OOPS. They did it again. Thirty-two years after the biggest snub in Tasmanian history, the Apple Isle has been forgotten once more.

WHETHER it’s AFL or NRL or any professional sport, we’re all sick of overpaid idiots behaving badly. Our netball skipper has a simple way to stop it.

THE interim CEO of the Los Angeles Clippers testified that coach Doc Rivers told him he will quit if Donald Sterling remains the owner of the team.

THOUSANDS are convinced. The powers that be do not want this Formula One star to win the world championship.

EWEN McKenzie has picked his Wallabies for the looming Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship - is it a winning squad and where do key players stand?

Playing Venues

The picturesque Albert GroundWhile the MCC home ground is the MCG, very few Premier Cricket games are played there owing to the heavy national and interstate program. 

The MCC First and Second XI play their home matches at the picturesque Albert Ground, the club's 'home base' for more than a century. 

The Albert Ground also hosts countless representative cricket matches in any given summer, including Cricket Australia Cup, Dowling Shield, XXIX Club, Country Week and Australian Under 17 and Under 19 championship matches.

Since the start of the 2012/13 season, the club's Third and Fourth XI are playing at the HG Smith Oval in Royal Park, Parkville.

This follows a succession of moves from our once long time home base of the ‘Old Scotch’ ovals located in Yarra Park, the relocation brought about by the development of Melbourne Park.
