Thread: Adelaide Soccer Roits

  1. #1

    Default Adelaide Soccer Roits

    It has just shown this on the news from late nights game.
    It was after the game that the trouble started and the cops looked like they had their hands full.
    So I took notice to see if our son was involved as he is a cop there.

    As I have got older the more I have come to dislike the game but this is a little too harsh as the actual game is a quite a skilled game. I know as a kid I couldn't kick that round ball to anyone.

    This game is being thrown into the gutter by the ones who actually love the game. Their small minds think what they do is real tough. I sops 10 men doing their best to beat up on one man is tough.
    I think not. This is a pure and simple mob mentality. And it gathereds pace as it rolls along.

    I have made a promise to myself many years ago to have nothing to do with this sport. And this goes as far as not to buy a raffle ticket that helps a soccer club get more things. no way will I ever give once cent to any soccer thing again and this has just cemented it more.

    Its not soccer thats to blame. Its the fans. The fans or even the club should suffer not the game. I'm a league and union man through and through but i did play the game as a kid and now my 10 year old plays it. We dont have any of this crap going on in anyway shape or form and thats the entire Fraser Coast. I'll support the game but i do know what you mean about these tossers giving the game a bad name.
    This same thing happened with the Canterbury Bulldogs a few years ago and the club took huge steps to clean it up and have done very well.
    Maybe these soccer clubs could learn a thing or two from the doggies.(Cant believe i just gave the doggies a rap. I hate em with a passion.)

    My inlaws went to england many moons ago and while there they went to a game.
    And I think something happened there but at that same weekend of game was a riot also and this took the news.
    I think the game he saw a wall fell and it got little to no reports about it as the riot took over the news.
    Like I have said this is a skilled game I know for one I could never paly even as a kid.
    But over the years this game or the fans to be blunter are killing that game.
    Who the hell needs to take flares to a game.
    Come on gate Keeper open their bags and take them away.
    I see no need for this to happen I understand that their is pride in your team but not to this extent. I know I will never understand it.

    Yeah, the poms are shockers for it.
    Your right, i see no reason for flares and why they dont search these thugs at the gate.
    It seems to be a problem every soccer playing nation has and now it's happening here.
    A year or so ago tennis even had it's fair share of this type of crap. Shame really as it takes the attention away from what is a very skillfull game to play.

    Seems crazy alright, your team looses big deal, umpire makes a ruling not in your teams favour big deal. Its like little kids throwing a tantrum and chucking and kicking over stuff because they didn't get their way lol.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    The wife uncle also told us if anyone gives someone their membership card to anyone just so they can get into a game. And if this person is caught cause trouble. The person holding the card will have a life ban on them and the same goes for the owner of the membership.
    This was bought in as the violence had risen real quick and it was only a few that went to the games to fight and not to watch a game of soccer. I don't know if this is still in place though.

    If anyone goes to a game with a large bag I would tell the gamekeepers to open it.
    If they find stuff in it they should take it from them and call the police.
    Then if they are a member with a membership card this should be taken from them and this ban of about 5 year should be set in place.
    If caught at a game in that time then they should lose any right to be at a game fore ever.

    This is a trend in sports where so called grown men think that it is their rights to fight. And some of this is over the country of birth even if they have never set foot on it. They hold deep pride over their home country, and I can understand this.
    But we are in AUstralia and if you want to fight at a game join the UFC and see how well you go at that is my answer.

    I heard that the Adelaide United coach managed to offend most everyone by suggesting that his team "raped" the Melbourne side.

    You can see where the crowd get it from. With leaders like that, you need to have a lobotomy to participate.

    But then if you looked at an old player from Melbourne, he was what you would have to call a tool.
    He provoked so many but thought it was okay until it was handed out to him. What an idiot he was, I for was was happy to see the poor excuse retire.
    And this can't just be said of this game either.

    Just this year we had Malhouse slander a Saints player by calling him a rapist. And this set off the player and a few others. So no sports is a clean skin.
    Sports in general has to clean up its act.

    i cant explain the love us English have for the game, i'd go as far to say we are the most passionate when it comes to football in europe and probably the world, with the Italians and surrounding nations close at our heels! Hooliganism is everywhere in England especially the cities, ESPECIALLY london! where people spark up as their order at maccas came to them wrong! Its how it is in England.

    And this sort of thing should be stamped out here right now, before it does get too way out of hand.
    Any person that is found at a sports and shows to be there for only the reason to fight should be thrown out and have a life ban on them.
    And this life ban may not hurt them now but it will once they have kids playing the sports and they can't go to watch.
