Absolute morons, ban the lot of them.  Maybe go as far as a public flogging before the next home game.

Yes I agree. The stewards just seemed to saunter around rather than quick decisive action.

 

Doesn't bode well for the Wakefield club when they can't sort a few scrotes out.

 

Must admit the video did make me laugh after about 1m40 when the two scrawny lads pretty much had a dance with each other and threw no punches.

I assume it is now available to everyone. Sad times.

Then the club needs to hire security.

 

Ultimately that is the job they are doing, if they don't want to have to deal with crowd disorder they shouldn;t be in that job.

A very draconian view.

Indeed the club should hire professional security,it's not the first time it's happened.

Would you risk getting punched for minimum wage?

If it was my job yes. Surely if your a steward its part and parcel of the job. You know one day this could occur.

Not really - if their job involves crowd control (I genuinely don't know whether it does) the yes, they need to do whatever they have been trained to do. Of course their training may be to saunter round in a seemingly random way, but I doubt it.

 

There are loads of jobs I wouldn't do, especially not for minimum wage, but if people are doing it, they should do it properly.
