    Ye are clearly all alcoholics.

    Why is a match associated with a few beers?

    Ye are worse than the soccer crowd.

    Same way there are lager-louts donning jerseys with CAT, Bank Of Ireland, Mazda, Jewson and Peugeot on them.

    Point is, I have a theory that Europe and particularly SKY are sick of us hogging the accolades of being passionate, knowledgeably etc. Hence they have an orgasm whenever a team like Gloucester or Wasps turn in a massive performance.

    They will nit pick and find fault in the red shadow that has ruled Europe for the majority of the competition and now even our home journalists want to tear us down.

    GREAT! Let them! The more I hear theses kinds of stories, the better it is! Yes Mr Greenwood, Munster ARE indeed no challenge to the Heineken! Yes faceless journalists, our fans are all drunken yahoos who's sole interest in Heineken is the drink, not the cup! Keep it going for fecks sake! Hopefully they'l try to level an allegation of bribery or match fixing or something of the sort somewhere down the line! Jealousy really does become you! :D

    1 or 2 drunken fans represent the 70,000 in 2006? Sure why not! Whatever makes the printers roll! :D
    The Bribery debate was around for a while and then ye got rid of Buckley all sorted.

    What about yourself?
    Early '90's. And thankfully, I didn't share the same experiences that were so clearly formative of your future penchants...

    Personally, on the drink-issue, I can hardly eat never mind drink before a game with the stomach-churning nerves.
    It was a great day, mind. A proper, no-holds barred, baying-for-blood festival. One of Claw's finest hours.

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

    Yep, "Rugby fans drink too much on away trip" and his other headlines "Ursine predator defecates in Arboreal area" and "Prominent German ex-cardinal declares he is definitely not Protestant"

    I didn't know that the European Cup was named after Heineken. Brilliant journalism, maybe he'll replace S "God's gift to rugby" Jones at the Sunday Times.

    Like a look of folk I steer clear of the ale before kick-off. Post match is a different matter though.

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

    I was just by half-way on the stand side. Just by where Claw clocked Garrick Morgan, Morgan thought it was Gaillimh, clocked him, and all hell finally broke loose. :D

    tell ye what I find annoying - a fella that has bought into nawthin to do so I'll knock up a few myths - Copper Faced Jacks and the Heino is what our neighbors who wear blue go and the Heino is what they call the Heineken Cup. As for getting into TP for £1 to see an international (even in '92....)....wtf? I reckon Ronan doesn't even know where TP is; He may even have been to Donnybrook and Kiely's, but I'd put any money that he never even ventured within 2 miles of Hassett's Cross. That article has all the signs of being written while recovering from the sauce (too many Heino's Ronan...?).

    He's a troll - ignore him.

    BTW, he'll earn no plaudits in Dublinn for this ráméis either. Daly's men are looking all right at the end of winter from the trimming they are currently giving the lads from Birr and surrounds. Hurlin' is also a man's game - but I doubt Ronan would understand that either.....
