Hi folks,

There's a new episode online now. This week, we drill down on another three AFL clubs' chances in 2021. There's some loquacious 'Life Hacks', a vigorous 'Vinyl & Video' goes back to 2004, and we roar home with a good ol' rant! Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers,
Rohan

Is this an appropriate thread to remain on BigFooty?

Is Footyology a footy show or an Avenue for the political and social intolerances of Rohan ?

What the world needs now is peace and a settled environment. Not hatred and vindictiveness.

Oh, hi Bruce. Still sulking about my "lefty" politics are we? Appears so. This is the second time you've bobbed up here just to have a sook about it. Why don't you have a listen to Finey's rant on the latest episode, just out of interest. He had a huge crack at Dan Andrews and the State Government in his rant, certainly equal to anything I've dished out. Will that be too "vindictive" or "hateful" for you, I wonder? Of course it won't, because he's probably saying something you agree with.

Yes, Footyology is a footy show, but for some time now (obviously more so in the off-season) we've talked about a lot of stuff other than football as well. Music, movies, TV, and yes, occasionally, if it's topical, politics. No one's forcing you to listen to one second of it. Bag me all you like on here. (Which now I've bothered to check a few of your posts, I see you do frequently). If it's therapeutic for you, go right ahead, glad I can help.

But plenty of people (our listener numbers keep going up) seem to enjoy the show enough. So how about letting them do that, allow me to let them know when there's a new episode up, which is all this thread has ever been, and stop acting like a petulant little kid because you don't like someone else's opinions? Really mate, get a new hobby will you, this one is tiresome.

Cheers,
Rohan

Of the all the non-footy episodes RoCo and Finey have put out, this weeks one was up there with the best :thumbsu:

Keep up the good work, RoCo...for the sake of your ticker and blood pressure, the footy cannot come along soon enough!

Hi guys,

A new episode has just gone up, and this one is packed to bursting point! We talk Eddie McGuire, Collingwood and racism, there's retirement and injury talk, a wrap of AFLW Round one, three more clubs' seasons previewed, plus Life Hacks, The Rant-Off, and Vinyl And Video this week goes back to 2010. Fasten your seatbelts!

Cheers,
Rohan

I was at the Dogs vs St Kilda AFLW game last Friday, and wondered what passionate Sainter and AFLW follower Finey would say this week. Kudos to him for noting that St Kilda got 26 frees to 6, for no discernable reason, and won when they probably weren't the best team.

Haha. Rohan's grandmother was a communist who ran a commie book shop and spent time in Russia. It all makes sense now. :D It explains everything. It's not his fault, because he would've been brainwashed at a young age.

Yes, it was Mark Fine who said that, and all you could say in reply was, "well, I can't disagree with all of that", then just bagged Michael O'Brien as a worse alternative. Fairdinkum, you've called Trump, Tim Smith, Andrew Bolt and most of the Sky News presenters every name under the sun, but never once have I heard you criticize the worst person in Melbourne, Dan "I can't recall how I indirectly caused the death of 800 people" Andrews. Just to clarify, do you consider yourself not heavily politically biased?
As I said, it's not your fault, because you were indoctrinated as young child by granny.
Incidentally, until recently, I've voted Labour all my life.

Having said all that, I enjoy the podcast and will keep listening. :thumbsu:

Just to clarify, do you consider yourself not very heavily politically biased? LOL.

OK, couple of things. The stuff about my grandmother's influence isn't right. She lived in Perth, I've lived my entire life (bar 9 months when I was 3yo, in Melbourne). Have spent very little time with any of my relatives actually, they're all in WA. My parents were certainly politically active, but I can think for myself, you know. I've said before, my strongest beliefs are about social justice and equality. On economics I'm anything but a radical, which is why it makes me laugh when people (not saying you have here) tag me an "extreme leftist". I'm simply not. In fact, not sure how old you are, but back in the '70s, there were plenty of Liberal MPs and voters whose values weren't any different to mine.

