The run on currency lasted about a month before dropping back to normal levels. What is strange, however, is that it has not returned into the system subsequently.
Re the Slater mash-up vid.
I might be really naive, but I can’t see where the political gain is in it anyway... Makes Anderton look like some kind of Oracle.
I understood that bankers have an abiding interest in taking LSD...
Shorthand for Pounds, Shillings and Pence.
show me actual evidence that the IRB decreed "waterfront". I've seen nothing to support that.
I’d be really surprised if the IRB got that specific.
Whether or not the NZRU offered Fan Zones (remember that all centres will have them) as part of its proposal; it’s not an unreasonable requirement. It shouldn’t be a particularly taxing one either
They’ve played ODIs at that indoor ground in Melbourne.
I thought us taxpayers were doing a fair amount of underwriting/contributing as well ...
You bet we are. But if it weren’t for Toshiba etc, we’d be doing a lot more of it.
And our ads will be on the side of the roads next to airports.
@Kyle; it’s only T20 cricket. A rugby field should suffice...
Being an indoor stadium gives Dunedin the ability to bid for events that nowhere else will be able to host. Not sure what that would be; boxing? T20 cricket in winter? But something will pop up.
The thing the Dunedin stadium will have going for it is that it’s unique in the country. A bit like the Caketin is unique in being right in the middle of town.
As I’ve said on here before the Caketin broke even for this year by about April.
Most of the revenue came from Rugby sevens, sell-out football matches in an Australian domestic league, a food show, and T20 cricket.
None of those events had been dreamed of when it was commissioned in the 1990s
Mastercard, ANZ, Emirates, Heineken. Toshiba, Brancott Estate
And, given that they’re underwriting the whole thing, I really can’t see the issue with their ads replacing existing ones for 6 weeks.
Are they really more evil than Westpac, Tui, Hanover Finance etc that have tended to dominate grounds over the last few years?
Can we please get over the notion that Clean Stadiums are an evil thing? Lets move on from 2002.
Every major international event, not just sporting ones, has a Clean Stadiums concept. It’s just a modern reality.
