Channel 9 fun and news

2 July. Channel 9 news reminds us that the brand launch for Forsyth Barr Stadium at University Plaza is on tonight. The new logo has “spikes” (supposed to be the stadium roof, god help us) and “flowing energy” (I think ratepayers paid for that, no-one else could afford to be that maximised).

Eion Edgar will be there. He says the stadium is “the biggest thing to happen to Dunedin this century”. It would become “a national icon, not just an Otago icon”.

Oh. And then Malcolm Farry fronted, saying there should be “no concern” that NZRU is taking over the Highlanders.

ODT’s Simon Cunliffe profiled some stories for tomorrow’s newspaper: One on pile driving, “there’s the suggestion they’re going in too easily” !!! Another examining Dunedin City Council’s involvement in the Highlanders franchise.
