Hubbard, James, 1949- :World Cup Free to Air TV bids. October 2009
Prime Minister John Key is the referee in a rugby game between two teams of enormous aggressive players who represent 'Maori TV' and 'TVNZ TV3'. He says, looking very troubled, 'Now,er,um,touch,and ah.. Pause kinda.. and, maybe, sorta, er.. like.. engage????' One player leaps up from the scrum with the ball that is printed with the words 'World Cup Free to Air TV bids'. Context - The bitter row over Maori Television's bid to broadcast Rugby World Cup matches. The joint bid with TVNZ will be led by MTS (Maori Television Service) and ensure nationwide free-to-air cover of 16 World Cup matches.
