    It was mentioned on Off the Ball a few months back alright but I didn't hear anything about it since then.

      I think Heineken should sponser Munster, for all the money we made them in the HCup.

        Anxious for fixtures am looking at a trip to N Italy Venice or Verona, would be great to get a Munster match whilst there.

          I think the delay in naming full fixture lists adds to the "tinpot" feeling of the Pro12 - its an international competition, and if they want fans to support the teams at away games (many of which need a flight/hotel) then it would be beneficial to announce these as early as possible

            Where is the delay?
            Is there any other Northern Hemisphere competition that has announced it's fixture list for 14/15?

              Apologies - I should have been clearer.. The delay in announcing the actual dates, not just the weekend...

                But they can't do that until the broadcasters all agree on them, which takes time. search last seasons thread for the very same queries and very same answers.

                    No, your original point was to degrade the league that Munster play in.

                        Maybe we should sponsor Heineken for all the beer we had?

                          there is part of that agree's with you.
                          We had two brain farts this year, which cost us a Home semi, and a real chance of winning the league.

                          One of those brain farts, was against Glasgow, but we did have THAT game the weekend before, and Glasgow were on the start of their run of good form, still it was the manner of the defeat.

                          Having the right players playing is almost outside of Munsters control as they are not the paymasters.

                          We were near the top of the league for the whole season, maybe we peaked too soon this year.

                            For the last 2 seasons the style of play was appalling & unless you are a diehard supporter, then was no incentive for the casual fan to go to games. We had great starts to the season, but our win/loss record at the business end was shocking.

                              I'm kind of rehashing what's been done to death at end of season here, but... Of course we can't always get all of our first choice players onto the pitch. That is perfectly acceptable to me, because of the set up of Irish rugby.
                              What isn't acceptable is the attitude of the squad as a whole in the final games of the season. In particular, the home games against Glasgow and Ulster. That was simply unacceptable. There was a lot to play for, at least in the Glasgow game and there wasn't one **** given by the entire 23 that night. Some players in the squad seem quite happy to be squad players and not push to become first choice.
                              As somebody else pointed out in the Super Duper Cup thread. If we don't get out of our group next season, we'll be reaping what we sowed at this end of this season. We could have had a better draw, if the team had cared about the league. I'd much rather Glasgow's group than our own, no matter how glamourous the actual fixtures for next season are.
                              Anyway, people are bored of me giving out about this by now, I'm sure, so I'll try and move on.

                                If the team didn't care about the league, they wouldn't have won 16 games out of 22. Self-evidently.

                                Were there more than 10,000 people at the Glasgow match? It must be difficult to give a **** about the league when no-one turns up for a top-of-the-table clash that would have virtually ensured a home semi-final.
