Okay, maybe that part of Glasgow isn't exactly rugby country and yes there are some valid talking points, but the cheap sniping point scoring is contemptible.
The Pro14 admin brought the final to a city that doesn't usually host rugby matches of that stature, introducing the game and the league to thousands of people that would ordinarily have limited exposure to it. They are to be commended. The fact that many of those people are more used to a football environment may leave the snobs noses out of joint - but fudge those arrogant twats!
I have no issues with a hostile crowd at all and in fact welcome it. Yes I would agree that booing isn't the best way to express that hostility. There are valid criticisms if some of the alleged behaviour is true and its fine to discuss that, but I always find that when trying to change people's minds or their behaviour, you're better off not starting the conversation by calling them a kunt!
And the virtue signaling about uncouth behaviour is as bad as the snide comments etc ...
Tbf I think the discussion on here about the atmosphere at the match has been pretty civilized. Most other social media threads have been a car crash with Leinster fans claiming the environment was caustic from pre match through to the medal ceremony and Glasgow supporters in complete denial. Of course you don’t start a constructive conversation by calling someone a kunt but I don’t see evidence of that , or the snide remarks you refer to .
It’s a chat forum , people are going to give opinions
