Sunday morning NZ - Live NZ Radio Station - Caller Reactions

Post by YOYO »

This is the beauty of internet radio. Picked up this NZ Sports Radio station called “Radio Sport” on my Internet radio.

As a non New Zealander one can get a live insight into how Kiwi’s are dealing with the aftermath of the England lose.

http://streaming.radiomyway.co.nz/rsportalt.pls

It’s Sunday morning in New Zealand and callers ringing in their droves giving their reactions.
It’s Saturday night for me in Ireland.

One Kiwi reckons Wales will beat SA.

Reckons England made the AB’s look smaller.

You do realise this is commercial radio, i.e. bugger all of the population are interested ergo not indicative of the general population, including a percentage that doesn't follow rugby ...

I’m listening to angry Paul on now.
The station has apparently been flooded with callers.

Really interesting as an outsider to get an insight into the New Zealand psyche. A country where rugby is life.

Quite right. The Union Jack is a flag for fascists.

They're talking about mintal weakness on the pitch, and property damage in Auckland. Very interesting, riveting stuff.

I’m hooked on this now. News is on. After a lot of ads, including Windy’s Hamburgers.

News coverage of the rugby was incredibly fair and honest.

Jim Kayes just made an interesting point

Our next game verse the Saffers will be our 100th test match against them.

It could be celebrated by a play off to find the worst RWC losers

Was listening to a podie and decided to check if I could find a NZ sport radio station and hit upon this station. Interesting experience so far. After all NZ is rugby obsessive so interesting to get the pulse of the nation.

Heard many calls when I was getting ready this morning. Most very complimentary of England. Anyone a bit grumpy was just angry with coaching staff.

Radio Sport gets under 5% of radio listenership.

I think the callers, host and journo are very sensible and measured. If this is the more extreme NZ opinion, it must be a very considered place.

The only anxiety I'm seeing is whether Foster is the right man etc.

Can I say the Kiwis come across fantastic. What a brilliant and more retrospect/reflective bunch of people they are.

More than 1:2 New Zealanders have no interest in rugby at all .

Perhaps the majority resent the amount of coverage and media obsession .

F*ck em basically .

Yes I agree. The callers recognise that the ABs were beaten by the better team and no real ref howlers or controversies to go after. Just pure disappointment. Some angry with selections and players like Bender not getting game time.
