For them to watch the series and comment on it then surely that just means they are jealous of all the publicity our club has had and how professionally run it is compared to their crappy club

On one forum for sports in general, the views coming form people outside of the region have been pretty positive.  People's opinion of us being run by armatures with no clue seem to be waning and people are starting to accept that we are running a professional business that is doing its damnedest to survive.

Granted, but the agenda is there for all to see by some unfortunately, and that is to nit-pick on the tiniest of negativity, and then create countless pages of trolling. North gate being the main drivel, about who is right, who is wrong, blah blah blah. Ultimately, no one really knows the exact happenings, no matter what they think, and I just can't understand why it can't be left alone now..................he's gone FFS! LOL
 
Let them get on with it, why I don't post anymore on these 'other forums'. Jealous is probably the correct word to be honest, and even though they'd cut their right arms off before admitting it, it is pretty obvious looking in from the outside. Thumbs Up
 
I thought the series was informative, and more should be shown on the box from all of the regions to be honest. That way, we can all get a good honest insight to how all of the regions are run as professional businesses. Maybe then, more people will understand the day to day runnings of professional rugby, instead of making up their own minds on a foundation of sand. Thumbs Up
 
Let me put it this way, if the Blues, O's and Drags did something similar, I would most certainly watch it and support it, and not take the piss. We're all supposed to be working together for the better of Welsh rugby, not taking the piss or having a dig at the first opportunity. ClapClapClap

Correct! Clap There are plenty of people up here over the bridge that have been following the series after I had made them aware of it, and just wish that their clubs would do something similar! ClapClapClap

One of my mates is an English football fan but was bored and watched the documentary! He wants to come down and see a Scarlets game now! He was impressed with our stadium too

They've always looked down on West Wales in the East. They think Bridgend is West Wales in Cardiff. This is not a specific thing to rugby but to life in general. I'm sure some of the Cardiff based Scarlets on here would echo my view on this. I thought Mark Davies came over well on the programme. He looks a very stable measured individual.

It is a great shame to be honest.

I can vouch for this. Mate of mine said he was "off to the beach in West Wales" last summer. When I asked him where, he said "Pothcawl".

Happens in most countries though.

I've always looked down on East Wales.
 
I think a lot of them, deep down, are quite envious of West Wales in many ways. They see everyone from west of the Loughor as part of a big clique that they are not welcome in. I quite like that.

yep, i do a lot of work in Cardiff and the people i bump into really do believe that 
1, we're all related in west wales
2, we're 10 yrs behind the rest of wales
3, we all speak welsh but dont bother speaking it, unless one of them is around and we want to talk about them!.
Wales only true rugby region.

That's Ponty!
The stadium may change, but the dream will remain the same!
