How disappointing at the end of the game!

Post by congonutty » Sat May 07, 2011 9:35 pm

Is it just me or do the fellow supporter feel abit peeved that the Tiger players didn't do a lap of honour at the end of the Irish game? London Irish did!

I know we have 1 hopefully 2 games to go but i would of thought it would of been nice for a team that has finished 1st in the league at the final league game at home to appreciate the 24,000 home crowd.

Lets hope they do next week

Wouldn't have expected them to after that, or at least 72 minutes of that. And besides, they had no chance to do so with Cockers getting them all out there to say his piece.

Why would they do a lap of honour? They haven't won anything and we have another home game.

I wouldn't expect them to when we win next week either. Laps of honour are for thanking fans at away games or when you have a trophy.

Black eyed peas was played a bit later. Rather aptly played the great escape at the final whistle :smt023

If Laps of Honour are for thanking their travelling fans at away games, why do we not see Tigers thanking fans at away games?

It seems as if Tigers are the only team that don't show appreciation to the fans that have travelled to support their team.

Most away games I've been to, they have done just that. Sometimes quite later admittedly, but I have seen it done.

Well this season I have been to the Northampton, Saffrecans, Leeds & Newcastle games & have not been lucky enough to witness anything but the team disappearing into the changing rooms, mind you, it was raining a bit at Leeds & did turn a bit chilly in Newcastle so I don't know if that was why.

The only time I've seen Tigers do any form of lap of honour is when there's been a trophy at stake. I certainly don't recall them doing it at any away matches.

I've never thought of it as bad thing that they don't instead i think it reflects well on their expectations i.e. that they expect to win and don't feel the need to go and thank for fans for making the effort to come and support them

They all came round the pitch and applauded every pocket of Tigers fans at the recent Quins game.

They came out again after the match at Sandy Park.
Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

Those that stayed to watch the U19 game (which was a good open game) saw many of the players hanging around with the fans after the game....

Been to all the away games since Christmas except Leinster and winning games is enough thanks!Having said that the Tigers often go to where the fans are to thank them after the game. No need for laps of honour unless you win a final and the players knew yesterday that if they play like they did against Irish the season will be over next week anyway! I was more impressed to see Cockerill and the team in a huddle in the middle of the pitch already turning the focus to next week. Well done on an amazing comeback.
