Rugby fans causing bother

Not sure what Cardiff have done to deserve it. :lol:
It's logical, release lots of drunken folk into a city centre where the local businesses would be grateful for the money as opposed to them wandering around Richmond where rich folk don't want them.

I think the point is that drunken, loutish behaviour is somewhat different to what’s went on in the link he posted.
Of course. But it just looks like a tenuous link between two fan incidents from different sports that has no relevance to the OP.

Been to it a few times and TBH it is becoming less about the rugby and more about the drink... Many don't even go into Twickers to watch the game and end up staying in the 'Hostility tents' outside the stadium.

I used to stay in the the Union Jack Club at Waterloo; however, this is also mobbed now and instead of it being a good day out, it's now become a bit of a ball ache. When you get north of 80k drinking folk attending an event, then you are going to get a few pissed up idiots amongst them. I think it should be rotated to other stadiums also - if only to spread the pain around.

He probably is being overly defensive mind.

I live over the road from Kingston Park. They only get around 5k attending but loads of people around me complain about the behaviour of fans heading back to the Metro station etc’.

I never see any and I do get the impression that some people are overly sensitive about everything, but I can see how living near a sports venue would be annoying for people.

As a Rugby fan though I love it :lol:

It's not tenuous at all. OP was trying to prove a point.
I think you're just being a bit overly defensive on behalf of the civil rugby fans tbh.

Top & bottom of it in most cases imo.
