Well done Newbury RUFC

Post by BJ. » Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:39 pm

From the Beeb.

I love the comment "You hear cries from supporters who are 150 yards away, but how can they possibly tell?" It's obvious - they're usually in the Shed at Kingsholm. :smt003

Good on Newbury!

Banter with the ref is fine, especially at professional level, but football style abuse/swearing is not on at any rugby ground.

We all have perfect vision on the Crumbie Terrace obviously!! :smt003

I was thinking back to our match down there in '07. It was a 1pm k/o on a Sunday and three of us had arrived early and stationed ourselves in the middle of the Shed smack on the halfway line. I was amazed how the Glaws supporters far to our left could, going by their vocal indications, spot 'forward' passes by Leicester away to our right and those to our far right could see all the forever-cheating Tigers encroaching offside at the other end of the park.

It was a good day out, except for the result. :smt002

I am pleased to say that three of the most abusive of the ref, in the Crumbie, are either not there any more (MOC :smt005 ) or have moved.

I hope this gathers momentum and filters through to Lee Dickson and other abusive players. A return to 'captain only speaks', unless spoken to, would be very welcome IMO.

At least Nigel Owens seems to apply that rule consistently!!

I recall one game where Geordan was captain, and he obviously wanted to speak to the ref about something.... he stood there with his hand in the air like a schoolboy saying "Sir! Sir! Please...Sir!" :smt050

At half time in the Eng v Wales 6N game, the TV people interviewed Joey Barton and asked what he thought of his first rugby game. He said it was a little surreal. Everyone was walking around with pints, everyone was respectful and nobody was chanting abuse at the players or match officials. A fair summary I thought! :smt038

I had something similar when we played Western Force in a pre-season match a year or two back.

Mrs Beej was away in Paris that weekend so a Rams-supporting friend borrowed her season ticket and we caught the train to Leicester. As we weren't driving, I decided we'd have a 'points of the compass' drink before the game, i.e. a pint in one of the bars in each stand. We finished off at the Drogs and, with 15 minutes to go before kick-off, I bought two more pints and said we'd take them to the seats. He was amazed we were allowed to do that plus he was already astonished we could freely walk around the ground without being accosted by stewards.

And people wonder why I stopped going to football matches. :smt002
