Current State of Affairs in the America's Cup

The current state of affairs in the America's Cup just goes to prove that while everyone can screw up, the more money you have, the bigger the screw up. The Cups haven't really held any interest for me since the mid 90's, even less so now. And while I probably will try to watch some of the racing, it won't be out of interest for the Cup, but like extreme sports, I will be watching just to see if there's a wipeout. So sorry San Francisco, you got snookered.
One has to conclude that George Morris from Scotland has a point. In the same issue of Scuttlebutt, George was confident that the potential TV audience is there and concluded that " I shall be watching and Craig Leweck will be as well, so that's two already! ". To that he can add a third, David Tabor. David who hasn't had any interest in the Americas Cup since the mid 1990s is now drawn to watch it because of thrills and spills. Has San Francisco been snookered? Maybe not.
