Had anyone picked him this year, he would've QO'd via the "moment of applause before the game starts, QO source mentions it in a liveblog" path.

tbh if I laid in bed and was spoon fed and didn’t have to communicate, I’d think 10 years minimum!

Seems like a decent bet to go sometime in the next few years.

Gonna grab TWO names for the price of one.

A Labor MP sworn into federal parliament just two weeks ago has vowed to fight on after discovering her cancer had returned.  Peta Murphy, who won the Melbourne seat of Dunkley at the May 18 election, received the unexpected news last week that the cancer was back after five years in the clear.

"While this has come as a shock, my doctor advises me that my condition is treatable and that he expects me to do well with treatment, which I will start in the coming weeks," Ms Murphy said on Thursday.

Liberal senator Arthur Sinodinos, who survived a battle with cancer, was among the first to wish her well.

Things not looking good for Tom Long.

 

https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/celebrity-life/seachange-star-tom-long-has-months-to-live/news-story/93975fb4a9436fee2809091c7c2e5f77

 

Would definitely expect him to QO for DDP mainly due to his regular cast role in Seachange where he was excellent.  Also good in the movie Two Hands which is one of my all-time favourite Australian movies.

Sounds like things have miraculously turned around for Tom Long. Looks like alot of picks have turned to dust.

It always seems so prematurely optimistic when statements such as "X survived a battle with cancer"/"X has been declared cancer-free" are made - especially when it hasn't even been 5 years since their diagnosis.  Even if you survive that long, it hasn't necessarily been cured.  I've known two people in real life who died of their cancer 15+ years after it was first diagnosed (the same type of cancer), despite long periods of remission and apparently 'successful' treatment in between (one died 18 years later; the other, 21 years later).

hmm, this story/book's reporting may be dated, as he was described having a "65th birthday bash recently," he's been 66 since july
