      Who gives a crap. The whole super 15 is crap right now. Look at all the finals games. We might all have to start watching Northern Hemisphere Rugby. The last 4 Finals games have been so crap, I Bet the Varsity Cup stuff was better quality and more exciting. These guys are getting overplayed soooooooooooo much its crazy.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-02 22:37

Jy ly aan erge tonnel visie boet - erg gebuig !!!! En persoonlik dink ek die skoen pas nogal as ek al jou ander comments oor al die forums lees. Word wakker en sien iemand wat kan help !!! Sterkte !!!

      @NS moet ek regtig nou iets vir jou se?

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-03 14:13

      @Frik - Kan jy werklik aan iets konstruktiefs dink ???

      Frik - 2011-07-03 17:05

      @NS nee dit is die probleem...

  • Northern Stormer - 2011-07-02 19:14

    Time to eat humble pie guys - We (The Stormers) lost and was beaten by a better team. No excuses of ref's, forward passes, illegal ball fetching etc. The Crusaders were better and I for one will be supporting them next weekend. Well done Crusaders and sorry Stormers but like everyone said - no BMT, no passion and once again no cup - like they said - we will try again next year !!!! I will again be their to support you guys, for better or worse !!!!

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-02 19:16

      O-yes and no RSA won this S15 cup yet - 3 x S14's is history and will be remembered yes but not for long !!! Only in Pretoria !!! Lets support the boks now !!!!!

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-02 20:32

      Sour moron - eat your humble pie, atleast you will stop speaking - you just sound a bad old sport, like some of your other buddies.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-02 22:35

      @GreameBB - No need for me to stop speaking at all. At least when I speak, I speak about rugby and do not insult other people due to my inability to overcome my lack of .......... (okay you can make the choice because there are to many to select from !!!) No moron here, no bad sport herer and no buddies either - beaten by far end of story. PARKVIEW !!!!

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-02 23:22

      @Norther Stormer - If you are such a sport, then why end your comments with a little stab at the Bulls? Take it boet! Atleast we have something to remember in Pretoria.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-03 07:05

      @GreameBB - Why not take a stab at the Bulls. Just imagine how boring things would have been if we all supported the same team. I am a Stormers support, will always be one and things won't change at all.You will note my stab at the Bulls is not personal, not under the belt, not racist and aimed at a person at all - it's called stirring, but if you cannot handle it and need to revert to insulting comments, feel free because then my stab caused did exactly what it was meant to do - expose the unhealthy mentallity certain (NOTE CERTAIN!!!) Bulls supporters (NOTE SUPPORTERS) shows when commenting on these forums. Use it or loose it and if the shoe fits, wear it !!! And just to end things with a little bit opf spice, you are correct you do have something to remember in Pretoria no doubt about it - like I said in Pretoria alone !!!

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-03 09:41

      Ag dude - you look for K@K, and cry when you get it. I havent started insulting you mate. And if you say things to get a rise, you sure fell into your own trap. Oh, lastly, Pretoria will remind you till the day you die - Typical Stormer, cant accept the facts, so you try to ignore them. You are boring me now.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-03 14:26

      @GreameBB - Not surprising me - the boring part - Not afraid of your empty threats boet - not worried at all !!!!! I know they will remind me because I stay here assh_ _ _ !!! That's all they remember the successes - the rest is forgotten (conveniently!!) Your witty remarks and insults do not make any impression on me at all and yes you are fitting the description and I am more convinced than ever - the shoe fits !!! This was my last comment towards you on this particular subject - your knowledge lacks dismallly !! See you in CC !!!

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-03 15:26

      @Northern Stormer - so what if you live in Pretoria? I deducted that from your name. You dont mind sucking out a living here, but you think you doing Pretoria a favour. Move to your beloved Cape, and then you can stop being such a sour ass_ _ _ _. What knowledge are you speaking about? And if I dont agree with you, is that a lack of knowledge? Again, so typical. Yawn - bye-bye

    @Stormers.Ek sien daar is nog nie eers berig geskryf oor die Stormers se vertoning nie want dit was nie vertoning nie.Wat is die verskil tussen 7de en gelyk 3 de.Niks(Sorry julle het darrem daardie ander beker gewen omdat julle bo in SA geeindig het).Stormers was pateties vanaand.

