I fully understand the need for you to save a million bucks next year. Really, totally do. After all, there's a World Cup coming up that you'll need to save for.
But for the love of all that's good and right, why on EARTH cancel the New Zealand Maori rugby team next year? I mean, WTF? The tradition that produced Tane Norton, Sid Going and the incomparable George Nepia, gone in a puff of beancounting.
Was there seriously no other way to save a million dollars? Really? Nothing else that could be done? Cake stall? Nothing?
In the sincere hope that the team is reinstated for 2010,
