what a bunch of tossers. i hope they don't get paid for that kinda shite effort.

if you are going to use that prehistoric method of launching then put more people on the ropes and take a turn or two around the bollard.

No Qr on the hook either

If you think that was bad, how wrong do you reckon they'll get it with their new toy? I so hope they'll still have the TV crews with them!
