What a great article from Lee Payne regarding regular away Norwich City supporters degrading those that don't travel all over the country supporting the Canaries.

Many issues come into play here such as finance, work situations and lifestyle choices, etc.

I don't travel to away games but having purchased shares from the club when there was a very real danger that the club could fold I consider myself to be as good a supporter as those that travelled to Middlesbrough on a Tuesday evening and it's very sad that all of this sniping and back biting is taking place between fans, mostly on Twitter.

MORE: 'Home or away fan, if you support Norwich City then we are one and the same,' says Lee PayneI noticed that many of the Norwich fans at Middlesbrough were not wearing the latest team strip and how many of them were shareholders I'm not sure but does this make them less supporters than those that were?

Of course not so grow up guys and well done to Lee Payne for making some great points. One City Strong.
