I'd be surprised if the traffic matched what they would have gotten from Facebook.
I guess so, I know I'd rarely if ever actually click on news.com articles or whoever that would pop up on FB, but now if I want to read the news I actually have to go to a news site. And in fairness I usually sit with the AFR open in the background most days so I do that already. Alternatively like was suggested earlier you can just use other platforms like Twitter.

Sometimes clickbait gets me.

Anyone else an NBA fan ?

I think Giannis aka the Greek Freak is really overrated, despite being coached by a bum and not great supporting cast.

Helps when people do the right thing. Had they have increased the number of exposure sites would they go back into lockdown?

“One member of the household, who was not at the Holiday Inn, was considered a secondary contact, and had been isolating with the family … all have been quarantined at home during their infectious periods.”

He said interviews were continuing today with the family.

“We thank the family for ... being isolated throughout their entire infectious period” Mr Foley said.

Yeah I don't think he'll win a title as the main man. Could be wrong if he went somewhere with a bit more support. But I just see the regular season hype so easily stopped in finals

He is probably not worth that contract he signed. $45M a year, wow.

North American sports contracts are crazy. The other day the San Diego Padres signed one of their young players, Fernando Tatis Jr, to a 14 year, $340M contract. His 14 year contract comes to an end one year before Bobby Bonilla’s contracts with the New York Mets ends. Bobby Bonilla retired in 2001 lol.

I'm a long time Chicago White Sox fan and I remember them trading Tatis for James ******* Shields who was well past his prime at that point, what a god awful trade that was.

Holy sh*t yeah. One of the worst trades there has ever been. The White Sox have built such a good young roster than still having Tatis Jr would have been ridiculous.

He is worth more like all the NBA superstars.
