"Of course people in Iceland, one Nice Person Is Andrew Miller who's on the line now with the today's newspapers. Good morning to you Andrew. Or I feel like I'm under pressure now good morning. Is I know it is quite hard for you particularly at this hour, listen. We've been hearing in a headlines that Australia's military, sending a thousand troops to Melbourne in an effort to help contain a corona virus outbreak there of fears of second wave. Now this is something that's been widely reported there particularly in the age. The age is where we're starting, and they are going with this story now it's going to sound quite peculiar to listeners in countries which have been harder hit by this, this is. The decision to call out at least a thousand Australian Defence Force soldiers to Melbourne, because something like twenty or so new cases have been reported in Victoria. Which is obviously in the great scheme of things not deal, but Australia had been congratulating itself on more or less, having knocked this thing on the head, and so the recent appearance in Victoria. In recent days is a bit of a concern. It's not actually clear exactly what these thousand troops are actually going to do. I suspect that there's an amount of reassurance theater going on here it's. The Australian Defence Forces are a very highly regarded and very highly trusted institution in Australia and there's A. kind of reflex among politicians to sort of deployed them. As a as exactly that as a means of reassuring the public in semi, related news. I noticed that panic. Buying has resumed of some products in Australia or in Victoria. Particular so woolworth's an other big shops are having to reintroduce item limits. PAPS! The army's there to stop people panic buying. Would be able to be quite the comedown. Wouldn't if you'd sort of earnestly signed on to defend your country and protect its constitution, and you find yourself separating people fighting over toilet paper and. It's not that it's not that unlikely. Let's turn to ABC and elsewhere who are reporting on the first indigenous speaker of an Australian parliament. This is. In the context of recent protests and demonstrations. Had the local iterations in Australia. This is this is kind of a heartening story. The death of George. Floyd Minneapolis may twenty fifth did have resonances in stroke you? There is a persistent issue of indigenous people dying in police custody. And there were a lot of protests associated with that this is. That context, it's a nice story chantey. Pay It. She's going to become the speaker of the parliament of the northern territory. He was he will be the first indigenous speaker of in parliament. He's previously being the first openly gay indigenous parliamentarian Australia. He's predescessor has stepped down amid a corruption scandal, and it turns out that the order of succession. Being what is, he's new deputy. Speak Garioch. Kit is also an indigenous politician, so the northern territories parliament. Has a now has an indigenous speaker and deputy indigenous speaker both essentially place holders, because there's an election on August, twenty second, but. Yeah. Well at any time, this would be a heart story, but right now. especially it seems especially when. Andrew I'm very sad to say that actually we do have time to look at the full story. I can hear the disappointment in your voice. It's not that hard at the moment to Crowbar Gratuitous football story into the paper per view. This isn't that gratuitous because to go back to where we come in one of the people in Victoria. Who has tested positive for corona virus? As luck would have, it is common, McKenna who plays football for Essendon now? The Australian Football League, which is the top floor, destroyed enrolls. Competition has recently restarted after some weeks of not playing and playing in mostly. Mostly empty stadiums, and it's playing short and games, and with lots of restrictions about where teams can play in where they can count go, but what we have now is the Connor McCann mystery. Because he tested positive and then tested negative, and now nobody's terribly sure what actually happened and whether he had the oldest or not, and and this was a big deal. Essendon game at the weekend was cancelled abruptly when when he's, he's positive. Test was returned. And now no one sure what has happened but Melbourne being Melbourne and Melbourne being melvina belt football, this has now become a major story, their podcasts and features and investigative reporting going into exactly where he is spent every minute of the last two weeks. It's it's verging on self parody, but I'm quite enjoying it. And there's a related story from Northern Ireland. Well, there is brilliantly. This has gone international because Khanna McKenna is among a cohort of Gaelic football players who have gone to Australia and taken up the Australian game. He's from. County Tyrone Northern Ireland. So to the doubtless bafflement of Irish raiders, the newspapers are reporting. This is world the Irish. Among, those who have gone quite big on it and now let me do the Catis plug. Okay, if you're interested in Australian. You can buy COM which is. A Interesting Enough Angie Miller which tells the story of the Victorian football. League and its success success, the Australian football league a that's what I say is it is your usual ten percent opposed. Thank you. That was Monaco's Angie Miller and seriously is a very good book, Cobb. He brings his usual dry wit and his wonderful style to this book, which is out now. You're listening to.

