Munstershire the brand, may include the bandwagoneers en masse, but that only proves that Munster are doing it better than most
less than 15 years ago, Cork and Limerick players wouldn't even speak to each other in the dressing room, Munstershire is a brand, a marketing ploy for gullible saps like yourself

Had this conversation with a few Munster fans over the last year or so and most have said they'd support Munster over Ireland. This really pisses me off. I do support Munster but for me it'll always be Ireland first.
Fuck off to the "Ireland" forum then.

You're probably one of those cunts that support "De Ree-Pubble-Ick Of Oirland" in soccer, and "Arland" in rogby.

Cork first, fuck everything else.

Stubborn to the point of foolishness...that's you described perfectly...How does that bear any relevance to the position Munster find themselves in today....and anyway, in club rugby in Munster there has always had a bond between the clubs...senior, junior, right down to schoolboy ...my dad and his brothers will often tell me about that and i remember it anyway from when i was a small kid watching them play....Cork and limerick and other counties clubs beating the crap out of each other but letting it go afterwards...

Rugby is fairly unique in international sport as one where petty squabbles and altercations can be forgotten about the next minute...

Be honest...you cannot bring yourself to admit that Munster is a hugely successful sporting phenomenon, and, certainly in the Irish sporting history, the most successful high profile team on an international stage, we have ever had...

Would that be the same Toulouse that also fields a professional soccer team, which competes regularly in real Pan-European competitions, unlike the "Heineken Arland, Great Britain & Bits Of France Cup"?

Where have all the AIL fans gone?

Eh? Where is this famous bond between the clubs and their fans?



I want you to answer this

Quote of the year. Think I've found myself a new sig.

On the Munstershire/Arland debate, imagine if it was EOS who was coaching Munster & Kidney in charge of Arland what would the support levels be? Its easy to say Munster 1st when they are seen as the great over-achievers who the dockers & binmen can relate to, when the contrast is a team containing D4 socialites, considered among the most talented of players on their day who its believed have under-achieved on a monumental scale.

I know which wagon I'd be jumping on.

i.e. they only follow winning teams when the true test of any sports fan is the person who follows the team win or lose

Those same Munster fans are probably newly found Chelsea fans also

who needs fans like that

It still exists ...but as in any sport here...including the GAA, The bigger competitions involving County/province will obviously draw in those fans, those with a moderate interest and the bandwagoneers ....same for any sport really...

What kind of GAA fan would you class yourself as, seeing as you're one of those lads who books extended hols abroad right in the middle of the championship season ? Are you a barstooler ? or a Moderate ?
