Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

Who would have thought it? Only hours before the start of the much anticipated 2019 AFL season and what is the biggest story in football?

Injuries to key players? Can the Eagles go back to back? Will Collingwood fall over (again) at the final hurdle? No. Most of the media’s attention has focused around comments made on social media about a photo of Carlton’s AFLW star, Tayla Harris.


Oh the joys of social media. Giving a voice, and even five minutes of fame, to nobodies with nothing better to do. What a shame, but also what a shame that the media needs to make such an issue of it.

This is only my opinion but let’s hope that once the ball is bounced tonight, attention will shift to the great game and not focus on all the distractions off the field. I’m sick of it already! Mental health, drug issues, social media trolls. I want to see big marks, great goals, big hits, close games.

Now please don’t get cranky with me and suggest that I am trivialising the issue. I’m not. I just don’t think it should be the lead story. Especially not in the first week.

Not a great deal to tell in real estate locally this week. We have seen a strong reaction to the price drop on 52 Lialeeta Road last week with a number of offers placed on the property and negotiations continuing. It goes to show that buyers are still out there if they see value and that is our great challenge as real estate agents. Helping our sellers understand where the market actually is, rather than having often inflated, aspirational prices on properties.

Oh, and by the way, GO SAINTS in 2019.
