Beer free rugby?!?!

An article has appeared in the press recently, about the possibility of 7s rugby being included in the Olympics. What that article doesn’t tell you though is what one of the major stumbling blocks is.

The IRB’s sevens tournament director, Beth Coalter, expects the IRB to have an answer from the International Olympics Committee (IOC) by October 9 next year. With demonstration matches being mooted for possible inclusion in the 2012 London Olympics already. The IOC will be sending a very large delegation to the 7s RWC Dubai from 5 – 7 March next year.

While in Dubai for the 7s I was speaking to an official involved with the 2009 Sevens RWC. During the discussion it became apparent that there was some concern about where to seat the IOC delegates that would be attending the event to consider the possible inclusion of rugby into the Olympic fold. Should they be placed in a stiff upper-lip area or should they be placed near the fans to allow them to experience the atmosphere?

A major concern was the image that rugby has of only being supported by alcohol induced louts. As the GCC is one of the regions with most probably the most diverse population of rugby supporting nations in the world, it was always a foregone conclusion that the Dubai 7s would be well supported. And we all know that Rugby support goes hand in hand with a beer or two. I am not saying drunkeness I am saying a beer or two.

If Rugby wants to be included in the Olympics I fully support that, but if it has to come at the price of not being allowed to have a beer while watching the game, then the IOC can pull that rod out and I will supply the vaseline for them to replace it with a rugbyball.


  • How long before the Dubai 7s becomes a “dry” event as well.

    The region is divided
    Paul Radley

    The International Rugby Board’s (IRB) frustration at the lack of Arab nationals playing rugby was crucial to their decision to disband the Arabian Gulf Rugby Football Union (AGRFU).

    The ruling body’s intention to divide the union, which is run from Dubai and includes the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait as full members, has been known for some years.

    The fact the area is represented by a regional – not a national – side sat uneasily with the IRB.

    The make-up of the union was originally sanctioned for the purposes of developing each member to the point where they could become self-sufficient.

    Two years ago, the union reviewed their development and decided: “To establish within the region self-sustaining individual nations playing rugby at all levels of the game.”

    While the game thrives in the main expat centres, such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the number of nationals playing the game is too small for the IRB’s liking.

    Following an audit 12 months ago, the game’s rulers advised the union to review the image of the game, and in particular assess whether “the stigma of alcohol is an issue stunting development”.

    The progress on that count is understood to have been too tardy for their liking.

    They are lobbying the International Olympic Committee to get rugby sevens accepted into the Games, and more Arab participation would bolster the perception of it being a global sport.

    As such, the IRB Council approved a plan last week to devolve the AGRFU and empower each of its member countries to spread the game.

    The union requested that the vote be deferred until next May, after the Rugby Sevens World Cup has taken place in Dubai, but that request was rebuffed.

    The Arabian Gulf are likely to play their final representative rugby at the 2010 Dubai Sevens, after which their place will be taken by a new UAE national rugby team.

    Rugby is booming in the UAE but clubs from the other member countries are incensed at the IRB’s decision.

    Karl Sutcliffe, the captain of Oman’s main club, Muscat, said: “It would be detrimental. I don’t think many of the countries would be able to put out a side in international rugby.”

    Taif al Delamie, an Omani national who is affiliated to Muscat, was the only Arab to play for the Gulf in the Dubai Rugby Sevens last weekend.

    And isn’t even a proper arab. The set him up with an interview for one of the local TV stations and then had an interviewer who spoke Arabic and taif who couldn’t speak a word of arabic. 😆

    He is a Born and bred brit who happens to qualify for an Omani passport. 😀

    That may have been a sarcastic comment but I think you are 100% correct.

    Having a beer or two during the game is almost traditional. Note a beer or two, NOT getting drunk.

  • I have never expierienced anything quite like the Dubai Sevens, in RSA, everybody was relaxed, no agro and it was a huge Party, so if the olympic officials dont like it. Then they can get stuffed. People who would never have even heard of rugby go to the sevens, just to enjoy a day out and half of the fun is having a couple of beers, while watching the game.

