WP throw money at fans

2012-10-31 11:53

Cape Town - Western Province players caused some chaos during their Currie Cup victory parade when they threw money at the crowd assembled in Khayelitsha.

GALLERY: Western Province's victory parade

After an 11-year drought, WP beat the Sharks 25-18 in last Saturday's final in Durban, and paraded their new silverware through the city on Tuesday.

When the procession reached Khayelitsha, the team found their route lined by thousands of fans.

Players, including wing Bryan Habana, nearly caused a stampede when they threw money, including R50 notes, at the crowd.

As the money was thrown from the bus, fans jostled to get their hands on the cash. There were no reported injuries.

    "Rent-A-Crowd"

      Jimmy NZ - 2012-10-31 12:22

      @Rene, the funniest thing is that, that crowd will use the cash to go buy a Crusaders jersey :)

      stephen.axtell.7 - 2012-10-31 12:24

      I heard that knuckle draggers at Loftus will start using 'Rent a Crowd" to get people in to watch games when the Vlou Nulle play to make the stadium look full.

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 12:26

      @Jimmy, LoL - LoL and LoL - (funniest ever)

      jasper.benadie - 2012-10-31 12:33

      Jimmy, well said bru, lots of CapeMaori's there!!!

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-31 13:21

      You trolls never give up hey? Are you so mad that WP won another trophy? Or are you guys just that sad that your team an not win anything? Dark days ahead for you lot, Bulls won't win anything for the next 20 years. With players like Morne, Hougaard, Kirchner et who just get worse and worse every year. GL with that, and may the pink god's be with you.

      jasper.benadie - 2012-10-31 13:41

      Lean another trophy?????????????

      lourens.jordaan - 2012-10-31 14:09

      Rene het regtig nie gedink jy kan so n suurgat wees nie. Jy het nogal met tye cense gepraat maar nou raak jy regtig suur. Get over it. volgende jaar dan begin jou span dalk weer goedspeel met al die jong talent.En soos jy weet bly die bulle nie le nie, so hou maar op om n ou suurgat te wees.Aan ou (jasper,spies,dr wie jy ook al is) kom oor dit ou seun jy gaan nog n beroerte kry as jy bly om so kwaad te wees.

      goyougoodthing - 2012-10-31 14:16

      No class WP.

      Jimmy.All.Black - 2012-10-31 14:18

      @Lean, very happy you won a trophy, but by all means you're feelings of inadequacy are still there! Why is that? Are you really just a bitter person? Maybe so jealous how everybody just get's on with their life and really doesn't care about the CC anymore, after all look at what happen to the last team that won it? Or is it maybe because you now know the 11 year drought is about to begin again? Try smiling a wee bit and don't take everything so seriously :)

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 14:23

      @Lourens, 'cense vs sense' - anyhow, ek het ABSOLUUT geen rede om suur te wees nie, as ek vir myself gelieg het in 2012 en gedink het my span gaan die S15 / CC wen, ja miskien. Maar geen span in die WERELD verloor 'n magdom van kwaliteit spelers en word summier 'n 'force' nie. Nee my maat - nul, niks, suur nie. Ek dink eerder julle WP mense het gedink ons Bull supporters gaan te pletter wees, maar nou kom julle agter, dis nie so nie. Ons het hope en hope voorraad van trots wees op ons span. En dankie, ek dink ons besef ons span sal binnekort weer great wees.

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 14:29

      @Jimmy, spot on (he still has that 'hollow' feeling in his comments - if you know what I mean)

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-31 14:31

      Rene is trots op haar span wat 3 punte kry, en amper laaste van 6 spanne wees. Julle standaarde val maar vinnig jong. Goed vir jou, sal maar gewoont moet raak daarin.

      lourens.jordaan - 2012-10-31 14:34

      Rene nou wat noem jy dit dan as jy die heeltyd swak kommentaar lewer oor enige wp berig. Die aanmerkings toon net n kwesie van suurgatgeit. En hoekom sal ons nou wou he die bullesupporters moet nou in sak en as sit. Ons skuld hulle niks ons span het gewen.Word groot !!!!

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 14:44

      @Lourens, moet nou nie 'swak kommentaar' met die waarheid verwar nie. Dit sal nou nie deug nie.

      lablue.phoenix - 2012-10-31 14:57

      Rene is used to have money thrown at her.

