Title: RWC
Post by: snaz on Tue 17 May, 2011 - 12:03 pm
Will holding the RWC event here in NZ put more strain on the ecomany than
what we already have?  After all its just a game. :-@

I don't think it will put a strain on the economy - with the price gouging going on with accommodation, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the overseas visitors will just choose to stay in Sydney or something, so we'll lose that income.  And the price gouging on the tickets will probably lead to small crowds, especially with them broadcasting some of the bigger games in 3D, why pay hundreds for tickets to sit in the cold with no commentary, when you could spend that money buying a 3D TV and watch it in the comfort of your own home with commentary.

Sky TV keep offereng me some good deals if I contract to any of the Sports Channels.

Told them   where to go. 

RWC in centres that are hosting teams will show them just how
greedy NZ has become, it will tar NZ in the name of tourisim.

But hey that's thugby for you. :-D

I'm a right-winger, and even I think many have become greedy over this, the ones that will suffer are the regular kiwi dad that wants to take their kids along to see an international match, there doesn't even seem to be a separate price for kids even.

But who knows, when the time comes they may be so desperate to sell tickets, they may put a realistic price on them

Tis a blatant show of just how greedy the corporates etc have become.  As with many many other sporting events, the dollar speaks and a wee country like NZ shouldn't even bother trying to host or be involved in anything this big.

Want to find out how much the tickets are for the next 'Saders game here.  Must go make that call  :eek:   Not a rugby fan but def support local team  :jump:

That is so very true in every sence.   Greed is killing it for the regular family's that used to support Rugby.

Nothing beats going to footy and freezing ya bits off. Then all is forgiven when you take a mouthfull of a pie on the way home.

That is what Kiwi's do.   or is that DID? :thinking:

got a letter from the local council today saying that 'cause I live within a "clean zone"
i.e. 500m in all directions of where RWC games will be played,
there will be restrictions on "advertising and commercial activities", in these "clean zones", on and around game dates.

They're sending out info packs.

Big Brother will be watching  :stalker:

I hope that is the case and why not have deals for kiwi families?

There was talk of people staying in Sydney, attending games then returning to their accommodation in Sydney...good on them, that will also teach the greedy buggers!

Post by: Brain on Thu 26 May, 2011 - 06:56 pm
the RWC is a total f**k up
them thats want go cant afford it.
thems that are coming wont pay the extortionate prices for accommodation
and 'refreshments' at the grounds.
the entity in charge of the RWC threatens to sue anyone who remotely mentions it
in any advertising if they haven't paid the fees.
you can't even mention it as an event that's happening whether you use it as a drawcard or not
in advertising! it's the unmentionable event!!
so we are left with day trippers who will pay for the ticket to the game/s they want
and have a holiday in the sun on the gold coast and get a cheap fare (on an aussie airline) to fly over for the day.
and they poor traders who thought they would get a windfall from the throngs of fans will end up out of pocket and the rest of the community will be under house arrest for daring to buy/sell a litre of milk while a rugby game is on.
add to that the fact the government has taken away games in the south island and withdrawn the possibility of a travel subsidy for anyone who had tickets for games that are now at the other end of the country...
you can see that this whole RWC has turned into a huge fiasco

and who gets a benefit from all this?
not joe public that's for sure! :wtf:

The $10 million taxpayers will spend hosting foreign leaders during the Rugby World Cup will include a $500,000 transport bill.

Foreign dignitaries will be put up in top hotels, given drivers and will be dined and entertained on the Government.

The $9,955,000 for the programme was outlined in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget.

Of that, $500,000 of that go to Ministerial Services for VIP transport services including wages and petrol costs.

Department of Internal Affairs chief executive Brendan Boyle said it would cover the extra transport costs for foreign heads of state, including bus hire.

"It's just actually operating costs for the vehicles."

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Britain's David Cameron and Russian leaders Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev are potential visitors, as are the Queen and princes William and Harry.

Invitations had been sent out but it was not clear how many foreign leaders would travel to New Zealand during the Rugby World Cup.

Work had been done on the value of those visitors coming to New Zealand, Boyle said.

"The value that it actually brings to the country in having high-profile visitors rubbing shoulders obviously, whether it's business people, community leaders and the spin-off benefits coming out of that."

I find it hard to see any benefits coming from it, sounds like a load of s**t to me, hopefully if any of them do decide to come, they decline bludging off the NZ Tax Payer and pay their own way

some of the people that are rumored to be on the list have enough money to buy this country! why are we spending money, which the government is borrowing at an alarming rate, to entertain the worlds wealthy elite??

