Rugby Fan Picks Fight With Ian Madigan, Ends Up Looking Like An Eejit

The biggest issue with blind rage is that it's blind. And a rugby fan learned the hard way of the problem with being less-than-rigorous in post-match rants. Bristol pasted the Cornish Pirates last night on a scoreline of 56-19, running in eight tries. The first-half performance was of such quality that broadcaster Johnnie Hammond proclaimed that it was the best half of rugby he has seen from Bristol this season.

A fan, named Chris Deverell, who identified himself as a neutral observer, replied in anger, slating the performance of the (predominantly female) officials.

Ian Madigan spotted this, and weighed in to defend the performance of the officials.