  • BCC - 2011-07-02 23:24

    All the comments from Bulls fans makes me laugh. You idiots crap on about being the best, and how you are so great. Face facts you arrogant Bulls chumps, you didn't even make a 6 team playoff. You have only won the super comp 3 times (as has Nz's second best side) while the Crusaders have more than doubled your pathetic record. As for todays game. Yes the Stormers choked but they are still SA best team, the occasion just got too much for them.

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-03 00:33

      BCC - Who invited you? This is between us and the Stormers, and this will never end. It actually isnt about the Crusaders at all. You are like a mad dog, you will bite your mother. Your attempt to cause friction between us and the Stormers is moronic - it existed way before any Super competition. Bye-bye See you choke at the RWC

      BCC - 2011-07-03 01:45

      I think you will find that this has nothing to do with the Bulls. They exited the tournament weeks ago. SA Super Teams = biggest chokers in world sport!

      Frik - 2011-07-03 05:03


      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-03 07:14

      @BCC - I am a Stormer supporter and feel your onesided comments are uncalled for. RSA teams are no chokers at all .We play and support our teams with passion at all times.The definition of a choker is clearly far beyond your level of thinking and understanding and if your way of looking at things tell you that RSA teams are chokers, then I need to add something to it - guess which international team was the biggest chokers in the RWC since RSA was reallowed to international rugby - yes you missed that one as well hey !!! - THE ALL BLACKS BOET !!!!!

      BCC - 2011-07-03 09:11

      @Northern Stormer, you would have some credibility if you wern't just handed a hiding. Cough, cough choke choke. Have you guys really not won anything in 11 years? Northern Stormer you truly are an embarrassment. Come to NZ and get some hints on how to play, we have a school side that should be able to teach you a thing or two. hahahahahah

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-03 09:47

      @BCC - you right, the Bulls are chokers - we choked you a few years in a row now, and will be back to choke you again. As for your S15 teams, I saw alot of choking this year too. But, when we fight for the pride of rugby at the end of the year, then we will see the "Kings of choke" take it to another level. This time in their own country.

      BCC - 2011-07-03 09:59

      Graeme Blue Balls, i said last week hat i can't wait to post a comment after the Stormers are humiliated. Now i can't wait to post after the RWC how the ABs demolished their opposition. Unfortunately we probably won't play your chumps because you have Wales in your pool. SA seem to struggle against the powerhouse sides these days. Remember the Scotland game last year. You my friend are pathetic and of no consequence to the Crusaders and the world #1 ABs.

      BCC - 2011-07-03 10:01

      By the way blue balls graeme, how many titles have the Bulls won? Did i hear 3? Crusaders 7. Head to head between bulls and crusaders? Check your facts chump.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-07-03 14:40

      @BCC - Mate your Crusader team was the best yesterday and yes we got a serious hiding - still does not change the fact that based on your assumptions and standards, NZ are the real International rugby chokers - Agreed !!! let's move on and wait for RWC and if you manage to win this RWC I will apologise - if not I will remember you !!! Yes last time we won something significant was Curriecup 2000 & 2001. No embarrasment here my friend - just a loyal rugby supporter for better or worse - we can take anything and we will be back for your scalp !!!

      GraemeBB - 2011-07-03 15:48

      @BCC - whats with the name calling - LOL! Cant take it? Speaking of stats, the only RWC your boys have lifted is in 1987, and the Boks didnt take part, or it probaby be zero. When we lost to Scotland, we had our second team playing, and then we followed it up by giving the English a rugby lesson. Yes, 3 Super wins, and if my poor knowledge serves me correctly, the Crusaders also participated in those competitions, and did not make it. By the way BCC - why are you here? This isnt a NZ site. And if you look at the posts, you will notice that you are the only sheep-shagger here. Lost, or just looking for a fight you think you cant lose? Move along, go play with your friend(s?).
