What's the feeling on the beer debate?

https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/letters/time-to-ban-the-booze-at-aviva-1.4839373

I know from going to games that it is just an excuse for a sess, but if you take away the badwagon the rugby community in Ireland is not that big, so what do they do?

Not sure if you're serious or not. Beer or no beer the place will be jammed as it has been for decades Inc many many many barren years

But if you read those comments there seems to be a thing whereby the daytrippers are a hindrance when they are a lot of the people filling the place.
Like if you go to the games there is a high percentage who barely watch 20 minutes at times. But, then that is an issue of the corporate seats and they could be filled by people who actually cared easily.

them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

Plenty of corporate seats alright. All big stadia will have 'day rippers' and a fair percentage of them. Not sure where they would all be getting their tickets from. We've built up contacts over many years and at least half of our travelling group of 10 give or take are all members of 2 local teams.

On the corporate side of things, and this is soccer not rugby... Took thousands of corporate ticket holders 15 mins to return to their prime seats for the 2nd half of the World Cup final, incredible!

100% agree re the above yet gets a disproportional amount of coverage in the press.

Bundee Aki was left out of the Connacht team that played in Newcastle. They didn't need him was the message. Except that Connacht lost.

Cooney might be playing for Scotland by the end of the 6 Nations.

Thought he definitely should have had more game time for Ireland a few years ago, when he was excelling at Ulster, but it didn't happen for him.

Not close to getting a look in now.
