      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.

    Hadn't looked at the entries for a little while but noticed that the new MAxi72, Cannonball has entered. Would be awesome if a few more of those guys Maxi72's came along. Their recent world champs were super close.
  2. Hopefully it's like nothing we've ever seen before. At this same point before AC35 who would have guessed what the ETNZ boat would look like ? Just be patient and enjoy the ride. It'll be fun.
  3. The front fell off

    I disagree with you. I actually believe that it was in fact the back that fell off..................
  4. Is this the Figaro III?

    Could be interesting in a big fleet on a short line racking up for a start. Bye Bye foil.

    I reckon they should just take the grey areas right out of it and just write it directly into the protocol........J.Spithill cannot be part of AC36 unless he's selling ice creams or hot dogs in the grand stands.

    So how long until OR-Xerox try and wheel out the lawyers or lodge a bullshit protest, it would be their only hope but a complete waste of time.

    Just watched the races again that I taped this morning and in Race 8 on the 2nd upwind leg (5/7), not that long after OTUSA had gone around the bottom mark stuck to the water doing 10 knots heading out towards the boundary. Slingsby gives an almighty roar of "FUCK" and then goes ballistic on the grinders. Not a happy camper. Sorry imbedding YouTube footage at that point is a bit beyond me. It's a fucking ripper though, a lot of venom in it. He almost flicked the other bloke off the grinders. Anyone else pick it up ??

    As a sports loving Aussie who loves nothing better than handing the kiwi's their arses on a plate in any sport (I'm more talking netball than rugby currently) I can honestly say I have never felt so patriotic for another country other than my own before. It's quite bizarre. I've had goose bumps watching this thing the while way through so far. My 8 yo. son & I have been so excited getting up to watch it each morning. He has told mum she needs to sleep upstairs tonight with my daughter in the guest room cause he's sleeping downstairs with Dad tonight. He told the girls, we're getting up early to see the kiwi's kick arse in Bermuda tomorrow and we don't want to wake you guys up. He's says though after the kiwi's win both races tomorrow, we're all sleeping in front of the TV tomorrow night watch them win the cup. He's been googling the kiwi national anthem and he also wants to know if he can have the day off school to celebrate. Watching this whole thing from a far over the past few years, the only decent outcome is for the kiwi's to take the cup back to the land of the long white cloud. They will make a movie about this shit and the adversity that they have overcome. It would be a fairy tale, Cinderella story. It would be a win for the good guys. No one can ever say a bad word about their whole campaign, except they're just too fucking good in a whole heap of different way. If/When it happens, I'll be booking my tickets over to Auckland and taking the whole family for a month long holiday to hopefully see a fully fledged Aussie team busting their balls as you fucking kiwis have to take the auld mug back off you, under the old traditional rules, they way it used to be. But until then................. "GO YOU FUCKING KIWIS BRING THIS FUCKING THING BACK HOME TO THE LONG WHITE CLOUD, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THE RIGHT THING TO DO"
