Rugby is great - why do the people who talk about it suck?

Its been a stressful week, rugby is dominating the agenda of every media organization in New Zealand and we had a close call at Jono Project studios when our show was almost replaced by a half hour highlights package of the 1991 world cup sponsored by Keith Quinn’s Funeral Plan. Fortunately a lot of people have been dying lately and Keith couldn’t afford to produce the show. So we live to fight another day up against a ridiculous number of mind numbing rugby analysis shows that seem to be based around talking about how awesome Ritchie McCaw is (he's pretty awesome don't get me wrong).

“The Rugby World cup is 3 weeks in and still going strong” is how Richard Loe introduced his midday radio show. “The thing I love most about this competition is the fans” is something I actually heard Martin Devlin say on TV One last week. “A man who suffers from depression shouldn't be the all-black coach" is a direct quote from Miles Davis on TV3’s Cup Talk yesterday.

Unfortunately we’re currently experiencing a period where the stupidest people in New Zealand get to stand up and talk loudly in depth about something they seem to have little or no knowledge about - yet devote their lives to being an expert on. I’m not a registered member of the New Zealand police but if I were I’d arrest Richard Loe for being bad at talking. Unfortunately I’m not, so he still writes a full length column in the nzherald every week with titles like “All Blacks Building Momentum” and “Scrum needs more work” and sure I’ve never actually read any of them but guessing they’re pretty bad. I realise its cliché but I often wonder what comes first the brain damage or the rugby? Do you have to be retarded to play rugby or does rugby cause severe retardation?

Whoa this blog took a dark turn! And it makes little or no effort to promote the show… which you should watch this Friday night on TV3. If you want.

Sincerely,
Guy

Welcome! To the first entry of my new blog over the next (insert period of time I can be bothered to do this) I will be updating this page with the latest happenings around what I like to call “Jono Project Studios” or “The Room Next to the garage in the basement at tv3”. This week I have compiled a list of five pointless slash mildly interesting facts about the host of the show “Jono”.
