Here's a question for International Rugby Board - what part of "Military Dictatorship" don't you understand?
The "Old Farts" at the IRB need to back right off, right now, about Fiji. They have been pressuring the New Zealand Government to relax the travel sanctions so players linked to Commodore Frank Bainimarama's regime can come. What part of "New Zealand is a sovereign nation" don't they understand?
The IRB has taken sides with Fiji big time on this. The New Zealand Government has rightly said no. But with just under 100 days to go to kick-off still IRB chief executive Mike Miller is down here and thinks he can persuade us otherwise.
The IRB hierarchy obviously has a soft spot for a undemocratic military despot. And yes, they probably think we will roll over with Fiji like we have with a lot of other stuff.
We got down on our knees and licked the IRB's boots to bring the Cup here. We are getting owned by the IRB all over the shop - even passing laws that stop fundraising sausage sizzles outside games so the IRB can make all the cash.
So that's why it has to stop with the IRB now trying to influence our foreign policy. The arrogance of the IRB on this is disgraceful. The IRB is trying to act as friend of the rugby nations, and lobby for Fiji which says its team will be weakened if it can't select players with military links.
The hypocrisy of the IRB on this is quite frankly breathtaking. If the IRB wanted to help the developing Pacific rugby nations Fiji, Samoa and Tonga it could relax the ridiculous eligibility laws so international players who have done their time with one nation could turn out for the Islands of their heritage in later years.
I'm talking about the likes of Jerry Collins and Tana Umaga. The IRB doesn't want a bar of this - another disgrace that is holding up the development of the game.
So instead it takes up the case of Fiji wanting the travel ban lifted.
Now Fiji isn't playing fair on this either. Lifting the travel sanction ban might not just apply to players, but to supporters and administrators too. That could mean the Fiji Rugby Union Chairman Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga.
Yes, that's "Colonel" Tikoitoga - the commander of the Fijian Army land forces. He's known as Frank Bainimarama's right-hand man. Fiji won't even release the names of the players it's worried about. If it did that, named say five players, stated their links to the military and offered mitigating factors, then I'm sure New Zealand would consider individual exemptions if the cases were strong.
But Fiji is playing a game here. It's trying to use rugby as a wedge to lend legitimacy to the military regime. As a rugby fan I find that wrong. And I can't believe the IRB is going along with it.
The calls this week for Fiji to boycott must also be dismissed. The sanctions we have against Fiji are not overly severe. The team is still allowed to come here for the World Cup after all - that's never been in doubt. They don't really have the grounds to boycott - they are getting a fair suck of the sav.
A boycott would achieve nothing but pain for Fijians and rugby fans - I hope it's a hollow threat. Because the political reality is this: New Zealand cannot back down on the rather lenient sanctions without making a mockery of itself. We need to bring an end to the meltdown in Fiji without hurting the Fijian people.
It's complicated - and backing down is not part of the solution. Fiji knows what it has to do. Rugby World Cup Minister Murray McCully is on the case. As Foreign Minister, he's got his head around the issues.
But dealing with these IRB boys is no walk in the park. Thankfully McCully is a hardnosed front-rower when it comes to the dark arts of political rucks - but in the build of a first-five.
Will Carling was talking about the English Rugby Football Union when he called them "Old Farts" but the Northern Hemisphere-centric nature of the IRB makes the moniker relevant here.
And on a personal note, I am a big supporter of Fiji. I've loved the "Flying Fijians" since 1987. I've been mates with the Fijian captain, Deacon Manu, for well over 20 years.
I know how proud Big Deacs is of his Fijian heritage. I know how proud Big Deacs is to be able pull on the Fijian jumper. And I will be in the crowds to cheer him on when Fiji play South Africa at the Cake Tin on September 17.
