Drip feeding 

Well, looks like the public is about to start being drip-fed more details of New Zealand's sick police culture.
The three men acquitted of raping Louise Nicholas face another High Court trial in relation to alleged sexual offending against another woman.
Assistant Police Commissioner Clint Rickards and former policemen Brad Shipton and Bob Schollum are alleged to have committed the crimes during the 1980s.
The three were acquitted by a High Court jury in March of 20 charges, including the alleged rape, sexual violation and indecent assault of Mrs Nicholas when she was a Rotorua teenager.
The Herald supported the right to publish the fact that the three men are to face another trial before the High Court at Auckland.
The complainant, who has name suppression, is a different woman from Mrs Nicholas.

What's the bet there's further, and far more damning suppressed information, to come out yet?

And when it does I wonder how the jury of the Louise Nicholas trial will feel - like fools?

In the NRL this week the big Aussie tipsters have a few favourites.
I might be missing something, but I cannot see how Parramatta are favourites here. They have been pretty bad of late. While I usually like to plump for slightly out of form sides to come back to form when least expected, posting Parra in the red here is going a little too far for my liking. The Roosters look to be warming up to somewhere near their best form, and will be fielding their best side in some time. Minichiello is still missing, but Amos Roberts has been outstanding as his replacement. Impressive efforts from Roosters playmakers, Finch, Anasta, and Wing at the highest level in the game on Wednesday night will be just the catalyst for the boys from Bondi to re-establish their place amongst the League’s front-runners. They have a recent 5 and 1 record over Parramatta, while the Eels have lost their last 4 games played in daylight hours. I expect the Roosters to extend that streak to 5, keep the Eels in the basement, and win comfortably.

Hmmm, might have to find me some spare change.
