    How many challengers will there be?

    No one thought the AC72's were able to match race, and they did. The AC75's will be the same.

    I don't care to go back and look, but suffice to say you havent exactly been accepting of much to do with this cup. SailGP is crap, which is why I haven't been there in a couple of weeks. Funny that most of the discussion in the sailGP thread has been about the AC, even though SailGP fans insist that it has nothing to do with the AC, but refuse to move it because they know without the AC, SailGP would be irrelevant.

    The first boat is nothing but a trial horse. In essence, the first boat is there to ensure the concept works and provides a platform from which to design the second. As we saw with AC72's, the second boats of ETNZ and Oracle were vastly different, and the performance improvement from boat 1 to boat 2 was obvious.

    Well don't believe the guys who said ETNZ won't win the Cup by staying in Auckland instead of going to Bermuda where they are missing out on valuable training time against the other teams. Don't believe the guys who said bikes won't make a difference. Don't believe the guys who said Spithill would eat Burling for breakfast in the pre-starts. Don't believe the guys who said a foiling monohull would never work. Don't believe the guys who said AM felt ripped off when the foiling arms broke and had to be redesigned. Besides, F50 hasn't lived up to its billing and isn't even the subject of this thread. Lord knows how the cry babies in the Larrys circus thread throw their toys when you talk about anything except the disappointment that is the F50. (You know who you are, and come on, you deserved that one)

    Nothing about this has ever looked good to you, the boat is crap to you, the venue is too far away from Europe to be viable, the TV coverage will never be as good as Stan Honeys live line, all skippers are liars, Bertelli is Daltons poodle, Dalton is Bertellis poodle, and you wish everything bad for AC36.

    AC34? That was 6 years ago! There's been another cycle between AC34 and AC36. Time to let it go.

    Unless a protocol amendment is imminent?

    I don't give a shit about whether you give a shit. But here you are bagging Kiwi fans about the shoe being on the other foot, when its clear what was happening at that time was not within the rules anyway. And thats exactly the way it was ruled by the Arbitration panel at the time, So you should be agreeing with me.

    I see you've re-phrased you rhetoric... a few days ago, it was "they're DEAD" now its "Oh they've got no boat at the moment"

    Clearly sour grapes from you. Enjoyable to see your little band of haters exposed as trolls.

    Patrizio Bertelli himself made a special trip to NZ a few eeks ago, to negotiate the amendments to the protocol which allowed the new challengers to participate because he knows it doesn't end with winning. Should he win, it will then be up to him to put on a successful event, meaning he needs to maintain working relationships with current and potential challengers in order for his event to be successful. There is a bigger picture. It doesn't end when you win, its only the beginning.

    Haha "Bitching" the problem I have with that statement is, everything we "Bitched" about, were the same things Dalton was "Bitching" about, which ultimately went to the Arbitration panel where ETNZ won their case, the Commissioner was fired over, ETNZ and were quietly reimbursed for. Its only "theory" if its not true. Unfortunately for you idiots, it was true. All of it. You can call it bitching all you like, but it was all true.
