Comment on Stop Easter footy carnival in Alice: Liddle by Narayan Kozeluh.

They never stopped the Bathurst 500 from happening, even though each year a big mob of young guys would cause trouble, they simply dealt with the problem at hand. Bad behaviour is bad behaviour. It’s got nothing to do with Footy, maybe people come from the communities because they enjoy footy.
It seems typical to me, people like Mr Liddle and the Chief Minister want to use the big stick; instead of addressing the problem at the root of this conversation. If you don’t ask yourself the question why, what’s the use of whinging? Bullies only have one way to act and they reveal themselves by always wanting to use the big stick.
Stopping the footy carnival seems absolutely stupid and will not stop the bad behaviour, we all know that, as we also know the WHY. Let’s have a conversation about the WHY.
