    The press and general public do not see them as a Coventry team. Up north, people don't even realise they play in Coventry.

    Probably because the gents of the game wouldn't employ such tactics. Just the odd thug that can't resist the opportunity. Every contact sport attracts them. Even some none contact ones do...triathlon/open water swims, cycling increasingly. Give it a few yrs & snooker players will be whacking each other with cues on tv, & darts players will end up having to wear some sort of safety helmet to protect themselves!

    You have to contrast this with things like smashing the bar up at MK Dons a while back...that one springs readily to mind...but that's just Cov...we're on about the whole game. It seems to still attract people with a pretty shit attitude to others

    Like me you weren't there so don't know the tone or how much he knew of her. She might've already been using language & he perhaps said 'I wish you'd fuck-off with that whistle' & a cheeky grin. You're just assuming it was threatening

    I know this is League, but:



    It's when the women join in.

    Friday night crowd fracas at Bristol is latest example of rugby's falling standards
    Senior police chief slams Welsh rugby fans after Scotland game
    Wales v England: 'Idiotic' fans ruin big match atmosphere in Cardiff city centre
    A fight breaks out amongst Northampton and Saracens fans

    Let's not pretend none of it goes on in Rugby. There will be bellends in any sport, it's just that lots more go to watch football every week.

    That's without starting on "Rugger lads" nights out or antics with kangaroo courts, drinking pints of piss, soggy biscuit. Used to be a weekly event a group of rugby blokes would kick off back in the day.

    It's a minority, not the majority. The behaviour of the Wasps' players during their boat party was just as bad, if not worse.

    I agree...it is a minority...& it does happen in other sports. I do think it is much more prevalent in football though

    No further action required isn't the same as nothing happened is it...

    Having seen a couple of Rugby parties there was not much that was usual about it. Granted, that was just drinking piss, puking into the glass and then drinking that.

    Just like the good old days some of mates at my local Hockey Club used to tell me about...a couple of female slippers gang banged & pissed & puked on too.

    Again it happens in all sports.

    And that brushing under the carpet happens weekly with the FA & RFU & BOC & LTA...etc

    I meant the ones I had seen.

    One was about 2014 and the others back in the day.

    I always piss on my slippers if it's dark ;)

    I agree, it does happen in all sports. Thing is, Rooney has a pint when he isn't playing and it's headline news.

    Actually the Telegraph reported it first. Still as you are being told what to say on here by them I guess you'll support their version of events.

    Especially as, no doubt, the "private investigator" was commissioned by the same person who tells you how to represent them on here.

    Do you need night vision goggles to see? You are so far up Eastwoods arse how else do you see?

    Your performance on this thread is desperate.

    I have no facts other than the Sun report which has never challenged the Wasps investigation.
    I would take an educated guess that it was an adult evening and a few staff making some money stretching their story.
    Couldn't blindly follow a loose story like that but I can see why the Sisu believers might be vulnerable.

    Again, you still hold the record for being the biggest "SISU Believer" on here. Nice try at throwing that line in then.

    Have a look at links from other news outlets too then.

    It was a perfect example of not being completely gentlemanly like you like to make out.

    Maybe you can ask your leaky source if he will tell you exactly what happened?

    You have already said "adult evening" ;)

    What about the other examples I posted, the rugby fans fighting ones?

    Not saying it never happens, but
    Can only go on my own experiences of the past few years of following CCFC and Wasps.
    I have never seen fans falling out at a Rugby match.

    It's exactly that, the minority spoiling something for the majority. It just so happens the the minority of football fans in numbers equal the entire amount of Rugby fans (in total) across the country so trouble is fewer and further between!

    So they had their big day out at Twickers, 82,000 watched the game v Exeter. Having been in Coventry since they won their play off game last week, the City of Coventry did not have the feel of a major club about to win / compete forthe biggest domestic prize. Knew very few people who went to the game, no flags o/ scarves on cars, etc..

    If they had won would there have been an open-top bus parade around Coventry - I doubt it. Very bizarre the Ricoh is attracting surprisingly big crowds but I think their support come from far and wide plus still believe these new fans are more fans of rugby / sport in general rather than specifically die hard WASPS fans. But the capacity of the Ricoh unlike Welford Road ensures that there is always room to accommodate uncommitted fans.
