    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.

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

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.
    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 should try and get out more often. I've seen exactly what he writes of, but with most sets of supporters. Is he suggesting that this behavior is exclusively that of the 16th man or does he just pick on Munster because of their high profile, or maybe because he knows something of it having lived in Cork? Perhaps he should do a piece on all Rugby fans and not just engage in lazy journalism in fingering one set of supporters? I can't deny what he says, but lets see his piece on other supporters.

    So, the essence of this article is that a sober person finds a large group of drunk people annoying?

    This guy is good.

    It's definitely not aimed at me anyway. I was drinking bottles.