Next, not looking to get into a political debate here lest poor old BruceTempany14 get all upset again, but while you're entitled to any view you like, the polls have consistently shown that Andrews is a lot more popular than you (or News Corp, obviously) would like. And I reckon even a fair proportion of those who don't like him or this State Government would still not prefer the Opposition led by Michael O'Brien or "Dim Tim" Smith. I mean, come on, I know plenty of Liberal voters and even they are embarrassed by that pair.

As for "biased", well, I've never hid my political allegiances. But not sure why I should to be honest. If I was reporting on politics for a newspaper or some such it would be a problem, but I don't. Sure, I offer commentary on politics on social media and on the podcast, but commentary IS opinion. It's straight news reporting which needs to be devoid of any preconceptions (and sadly often isn't). Anyway, I'd argue how are my prejudices politically any different to many of the political commentators in the media today (surely you don't need me to trot out the very lengthy list of political pundits at any Murdoch-owned outlet who basically push propaganda for the Liberal Party?)

So there you go. You ask, I answer. ;) And thanks (sincerely) for your support for the podcast, much appreciated.

Cheers,
Rohan

Thanks for your reply .

I don’t think Finey slagging off at Andrews validates your behaviour or balances the ledger . And you have no idea of my political views, only to say that overall I detest bullies like you and who won’t tolerate an alternate view . Your work on Twitter is abhorrent and must also be called out .
The fact is that you spew hatred and personal intolerance yet espouse a stance of being a Woke . You are actually the anthiphis of a Woke

You use BigFooty to attract people under the banner of “ footy” yet your program is full of political and social views ( be it left right commo fascist Marxist conservative etc I don’t care ). It is this perspective that disturbs me and why thus thread should never have been permitted .
Even sadder that 7 sycophants liked your reply . How desperate to get a like from a c grade social commentR ( but your footy stuff is A grade ).
I think you need to grow up and learn to take feedback .

And if I did do , so what ? Is it not ok to have an alternate view ? You have zero knowledge of my social and political viewpoints . Zero. You may be surprised . What I do detest is attempts at thought control , bullying and abuse .

If you read my posts properly then reflect upon the ramblings in footyology you will indetify the issues that I have . Then go to Twitter and see the intolerance that spews out from the same person you may change your mind . For the record the footy related stuff , when it is actually discussed on the podcast is A grade IMO.

Your post suggests that you condone having a politically biased , naive,and hate filled podcast marketed through BigFooty.com? The BigFooty rules clearly articulate that there is to be no links provided to anything that is ,amongst other things , hateful ,abusive , and likely to offend. I would suggest the Mods enforce their own terms and conditions.

I thought BigFooty AFL pages werabout footy . Obviously some issues here under Australian Consumer Law s 18 or a 29 .

Move this thread out of AFL and place somewhere else on BigFooty.com. It has no place here .

Hi Rohan,

Simple solution for the Bruce's on the podcast.
How about a disclaimer inserted.
Along the lines of......

Warning: The following podcast may contain traces of nutty concepts like social justice and equality.

The views and opinions expressed on this podcast are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the alternative facts presented as "news" by after-dark cable TV dog whistlers employed by an evil octogenarian paymaster.

Footyology does not accept any responsibility for content discussed that leads to the neural malfunction of any of its listeners and respects the differing views of those for whom this disclaimer may have come too late.

Cheers.

Ok can you point to some examples where Rohan or Finey have been 'hateful, abusive or likely to offend'? I'm honestly curious what you're referring to

I expected you to come out with your guns blazing (at least little) like you do sometimes on Twitter, and since you haven't, I feel like a bit of a prick, so I've slightly toned down my previous post. :)
Thanks for the measure response.

Incidentally, since covid restrictions have eased, can you please ask Mark Fine and Mannix to get back into the studio for Ruck N Roll? :D I tweeted Hillier, but he didn't reply. It's hard work listening to them on the phone for an hour. I can't understand Fine sometimes. I gather Mannix gigging interstate, so that would make it difficult

Out of curiosity when was the last time you posted on this site about any topic other than RoCo? As others have said you could simply ignore his podcast and this thread.
For someone who is banging on about detesting thought control you seem pretty obsessed with shutting someone down purely for having an opposite poltical view to you.