"Let's continue with browse through the day's newspapers Antipodean flavor today. Courtesy of my colleague from down under violating stone. It's Markle's contributing editor Andrew. Me Good Morning Andrew. Good morning from monocle. Twenty four zero eleven studio sounding good this morning not too far from where? I began my day. We don't we're not like more wise though don't live together but we're not too far less than the country. We've been talking about this morning about a political leadership or lack thereof And what at first glance might seem a nice story Camber Times leading with a great piece about a masterclass in leadership? Slight problem for people in Australia. It's not there's no it's not. It's an editorial by Sues Wilson. Whose Kiwi academic And it might be the case. That she's enjoying sticking gluten was starters. Koa side very often. I think choosing to run the pace quite prominently is also the Canberra Times The record of our nation's capital enjoying sticking the boot into the federal government. It does might quite a case. For just cinder Ogden's handling of this crisis it credit for being direct straightforward decisive and transparent in various other adjectives not recently applied to strongest Prime Minister Scott Morrison and it does kind of toying the risk of tooting monocle own of what we were saying about to Cinderella and when we nine to last year's best soft power leader. It shouldn't be the case may be the basically saying like you know what you're doing in a fundamentally decent human being wins you this sort of applause but the bar isn't set terribly high at the moment now indeed no what about another soft power asset that. I think has a complicated relationship with Australia the monarch Queen Elizabeth at the top of the show. And you talked about this address. She gave last night. How are the papers covering the speech? He gave Andrew that guns surprisingly big on it when I say. Surprisingly the monarchy in Australia is not the big deal that it wants walls indeed. It couldn't have been I. I looked up because I wanted to make sure the numbers right and I are astonished when the Queen. I visited Australia in nineteen fifty four. And that's an astonishing felt in itself. Sydney had a population of about one. Point eight million people just over one point. One million people in Sydney toned out to see her ship arrive now granted. There wasn't much from television in nineteen fifty four in fact. I'm not sure there was television in nineteen fifty four but nonetheless. That's the that's the peak from which she's come down. But I think the reason that the striking papers have gone quite big on her address last night was it's not so much anymore out of difference to the monarchy. I think it's it's respect for her personally in the continuity she represents Mo- most historians will have no recollection of any other head of state. And I don't think that the pipe would have gone nearly as big on this if it'd Bayden address given by for example King Charles the food but what I didn't realize looking at the Sydney Morning Herald coverage which is the the pace. We're talking about the outstanding pub quiz fact. This is the only fourth time only the fourth time. She's ever given an unscheduled broadcast in her entire Ryan. And I think you could start a lot of arguments in the pump by asking people denying the other three. Let's let's invite all listening to right right to Andrew Miller. His email details her on the masthead of course. Let's talk a little bit about another intriguing global dynamic Andrew wherever we look in the world people are looking at The repatriation of citizens stranded by this awful period for Australia. I guess it's even more of a global problem than for other nations who are international globalist in their outlook. It is because there's two things playing into this. One is the fundamental question of distance. Almost by definition. When you leave Australia you've had to go locally to do it. It's a big country. A way from anywhere so getting people back from places is quite the logistical enterprise and also we are especially now youth of a nation of travelers. We you know. We don't have the option of having a a few days in Portugal or France or Spain or Italy. We tend to travel. Quite protracted periods quite large distances and quite often on the budget. So we have we are having issues or the Australian government is certainly having issues with a lot of backpackers who had been stranded overseas often in not terribly accessible places. They can't get home Because the airport's closed because travel bans being imposed by whichever country there so there's a piece on the ABC's website which is what we're talking about looking at the the plight of the strategy in trying to do knowledge until you and India specifically but there's hundreds of these cases all over the world just in the last hour or so. It's been announced that a commercial jet. He's got to be organized by the Australian government to bring a strike inside from Peru but not actually clear yet known saved yet to clear whether the Australian government is shouting backpack as they fly time from Peru or whether they're going to be obliged to kick in for it which a lot of people might think it's cheaper to stay here and you were telling me short but we can't cost the opportunity to ask the author of bestselling Book About Football Con. The Best Book about Austrailia Rules Football. I've ever read also the only one but nevertheless poppycock poppycock tat in your single on and tell me what this is. All about. This is interesting. This is being reported in the age. The Melvin News by Burn. It's not just about destroyed football but this is going to be a conversation. The other sports competitions around the world again to have which is how do we restart and the Australian football league which played one round of dimes and couple of weekends ago. Then through the talent is looking at making the most of Australia's space thinking about actually picking a place in Australia which can be isolated virus free and just putting every team there for the duration of the season so the virus can't get in apply. It can't get out I have. I am fascinated to see how this is going to play out in practice. It's fascinating idea. Sounds like it sounds like a good documentary Andrew. Great to speak with you. That's all contributing editor Andrea Melissa. Promisingly spark sprightly at this time of the morning. All I can say thank goodness. We don't have a videolink. You're listening to the globalist..

