What some superannuation firms are doing with our super is far worse than this.

It's your super. You have a choice.

Choice of which fund.

Choice of where it's invested.

If you want no risk, you can choose to put it into a cash management type account within your existing fund.

If you don't like the fees charged by your existing fund, there are plenty of cheaper options.

And, if you want total control you can always set up a DIY, or 'self managed' fund and roll your super, your Mrs, and even kids super into it. (Max 4 members for DIY super) Pool the money and use it as a deposit for a commercial property. Let the rent and your ongoing employer SGC pay off the loan, then live off the income stream in retirement.

Plenty of options.

Apathy and complaining are not options, IMHO.

Edit- The DIY super could also invest in other investments like cash (term deposit) or shares (equities). The property strategy is just one option.

Note: please seek professional advice and don't rely on the dribble from some golf hacker on an internet forum.

...

Let’s just get on with playing the game and not worry bout the who, what, why.....


They want to move on quickly. Sweep it under the rug, forgive and forget. Bury it and let the next news cycle take over.

Sorry, but, IMHO, that's not the solution here. Further scrutiny is required and a solid debate. This is ethics, integrity 101 stuff. People need to understand and learn from this type of incident.

It could be turned into a valuable life lesson example for kids, which, I think is what Smith tried to allude to in his press conference when the reported asked what he would say to the kids.

So many integrity and ethic issues arise in business, life, that kids need to be wary of... Public issues and examples like this can be used to teach if the full facts and truth are revealed.

I doubt we'll get the full facts until one of them writes a book in a few years. And, even then, it's likely not the full facts.

Scrutiny and solid debate is one thing you won't get.

With sport and the corporate dollar so intertwined it is vital the sporting body's manage the perception rather than get to the truth and reality.

I am happy with my super as I have just swapped funds to save money overall. I always keep an eye on it, was watching 4 Corners and a story they did on there.

Mate and I were discussing the market positioning of current affairs shows and golf retailers.

We thought Golf World was like A Current Affair, House of Golf like Today tonight and Four Corners like Drummond.

All essential providing the same product but branded differently around price, service and brand (look, feel, perception) but none really any better than the other.

Four Corners has some decent journalists as a select few Drummonds store have some decent sales people.

Cannot agree. Recent investigation on "Francis" has lead to him going from a bad position in to a much worse one. He has ended up out with us but in a locked unit.
The 4 Corners report was totally believable for the consumers but complete bs of the facts and the wellbeing of this young man.
I would like one of the reporters to come out and work with him some time.

Turns out it was Candice Warner who was behind this ball tampering plot.

Must admit to having not seen 4 corners for ages.

 

I have however had a gutful of that fat lesbian and her "supermarket reviews" week on week .... not to mention those kidnapping journo's on the same channel.

 

If anyone gets their news or opinions from current affair type shows, then god help the real world .... :D

 

As for Francis, wasn't he the talking mule?
