory of a great uncle who they never met and who was little more than a useful idiot to the powers that sent him there. At least Invasion Day represents some kind of military triumph, unlike Anzacs at least these guys weren't losers.

He called South African women being raped 'karma' in another thread.Your comments come across as worse than simply 'uncaring'.

That's hilarious (if true) coming from such a self-righteous individual.
He's one of the "good" ones remember guys.
It's true I assure you.
Protected species on here though from those up top.
Cares so much about changing the date he spent all day posting on BF instead of protesting with his Greenie mates, a pissant party supported by ten % of the flog population of Australia.
It's good that people are realising what a slimy piece of human garbage you are, GoughDisgraceful double standards Not a good look on the website having such a hateful person as moderator
Interesting article. It mentions that "just" 69K of 1.7m cricketers are indigenous, or 4.0%. The 2016 census put the overall ratio at 3.3%.
Wow, what a surprise. CA wanted Labor to win along with all their lefty mates.
Also so not a great surprise Barry Cassidy's son is Cricket Australia's diversity and inclusion manager
