I’ve always been of the view that we all give over our hard earned to watch the game we love; both home and away supporters. For the vast vast majority, we have no animosity towards anyone and the same goes vice versa. Of course there are overly blinkered ones at all clubs but these are few and far between. I would never dream of giving our guest supporters a hard time and would like to think that would be reciprocated if the boot was on the other foot.

My view on Saracens as a club with Wray at the helm is nothing but disdain for what they have done to the Premiership and, by extension, European competition. I agree with the Chief’s CEO completely. They should be thrown out of the Premiership and European competition and their trophies taken away.

Camel made a great point earlier about players being just as culpable (receiving known stolen goods is just as bad as stealing them), but shouldn’t be punished. The problem is that not all of them appear to have benefitted so it would seem harsh to tar them both the same brush but I have my suspicions.

I haven’t decided what I will do when they come out on Saturday (even if they do if other reports are true). I will just be sad that one man can ruin the sport by being allowed to run roughshod over agreed rules and thinking he can get away with it because he has more money than everyone else (apart from Mr L at Bristol); he is a disgrace to our sport and no amount of argument will change my view.

It's often a struggle to interpret the tone of a post on a forum. It might be worth clarifying that you're not suggesting that this education should be imposed on Sarries fans who come to Kingsholm on Sat.

I'll be mostly focusing on what Gloucester are doing on Sat.

I'll be mostly shouting my 'education' at them on the TV. One of the many things that boil my pish is these supporters that will not see things like 'Glos choose to play sarries at international weekends' is complete tosh and they need to wake up....

The Game is on TV so a deafening silence as they take to the pitch will "heard" more than any booing. As for theiir supporters? If any sit near me, I'll enjoy the banter more. :D

Agreed. Booing will appear pantomime. Silence would make a beautifully clear point...especially if followed with the most deafening chorus of “glawwssster...”

I wasn’t decided how I would react but I now reckon that silence would be highly appropriate. However, add to that, everyone in the stadium turn their backs to the pitch. On TV that would speak a thousand words

I normally applaud the opposition albeit briefly when they come on to the pitch. I shall vigorously not applaud them at all... that'll make them think twice next time ;)
