Australian Gossip

Anyone watch AFL? Or understand what is going on with Tom Morris? He got into some kind of argument with the coach of the Western Bulldogs and was defended by his blue tick journalistic comrades.

by Anonymousreply 30June 24, 2022 10:48 AM

Today he has two video leaks.

The first is anti-Asian, anti-black, anti-woman and anti-gay.

The second is merely homophobic and misogynistic regarding his colleague Megan Barnard.

Seriously, “liquor licence”? In a voice message? How stupid would you have to be to leave evidence.

He sounds… nice. Australian media is so incestuous.

A related question: what’s a “flog”? I only hear it on Victorian social media.

All the Ian Thorpe threads have been closed so I'll leave this unexplained mystery here—

He was small (compared to Big Ian) but nicely proportioned. There's a lovely picture of him reclining on a shiny floor at R6—

The article feels the need to explain that HIV is "a serious illness that attacks the immune system". Do millennials seriously know absolutely nothing?

Too many of them know nothing. My taxes have paid for AIDS sex education for 30 YEARS.

But I know an 24 year old idiot-millennial who goes around boasting that he is "HIV Positive Undetectable" as if he needs to be congratulated for it.

It will be interesting to see what comes out. Sad any which way. But he wasn't short at all (and there isnt anything wrong with that either) its just that Ian thorpe is litterally 200cms tall, so anyone looks 'short' next to him.

by Anonymousreply 8May 13, 2022 6:35 AM

Ian is such a giant

(I almost put that verb in the past tense because he's definitely retired from public life)

Brittany Higgins rape trial is delayed due to MORON Lisa Wilkinson’s Logies speech.

What for? He's just a ball-kicker, isn't he?

Not to be a snob, but Lisa Wilkinson’s behaviour is what you get when the woman most famous for editing Dolly magazine at age 21 pretends to be a journalist.

No, that woman is most famous for having a dislocated jaw and a very WIDE head.

I don't really watch AFL that often, but it's been a fixture of my entire life (being from southern Australia and having a dad who played). I do find a lot of the men attractive with probably the best bodies sport can create. I had a boyfriend a few years back who would sometimes masturbate me on a Saturday afternoon while we watched the players on TV.

I’m loving this thread keep it going! It’s a nice break from 70 year old gay men chatting endlessly about New York and Los Angeles.

Leesha Wilkinson really put her horse hoof into her stupid mouth.

For someone who supposedly supports Brittany Higgins, Leesha has done nothing but unnecessarily extended the pain that Brittany is going through.

Silly woman doesn't know the difference between rape and ALLEGED rape.

Her brand of gotcher Tabloid TV ratings is based on Emotion rather Facts.

If Perkins was 20 years younger and a woman I would certainly consider his opinions but he a straight old male.

by Anonymousreply 22June 23, 2022 2:09 PM

Kieren Perkins was the biggest twat in 1990s swimming. I laughed so hard when he was effortlessly defeated by pill popping Grant Hackett in Sydney.

It ought to be rare to hate people on polar opposite sides of the same argument - Katherine Deves because she is evil and Peter Fitzsimons because he’s obnoxious - but that’s the Australian political/media landscape for you.

by Anonymousreply 24June 23, 2022 2:37 PM

I don’t tend to watch morning TV - as an Xennial I am entering my Classic FM years - but Tony Armstrong is the only reason to do so. He’s barrels of fun.

Articles in the the 90s, the noughties and teens, did the same thing. It's basic journalism. Twenty-somethings weren't around when AIDS first arrived, so how the fuck are they meant to know what it is, if it's somehow inappropriate to even explain it in an newspaper article???

Seriously, R6, what's your damage?

by Anonymousreply 26June 23, 2022 3:13 PM

It isn't inappropriate to explain it, I'd just have hoped it was redundant because HIV/AIDS is basic knowledge. Newspapers don't feel the need to explain what WWII was every time they allude to it, even though most people alive today were born after it happened. However, if this is any indication perhaps they should.

by Anonymousreply 27June 23, 2022 3:31 PM

Millennials are entering their 40s and have kids in high school if not college.

R6 means Zoomers.

by Anonymousreply 28June 23, 2022 4:37 PM

The youngest millennials are still in their 20s.
