America’s Cup, the cocaine of  our sporting world?

I​t’s expensive, it’s mired in controversy and illegal allegations, and every few years it gives you a hit that you can’t resist!

Grant Dalton is our perennial drug dealer. He makes money with a smile, gives us a brief high and when the high wears off we are left wanting, but with nothing there.
Who wasn’t getting up at 8 o’clock most mornings a couple of years ago to snort another line, sometimes to be left with a buzz,  other mornings the low hit way too soon, yet we kept coming back for more. And in the end we were left weeping in the gutter.
