    Was at it myself, as a youngfella. Got to chat with John Eales who was standing on the terraces & Campo was walking up & down on the crowd side of the wall

    Well, I for one dont get out a whole pile these days so I love when theres a match on to meet a few of the lads. Town is always a craic after the big games. Couldnt see it being half as good if everyone went to the match, sang SUAF or The fields (hate that one by the way) then got back in the car and went home. Rugby to me was always about the few pints, from the ones I had after playing J3 in the middle of no-where on a pitch with a hill to the ones after the big Heineken games or THE one against the All Blacks. I never got to the stage where I needed a trip to Bushy Park the next day or a trip to the regional to be pumped out. A few of the nights were hazy alright but I still got home in one piece. To me the pints, the match and a kebab sauce tie are a great night out. But I suppose you'll always get your few apes that drink til they pass out, throw up or start fighting. I cant understand how everyone can get the label of being piss heads after rugby because of that few though.

    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.

    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.

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

    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!!!

    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

    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.

    To be fair there is merit to what he is saying, there is an element who do only go for the drink and the session and have little or no interest in the game. When I watching a game I wouldnt even eat a sandwich as it'd cause me to take my eyes off the game, how many lads do you see streaming to the bar and of course the toilets.

    Of course the truth hurts at times and the fact that not each and every one of us isnt the bestest fan in the world is neither surprising nor a reason to tar a whole province with the same brush.


    A brave and faithful post Grandpa