"Public like that Karina was a bold move or basically about the play she had left. How did it go. I mean based on what we saw. She was kind of asking for all this confrontation. didn't play out so great for her. Seventy people were selected to speak out of the one hundred fifty and most of them vented their frustration toward her administration her incompetence as a leader some even asking her to step down people were asking questions like why listen to one hundred fifty randomly selected citizens when you won't listen to over two million people who've taken to the streets three-fer question put like that yes us jackson-lee and some have even you know picked on specific incidents like Yunlong attacks when triads appeared at the subway stations and police didn't come in time I am to help people out people said how do you respond to those who've been brutally attacked and beaten up by the police what she like at because it varies enormously from politicians. Titian to politician is she good at dealing with people and at interacting with the public some some politicians have terrific aptitude for some just terrible where does where does she figure on that spectrum. We'll purely based on the past four months. We've seen that you know press conferences. At this dialogue specifically it just seemed like she had a list of responses a list of talking points and regardless of what was thrown out her. She would just say the same thing. She had no empathy not at all for the people. She didn't suggest made an make any suggestion that she would come to any sort of compromise so I mean it's telling of how just truly truly incompetent she has is as leader so if this meeting did not impress the people selected by lottery to be there all that much and it seems very much like it didn't did. Did it have a wider resonance. Did it attract a sympathetic response outside the venue well directly outside the venue. There were there. There were protesters surrounding the area and obviously before this all happened. She said you know this is a peaceful dialogue. I hope that we can come together. We can be be united but she there were riot. Police stationed outside with tear gas and rubber bullets at the ready so for her to to have that station patient there. It's just not welcoming for anyone. No one's going to feel safe. No one's going to feel like they can trust her. and unfortunately it took her four hours to get out of the venue because protesters were just so angry at the way that she handled last night well it is as we go to where either very late on Friday night the very early on Saturday morning in Hong Kong depending on on how you calibrate these things. What are you expecting this weekend in terms of protest so it's going to be the fifth anniversary bursary of the umbrella movement on Saturday tomorrow so and also as as we mentioned previously October first on Tuesday which is the seventieth anniversary of the People's Republic of China and to organize protests have been given the green light so people are allowed to take to the streets. There shouldn't be be violence. We hope that they won't there won't be violence. an speaking to some of the protesters and organizers they say that these upcoming marches are an opportunity for people people to mourn more than anything the lives of those who have been sacrificed for the past seventy years or those who you know the suicides have occurred it over the past four months as well so overall we we shouldn't expect a lot of violence particularly if the police have given the protesters the green light to go forward career choice. Thank you for joining us in just a moment. This is Monaco's house feud do stay tuned and at this point on the house view a shoutout to listeners in Melbourne and indeed Sydney who may find themselves unable to sleep for anticipation of tomorrow's Australian Football League grand final. The Australian state of Victoria is certainly unusual probably unique in observing two public holidays for sporting events one. The first Tuesday of November is Melbourne Cup Day in Fantas. The rest of the country pretty much takes the afternoon off for the race as well the other the last Friday my day in September is Grand Final Eve the day before the climactic match of the Australian football league season for which more than one hundred thousand listened people will fill the Melbourne cricket ground to watch the Premiership decided the football. They're watching is of course Australian Rules Football Australia's earliest peculiar passion the code correctly described by one Australian Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies as the greatest winter game devised by mortal men the clubs contesting the grand final this year Richmond from the suburbs of Melbourne founded in eighteen eighty five and greater western Sydney kidney from the outer suburbs of Sydney who only joined the AFL in two thousand and twelve a creation of the league at spectacular expense and with generous assistance assistance to further the cause of Australian rules in territory traditionally dominated by rugby league so there are many subtexts to Saturday but one of the weed is that this clash between the Tigers and the giants is also a contest of the two best a fill club songs. Here's Richmond's and here is greater western. Sydney's dowd from the club's songs are a curious quirk uh of the AFL all eighteen clubs have won and they are braid and bellowed by fans in the stands and players in the dressing rooms in the event of victory. The League's older establishment teams have mostly borrowed their's from familiar tunes. Jill lungs is the toreador song from bees as common Be Collingwood's started life as has the music whole standard goodbye. Dolly Gray in Carlton's stately anthem is the minstrel Choon Lily of Laguna and and the Saints Kilda serenade historically infrequent wins with an obvious choice the the canonical versions were recorded in the early nineteen seventies by a choir of Melbourne jazz players wrangled by a record