Trouble is, if 70% of the Kingsholm crowd stay silent they will think they are playing at home :D

:lol: Which one? From the sounds of it the senior players have about 200 homes between them...

There are plenty of Sarries supporters that have been in open denial for a long time, defending the Club. Distinguishing between these and those that disagreed with the practice isn't easy.

If you spot one at Kingsholm try talking to them ...

I have chosen not to comment thus far on any of the threads about Sarries misdemeanours but SR’s comment struck a chord.
I have known one of the senior guys in the Saracens Supporters Club for 25 plus years and he has been nothing but humble about the whole thing. His club has been tarnished forever by Mr Wray and his bean counters. I hope everyone at the game takes a few seconds to stop and think about how they would feel if this had happened at our club. He was bringing 70 odd people on Saturday but many have decided to stay away, many because they are nervous about how they will be received.
We are all entitled to our opinions about what has gone on but for goodness sake remember these people are genuine supporters who love the game just as much as we do. Show them some humility and respect on Saturday and save your vitriol for those responsible.

Well said .... I’m having a meal in the 1873 with four Saracens Supporters who were very close to cancelling ... still not sure about two of them still but have said to them, come to the game have a beer or three and just enjoy the atmosphere as they have done in previous seasons ...

I'm very much with Smudger; first post on topic and let's just get on with the game and leave the authorities to deal with Sarries. This is a match we should be winning (which equally applied to last week) and we don't need any distractions. Any vocal input should be directed at supporting our team and the best response to the situation is getting out on the paddock and collecting 5 points!

To a point, yes... but some of them have an attitude of it's all someone elses fault and posting stuff like 'Glos choose to play sarries when all our players are at international'..... Those 'fans' need educating.....
