Celeb Fans

Post by longlivethecrumbie » Mon Dec 21, 2020 7:29 pm

One of the more prevelant Twitter accounts has asked fans to post names of any famous supporters of the teams they support. Nobody has suggested any famous Tigers fans. Anyone have any idea if we even have any?

Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

I did read somewhere that Gino D'Acampo is a Tigers fan, but not sure how much truth there is in that.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe Ed Stafford is a fan.

OK, I have to say this and the I'll leave it to others.
Anti - social media and "celebrities" - can there be any thing more representative of the malaise in modern society? The revering of the shallow, the meretricious and the barely talented.

I would hope that a Tigers' crowd would treat "celebrities" with the indifference they deserve - we have rugby to watch.

Me. I like to think. But it could just be narcissism.

Tom Hopper is supposed to be a Tigers fan.
Listening to the pouring rain
Waiting for the world to change
Beginning to wonder if we'll wait in vain
For one fine day
