ACM's Hodara Presents Defence

BYM News have published an interview with the ACM's Michael Hodara who presents the best media defence to date.

The full interview can be read here.

We've cherry-picked the eye-catching moments:

  • Some critics are genuine in their wish to prevent the AC from evolving to preserve the status quo; others (unnamed) 'are simply jealous.'
  • Court papers only served on SNG on August 17, 2007 (as justification for SNG/ACM's apparent lack of activity).
  • Case to determine GGYC's wish to accelerate original suit due to be heard in court on 10th September (SNG to reply by 5th September).
  • Port America could support a maximum of 14 teams (12 existing bases, 2 further could be built) - justification for ACM's control of who challenges.
  • Protocol may have been too short and simple. Text is right, perception isn't.
  • Challengers commission replaced with Competitors Commission intended to improve dialogue between 'squabbling' (our inclusion) challengers, the defender and the ACM. Competitor's Commission has met once already.
  • No mention of Challenger Of Record for the second successive statement.
