The loss of faith, the withering away of religion is a fascinating experience when it occurs not as a crisis or existential event but rather, as I percieve it, more normally, as a slowly increasing withering away due to a mutitude of factors.
This has occurred for me with rugby, espcially super rugby and so I am winding up this blog.
There are to be no more posts- but i will probably write an article- as is the way with such things.
Thanks to all who read it; it has been a very interesting exercise and when I began I didn't think it would end with such a statment or experience of rugby agnosticism.
As to how and why I stopped being a fan, it is obvious over the course of this blog that I gained an increasing disenchantment the more I thought seriously about what I saw and what I experienced.
