Commenting on the story: SA’s lockout laws on election agenda after review put on ice

There is a case for prohibiting the sale of alcoholic drinks during certain hours between midnight and 6 or 7 a.m. However, prohibiting entry does not  achieve much and throwing people out could be counterproductive. Patrons already in these venues at these hours who do not wish to leave should be encouraged to buy coffee, tea or soft drinks and something for breakfast. This would reduce the effects of alcohol and give the venues some trade. People should be allowed to enter but not to buy alcohol during these hours. Those already inside should not be thrown out as this is likely to exacerbate societal problems by filling the streets with drunken people. – Margaret Dingle

Commenting on the story: 3246 new COVID cases as testing clinics close

Commenting on the story: Reds bracing to lose captain Mauk

Having watched Adelaide, via Paramount+, on a couple of occasions this season (versus Victory and City) the team can benefit if Mauk’s replacement is a true number 10. Mauk lacked the skill, inventiveness and game awareness to be a decisive (creator and finisher) number 10. His best position is that of a holding midfielder. – Robert Pettit
