Sadly I just can't bring myself to support them anymore. Their new shirts are red (well, towards the bottom anyway). All started to go down hill when they were were forced to use numbers (not letters) on the shirts! And I couldn't set foot at trashcan gate. I just couldn't.
My cousin used to captain a Club called Bristol Rugby FC and my uncle played prop forward for them (and Gloucestershire) and he was also Chariman of selectors at some point... No idea what happened to that Club. "Bristol Bears". Really? Seriously, I don't have a connection with that Club any more and it saddens me.
well after the Chiefs won in midweek at the franchise,with a wonderful late score, it was off to Sale to get really well and truly stuffed ,Pantsdown dream of a premier winning team fails again
I enjoy it when the Bristol Bears lose. I support whoever they play against. Grrr.. they're really angry, like a hungry bear coming out of hibernation. Grrr... Obviously bears are part of the rich heritage of Bristol. Eh? What do you men they're not? Their re-branding is an insult to a once fine rugby Club. I really shouldn't be so petty. But I am.
