To whom was he referring to when he said that, was it all of us or just the ones that have been banned . ?

Didn't hear him Pete...could have been tarring us all with the same brush but that would have been well out of order

Most of us just love Town and even when pushed to the limit can keep the lid on things even when those around us are letting loose on opposing fans / pitch side ads etc

Having said that the first thing someone asked me when I got in to work this morning (on RH's favoured side of the river)...are you one of those Grimsby thugs I heard mentioned this morning?

Who says mud doesn't stick...though being over here, they should all know about mud!

To describe an entire fanbase like that is hilariously naive and narrow-minded for a 'professional' broadcaster. Nevermind ey, he's always been a pillock.

Just seen this crop up on Twitter...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-humber-29360658?utm_source=BBC+Sport&utm_medium=twitter


Grimsby Town had 10 fans banned last season, according to the latest Home Office figures.

The Football Conference National Division club had an average home crowd of 3,500.

In comparison, Premier League side Hull City had five supporters banned, with an average of more than 24,000 home fans

Yah booh sucks

Although a higher proportion than Hull, 10 fans of an average 3,500 is slightly under 0.3% of our currently active fanbase, and significantly less than that in proportion to our overall fanbase.

It's hardly a proportion that justifies singling out GTFC as a club with a problem fanbase. It still leaves 3,490 people who have not recieved banning orders.

Even if we have a slightly higher proportion of banning orders than some other clubs, 0.3% is barely worth a story to be honest. Reckon I could take a sample of 3,500 people in most neighbourhoods, most organisations etc. and find 10 with recent criminal records, at the very least.

Some will be offended but I rarely get compliments like that. Thanks Burnsy!

It'll be higher than that at the organisation Burnsy works for!

There were TEN new banning orders for GTFC but only two arrests for violent disorder!


Probably all for Scunny. What is funny is that Nick Dale thinks that using a programme with the local Youth Offending Service to tackle the problem will do the trick. Preventing trouble before it even starts would be a good start.
