Looks like a pathetic attempt to defend the indefensible. We must not let them get away with it.

What would have happened with the stewards if one of our female fans went to the game braless?

The statement is balderdash. The stuff about searches happened and the toilet stuff happened. In fact the reaction by the fans was a credit to them, I was stood outside the toilets (I wasn't allowed on the terrace with my chips) One female steward alongside 4 male stewards antagonised fans throughout when she was asked to leave. It was only when the fans asked for the police that it sorted itself out and the stewards were told to leave.

In the second half the same group of stewards kicked off as they were told they were stood in the way of the game. Police called and stewards taken away, AGAIN. Not a single fan that I saw had to be dealt with by the police.

What's worse is, our idiots weren't even present at the game. I visited 3 pubs before hand, all mixed fans in there, all absolutely fine with not even a hint of hostility. Stevenage had planned for a riot and when it didn't happen, decided to try to cause one themselves.

Heartening to read the thread on the Imps board. Maybe they can catch our protest bug (another symptom of Grimsbyitis   ) and run a Bras at Broadhall theme for their next (League) away day.

On a more serious note, I disagree with Jock and others who say JF shouldn't get involved. Personally I think he should be picking up the phone to his opposite numbers at other clubs (especially those ones we'll be visiting in the near future and pointing out the truth (e.g. link to that Chesterfield newspaper report on Derbyshire Police's economy with the truth). We've already seen those untruths used once to justify an over zealous 'security measures'.

Until enough people in control of football know the truth, the same thing will keep happening.

I thought we had a general election last year and no matter about the result we did not vote for a police state, but it seems they can make statements at Chesterfield that tars our support, this is how Hillsborough started, police covering up their errors. Let's have answers please, but if the Coventry debacle is anything to go by it will all be chip paper by Wednesday.

Indeed. That's why we need to keep asking questions about the Coventry shenanigans.

Might seem a long stretch from bad stewarding to a real tragedy, but once lies get passed around by the authorities and accepted as Gospel wrong decisions get taken.

The anger at the treatment of genuine law abiding town fans has been building for some time now and Stevenage was the straw that broke the camels back. We're all sick of being treat like hooligans/2nd class citizens. It's also time the club started acknowledging the fact that the overwhelming majority of us are well behaved folks who just want to follow the club we love.
