Not getting involved in the childish arguments, but it is always disappointing to see trouble in or around a ground. One point I will make is that I have also seen trouble at Grand Finals involving Wigan v Bradford and Saints v Leeds. Unfortunately there will always be blokes who can't handle their beer.
I actually thought the stewards were pretty poor, as you could see it was going to go off for about 5minutes. The fans were stood up watching it escalate, and only a few security blokes went down. Only a few blokes actually involved in the fight, but then you obviously get other people being knocked over, which is pretty disappointing as it could have happened in our corner, where I was stood with my mum and dad and my mate had his toddlers, and that's not good if innocent people are getting caught up in it.
I'd just like to stress the point that I was at the GF when there was trouble and it was Saints fans fighting Saints fans. I've been to many games over the years regular and finals and I'm not sayig Saint fans don't cause fights, but from my experience of what I've seen with my own eyes Saints fans tend to annoy each other much more than the opposition. You can never please all Saints fans all of the time, even when winning 100-0 or lossing 100-0 Saints idiots can usually fine something to moan about with each other.
Age is no restriction either.
I was there for the new stadium announcement at Knowsley road, the chairman was announcing it to the ground, (but facing the popular side). The news was pretty much welcomed by all except the one idiot about 40-50 years old who kept shouting out what about us, like an insane numpty. I think he was quiet put out that the chairman was announcing it with his back to him and did not acknowledge him personnally. lol.
I'm sure had I tod him to shut it and get on board he would have felt no quarms about venting his frustration in my direction. Yep some people it's beer, but for others even a positive announcement can cause them pain some people just like being miserable and will find any excuse to be offended and have an arguement or a fight.
