That is immensely disrespectful to Hull... quite frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself. It's that kind of attitude that - were it to come from a fan of one of the 'big' teams - would instantly be branded "arrogant". I despise that kind of attitude. Hull earned their place because they outplayed with QF opponents. They did so and the Panthers took notice - and came out with every intention of going at them 100%. Which is why the score ended up as high as it did. At least our team showed them some respect. Yes, we slackened off in the third... but before that - Hull were the opponents and were there to be treated seriously - and that's exactly what they got.
Also, you'd probably have been in a worse spot if we hadn't got your so-called 'bye' in the semis. Because Belfast would have had the first semi regardless, and if they'd had Hull, then you lot would have faced us in the second semi... and either been knocked out anyway, or ended up in the final with even less rest time than you actually ended up having. So exactly what you're whingeing about is beyond me.
No, not "year in year out". IIRC, we've been in those blocks for 2 years. I happen to think that it should continue to rotate, your point there - as far as it goes - has some validity... but as usual, you decide to exaggerate. I personally have sat in blocks 7, 9, 13 & 17 during finals weekends (and those are just the ones I can remember right now) - all of which where the Panthers fans didn't have either of the middle sections.
due to the fact it was supposed to be a neutral venue the fans used to rotate each year giving the best views to different clubs. Now the team having to pay the least to be at the play-offs get the best seats year in year out
