Jealousy

Post by bails »

Good to see someone is obviously very jealous of our success.
And also has the arrogance to think he might be good enough that we might want him !

It's a mark of respect to be honest, he may not realise it himself but that is the signal he is sending out in that interview. If Munster were the dominant team in this relationship then you might find Zebo and the rest of the turnip munchers to be a bit more magnanimous.
Long may they hate us.

And gambling's for fools,

Living rent free in Munster heads 24/7 as the saying goes.

I think 'Zeebs' has shown again and again what an egotistical prat he is.

The stuff on Twitter after the Wales game mocking his former team mates was the perfect example of his mentality.

A former Munster player hates Leinster???!!! Wow!

I never get the hate for Zebo, I usually hate all the other provinces when we play them too. Also don't get why he can't joke about the Wales game, it's a rugby match and his mates were playing, not a serious life or death situation. I like his honesty in interviews, would love if more players were like that and he's clearly a very popular guy.

Zebo played the best - not the flashiest - rugby of his life under Joe Schmidt - his involvement in the IRL win vs NZ in Chicago being the outstanding example. The problem with Zebo is he's a lazy s+++e and a disruptive personality in a squad context due to his delusions of grandeur. As the ancient Greeks used to say, "Empty vessels make the most noise".

The one tour to the USA he was supposedly nearly lifted by the cops after breaking an aerial off a car while drunk. Then there was the infamous ménage-à-trois in the Shelbourne with Murray and the young one from KPMG. The guy is a messer, I'm sure Joe was glad to see the back of him.

-odd set of sentences to put together.
And yet you totally understand and endorse Zebo's hate for Leinster.

That wasn't a tour IIRC, it was a holiday after the Lions tour.

Funny how nobody says that Murray is disruptive when talking about the other incident.

He says that he would love to play Leinster some day... Well he is doing his best, week in and week out, to make sure that will not happen - Racing are second from bottom in the Top 14 at the moment. If I was a Racing supporter I would be happier if he was focused on playing better rather than continually trying to stir up stuff in Ireland.

He has just delivered another reason, if it was ever needed, why he should never wear a green jersey again.

I don't see why he gets singled out for it and don't think it's big news that he hates Leinster.

I just think people jump on everything Zebo says and that it's OTT. There are a couple of things that I don't like about him tbh, I'm not actually his biggest fan, but I don't like the reaction to fairly bog standard things that he says. For example, when he says he'd like to playing for Ireland I can never understand why people take issue with that. He can't, and he knew that when he left, but he wishes it was different, big deal.

I don't really see to much wrong with what he said here I would hope there is a lot of hate for Munster in the Leinster dressingroom, as long as you can control it and park it when you need to I think a bit of that type of thing is good.


I do think though that Zebo generally comes across as the guy we all knew/know in school/life who loves a good joke, loves banter etc. as long as he is the guy who gives it out., a roast master. He seems to get a bit pissy when the shoe is on the other foot which would make you question how genuine his 'Fun Bobby' persona really is. Of course I don't know the guy and I am only going on how he conducts himself in general/social media.

Anyway is he still playing rugby? :lol:

No problem with anything he said. "I love that I really dislike Leinster". Think its really refreshing to hear that kind of talk. Fair play to him.

I hope he finally finds some club level success to go with all that cash he got for moving :)

I've a massive problem with how he metaphorically rammed the knife into the back of Joe Schmidt, who's currently breaking his little bollix in Japan trying to get Ireland into a semi-final for the first time ever, by comparing him so unfavourably with Rob Penney and essentially laying all the blame for the team's recent disappointing results at the door of the coach. Scurrilous, IMO.

Yeah. I mean I don't think he even hates Leinster half as much as Keith Earls does, love the player, enjoy how much he hates us. Well on the days that it makes him tackle our player before the ball arrives and gives up a penalty try or when it makes him run on and pretend to score a try rather than hold his hands up in embarrassment exposing the hate as such a petty little thing. On the days he does a number on us because he's so worked up less so. And he really has done that.

Zebo never showed that level of motivation.

Interesting to hear how professional the Racing set up is - last time I watched him he looked like he had nibbled a few pies too many.

Who cares how much you hate your rival. He left the province he said he loved.
