Blah-Blah Bar / Meatloaf Dead..
Last post by townsendcalling -
I know he copped a bad rap after the Grand Final fiasco, but Bat Out Of Hell is still one of the all time great albums, and his tour of Australia on the strength of that album was bloody good!  The Meat is dead , but the music will definitely live on!!

There were a lot of naysayers when Jones announced his position, "It could only happen at Carlton" type arguments and fingerpointing.

But there will be plenty of others they are just not making it into the public arena yet, Jones was the first he won't be the last!
"It could only happen at.....[insert team here]"
We just happened to be the first and/or perhaps the biggest name.

As an aside, we can never get our train completely back on the tracks without the odd self-imposed derailing. Salary cap, board challenges, sacked coaches, brownlow shenanigans, sacked coaches....etc

Jack Darling is an anti-vaxxer and has been banned from the club until he gets the jab.

It's a long bow to assert some connection. Djoker was opposing it effectively asserting Vucic was a pig with his head in the Rio Tinto trough, yet Vucic was the one going into bat for Djoker even after that Rio Tinto argy bargy!

What it says to me is that Djoker is very good at reading the room, and it may well be that his followers are both anti-vax and anti-corporate/commercial. Ditto Vucic!

Even so this mining issue is years old, and even Djoker back in December 2021 was a very late comer to the debate, the decision was basically already made but still under the appeals process!

The timing of the announcement might be political, but the resolution to block mining has been on the cards for several years, it's not new, even before the pandemic formal opposition started in 2019 just after Rio Tinto applied.

fwiw, I believe mining had not even started, if it got through the political / legal process it was slated to begin in 2023.

Serbia has been trying to get one of the big global mining companies to develop the site since about 2002.

I suppose the media and some political groups want you to think it's because of Djoker, but there is no connection.
