    filter feeders?
    Looks like someone at The Herald is living in the past – or Carter just isn’t making an impression as Speaker….

    Strewth to 'power'...

    Does Mike Hosking think only men are qualified to talk about rugby league?
    You'd be forgiven for thinking that after a radio segment this morning which caused a brief walkout by Newstalk ZB newsreader Bernardine Oliver-Kerby from an otherwise all-male panel debating the future of the Warriors league franchise.
    Oliver-Kerby briefly walked out of the Mike Hosking Breakfast broadcast this morning after the controversial host declared it was "man's time" as he introduced a Warriors debate.

    Full respect to Oliver Bernadine-Kerby!
    What a snivelling toad Hosking is....

    Could someone check his 'use-by date'?

  • Hard News: Obscuring the News,

    Good old Barry Soper, he always under-delivers, he ends his highly-principled piece on the Chiefs and NZRFU’s misogyny with this advice:

    While they’re reflecting they should perhaps consult the dictionary and look up the word “sorry."

    Advice he should take himself, as he earlier asserts:

    It’s the principal that’s at issue here.

    A rookie mistake if ever I saw one…
    – ‘my pal the principal’ was always my aide-memoire.

    Unless he was talking about the investment in Rugby and male supremacy?

    Subs and proofreaders have always made writers look good, management does their ‘star writers’ no favours by taking away the safety nets during their high-wire work!

  • Field Theory: Not doing enough, in reply to izogi,

    difference between “unsubstantiated” and “contradicted”.

    I suspect the problem also lies with the apparent 'transubstantiation' that occurs when immature dickheads are elevated to Super Rugby franchises...

  • Speaker: Are we seeing the end of MSM,…, in reply to John Farrell,

    The Herald stays consistent.

    So they are not even using a basic spell-check program...

    I see a mention of a Standford University in today's Stuff pages...
