Zealand bars Mike Tyson as tour debacle looms - 3rd
New Zealand (AP) - In a reversal, New Zealand authorities
on Wednesday barred Mike Tyson from entering the country
whose indigenous Maori people Tyson says inspired
his facial tattoo.
a Downunder speaking tour for the former heavyweight
boxing champion was threatening to fall apart altogether
as Australian immigration authorities said they've
yet to decide whether to allow him into that country.
Tickets for appearances in New Zealand and five major
Australian cities in November are still being promoted
by a Sydney agency.
1992 rape conviction would normally prevent his entry
in New Zealand and could be grounds for denial in
Australia as well. He had been granted an exemption
for New Zealand before that visa was cancelled Wednesday,
days after the prime minister spoke out against the
was to speak at a November event in Auckland, the
"Day of the Champions," which is being promoted
by Sydney agency Markson Sparks!
Zealand's Associate Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson
said she'd initially granted entry because a children's
health charity would get some of the proceeds from
Tyson's speech. She said in a statement her decision
was "a finely balanced call" but that the
charity that would have benefited, the Life Education
Trust, withdrew its support Tuesday.
that the trust is no longer supporting the event,
on balance, I have made the decision to cancel his
visa," Wilkinson wrote in her statement.
charity's chief executive, John O'Connell, however,
said the charity long ago decided not to accept any
money from the event due to its concerns over Tyson's
character, but that a volunteer trustee had mistakenly
sent a letter to immigration authorities supporting
a spokesman for Australia's Department of Immigration
and Citizenship said "I can tell you that a decision
is still pending" on Tyson's application for
an Australian visa.
criminal history could prevent him from obtaining
an Australian visa. Would-be visitors normally must
pass a character test. Those with a "substantial
criminal record" - which by the immigration department's
definition includes people who, like Tyson, have been
sentenced to more than a year in prison - would fail
the test. But the department can still use its discretion
to grant a visa.
Sparks! has been advertising tickets for Tyson's Australian
appearances at between 69 and 300 Australian dollars
($71 and $308).
promoter Max Markson said he'd been "hoping it
might be a smoother run with Mike Tyson" but
that he remained confident Australia would grant Tyson
a visa and that New Zealand would reverse its decision
when he found another suitable charity.
only be in the country for 20 hours, I don't think
he's a danger to anybody, and thousands of people
want to see him," Markson said of Tyson's planned
New Zealand leg.
said he's continuing to sell tickets to the planned
speeches in both countries and that buyers will get
a full refund if the shows are cancelled. He said
he had immigration lawyers in Australia, New Zealand
and the U.S. working on the case.
to the APNZ news agency this week from Las Vegas before
his New Zealand visa was cancelled, Tyson said his
tattoo was inspired by those worn by New Zealand's
indigenous Maori. In pre-European times, many Maori
wore elaborate facial tattoos as a sign of their status
in their tribe. Some Maori today who identify strongly
with their traditional culture get similar tattoos.
told the agency that, aside from their tattoos, he
knew little about the Maori people "so I'm looking
forward to come down there and see them."
Minister John Key spoke to media against the planned
visit this week, questioning the decision by immigration
authorities and saying he personally disapproved of
the visit given Tyson's conviction for such a serious
his visa was cancelled, Tyson told APNZ: "Fortunately,
I am coming to New Zealand and there's nothing they
can do about it and I'm so sorry, I'm sorry they feel
disappointed and I'm just living my life."

