  • Hard News: Art and the Big Guy,

    Hadyn yawns and rubs his eyes after a sick day in bed, clicks on the internet and checks the PA System.

    He is shocked and stunned that today's topic is rugby and art, and somehow, in this country, we have let the artists take over the thread :D

    Seriously though re: Rugby
    I think Kit talked about it back on page 2. I've written and ranted about this a lot on my blog and my podcast. (pimpin') Also note the date on the blog post (2005)

    The SANZAR union doesn't have the market size enough to compete with the northern unions. South Africa is the country that could come the closest, as Australia's audience is split with league.

    But however we might try small market teams can never compete with large market teams...unless we change everything.

    A new competition with 16 teams based in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Argentina. The teams don't have to be split evenly between the countries but there should be a provision for some kind of extension. This brings in big markets and teams that can beat each other.

    Now here's the real kicker you add in a...wait for it...SALARY CAP and REVENUE SHARING system. Woooooooooo!

    That should help teams compete to keep players around for longer.

    ps. I like artists, pay 'em proper!

  • Hard News: Biting back at Bill,

    you'd think both channels would hire reporters who didn't have to have the story explained to them every time

    I gave up on TV reporters a loooong time ago. And presenters...Arghhh. I just want to punch that Alastair Wilkinson (that's the smarmy guy on TV3 eh?) in the nose.

  • 180 Seconds with Craig Ranapia,

    Since he's been mentioned a bit (despite me leaving out Spirited Away) did y'all know that there is a Ghibli Studio Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo?

    It's a bit of a hassle getting there (including having to show your passport for some reason) but well worth it.
    you're not allowed to take photos inside but here are snaps I got off just outside. 1, 2, 3
