    Yes, I would say this is more about the fiscal largesse they might expect from a government than any real concern for our fellow aboriginal citizens.

  2. Buccaneer says:

    How long before Indigenous bodies sponsor sporting codes in a quid pro quo?

    Grifters gotta grift. Simple calculation really. You want government to pay for your stadium? Don’t rock the boat.

    Honestly, though, that’s probably not the primary motivation for these virtue signaling cretins. Once proudly masculine sports administrations have been captured by woke buffoons. Even the lessons from previous inquiries into ‘First Nation’ players hasn’t quelled their ravenous desire to be seen as ‘progressive’ heroes.

    For example, how could Hawthorn be so stupid to employ an Aboriginal activist to conduct a “welfare check” of past Aboriginal players? What did they think would happen? Especially now that we live in a time where Aboriginal claims cannot, under any circumstances, be questioned. The ‘Eddie Betts’ standard’ is now universally applied i.e. “If [an Aborgine] says it’s racism, then it’s racism. End of story.”

    It will be a long way back from this level of craven stupidity.

    Agree with Jupes but I don’t think there is anyway back.Once the left has captured something it’s finished.

    This is exactly what local sportsball needs, people standing around the club rooms with a gut full of piss talking about race politics

    How could the ADF be so stupid to employ a wymmyns activist to conduct a “welfare check” of Defence’s treatment of women, and it’s culture? What did they think would happen?

    We live in stupid times.

  7. Lee says:

    To be expected from leftist sporting bodies like the GayFL and Cricket Australia, which can’t wank themselves quick enough over woke causes.

  8. Roger W says:

    BJ, they knew what would happen. They got the result they wanted.
    Never make the mistake of thinking this about truth. It is about, in the case of the ADF, undermining the fighting capacity of the army and, more generally, undermining our society and culture.

  9. A reader says:

    As a member of one of these organisations, I have four questions:
    1. Why does my sport have any political opinions?
    2. What consultation was done with members of said organisation to determine if the organisation should have a position in the first place on this issue, let alone what that position is?
    3. What evidence is there of my sport actively working against reconciliation OR providing inequality that they feel this statement rectifies?
    4. If the board was aware of this alleged inequality in my sport, why haven’t they all resigned for not doing something about it other than this piece of grandstanding?

    If the referendum fails, I’ll be curious to know how, despite having on its side the Federal Government and most State governments, the Yartz, most of the media, all the sporting codes (and the AOC), all the luvvies, QANTAS, Shaquille O’Neill, etc. etc., it was somehow defeated singlehandedly by…Peter Dutton.

  11. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Hopefully the land councils will now slap claims on their playing fields and require compensation to be paid by the associations.

    Albo….the left in general….has never been too bright……

    OK, so let’s say I (that’s ME personally) pay someone to “be my friend in public”. Well probably they’ll take the dough and pretend to be my friend in public. However they will not actually like me or be my friend. Onlookers will also find me laughably stupid having to pay for friends.

    And here we are. Albo has 20 new CEO besties who probably think he’s a tool. The staff of the 20 besties are going along with the CEOs in public, and also thinking they are F’Wits. And come the referendum when it all collapses in total fiasco, Albo and Co will be seriously wondering how come they couldn’t buy the result they wanted.

    I suppose what I’m saying is that the secret ballot was designed to thwart exactly this problem……”The secret ballot, also known as the Australian ballot,[1] is a voting method in which a voter’s identity in an election or a referendum is anonymous. This forestalls attempts to influence the voter by intimidation, blackmailing, and potential vote buying.”

    So, the left are dumbf’cks. What else is new?

    BTW: The referendum will need to become a mail-in ballot so’s the left can rort it: watch this space.

    Easy to understand why they went with YES .. most Oz sports are run like Sunday park footie operations involving lotza freebies, upgrades and largesse spread around the top echelons .. most of this funded by tax payer “grants” so solidarity with the supplier is compulsory ……..