commentators are at the front line with frequent betting

Media and Racing King John Singleton Drives Forward
Pro Pokies Ad Push...
"Singo" Singleton, who happens to love
a punt himself, in the man and the brains behind the
$20 million advertising campaign by the Aussie clubs
against the Julia Gillard government's slot machine
Gillard government is hell bent so it seems to implement
the "problem gambling" reforms to retain
whatever support might remain from Tasmanian "devil"
(satire) "independent" Andrew Wilkie.
ad firm Banjo has developed a media and public relations
campaign to focus on recreational gamblers' fears
of having any government 'Big Brother' spying on their
betting habits. Yep, we kid you not. Australia's are
being spied on, and pokie palaces may turn into one
of the ultimate evil "eyes in the sky",
that may end up making Google Earth and Google Maps
look like child's play.
Banjo deal for a cool $20 mil, running for 2 years,
started with online video and newspaper adverts. It
will then pick up even more stream via radio, television,
billboards and even pub coasters. Australian newspapers
have already been giving the news story strong mileage
and its taking on a life of its own, with most gamblers
hating what they hear of government 'Big Brother'.
clubs is dead against a mandatory scheme for players
to register before playing poker machines, using so
called smartcards (not so smart say European trials)
and self-selected gambling limits (which can be manipulated).
leak said "Clubs Australia said that gambling
revenue will drop considerably as recreational gamblers
get pissed with the government and clubs, and will
take more to online gambling "like a duck to
water". This is right on the money and cards.
The 'Big Brother' approach is a false solution - actually,
its no solution. It's a smokescreen and spin. The
public are not that stupid, they are actually quite
smart, and Labor has underestimated Australians intelligence
once again. No wonder Labor lost the NSW state election".
and a consortium of investors, including the investment
banker Mark Carnegie, the retail king Gerry Harvey
and ex Qantas chief executive Geoff Dixon, have purchased
high-profile Sydney pubs including Kinselas, the Bellevue
Hotel and Peakhurst Inn. Singleton also jointly owns
the Hotel Steyne in Manly.

Families Minister, Jenny Macklin, said ''The government's

Seek Woman Punter Re NRL Cowboys - Bulldogs Betting
have released CCTV images of yet another punter they
want to speak to about an alleged NRL betting scam.
The images were captured at a Browns Bay betting outlet
in Auckland, New
Zealand, between 4.50pm and 5.15pm on August 20
last year - the day before the game between the Bulldogs
and North Queensland Cowboys, police advised. The
woman was described as being aged in her 20s, with
a slim build, shoulder-length hair and of Caucasian
appearance. She was wearing a dark-coloured zippered
hooded jacket, blue jeans and carrying a red handbag
and was seen pushing a young boy in a pram, police
said. She returned to the betting facility about 5.35pm
on August 21. Police said in a statement that they
were not alleging she had done anything illegal, but
said investigators wanted to find out who she was
so they could speak to her. Player agent Sam Ayoub
and ex-player John Elias have been charged in direct
relation to the betting inquiry, while now ex-Bulldogs
prop Ryan Tandy has been charged with four counts
of giving false or misleading evidence to a NSW Crime
Commission hearing. Among the charges Tandy faces
is one of giving false evidence about having placed
a bet on a game between the Bulldogs and Gold Coast,
also last year. The charges against Ayoub and Elias
followed an unusual plunge on a betting option that
the first points of that game would come from a penalty
goal. Tandy was penalised two minutes into the game
for impeding Cowboys playmaker Grant Rovelli in front
of the posts. The Cowboys were awarded a penalty,
but took a tap kick instead of kicking for goal. Tandy,
29, pleaded not guilty to all charges during his appearance
in Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court on March 3.
Meanwhile, St George Illawarra can finally get down
to concentrating on their 2011 following Wayne Bennett's
decision to leave the club at the end of the season.
The coach's announcement has removed the largest cloud
hanging over the Dragons' premiership defence, with
the constant innuendo and rumour having played a part
in the side's sluggish start to the year. While the
issue won't be fully resolved until Bennett reveals
where he will coach next season, back-rower Ben Creagh
said news of the coach's impending departure would
at least focus the players' efforts on getting the
most out of the time he had left. While the appointment
of Bennett's right-hand man, Steve Price, and the
retention of much of the same squad for 2012 should
ensure a smooth transition to the new era, the Dragons'
best chance to win another premiership in the near
future would surely be while Bennett is the man.
Boss Hits The Jackpot...
Odell, chief exec of Aussie pokie manufacturer Aristocrat,
has hit the jackpot on an 'one armed bandit', if you
follow the lingo. Odell snatched 24% jump in total
pay to $2.5 million last year, despite Aristocrat
putting out another very average result. The chief
executive's base pay in the period increased 19% to
$1.25 million. Aristocrat's normalised profit after
tax dropped 53% in 2010. One of the resolutions at
the upcoming June AGM in Sydney to be voted on by
shareholders is a grant to Odell of 1.02 million performance
share rights as part of his long-term incentive package.
The rights, which would be granted over a 3-year period,
are performance based. If Aristocrat happens to outperform
the ASX 100 by more than 10% cent each year, Odell
will snatch 30% of the shares. He will get 70% of
the shares if he hits certain earnings targets. Will
he meet his targets and hit the Gold Mega Jackpot?
Stay tuned to find out. Aristocrat is also currently
working on a number of b2b deal with online casino
operators which are also tipped to return a healthy
jackpot to the company, as well as hours of fun for
