Commenting on the story: Positive COVID cases in SA community ‘quite possible’: Spurrier

I well understand Professor being “a little bit disappointed” by the weekend testing rates. I too am “a little bit disappointed” and “not confident about whether we may or may not be having something happen here”.

This much is certain though: if an exemption is given to 30 footballers and their support team (of another 10 or more), it will no doubt make for interesting reading and statistics if in two weeks’ time we have active cases in South Australia.

By all means consider the risks. By all means do look back in the rear view mirror. Hindsight can be so helpful. Will a further exemption be granted as compassion for the AFL’s losses? I am heartened to read that the Premier noted that the health committee will allegedly apply a “high level of scrutiny” to the State’s travel exemptions.

Without that I confess I would be feeling less than enthusiastic about continuing to faithfully respect the quarantine regime I’m following having returned from Victoria on Thursday of last week. Perhaps if I were to don a Collingwood jumper I would also qualify for this special exemption? – Tony McInerney

Commenting on the story: TAFE students hit with $10,000 course fee after subsidy axed

Another case of education for some. If students don’t fit the university mould they are left to fall between the cracks.

It is about time TAFE was funded and administered at a national level. As a former teacher I have have seen countless students who needed a hand to transition into the workforce, just let go.

Put politics aside and rethink the system. – Adrian Tamlin

Commenting on Touch Of The Fumbles: Tigerland and Your views, Tuesday June 1

Fumbles is my favourite read of the week. The scribe reflects the feelings of many Crows supporters. Love it. – Peter Laing

What a load of unmitigated drivel. – Julian Donn
