I don't think any action is required. People will naturally just stop going. I stopped going to the footy years ago, not out of any spite or boycott.. but just because it felt boring and like a waste of time. 80's/90' when I was growing up it was so much more fun.. yeah it was ruff and rugged, but that's what made it exciting. Going there now, and just looking at the crowd.. sitting there, barely moving.. only really animated when someone kicks a goal.. and even then its just a cheer... for me it's just plain boring. So I go to a game maybe once a year now, just for the heck of it... but I really don't look forward to it, have no feeling about being there.. nothing. I just feel hollow, and it feels almost like a chore going there. Watching it on TV is better for me, because if the game is a crap lock down defensive fest... I can go and do something else after the first quarter and I haven't wasted any money watching a few guys kick a ball backwards and sideways, and no dead-crowd atmosphere.
Tribalism is going to be dead and buried before we know it. I, too, use to love going each weekend knowing that the verbal barrage was going to keep us entertained for a few hours. It was a ritual, but mainly well behaved. Gil is turning it into a theatre and its embarrassing. World has gone completely mad.
Boycott is definitely on the cards here if it continues.

Blues fans boycott most games before they finish anyway.

What’s the excuse for Dogs tonight? Blues are significantly younger.
Just catching up on the thread and noticed this comment. Not sure why you think the blues were significantly younger, they had an older average age of 24.86 compared to 24.60 and 148 more games experience. One of the reasons Bolton probably had to go was that he kept talking about green shoots when his list wasn't really that young.

“McLean one of the best at drawing those frees”

Almost like he intentionally tries to get hit high. Almost like... he lowers himself toward the tacklers arm...
Rather than the Big Footy site should be the ‘big sooks’. Never come across so many cry babies. Trust me God is too busy to be ‘picking’ on your football club.
