Post Re: Drinking culture at Principality Stadium
My daughter took her two 8 year old boys up to Twickenham for the Welsh game. It was far less stressful, there was far less language and it was a much nicer all round experience. Not a scientific cross-section, but she felt it was very noticeable.

Being less likely to be sat next to somebody from Blaendulais might be one reason, who knows. :)

:) Quite possibly

Shes a policewoman so seen it all before, in Cardiiff the language was bad. In HQ there was virtually none, people seemed to respect the fact they had women and kids around them.... perhaps that's old-fashioned in today's society.

It is a far nicer 'family' experience at twickenham.

I, however, find the place is a like a morgue. I'm afraid I want to jump up and down and scream and swear, it's got nothing to do with booze, I'm just an asshole when I'm watching sport that I'm invested in

There is that. I think the lack of restraint in emotions watching rugby is a release. My dad didn't swear much when I was younger but reserved the right to swear when watching a game (at home). It made sense!

Ha, you say that... :D

As mentioned, he isn't a particularly swearing sort of person but gets emotional watching rugby. I think he might have sworn after conceding a try. And after conceding a few more and swearing worse every time he made the rule that rugby was exempt from the normal swearing protocols. In the 90s, it wasn't uncommon to concede!

I found it more quelled at Twickers also the lower Tier at Twickers offers better viewing than Cardiff .
Cardiff has become a drunken slosh, to many assholes being the big I am, I can drink more than you attitude.

There was a guy in front of us in Cardiff talking about how he played rugby but moaned like hell about how cold it was, thought he was a tough guy who could play rugby...bit of frost and then the rattle out of the pram. There are some dicks supporting the game for sure.

Incident involving drunken louts seeking to get access to press box at the Wales v France game. Could see it coming and will get worse if no action taken.
