    very disappointing opening of the aviva today, the irfu made no attempt to welcome irish rugby back to its natural home, no music beforehand, no raz ma taz, no national anthems, nothing to interest the crowds, the game itself was brutal and I would say hasl of the specators left at half time.

    would you agree that leaving Croke Park was a huge loss in revenue,Aviva cannot match its capacity ,which means less tickets for us at home and abroad,ie if you only offer the away supporters 10,000 tickets thats all we will get inreturn from the away matches

    Croke park was just a stop gap . It seems to me that the aviva is totally based on costing issues and two different organisations involved . On one hand the clueless fai which unfortunately i cant see the football team filling a 70/80 thousand regurlarly which matches against the likes of andorra , moldova etc. The other hand the irfu who could fill the stadium for six nations games but thats only 2/3 at home every year and maybe the odd munster/leinster game . I would have thought 65000 would have been a fair seating compromise , but Im not John Delaney or Tom Grace

    I know rugby isn't nearly as commercialised as soccer, but take a look at how fans of the different clubs are being treated at any of the finals. The Europa league finals this season/next year is at lansdowne road, how many tickets do you think will be given to the fans for this final? I'll be absolutely astonished if the fans of each team will get 10k tickets. The rest will go to corporate scums that doesn't follow the teams at all, but just uses this as a day out to impress their corporate scum friends. Disgusting if you ask me. They could build it to 80k and you'd most likely only get 12k or 13k to each club. This is not about the normal fan anymore, it is fine when they sit there on a freezing wet january wednesday, but when it comes to the finals in May, it is the corporate scums that take over. Disgusting. And rant over for now.

    I know you were on a rant and we all do it from time to time . But not all corporate people are scum ,I have premium level seats in croker which i share amongst my customers if my county arent involved but they still go to genuine supporters .
