Third party booking agencies for flights are a nightmare if something goes wrong or you want to change something. Better off paying a bit more and book directly and keep all your rights. I have used some of the bigger companies like expedia before, but I have always felt uncomfortable even up to checking into the flight as to whether I will actually have my ticket.
Original carrier canceled the second leg and aren't doing those flights at all anymore. Now been told doing it's with a different carrier that we wouldn't have used lots of wasted time on hold

Yeah I have to agree with this, although I’m still a sucker for it, even if it’s only a saving of like $20-30.

Only ever had one issue which was some defunct site when I was younger. That was an international flight and they double debited the total cost from my credit card (something around $1500), which meant I had no spending money at all for a few days in Berlin and had to borrow money off someone I was staying with just to get to my next destination

The site blamed the airline, the airline blamed the credit card company, and so on. Adding another link in the chain makes accountability even more difficult

Also you usually can’t change your booking afterwards (eg add luggage, choose seats, etc)
The mrs booked it and now I'm stuck trying to get the money back

I don't think anyone's claiming to be perfect.

How do you suggest they protest against a day they consider disrespectful, while remaining balanced and avoiding divisiveness?
Need to put the horse before the cart

Maybe they consider it disrespectful because they’ve been told over and over again (that it’s disrespectful) by an intentionally undermining third party...??

Australian Media (and politics) needs to be owned and loyal to Australia only, and not other “States” or in their lobbyist pockets etc

That would be a start
Unfortunately I think until then, there will be disharmony
But everyone is still free (baring wrongthink) to question the accepted (hijacked) and IMO unhelpful narrative

ahaha apparently Bev from the Bev show has been chatting up some underage girls. TBF I thought he was 15.
If we can't trust Bev, makes you wonder who you can trust.

Speaking of that kind of thing, apparently there is a new Michael Jackson documentary that is pretty disturbing called "Leaving Neverland". Will supposedly air on HBO early this year

The plan seems to be to act like AFLX is a really big deal and hope enough idiots will believe it.
The draft might get a bit of interest seeing as it's the first one but it only takes about 2 minutes of actually watching the game to realise it's boring as batshit. I can't imagine anyone actually enjoying watching.
I'd rather watch single person synchronised swimming than a game of AFLX.

TBF i haven't seen much. just saw a couple screen shots. If it's true then he deserves it. Its disgusting to see a 21 year old picking up me teens.


Was he that kid that they cut to at the BBL?
Yes.

In my few years of being an adult, i've learnt that anyone can be disturbing. Ted Bundy is a perfect example.

Sounds like he’s admitted his mistake, and having dealt with suicidal kids due to cyber bullying - no, he doesn’t deserve it at all.

Jesus, this is just too much. There’s nothing more condescending than telling a historically oppressed minority they don’t actually feel the way they feel.

“Listen up, aboriginal people! You don’t actually consider the arrival of European settlers to be an act of aggression and the beginning of decades of discrimination and mistreatment! You’ve merely been conditioned to think that way by intentionally undermining third parties. Who have done so for the nefarious purpose of ... getting a new public holiday? Hang on, this is getting a bit fuzzy here ... I had it, just a sec...”

That was quite a ride. Do we know which of our players will be available for drafting in the AFLX pool?