 :rolleyes:


Title: Re: RWC
Post by: Coach on Thu 16 June, 2011 - 07:53 pm
Any sitting government would do the same. It's a massive opportunity for the minnows that run this country to swim briefly with the big fish,and they don't care how much of our money they spend on this rare privilege.

Not being a great fan of rugby, I can't remember where the last World Cup was held. I can't imagine that many people were greatly influenced by the standard of hospitality there.

As a side note, once the RWC circus has packed up and left town ,how are the serial complainers going to justify complaining about poor customer service? "I bought a mince pie at the service station, it was cold and the cashier didn't smile, we need to do better what with the Rugby World Cup and all" sounds lame enough, but how did these people function before they had the RWC to pin their hopes and expectations on?

I dont have a problem with the ticket price. Its the money grabbing that goes with it. Accommodation, food, drinks, all at inflated prices. You can almost bet the price of fuel will increase, just in time to capitalise on the 1000's of travellers that will be in our fair, although somewhat pricey, country.

Never mind. I can watch on TV, i should be grateful of that.

Hehe...it does have some benefits though like...um... well you know.

received a glossy rugby ball shaped flyer in the mail telling how many tickets have been sold and prices of remaining tickets...I was thinking blow that I'm going to Oz for a holiday and watch it on TV over there - in the warm! or from the pool. :)

The flyers would have cost a fair amount, wonder if every household got one.

Grew up with the f**king crap....My stepdad was a ref so we would have to go to all the games that he was reffing at all over southland and central, and when he wasnt reffing, he would be watching all the f**king videos he had, huge black and green collection of rugby games....

  :cited: :cited: :cited:pretentious mime, and
 :bored2: :bored2: :bored2: fireworks.

It's a great diversion for the dribbly-drawered librarians and dotty old grannies who wouldn't otherwise be interested, but it has f**k-all to do with rugby.

grumpy old sod.
it was a good opening ceremony, showcasing the country for the world and all it's tourist dollars.
but the fireworks certainly seemed to be the same as always and a lot of repetition in style, they need to invent a new type.

Because the PR gurus who run the party told him to.

John Key has held an ambition to be Prime Minister since he was a snotty little kid.Who can blame him for cashing in on his celebrity status while the country quietly turns to s**t?

rhetorical really,
 but i think it was an error to walk out smiling (and who'd blame him, i would too if i was on the field with the AB's in the world cup) when it was a solemn moment of silence for both countries. i'd have thought he'd be with the Japanese ambassador and other officials, doing official things.

Is there anything in the rules that says the ball can/not be swapped during a game/to kick penalties?

Who had the microscope out looking at mouthgaurds? Even expanding the pics available, I can't see any branding.

If the IRB can strongarm a government into changing it's laws to add value  to their sponsorship arrangements, it comes as no surprise that they'll stab their own people in the back if they fail to do as they are told by the advertisers.

There was a time when the IRB  was expected to do what was best for the game, not the other way around.

The great unwashed don't really figure in the equation. They will all spend their disposable income on something, be it RWC or KFC, and in doing so will donate 15% to the shower of s**t that run this country. The only real question is, have we attracted enough  tourist dollars to recoup the money that Murray McCully has thrown at this event?

God help us if the All Blacks lose........When they win, their supporters are a pack of arrogant blowhards, when they lose, it can only be because the other side were cheating or the ref was biased.

After so many failures to bring home the Webb Ellis, you'd think that Kiwis would have at least learnt how to lose with dignity.

Something very dodgy about the France Wales  game.

Ref sent one of their best players off for a tackle that would have earned no more than a yellow card on any other field.

Up until that point Wales had the upper hand......was it favouritism by the ref?


Here's a clue...the ref was  Allain Rolland . Son of a Frenchman.

If the cheese eating surrender monkeys win this competition, it will be tainted by accusations of improper reffing  and incompetent ref selection by the IRB. :shakehead:

I guess Ka Mate is more nostalgic for me, it's what I've always known, I know when it's going to finish, with Kapa o Pango I don't know where it's at, when it's going to climax, etc - and Kapa o Pango just doesn't make the hair on the back of my neck stand up like Ka mate

I'd rather see the All Blacks lose a close-fought game than watch them trample some minor team into the turf.

yep, I think that's why everybody went off to party and left her standing on the field by herself

and I can't believe the All Blacks did a celebratory haka, it's supposed to be a challenge not a celebration dance :idunno:

Not a strong enough voice for that song...Kiri Te Kanawa would have done it justice.

as Richie reached for the hand of the bloke who was handing him the cup
JK shoved his hand in and grabbed the back of the blokes and, then tried
to grab Richies fingers. such a cringe moment.
