Yeah Murdoch and Bolt are big players in the IPA and some of those policies in the list of 75 just scream either Bolt or Murdoch specifically. Not that I necessarily disagree with the ones that do, mind you. Murdoch gave a great speech at the 70th anniversary dinner.
Do you think JH will reside at Admiralty House or Yarralumla?
And also, what are your views on this article? : Sport and betting have always been teammates
My opinion, and it is definitive so the discussion can move on, is that Chris Berg is as dumb as dog **** and a stupid ****. The entire IPA are stupid ****s. There isn't a brain between them.
Always knew Burgey and PEWS were the same person.
He is as thick as whipped **** though. Haven't you heard him speak?
Anyway, my tailor is here with my new suit.
More of this anon.
What are you talking about? I wanted to know what PEWS' opinion is on Berg's specific view regarding sport considering his post about sport and how he disagrees with the IPA view on sport just being another industry.
Ftr I have heard Berg speak - http://www.aiia.asn.au/nsw-events/ev...o-conservative
robots have brains:
Oh man, this ****ing suit. Sooooooo good.
I read that article the other day. It's an interesting one for me, and I can see why you asked me about it. I'm an IPA member who openly disagrees with their stance on sport however I'm also someone who makes a consistent profit on sports betting. I certainly agree with parts of that article, but I don't really agree with the rationale it uses at all. The reason people have no right to complain about Tom Waterhouse ads isn't that sport is an industry like any other; it's that sports betting is an industry like any other. Industry has to work around the intrinsically tribal and romantic nature of each sport; not the other way around as the IPA claims, but the sports betting industry as a whole has IMO done a great job of that.
