Kiwis sounding like the ex gf whose plan to get back with you is to tell you that she wasn’t being a bitch and you should appreciate her more. Sure, she’s controlling, painful and awful company, but she’s doing this all for you. Why can’t you understand that.

Meanwhile Oz rugby is at the pub trying to meet some other birds, but getting the shits with the constant text messages. Hope NZ is okay when they see our cock getting sucked by some new mob, but I suspect they are going to go full Bunny-boiler.

The analogy is good but I think you have it some what reversed.

The AR is very much the long-term wife or girlfriend who has finally received an honest answer to the question “does my bum look big in this?”. She is now talking to anyone who will listen about how hurt she is, including her heavily tanned and botoxed Saffer friend Susie. Susie and others are busy telling her that she’s always been too good for him while secretly weighing their own options to seduce him.

Meanwhile AR is becoming more and more anxious because she realizes she has been punching above her weight with her much more attractive partner and will never do better. She knows in her heart that all of their friends prefer to hang out with him and that is unlikely she will get custody of their only child, who has decided to be with his dad for the last 18 years.

Desperate for validation AR then puts on the lipstick, turns down the lights and switches on the WebCam, then weeps softly to herself when no one tunes in to watch.

That's the true analogy but you've forgotten a few details.
That was 20 years ago. As good looking as he was he hasn't aged well and currently furloughed. She on the other hand had lost weight and have aged well. Looks better in middle-age than in 20s. Their only child loved the father more coz he was the house husband whilst she was busy working hard in her career which made her really rich. Now he's asking for maintenance. What a loser.

No, they didn't hev to stoop so low. Hev theer frinds collict theer ricords and thin change theer number. I guess thet we don't need thet though. Now we’re just somebody thet they use to know.”

:lol: But you have reversed the lines there. In the song it is the Aussie saying that. Then the Kiwi comes in with this

Quote:
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know


Works very well.

I’m still hopeful sense will prevail beyond the headlines. CI’s comment made me sad when thinking just what a beauty she was 20 years back.

Staying in the musical theme.

You’re the ones chasing Australia, who’s moved on? Please understand who you are in the ‘crazy ex gf’ analogy.

Let me tell you a story, youngun'.

There were two bulls in a paddock in spring time, and the young bull (Mr Mike) said to the old bull (Ellafan) -

"I am so much younger an tougher then you, you old cunt,I'm am going to take a run up, and jump that fence into the next paddock and fuck some of those young juicy heffers in there! And the old bull said, good on you son, way you go. And he sat back and watched the young bloke tire himself out jumping that fence and having a couple of roots.

And then as he launched himself into motion, the old bull said.. "Well done lad, now I'm going to walk through the gate the farmer left open and fuck the rest of them."

It’s no revelation to me that you are full of bull but I’m very flattered you are calling me young, you shameless tease.

Good luck with the leftovers.

Too late.

NZR has stated what it wants, and we have left them to it. You can hardly be complain - you were handed what you want.

You've got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down you just stood there grinnin'
You've got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that's winnin'

You say I let you down, ya know its not like that
If you're so hurt, why then don't you show it?
You say you've lost your faith, but that's not where its at
You have no faith to lose, and ya know it

I know the reason, that you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
Do you take me for such a fool, to think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide what he don't know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say "how are you?", "good luck", but ya don't mean it
When you know as well as me, you'd rather see me paralyzed
Why don't you just come out once and scream it

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And tho I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, its not my problem?

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you

Great, the benefits of being seven hours ahead. Stop obsessing, put down the phone and enjoy it. I’ll raise a Kingfisher to you all over my curry in a few hours.

Been drinking, getting later, continuing to reach out. This has the familiar tone of a booty call in the making.

Ok. You and one friend only, anymore than two and the quality drops away. And I’m not spooning after.

How do you know there was no discussion? Also, Sunwolves were in the comp the last few years and the Drua were in the NRC, so RA asked all of the teams.

Aratipu report: New Super Rugby competition including Pacific team recommended

A new Super Rugby competition minus South Africa but including a Pasifika team is being promoted by New Zealand Rugby.

Codie Taylor of the Crusaders is tackled by Ofa Tu�ungafasi and Josh Goodhue of the Blues during the Super Rugby Aotearoa, Crusaders V Blues, at Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch, New Zealand, 11th July 2020. The Aratipu review has recommended a new Super Rugby competition comprising of the five New Zealand franchises, a Pasific team as well as Australian teams. Photo: Photosport Ltd 2020
The Aratipu review recommended the new competition be established from 2021.

The competition would involve the current five New Zealand super rugby franchises and "we will also be working with Rugby Australia to seek expressions of interest from their current Super clubs and other interested parties to join the competition," said New Zealand Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson.

"As well, there is a huge desire to have a Pasifika team involved which we think will be massive for the competition, popular with fans and is a priority for us. As we know, our Pacific nations and Pasifika players in New Zealand have added so much to the rich history of rugby in Oceania and our game here in New Zealand. To have a team that would provide an additional pathway for Pasifika players to perform on the world stage would be hugely exciting," Robinson said.

Where does it say Aus have to drop teams? All Aus teams get an EOI, and anyone else who wants one (see Western Force) as they weren't in Super rugby (RA kicked them out). Also seems he says will be working with RA. Still you go for it and get your tits in a tangle Towny, don't let facts get in the way of your argument!

As I said, NZR saw that both parties needed a TT comp and instead of talking it over with RA they sneakily put together a TT structure first in order to get all they wanted and hope RA would panic and beg to be included.

An Aussie with skinny calves getting smashed by a Pacific Islander? That's what I'm seeing as well :nod:

(or alternatively both parties are funny, and are having fun. Not like some on this thread)

I certainly hope both of us were having fun but if not at least I enjoyed myself. Very much like my honeymoon.

This thread has the same feel as the Israel Folau thread when all the Aussie posters were claiming he didn't have a case and he wouldn't get a cent.

They had faith AR was going to stand strong and not cave then as well.

That's not how I remember the Folau thread at all. There was a wide range of views, including lots of posters who supported Israel's right to tweet whatever he felt like tweeting. Some posters thought RA would be liable for many millions in compensation. Most posters were disappointed in his behaviour and hoped that it didn't cost RA too much.

This thread has the same feel as the Israel Folau thread when all the Aussie posters were claiming he didn't have a case and he wouldn't get a cent.

Good point.

So that makes NZR the Folau character in this scenario?

As I said, NZR saw that both parties needed a TT comp and instead of talking it over with RA they sneakily put together a TT structure first in order to get all they wanted and hope RA would panic and beg to be included.


It could be, I tend to think NZR and RA have been talking all the time, and RA are making sure NZR cop the shit when they drop Rebels or whoever from comp, they can't afford 4 teams, they need Twiggy to pay for Force and then they have only 3 teams to pay for. Or maybe they weren't actually almost bankrupt at beginning of year and they have got more money than they been letting on, one of reasons McLennan want PI team in Sydney , can say look we still got 5 teams based in Oz. Don't get me wrong NZR will be trying to get what they want, would be piss poor if they didn't.

Why should NZR care that RA can't afford 5 teams. That's RA's responsibility. What NZR wants is an access to the Aust market but keep the greater part of revenue. They can't do that without Aust teams in the comp. That's why they tried to talk directly to the Aust SR teams.

As an aside, I am glad that none of the posters on this thread are representing either NZR or RA in the ongoing negotiations.

You seem a little confused.
