1. The outhaul. Well, did it meet the rules or not? If it didn't then Ineos' geniuses should have know it didn't. No point crying over that one.
2. Delay: in the end the racing was concluded before the cut-off date. Delays is a moot point. Ineos lost. Move on FFS.
3. Wind limit: top limit now 1 measly knot less. So what? The weekend's wind was what is expected in Auckland during this time of the year. Blame the design team (as Ainslie has done repeated rather than face up to his own shortcomings), not PPLR/COR.
4. Using the rules ... well, yes, this is why rules exist, no?
