Dan CarterDebate raged, albeit in a small circle, about David Moffet’s suggestion that All Blacks should get a government subsidised tax break in an effort to stem the flow of our top sportsmen overseas.

Anything that is government subsidised means that ultimately I’ll end up paying for it – so it’s a stupid idea.

But perhaps here’s a better one…

Dan Carter is thinking of going overseas for a very big pay packet. How about we all get the chance to ‘sponsor’ him to stay! It’d be like owning a piece of Dan Carter. I’m not sure what you’d get in return, but it’d have to be based on how much money you were willing to ‘invest’ in him. For example, anything over $2000 gets you the right to invite Dan home for a cooked meal…

Surely this is no different than sponsoring your son or daughter in the Relay for Life, or the Weetbix Tryathon…

I’m ringing the Rugby Union now. This could be bigger than Telethon, or Wheel of Fortune!
