Most international Rugby fans aren't really "supporters".

    I've just been watching Irelands laughable performance against the USA there this morning on the Tv.

    One thing struck me. The Irish Rugby team were putting in a very embarrasing performance against a USA side consisting of 11 amateurs and only 4 professionals and everytime the cameras zoomed in on the crowd all the Irish fans were jumping around like clowns.!!!

    Unbelievable, have they no passion for their side. Do they actually care if Ireland win or lose?? They seem more interested in dressing up in silly green wigs and waving at the camera than actually supporting their side.

    Yes obviously they were enjoying the atmosphere. But it you are a real supporter i.e actually care whether your team win or lose then surely you should be foucssed on watching the action out on the pitch. I was at home watching the match on Tv and even though it was early in the morning i was roaring abuse at what was unfolding before my eyes (stuff the neighbours!!!) .
    Not like these bandwagon fans who are only watching the match as an excuse to have a few Pints. And don't get me started on the Female Rugby "fans"!!!!

    If you were a real fan you'd follow your team everywhere.

    You didn't, so by your own logic you're not.

    When I watched England I was sitting there hurling abuse. Some of the fans looked like they were not paying attention and others looked liked me. <laugh>
