I have a big beef with this absurdity
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.
