  1. Race had nothing to do with it, and please don't imply that I'm a racist. AJ Oliver played the race card for no reason other than to stir up some sort of political discussion in this thread about the Volvo Ocean Race. I'm also not offended by his comments, I'm annoyed by his inability to stay on topic. It's ok if you have nothing to add to the conversation, but don't try to change the topic. Those of us who spend time in Newport and the surrounding area know exactly how the police work up there, we understand that Rhode Island is not just the Ice Cream cones and t-shirt shops on Thames street, and if you stop and look around you'll notice that the population of RI is increasingly diverse.
  2. You are the fucking worst. I can't imagine any situation where I would enjoy having a conversation with you, regardless of how much booze was at my disposal. I hope that you don't rant like this in person.
  3. I wasn't there, so I'm going off what I was told by someone involved in the VOR Newport stopover. Then again, I was also told that the donations were made to the MLK Jr. center, and not the Boys and Girls Club of Newport County as reported in the Newport Daily News. And yes, I believe the Newport police would have acted exactly the same regardless of skin tone. They dispatched their entire on-duty force (9 officers) to control the situation. This isn't some flyover state where race plays a part in every day interactions, this is a waterfront town in liberal New England that only cares about bringing in tourism dollars.
  4. First of all, they weren't in the Candy Store at 1 AM...they were in the Boom Boom Room. There aren't $55 steaks served in the basement, there are moderately cold beers and piss warm shots served. The floor is sticky, the music is loud, and there is a camera focused on the dance floor so you don't miss a minute of the action while you're waiting for your drink. Based on the story I was told, the fire alarm went off due to some sort of smoke or vapor triggering the alarm. It's 1 AM in Newport, everyone is hammered outside of the Cookhouse and stupidity occurred. No victims, no damage, just a bunch of hangovers and a few regrets in the morning. This shit happens almost every night in Newport. The donations were made as a way of apologizing to the community, not because of some corrupt legal system. Yes, Rhode Island is historically the most corrupt state in the Union, but that really has nothing to do with this incident. And for all of you conspiracy theorists declaring this "white privilege" or implying that the Newport police department would have controlled the situation differently if anyone involved was a person of color, you can all fuck right off. Stop turning every story into a political drama. If anything, you should be happy that the women were behaving the same as the men and treated as equals by the cops.

    NYYC could take two of the club Sonars, put some foils on them and have internal trials.

    That's a mighty high throne you've got there. So tell us, what have you and your organization done for the sport?

    If anyone is looking for a tender, looks like the Coastal Queen could be yours for a price.

    Lowest #s since Spring 2013, but not as bad as it was looking a month ago.

    Numbers are looking a little better now...still light. If you're not coming this year, but have in the past few years, what could the event chairs do to get you back next year?

    Weak name and awful logo. At first I thought the logo was numerous dildos entering a welcoming asshole, but someone recently pointed out that it might have more pagan origins.

    Sorry, me again, just fact checking here...Blackwater was founded by Erik Prince, brother of Betsy DeVos. So here's how those deaths are connected to "American Magic" American Magic Syndicate NYYC and Bella Mente Quantum Racing Assocation - with Hap Fauth as CEO Doug Devos - Quantum Dick Devos - Brother of Doug Betsy Devos - wife of Dick DeVos Erik Prince - former Navy Seal and founder of Blackwater Blackwater (now known as Academi) - a contractor for the CIA Guards employed by Blackwater who killed Iraqi civilians Seems like a bit of a stretch to me. I do like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon though, always fun.

    I don't mean to interrupt your rant with facts, but the campaign is backed by Hap Fauth and Doug Devos (not Richard, his father). Doug is not married to Betsy, that's his brother Dick Devos. I'm sure that family trees are confusing for you. As for the Amway logo, it certainly wouldn't be the firm's first foray into athletic sponsorship, but hopefully the syndicate can pull in some other sponsors that you may find more reputable.
