    I think I want Ralph Fiennes to play Mallinder. He's gonna be a reeeaaalllyy seedy character. Underhanded and corrupt. After Northampton beat Ulster in the quarter finals Mallinder bribes Ulster to injure several Leinster players in the ML semi. He asks them to injure O'Driscoll, O'Brien, Healy, Strauss and Ross.
    Ulster are all "what about Johnny Sexton?" and Mallinder laughs and says "Don't waste your time. He's useless!"

    I should do this for a living!

    Sounds like something that should have Leonardo Di Caprio or Orlando Bloom in it.

    Actually, it sounds like another Adam Sandler movie. With Rob Schnider playing Sean O'Brien.

    Don't you undermine my film. You're no more than a crafty Jim Mallinder!

    More to it, this whole "Little Irelander" mentality (similar to the "little Englander" ideal which Fran Cotton wants with renationalisation) has diluted the point of rivalries.

    Or to put it much better:
    Spot on.

    Ahhh yes. Football rivalries, the perfect example for all sports

    [​IMG]

    Rugby is not football. Rugby fans are nothing like football fans, rugby rivalries are nothing like football rivalries.

    The majority of Munster fans supported Leinster for any number of reasons. They usually support them when they wear green so its an easy transition (Munster then Ireland, then Irish rugby), they wanted Connacht to get into the HEC, they had absolutely no affinity with the Saints etc.

    The desire to see their rival, or rivals fans fail is not a motivation that comes into any but the very few. Its not a rugby thing. Especially not an Irish rugby thing.

    In fairness our choices weren't great :D

    Leinster - Our Rivals
    Saints - Bit of history from last season
    So then usually in that scenario we'd say well we'll shout for the ref - And then they appoint Poite :( They didn't even give us a chance :p

    ********. Sport is about rivalries. Leinster and Munster don't play to represent Ireland. Saints and Tigers don't play to represent England. If you believe otherwise you're an idiot who buys into the Sky Sports tabloid bullshit.

    Hint: The Heineken Cup is the pinnacle of CLUB rugby. A fan going as a Neutral is not forced to have affinity because of convenience.

    I for one hope Leicester have their arse handed to them on Saturday. According to your logic, that's wrong because they're also from the East Midlands.

    Jees, calm down there Chris, getting a bit excited again. I dont think anyone is dissagreeing with you on the fact that rivalries exist in rugby. Of course they do. They just arent as intense in rugby as they are in football. They dont lead to fans hating fans, or fans wanting other teams to fail.

    If Leinster cant win a particular trophy I'd hope Connacht, Ulster or Munster win it. The great majority of Irish rugby fans would think along similar lines. Dont see why you have to have such an issue with it.

    Try going to an East Midlands derby. Or for that matter, listen to some smug ******** like Rob Andrew sing the test rugby line.

    The intensity & passion of modern club rugby will never EVER be replicated with the nationalistic attitude of "if we don't win I hope our biggest rivals do". If you're capable of thinking that, I sorry to say you're incapable of getting it.

    Respecting and Rooting for a team are 2 very different things.

    In the same way I'm incapable of "getting" the likes of football rivalries.

    I think I'm okay with that.

    So anyone who supports their own Club, and on that note wants their clubs biggest rivals to get beat, first and formost is now a football rival? Whereas supporting your biggest rival is loyalty?

    Or for that matter, "anyone but the English" is completely different? We'll see how many Dubliners support England in the World Cup judging by that mantra.


    So no, you don't get it.
