Polls and Peters and P***hols

Open your eyes Mr Peters


On Friday I watched a re-run of Boots and All on TV in which Greg Peters was interviewed about the Super 15 and the inclusion of the Kings.


What can I say! He speaks well considering that he was probably prepped with the questions that he would be asked, but in all honesty I could have seen similar comedy on the comedy channel. Stand up or in his case sit down comedy is not his forte.


When the presenter showed him the results of a poll that they did where 73%, of those that took part, demanded a change to the format. He answers that he hadn’t seen those figures before and that all the numbers at his disposal didn’t show that. What k*k! If that is indeed the case he should be fired for incompetence. The newspapers, blogs and sports channels are full of it. Doesn’t he read, watch or listen to the news.


He then goes on to say that the numbers “That he has” do not agree. The viewership has increased he says. WHAT! Talk about apples compared to pears.


All I can say Mr Peters is this.


  • Viewership is increasing but bums on seats is the same or similar to last year and in some instances way less.
  • Nobody said the viewership was less. 73% of those Rugby followers polled say the format is crap not the rugby.
  • 7% of those polled said the system needed to be tweaked.
  • My arithmetic makes that 80% that don’t like the present format. Even if, as you say, it is only SA opinion.
  • Who brings in a huge majority of the cash to SANZAR???
  • I would like to suggest that you pull your head out of the sand and start looking at the competition through rugby eyes. Leave the Oz tinted glasses at home.
