  • Hard News: The Disingenuous Press,

    Tonight, Paul Henry hosts 50 Year of TV News.

    TVNZ up to its old tricks again putting it on at the exact time as the far superior Prime series.

    Yes quite right Sofie.

    Having seen that haka from the Maori game you really do realise what a bunch of numpties the haters must be, eh?

  • Hard News: Friday Beep Test,

    – using conventional radio broadcast equipment to deliver data -- isn't without precedent on a technical level, but I don't believe anyone has crafted such a compelling application from the concept.

    Wow! just wow that is just outstanding.
    I'm back to being a sports apathetic.

    Gilliard always sounded more like an Aussie to me.

    Giovanni, apparently

    Ahh the Latin luvver extraordinaire..
    Lock up your wimmin folk, for they are not to be trusted, when he is aroused. Oh sorry if its too early n'all. mental images etc...

    3D TV definitely needs a dedicated AV room.

  • Speaker: Knuckleball,

    Yeah, but to me there's a world of difference between a punch and falling over for effect, which mebbe speaks to differences in human psyches.
    No offence n'all.
    I'd prefer two refs as a possible solution.

  • Speaker: Knuckleball,

    I'd have thought a good compromise solution would be:
    * the referee calls it as he sees it;
    * anyone caught out on the TV goes before the football judiciary facing fines, or match bans, or whatever it is that people face in football.
    Yep, exactly.

    That's kind of a rugby solution, there must be a way to sort it out on the night.
    Sure a fine/match ban for persistent diving, but most of it is spur of the moment stuff.

    It kept Shakespeare in business for a while, that English treachery.
    So Mr Semmens heard of Captain Pugwash's first mate.
    I jest.
    This jocular sports stuff is kinda fun ...... for a while.

  • Speaker: Knuckleball,

    Diving is, in my opinion, the reason why football will struggle to be taken seriously here and in to an extent in the US

    It could mean a change in the rules and it would be odd if the ref blew for a foul and then checked with a video ref and was wrong. What do you do then?
    A drop ball?
    But Sep Blatter doesnt like that new fangled technology. So figuring out a solution wont happen till he F's off.
    And all the psychological stuff about under dogs.... underperforming favourites makes my head hurt.
