The Times reporting this morning that the Scarlets are launching an investigation after allegations of fans making monkey noises at La Rochelle players during the game on Friday.

Are these so-called fans that high up the evolutionary tree that they can mimic the communications of animals that are more intelligent than they are?

It amounts to one tweet and two replies. All of a sudden it’s making the headlines.

Scarlets said they’d investigate. I’m sure if they find the muppets responsible they’ll get a suitable ban.

Anything more need to be said?

Did it come about due to someone picking up the statement from this site. If so it justs highlights how anything posted on here has huge potential. Racism has to be stamped out and an official complaint should be made to the club. Highlighting on scarlet fever has unfortunately tarnished all that was good from Friday. Am disappointed to hear of these unfortunate events and the following press involvement.

Shows how easy it is to build a story on very little facts or evidence of a real issue as opposed to a small handful of pee'd up plonkers! It's how Trump builds his Fake news !

There is always going to be an unwanted element in a sellout game who dont know how to behave.

For future game i think signage is needed around the ground on the conscequences and fines involved for such unnacceptable behaviour, also for invading the pitch.

It was posted on here speedy which I think was the wrong approach. The club should have been contacted directly and people have a responsibility to be savvy on what they post. This is not a criticism of the the post just that it should have been handled far more professionally.

They could not wait to run a negative story out of thin air on us. Really poor using the racist stick to beat us too.

Disgusting. If anyone should be investigated its the Jimmy Saville club. The good old Beeb. I stopped watching after they wouldnt give Alan Partridge a second series.

FWIW, tracking it back the first time I saw any mention of this was from ScarletBear in the Clayton Blommetjies thread, on p5 I think.

Now, SB is based in the USA, so I assume his comment was second hand. I don't know if it's worth your sending him a PM to see what the original source was? It may turn out to be a load of crap after all. 

(On the other hand, there were more reliable apparent first hand accounts of poor behaviour by some 'supporters', involving things like swearing near youngsters.)
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.