company called fable the expansion of once the Victorian Football League to become the Australian football league during the nineteen eight thousand nine thousand nine hundred ninety s saw new teams added to the competition and therefore four the necessity of new songs in several regrettable instances original works were commissioned these all absolutely sucked and indeed suck still non worse than non more eighty s abomination which fanfares the West Coast Eagles onto the field greater western Sydney's splendid blended swaggering stomp is the work of Harry Angus of Millburn rock band the Cat Empire the no great football fan angus understood what was marvelous about the original clubs club songs an outcome is that blend of match. Oh braggadocio and arch high camp into something that sounds like it might have welcomed Soviet tank divisions back from the battle of Kursk Greater Western. Sydney are a new club with few fans and little history Richmond aren't old club but one of the best supported in the country with with a glorious heritage the two thousand nine hundred nine grand final this Saturday shapes as quite a game innovation versus tradition money versus passion Sydney versus Melbourne but whoever wins will have an appropriately rousing song to sing when the final siren's gone. I am joined now on Nichols Nicole's house view for reasons which will shortly become apparent by monocle research. Nick Milanese who being from Perth may first of all have something to say in defense of West Coast Eagles terrible and stupid stone. I don't I really dinosaurs crooked versatile. I think you'd find that most. West Coast Eagles fans also I think it's terrible so why does it possess because it is objective garbage. It's it's the it's the worst one thousand nine hundred radio rock drivel. It's even got someone playing bass with the thumb which should be a crime punishable Chaba by having the digits zone off one hundred percent agree and really. I think you would find moist paypal do why we persist. I think maybe a stubbornness but like like I was saying earlier when we were chatting about these walls. We're listening to your pace. We are constantly trying to reinvent it like we. We introduced a chant last year at the start of it to try and sort of jazz it. It sounds like a high school sports day. That's what it sounds like now that they've got the chance at the start. Well my attempt to bite you into controversy. There has clearly really failed so we should probably talk about the thing you're actually here to talk about which it says right here on the running order is Milton Keynes This is possibly not some it's ever happened on any of our shows before mcquarry talking about Milton Keynes we are talking about it because I was reporting there for the festival of creative urban living living now now. I don't know if you noticed about Milton Keynes or anything about have you. Have you heard it's been made fun of. It's the punchline for I've been there once. I think I went to see. Ram At Milton Keynes bowl a billion years ago this this cows as well right concrete castle museum I believe that would be concrete. Candles run the museum. No concrete cows are now housed in a museum but that that cuts to the core of Milton Keynes is made fun of four. It's the fact that you know. There wasn't really anything there. There was a joke they couldn't actually have agricultural farm to install concrete cows to make up the numbers it was a place that people didn't WanNa be necessarily it was started in nineteen sixty seven as part of the new towns movement where the British government basically declared a whole heap in new towns around the UK to move people out of the cities to ease overcrowding in them and Milton Keynes I guess became a the showpiece newtown. I know you are skillfully avoiding the question of why you were there. was there okay so. I think so because we're going to give you a little bit of Evan designed background so it was designed in the Garden City Movement where they had lots lots of housing with light industry and agricultural all mixed together in a single development. I guess surrounded by trees. The housing itself is absolutely outstanding. You're surrounded by greenery. There's ample open space at the front and the back of the houses. The issue is visit our you're not experiencing this yours simply driving through one of its many wide roads punctuated by roundabouts and not really getting the tree. Milton Keynes experience so the city council in setting up these festival wanted to try and showcase that so they're inviting people people to come and stay with a resonant to try and get an understanding for what it's like to live in Milton Keynes and why it's so good and is that what you did did you go and stay with some Milton Keynes. I did stay with a lovely eighty year old woman named poulain she we it was a quintessentially English experience we had fish and chips for dinner cool English breakfast in the mornings and Moshi. Oh she pays the night before a cup of tea it was it was delightful so he can intrigue listeners go online and sign up for this they can so the the festival runs from the twenty sixth the September to the thirteenth of October and it's not it's not just the beds united program which is what you spend the night in the city it's also hosted by the exhibitions and events of closed off part of the main street or the Midsummer Boulevard to house an ideas forum for I guess vision in the new future for Milton Keynes because it was it was meant to be a kind of utopia by having all these built you know these buildings surrounded by greenery and and you know it was the advent of the age of the car and they really embrace that but now they've gotta trying I guess envision a new type here and that's why they want to get people in and sharing their ideas and exploring at three this festival we can read all about this in an upcoming edition of Monocle you can I have have a observation at the start of the magazine and you can read about it..

