Kilkenny Fans Have Been Getting A Lot Of Stick Over Their Behaviour Yesterday

Kilkenny Fans Have Been Getting A Lot Of Stick Over Their Behaviour Yesterday
By Gary Reilly

What's the point of it all? We've already had a bit of an existential crisis today after watching the All Ireland hurling final and the behaviour of a large proportion of the Kilkenny fans would seem to feed into that rather nicely.

Galway had the numbers yesterday, there's no doubt about that. However, even accounting for that, the amount of fans still in Croke Park as Kilkenny celebrated their 11th All Ireland hurling title since the turn of the millennium was noticeably paltry.

Perhaps Kilkenny fans are just more reserved with their passion but quite a few people are suggesting that the Cat's are taking things for granted to the detriment of the game as a spectacle.

Kilkenny fans are more used to success than anyone else in the country, there's no doubt about that. Similarly, it's simply human nature that a long awaited win will be celebrated more vigorously than a win that is almost expected at this stage.

It's fair to assume that Galway fans would have stayed back in greater numbers had they claimed the title but they didn't. Kilkenny did and we can only imagine their fans are suitably happy with that today, even if it's wasn't in Croker where they showed it off.
