Is the Stade Toulousain highlighted too much by Canal +? In any case, this is the opinion conveyed by a strange petition circulating on the Internet.
“Since the professional era of the high level, the media including Canal +, have tried to impose an ideology according to which Toulouse was the kings of rugby.”
It is with these words that the pamphleteer petition begins online Tuesday, October 12 on the site mesopinions.com, entitled “No to the Toulouse mania of Canal +”. Believing that the encrypted channel, broadcaster of the Top 14, overexposes the performances of the champion of France and reigning European champion, she imposes “a unique vision of rugby according to which rugby should be made only of passes and other clowning stupid, CANAL acts like bloodthirsty murderers of our sport. “
Call for resistance
Undefeated leader of the Top 14, Stade Toulousain often had the honors of the flagship match on Sunday evening, broadcast on Canal + at 9:05 p.m. This was particularly the case for the receptions in Toulon on September 12, then in Clermont on the 26th. “Teams like PAU, BRIVE, CLERMONT, LA ROCHELLE, or CASTRES (I am sure I forget.) Are then downgraded to the background. that the values advocated by the latter are more admirable than those of the red and black company “considers the Internet user behind the text, who calls” for the resistance of all the actors and supporters of the TOP14 to stop this infamous tragedy that we living.”
If this petition, undoubtedly to be read in the second degree, has so far only reported 100 signatures, Stade Toulousain, him, will travel to Lyon this Sunday … at 9:05 pm.