I mean, we got bubbles going to end soon AFC championship game are NFC championship game. I kinda just wanna keep talking football. I was thinking about it during the commercial where he got to cherish it. Right. We're going to have until June to talk basketball basket. Well this. I wanna talk about Russell Westbrook. We'll get to that. Next basketball is my favorite sport. I like the way they dribble up and down the court. That's right. That would work worked better had it. You know, you you've been going to the beat which is going on. But I have no rhythm. Clearly, you have the vocal designs for a for a Baptist. Gentlemen. I have absolutely no rhythm. The phone one eight hundred seven seven seven two nine zero seven is the number if you'd like to happen at any time James is in Indiana. It's up James. Good morning, Matt how he did. I am doing splendid. How about yourself, sir? I am finding a couple of things now that you guys get back to basketball number one is Tyler Murray dumb. Tyler very, why do you think he's done? Play baseball with the Oakland A's, and according to a certain draft analyst possibly being drafted by the Miami Dolphins. Well, I think he would have to pick on their James. I don't think he's gonna play both. So you don't think he'd do a Bo Jackson or Dion Sanders and do both. No, I don't think at twenty one twenty two years old. He's going to try and emulate. Bo Jackson, what he's trying to do is exactly what I think he should be doing with someone of his skill set. James? I think that he knows that baseball is an option right now. I myself am surprised that he I guess I guess I shouldn't be surprised because of the successful season that he had. But we all did have this idea that he was going to be a baseball player, and he was gonna make four point six six million dollars. And that was gonna be the signing bonus who's going to do the minor leagues. But James, can you blame him for wanting to go into the NFL draft after winning the Heisman Trophy and hearing? He's projected to be a first round draft. Can you blame the deck? I cannot blame him one. Did I tell you what? If the dolphins do drafting, and they do want to sign him. I think they're going to have to pay the as. That signing bonus. Interesting. Well, the thing. Go ahead. No. I was just gonna say. No, I was just gonna say he's not going to pay that they're not gonna pay the signing bonus. What the most difficult thing the signing bonus. By the way, we'll be given back to the as let's let's keep that clear. They won't have to pay the signing bonus the difficult part for the for the athletic for the athletics. If he does go to the NFL is that they they don't get compensated. The first round pick. They will get the signing. Bonus back though, they will not be compensated the first round pick. So they lose a pit. I understand. Oh, one more thing before I go. Yeah. Recommendation at checkout. Something on Facebook ever. See Australian rules football Austria. Are we talking about is is is is also being on YouTube today that blew my mind. These guys they had the top fifty catches from all time in that league. And these guys would make NFL coaches roles. I mean, they were making catch after incredible catches. I mean. Wow. Is it? I'll go check it out on YouTube, James. Thank you very much for the call. I wonder if Australian football uses the exact same kind of football that American football does Jacob have you watched these YouTube videos to which James is referring I I missed it. I missed it to how do you think that came about James, what do we let him go where he's he's got James his? We don't do. We wanna see when James you still there. Yeah. I'm still here. Okay. What prompted you? I've got a question for you. What prompted you to search on YouTube? Australia's like you're going through throughout your day James is going throughout her day. A loyal caller the show. I really appreciate you, man. So you're going you make your Cup of coffee. You're starting your day. And you'd think yourself, oh, I want to search on YouTube. Australian football catches how does that thought? Come about. Well, actually met let you in little secret. Yeah. I remember the days when ESPN was carrying Australian rules football. And I saw some of the most incredible catches I've ever seen. These guys were jumping six maybe ten feet in the air making head fi. Wait a lot shapes. They were jumping ten isn't a basketball hoop. Ten feet. He sure those weren't. All these guys way. James only ask a question here is I'm correct, right? A basketball regulation is ten ten. So you saw in the Australian Football League James them jumping to the point where their feet would be at the rim of a basketball hoop. That's what you saw. Absolutely. I mean, and and I'll tell you what if you wanna talk punters. Chock-full because they were getting kicks from fifty sixty yards. Wow. Those two cetera post. Gold there. I call him on B livable.

