Too sheepish - baaaaaaaa humbug.
Good on old Willie Mason for dissing the haka in the Rugby League test over the weekend.
Only the public of Australia would get so nosebleedish about sledging some evolving ritual which basically says, "we're gonna rape your date and eat your future". This from a country with no future at the ass-end of the earth.
And by an Australian Aborigine leading a blend of Pakeha and Samoans, with a token Maori second rower or two thrown in.
Hell, Maoris have only been in NZ for the past 1,000 years anyway - not that much longer than the Pakeha, geologically speaking.
And before we get all P.C., it pays to note the Maori began their pan-pacific imperialism 500 years before their Pakeha mates. I wonder how the poor mob overwhelmed by the Maori felt about the haka?
To me, the haka's a bit of pre-match entertainment. No more, no less.
