With the Coutts money train out of steam, it looks like it’s open season for those posting those ultra-restricted America’s Cup videos. They’re all over Youtube and Facebook, and props to the RNZYS for letting the public watch what they want regardless of whatever bullshit deal ACEA sold to the networks. Here’s the entire Race 9 as broadcast live last Monday.
It’s not like anyone watched anyway, as you’ll note from the final ratings for the last weekend of AC racing in US markets...beaten this time by drag racing, college baseball, and the US Track & Field champs, at a Nielsen number that’s roughly half the San Francisco ratings. Bravo! [/sarcasm]
