Re: To Saracens fans

A different version of Saracens can make it back to the Premiership, and can now be welcomed without reservation when they do.

Like Mike Brown once said everyone did, I hated Saracens - not the coaches or the players or the fans, but the whole 'the reason we win all the time is because we have a superior ethos and care more about our players' thing. It just seemed so smug, and, I always suspected, false. When that turned out to be correct, the -35 points seemed like an insufficient penalty to me and did nothing to temper my dislike.

Things are truly different now. I am pretty sure that the "Nigel did nothing wrong" brigade will melt away faster than a snowball in the Sahara when it comes to November games in front of a couple of thousand, and the real rugby fans who see relegation through will have the respect of us all. I think you will find yourselves very much welcome back when a new incarnation of Saracens rises from the ashes.
