Sure if yee were decent neighbours yee probably should do. All yee seem to do is begrudge us and make little of our achievements by picking them apart the whole time (ie. yee had refs on yere side, yere on the way down, such and such a team had no backs and as some other clown mentioned previously, the false modesty in interviews etc), that sort of crap I hear from Waterford people the whole time. What I meant by wishing us well I didnt mean in a literal sense, I meant that yee never seem to give us credit where its due. Im just waiting now for someone to belittle the 4 in a row, "oh yee had no real competition" "Overrated". Come on whos going to be the first? Nobody said anything about loving us, who cares about that? But yee are just so bitter yee cant give us credit where its due. Seeing as someone else brought Tipp into it, I remember in 2010 after the match, a Tipp fan turning to me on the hill after the match and shaking my hand commiserating and saying we would be back. I heard many stories of similar events that day too. One thing about the Tipp-Kilkenny rivalry, it is a ferocious rivalry and both hate each other but at the same time theres a genuine respect there. Cant say the same for Waterford though
