    No Haka is better than any Haka

    Disagree.

    The old haka that was done in 07 in the playoffs and 08 during the regular season was better than this new haka.

    i think it should atleast be used sparingly, so that is preserves some semblance of uniqueness, not just to the opposition wholl understand they hold a position of honor, but so our own fans dont get tired of it

    and it should be cut in half timewise

    It's an all or nothing deal. Do you ever see the All Blacks or the Rugby League team not do it?

    Out of curiosity, does the NZ Womens Field hockey team do it too?

    The Trinity Girls Athletic teams need to do this.

    Of course the one in 05 was fun to watch as well. Alex Kautai leading it was the best. I think he led it in 06 as well?

    If it's kept it needs a rework of the verbal tempo. I mean yelling a bunch of Tongan gibiresh at a 100 miles an hour is crap. The only reason the Maori Haka's are half cool is because it's done at a slow steady tempo. Tongan has the disadvantage of too many damn sylables to make a simple sentence. I think less effort should be made at making it make sense to Tongans and more to making it sound cool...like a good lyracist. I mean Louie Louie is one of the best crowd songs I've ever participated it and nobody knows the words, but it ROCKS right?

    and it needs to be shortened significantly.
