Misc 061013

The Queensland Roar looked pretty good last night, but Tom Willis should not be goalie. And it's not just his creepy resemblance to Tom Cruise. He just doesn't inspire confidence. And it's not just because he fumbled the ball into the path of an attacker with less than a minute gone, it's that he appears likely to do this often. Maybe I'm judging him unfairly in comparison to Liam Reddy who has impressed me with the way he dives into the fray; and he's got the best hands in the league statistically.

Another meaningless opinion poll came out today. Apparently 7 out of 10 people think Howard will win the next election. That's all well and good, but firstly, what people think is going to happen isn't worth anything and secondly, we don't have a presidential election system. So this survey is even less meanful than the "preferred Prime Minister" stuff. I don't think that trailing in the preferred PM polls has ever stopped anyone whose party won more seats from becoming Prime Minister.

And here's some stuff from September 25 - lost in drafts again:

Dog Bites Man: The Chamber of Commerce and Industry say that any Labor changes to IR Laws will be bad for Australia. Well, they would say that, wouldn't they?

Iraqi Govt removes Saddam trial judge: Iraq's Shiite-led Cabinet has removed the chief judge in the genocide trial of Saddam Hussein, accusing him of being biased towards the defendant. - They only want judges biased against the defendant.

Argentines don't like Hewitt says Nalbandian: Don't worry, David. Australians don't either.
