      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.

Where is Tom Ehman?

Recommended Posts

Lots of chatter between insiders that TE was fired. Can anyone confirm this?

 

Fired from what, exactly?

 

As Vice Comm he was with Comm. Norbert B. representing the GGYC at the Port Commission meeting on Tuesday, so if he's out of some position it's unlikely that one. I posted a link to that Ferry Building meeting somewhere, it's a good watch.

...and in other cup related news...and this is rumor, and nothing but rumor, but it has
come from several sources supposedly in the inner circle, but repeat at this point
just a rumor:

Sources say that Russell Coutts was unhappy that Tom Ehman and Iain Murray worked together
to get Hamilton Island YC the position to be Challenger of Record.

Supposedly, Mr. Ehman was relieved of his duties as a consequence, by Mr Coutts.

Unclear if Iain Murray is effected in anyway however it is also unclear If Mr. Murray has connections
with Challenger of Record (Hamilton Island YC) if that effects standings of being an impartial head committee
member as part of the ACRM. It may well be that one stressful cycle of managing the America's Cup is more than enough!

Again, it's an unconfirmed rumor...If it's incorrect, our apologies in advance...but it's come from various sources and tem seem consistent...

Thanks. Interesting that the rumor is going around but again, TE is the Vice Comm of GGYC which is a members-elected position that RC has no authority over so..?

 

RC has always wished the lawyer types, the fix-it men, would just disappear as if that would also make the necessity to have them disappear. Said a couple pointed things in the SportProMedia article about that subject; it was in response to a question but maybe he said a little more off the record and that is what's spreading, or growing legs.

edit, this one

This may be outside of GGYC and his staff position - two separate roles.

 

And I'd assume if it was with GGYC, RC's influence with LE might play a role. Not the first time a ballot box has been stuffed at the club and the results locked up.

Yes, am curious too, why not?

Well pick up the phone - not too hard.

 

If you want to put the rumor to rest, easy to do.

Yes, I could try calling but PH suggests he already did and so I am not going to bug the guy suddenly over something he likely already answered. He must surely have better things going on, on a Friday eve, than take a call from me.

 

Again, RC would have little to no power to have suddenly un-elected TE even if he'd wanted to and so the rumor sounds a little dubious.

I'd think if it were nothing more than a rumor he'd be happy to squelch it which would take all of 3 minutes.

 

Not sure this is solely limited to his role with the club, but given politics stranger things have happened, although not immediately especially in a private club.

http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2013/09/16/americas-cup-kiwis-take-officials-cheating-claim-cup-jury/

 

I know it is Scuttlef*ck but haven't seen any update

 

Ehman made his own veiled claims of cheating to a journalist from The Independent in London. But Team NZ have rejected the claim and were preparing an application to the jury under the same Article 60 of the protocol (bringing the Cup into disrepute) and Rule 69 of the rules of sailing (gross misconduct) as were taken against Oracle. - See more at: http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2013/09/16/americas-cup-kiwis-take-officials-cheating-claim-cup-jury/#sthash.1sgcGviK.dpuf

 

Or was this more rumor planting?

The guy apologizes for not being sure.

Only a hack would do that. He's just throwing crap against the wall and hoping...

 

Not his style, he's a stand up guy with lots of contacts at StFYC, GGYC and Oracle. No reason for him to sling crap.

Mainstream American media, even the likes of the NY Times, WSJ, The Economist, Wired Magazine, did a helluva lot of good coverage. Dozens of articles, from economics to personalities to technical. Lots via Bernie Wilson through the AP. Front page articles in the SF Chron, even made the front page of Sports in the Seattle Times and surely many others. That lady writer from the SJ Mercury News was especially good. Matt Sheahan, Kimball Livingston, Michele Slade, SailRacingMagazine and other sailing media did too.

 

So did the NZ Herald, Otega Times and TVNZ, aside from the too-frequent slurring and conspiracy crapola on the fringes.

 

Rennmaus alone far, far out eclipsed SailingAnarchy, at the German version of the site. Articles, photos, personal accounts from on the scene, press credentials, media RIB trips out during racing.

 

C'mon Clean. SA's FP coverage was simply atrocious. Insulting, demeaning, stupid, you name it! Nice to do a blurry Skype interview 2 weeks after the conclusion of many weeks of racing but it's no bandaid. SA failed miserably this time, it's been ridiculous.