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 15:03

      No @LaBlue, the only thing I am used to (but not surprised), are the very bad comments from you and your cronies!

      tokolos.tokkie - 2012-10-31 15:09

      Shame LaBlue.... Coming from you nobody takes notice. Change your silly mask and put on some muscle man. You must be wrestling in the super light mosquito weight. Looking for attention again!!!

      lean.sadie - 2012-10-31 15:09

      Pretty funny Jimmy, not as funny as the AB's drawing to the worst Ausie team in history though, and your coach blaming the ausies for poaching players. Still makes me laugh.

      Lol, read Jimmynz's comment above!!!

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 13:06

      Blou it reminds me of Loftus when ticket sales were so bad last year that they had to pick up bus loads of people in Soweto and give them free entry to make the stadium look full. I still laugh when I think of those horrible red T shirts they made the poor okes wear.

      jasper.benadie - 2012-10-31 13:22

      Firrst response from WP, but the Bulls..........

      Evan - 2012-10-31 12:35

      Hmmm, perhaps you are right, it will go back to the Stormers or the Sharks, I sincerely hope you are not referring to the Pretoria area... would hardly say that PTA is SA's best example of civilization... haha that's a rather funny comment you have a great sense of humor. Some people take their rugby wa-a-a-a-ay too seriously, it's just a game, couple weeks later Stormer players, Bulls players and sharks all put on the green and gold and play for the very same team. When Bryan Habana scores for them do you not cheer him or when Hougaard scores do you not cheer him...

      jasper.benadie - 2012-10-31 12:37

      stirrer.stirrer -Basically anywhere but Capetown

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 12:43

      Petzer.Franc the fact that you're from Tshwane and you can spell "civilization" is a step in the right direction. One big word a day..........you'll get there.

      Should they have followed the Loftus tradition and thrown them against the head with empty bottles?

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 12:39

      If it were the Bulls they would have had a fat boere aunty on the bus screaming "jou mase p....." at the crowd.............after throwing empty bottles at them.

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 13:01

      It makes perfect sense. With the success they will have over the next few years, they will need a bigger stadium. We will need to make space for all the Bulls and Lions who will now become WP/Stormers supporters.

      jaco.groenewald.731 - 2012-10-31 13:08

      bootman.bokke - Like all the WP fans that became Bulls in the last 11 years???

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 13:16

      Jaco what do you mean "all the WP fans"? It was only two. Blou Masjien and Blou Johnny...........but hey, they're idiots, so we were glad to see them go.

  • Candice Nicole Botes - 2012-10-31 13:25

    Did it ever cross anyones mind that the people were begging for money? It is one of the poorest areas in Cape Town, and when seeing these players they took a chance and asked for money! Granted the way the team handled the situation was wrong, but their hearts were in the right place!

      bootman.bokke - 2012-10-31 13:33

      Candice, asking a Bulls fan to think reasonably is like asking a dung beatle not to gather dung. It is in their nature. They are hurt because the closest they got to the Currie Cup was watching WP winning it on TV. Why would they give up an opportunity to run down the best team in SA.

      stirrer.stirrer - 2012-10-31 13:35

      Candice, nothing wrong with what the team did. The only people who would think it's "pathetic" etc. are those morons who don't know where or how Khayelitsha is. There's a saying, "Be humble in losing, and gracious in winning". Some of these kommintors remind me of a certain town where we went to play rugby in my schools days. We always beat them, and they had the habit of pelting the school bus with rocks as we were leaving. Losing brought out the worst in them - just like the suurgat sore losers on this forum.

      ReneMuller.XOXO - 2012-10-31 13:38

      No Candice, people get killed for far less than R50 in SA. What if a 10 year old picks up R50 and a couple of juvenile delinquents follows the 10 year old, next thing you read is 10 year old murdered over R50 - EXTREME???? No Candice, very stupid act by them, especially in that area.

    Lean Sadie, kyk man jy gee die WP ondersteuners darem n slegte naam. Wees bly jou span het gewen en fier die wen. Los die BULLS manne nou uit. Ek weet dis baie moeilik om te verstaan hoe dit voel om te wen. n DEKADE is lang ouboet. Eendag sal jul ook nog n trofee wen, dalk oor nog so 11 jaar so los nou maar die Comments van die BULLS wat al 3 Super titels het en n paar CC titels in die tyd wat WP 1(EEN) CC titel het. Jy moet rugby begin verstaan voor jy so baie praat. SHOCKING
