      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.

    Are they? Haven't heard anything from them but last time they were so into "we are in this for the long haul" that I would suspect they will be there when the gun goes off.

    "No one claims he had the 'reins' in AC34, the helm and the mic' yes" And don't forget he held the sheet for the mainsail as well during manoeuvres

    Can't see JS being skipper. His performance last cup was just not up there with Blair and he has this thing about his way or no way (ie not shedding weight to help the grinders) I can see a backup role and maybe sailing coach advisory type role.

    My eyesight is not as good as it once was but, does that say 714m? That seems like a long way behind.

    Welcome back Jasper. I see you have been away. Hope all is good apart from the marxist Govt down there in Wgtn.

    "I think even BAR would have given them a run for their money..." Ouch!

    Fugitive pirate involved in Sir Peter Blake's murder caught after 15 years on the run One of the fugitive killers of record-breaking yachtsman Sir Peter Blake has been captured by police after more than 15 years on the run. Jose Irandir Cardoso was arrested after military police who intercepted him at a routine stop on the Brazilian island of Marajo found he was carrying his brother's ID and discovered his true identity after checking his fingerprints at a local station. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11995692 Arsehole!

    Ex-employee must pay $5000 for travelling to America's Cup while on sick leave An Auckland human resources manager has been ordered to pay her ex-employer $5000 for travelling to Bermuda to watch the America's Cup while on paid discretionary leave for an alleged illness. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11991869&ref=NZH_FBpage

    Gotta agree with you there. Folau is a good Wallaby but does not rank internationally. Just go back to last year when our new boy (Rieko Ioane) ran around him to score in the corner for the 1st(?) Bledisloe

    SClarke They are winding you up. As long as you and I believe in TNZ that is all that matters.

    and why do they have their sails up inside the viaduct?

    Mr America's Cup on AC75 cost and Brit's recent hirings Then Conner moves over to the America's Cup - an event with which he is synonymous - and both gets back onto the previous theme of the AC75 being a very expensive boat - forgetting that a team developing the class rule is the same one which ran and won the last America's Cup on a budget of just $78million - the lowest at the 35th America's Cup in Bermuda, with only Groupama Team France having less. Next he covers the latest hirings by Land Rover BAR, saying in a round about way that he thinks the Brits had management problems last time. He picks up on the hiring of 34 year Cup veteran and four times America's Cup winner Grant Simmer. Conner says he thinks LandRover BAR have made a smart move in adding to their management team. "He (Ben Ainslie) has the Queen and the Princess on his side, but you've still got to manage 100 guys." including podcasts http://www.sail-world.com/news/201138/Am-Cup--Dennis-Conner-on-the-Cup-latest-and-WOXI
