Newlands and the ever present common enemy
April 2, 2013 in Uncategorized
I have been keeping one eye on the news, mostly regarding the fans at the Stormers Crusaders match.
A few years ago ( round about 2005), my cousin and me went to watch the rugby at Newlands. Since his blood is WP blue and mine Natal black, and because the Sharks already played at the stadium, we decided to watch the Stormers v Hurricanes. Off course I wanted a South African Team to win, but the behaviour of the crowd in particular to the All Black fans was disgusting.
A year or so later, the Sharks made their way to Newlands and off course I was in attendance. To be honest, I have never seen such a bunch sore losers, like they say in Afrikaans, “Baiebek” when they are leading but sour when they lose.
Through the years I have had my fair share of vocal abuse from the Newlands faithful, and even though I can appreciate the rivalry, it is no reason to act like a complete and utter moron. I decided that I will only attend Sharks games after the Crusaders Semi Final three years ago, to which the Stormers lost. Take it from me, I know people that support the All Blacks and Crusaders. I know them, but it is not up to me to judge and tell them who to support, why ain’t I supporting the Stormers some would ask? Even my sister is a All Black, and have been for over 30 years. There is absolutely nothing I will say about it, but one thing is clear though, she or the handful of All Blacks I know are not morons.
So coming to my point, the Sharks will be making the trip to Newlands next weekend, and I will most def be in attendance. So anyone also going?
