Lately this discussion has been seen all over the place. What region is 'The Bay' people from Hawkes Bay and most other places will tell you The Bay is Hawkes Bay, idiots from the Bay of Plenty will say that they are the bay even though we all know they are the BOP.

There has been an idea floating round that will introduce 'the right to be called The Bay' this will be decided when the Steamers and the Magpies battle in the Air NZ Cup. There has also been talks of a 'The Bay' Shield being introduced.

Search through facebook and you're guaranteed to stumble across a few groups dedicated to either side.

Even in the local Hawkes Bay rag had an aritcle about it...here it is.




Our regional rival is baying for blood on Facebook

A feud that may have been brewing below the surface for decades between "the Bay" and "the real Bay" has now come to light online, sparking a Facebook fight over which bay is which.

Rob Sharp, a staunch supporter of Bay of Plenty and all it has to offer, last year launched a Facebook group entitled I Hate People Who Call Hawke's Bay The BAY!.

Not very creative, rather straight to the point. But then again, he could be following in the footsteps of their ancestors.

"There is plenty of stuff here," one settler may or may not have said to the other. "Let's name it the Bay of Plenty."

Says it all, really.

"The bay is undoubtedly the Bay of Plenty," Rob went on to say on the group page.

It soon became apparent that Rob was not the only who has felt a little bitter about coming second to "the Bay" of Hawke.

Over the past few months, Rob's group page has rallied together 384 fans, fiercely in love with the Bay of Plenty. "Dawkes Bay Fagpies. Bay all the Way Bay!" said one supporter. "Hawke's Gay," said another.

That type of criticism hasn't been taken lightly by our local supporters, like Mark Henderson - who fired one back where we know it hurts the most.

"Stop choking in the Air New Zealand Cup, then you'll earn the right to be called the Bay," he said.


Ah, the Bay of Plenty Steamers, the team that hasn't managed to steamroll the Hawke's Bay Magpies since 2006..

Rochelle Buglass, an ex-pat now based in Wellington pointed out that friends from the more northern bay state their specific hometown when asked where they're from. "I don't think you will find anyone from Bay of Plenty who would reply 'The Bay'. I know this because I live with three people from up that way. They always reply with Tauranga or The Mount. Now when I get asked, I always say The Bay - and people KNOW I am referring to Hawke's Bay without any need of clarification."

It's an argument that could go on forever, or at least until the BOP Steamers earn back the honour and the issue can be left at bay until next time.

So as you can see this has turned into quite a bitter argument. Who do you think deserves to be called 'The Bay' . Watch what you say as I have the power to ban you Very Happy

I'd say neither the real Bay would have to be the Alf Stewart Coached Summer Bay some outstanding Talent has come thru over the years (coughs laughs spulters).
