I see that by adding my comments at post 1279 above, about a politicised public service, as you have, you are seeking to suggest that I must be opposed to the Rudd appointment also.OMG haven’t we got Rudd as US ambassador how bad is that
Didn't he get stabbed in the back by his own mob, who then turned around n stabbed his replacement in the back n reinstated him just in time to get rolled by Heeeyyyy ABBOTT?Rudd not my cup of tea, but I don't see how his experience as a PM does other than help prepare him for such a role.
All true but that has nothing to do with whether former PM’s might reasonably be recruited to take up diplomatic posts.Didn't he get stabbed in the back by his own mob, who then turned around n stabbed his replacement in the back n reinstated him just in time to get rolled by Heeeyyyy ABBOTT?
Just another *smile* kicker pollie who got a premium brown nose job.
presuming Mini received more dollars for this year when he took over from Dimma. and therefore our soft-cap was all out of whack with Dimma not going the distance with his contract/ Mini taking more $, etc. to run the show after round 10? does anyone know if Mini was contracted as an assistant through to the end of 2024 when he signed his last assistant deal?There is no "and", nor is there a need for one.
Maybe no one else wants Mini Dimma it’s either join up with Dimma or dole queue7 news reporting that Mini is likely to join Dimma at the Gold Coast.
I think this is a mistake if he wants to be a senior coach one day.
Surely he would be better off being an assistant to someone else and experience another way of doing things.
Having his lips sewn to Dimma’s arsenal for another few years is wasting his time. I can see why Dimma would want him and knowing it’s not going to help Mini get a senior gig and increases the chances of him being with Dimma for another decade.
Imagine having a job where you could have an influence on setting an agenda to right the woes of a very dysfunctional and corrupt AFL.He's on here you know,SERIOUSLY .
Well that''s Victorian journo's at the moment for you.Imagine having a job where you could have an influence on setting an agenda to right the woes of a very dysfunctional and corrupt AFL.
You could write about myriad issues that plague modern football that any average fan can see and verify. Starting at the “fix”ture, the ARC, and moving along, hitting each one with passion and intensity.
Or, you could be John Ralph, or Barratt, or any one of the other junk jockeys serving out brain porridge to the masses. I mean who cares what you can regurgitate from the AFL teat. Spew is spew, we are drowning in spew.
If you are on here Mr Ralph, get good! Wake up and do something better. Become a real journalist, if such a thing still exists.
