first of all i wanna say hello to everyone on the site. this is my first post so let me tell you a little bit about myself.


im a huge munster fan, im 28 years old and ive just moved back to ireland after living in new zealand for 4 years.


ok........ lets get to the topic, was drinking in my local saturday night wearing one of my munster jerseys when one of the lads i used to play rugby with (hes a huge leinster fan) started chatting to me about the new thomond park. he showed me some pics on the phone and i was well impressed with the new stadium.


he then told me he was at the ospreys game last season and wore his leinster jersey. his wife is die hard munster and her dad got them tickets . he said some of the munster supporters didn't see the joke and started heckling and insulting him and his wife (she was wearing her munster shirt). it got so bad they had to leave.


so im asking the forum is this a common occurance or is it just a select few supporters who have developed a hatred for leinster.


all opinions welcome, thanks guys smileys/smile.gif

Happens quite a lot, I am surprised he was allowed to leave of his own volition

Tbf, I don't agree with him being heckled, but I don't see what your
mate was hoping to achieve by wearing the jersey?

Heckling is one thing but insulting the man and his wife is another. I agree with DB that he brought it upon himself but christ who care's what jersey he is wearing. There would be alot of kids in TP that heard the insulting and left thinking it is the norm which is wrong.

TBF if it was an ulster/connacht supporter wearing his ulster/connacht jersey there would probably be no problem - a bit sad I think - shouldn't happen...

FFS lads. The man has a right to wear whatever jersey he wants and shout for whatever team he wants without getting abuse from anyone. A bit of friendly banter is fine but heckling and abuse is wrong, plain and simple. smileys/sad.gif

In fairness its a bit of a mad thing to do unless your team is playing but you and whoever you are with shouldnt get hassled for it. You should be able to wear what you want.


On the other hand if someone wears socks and sandals they should be shot on sight. Its only right.

A wum is a wind up merchant and basically it means that any time someone posts anything negative about the home side on it, it's only done as a cheap way to get a reaction from certain posters. The bile between leinster and munster is higher than the other provinces so it probably did happen - you're always bound to get a few cock ends in every ground that'll say something. No need for it but it's gonna keep happening.

Fair enough and at any other match that wouldn't be a problem but tickets were like golddust that day. There islittle animosity between the fans anyway, mostly a bit of slagging.

Ah here, there were loads of people trying to get tickets for that match. Fine, wear a leinster top on a day where we are playing Leinster. I'd expect a fair bit of banter to be fair. then again i wore my munster jersey to the Dublin V Westmeath leinster semi coz i had it on fr the neilyoung gig after. A bit of craic i can tell you. But you get people everywhere who go neyond the banter.

You mean to saythat they aren't a Dublin team (and please spare me the Reggie Corrigan simplicities)? And when some plummy-accentedtossers are acting the maggot its 'banter' , but off us rough culchies its 'abuse'.

I'm not sure why someone would wear a Leinster jersey, to a Munster v Ospreys match, but he has the right to wear what he wants to wear.

He was probably unfortunate to be near a couple of tossers. Most Munster fans, that would feel the need to make a comment, would have gave a bit of friendly slagging.

Is this type of stuff a by product of a bigger stadium? Had loads of advantages, maybe has a few disadv's aswell.

Someone should be able to wear what ever jersey they want. What applied at the H Cup final is also relevant in TP.


This Leinster - Munster thing has gonetoo far, and it is only a matter of time that someone is assaulted because of the jersey they were wearing. Most people know where to draw the line with banter, but there are idiots who don't.


English football in the 70's did not tackle hooligan behaviour when it started and look where that went.


Edit: And ifan incidentdoes happen, the Irish Times with their 'sad' comment can also take some of the blame.

Ah bless there's a tissue for ya darlin.

I don't think anyone here needs to go into some of the things they experienced at Leinster games in Dublin. I mean build a bridge.

