I have a big beef with this ab­sur­dity

The West Australian - - LETTERS -

It has fi­nally hap­pened. The anti-dis­crim­i­na­tion jug­ger­naut that fair-minded peo­ple have to put up with (sorry, I meant em­brace) these days has fi­nally reach its pin­na­cle of ab­sur­dity. We are now ob­vi­ously not al­lowed to ac­knowl­edge that bovine and ovine have dif­fer­ences. Since cave­man days it has been ac­cepted Aus­tralia-wide that a steak sand­wich is made with beef. Not any more, this year’s win­ner of WA’s best steak sand­wich was a lamb con­coc­tion (News, 17/7). No doubt tasty, but let’s be re­al­is­tic “not all steak sand­wiches are cre­ated equal”.

Salad days ahead

A lamb roll wins WA’s best steak sand­wich (News, 17/7). They couldn’t have ru­ined the com­pe­ti­tion more if they had given the prize to a Bun­nings sausage siz­zle. I guess we look for­ward to a quinoa and kale salad on the podium next year ? Dave Blunt, Mos­man Park

Crowded coach’s box

Se­nior strength and con­di­tion­ing coach, strength coach, de­vel­op­ment strength and con­di­tion­ing coach, game per­for­mance coach, game in­tel­li­gence and op­po­si­tion strat­egy coach, per­for­mance coach, per­for­mance coach — backs, per­for­mance coach — mid­field, per­for­mance coach — for­wards, ruck coach, strat­egy coach, per­for­mance an­a­lyst ...

These are just some of the Essendon match day staff as­sist­ing head coach John Wors­fold. There are ru­mours of com­mu­ni­ca­tion prob­lems in­side the coach­ing box — I won­der why? Per­haps they should add the com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager into the mix. Leigh Matthews re­cently com­mented that the head coach does not de­liver the old-style pep talk at the in­ter­vals any­more and the play­ers just go to their re­spec­tive line coaches. One won­ders if there is any­thing left for a head coach to do.
