No one is a true neutral when the ABs play.

The Swedes may have been neutral, but they still wanted the Nazis to lose.

You mean the team that beat the All Blacks to the Rugby Championship the same year?

Not quite yet. Boks came 3rd in 2015 then lost to Pumas and Italy the next season :lol:

Edit: and Wales and NZ and Australia and NZ and England.
The recent failures of the All Blacks hurts you hard. So hard.
I pity you.
Have you thought of going to see a professional for help?

It’s been a good ride New Zealand. Thanks for the memories.

Basketball rugby and brittle defence not up to it anymore. The mantle of Eazy Rugby has definitely passed south. The skillz still excellent.

I called this months ago.

The All Blacks are done. Shot. Kaput.

They got far too excited about beating a terrible Wobblies team. Truth be told, the Bledisloe is now a third tier competition.

I didn’t say that New Zealand rugby can’t turn it around within the next 5 odd years.

A few teams out there have their number now.

Their not done. They just are not the team out in front on their own like they were 2004-2015, they are perhaps at early 2000's level before a truly special generation of players came through, probably the team producing the most best players, certainly in terms of depth, but certainly not always so they are superior to their competitions best XVs each match. ALso the depth of competition has improved.

They have lost to a few teams. But when bothered they still smashed Australia by a record and can do against the argies. But when it matters not many teams are winning consistently against them in key games.

I don’t think you understand how little it hurts. There will be a majority of Kiwis very happy for the Argentines. While also wanting to get Foster and do to shape up or ship out. These threads are just putting the ‘neutrals’ back in their box.

You’re right, we don’t play. Nor take it that personally. That’s why we aren’t out in force combing the streets looking for Argentine manufactured vehicles to firebomb.

Have more disingenuous words ever been typed here. There's always very defensive posts when New Zealand loses. There was a reason why kiwis were called precious so often and for so many years on this board where All Black losses are concerned. Not just here, all over the place the same defensive "how dare you talk about your team/or celebrate another team" comments pop-up. The idea your country men are all about being happy for Argentina is not exactly true. The board always comes together when underdogs win, somehow you and others take issue with that when ever it is the All Blacks who are 99% never the underdogs.

I'd say most Kiwis are aiming their vitriol at their own coach rather than any other supporters.

I don't know anyone who disagrees with the fact the Argies were full value for the win.

I think that's a bit of an over-reaction on your part, tbh. It's not like Foster has some great credit rating as a coach. He was a mediocre Super Rugby coach then an assistant in a successful period and as a head coach the AB's have only had one genuinely good performance in 5 tests. People aren't turning on him from one loss, they were sceptical of his abilities and disagreed with the appointment process.

Not to the same exent - it's a blind spot for Kiwis - look, we get it, you're team has done extremely well for decades.

You seem to be on a bit of a trolling expedition this arvo.

As I noted earlier, we can handle the odd loss.

It was the manner of the loss that was disconcerting. Outmuscled and loads of silly mistakes.

People are rightly frustrated and the coach is copping it because his side appear to be less than the sum of their parts.

Disingenuous, please. It’s the gloating neutrals that don’t help. It’s fun to point out to a gloating Saffer that they finished 3rd then proceeded to lose to Argentina, Italy and 5 other teams the next season. No one has an issue with anyone celebrating this win. Many Kiwis are, not out of spite for their coach, but with genuine good will for the Argentines. I am yet to talk to any NZer in NZ who has anything but praise for the way the Pumas played.

He's clearly not trolling, but try to see that it's not the first time it's been brought up how New Zealanders take losses. Every team rips their coaches in bad periods but their is a sourness and 'how dare you' tone to a lot of the interaction. An entitlement shines through. And yeah, sure there are some fans who are out to troll. That's against every team though. It seems mostly seem very self-unaware about how you belittle every other teams win and fans getting behind underdog wins when it's against yours. It's not even just PR where we will see this either.

Are we NZers not allowed to call out a coach who clearly isn't good enough now?

A coach we've all been saying for months isn't good enough because we've actually been following his coaching for years?

No one is belittling this win. No one I know did likewise to the smashing England gave us last year, nor the Irish wins.

We even collectively handled that abortion of a final Lions game remarkably better than the 4 nations would have were the boot on the other foot.

I'd say that's a generalisation, but I do concede there's some terrible sports out there.

One thing I would say in respect of the reactions is that while it's natural for neutrals to support the underdog, and NZ is almost never the underdog, there's also a strong undercurrent of genuine antipathy towards NZ from a lot of 'neutrals'. McCaw is cheat, POB is a cheat etc. Look at the difference in the reaction to the 07 1/4 reffing performance and Joubert in 2011 for instance.

So while I'll concede there's some bad sports from NZ out there who over-react to losses, there's also a lot of Kiwis who put up with copping juvenile shit from idiots after every win which might contribute to their attitude towards opposition fans.

What a crock of shit. I haven't seen anything but congratulations posted about the Pumas. No whingeing about the ref either.

People ARE pissed off with the ABs effort, but that takes nothing away from the Pumas well deserved victory.

So while I'll concede there's some bad sports from NZ out there who over-react to losses, there's also a lot of Kiwis who put up with copping juvenile shit from idiots after every win which might contribute to their attitude towards opposition fans.
Both Eldan and I are England Supporters - are you honestly saying you've not had a good gloat, in a non-judgmental way, when England lost? :proud:
Other than AB v England tests, probably not. But I was actually talking about the constant shit talking even when NZ are winning. I mean, I recall Wallaby fans moaning about that try ruled out for interference on Savea as being a big deal when they lost that match by 27 points or some shit.

you belittle every other teams win and fans getting behind underdog wins when it's against yours. It's not even just PR where we will see this either.
What a crock of shit. I haven't seen anything but congratulations posted about the Pumas. No whingeing about the ref either.

People ARE pissed off with the ABs effort, but that takes nothing away from the Pumas well deserved victory.
Plenty of shit aimed at the ref in the match thread.

Kiwi losses are generally reflected on the bored in various stages.

We are in the Reluctant Acceptance stage which is a mix of "bound to happen" and "most of us are just happy for the Pumas, bro" comments.

Soon the Gloating on Past Victories stage will take over closely followed by the Point the Finger stage which is typically directed at one or two escaped goats (the coach, a player who made a few mistakes or the ref...sometimes all three).

I don't know anyone who disagrees with the fact the Argies were full value for the win.
You'd have to be the Donald Trump of rugby supporters to claim the Argies were not full value for the win.

You guys get stuck into your coach and players pre, during and post match and get the whinge on real quick whilst firing up the PowerPoint.

There was shit aimed at Gardner cause he made some shitty calls during the match, that's a long way from blaming the result on the ref.

I haven’t seen a negative comment about the reffing post match.
