Chiefs, I think what's causing the friction is mixing up a few different things.

There is plenty of respect and admiration for what Exe have achieved, I don't anyone begrudges the club (or fans) that.

There is jealousy of this. Bristol blew there chance and spent years wallowing in a division devoid of attention and losing our best and brightest.

But there is some dislike of the image in the press of Exe as poorly funded, plucky under dogs, who players only play for love of the club that turned over big-shot, rich boys Bristol to gain there chance in the big time. Which is just untrue.

The style of rugby is down to taste, and I haven't seen enough of Exe to comment, but I don't hear a lot of praise for the style on any of the other network boards. But if our team was winning I doubt we'd care either.
