    it is, but a lot of the community are of the opinion that you shouldn't post inflammatory content about identifiable people without them having the opportunity to respond.

    Perhaps PG is defending them because, on this forum, they can't really defend themselves.

    Even if they come on under a pseudonym and defend themselves, it's still an anonymous, faceless poster versus a 15 year old who has been clearly identified as a Wests player who has been selected in the reps team.....pretty small community that.

    I'm not going to make the mistake of calling you an adult, that may or may not be the case, but even if you are, possibly you should pour some of that passion into getting your boy (or yourself, I really don't know) good enough to actually challenge the boys you have slandered on the field, rather than from behind a keyboard.

    And before you bother posting about my pseudonym, plenty here know me, if I put my real name, very few would recognize it, but get somebody to point GIGS out at a force game, I'd be happy to back up my posts.

    You may have a point there GIGS, although the decision is not mine to make, I personally think it is about time to take the Metro Rugby Forum and put into it's own website, keeping it, and some of the contributors and their opinions and ideals, at arms length from TWF.

    But then that would require these people to actually do something positive and make a real cotribution to something where they would be exposed to anonymous character assassination and critique rather than be a keyboard warrior.

    Those of us with a genuine interest in grassroots rugby don't want these ignorant muppets that have reared their ugly heads lately anywhere near the Metro section.There's enough of us negative whinging bastards over there already.

    Wests Scarborough 1st Grade juggernaut has played finals rugby each and every year since its inception and continues this remarkable feat yet again this season and unbelievably it's still rolling on.

    I'd have some reservations as there are genuine people among that forum who usually stir the pot without being (too) offensive. But I also think the intense negativity that has appeared, particularly this season is keeping, quite a few former regulars away. Pretty sure that would just continue as a lot of it is directed at The Force anyway.
