My god you Kiwis are filthy PIGS. This was disgusting. I was considering taking my family to New Zealand for vacation, but now I am totally turned off.

Just clarify and get a little more perspective; - 1. If they do it, we can too? - 2. It's not as bad as it looks - 3. I've seen worse over seas ... And so on... This report, along with the opinion of anyone is simply a perspective and still very much a truth. In my opinion, nz is the way it is because we don't do what the rest of the world does. Just because someone else does it, does that make it right? Does that make it safe? Does that make it ok? ... Sports, events, parties, discrimination, war, civil war, police brutality and more... I recommend that one way to gain any perspective on this or any issue here or around the world, is to look at the bigger picture around your perspective.

How come you never see such things at all day Wine, Food and Jazz festivals where there is plenty of Alcohol and chances to preload ?Mabey its because Rugby 7s appeal to troglodyte meatheads and trampy girls with no self respect.

I think your reporting of the Sevens was VERY one eyed, I was there and sober and there were of course many many drunken folk. It was my first time there so I can not compare to last year, however the 2 drink limit you claim to be being ignored was started later in the evening and the four packs you filmed could have easily been earlier than that time. I saw the 2 drink limit being enforced everywhere. Also you will always get drinken (and disgusting behaviour) when you assemble 45,000 people. It should be an R18 event perhaps.

Not a good enough effort Wellington. We needed more arrests and evictions. Top stuff to the mad muzza who stole the steam roller though!!

"I walked through town on Saturday night after midnight and it was one of the most offensive things I've ever witnessed" ...that's why you don't walk through town on 7's weekend unless you want to be part of it, that's kind of like driving into town during the santa parade & complaining about traffic issues.

I agree with everyone referring to overseas sports events and parties - having travelled throughout uk and Europe (and enjoyed the parties and events there) the Wellington 7s is the closest nz comes to putting on a good time and in my mind is actually something that could be used a lot more to promote the city and the country. The street party was the tamest I have been to around the world and I certainly wouldn't be looking at the behaviour at the stadium, the waterfront or down Courtney place as anything but people actually getting a chance to have a good party. Yes there are those that misbehave or ruin themselves getting drunk and I appreciate everything that our police and ambulance force do to help out, but did tv3 once interview anyone who wasn't rotten drunk and just enjoying the party? Way to use the media to try and ruin one of the only fun party weekends our country has to promote itself on the world scene. I thought tv3 would be better than that.

Attended many international sporting events in many cities (including the Wellington 7s) I can tell you this is desperate small-minded reporting at its best. Generally this event is well run and compared to some european football events I've attended is tame by comparison. You are going to get a few idiots at every big event where there is alcohol but this kind of journalism is scurrilous in that it is desperately one sided and focusing on the minority. My 59 y o mum has been going to the welly 7s for past 6 years with her group of friends and has never once been frightened or upset by revellers. Tv3, you are the embarrassment not this event. Journalism is about exposing the truth not highlighting the bits you think will make a good story in a weak news night. Shame.

Have you fools been to Hong Kong? The drinking and debauchery there is just as bad and it has been going on since the late 1970s!! Come on, fair's fair. Just because the wellington 7s are in NZ, no need to pick on it.
