  • Hard News: Rugby has a problem, in reply to Grant McDougall,

    I think to be fair, many recent Blues coaches have encountered the same difficulties with the Blues, as Russell aptly wrote above,

    who are like some sort of experiment in making the least of talent.

    I regret I cannot recall engaging much with their games last year either.

  • Up Front: I Walk the Line,

    Thanks for going into more detail here what you're going through Emma. Offerings empathy sounds shallow but I've certainly been thinking of you and even the cricket has lead to thoughts like "Oh! I hope Emma enjoyed that!"

    Woah. Did not know.

    PRESS RELEASE 12 December 2014

    As at 12.00pm today free-to-air sports channel Sommet Sports will cease transmission.
    Launched 18th July 2013, Sommet Sports has delivered both live and pre-recorded sports on Freeview Channel 14, and Sky Channel 69. Funding initially understood to be available for the channel upon launch had largely never materialised and Sommet has been forced to attempt to deliver a full nationwide broadcast channel on one third of the finance.
    “I am totally gutted at not being able to sustain something that we have long held a fervent desire to deliver to New Zealanders. Sommet was born from a dream to deliver free sports to all kiwis. Sadly this dream is not to be.” says Andrew Reeves, Director of Sommet Sports Ltd. “We have been blown away by the amazing support and consistently growing viewership that we gained in such a short time. We can only thank our loyal fans who have stayed with us until the end.”
    “Being the ‘new kids on the block“, we also struggled to gain a strong foothold with most advertising agencies. This coupled with an acute funding shortage has left us with the sad reality of having to make the difficult call.”
    “I would like to thank OMD, Spark, McDonalds, KFC and Fiat Chrysler group for their support and belief in our vision of delivering ‘Free Sports for Kiwis’ “.
    Message ENDS

  • Up Front: Adric and the Art of Asking,

    I'm going to be thinking of you so much these next few months Emma. Best hopes for best outcome. I was among those glad to join in the death of Adric (and guess I'll still be referring to it the same). I know the treatment effects aren't easy and hope you have someone hearer to be there for you. I'm looking forward to reading the novel; it will make me think of you more.
