Where has Bris gone!

First we moved from the Mem.....had to happen.
Then it was all seater.....not rugby but have to live with it.
Then it was allocated seating except the Atyeo......ok could still turn up ad hoc and get to meet and sit with mates or like minded knowledgable supporters who are interested in the game and the club, not parents and kids who are only there as they got free tickets.
Then they closed the Ateyo so now you can only get allocated seats and are unable to sit with who you like which now waters down the athmosphere somewhat.
The merchandise also became absolute pants, sizes awful, fit awful and quality awful....ok wont buy anything and wear the good quality stuff from the past 9look how many people still wear kit from 15 years ago!)
Then we go down and still have to pay Premiership prices....hit me hard this one and have only been able to afford a few games this season.
Then we win promotion.....great last home performance but due to allocated seating was sat in a kids playground with the live version of Mumsnet, no interest in the game, no athmosphere. Was close to going home to watch it on tv!! No chance of moving to a place where the singing was loudest, again watering down the athmosphere and completely spoiling the match day experience for me.
Then as we are still dreaming of a proper return to the Prem we get this rebranding...Bristol Bears!! A picture of a @#$%& off Brizzley on the shirts which basically waves goodbye to the past history of the club...why? At least the childrens hospital will be able to make use of all the teddy bears thatíll be thrown on the pitch by hysterically laughing away supporters!!
Rugby traditions of standing, of all the noisy supporters congregating together to give a good athmosphere, of decent merchandise which tips a nod to the past history of the club (blue and white hoops, the crest, alphabet instead of numbers), its all disappearing in the name of commerce!
Whatever happened to Bris Rugby Club........
