"He said police acknowledged he was not swearing or being abusive, and when he questioned them about the apparent problem an officer replied: "Do you hear what I said? You're barracking too loud".
I posted this on the main board too, but I've sat near this guy before in the AFL reserve and he is terrifying.
Well for something like you described he should have been evicted. Did anyone contact security during that game?I posted this on the main board too, but I've sat near this guy before in the AFL reserve and he is terrifying.
At last year's Cats v Pies game he threatened to punch on with a Geelong supporting father, there with his young kids, because the father was standing up and cheering our goals on.
I've seen him punch and kick empty seats when a decision goes against the Pies.
Every time I've sat near him, people have given up their paid for seats and moved elsewhere to avoid him.
There is zero chance he was barracking quietly and respectfully like he claims...
I've seen security alerted to his behaviour and speak to him. I haven't seen him evicted before. As I said, I've seen this behaviour on multiple occasions, not just once.Well for something like you described he should have been evicted. Did anyone contact security during that game?
There's 52 weeks in a year, to which around 26 is taken up by footy.Of course Carro disappears from Footy classified when Richmond get thumped by Geelong
Notice how everyone who thinks it's their god-given right to make everyone else's day at the footy intolerable are now taking to the media to cry "poor pitiful me"? There are always nobs at the footy, some can be tolerated, others can ruin the whole experience.
Nothing will change mate.
I did my very best to restrain myself and did allright. I hope your right that nothing will change.PS Don't get too outraged, we might end up in that other "outrageous" thread.
We'd better be careful or we're at frightful risk of starting to expect civil behaviour...
