Re: Louis Vuitton Cup - Race 1

Admit it! You're still proud he's a Kiwi!

You can't really blame the guy for following the money. Pro athletes do it all the time!

But if ETNZ wins, won't it be sweet revenge!

Mostly when pro athletes go where the money is nobody else really loses.

When the boys from ETNZ went to the dark side, they were going to earn not a great deal more than they had been but their country was going to lose a fortune.

As far as being proud, we have many sports people to be proud of with dozens of world class athletes competing is assorted sports around the world and from a total population half the size of the City of New York.

So whilst Coutts is a legend in his own lifetime, it's because of his newly acquired "win-at-all-costs" attitude that he's lost a lot of his shine back home.
