The amount of flares thrown without any condemnation has been a major problem all season. Its fine to light up a flare but throwing them is stupid and dangerous wasn't happening previously not to the scale of this season anyway. How the active supporters where able to get away with this without punishment all season is why this shitstorm happened on Saturday night. How many flares where thrown on the pitch from both active ends on Saturday? Happen earlier in the season during the Vic V WSW match and the first Melbourne Derby too as well as in the Sydney derby not to forget at fed square during the Socceroos matches. It become normal to throw flares like confetti and that always invites trouble. Someone at the APL/FA needs to come out and put a stop to it period!They were definitely banned for awhile and people kicked out.
Definitely seems that lately they’ve just become accepted
