Booing opponents on sport, is it ok?

after a little fight in volleyball thread concerning cheering skills from crowds i'm asking the whole forum, do you think that home crowd is allowed to boo opponents from the first point of a match even during rallies?
Since for me it's a sign of rudeness i was told it's normal, or better, it's good because it shows that the crowd support their team. IMO you can support your team as loudly as you can, but booing opponents is just bad...what's your idea?

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Depends on the sport I guess. Pretty much anything goes in football, although it's toned down a hell of a lot in the past couple of decades.

Re: Booing opponents on sport, is it ok?

For whatever reason Im used to it in football, but the way the French do it in rugby during the kicks bothers me. Doing it in individual sports, tennis golf etc. is a big no-no.

Coz Quade Cooper deserves it, the little ass.

Anyways, depends on the sport. Individual sports, no. Those big stadium team sports, go for it. If its Quade Cooper on the streets, yes.

Re: Booing opponents on sport, is it ok?

I agree it depends on the sport and the situation. I mean in Central America they hurl bags of urine at opposing soccer teams, so anything short of that really doesn't even move the needle.

You all need to get over it...it's weird...and a little obsessive.

Re: Booing opponents on sport, is it ok?

At soccer level, I love to boo opponents teams especially the main rivals of my team ! Why would it be disrespectful ? Do you think that the main rivals of your team don't do the same against your own team ? That's a part of sport !

Wolves are my soul, my everything !

Know your real ennemies : don't let you fool by the mainstream media : They are full time LIARS ! NEVER trust the government !

BNP Paribas, JP Morgan, Lagardere are criminals : WAKE UP !

They started that so their own team wouldn't get put off by others doing it, all French supporters do it for ALL teams regardless, so players are used to the noise during the kicks. I also think as the kicker noise would be better than dead silence, I mean how much more pressurizing must that silence be?

Re: Booing opponents on sport, is it ok?

I personally don't like it. Especially in individual sports and if the player being booed has done nothing to warrant it.

depends on the sport. booing in group sports is okay, it kinda makes a better atmnosphere and i am sure pro sportsmen are used to it.
