Anyone caught with or using a smoke bomb/flare etc in a football ground should be banned for life from all sporting venues as well as any other sentence the court deems fit to give. Simple they are illegal, dangerous and a health hazard.


If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

Quoted from fishyrich
The more youth that go the better. When they first started travelling i thought they were all muppets and the novelty would wear off. To be fair to them, there's more and more each week, the atmosphere is superb - keep it up!!!

As for the smoke bombs, probably best not throwing them but in the stand on Saturday was awesome. If you don't like it, don't sit near them

UTM


Last sentence there is the problem. We weren't sat near them they were at the back we were right at the front, they came to the front when the penalty was awarded and promptly set one off under Son Ofs feet, lucky he did not see which @rse set it off as he would have been straight over the wall with a 12 foot drop onto the concrete below as far as we were concerned

The lads create a great atmosphere (Alferton away last season was really good) but do agree they need to be more careful where/when smoke bombs are set off. Alferton open terrace with small tin shed at back no issue but covered stands like Wrexham not good. Certainly dont want to discourage them from going to games without them the atmosphere would be flat just a bit more awareness for others around them.

My source tells me the club are trying to identify anyone who lets off a smoke bomb especially at away games and if caught I would expect a lengthy ban.

Having had one land at my feet whilst standing with an 8yr old I can say that anyone throwing them is an irresponsible idiot! I just don't see the connection between smoke bombs and supporting a football team. Sing, chant and bang the damn drum  but please no smoke bombs.

We aren't talking the firework code here. There is no justification for letting them off at all. End of.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

I presume any form of pyrotechnics are banned from football grounds, health and safety risk.

It's upto Wrexham and their Police if they wish to use CCTV to catch anyone, sames goes for any other teams and fans.

Article here that mentions Liverpool would ban fans who do it home or away >> [url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2315162/Liverpool-warn-fans-expect-bans-set-smoke-bombs.html]http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2315162/Liverpool-warn-fans-expect-bans-set-smoke-bombs.html[/url]

Have to agree with the majority of folks. I tend to go to more away games than home games because I live nowhere near Grimsby, and these lads seem to be at most games I end up going to. I like the fact they're passionate and make a bit of noise and it's great to see that kind of support but really wish they'd sack off the smoke bombs. They're just a crap idea all round. They give us a bad reputation, they urine everyone off, and they risk injuring themselves.

Anyone remotely condoning this type of behaviour would do well to remember what happened at Valley Parade.

Full marks to them when you consider we have been crap for their entire lifetime. The noise can only inspire the players. Even the youtube vidoes come close to actually raising the hairs on the back of your neck
