Have to say, you don't seem that supportive of TNZ. Less than I am in fact, and I'm the other side of the world. If it was RNZYS v RYS my loyalties would be split. But FFS come on your a Kiwi.Two things:
1. Etnz still have to win it.
2. I have never believed the AC nor any other sporting event confers the sorts of financial benefits that get bandied around. Same goes for any public project such as museums etc.
