UNRULY RUGBY SPECTATORS
NMB Stadium, it's your responsibility! Restrict the sale of beer (sell no other alcohol!) to one per adult! Increase security in the stands before and during the game. Arm security with pepper spray and empower them to remove an unruly spectator from the stadium, no matter how trivial the incident or if a valid seating ticket cannot be produced!
IVAN OBERHOLZER, RUGBY SUPPORTER
BULI Ngomane, too much said and done too late. Fact of the matter is the incident, if handled as you say by prompt and professional personnel timeously, should never have occurred. Explain that.
I HAVE witnessed how people walk up to the gate guards, offer them a R20 note and in they go. They were the ones who just sat anywhere on an open seat. You go to the toilet, come back and there's someone in your seat! You ask to see their ticket, they just get up and slink away. No proper control at gate!
BEST to avoid any venue that allows alcohol at all. Cricket on the radio is best.
LAY OFF HAMMERING WATSONS
TERRY and his ilk just cannot take Cheeky Watson and we all know the reason why. Cheeky played non-racial rugby under the banner of Sacos. Cheeky, you are a hero of the true rugby fans. God bless you.
IS it because the Watsons are more human than some people that they are always humiliated? Leave other people alone.
SUPPORT SOUTHERN KINGS
TO all the brainless local Sharks supporters, if we (Port Elizabeth-born rugby supporters) don't support our side, the Kings, we will be back watching rugby on the television all the time and not in our stadium. I just do not understand how these people think. Please wake up. Although I support a side in Super Rugby my main aim is to watch rugby live in our city.
DOUBLE MURDER ACCUSED CAN'T REMEMBER
ACCUSED Andrico Williams can remember exactly what he had to drink and smoke, but is blank about the murders. What a joke.
FED UP WITH POOR SERVICE DELIVERY
THE SACP is fed up with the lack of service delivery in the metro. Vote for the DA and your dreams will be answered. It's that easy.
MIXED REACTION TO CROSS PLAN
JESSE Walker, Jesus is alive. Be careful what you say. He listens. To know him and live for him is not personal. He says in his word: go out and preach the gospel that Jesus saves. Accept him in your life and you will experience him personally (John 3:16). He lives in my heart.
WHAT is it with you people and all your negative responses to the cross being put up at the bridge? I don't see any of you doing anything! Nothing or nobody can fix the problem, but the Lord himself. God bless you all who are involved in the project. Readers are quick to respond and tell you what would be better than God's cross, but none of you even considered doing anything about it. Rather keep quiet please.
ELDERLY MAYOR DRAWS CRITICISM
BRENDA Galloway asks who in their right mind could have appointed an 81-year-old "mayor". The same person who sees no problem spending more than R200-million of someone else's money on his kraal, that's who.
FOR the sake of discipline and dignity in our metro, let's give Oom Ben a chance to start a clean slate with the woman municipal manager. Madiba ruled the country at almost the same age, so is Robert Mugabe now.
WITH regard to the ageist remarks about the new mayor, Winston Churchill was 71 years old when as prime minister he defeated Hitler and was prime minister of Great Britain at age 81. Jan Smuts was prime minister of South Africa at age 78. Anyway the new mayor cannot possibly be worse than his predecessor. Good luck to him!
NEW mayor: age is a state of mind. The four 80+ year-old guys on page 18 of Thursday's Herald look in better shape than a lot of 50-year-olds.
AN 81-year-old for mayor? Who's fooling who? He should be sitting relaxing in God's waiting room.

TAKE ACTION AGAINST OFFICIALS
FALSE audit reports: why don't the heads of the departments who submit false audit reports get fired by government under the Financial Act? Instead they are promoted to better positions. Cadre deployment. The more they steal the better the job they get. Fact!
CHRISTIAN MARTIN IN TRADITIONAL DRESS
I LOVE Christian Martin's man boobs and Bhisho rolls! He really looks like a warrior! Conan the Bhisho-arian!
HEY Christian, best cover up. The Khoi never had fat tummy rolls!
CHRISTIAN Martin in Khoi attire: you need to cover up and join Weighless. Real Khoi live off the land and are a lot thinner. Gravy train in full swing.
HENDRI, BLUEWATER BAY, PORT ELIZABETH
THE new municipal manager is racking up the cock-ups, like the Seaview refuse site!
WE pay our rates conscientiously, but the municipality does not want to spend any money on new library books. At Walmer most of the books are 30 to 50 years old!
IS COUNTRY SO SAFE, MR PRESIDENT?
BRIAN on unsafe country: if indeed we live in a safe country as proclaimed by President Jacob Zuma, why does he think is it necessary to spend all those millions on security for his private house? You can't have it both ways, Mr President.
