    That's helpful. Gather a load of quotes, spin them out of context then spit a load of hyperbole in my face. Bravo.

    That thing you said about the French - 2 examples represents the entire nation. Fine, you I challenged you to find a racing fan (or whatever it was I asked exactly, can't be bothered to go back) and you delivered that. Can't argue that. However I'd ask: Are you honestly, genuinely telling me that is representative of every single fan? Or even the Majority? I still find that hard to believe.

    PS:

    But again, enjoy your little victory Charles. Deliberately behaving in an antagonistic manor towards a member rather then a somewhat heated discussion on a subject earns you this magnificent victory. Celebrations all round.

    You implied people had made it personal when YOU were the one that made it personal. The quotes were used correctly and the point was pretty clear. Can you really not see that?

    He didnt say they represented the entire nation. You asked for an example he found them in about 2 minutes. His point was made.

    Its a common enough occurance in the thread and on the forum, as is the fact that you can never accept it.

    Seriously Chris. Random posters have been telling you to calm down and you are accusing Charles of being antagonistic?

    I understand this is your forum and I fully expect all posts in this thread to mysteriously dissapear overnight, but its okay to be wrong every now and then.

    Right... enough of this hate and let's get back to the film.

    I've made a few calls and Gerard Butler has agreed to play Nathan Hines

    Just a brief point on the rivalry thing, I'm not sure (but haven't read the whole the thread) that the real issue is being addressed. TRF_Bullitt says there's nothing wrong in cheering on a non-Irish team if you're own province isn't playing. And he's right. I know a Munster fan who was cheering for Leicester in the HC QF. She was cheering for them because her hubby is a Leicester man and she feels more of a connection to them as a result than she does Leinster. And that's fine.

    The real issue here isn't that Munster fans were cheering for Northampton out of genuine support, but that they were cheering for Northampton out of spite towards Leinster. They really didn't care who it was as long as Leinster didn't win. And that's just pathetic. Rugby is very much built on the idea of respect and sportsmanship, and that kind of behaviour flies in the face of what is so special about the game. If you want to cheer for a team in a match do it because you want to see that team win, not because you want to see the other team lose. You'll find that if it's the latter it also will impact on your interaction with your rivals fans too. And what's the point in that? The thing that stands out most about the game is how, in the end, we're all rugby mates regardless of our club or country. We can all have a pint and a laugh after the game and enjoy each others company. The people Franno was giving out about were the kind Leinster fans could not have had a pint and a laugh with that weekend. Thankfully the only Munster fans I met were true ambassadors for the game. Drunk, but as gracious as the drink allowed!!! ;-)
