    Default America's Cup 2017

    Yay the Swedes! (not the vegetable!) I always loved Swedish Herrings, rollmops etc, but now even more. They beat the crap outta Oracle, and pointed us towards an extra point for the actual America's Cup.

    Go Team New Zealand! We just need to beat the shizza outta the other traitor to win an extra point in the Cup challenge so that the Cheats don't get too much unfair advantage.

    Sorry Dean... we loved you, but you turned to the Dark Side.

    YAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY !!!

    Wait for it though Oracle will no doubt change the rules or something similar to keep an advantage. Would love to see them racing NZ, Oracle make a few mistakes like nose dive which brings these cats to a sudden stop or NZ simply out sail them.

    Yep. I almost don't want to sleep tonight in anticipation of tomorrow's race. But as Gary said, I reckon our Peter and Team should out-sail them in the next vital match.

    Did Barker deliberately lose a point in the World Series in anticipation? Hmm.

    The Boundary penalty looked unforced by Burling

    Tactic's are coming into play I hope but that point is Gold to who ever wins it and TNZ didn't

    What sucks is the defender has a point advantage even before the contest starts ? What's wrong with a even playing field ?

    They wrote the rules. If they can't win on the water, then win on paper.

    yes it's a bit like a 10 lap car race where one car has a lap start over the rest of the field..
