Booing

Post by fentiger » Sun May 05, 2019 7:31 pm

Noticeable how the crowds at many grounds are booing the slightest thing they disagree with.
It's now spreading to board level... camera pans to Bruce Craig today at Bath who's clearly giving it some! Certainly hasn't enhanced my opinion of him!

You may, a lot don't! It's certainly more endemic at other grounds.

For goodness sake, why do a lot of posters on here have a problem with Bruce Craig, he is passionate about his team and an owner who only wants the best for the game of rugby.

As far as I am concerned the jury is still out on Mr Craig's benefits to the game of rugby!
I don't have a problem with him per se but imagine the outrage here and elsewhere were, say, Peter Tom spotted behaving in that way?

The officials should be respected an for a Senior figure seen to be booing a decision made does not sit well and does not send out a good message. Leaders lead by example.

I don't boo really, prefer to stamp when disagreeing with an officiating call. I only tend to boo when I have to, for example the presence of one Callum Clark.

I didn’t hear any booing this weekend when Will Skelton was being binned for Sarries. Although I think the crowd were more relived that it was just yellow and forgot to boo.

Booing to me is unnecessary, and should have no place in the game. However it does exist, and it's not going to go away.

I’m in complete agreement. He booed a refereeing decision which was correct, which is not the kind of example he should be giving. Once again, he’s Bruce Craig, so perhaps we shouldn’t expect too much.
