Happy to discuss what I brought up, just not the craven political war soapbox that have absolutely nothing to do with it.
I brought up government funding of a private sailing team being a bad idea. Specifically, if it became a matter of national pride to win the AC, government treasuries make Ellisons billions look paltry. Seeing what his influence was would only be magnified. I'm glad it hasn't taken hold, but it could. It has in some Olympic sports and ruined the spirit entirely, IMO.
