Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Alot of the arguments you put forth seem to come from a perspective that has trouble differentiating between entertainers- and competitors.


The guys sailing the boats- the competitors- are their to compete. And if you think that's because of an audience- it says more about your lack of understanding of that personality than anything else. and that's ok, your lack of a frame of reference here is what separates pundits from players. Armchair quarterbacks from the guys on the field.


No one crewing is sitting back wondering if it'll make for good enough tv, or if it'll alienate middle America. There is an official party line, and no one wants to stry far from it- but at the end of the day- the competitor is there to compete.
