Not what I have seen
so i'm be more precise. they have separate the stadium into wet and dry areas. maybe they should allocated some seating to those that want to remain quiet and other areaas for those who want to shout and swear. They could also have some areas put aside for attractive people like myself and put the ugly people into their own areas... that would make many of us happy.

Gil in meeting with Marvel Stadium manager today and will speak at press conference tomorrow.
This should be good. Nothing has changed...blah, blah, blah.
He will need a good spin to tell us nothing has happened and that meeting was about nothing. I suspect we are seeing the very start of the Gil death spin. Awesome if that is so because outside of some ignorant pc agenda they dont seem to have a lot of direction.

Unfortunately for you TD the crossover between those who don't drink and don't want swearing at the footy is going to be much higher than the crossover between those who drink and want swearing at the footy.

Like the review system, it is not the idea that is the problem but the people being used within the process.

Did anyone else see the footage of the security guy entering the field to stop two players wrestling in the GWS game. He was stopped by the third umpire. If this guy doesn't know that he shouldn't be doing that then is it any wonder someone lacking that footy knowledge can't see the difference between swearing and barracking loudly. If this wasn't a multi million dollar business it would be laughable.

I am all for getting rid of the tossers who fight or spew racist, homophobic remarks but get the right people to run the process for you....not people off the street with the afternoon off.

I didn't see that! Maybe Jeff Kennett was right about (some of) the people they have working in that position!!

I'm not sure it has anything to do with race but it sure has a lot to do with football knowledge on and off field. When you see something like that, then you can only assume there is limited training offered regards being a security person at the footy.

A caller to SEN, employed by the security company said they're employing people with no understanding of the game or people management skills.
They don't care, it's all about the cheapest labour available.
Probably links in to what Kennett said too.

Thanks for the first part as it links into why they are doing such a bad job.

As to Kennett, not having or being trained with the technical skills to do a job has nothing to do with race or how long you have been in the country. Plenty of people born in Australia who have no idea about footy culture would do an equally poor job with no training or upskilling.

I'm thinking similarly, the link to people who have newly arrived though does taint the discussion.
