Nice to see the rah-rahs are getting concerned about all the Warriors hype and success. Clearly they are nervous!
Two articles this morning with tacit ''support'' couched in shrouded niggles. Mr. Gray opening his remarks with ''pay what you like' full house comments and then additional column remarks on how much the Kiwi Ferns were watched on Sky last weekend over the Warriors game. (research figures which I find very hard to believe and very dependent on the quality of the question being asked)
Yeah right... try comparing Warriors watchers vs Blues watchers to start, and make it clear that it was only the last few thousand tickets that went under this regime and for a special person.
And Mr Gray, if you have nothing genuinely positive to say, better to not say anything than a condescending token column in the Rah Rah Herald.
The real folks that matter are delighted at the success around the club, especially given the travel requirements, fact that that they have to fight the rah rah establishment here for air time and everything else, not to mention Aussie refs and judiciary week after week.
Who knows, we might even get a photo or two in this weekend's press and more than a 1/8 page of biased opinion.
It gave me great pleasure to cancel my NZH subscription this week when it next becomes due. I hope someone asks me why, but I doubt they will.
Cant wait for tonight. Let's have another Black out, this time with the Tonga/England atmosphere. Yeeeeehaaaa!!!
