Talk about conflicted, love having the cup and full of admiration for the boys but but but, coughing up 212 million, lets hope they put on a great show :)

Well, if you don't fund the Cup, you'll probably just waste that money on 

 

frivolities like food, clothing and/or shelter!!

$40 million of that sum is the so called "event fee".

Never ever thought a one off yachting regatta could scoff through such a whopping chunk of change.

In my view the public purse has been severely diddled by the whole AC event and the $250 million would have better given to our nurses as a welcome change from their paltry pay rates.
