It's weird that someone prepared to say such insulting things, becomes himself, so easily insulted.

It’s an interesting debate The GFC was a culmination of events, none of which would have occurred without Clinton’s initial Glass-Steagall repeal and then Alan Greenspan’s laissez faire approach and then, and then.

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

JOC needs a second playmaker, or he goes to custard. He operates with Hamish at the Reds

Simone could fulfill that role, but perhaps not out of the blocks in a Bledisloe.
I think Rennie will put Lolesio to 10 but with JOC still playing the senior role on attack.

That is quite hilarious. And it raises a question: who thinks Trump supporters are Nazis? Trump supporters or Trump supporter opposers?

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

Fair enough. I agree with those comments.

The breakdown is definitely a mess. One that Hanigan and Wright were meant to solve.
Perhaps we need to change the tactics. No one makes a break without letting potential support runners know in writing, first.

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

Toomua would be lucky to be ready in 2 weeks I reckon

Have to give Lolesio a go.

JOC turned into a headless chook there for a while. Very disturbing. Would be good to have a second playmaker.
