NZ Herald 23 Sept 2013A group of the country’s most senior police officers have attacked plans to allow city bars to stay open three hours later than pubs in the suburbs, warning people will hop in their cars and head for the bright lights after drinking at their local.They say it will result in greater drunken disorder, violence and road crashes, but a council discussion paper dismissed their suggestions for changing a booze-swilling culture as unjustified.A deputation of Acting Assistant Commissioner Bill Searle, Auckland City District Commander Mike Clement and prevention manager Inspector Gary Davey met the council before it considered recommendations from the council’s community safety committee.Led by councillor George Wood, a former police manager, the forum proposed a closing time of 3am for bars in the CBD with a one-way door policy starting at 2am for both CBD and city fringe areas such as Ponsonby, Parnell, Takapuna, New Lynn, Albany and Manukau.Maximum trading hours in the suburbs could be 8am to 1am.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11128563
Assistant coach Todd Alexander said the practice justifies his optimism in his club that they can get things turned around from their 0-2 start.“I’m always optimistic until I’m proven wrong and then as soon as I’m proven wrong I shake my head and then I’m optimistic again. I think that’s how our team needs to be. You have to have a short term memory in sport. Sometimes things happen and that’s the way it is but the guys that can shake it off and get back in there and fight another day are the ones that we’re looking for,” he explained.The Huskies are still working to shore up their play in their own zone and get use to playing within their system before their home opener next Friday.- Advertisement -“We’re still working on our d-zone coverage. That needs to get a lot better as we’re allowing too many shots and too many goals. That’s not our identity; it never has been here. We’re not a run and gun team; we don’t want to run and gun. We want to play good, solid defence and take care of our opportunities when they unfold in front of us,” Alexander said.The home opener for the Huskies will be on October 17 against the Fairview Flyers. After that their next tilt will be on the road against the Beaverlodge Blades on October 22.
