If i remember rightly there was booing when opposition players lined up kicks at goal during the World Cup. Don't see a problem myself. Booing and jeering is just the fans way of letting the opposition know that they're on someone elses patch.

Did I not hear the Bulls booed as they ran on to the field in their Super game against the Stormers by the Stormers Supporters last weekend. Does that make the Stormers supporters moronic? By Springbokrugby's beliefs they obviously are, by mine they were just giving the Bulls a bit of a rev up and a welcome tpo Cape Town. As sonsofsamoa has pointed out there are far worse things that happen including supporters running onto the field and attacking a referee because they don't like his rulings. Perhaps the stadium was full of Kiwis reving up their Oz mates lol.

C'mon springbokrugby .. let's all be honest everyone boos and cheers it's a part of human nature, but what makes Rugby the best sport in the world is after the booing and cheering they respect the opponent and the outcome either way.. Compare that to what happened at the Super Rugby game between the Bulls and Blues...even though the game was finished, that old man or lady said something about Kevin Mealamus mum.. Now you tell me which behaviour we should be concerned about.. Stamping out people who boo will NEVER happen, it happens in every sport so get over it..

You serious? It's booing for gods sake. It's not racial abuse, they're not throwing bottles, fighting in the stands etc..... it's just a sound.
People pay good money to go the games so I think they should be able to cheer & boo what they like, It doesn't hurt anybody. They're only embarrassing themselves.

The tournament was enjoyable to watch, and was well staged. The only down side from the point of view of an avid rugby fan, was the utterly moronic and almost continuous booing which emanated from a spectator (I hesitate to call such a moron and "fan") particularly throughout the entire Cup Final match, whenever referee decisions did not go the way of the Samoans, and whenever Australia carried out any attacking manoeuvre, or kicked for goal.
Such behaviour definitely does NOT belong in a rugby stadium, and reflects very poorly on the half-wit who perpetrated it. Shame on you!
On a positive note, well done Japan and Tokyo, for hosting an excellent tournament.
