After all, this IS Putin that we are talking about. Gamecock October 10, 2015 at 12:49 pm ‘raising taxes on the rich’ That’ll get the economy going! DocBud October 10, 2015 at 1:44 pm Raising taxes on the rich could attract a bullet to the back of the head if it includes the super rich. There is competition for laugh of the day, that backstabbing, power hungry, stinking commie, poor excuse for a human bean Malcolm Turncoat got laughed and booed at the NSW Liberal Party State Council. http://blogs.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/timblair/index.php/dailytelegraph/comments/the_great_communicator/ Turnbull is a weapons grade git. PF October 10, 2015 at 2:49 pm DocBud Re the back stabbing commie, the climate change comment from Simple Simon directly below the video is interesting. DocBud October 10, 2015 at 3:12 pm It is indeed, PF. Another potential contender for laugh of the day: Samoa 23 Scotland 16 with Ryan Wilson in sin bin. Matthew L October 10, 2015 at 7:06 pm Apparently a cracker of a game. Shame it wasn’t on telly here, I could only watch Wales getting ground into the turf. PF October 10, 2015 at 7:32 pm “ground into the turf” I saw it as two good sides and some bad decisions from Wales. Given how very good the Aus defence was, and how tight, “just take the bloody points”, no matter vs 14 or 13 (at least that’s what I was yelling at the screen)… If vs 13 you’ll be back down there quickly enough to take some more… There’s also that factor that when the defence know you are going to push for a try they are a tad more relaxed about conceding penalties… Crap decisions from Wales. Now it’s the hard road, Boks and AB’s, yeah right! PF October 10, 2015 at 7:39 pm Oh, and not playing quick ball from your own scrum (and when you are struggling in the scrum) versus 13 with two extra outside..!? Unbelievable! PF October 10, 2015 at 7:59 pm One more, then I’m gone! As a result, Dan Biggar didn’t even get a kick at goal in the second half… Matthew L October 10, 2015 at 8:08 pm Oh, I didn’t mean ground into the turf as a euphemism for being thrashed. I meant it literally – that Australian defence was just astonishing. I agree with your assessment, the Welsh played very well. I was gutted that they didn’t manage to squeeze a try out of it. Surreptitious Evil October 10, 2015 at 9:01 pm “Putin hasn’t ruled out running the 2018 vote.” Fixed that for you. diogenes October 11, 2015 at 12:48 am Wales could not craft a score against 13. Lmao. And I was rooting for Samoa as well. sackcloth and ashes October 13, 2015 at 5:23 pm ‘I could only watch Wales getting ground into the turf’. And I got to watch England ignominiously fail to qualify for the quarter-finals, the first RWC host to do so in the tournament’s history. I know which one of us is happier 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
