      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.

    Have gotten back into watching the Eyedeens on a regular basis since the JJ last year after initially watching the Grand Prix series years ago on Sky Sports and really enjoy Killo (gone for good?!) and the boys commentary. Just wondering about some aspects of the league set up compared to the full on Grand Prix days. The boats are all owned by the club. Are the sponsors assigned a boat or do they get to choose the hull they get and are they replaced on at predetermined intervals i.e. every 5 years to keep things fair?? Is there a set budget for sponsoring a boat or do some teams end up with significantly larger budgets than others? Are the rigs funded entirely by the sponsors, they all appear unique to each boat and open to development. If there are no budget constraints this is obviously going to be big advantage to those with more generous sponsors? Are the Auckland boats run in a similar fashion or are they privately owned. Surprised there aren't more international entries for the JJ besides a couple from US/GBR which is a shame.
