I'm no fan of the Zebras but that is harsh #1, the banner in the photos looks odd, guess you had to be there to appreciate it but not much point posing with it if you can't see it

Quoting Pathetic:
seeing the two zebra teams celebrate a summer cup win the way they did just shows how small the clubs mentality is

Why because you lost winning makes you