If our daughter is swimming competitively against boys because we're watching some of the high school boys yesterday at the swimming. I'm like, they are powerhouses, right? The girls are too, right? But it's it's different. Right, boys. Bodies are different than girls bodies. It's different.

The teammates are not upset about this. No. In fact, it was the the football league. The Australian Football League the af the women's league the AFL w who barred Hannah mousy from entering their league. And so even though she has been able to play like on a local level. They didn't want her to be part of their like, national or international league. And so there was. A big story, and you can watch the video on our website chicks on the right dot com. When you when he interview Hannah Mounsey who is clearly a dude in every way, except for the now have like a Bob and Hannah claims to live as a woman, there was a friend of hers who's a dude who was talking about, you know, feeling very defensive for her because she's in this dress. She will not have surgery. She will not get boobs added on. She will not LOP off her dangles. She's just decided this is as far as I'm going to transition and I wanna play on the women's team. Of course, she wants to play in the women's team. Everybody's by. And this is like the man list. This was the manly, man.

"Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three and Pat unleashed on Twitter. History was made over the weekend. With the world's first ever transgender boxer. There was a couple of scars between his chest and abdomen that remained visible from where where the surgery occurred to remove breasts. But Patricio Manuel insisted on no special treatment, which I like before or during the fight made it abundantly clear at the fighters meeting on Friday even requested that ringside commentators. Don't even mention that. He was once a woman. Of course, they did. I mean historic first time it's ever happened. Of course, they're going to mention it. But then this person used to be a woman is now a man goes out and fights men in the boxing ring and had a unanimous decision victory over Hugo Agar that hundred twenty eight pounds super featherweight division. That's pretty amazing. That is pretty cool. That's I mean, that's amazing. He he's he's not asking for special dispensation. He's not trying to you know, change the rules because used to be a woman, none of those things, and what's his name Patricio men. Well, I'm a fan. So seriously, I mean, no special treatment doesn't mention is for purposes moving up in competition as opposed to others in the past and the other way right advantage. Your man, you're transitioning to a woman, and then you fight. Then you fight women seems to be an unfair advantage Patricio, whatever the last two, and he said. I'm in a position where I can help. And I I wanted to help. And that's it. You can't hide it. I'm not trying to hide it either. But I'm not gonna use it as publicity gotta love that. Okay. Yeah. Love that. Cool. There seems to be a lot of this going around with transitioning here in sports, and you know, maybe we're just hearing about it a lot now. But it seems like this didn't use to happen doesn't it? I don't know if it's more prevalent than it once was, but it feels like it. There's another person here who played for Australia's men's team. But now, okay here we go transgendering dominating women's handball. So the opposite of Patrice. Yes. Yes. Six to two hundred twenty pounds this person go and male to female transgender and playing handball I guess used to play rugby or Australian rules football or whatever that is. And really dominated there. I think they banned him her for that. Yes. So before the transition to female played for Australia's men's handball team. Scored four goals in a match against Kazhakstan and contributed a combined eight goals in matches against Japan and ran so really kind of dominating here in the man to woman transition. Australia one though twenty nine twenty four over Iran, and the result may turn out to be a gold worthy. If they finish in fifth or better. It also means that they won't have a wild card to share. I don't I don't understand handball rules, but due to the weight and the height of this person and the testosterone levels. He was banned from entering the Australian Football League the women's Australian Football League draft last year. So that's why. He transitioned she transitioned instead into handball and is now dominating handball. Handball that we're used to a different sort of handle. I think a lot of things going on in that story. I would say this is not a gentlemanly thing to do. Go from the dude sport into the female. And then you're dominating. Yeah. What a jerk. Well, it's what happened. You know? It's happened in high school sports. And it's you know, you gotta feel for the for the girls involved for the women involved because they don't believe it's fair either. And I guess their opinions and their sensibilities can't be taking risk jury risk. It really is. But look the league has weight specifications. And I'm sorry. He she does not meet those now six to two twenty a big woman a big woman girl. So anyway. Play with the men. Although she's not, well, maybe she doesn't. So to speak sorry.
