Look I hope you're trolling but I'll bite anyway. It's becoming increasingly clear that the management of communication with second language speakers or those with limited English altogether in Melbourne has been woeful. I'm less clear on the relative merits of the contact tracing schemes, but the decentralised delivery of public health in NSW has meant that their messaging is better tailored to individual communities, and that seems to have been a factor in better outcomes. Laying the blame with people who are not being given clear instructions and doing it in a racially charged way makes it pretty clear what type of person you are.
As for the basketball, I'm not convinced that Nationals should be a priority next year. I would like to see all local, regional and state competitions up and running before we worry about shipping kids from all over the country. It's not in the best interests of kids to be rushing back to high intensity training and Victoria, at least, lacks the time to gradually ramp up and then fully prepare for an April tournament. I'm not Victorian, and I think there's an argument for running the event without them. But given the potential disruption of other outbreaks, I think kids would be better off focusing on smaller events rather than keeping their fingers crossed for something major and then missing out again.
