 I am pretty sure every large employer I have ever had had a rule prohbitting gambling on company premise.  Rule wasn't always followed or enforced.   We knew the Superbowl squares and March madness brackets were not approved by corporate and we could get in trouble.  (Doubtful cause I only participated in ones my boss also was in)

Sports gambling is a massive problem in Australia, and the major players have got their hooks into the major codes with a lot of major sponsorship and prime time advertising.

It has got to the stage where a number of sports and media are dependent (dare I say addicted) to the cash. The closest we had to a fixing scandal was when an AFL umpire leaked out information about weekly votes for the MVP last year, which caused major waves at the time when there were "unusual" successful bets. It's relatively minor compared to the major betting scandals involving Cricket overseas, but it's a good motivator to try and lessen the influence and impact of gambling in Australian sport.

There's a lot of discomfort about where this is going, and there is a lot to be undone here - I think the NFL is doing the right thing tackling this early and making sure it doesn't get anywhere near as bad as the situation here.

Also, good Sci-Fi is a reflection on the human condition.  Like District 9 mirrored Apartheid camps in South Africa

District 9 also mirrors something a lot more recent than Apartheid camps in South Africa - it was a nod to the plight of refugees fleeing war zones to other countries, and being locked up in conditions that are in some cases even worse than prisons. Governments actively dehumanize them to justify the shocking mistreatment - all for the sake of saving a dollar, and as a deterrent to others (so they hopefully go somewhere else). It's still happening now.

War is bad enough, but this is also an absolute shit-stain on humanity.

It feels like a strange situation where Buffalo needs to keep our offense off the field to win... we can score points and do it real quick, and often; last week our OL was a giant wrecking ball, and Achane looked like the second coming of Jay Ajayi.

Our defense needs to stop the run, and contain Allen between the tackles and force him to throw quickly - if we do that (and our special teams doesn't have another meltdown or two) then I reckon we will own them. We do that, and we have the division at our feet, and just need to worry about KC for the rest of the year! Big goals, but after last week, I'm beginning to think in the immortal words of the great George Allen: "The future is now."

Miami 37
Buffalo 17

I've spent much of my life as a live performance junkie. Pink Floyd (minus Roger) was possibly the most enjoyable, but tons of great shows...

I believe Hugh Anthony Cregg III said it best....."the heart of rock and roll, heart of rock and roll is still beating"

One of those fluke awesome performances... I was sitting in a small piano bar in London in 1984, and Huey came in, sat at the keys, and played for about a half hour. Material that I had never heard before, and I was a big fan of his recently released "Sports" album.

Iron Maiden and Tesla still put on a great show live as of a few years ago. George Lynch still plays good, but Don Dokken's voice is shot. Yngwie Malmsteen is Yngwie Malmsteen, but still a great show. Joe Satriani is great. I want to hit the Monsters of Rock Cruise before I die. Lots of alcohol, music, and chicks. Takes me back to '87 LMFAO....