Yes, I absolutely realize how, unlike the 'niche' AC33, AC34 just didn't work for SA. Lots of reasons and excuses - finances as you suggested, being overshadowed by massively more talented media power, blah blah blah. But none of those plausible excuses deny the fact that SA was completely AWOL from very arguably the most massive Sailing Event in Years, possibly the biggest one in Decades by reasonable measures.

 

A real sailing site, with real cred, with any claim to be at the very forefront of the sailing world, would have beat out the best of the best of those '500' and brought it home in proud SA style.

 

Instead, SA completely blew it, didn't even try, got blown out by every other name-able sailing presence on the web, while cowering behind mindlessly stupid criticisms as cover for the ineptitude.

 

Entire threads have been started over this. To deny the fact is just more ass-in-the-air Ostrich head in the sand behavior.

 

If the supposed cause of the AWOL was the $10K in legal fees hit as you suggested, well then maybe that's an omen and we all need to move on, support those sites that actually did immerse in the weeks of intensity that AC34 was. If even Rennmaus can do it for her second AC in a row, then wth is your real excuse for missing the boat so completely?

 

That's right. You have no excuse. SA effing blew it and rightfully look like idiots floating in the wake. No insight, no experience, no real time coverage, no presence. Grade F. You could have outshone everyone and blew the chance.

^ Thanks, I think..

 

The more niche, grassroots sailing events are an okay slant for SA to be groveling over but to be editorializing with such incessant negativity without an ounce of effort to get in depth while doing so looked, and was, cowardly and ridiculous.

 

AC34 absolutely had everything Sailing, in full measure. SA completely blew it, and unfortunately did even worse by the distant, thoroughly uninformed, constant disparagement instead of Wow recognition of both finalists and those Races in the Match. SA is digging a hole into just silly irrelevance and ignorance of where the sport's future is being led into.

 

Clean, yes: I will seriously consider your challenge above to help take AC interest to elsewhere, thanks for the invitation. A fresh start for all of us might be just the ticket.

I appreciate the effort you put into what you do for SA, Clean, but I too am a bit confused as to why SA had no presence, zero, at AC34. The Ed couldn't have hitched a ride up the road to SF for at least 1 weekend of the LVC or Final? Not even recruit someone like KK to do something in SA's name?

 

The AC went Anarchy and SA wasn't there. Disappointing is all I got.

I can agree with WH here. SA seemed to be all over the initial excitement of multi's in the AC, and the Little AC getting on foils, but there was eniough time to get to the AC like WH says and then get over to the LAC. SA gave some press, but did throw a lot of rocks at an event SA rooted for early.

 

All the slamming on the FP was not just 'Anarchy'. Sure, ACEA etc. made some nice bumbling along the way but the match, when it was on, was a range of emotions, from thrilling to utter misery when ETNZ was cleaning-up to the change of OR taking over and winning, depending on who you were rooting for.

 

SA should have tapped into that with the 'alternative' resources that it has available, not the usual media approach.

 

Question: What percentage does this forum provide in driving the numbers on SA? Do the core posters in this forum matter?

You can look at this way. Ehman was never really part of ACEA until this year, and then only informally. He was brought in to help insure that the story was about stuff that mattered. After the presser led by Tim Jeffery when Bart was killed, did we ever see Jeffery again? Nope. Who led the press conferences after each Cup match? Jeffery was nowhere to be seen.

 

Fact is almost all of the contracts for the team and ACEA ended after the Cup, with the exception of those required to do maintenance of things, including admin maitenance.

 

Ehman is still on the scene, and the story that started this thread is just a rumor. Lots of things are in flux, and it remains to be seen where anyone ends up in the next couple of months.

You can look at this way. Ehman was never really part of ACEA until this year, and then only informally. He was brought in to help insure that the story was about stuff that mattered. After the presser led by Tim Jeffery when Bart was killed, did we ever see Jeffery again? Nope. Who led the press conferences after each Cup match? Jeffery was nowhere to be seen.

 

Fact is almost all of the contracts for the team and ACEA ended after the Cup, with the exception of those required to do maintenance of things, including admin maitenance.

 

Ehman is still on the scene, and the story that started this thread is just a rumor. Lots of things are in flux, and it remains to be seen where anyone ends up in the next couple of months.

 

 

Next time you talk to him, can you tell him to stop wearing his sunglasses on the top of his head when he is inside. It makes him look like an even bigger dick than he really is.

