Re the 'your view's section in the herald . . it's best not to read them . . it is afterall the online equivilant of crap talk back aka newstalk ZB.
Not only is the 'no jersey swapping' greedy, it's also plain stupid.
How much 'brand juice' would Adidas have recieved via the Portugal side parading around with their most prized posession - an All Blacks jumper.
Good to see you guys covering the rugby. I hope and believe that the AB's will win the damm thing, but if I had a dollar for everytime I felt like that in the lead up to a rugby world cup, I'd be . . .well not rich, but at least $4 better off :)
I thought about us losing this tournament and how/why this would happen and blogged about it at sportsthought.com
It's like Sky thinks only dummies watch league, and that anything other than dumbed down cliche ridden pre/post match comments would alienate the fan base.
How wrong they are.
As I am paying Sky to watch the Warriors the least they can do is find presenters who can provide insight. How hard can it be?
