    Dissapointed With Indian Suppoters

    i was extremely disappointed at the attitude of the indian crowd...the stadium was half empty when around 10 overs were left, where is the sportsman spirit guys? when the **** players were returning to the pavillion there were only a handful of ppl there to clap for them, i rem during the karachi odi our whole stand stood up and clapped for them, do u rem us leaving the ground early? we were actually cheering for dravid to get his hundred, but in kolkata even when salman made a century the response wasnt gr8, i just hope things improve in the upcoming tour in feb
    cheers

    Oh behalf of the Indian population, that being over 1 billion people, I offer my apologies.

    Hate to stereotype but South Indian fans have a reputation to be more sporting generally...

    Not being from South India, I can say that that's pretty true.

    Actually, I believe that that's the general behaviour of sub-continental country fans. It's just too extreme.

    It's a typical attitude of the subcontinental people barring Sri Lanka ( Hey it's close to South India ) . It's only that in the recent months , the behaviour of the Pakistan Crowd changed that makes Kolkata crowd look bad even more.

    I think Kolkata crowds have never been known for their sportiveness. That said, I thought they behaved really well as long as they were there. And I am sorry too, on behalf of the cricket fans in India.

    I think they carry this passionate/emotional stuff a bit too far. The Calcutta crowds , that is.

    The crowds in south are the best (which really means Bangalore and Chennai) followed by Bombay.

    North Indian crowds can often be rowdy and unpredictable.
