The government and Auckland should just say take it or leave it. Dalts and the team are playing the victim card, yet again, as they bank their checks.

Don't believe everything you read in the press, TC. Especially The Herald. ;-)
Yeah if it's coming from the Herald, the opposite is probably true. Big numbers being bandied around. $100m from the Govt has to be in the ball park, although the devil is in the details, and exactly how much of that is cash. Still hopeful the Cup will stay in NZ. Haven't heard any leaks about other potential bids.

Other bids are UK & VLC in Europe and UAE, Asia!

Any numbers from those bids?
Nothing! But I guess we will see those Numbers once the 90-Day Negotiation Period has run out on June 17th! Reasonable Expectation probably is that we will know by months end whether the Cup stays in Auckland or not.

Play the game, National/Auckland Governments, or fuck off as far as the AC is concerned.
By play the game I guess you mean, bend over, grab the ankles and let Dalts have his way?

Part of the game is - here's our offer, don't like it, off you go. In today's world even 100 mill is a big number for a short event, in a sport that means fuck all to most.

Doubt the NZ Gov will offer more than 40 million cash and likely be significantly under that. Not their style and public will be against any more.

If Dalton called their boat "cycle lane" they'd get the full 200m and some.

The actual event may be short, but you're still paying salaries for 3 odd years leading up to it. $100m over 3 years is only $33m per year - which is not that much.......
Plus if it is only $40m in cash with the other 60 "in kind" (this is what we would charge out the base rent as if we didn't give it to you for free etc) its even less

There are 124 (!!!) people listed as part of Team New Zealand, with engineers and design staff probably on close to market rates, I reckon you're looking at a figure probably in excess of 10 million a year just for the staff (that would be 80K average across the entire team, so its hardly outrageous) with the 40 million cash would cover but leaving almost nothing to pay for the costs of the boats, hardware, running costs etc

But if it's not enough then all another country has to do is put a black shirt on with silver leaf and that makes them kiwi we have been told. So it will all be good. In the case of UAE probably not even that as they have already paid their dues

But this is for the event, not team NZ surely. Emirates airlines will pay  for the 124

If GD/Matteo are worth their weight then they will find commercial/private monies, take the offer, and run the AC37 Defense in Auckland. If they are lightweights then.. ???
