We have both Netflix and Foxtel Now. 90% of the time we watch Netflix and only the 13 yo daughter regularly watches Foxtel Now.  Also tested free trials of Stan, YouTube Red and Amazon Prime, but just didn’t watch them enough to keep paying.

It's funny but we are the exact opposite. The daughter watches Netflix mostly and we watch Foxtel. Costs me a bloody fortune but we seem pretty hooked on the Lifestyle shows and of course Fox Sports so don't see much of a way out at the present

considering the $5m has never been confirmed by any party (and was pretty much called a load of BS by bellamy himself), who knows?

whatever the final offer to bellamy is, it's worth every penny IMO, along with paying out bennett to move along...  the broncos can afford it.

it surely must be attractive to bellamy from a football standpoint, with cronk already gone and smith and slater not too far behind...  plenty of young talent at the broncos for him to wield his magic over...

it would also be a masterstroke by the broncos, when it comes to talk of the second team in brisbane...

I sure the Broncos will manage to fit it all under the NRL soft cap for football operations. They have been masters at third party arrangements for years in a one team one town set up. A second team in Brisbane would provide a good challenge to Broncos.

GVM and GCM are important however with an underslung tow bar design recreational vehicles should be more conscerned about rear axle loads, the towball mass and cargo loads are specifically located around the rear of the vehicle, as a result the rear axle loads are a multiple of ball mass due to Archimedes laws of leverage. A kilo of mass on the ball is not a kilo of axle load but a multiple of axle load, you cannot just use GVM as a guide to vehicle geometry and reckon that you just add the tow ball mass as a component of GVM.
Individual axle loads determine vehicle geometry and handling, and is the first testing done on a road side inspection, if you are not under your axle loads you do not even progress to G VM or GCM.
This is the fundamental miss understanding and least discussed fact of towing with a recreational vehicle, the overloading of rear axle loads and underliading as a result of front axle loads creates massive problems with vehicle control.
Urban myth of the ability of things like stiffened spring rates and air bags to correct this issue add to the confusion as do the fact that different vehicle design such as wagon versus dual cab versus sedan add to the confusion about which are better tow vehicles.
If you focus just on GVM however it more than likely that you will get it wrong, axle loads are king, and should always be foremost in your calculations when towing.
Cheers Mike 👍

With all of this evidence coming out royal commissions, senate inquiries, investigations and such these days, which all are proving over and over again how much consumers are getting shafted across the board, it must be a tough job keeping that fired up consumer watchdog under control and not ripping into those corporations that are not playing by the rules.....



ACCC watchdog ready to attack..


you assume it would be a REAL dog, not a fluffy stuffed one.

And what about streaming movies?

Bigpond movies is the only one I’ve found that actually has latest release movies, but the payment page glitches out heaps. Lately it’s been too much trouble and we just give up.

All other movie streaming sites are stuck in the old video store model, ie; latest release movies are 2 years old and the special of the week is Dirty Dancing or Gost. :(

Not interested in anything Fox, not interested in any series or tv shows.
Just want to legally watch the latest release movies as soon as they’re out of the cinemas.

Has anyone found a decent alternative to Bigpond Movies??

Why am I not so shocked?
Hence why I got rid of my Cherokee, new transmission, new tail shaft and multiple other issues from new. Hands down the worst car I have ever owned and I have owned quite a few!

Handed our notice to terminate our lease today. Real estate accepted it, so no advertising fees for us :D

I wonder if/when we will see vans with greater foldout/side out capacities like some of these concepts.

I have a slideout on each side of my trailer, RH has bed and storage lockers, LH has bed and outside kitchen in it, but you'll have to wait a bit longer for a photo cause I'm still working on them while my canvas work gets done
