Would you be happy to pay more tax to better fund health, education and transport services?

NOW: Chief Executive Officer of the Port Adelaide Football Club Keith Thomas states the clubs side of the story regarding the Powell Pepper incident. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Listen to that crow loving maggot from 7

How good is KT? I would have reacted differently to mike smithson 😉

How he hell is it possible for the CCTV to be handed over to anyone but the Police ? Even Police must have a court order to go through CCTV

Media has a lot to answer for and they don’t let up

Another words she was payed hush money. If only everybody was given the chance to tell their story before news was reported. What makes him different from anyone else.

Only when these young women take it to the police instead of media should these situations be taken seriously. Agree with club suspending him for being out though

K.T. is being hung out to dry by Channel 7Take them on...by going to Unley yesterday and gathering Sturt people to take their side was totally unacceptable. Channel 7 you are a disgrace.

Then why did she go to 7news and not cops

Media are trying to dig themselves out of a hole here by the look of it

Whats to stop opposition chicks making up stuff about players before big games

Surely the victim would have made a complaint to the police and the perpetrator would have been interviewed by police. Apparently the victim hasn't reported the matter to the police.

So i am confused...there should be no grey....it either did or didnt happen....if it did then we cop the whack...if it didnt then we dont accept it and go after channel 7 and this chick.

She needs to say that on tv so everyone can hear it

Smithson you don’t need to know, give up mate, well done KT 👍🏻

Mike Smithson so disappointing, certainly have now seen a very different side to your reporting. Thought you were more professional than this 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Glad to have Keith as a member of our club. His calmness is so inspiring. Coming from one of the Clubs traditional foes on the field, he has embraced our team as his own. Kudos to him and Kochie. Smithson is a dog.

Certainly has thank goodness the Club is making sure Sam will be looked after

The media doesn’t need to see the video and girl should have reported it to the proper authorities and the media make everything worse than what it is grrrr

Why isn’t the question why didn’t the young lady go to the police the manager of the night club and the list goes on

Hopefully the club is able to help SPP get his life back together, no one needs to have this sort of thing hanging over their head for years to come. Well done KT and Kochie and the club for standing by Sam

PAFC done wrong exepting 3 games from AFL but as club needed to give Sam 3 games just to let players know you cant this if you wanna be professional player.

Seem to label one party but it doesn’t seem to be working the other way

Channel 7 being dogs, no balance from them.

Because there was a Channel 7 reporter there

Media want too absolutely crucify him

This will effect councils Across the board. Yes Bendigo rates will go up as per 2018/2019 budget shows. Bendigo will face a worse problem in the coming yrs. As our land fill (tip) closes in aprox 2022. But i am sure some ex councillors yrs ago, starting a plan to fix this problem. Problem is our coucil is not good with the truth or transpancy. So we will just sit back and pay out money and see which councillors in a few yrs are rubbing their grubby hands together with $$$ in their eyes

Australia loves the Chinese money but not their friendship

My husband was turned down last year for funding for proton therapy for brain cancer. I contacted several USA clinics and my husband was approved for treatment. We used a portion of his super, savings, raised money and left for treatment on November 3rd 2017 and returned January 17th. An epic journey for us and 2 young children. He has a scan on May 7th. We were originally advised that the proton machine would be in adelaide by 2020, which gave me hope incase my husband needed it again. Having to wait another 2 years could be the difference between life and death for him. We definitely couldn't fund another trip. Adelaide needs this machine now, not in 2022.

We are desperately seeking help for a young man whom has dedicated 17 years of his life to the ADF and also suffering with Chordoma, 2 young children , 2 major back surgeries, pop locks holding his shoulder in place , pain 24/7 living on multi lethal pain killing drugs and anti depressants, suffering PTSD and grieving for his father whom past away on Good Friday . This boy has given his life to his country and gone beyond the call of duty , he / we need help now and no one is listening. Help needed urgently!!!

Where is the humanity in the Government!! fund this child for gods sake.

Too late for my 24 year old son. Died last year from Lymphoma

Carol Coombs you are an inspiration, wow that time has gone fast! Love you long time xx

Love you too Mic. 😚😚

I disagree with what the guy was saying. It is not possible to take out of the equation an amount for savings first. First you take out all the bills and then your left with an amount of money. You then and only then can divide the amount left over into spend and save. By doing what the guy said by taking the amount out for savings first then working the rest out is not possible at all. If you take out too much for savings first then you may be left with not enuf to cover the bills. Hence why you always take out the money for bills first and see what’s left over. That’s how I’ve always done it myself and will continue for as long as needed. Just goes to show you cant believe what your told some times. My way is fool proof.

The new 165-room, seven-storey Atura Hotel at Adelaide Airport is taking shape. Located adjacent the domestic and international terminal, the hotel will have a direct walkway to the Level 2 domestic and international check-in area. Importantly, it will make life a little bit easier for those early morning flights! ...

Looks great !!! BUT Now you need to look into sorting out drop off and pick up - it is appalling- !!!!!! Spend some time and money fixing it please !!!!! Maybe look at other airports and see how they handle it - for example Melbourne drop off and pick up are in two seperate areas!!!!!! You only need to read all the comments to realise everyone thinks it is an issue which needs to be solved

Agree with pick up and drop off criticism. Also needed are more toilets inside the terminal. One set at each end of the terminal and one in the middle is nowhere near enough when there is distance to walk and large numbers of passengers. Ridiculous.

Needs more bars 🍻 🍷
