Why has the history of the ABs been suddenly turned into "Henry" and Hansen" eras[edit]

Has the article been attacked by an 18 year old with no knowledge of history?

Mobile view sections[edit]

Hey all,

The mobile view of this page has the following sections:

-Coaches -Home grounds -See also -Notes -References -Works cited -External links

all under the Players section for some reason. Can someone fix this please?

Why are there such massive sections on Henry and Hansen?[edit]

The All Blacks have a history of nearly 105 years. Why are there 1200 odd words devoted to 10 years of this under Henry and Hansen and piece meal on the other 95? TheMightyAllBlacks (talk) 21:22, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

@TheMightyAllBlacks: Two reasons: one is that the All Blacks play many more Tests per year than they used to. Another is that this is the encyclopaedia that anyone can edit, and so random editors are much more likely to add material on the match that happened last week than on the 1984 tour of Fiji! I agree it's a problem, and you're welcome to summarise some of the material, or to add more on the team's earlier history. -- Shudde talk 11:32, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Sponsorship of jersey[edit]

The All Blacks jersey previously featured a steinlager sponsorship from 94-99 when the jersey was made by canterbury. The suggestion that AIG is the first jersey sponsor excluding the kit manufacturer is erroneous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A0C:5BC0:40:1090:FC19:6F67:B1B0:CA2C (talk) 12:49, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
