    Is Silence Good?

    Good in that it probably means EB and LE might be trying to communicate. Its down to those two people. Their respective organizations may even be on the sidelines waiting for an agreement between them on how to even proceed. Doesn't mean any less certainty on what event and when.

    DogZilla in the Doghouse

    I really wouldnt expect much, but, whatever is planned, at this moment, everyone, including the build teams, is "waiting" on EB and LE. My guess.

    Thank You Cory Friedman

    You know, everybody is saying "ten months from the order". Even in a DoG challenge, is there not something that can be mutually agreed? Could not, despite disagreeing on everything else, EB and LE say "ok, its a DoG challenge, in Valencia (or wherever), in ten months (or nine, or eight)". As...

    If Ernie is a Dangerous Gambler

    But it is always fun to play the scenario. I voted yes. I am surprised there are so many 'no'. Maybe Alinghi users are stacking the poll just to screw with us. :P

    :lol: That situation would be could be a very entertaining chapter in the AC history books.

    If Ernie is a Dangerous Gambler

    If it is officially revealed that CZ does not exist, it would show that EB is not only a big gambler, but also the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE. After all the talk about wanting to "settle things on the water". If he didn't even bother to prepare for a defense from a DoG challenge, all while BOR were...

    NY Court of Appeals rules in favor of BMW Oracle

    I still think the magnanimous interest-of-the-sport-and-other teams for both parties to do would be to. 1- Begin negotiations for a regular M/C protocol with event as soon as possible, say 2010. 2- At the same time plan the DoG challenge in multihulls, to happen before the M/C event 3- Both...

    What should Clean do with the donated money?

    Still like to see a serious effort for an AC34 challenge. More time, more donations and serious sponsorship? I still think the idea of an internet based syndicate has lots of appeal.

    Was BOR90 ENTIRELY built in the US?

    Looks like something out of an early sci-fi movie!

    Was BOR90 ENTIRELY built in the US?

    Sorry, I was referring to "building winches with leg power". Meaning, the act of "using legs to build winches". Not operating winches with legs, which is probably what jorgie meant. :lol: back to our regular thread...

    Didnt DZ's carbon nomex come from the UK? Or is that going too nit-picky? :ph34r:

    Was BOR90 ENTIRELY built in the US?

    That would be tough, unless you had opposable thumbs on your feet. Did they employ monkeys?

    Was BOR90 ENTIRELY built in the US?

    I suspect there is video documentation of the boom being built in the states. You probably have it.

    I would seriously consider attending. Support the home team. BTW, anyone know if an FAA helicopter rating is internationally recognized?

    Was BOR90 ENTIRELY built in the US?

    You could argue against both teams on the "domestic build" requirement. But best not to dilly-dally in such details. As seemed implied by the court: "go sail your race". Let the lawyers argue the stupid details afterward. Anyway, it would behoove BOTH teams to avoid raising this issue. The one...
