As a passionate county with excellent support, why does Waterford not have their own forum please?

Having this discussion with family and friends there is a calculated decision to stay off these forums by Waterford people. Not so long ago the abuse and vitrol dished out against our young players got out of hand. So the best way to protect them is not to engage. I myself found it difficult to have meaningful debate without it getting personal. Agree or disagree.
Also don't worry about us supporting out team we are always there for them.

It would be a sad state of affairs if having your own county forum was an indication of your passion for hurling! I havent looked at, or contributed, to the Galway hurling forum on this site for a couple of years and I doubt I have missed much!

Always supporting them in 'Spirit' if not actually physically there at the ground.

Abuse and vitriol... On this site?
You're a bit fragile if the stuff said on Hoganstand gets you upset.

boards.ie will only not allow threads if its complete repeat of previous threads/its libellous/trolling in very bad way
