No. Your possums already got rid of them all.

i don't know why kiwi's think that aussies love possums, they're a menace to us as much as they are you.

OMGZ THEY ARE BOTH VIOLENT - BAN THEM ALL OR ELSE WE WILL ALL DIE!!!!

Wait, I thought I was a left winger for the moment - my bad.

I personally don't find either of them offensive - I personally find the fact the French rolled over in WWII offends me more.

Who cares if the All Blacks have that gesture in their haka. If they did that against Scotland most of us would start swaggering towards them, clutching a bottle of buckfast whilst having tracksuit bottoms tucked into football socks and wearing a burberry cap! Trust the French to kick up a fuss.

A tiny gesture of a throat slit... yeah, it's hard to see how anyone could make the connection between moving your thumb across under your neck and something violent :rolleyes: .
FFS ERIC try to be a little objective! Personally I think it's all a bit of fuss over nothing, but in the context of a fear ridden society where videos of people having THERE THROATS SLIT or HEADS CUT CLEAN OFF by terrorists are hitting the net, it's not hard to understand why some people may not be too keen at seeing such a similar gesture at the rugby.

Now, I don't watch any wrestling anymore, but from memory there is some character who does the same throat slitting action before his main move or whatever you call it. Does anybody watch wrestling and know who he is / if he still does it?

I've always hated that WWE crap (or WWF and whatever the otherone was before the merger), so I can't help you out... either way, I wouldn't be surprised if they still did it seeing how showy and wanky that crap is.

Erics point is - All this hub bub from the PC Brigade about Kapo Pango, but noone is talking about Tonga's war dance... and from memory (havent seen it in ages) Samoa's is hardly the most friendly of challenges.

sanzar is aussie cut him some slack.

I thought the point was fairly obvious too. all this fuss over what the abs are doing when other countries are doing things very similar.

*sigh* Yeah, listen I wasn't actually complaining about the HAKA, I personally think Kapa o Pango is pretty cool, but considering Chas from the chaser got arrested for selling fake weapons outside a Bulldogs game, I'm not at all surprised that people have reacted negatively to the new throat slitting gesture in the new HAKA. As for Tonga and Samoa, well even the most one eyed of kiwi patriots should be able to see that they don't have all that much media exposure, and there's nothing in either of their hakas quite as obvious as the throat slit.

In any case boys, it seems to me that most of the whinging about this has come from kiwi's. You guys just can't stop talking about it when almost everyone else has moved on... FFS there was only ever one comment from Connolley and one by the French and you're carrying on like the world is out to get you! The amount of kiwi's going around crying that people don't respect their culture is getting very boooooring...
