Mobile phones & Cameras

Post by cardoc » Fri May 10, 2013 9:45 am

A friend was telling me that a ban on mobile phones and cameras in new Ravenhill has been talked about, might not be a bad idea bring it into line with golf competitions where phones and flashes from cameras are considered a distraction to players. There could be a allocated place ( a wee hut) in some remote corner within the stadium, out of view of genuine rugby spectators, for those who are addicted to mobiles to use as smokers have now become accustomed :stir:

Wise up, oh great Physician to the Automotive Industry.

Golf & Rugby of course are a great comparison, both being played in bright daylight when flash photography from 50 metres would take the eye out of ye. And that quietness that pervades rugby matches, if it wasn't for the stands, you'd convince yourself that you were in 100 acres of sward forest sand & water.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

Is the Terracing not already a no smoking area because of the extended roof therefore making it a covered area, if so I would assume that it would apply to all new stands, from a personal point of view whither covered or not, smoking should be banned in crowed areas.....

Is the whole ground not non smoking, but not because of the extended roof

Indeed - rumour has it, it has been non-smoking for several years (hence my original comment)

Sounds like an April fool joke that has taken a while to get around

Only rugby ground I've ever been pulled up about a camera at was Stade De France.

Mind you, an f2.8 300mm might have been taking the widdle a bit, but it's a big place and I was up in the nosebleeds.
