    “Developed to promote Rugby World Cup 2011 in communities, buyers will be reminded to take care to ensure the bunting is not used in any way that suggests an unauthorized commercial association with the Tournament.”

    You have got to be kidding me.
    How much are we charging the rugby union for use of the black shirt, how much for the silver fern, how much to use the lemon, sorry, toast rack, ‘very long list inserted here’?
    I’m having a whole bunch of trouble understanding how all this works. We pay for EVERYTHING several times over, then when there is the chance we could scrape maybe a fraction of it back they’re telling us to piss off we’re not allowed.

    That sounds about right. Hang I’ll try to bend over a bit more….

    Wirehunt, you have it all right – the amazing thing is that the community at large has not yet risen up and turfed these leeches out into the real world.

    Sneddon and the rest of the NZRU need to have their cosy deep shag pile ripped right out from under them. Just why is it that we have allowed the NZRU and all their local unions to start running our local and national economies? Who is actually pulling the strings?

    I’m not buying anything from a company that has a ‘z’ instead of an ‘s’ in their name.

    An interesting observation is that if one follows the link given above and trawls through all the prohibitions of RWC’s ‘twee’, virtual & 40+ page official guide on everything that isn’t allowed, when one comes to the definitions of the clean zones for each venue – one is missing (Can you guess which one?). The boundaries of this particular official clean zone will apparently be issued in a ‘future’ edition. Now there’s an offical expression of confidence in Farry’s claims if ever there was one.

    hahaha Nice catch.
