Recommended Posts

Emirates Team New Zealand heath managers have advised that all sailors, shore crew and even those who are desk bound are banned from the use of dating apps such as Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and Grindr.

Mwahahaha

Pity about the lawn mowing

Even if it is a great way to reduce fire risks in these long hot dry days ;)

Oh and if you're in the state house behind us, mowing your lawns means you can find your 2 dozen odd chickens that are in there somewhere.

thats just so the grinders don't feel excluded

apparently Grindr is the place to go for grinders who want to met another grinder, and do some grinding

Surely this is a joke?

The biggest risk to not being able to race, and blowing all those millions of $$$ spent on the campaign, is a team member catching covid, or at the least getting caught in the net of a close contact / casual plus contact etc, and having to isolate for two weeks. No training, or no racing if you have to isolate or quarantine.

So management have put in a wide range of rules about not going out and about to minimise the risk of getting caught up in it. i.e. not allowed to go to the supermarket etc. They have just now expanded that to the young bucks in the crew who might feel the need to pull some slapper for some light relief on a Saturday night... who knows what they might catch there, most of which can be treated by antibiotics, but the risk of quarantining the team, or even parts of the shore crew for two weeks would warrant the intrusion into the boys after hours activities, I would have thought.

Surely this is click bait journalism?

Either that or a mistimed April Fools joke?

Either way, who really cares?

I will admit I'm surprised to see LSD as the source. I thought they were better than that

Of course it is click bait journalism. Headlines announcing ETNZ have been banned from the supermarket is hardly going to get a lot of views, is it?

I thought it was funny, but the underlying story is the team is taking the risk of covid, and disruption to training or racing due to isolating, very seriously.

Ones personal sex life? I guess the venn  diagram would show some overlap with isolating but “banning” the use of a dating site ergo banning sexual activity? Like to see what the lawyers would make of that.  In other words if you were in a polygamous relationship or married that would be fine?

Lighten up Tamure, go smoke a joint or something. It might reinstate your sense of humour.

If you take absolutely everything very seriously, you are going to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. And not have much fun.

Fish why the habit of telling people how to think and act? while its handy to have someone around that knows everything, when I want your advice I will post a thread and you can make one of your many contributions

Before the last big contest I told my crew as the day was looking lite we needed to save every gram we could so spend the night being a bunch of whores. Not surprisingly they listened. I even got a txt from a WAG asking of I'd told her mate to shag her silly, I replied I sure did. She replied 'Thank you' :) :)
