Re: Americas cup triple touch penalty to Kiwi's
I agree at most levels the participants are trying to win but not willing to play bumper boats to make that happen.
In the AC, it's winner takes all and the boat is semi-disposable. If they won and it cost them the boat, they would be happy to pay that vig.
Also agreed. I think at this level or when the crew is professional the only object is to win. Plus it's not their boat or money involved and Larry E has a fleet of attorneys is my guess. Any serious boat collision would have favored Oracle as they had two nearly identical boats and crews, the Team NZ backup boat was not as evolved and would have given a serious boost to Oracles chances of winning but there is no way they are 8 races down, might of well stop watching the Cup.
