I do apologise to anyone,posters,mods,players,staff alike if I ever offend anyone. It's been a poor season and emotions are running high. I was accused of enjoying our plight recently but nothing could be further from the truth,im gutted at present and fans of other clubs are enjoying rubbing it in immensely!
Could be worse you could be supporting Saints or Quins

If all forum comments were construed as libellous wouldn't we all have been sued by now? Isnt it free speech?
Apparently not when I say things!
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean the Mods aren't after you!
I'm not paranoid. I just don't understand why some of my posts have been deleted for "being off topic" but others haven't. Take a look at the French Rugby thread. There are comments on there that have nothing to do with French rugby but haven't been deleted. It can't be one rule for one and one rule for another.

So, it appears that MOC was coaching the forwards for a while? This + 5 months to get a pucker forwards coach in place smacks to me more about the inadequacies of the board rather than MOC's ability? We can whinge as much as we like but inability of the Tigers to play effective rugby for more than 60 minutes is IMO not just MOC's failure? The players have to fess up to the season's results too and I am sure they will feel very uncomfortable for the next two weeks? I personally did not want nor expect MOC to be at WR for another session, nothing personal but based on his time at Leinster and how they have since transitioned with Cullen and Lancaster. As grumpy as I am after Saturday, seeing glimpses of how they can play and the Tigers missing out on the playoffs, I will be expecting vast improvement given the quality of the Tigers squad. Roll on September! :smt027

Well didn't the likes of Tadhg Furlong and Jack Conan make their Leinster debuts during MOC's tenure, maybe not such a poor judge of a good forward even though not a forwards coach.
I think it's widely known that as the O'Driscoll influence came to a finish Leinster were in a period of transition, MOC got the sharp end of that transition in my opinion.
Lancaster, a cone collector!

Unbelievable!

Someone posts something that could be libellous and it's not deleted, I make a jokey comment, with added emoji as apparently this helps prove it's a jokey comment and it gets deleted!

I really don't get this forum sometimes!
Wondered where it went 😂😂

You know what they say political correctness will be the end of us all :smt023
Even twaddle like this should not be deleted.

The thing with defamation is that to be awarded damages you have to actually prove that you have been damaged. With all respect to my fellow forum posters, I suspect you would have a hard time proving in court that any of our posts have damaged MOC or anyone else. There are many other messageboards making far more serious accusations of people than anything RugbyFlanker has written!

If MOC does sue you RugbyFlanker, I'll defend you in court pro bono. I'm not a lawyer, but I've watched one and a half series of Suits, so you'll be in safe hands :smt023

I will challenge you to s rugby knowledge quiz anywhere anytime.
As for living in the real world some of the things, real things I’ve seen in my 56 years would make you squirm at the very thought.

It s this sort of ridiculous post that keeps me questioning whether I want to be involved in the circus this forum is becoming.
Finally if you don’t thing there is such a thing as libel on the internet I suggest you double check your facts

The irony of this comment :smt005 it is posts such as your original which make this forum a circus...libel on a fans forum for the comments such as those made by Rugbyflanker is just ludicrous

On a lighter note we should actually schedule a fans forum get together along with a quiz :smt023 I would love to actually meet the likes of ellis and establish if all their comments aren't a huge joke on us all

The part where you say I barely know a thing about rugby- I completely disagree. You are 100% incorrect.

Wonder why he would suggest Murphy couldn't possibly be becuase he's one of his best mates now...

Although wouldn't mind Murphy as Head Coach IF he had someone like Henry at DOR level to oversee things and give him advice etc.
