Flame of the week – In defence of Chic Henry

By johnboy 7 January 2009 101

Our very first FOTW for the new year and it’s a Chic Henry apologist! Congratulations to first time commenter RogerRamjet069 for this effort:

    RiotAct really needs to get some new material.
    The same whining wowsers year after year complaining about a bit of noise and smoke for around a week of their year.
    Boooooo Hoooooo
    If any Canberrians took their family to Summernats on a Saturday night claiming NOT to know what it was all about, then they are IDIOTS. Everyone all over Australia knows what happens at Summernats and those that live in Canberra would be doubly aware.
    I’ve been to Summernats 17, 18 and 20 and I did see some poor behaviour. Wow!! Poor behaviour at a sports event!! I’ve been to EVERY Clipsal 500 in Adelaide too. I’ve seen many many more fights at Clipsal and dramas in the pubs afterwards, then in your sleepy little town!! Isn’t Adelaide supposed to be the boring capital??
    Some people think cars are a mode of transport to get from A to B. Some don’t. Some people think ball sports or fishing are a waste of a weekend. Some don’t.
    Sensitive women should probably avoid summernats as the crowds in certain areas will encourage them to flash their breasts. I have summernats magazines going back to summernats 1 and the behaviours were similar and are part of the Summernats tradition. It works, so don’t change it. At least you have it mostly confined to one area now. i saw sooo many cars getting defected that it isn’t worth cruising into the centre of canberra anymore.
    Summernats is a national icon and should be supported. To say Chic isn’t or shouldn’t profit from the event is stupid. I wouldn’t like to organise something that massive!! He deserves to take a slice of the profits. He has websites to run etc etc
    I just wish people could accept that others have different interests, take their blinkers off and think of the bigger picture. Summernats is about all Canberra had going for it anyway…….. 🙂

So dry your eyes princesses, you’ve been told.

any TV coverage of such protests will keep the pixalators busy.
