  • Danielle,

    See you there, Kyle! (If I can, um, manage to leave the baby with my mother for 21 hours without having some sort of conniption. The jury is still out on that.)

  • Christopher Dempsey,

    I don't mind it. Melbourne has an ultra-large screen above Federation Square, and it makes a wonderful public space.

    That it does... watched Tennis Open there in Feb this year. Lovely atmosphere. The free wifi helped enormously.

    I'm not aiming for the abstract here. It's a simple enough question. Snedden is quoted as saying they have to deliver a fan zone on the waterfront. It would be nice to know if that was decreed by the IRB or mad-dog McCully or if it's not true.

    Decreed by IRB I understand but Russell could be correct - we offered, they accepted. Inflated and 'handled' beyond all recognition by McCully.

    Mystery is why didn't Snedden come out earlier? Was Napoleon McCully sitting on him?

  • Sacha,

    Again, show me actual evidence that the IRB decreed "waterfront". I've seen nothing to support that.

    I’d be really surprised if the IRB got that specific.

    Whether or not the NZRU offered Fan Zones (remember that all centres will have them) as part of its proposal; it’s not an unreasonable requirement. It shouldn’t be a particularly taxing one either

  • Sacha,

    Fan Zones are specified, and as you say should be no big deal.

    Same, but it's probably going to take a journalist to ask the right questions and untangle this mess. Relevant for informed voting in both this year's local elections and next year's national ones.

    Informed? There will be a panel, to be sur,to be sur (R.I.P. Mr Leary)

  • Steve Barnes,

    The tragedy of McCully...

    So that's the obsession with the Waterfront.

    Sez Rudman

    the new mayoral chambers seems set to become the 21st century Tower of Babel, rather than the streamlined centre of focused leadership we've been promised.

    Or many dick's and dickess's in conservative garb, as opposed to a streamlined dick in a suit.

  • Russell Brown,

    If that wasn't enough Pam Corkery for ya, here's the 10 minutes "Extra Time" we recorded for last week's Media7.

    The show itself repeats at 9.10pm tonight, Media7.

    Sorry my mistake - I suspect we offered up Fanzones, IRB accepted. Location of said Fanzones to be worked out subsequently - I don't think IRB would dictate where these would be (and why should they?).

  • recordari,

    And I expect it to be awesome.

    I don't imagine you'll be disappointed. Would love to see them again if I could.

    Next for me is Shihad doing General Electric at the Powerstation. Should be good, but would be better if the Pixies came on afterwards.

    If that wasn't enough Pam Corkery for ya,

    I think it's amazing you all got out alive.

    Accidentally discussing that on another thread.

    Had to work on hte same floor as La Corkery for three years. You could hear her quiet, dulcet, hushed tones clear across the building.
