Imitation may be the best form of flatery, but it seldom works.
Absolutely right LB - the Galaxy v Phoenix promotion was magic - who'd have thought that soccer was get a 35,000 crowd in New Zealand. It was professionally promoted, it was at the best sporting venue in NZ, and it was against a credible opposition. By comparison, the Auckland match was a pale imitation, promoted by a council at a crap venue and involved a team of has-beens and never-wasses. Little wonder it lost a truck-load of money.
'claimed that the loss would not hit ratepayers ... ring-fenced as a trading loss'[insert beer ad here] Bollocks!
I heard Winder quoted by Larry Williams about the ring fencing PMofNz. I wonder if he has heard of the effects of compound interest which Edison said was `the greatest invention of all time'.Great when it works for you - a killer when it is working against you.I am pleased to live in Hawkes Bay and not in the greater Auckland area.
Haven't seen this in the media here but The Batchelor is filming in NZ.He is a babe!http://tvwatch.people.com/2009/02/17/bachelor-jason-blogs-about-the-toughest-cut-yet/
There must be something wrong with my feminine side anon, but Jason does nothing for me - neither does Beckham. I must be too straight!!
Our take on this ;It was never going to work, for so many reasons.
Very good LB - I rated you a 4 - it would have been a 5 but for that dreadful picture of Beckham's missus - I nearly regurgitated my dinner!
