The correct word is Vomitorium but all stadiums just say vomitory. "to spew forth".

And the source of a myth that Romans had a special room for throwing up at their feasts.

They didn't. They just had exits.

 each Supervisor has 5 stands to attend (Example L1 L5).

More or less, except that you might have meant to write "vomitories", rather than "stands".

But, in general, I agree, no good moaning on an internet discussion forum. You might as well write to "The Times".

Complain to a steward, paid, or unpaid.

Stool huggers glance at as many stands as they can left and right whilst in front of a single vomitory!

"Complain to a steward, paid, or unpaid"

Once you are in your seat you will have no contact with a paid steward, only when you leave to the concourse!

I was talking to a Scottish friend yesterday who was at the game on Saturday. They were surrounded by England supporters one of which was using language that wasnt polite to abuse Scotland and the Scottish. This tyrant continued until Scotland equalised, then  he quietened down. My friend is female as were many around her but at no point did anybody say anything to this vile person about his language or racist rantings. Im sure there are many reverse situations but this sort of behaviour is out of order either way.

As you say, there are reverse situations - I was in West Stand middle by the North tryline and had to ask a Scottish supporter to stop going on about English See U Next Tuesdays (except he used the shorthand!).  Was told to F off.  Didn't bother with stewards just wished the guy well and that I hoped he enjoyed the game.  Truth is that if you put 80,000 people togther you will let some idiots in.  Combine that with alcohol and....

Been to Twickenham loads and never had this before so hope it's a one off.
