Now here’s a surprise: spoiled rich kids upset that spoiled rich kids act spoilt

A joint statement published on the official America’s Cup website and signed by defending champions Oracle Team USA, Artemis Racing of Sweden, Britain’s Ben Ainslie Racing and Team France hit out at Team New Zealand.

“We are disappointed to see how Team New Zealand are characterising the rule changes that reflect the collective will of the America’s Cup teams,” the statement said.

“During discussions last month, ALL six teams, including Team New Zealand, agreed on the need to change to a smaller boat to reduce costs.

“While Luna Rossa supported a less dramatic change, a majority of teams agreed on what has become the America’s Cup Class, a new rule written in consultation with ALL teams, with drafts of the rule sent to ALL teams for comment and feedback.”

“Each team that voted for this new America’s Cup Class made compromises and sacrifices to get this done for the betterment of the America’s Cup.

“Taking these important decisions by a majority vote is something that was insisted upon by Luna Rossa and written into the rules of the event.

“Regrettably, abiding by the results of the majority vote appears to be something neither they, nor Team New Zealand, are willing to do… unless they are part of the majority.

Very un-Kiwi, by the way.  Dalton is slowly but surely destroying any and all goodwill that remains.
