Mr Yoffa should understand that It is not just myself …

Comment on Thumbs up for two Finke winners and 300 volunteers by Ian Rennie.

Mr Yoffa should understand that It is not just myself who is unhappy, but like many things there are but a few who bother to speak up.
On primary purpose, I am quite sure that race control knows the situation without the website, and if Mr Yoffa wants to know about the organisation’s finances he is in the position to know, not a poor uninformed (or as he would have it implied, misinformed) fool such as I.
The fact of the matter is the website was not up to scratch for whatever the reason, and the public will be expecting a lot better in 2015.

Thumbs up for two Finke winners and 300 volunteers
This year’s Finke Desert Race website has to be ranked as the most pathetic ever. It has been impossible for a tremendous number of people in the Alice, around Australia and the world to get results.
I personally have had people around Australia ring me asking where different riders are placed because they could not get that info from the site.
I have had to say to each and every one “sorry mate, I am as much in the dark as you”. So, where does that leave me? I am ringing around and finding the same thing. I do believe the Facebook page has quite a few comments regarding this.
It would be a very good idea for a complete report on the results to be published, not just the finishers, but covering Prologue, Day one and Day two to make up for this failure.
For the amount of taxpayers’ money that is pumped into this event I think that the committee needs to have a serious look at not having a repeat of this next year.
Sour grapes on my part? Sure, big time and why not, but I am sure there will be a few condemning me for this insulting comment stating overload on the site etc, etc, as also I am sure that those will be the fortunate few that were able to access the results.

Yes, Brian Butler had a wonderful father in James Henry Butler (deceased) who shared many stories and facts with me over the years regarding his wife (Brian’s mother) who he met in Darwin and the hurdles he faced from the authorities because he wanted to marry a full blood Aboriginal woman and the fact that he was most disturbed by misconceptions that Brian was of the “stolen generation”.
The last time I saw Brian was at his father’s house in Pt Augusta at around the time of his mother’s passing and I am yet to see a man with feature so much alike of his father’s.

Robyn Lambley MLA, Independent Member for Araluen is spot on.
Why does the normal side of the population have to have this junk rammed down our throats by the weird side of humanity? (Referring to the politicians, actually).
And why do politicians bow and scrape to minorities in the name of vote gathering by passing such ludicrous legislation. They need to get a life.

How much of our relationship with Aborigines is hypocrisy?
Is my refusing to apologise for any wrongs done to Aboriginal since white settlement hypocrisy?
No, it is not. Now David, give me one reason why it is and show me why living and working on an Aboriginal community makes me a hypocrite?
Should I grovel like Krudd or be a man? I will say this, Aboriginal people have no respect for people who grovel to them and I will go on to say that the initiated men that I have dealt with have my respect more than most of the two faced whites I have had dealings with.
And I am man enough to put my name up, because I am a Rennie and proud.
