Who was booing?

Returning to the thread title. There was indeed a fair amount of booing at half time, certainly in the middle of the Shed anyway. Driven by frustration with the ref, I'd say, particularly his refusal to look at high tackle leading to our try. OK we got the try, but........

Inconsistency yet again from referees - so frustrating.

So what about all the Sale fans in the end of JS Stand who were booing for Glos last try and even more so when Burns took the conversion...

Think they need to look closer to home before blaming others....

They could have been booing their full back's kick that gifted possesion to Marshall - and resulted in a try almost immediately.
If not they probably should have been. :)

Had come on to say what a good day we'd had yesterday and will come back to that shortly.
Firstly the message on our boards seems v strange as it's not someone you see on there often, and as someone who was at the game I didn't hear any booing, pantomime or not at half time.
Just to check standing at that end of the shed, and watching the full game back to double check, after your last try there was no booing on the audio, in fact the only thing heard is Mr Tempest asking Burns to hurry his kick up. So can you elaborate how no one near by, or any of the TV microphones have picked up this apparent carcophany of boos.....

Anyhow away from that. Just want to say thanks for an absolutely belting afternoon on the shed. The guys we were stood with were as knowledgeable and welcoming set of fans our group has encountered. The game overall had an end of season feel to it and was a reasonable specatcle to watch I thought. Anyway, good next week and we'll be back next season bringing some non Japanese chocolate with us!

There was booing but at the ref for not reviewing the late tackles in the build up to a try. It had been replayed on the big screen.

Still a pleasure on the whole to attend rugby at Gloucester where rival supporters mix amicably. Unfortunately there is a consistent small minority who let Gloucester down. I have been standing at the Stowford Press end for years and like it or booing does exist. Idiots were actually booing Sale as they took to the field at the start of the game. They are the exception to the rule but it grates. No good saying one finds that everywhere as that is a cop out. One of the idiots took delight in chanting that Sale were 'a load of muppets. He did however stop when I took issue with him. These loathsome individuals let the side down. Let us not pretend that such incidents do not exist and take measures to stamp it out. It could be the slippery slope.

We are starting to attract the sort of idiots you see at England matches (albeit less well-heeled). There was a bunch of them on the 11.15 train on the way over from Swindon. They were embarrassing themselves by their lack of rugby knowledge -the only player they knew was Laidlaw and they were boasting that they were going to be singing "We are in the Shed and it's got a roof on it" :oops: . They were drinking cans of Heineken (which was clearly a potent variant of the usual nats') and effing and blinding in front of a mixed carriage. In the end, I had to have a word and, to be fair, they apologised. But it's the way we are headed I'm afraid and these ridiculous stag parties don't help.

I hope he didn't actually say "muppet" that would be outrageous :shock: ;)

the only booing I heard from the JS stand was when Johnny may got tacked illegally, he's quiet tall and to go head height tackle must have been deliberate dirty play!!! sale player deserved the booing and even citing!!
