  8. I'm yellow carding you for egregious use of quotation marks, it IS The Haka Dance, it does not need to be emphasized or alluded to that it is something else.

  9. Very nice, but I have to wonder: is this kind of grandstanding available to EVERY team in soccer who wants to do something similar after winning a match, or is this something special that only this one team is allowed to do?

    Because doing a victory dance on the field right after the game seems like pretty poor sportsmanship.

  11. Looking for a place to emigrate, especially after SCOTUS handed America over to the wealthy elites on a silver platter yesterday. New Zealand looks more and more inviting.

  13. I love rugby players and the All Blacks have more than their fair share of them. The HaKa, Gregory, is a long-standing Maori cultural expression that has been welcomed in rugby play for decades. It's hardly poor sportsmanship, more than players high-fiving each other, thrusting their arms up in the air, or pouring champagne over their heads during major tournaments or Superbowls.
