So, Im watching the CC semi final on TV with my 7 year old son and also with some friends who are new to Rugby League.... My opening 'bigging up' of the sport is aimed at trying to entice them to come down to a game at the World Cup in a friendly and well natured environment with quality sport on show !

In the 30th minute, Ben Westwood coughs up the ball and the Hull players rightfully celebrate. The camera pans to the crowd and at this point I am lost for words and truely embarrassed...... well done mate, the sport of Rugby League, Hull FC and your friends and family are truely proud of you !

Needless to say that is 2 tickets less for the World Cup. I know it happens in most sports but the vile commets being uttered from this gentlemens mouth and the fact that he is clearly intoxicated to such a point that he can barely stand up is a disgrace ! There are children around. The BBC didnt help either by not changing the camera quick enough though they tried to pan out so that he was less prominent on the screen.

The question has to be.... is it time to call time on selling alcohol in grounds ? Given that most rugby grounds are licensed premises, the law is fairly black and white (pardon the pun) in that it is an offence to be drunk on licensed premises...... I for one like a drink at game but with recent crowd problems (made worse by booze) tarnishing our sport... Is this something that we could do without ?

For those who didnt see it, here he is...... (albeit upside down to avoid offence)...... Attached File  image.jpg   254KB   30 downloads

Fully agree - my thoughts exactly when I saw it live.  The game can do without this type of "fan".

Sad that after such a fantastic game of rugby league football you seem to point to one drunk

Why didn't the BBC cameras pan away straight away? It seemed to focus on that moron for an eternity. But I'm not going to let that one incident ruin a marvellous match and advert for this great cup competition and our great game.

I thought the fact that they didn't switch camera angle instantly was more disappointing. Someone certainly wasn't on the ball at that moment. But it wasn't the first time and it certainly won't be the last time that some div seizes a chance to make an ###### of himself. Most teams seem to carry at least a small box of tools with them. Although if that was a Widnes fan I dare say they'd make him the Mayor :P

No, I think a lot of people would feel they'd rather avoid his company, more so if they have kids
Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

You know what you could be right let's make sure all games are as passionless as the debacle yesterday.

I was at glam vs northants t20 game the other day, some disgraceful scenes with the away fans trying to provoke trouble, lots of obscenities and beer throwing, 30 blokes thrown out. Absolutely zero impact on how anyone will or should perceive the game itself or other fans. Not going to an event because of one muppet is daft and I suspect your friends were making excuses, if not shame on them for judging thousands because of one person

Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG

Me too, the rivalry between Wigan and Warrington would have generated a near if not a complete sell out as will hull FC reaching the final with their massive support, especially for cup finals.

His friends weren't making excuses, he hasn't got any. Its a completely made up story to try and provoke a reaction from Hull fans.

To be fair I agree with the title of this thread, it succinctly applies to the OP

He was clearly a scrote, but lt's get a sense of perspective : all of us have had a shout and a swear at rugby games. I was more disappointed that the BBC picked him out and then stayed with him. I was also bemused that they decided to fix a camera on a woman who looked like she'd spent last night brawling in Hull city centre.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

You should have seen the state of the loser.
