    The sweetest victory to me will always be 95. The most ruthless will always be 2000, and the worst defeat will always be San Francisco. Even though 2003 was a disaster it would’ve been a near impossible task to beat Coutts and the former Team NZ, but San Francisco we were one win away, and...

    What? How did we go from winning campaigns to shooting people in the head? You could also argue Dalton wasn’t given a fair shot at it the first time either, yet he made the Cup match first time out and was the first team in 12 years to win a race against a Defender, and went on to win a second...

    I just did. And this just confirms what I said. It lists his achievements, which like I said, the list is long, but he's only ever led a team, as syndicate head once. And it was a disaster.

    I don't need to read Wikipedia to know he probably does.He's been in the AC game a lot longer than Dalts. But Dalton has a better Resume when it comes to leading winning teams.

    I give full credit to Tom Schnakenburg for his achievements in Sailing. But a good designer does not necessarily make a good leader. It was Toms campaign in 2003 when the rest of the team left. And it was that campaign that was a disaster for Team NZ. Not only did they get whitewashed 5 nil, but...

    When Tom Schnakenburg led the Kiwi team, they got white washed 5 nil. Suffice to say, Tom  never led the Kiwi team again.

    He could buy anyone in the game. But he can't offer them what ETNZ can.

    Burling is definitely the TV face of the campaign but this guy is the critical factor:

    Just poking a little fun because your team got sent packing with a record of more zero's than any AC campaign cost? haha Who cares if they're shopping the event? They shopped it around pre this cycle as well, they had a back up plan for Italy, if Auckland for some reason, couldn't host, yet...

    Haha you're like Trump screaming "The election was stolen" even though its clearly a lie, he keeps screaming it from the rafters because he knows the idiots will believe him. Just because you keep saying it, doesn't mean its true. Dalts hasn't put a foot wrong since the cycle started. Is he an...

    Maybe it’s because this America’s Cup is defined in the protocol as the entire event. The different stages aren’t categorised separately so LR’s challenge is valid until the event is decided.

    I guess if AM feel they weren’t represented as the protocol says they should have been, AM may feel they have a grievance. AM’s issue was that LR are living a double standard. They feel the boats are out of control in anything over 21 knots, but when AM suggested the lower wind limit was too low...

    So I guess we can all understand why LR, instead of adhering to the clause in the current protocol stating they were to "Represent all challengers" have decided to adopt a more "Lone wolf" approach to the situation and represent and protect only themselves.

    The rules have been amended many times, in many protocols over the years. If you believe Iain Murray (which many people do) the rules have been amended due to safety concerns. The last time LR were CoR, they waived their veto rights (in good faith) afforded them by the protocol of that cycle...

    There is no mutual consent between challengers. There is only the wording in the protocol.

    The CoR were/ are responsible for protecting the Challengers interests. The Defender is ONLY responsible for the organisation of the Match itself, according to the DoG. The CoR are responsible for the organisation of the Challenger selection series.   As long as a challenge meets all criteria...

    Agreed. However, in doing so, they must "Represent" all challengers, not "listen to" challengers. Any decision is made by mutual consent.
