This comes from a question I raised in the St Mirren thread, I thought I'd open it up to everyone else... It's a bit different now, because leaving a game is nothing more than switching the stream off (or... the stream deciding to die of it's own accord) but back in the 'before times' when you could attend games were you the sort of person who would chuck it and leave a game half way through? I'm not talking about leaving to beat the traffic (not that many teams suffer the problem of too many people leaving at once!), but literally just walking out when you've had enough? If you have left early, what game (heh, or games!) was it? Did you end up watching/listening to the rest of it on tv/radio once you had left, and when you were leaving did you fire out a salty epitaph to accurately reflect your 'disappointment' as you exited the stadium? For me? I'm a bit of a stalwart and will normally, and grimly, soak up a bad performance until the whistle blows. However, there is one time I remember when I left even before the end of the first half whistle had blown. We were playing Falkirk, in the Championship, and were 3 nil down by the half hour mark or so. We were rotten, the weather was rotten, I was in feeling rotten and I'd travelled in on my own. I never even bothered waiting to see if we'd turn it around (spoiler: we didn't) and was on the train home before the second half had even started! I never bothered following the scores on the radio, instead I just turned on some tunes and buried myself into a book, writing the day off.
