    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    did the j/11s prove to be a bit of a flop? i liked the concept, but the idea of a detuned j/111 as opposed to a purpose designed model was a bit of a turnoff. sounds like the j99 is going to be more like the jpk1010 as opposed to the sunfast3200, despite targeting the same market.

    Brisbane to Keppel 2018

    heaven forbid! all of a sudden the rock star TP52 programs come under threat of the sydney 38's or worse - a trailer sailor wins the tattersalls cup. lol

    Brisbane to Keppel 2018

    it's an interesting idea, but can't see it ever happening. there have been enough stories of people trying to game measurement system as it is - imagine throwing full race trim into the equation. not to mention all the big boat owners you'd piss off along the way.

    fair point. new offshore rating system to account for fully loaded boats? seems logical so it'll never happen.

    Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    maybe figured with an RP63, suddenly not much use for a Cookson 12?

    Tour de France - 2018

    Ya'll watched "Icarus" on Netflix? heads of drug labs, WADA, etc all say the same thing - they can't catch PED users. the doco focuses heavily on the Russians (with good reason), but basically the tech and know how is there to reliably cheat the system if you're so inclined. damn man look at Lance - not once in his career did he turn up a positive tests. he got busted because his teammates flipped.

    Irrational fears in a business context

    should HTFU or seek employment where flying isn't required.

    World Cup

    I don't mean to come across overly cynical of a generous act - not trying bash or berate the kid when he's gone a donated more money in one act than most could (or would) in a lifetime. good on him indeed. was just putting the dollars in perspective from "the widows offering" point of view - it's easier to give thousands when you have millions.

    World Cup

    it's a nice sentiment, but lets put it in perspective before losing our minds over his generosity. Mbappe currently earns approx $17.5m (Euro) annually. Following the massive exposure from the World Cup, superb team and individual performance, that figure stands to significantly, significantly increase in the near future. his per game fee for the 7 games was total approx $133k (Euro), + win bonus approx $300k (Euro). total $433k (Euro). As a percentage of his annual earnings, that's less that 2.5%. this latest gesture, only continues to ramp up his exposure and value. Really it's money he won't miss, spent on clever marketing.

    World Cup

    the celebration dance from Griezmann after the penalty was pretty classless. apparently not the first time he's done it in a match.

    World Cup

    Neymar needs to take diving classes from Griezmann - that was a 10/10 flop. You can't even say he exaggerated the contact because at the time he fell there was none. blatant cheat. imo that was ball to hand not hand to ball. should not have been a penalty. Croatia seriously unlucky for both calls to go against them like that. Could have been a very different result.
