Re: POTUS-DONALD TRUMP-and U.S. Politics catch-all

Tbf I thought the idea was Trump would look in the lead now and when the postal votes came in Biden would piss it. I am seeing no talk of that Not sure how each state is doing it, seems it varies, but in many cases it appears those votes have already been counted. Yep, but not in the crucial states...

Re: Melbourne Cup 2020

Social media now in uproar with the clueless #NuptotheCup crowd seemingly convinced a horse or two dies in every race. And recent history of the Melbourne Cup presents ....

Re: Bled III: Aus v NZ: MATCH THREAD: Sydney 31st Oct

The downward pressure occurred when his chest hit the ball, but that was after his hand hit it and so therefore a knock on first.
My ruling - red card because Dane Cole is a plum.
Also, red card to Nick White for being outrun but a tight forward.