 

Not only that. Tell him to take his hands out of his pockets when at an event to discuss someone's death.

 

 

Any wonder why, I saw - none of you in the Innovation Lounge ^_^:mellow:-_-:lol:

 

^^^ shudda jus been 3 lines ^^^ ;)

Thanks. Interesting that the rumor is going around but again, TE is the Vice Comm of GGYC which is a members-elected position that RC has no authority over so..?

 

RC has always wished the lawyer types, the fix-it men, would just disappear as if that would also make the necessity to have them disappear. Said a couple pointed things in the SportProMedia article about that subject; it was in response to a question but maybe he said a little more off the record and that is what's spreading, or growing legs.

edit, this one

I don't think so. Remember GGYC specifically altered their bylaws to give the team representatives control of all things AC related. So his position is probably appointed by the team and answerable to the team CEO (RC) not the membership. I don't have time to read through the by-laws, but you should double check it to confirm whether it is a team or member appointed position.

His position with ACEA was manager for external affairs which could well have involved him in the CoR - if anything that is the position in question here, not flag at GGYC.

: I will seriously consider your challenge above to help take AC interest to elsewhere, thanks for the invitation. A fresh start for all of us might be just the ticket.

They could definitely use you at pressure drop or sailnet. When you're ready to go, just start posting links here to your new favorite place and we'll be sure your IP gets a nice and rapid sendoff

:P

FFS, Clean. Stop being such a dick. A little less ego from SA would go such a long way right about now. You guys took an angle about the event. You could have been right, but you ended up being the odd guys out, looking in. What's the downside in admitting that?

He popped round my place earlier today for a beer, seems pretty upbeat.

Probably glad to be out of the heat after all the screw-ups, ADM, failed and retracted protests, etc.

being a dick is in my job description! Truth is Chauch, Stingray's constant harpy-ism is over the top and I am tired of it; it's personal and I'll not be taking it from him any more.

Seriously, though, Stinger banned or suspended? That is just plain lame. The guy is passionate about his positions, but I can hardly ever remember him picking a fight with anyone. If the theme of this website is supposed to be anarchy, then I would think dissenting opinion that is not just characteristic of trolling might be allowable.

 

What a bad joke.

Stingray RIP:

 

He was a lone voice standing up for the honorable Ian Murray during the AC34 rudder gate fiasco.

 

Picture the lone individual standing firm against an onslaught of tanks at Tiananmen Square. Now change those tanks to tractors.

 

Get the picture?

It is personal. i know Stingray and used to respect him as an intelligent speaker and strong debater, even when our opinions differed substantively. I watched as he regressed over the past year to become more and like childish and fervent, relying on jingoism, bullshit, and straw man arguments as he defended his favorite team. Fine, whatever.

 

But for more than a month now he has attacked me personally for a litany of things in post after post after post, and I wrote the other day that I was fucking tired of it, and that I wouldn't take much more of it.

 

Stinger said he would take his bat and ball and find a website he liked better. Apparently he did.

Absolutely true, but there are still limits even though we almost never reach them.

 

I believe SWS was banned by the Ed for a bit this year for a similar thing; constant and nasty attacks against one poster for a sustained period. It's harassment, and we don't like it whether it is against us or a random anarchist.

Try again clean - got tired of the incessant kiwi political bullshit over the past year at the same time business took a major uptick. So much so that I missed the last three finals races along with BBS because I was out of the country.

 

I've told Scott on one past occasion during AC33, much more heated that the last year, that I would voluntary leave if he thought it was appropriate. His response was "no problem - fuck em".

 

Given the political shit (you with Cayard) and politically motivated character assassinations (IM) that take place around here my criticism of those that continually attack OR and the US that have driven long time posters away on multiple occasions pale in comparison

 

Maybe this site is now "politically correct Lite" Get real, and find other sources of information on Oracle while your at it. Good luck with that one.

On second thought clean, why don't go ahead and flick me and see if I give a shit.

 

You can wallow in your own scum with the waning kiwi losers and continue to bash the AC and everyone else you hate so much.

 

You never liked the AC anyway, and have stated so several times, so let your actions meet your words.

Then you really weren't paying attention. Or possibly, I've been paying too much attention. He's plenty of history of playing the man not the ball and I could reel off a whole list of people with whom he's had feuds. Could but won't.
