What do you think about this?
Should this be a race issue, is the team rejecting the man, is the media overplaying the race card?
Should the team have the power to attempt to reject Peter de Villiers? I don’t think so. I think they need to put up and play.
I also think I need to quickly say something about support and fanatacism in SA. Let’s put it this way. Peter de Villiers is screwed. The man has the toughest four years ahead of him. He can expect SA fans to hate him when we lose, love him when we win and use his race against him. We can expect some sort of media rumble about the Bok camp being in a mess.
And we can expect that the Springboks WILL NOT WIN the next World Cup. As fans we need to be realistic and factually accurate. No team has won it twice in a row, No coach has either so let us not put that much pressure on de Villiers. I think that a more reasonable goal is for our teams to perform well again in the Super 14 and to try and win the tri-Nations tournament. That is a realist goal in my opinion.
- Springboks reclaim #1 and win at the house of pain
- Boks can’t stop winning awards
- SA soccer in tatters – Let the Boks go, focus on Bafana
- Let Jake White go
- Proud, overwhelming, mixed feelings today – come on the Boks!