Those tickets were gold. He strolls in wearing his Leinster jersey while you've got Munster supporters at home who couldn't get tickets having to watch it on tv. Ya he might have ended up sitting next to a tool and got a bit of abuse, but you'll get those type of people wherever you go. Especially if it's a HC quarter final and the tickets were like fairy dust. He was always going to get some sort of "heckling." I'd say abuse is going to far, I'd say it was a bit of typical banter and he got a bit too sensitive.

reckon everyone has stories about what happened to them wearing their own colours at a match they are not involved in,my own brother living in yorkshire drove to edinburgh wore a blue t shirt to heineken cup final along with 6 of his pals wearing munster jerseys,he said some of the abuse they got at the final from a small band of leinster supporters was awful,one guy a d4 as my brother called him was going on and on with what the f**k are ye doing here wearing that f*****g jersey spoiling our daysmileys/shock.gif

just making the point its not uncommon and unfortunately all clubs have that kind of element supporting them and some of them even post on supporters websites constantly ,aka wum's.

You are very easily "Pissed off" - a bit of anger management perhaps ?

I chose to wear my Munster shirt to the Final.I was with friends..1 wearing Leinster colours and the rest just t-shirts etc.


Mostly friendly banter although as the night went on my friend in the Leinster jersey got stick and nasty comments about hanging out with the Munster scum etc.


All this came from lads in late teens early 20's,We are all in our 40's so laughed most of it off but got the feeling that there is a lot of hatred there amongst the younger up and coming fans.


Looking back We felt that there seemed to be an under current there that I think will at some stage lead to violence.smileys/sad.gif

Up untill the semi final i would have welcomed any leinster supporter, the s**t myself and the wife got before and after the game was unreal and again in murryfield and no munster jersey over there, so to hell with them. Also where did the c**t get a ticket. They where hard to get for that game with out wasting one on him.

Many munsterfans wore red at the final this year , i did not in anticipation of abuse or so call WUMing bater, I was in a group of 7 or so munster fans many who wore the home jersey, a small minority of LFdid land outbanter thatcould be interpreted as abusebut it was a small minority, most LF were very glad we came out and cheered for them.


There isoften a thin line difference between banter and abuse , often the people handing out abuse think it is actually banter butit comes down to different sense of humours ,whilst some people are over sensitive , somehave an aggressive sense of humour, some are insecure A***holesthat try toput others down to build their own status.


Personnelly I couldnt care less what shirt the guy was wearing as long as he raised his voice for Munster. If he was lucky enough to get a ticket then Sin Sin, his wife was there.


The rivalry between us and leinster is good, good banter between fans, good rivalrybetween the squads the competition means we both push oursleves forward to better each other for the better of Irish Rugby ,although i cheered for leinster in the final i will be cheering against themnext year untilwe are out and then I will back the Irish teams.


For gods sake not lets turn into football fans, our sportdeserves much better from us.

Maybe he was there to give 2 fingers to Munster fans who couldn't
get a ticket to that match.

Or maybe I'm bitter and twisted that I couldn't go to the game.

first of all i wanna say hello to everyone on the site. this is my first post so let me tell you a little bit about myself.


im a huge munster fan, im 28 years old and ive just moved back to ireland after living in new zealand for 4 years.


ok........ lets get to the topic, was drinking in my local saturday night wearing one of my munster jerseys when one of the lads i used to play rugby with (hes a huge leinster fan) started chatting to me about the new thomond park. he showed me some pics on the phone and i was well impressed with the new stadium.


he then told me he was at the ospreys game last season and wore his leinster jersey. his wife is die hard munster and her dad got them tickets . he said some of the munster supporters* didn't see the joke and started heckling and insulting him and his wife (she was wearing her munster shirt). it got so bad they had to leave.


so im asking the forum is this a common occurance or is it just a select few supporters who have developed a hatred for leinster.


all opinions welcome, thanks guys smileys/smile.gif

Is it just me or is a bit silly to be wading in on either side, without actually knowing what was said. Forgive me if I missed it, little tired to read every single line. But what is heckling to one person, is banter to another.


Some people are not able for crowds. Like the muppets in the stands that don't like people jumping up to celebrate a try etc.

Tbf, I don't agree with him being heckled, but I don't see what your
mate was hoping to achieve by wearing the jersey?


Because it's better then going in the nude. What he was hoping to achieve was to watch a game of rugby what the f**k does it matter what he wears of for what reasons.


What do you want a soccer style grounds where there is a dress code. Munster fans there should have backed him to the hilt.

Unless he was being provocative with the intent of drawing a reaction. You've no idea what some of that leinster crowd are like smileys/wink.gif. Look at Dave Cahill for example.....


Or, maybe this has all been blown out of proportion/made upby the OP ?
