Fallout from the conclusion of the America's Cup Regatta. Team New Zealand was beaten by the best New Zealanders money can buy. While TNZ pouts and accuses the expatriates of disloyalty, the real disloyalty was shown back at the start of the campaign. The TNZ money people balked at compensating their star players what they were worth after two winning campaigns. That left them as free agents and Bertarelli knew how to buy the best. There is a disgrace to be borne here and that disgrace belongs to the TNZ management. They are the ones who failed their nation, not Coutts and Butterworth.
