The front page story on rugby fans was correct.
The importance placed on rugby by the media in this
country leads the fans to think they can do what they want "
because it's our game".
This includes drinking themselves into a stupor. It also I'm
afraid leads them to sharing the sounds and smells of certain
body functions with all and sundry! This includes nurping,
farting, and peeing in front of women and children - nice!
Then comes the language. People wanting to watch the game are
subjected to a barrage Fs, Bs and Cs about the opposition,
the ref and other supporters - nice!
I was at the England - Georgia game the other night and the
lack of all of the above made it a far more pleasant
experience than games involving Kiwi teams Im afraid, sorry
This world cup is going along nicely, it would be a shame if
our visitors go home with a vision of a pissed, burping ,
farting, swearing rugby fans, instead of the good things NZ
Just as an aside, I was asked by an English fan if NZ wanted
to win the world cup or just the money visitors bring, as the
news was full of speculation on how much the country would
make. Old poker adage " don't count the money at the table"
not a good look!