  • Tradition versus inclusivity oubaas.

    Sure its great to have a beer at a game, but what about the fact that its not just a cultural, but also a religious taboo for Muslims?

    Should we then disregard that as we enjoy the way things are now? Nothing wrong with that, but then lets accept the flipside of it as well.

    My feeling is that when in Rome, we should do as they do – let the Dubai 7’s be teetotal IF we think it will actually increase Arabian participation.

    UAE: Pork available, Alcohol Available Women can drive
    Bahrain: Pork, alcohol and Women drivers all no problem to any nationality including the thousands of Saudi’s who go to Bahrain for exactly that purpose every weekend

    These are all countries that are part of the GCC (Gulf co-operative council – Sort of like the EU) and all that run their nation on Sharia law.

    Whindy should be able to ellaborate but there is a “card system” in the UAE for alcohol. Along the lines of you prove what your income is and you get a license to buy alcohol for x amount per month depending on your income.

    Qatar is similar.

    Bahrain has bottle stores where anyone can go and buy but they are not allowed to advertise their name or product in any way. So for example if you walk into Africa and East or Gulf Cellars you may think you are walking into an office block and then once you are inside it is like a little treasure trove. 😎

    Interesting point, but it would seem that alcohol is in fact forbidden:
    Question: Why is alcohol forbidden in Islam?

    Answer: Intoxicants were forbidden in the Qur’an through several separate verses revealed at different times over a period of years. At first, it was forbidden for Muslims to attend to prayers while intoxicated (4:43). Then a later verse was revealed which said that alcohol contains some good and some evil, but the evil is greater than the good (2:219). This was the next step in turning people away from consumption of it. Finally, “intoxicants and games of chance” were called “abominations of Satan’s handiwork,” intended to turn people away from God and forget about prayer, and Muslims were ordered to abstain (5:90-91). (Note – the Qur’an is not arranged chronologically, so later verses of the book were not necessarily revealed after earlier verses.)

    In the first verse cited above, the word for “intoxicated” is sukara which is derived from the word “sugar” and means drunk or intoxicated. That verse doesn’t mention the drink which makes one so. In the next verses cited, the word which is often translated as “wine” or “intoxicants” is al-khamr, which is related to the verb “to ferment.” This word could be used to describe other intoxicants such as beer, although wine is the most common understanding of the word.

    Muslims interpret these verses in total to forbid any intoxicating substance — whether it be wine, beer, gin, whiskey, or whatever. The result is the same, and the Qur’an outlines that it is the intoxication, which makes one forgetful of God and prayer, which is harmful. Over the years, the list of intoxicating substances has come to include more modern street drugs and the like.

    The Prophet Muhammad also instructed his followers, at the time, to avoid any intoxicating substances — (paraphrased) “if it intoxicates in a large amount, it is forbidden even in a small amount.” For this reason, most observant Muslims avoid alcohol in any form, even small amounts that are sometimes used in cooking.

    The issue of actual practise or not is beside the point really – individual/ private hypocrisy is par for the course, and cant justify offending any religion.

  • Some more riveting beer history. 🙄

    Belgian beer styles vary from the popular pale lager and White beer to the esoteric appeal of Lambic beer and Flemish red. Belgium’s rich brewing history dates back to the Middle Ages, when monasteries began producing beer. Belgian beer production was assisted by the 1919 Belgian “Vandervelde Act” that prohibited the sale of spirits in pubs, inducing the market to produce beers with a higher level of alcohol. The act was lifted in 1983.

  • It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the “honey month”, or what we know today as the “honeymoon”.

  • One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.

    At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

    As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    NOW ——–

    Enough of that crap . . .

    The donkey later came back and bit the shit out of the farmer who had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected, and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.

    When you do something wrong and try to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.
