Top 2: SPP confirm rumor

Submitted by The Critic on 15 October, 2006 - 8:33am

The rumor surrounding Top 3 finalist and Matt Saunoa have been confirmed by SPP in this morning's Herald on Sunday.

Controversy is swirling around current NZ Idol favourite Matt Saunoa over the unexplained disappearance of a gaming console from the show's premises.

South Pacific Pictures, the makers of Idol, were unwilling to go into specifics about the matter, but did confirm to the Herald on Sunday Saunoa had taken a PlayStation PSP from NZ Idol - but it had since been returned.

Levin, there is a total Media blackout here. No one knows anything :O

Im so so tempted to paste a link on the local Levin Forum i belong to. But i might walk out of the Pub tonight and find my Car kicked in :O

I don't believe this

I don't believe this issue has had enough exposure in the media to make a difference in this weeks voting... meh.

Gently gently. If it came

Gently gently.
If it came out now then they stand to lose a possible 100,000 txt /0900 votes (revenue) moneys as people will simply turn off the whole show and never watch again. Whoever is in the high places in TV companys will be calling in consultants etc to try figure out a easy way outta this mess with minimal Impact.
glad im not in the high places! I have a theory on what they can do but i better not post it here they might use my idea.

Interesting. S99 i think are holding it all back to wait untill the shows all over and txt/0900 moneys are in. Then let Sunday Tabliods scrap it out over the juicy goss.

If the rumours

If the rumours about  Matt are true then he should be out stealing is stealing  in my book no matter how small.If you do it once than what happens next time.GO INDIRA

Just have to say it

Just have to say it somewhere -

Our Sunday News buddies let me down !

You give us all of the Idol news including the L** S*** crap that we already knew -

Yet when it really matters - your all zippo and dead quiet and let the Herald on Sunday take over ????

Circulation is what makes your world go round - my lovelies ;)  Luv Ev

Yes, Matt did something

Yes, Matt did something wrong. Yes, he stole the PSP. But I still support him. He has a clean criminal record, and he lives in a notoriously backwater town, working at a sawmill with a wife and child to support. Yes, it was stupid, but I don't hold it against him. People have done worse, and you treat him as if he's a convicted murderer. His crime is bad, but the character assassination going on here makes him seem like some sort of kleptomaniac. Which we know he isn't. Anyone for a moment of weakness?

How do we know he isn't a

How do we know he isn't a kleptomaniac?

For those who keep putting

For those who keep putting down Levin, isn't Matt originally from Auckland.  My only other thought on this thread would be that, I would've thought that they would have been given afew perks on idol.  Obviously this hasn't done too much against Matt, as he did end up in the Grand Final.  Goodluck to both of them.

I just got here and seen

What ive heard is that the

What ive heard is that the PSP never left the house. Matt took it from the entertainment room to there bedroom to play it there. When he was asked where it was it was returned. Cant believe all the crap rumours that started out of nothing. He will leave Indira for dead on monday.

The PSP in question wasn't

The PSP in question wasn't at the house in the first place, it was at the production office

Here's a quote from

Here's a quote from Matt:

"I'd like to work with youth, I think I could be a good role model for kids to follow their dreams."

What page was it in the

What page was it in the herald on sunday?  (Just wondering how much coverage or importance it got).  I'm guessing this is going to be 'bigger' news if he makes it through tonight.

Page 21. Its real noticeable

Page 21. Its real noticeable because theres a pic of him with a big bold heading - Idol hopeful under fire

gosh there are none so blind

gosh there are none so blind that cannot see!!!

Whether you defend him or not people, facts are facts and cant be changed.

Carry on burying your head in the sand ostritches

He hasnt been in the bottom two.................till tonight,

Toally agree Traybon facts

Toally agree Traybon :) facts are facts especially when there no facts linking Matt to stealing or taking dishonestly! ostritches keep burying your heads in the sand untill you come back with some quotes

Untill then i picture myself .... Conan the Barbarian standing ontop a Mountain singing We are the Champions

it's a long way to fall on

it's a long way to fall on you ass from up there Chevster

Stealing is wrong, Matt

Stealing is wrong, Matt abused his privaledges as an Idol contestant.  Matt raped the PSP away from the Idol house.  This kind of behaviour shouldn't be justified, it doesn't matter how big or small the act is.  This is a black and white issue, there's no grey to be found.  I hope Indira and Aroha check their belongings knowing they have a 5 finger discount in the house.  And notice how relieved Matt's partner was when Dom said she could have the dress?? I bet Matt would've stolen it if they didn't give it to her.

yer i agree that opinion and

yer i agree that opinion and speculation is great but based on nothing and no fact

time for Noddyland...

I'm sick of these rumours.

I'm sick of these rumours. After reading this post it wasn't a big deal otherwise SPP would have done something about it. So can everyone concentrate on the singers performances instead of what's going on or what's not going on behind the scenes.

Let's focus on the contestants singing abilities.

good idea

Chevy mate, it seems you're

Chevy mate, it seems you're back to your old tricks - I thought you'd pulled yourself out of that black hole of naivety? Wake up bro. Why would SPP issue a press release about Matt merely borrowing a PSP? Get real.

sorry dude i was talking to

sorry dude i was talking to someone here and got real busy. No black hole here that im aware of and im not degrading anyone, but simply just sticking up for the Idol whom i support fully ;)
