The confidence of Bok supporters is shot!!
November 05, 2012, 13:02:50

Look at the results of the Keo poll!!!

Who will win in Dublin on 10 November?

Total Votes: 450 Started: October 31, 2012

So 22% of Bok fans think Ireland will win. There are of course some foreign posters on Keo but cant think there are many Irish ones.

They probably have their doom merchants like Snapster and Mike! Hahahaahhahaha well we shall see I am not throwing in the towell. We can surely beat these Irish!

OK Beeno please explain how you get to 60% of bok supportrs thinking Ireland will win from a poll that clearly indicates that 78 % of Bok supporters think the boks will take it.

Only 22% of voters thought that Ireland will win....

Beeno

Did you take maths at one of the schools operating at present.   How do you get to a 60% of supporters thinking the Irish would win?

If I look at the figures provided above - 78% of the people polled think that the Springboks will win - of which 40% believe in a biggish win and 38% apparently think it is going to be a nailbiter

The Irish is supported by 22% of the voters.

I do not take much cognisance of polls of this nature - they are normally way out, as happened in the case of the CC Final.    I think most supportrs do not really consider the potentila game itself - they vote out of loyaalty - nothing else.

I still think it is going to be touch and go - with a faint suspucion that the Irish will win.   Meyer's weird squad really inspires no confidence and the Irish has home ground advantage.

How does the case remain the same. The evidence proves exactly the opposite as your statement. Supporters' confidance clearly not as shot as you are making it out to be as nearly 80% believe the boks will win this weekend, that is a big percentage.

only 22% think Ireland will win, so clearly they are in a minority.

Hardly surprising given Meyer has the 3rd worst record for a Bok coach after 9 tests and then he selects a poor squad to take us forward - the man is clueless

Ok from that point of view I undertand your argument. But still It is an international site, Keo is visited by Ausies and New Zealanders alike. Personally I don't find the negativety towards the team any more or less than it has been during either Jake White or Pdivvy's era. Or for that matter any other coach. Oddly enough percentage wise it is about the same. This tells me nothing really.
