Finally got footy back up and running and now Alastair Clarskson is taking pot shots at the ‘state of the game’.5.30 – Is running sport during COVID-19 becoming a code war as well as a state war of NRL v AFL? Discussion of the changing face of the hub set up. Hutchy feels like Melbourne teams should get out now while they can. If they don’t want to leave their families, then don’t go.11.30 – reflecting on the current state of play under COVID-19. From international border closures to some Melbourne suburbs being off limits.16.00 – The narrative around Heritier Lumumba’s claims of racism at Collingwood has been interesting.

Thanks to listener Justin Cornell for the tip off.29.00 – Discussion of budget cuts at the ABC while meanwhile the federal government announced $50 million public interest news gathering program to support rural and regional publishers and broadcasters.35.30 – Question of the Week for Social Status Toby Mew via Facebook asked;"We often see controversial media personalities continue to get away with, frankly, extremely offensive statements. Some presenters, such as Alan Jones or Sam Newman, have a reputation for this and yet kept their seats for years. At face value, it seems that the media keeps them on for their ability to generate headlines, under the guise of promoting diverse opinions. At what point does the media say 'enough', and remove people from airtime for their remarks?That’s our Question of the Week for Social Status. Social Media marketing is more important than ever and if your business needs social media marketing, Social Status are offering fifty percent off to any sounding board listener.
