Any word on ticket sales?I hope Eden Park looks a bit fuller than this next week;
More people watch test match cricket in NZ.
Wellington Fun police fined me $250 on Friday! bought a beer from supermarket after work was drinking it on way home cops saw me pulled over and fined me, zero tolerance apparently... enjoy your nice sleepy town with no sevens tourists & none of there cash injection into Wellington economy. Greed with ticket prices & cost of food & drinks at stadium combined with fun police over regulation and 9's in Auckland killed the 7's dead once was a vibe to the event never was my thing it was a rah-rah muppet festival but bought $$$ into Welli... dead vibe now oh well, next
Its almost as if they are purposely trying to screw the event. Fuckwits!!!Ridiculous. Apparently they are breath testing fans before letting them into the stadium and turning people away. The stadium is empty and they are still turning people away.
Most of them only went to watch one team and spent the rest of the time having fun. The fun Police arrived so now there is nobody to watch the rugby anyway.the great thing about the 7s was the costumes and packed stadium
Pretty sad for you but I remember it was the same for the 2011 RWC, I went on the walk from downtown to Eden Park got thirsty and went to buy a beer to drink along the way, got told if I did I would be fined.Wellington Fun police fined me $250 on Friday! bought a beer from supermarket after work was drinking it on way home cops saw me pulled over and fined me
Oh the irony of that Spotless sign in the background!!
about 10 years ago 7s were on waitangi weekend attended by 35,000, its also bob marleys birthday used to have "one love" concert at haitaitai park 10,000 people there every year(thats cancelled a few years ago)... some green party wowser mayor is trying to kill anyone having fun in Wellington unless it involves push bikes, gardening or IT... coolest little capital slogans looking dead! now council wants everyone to be a hipster who drinks 1 or 2 bacon, avacado and lime flavoured bullshit craft beers at an overpriced bar on courtney place which have all become identical bland copies of each other and wank on about how awesome wtgn is then goes home early on a Friday night!
As a league fan this is hard to say but i think union 7's is generally slightly better game than league 9's... but in 7's beside NZ team i never even heard of any other teams players except USA's Carlin Isles & whatching some douche dress up like austin powers for 15 years in a row aint my idea of fun! What League 9's does have in its favour is name recognition across all teams, womens 9's test series & this years ledgends goal kicking comp, 9's should add a few pacific nations, nz residents, maybe wigan from UK to help keep format interesting next year
That is under threat this year. The Warriors are carrying this tournament.What League 9's does have in its favour is name recognition across all teams,
