Its not so long since Munster wouldn't have got 8k supporters unless it was a touring international team that brought them out. You've been spoiled the last few years, and success has bred the support base you have now, don't get too arrogant about it.
Spare me the moral indignation and chippy shoulder. I've given Connacht credit where it's due on this forum. Check my post history if you want.
My point was entirely relevant. They have had a good run in the Challenge cup this season culminating in a bumper crowd for the visit of Toulon. That doesn't mask their woeful record in the Magners. Let's look at the stats shall we:
Season 05-06 - Joint bottom
Season 06-07 - second from bottom
Season 07-08 - bottom
Season 08-09 - bottom
Season 09-10 - likely bottom
Season 05-06 - third from bottom (1790)
Season 06-07 - second from bottom (1980)
Season 07-08 - second from bottom (2260)
Season 08-09 - bottom (1989)
Season 09-10 - bottom (2147)
It seems easier for some Connacht fans to dismiss criticism while ignoring the facts. Your lot is unfortunate through lack of investment but don't go accusing Leinster or Munster fans of arrogance for pointing out the obvious.
