jerry i pay to see rugby to and part of the joy for me is seeing the boys representing our country showing how proud they are to be KIWIs and of there culture, to suggest that it only be done after a game if we win shows you realy have no idea what it is all about, after a game would defeat the entire purpose, also to say that it is just a bunch of nacy boys slapping there thighs, are you serious? you say you watch rugby, may i mention the scrum?grown men hold the crutch of the player in front of them, is that gay to?
to all the people that are against NZ preforming the haka , maybe you should take a step back find out more about what it represents because the only reason your so against it is because you dont understand it,
to suggest that we should keep our culture to ourselfs does this mean you believe mcdonalds should be confined to america where it originated? (after all MCDS has a worse affect on people that sitting though the shortened version of the haka does)
suggesting this would also be suggesting that BMW should be found no where but europe and kawasaki kept to the confinds of Japanese teritory.
these are things found all over the world, and although they are not cultural like the haka they are things that are well known to be associated with that particular country.
shame on you all i thought the human race had come along way, esp in rugby since the springbox refused to play NZ if they had Maori on the team it seem the haka debarcle is along the same lines as that.
do your research, learn about it then make an educated decision. its not hurting anyone, if it upset you that much look away or change the channel. if the english wish to but heads and swear at each other on the feild b4 the game instead of the locker room, i will gladly watch.
i do however diagree with the french being fined for charging the haka, if thats how they wanted to show they accepted our challenge then good on them
GO THE ALL BLACKS, KEEP DOING THE HAKA, PROUD TO BE KIWI
Well well well. some of you call the haka uncivalized and yet you run a tournament at a loss. How civalized is that? Some of you say the haka should be restricted to cultural shows. In case you forgot, rugby is part of the culture show called sports culture. As for those of you who think there is no place for the haka in the game you show how racist you really and the dumb part is, you use the name Kiwi to identify yourself. I aint no Kiwi that is the name of a bird. I am a New Zealand Maori.
