NZ sailors are nothing remotely like pommy football fansThe fact of the matter is, call me what ever stupid little childish insult you want, but i'm one of the ONLY people on here who is invested in my team, and therefor, the outcome of the next AC, literally and metaphorically.
I have supported the same team since their inception in 87. Spent my own time and money to support Team NZ. Like English football fans, Kiwi sports fans are intensely loyal toward our teams. Whether domestically or internationally, you pick a team, and you stay loyal to the end.
I don't care about what Dalton does in his spare time, and neither should anyone on here. I don't care if he f**ked the girlfriend of a team mate. As long as it is consensual, who gives a f*ck!?
Most on here who disagree with Dalts, for what ever reason, do so, based on nothing but made up, fake, defamatory conspiracy theories pushed by people like Stingray who likes to present himself as some kind of sailing wise man that people should believe when he speaks, when in fact, most of his tin pot theories are absolute rubbish.
Dalton has achieved what very few people in the world have achieved. He has the loyalty of his team, his sponsors and his supporters. He brought a team from the brink of collapse, to being the most dominant AC team in the last 40 years. For that, he deserves EVERYONES respect.
