    Oh shut up you old fool!

    I've been going to Munster games for well over 10 years and I have never once seen the hint of a fight or confrontation. If people want to go and drink themselves sober then so be it...go pedal your curtain-twitching puritanism elsewhere...

      He does seem a bit peevish........If I recall correctly there was a nice crowd at the Mun V Aus game in 1992

        Yup. I was at it. It was pretty jammers. And it cost more than £1, I can confirm.

          If you're watching the game so intently how do you manage to see so many piss artists heading for the Ajax? I myself, incidentally enjoy a pint or two during the match. Should I remain abstemious to be the perfect supporter, hardly I think.

              What a bull**** article. Poorly written too, had no ebb n flow as they say.
              1. Rugby fans drink at games!!!
              2. If you did'nt go to munster games before 1995 then your not a real supporter!!!
              3. Attending a rugby match is a serious cerebral experience, craic, cheering and merriment must be discouraged.

                Mr. Ronan Early seems to have been trying to make some sort of living reporting on Munster matches for the past few years.
                But he mainly covers GAA, horse racing, even football before rugby.
                His other article about the match, http://irishpost.co.uk/index.php/com...mpant-munster- has a fantastic sign off line

                  Ah Jandek, I havent seen your bile spouted around here for a while!! Where in my post did I mention anything remotely related to fighting and/or confrontation? Please repost my original post and hightlight those words please, I'm awaiting your response.

                  I get to as many games as I can dipstick, those I cant get to I watch on the telebox, when I'm at a match it can be hard to miss the at times steady stream of people walking in and out in front of me. The theme of my original post was that we do have some people who are more interested in the beer that the pitch, not all but some, the Good Friday game stood testament to that on the North Terrace anyway.

                  Are we so precious that an article describing less than perfect behaviour by some/few supporters is to be treated as heresy? Newsflash...we have supporters who are less than perfect...Leinster have supporters who are actually sound people.....not all Ospreys wear fake tan!!!

                    Fair enough Grandpa, I overreacted. Maybe I'm getting too sensitive in my old age I guess.

                      Anyone who spends more time drinking than watching clearly isn't obsessive about the game.

                      Just as anyone who writes for the Irish Post isn't seriously committed to being a journalist.

                        People have a few beers whilst on a rugby trip. Big deal. Some can't handle it, and more can't. I saw 2 poor examples of those that can't last w/e on the train from MK to Euston. There was a horrible barf on the train - a right mess. In addition a group of people made a lot of noise getting off a train at Euston - no great issue except the danger of them being mistaken for rowdy soccer fans.

                          A few friends of mine should be seriously committed BB if I could get enough white coats. This tapatalk is the business isn't it? Normally, I would never use the internet in the bog as I usually devote my time to the primary task. But this is fun and why are my legs gone dead?
