readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Do you think Wellington needs a new indoor arena for major concerts?
Stephen Dacomve-Bird, Island Bay “Kerry Prendergast said don’t build it unless everyone uses it. It would be good to have something of national significance.”
Pepe Becker, Island Bay “Can they not extend the existing one? We need more money for other things like fixing roads.”
Ben Wylie van Eerd, Hataitai “I’m not fussed about it. It might be a good idea but not something that enflames my passions.”
Ross Bell, Strathmore “There is a much greater need for social housing in Wellington than for that.”
Donald McDonald, Newtown “Not a good idea. TV, radio and the media has created a sick society. Concerts are not my cup of tea.”
Eamon Lyons, Lyall Bay “I’m all for it. The sound in TSB Arena is awful. A public/private partnership could build it.”

All Blacks overpaid, unprofessional Dear Editor, Our overpaid male so called professional rugby players should take a hike. Stay on the field and out of the bedroom. Fights, drunkenness’s, stripers, toilet
lurking, coke, seem to be the norm in the modern game and it really takes my biscuit that loser Hansen spends more time on TV sugar laden ads seeking the moral high ground. All of these overpaid show ponies and the NZRU should go!
Thank Allah that my children and grandchildren is school no longer supports this close to legal violent game because of the reality of concussion! The game died with Pinetree. RIP Rose Wu Kilbirnie
