Two topics done to exhaustion last year
On the subject of kicking, if people want to chatter amongst themselves quietly I don't have an issue with it. Shouting or making noises to distract the kicker is a different matter.
Silence isn't totally necessary in my opinion.

It's not a matter of respect or lack of, especially if you are just chatting to your mate about the try or the foul in the build up etc.

My last post about this because I don't want to labour the point, but if this was "done to exhaustion last year" like you say then why wasn't anything done about it?

Kingston Park is the worst crowd in the league for noise during kicks. I know Newcastle isn't a rugby town so maybe a lot of people don't even realise what they're doing, but that's why the message should be put across during the game. They even do it at Twickenham so it's not a patronising suggestion. The way it is currently doesn't show your club in the best light.

You may optionally give an explanation for why this post was reported, which will be sent to the moderators along with the report. This can help the moderator to understand why you reported the post.
