I have absolutely no idea where you lot are sitting, I'm in the Next Stand, I shout, I support, I express my opinion (loudly) & ocaisionally when the play warrants it I jump to my feet, as do many of those around me.

I've just mentioned it to 'er indoors and the reply was, "they obviously don't sit anywhere near you then".
To The Board ~ you have one season to prove you've got this decision right. More than you gave Marcelo

I hear the cleaners are asking for more cash next season. It's got something to do with having to get rid of so many dead bodies in the Next stand.

The atmosphere yesterday around me was appalling. I said a very very naughty swear word when we went 13-0 down, along the lines of "come on chaps, the support is decidedly sub-par today". It may have featured the word :censored: as well, although I can't be certain.

It's all typified by the type of steward we have. The one near us is 4ft 3, and probably weighs about 6 stone. I call him Killer. He told me to show him my ticket once, I believe I said something like "No", and he had no response. I could taste Killer's fear.

So how do we make the Next stand louder? I suggest the person who shouts the loudest gets to punch Daggers in the face at the end of the game. I would love that. Yesterday when he was doing that god-awful competition he said "I'll walk towards where I'm a bit more liked", presumably meaning the section of the crowd still in the competition. I shouted "keep walking out of the ground then". I would suggest he head back to Grace Road, but I hated him as a cricketer too.

I sit in the Crumbie. I am well retired. I make a lot of noise - particularly renowned for giving advice as to whether to go for the corner, take a scrum or kick at goal.

I have been known (frequently) to offer advice to the refs also.

And of course cheer, shout and generally be hysterical when Tigers score!!

Sammy, is that the steward who on one memorable occassion last year had his programme sticking out of the pocket of his rather oversized florescent coat with the top of the back page showing, the section read simply....."Stand Tall"

I stand in the Crumbie Terrace normally between the clubhouse try-line and 22 (as that's as far in as I can get to still be able to have sufficient space to breath!) and I make plenty of noise, and often have a sore throat by the end of the match! :smt003

Definately got to be the Crumbie terrace, anywhere along there and as near to the players when they run out or stagger back in!
Have regular sore throats and have enjoyed going since 1989, great stress reliever to shout and make some noise as well as hear some dreadful jokes.

Sammy:-
Have arranged for a grassy knole to be contructed and an american/ sniper to be ready for Mr D when he comes a wandering out at half time, trust me there will be no witnesses!!!! :smt023 :smt023
And on the 7th day, god rested, he stood patiently and awaited the green light to start the game from SKY!

Sammy are you proud of your actions?

The stewards are there to do a job not to be intimidated by idiots like you.

I am going to have to get my drum into the A&L stand...I may have to stand at the side though
