Yes but it's very annoying when people negate a footballer's exploits because they've done some questionable things off field.

It's why I was very angry when Wayne Carey wasn't inducted into the hall of fame this year, and that it took them until last year to induct Gary Ablett. Just because they've done drugs/whatever else doesn't mean they weren't a wildly sensational footballer.

Now here's a level crossing for you. Railway lines crossing not just the road, but tram tracks as well (four such crossings exist in Melbourne). This is the one in Glenhuntly:

Gotta say, that was, (at the risk of sounding like a pretentious wank for a second) transcendent when I saw them live. Note-perfect and even heavier than on the album because of the general loudness.

But do you think that Carey, for example, should be forever damned because of his off-field indiscretions and that his football ability should be cast away?

Yeah, the burgers are chicken burgers of various kinds. I don't know what the hell else they're meant to sell! I mean, sure, they sell things like chicken drumsticks and stuff here too, but I consider that a side dish to a burger. As for a whole chook or a substantial portion of one or something ... well, if I want that, I'd buy it from the supermarket rather than KFC!

Yeah, the route 67 is one of the routes that ends up crossing LaTrobe on Swanston Street. That photo is right at the southern extremity of the Melbourne tram network. Probably about an hour trip by tram from there to Melbourne Central!

Crossings in Melbourne seem much better maintained than those in NSW. We don't have the numbers you guys do, though. That crossing with the tram lines is awesome!

The wedges were a limited time thing here. Though KFC's chips are fatter and more potato-y than what you'd get from Macca's or Hungry Jack's.

They do sell the mashed potatoes with gravy things here as a side dish with some of the bigger meals.

They already went by a couple of times. I know they played in Victoria Park to 40,000 people tonight.

I imagine some of the crossings outside inner Melbourne are probably in poorer shape. I don't see the level crossings on lightly used rural lines getting much love! Then Kerang happens and people come out and blast the railways when it's the idiot driver at fault ...

I've been going around and photographing the train/tram crossings while they still exist. Done three of the four so far. I expect them to be bypassed fairly soon as the trains are limited to 15km/h when crossing the tram tracks.

Wow I did not know trams travelled that far (I knew I didn't recognise that place, I take it from MC to the final stop)
