Sporting fans free to support who they like

I refer to Neil Francis's article ('Sunday Independent', May 22) and his unnecessary comment regarding Munster fans who wear Northampton scarves. What is Mr Francis trying to say? Will Liverpool fans support Man United in the Champions League final next weekend because Man U is also an English team?

Did Irish fans support England in the rugby World Cup final because they are a Six Nations team? Will a Cork fan support Kerry in an All-Ireland final because they are also from Munster? I think not, and I'll support who I want in any match regardless of Mr Francis's opinion.
