  • One of our great actors/artists - may he rest in peace 

  • A legend, has left legacy all over the World.

    And a true gentleman without a bad word for anyone.

    Paved the way for many Indigenous actors, dancers,literacy pundits and educator on the true Australian cultural history.

    Condolences to family and friends 

    • A true gentleman 😂😂.  Had multiple convictions for violence against women. 

      • Hes not white wiz, so he can do what ever he wants and get a free pass.


        • I have a mate who's a far far left muso. Good bloke , he's been involved with youth work his whole life and has helped hundreds of young kids find their way for many years. Every single day he's posting something about domestic violence against women and lecturing males about our responsibilities to ensure we educate other males on the topic. I've always bitten my toungue and not commented as I do respect what he's done in his life ( has also helped many local bands make it big ). Anywho the other day he posted a big tribute about this guys death and how he's a true ambassador and how much the world will miss him. All I wrote was ,


          ";well I reckon there's an Ex spouse or 3 that will sleep easier tonight knowing they won't get their bones broken" 


          his response was that " this dude was also a victim , generational trauma , etc blah blah blah "  in summary it's the white man who bashed his partners in some kind of proxy method , and his spousal abuse should be some kind of lesson for us.  

          unbelievable, the mindset shows that as long as these lefties breathe air indigenous issues will always be present no matter how much money we throw at them. They need indigenous issues for them to feel like they're fighting for something. 

          • Anything that fits the leftist narrative they turn a blind eye to, America is a massive example. Trump could blow his nose with a paper towel and would make national news that he is too good for tissues. Biden on the other hand makes mistakes and the media hide it or defend him as much as they can.

            It is the left mentality and thank god Australia are nowhere near where USA are in terms of influence from the very far left.

            • LB, it won't be long mate . The education system has already got the wheels in motion in ensuring the next generation of children are woke lefties. 

          • The thing that I find amusing in these conversations is the line of thinking that all men need to take a stand against domestic violence. We all need to stand up against it. We all need to be better educated. But hey, not the guy that actually performs the violence, he has excuses for his actions...

            • Ikr meelk. Like the asshole bashing his mrs is my bro just cause we both got dicks. Sticking your nose in others domestics is a great way to get it cut off. I will not allow a woman to be beaten in front of me, but that is where my interest stops  

          • bingo

"Slide. Souths rarely hit the lead runner and almost always play out the back to a very deep backline. No need to jam in. Souths want you to jam in, they're banking on it. Move up and slide, they'll run out of room."
