      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    29.3 Covered in entirety by the Defender, or at least the COR 38.7 Ok - we'll see on that one 53.1/20.1 AC35 was fairer, where the COR/D selected the Chairman and then the Competitor forum were involved and active in the final appointments - this is no longer the case. In the case of any arbitration it's weighted heavily in the favour of the COR/D - 36th protocol is a bit of a mess in this area. lol @ flickr

    Agree, but if thats the case GD shouldn't have spent the majority of the Protocol Announcement repeating that its a fair protocol. Anybody who has read and understood the protocol and is then is then subsequently honest knows that its not a fair protocol at all.
  3. AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    It might be too late but ... 29.3 It doesn't seem fair that the teams have to pay for any event shortfall. This could be an unlimited expense at the result of other organisations overspend. This is like signing a blank check 38.7 COR/D Access to film teams training - that doesn't seem fair 53.1 COR/D make up the arbitration panel with no independent member - this doesn't seem fair 20.1 COR/D to appoint an "independent" regatta director - that doesn't seem fair Grant - you make many references in your press conference to this being a fair protocol - but on a quick read it appears anything but.
  4. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Winner can have the pleasure of saying I told you so .... I'm just a poor boy from a poor family
  5. "National Cleavage Day"

    This is totally off topic - not any cleavage in sight
  6. 3 ... The red mist descended on shore after the dock incident. Apparently the warranty on his locker was rendered null and void
  7. AC 36 Protocol

    OK, it's clear to me now. Now I see where Indio is coming from.

    It's a good interview, and I'm sure a good book. He says it like it is, whilst being fair and entertaining along the way. The America's Cup is better for having Jimmy in it. Kiwi's may want to hurl a tonne of sheep shit at him - but they'd miss him if he was gone.
  9. i don't think his ego would let him step off
  10. AC 36 Protocol

    I think you'll find they are Bermudian kids - it was an inclusive program across all schools on the island . Yes, the Bermudian kids are still sailing - local Bermudian press confirming that the program with run for several years. http://bernews.com/2017/07/the-legacy-of-the-ac-endeavour-program/
  11. We can only go on information provided by existing BAR press statements "Land Rover BAR committed to Challenge in the 36th America’s Cup with funding secured for the next campaign" http://land-rover-bar.americascup.com/en/news/403_LAND-ROVER-BAR-will-continue-the-journey-to-Bring-the-Cup-Home.html
  12. ...and highlights on BBC. It was just like any other sport though ... rights holder requests bids and highest bidder wins. BBC didn't bid higher than BT Sport. Do you think that LE should have paid for all the Broadcast so the Brits could watch it free? or Do you think that the BBC should have used more of the taxpayers money to outbid BT Sport? Land Rover seem happy with exposure - they are staying with the team for another cycle. I haven't seen any high level sponsors pull out - there maybe some but I haven't seen any yet - which points to them being happy with eyeballs & coverage.
  13. AC 36 Protocol

    You're confusing longevity with continuity
  14. AC 36 Protocol

    I guess we'll see what happens then
