Quoted from GrimRob
Is it really worth having dozens of police at a football match watching out to see if anyone makes the male masturbator sign (or similar)? Wouldn't they be better off looking for shoplifters or drug dealers who perpetrate crimes with a far greater social cost than a gesture between two drunken supporters separated by a stand?

I am not saying it is not a crime, simply that most reported crimes are never solved. I've always suspected the police can make their own figures look better by finding their own minor "crimes" to balance out some of the unsolved ones. Let's say there are 10 shoplifting incidents in the town centre on a Saturday afternoon. The police would do well to even solve 2 of these, so 20% success rate. On the other hand then can arrest 5 D&D fans and 5 for gestures and BINGO they can have a 50% success rate while forgetting about all those awkward shoplifters, many of whom are professional thieves and good at what they do, as opposed to the easy pickings at the match.


And in all likelihood there will be "safety" cameras taking nice photos of you driving on roads where you're unsure as to where you are travelling to and from so a few miles over the limit and Bob's your uncle for the boys in blue.

It's a Grimsby thing, a bit like a Glasgow kiss, a punch to the chops is just to test how strong your jaw is, other clubs strip fans and feel them up.



Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

I honestly think some people regard this as a badge of honour, top of the league in banning orders is something to be ashamed of.

Our failing police force seem to view it more a badge of honour imo I mean let’s face it in crime statistics Humberside police finish bottom on virtually everything,so at least their good at this

Due to us having a poor reputation, being stuck out on a limb and basically a run down ground, us this why some clubs away support is quite poor at BP.

Despite the hysteria surrounding this, I can't recall ever seeing a punch landed on anyone in 30 years of supporting Grimsby. Just shows how under control the British are when you can be in real trouble for accidentally jabbing someone with an inflatable shark, whilst meanwhile in France motorways are blocked and fires are burning because they aren't happy with the price of diesel.

The only time I have seen punches thrown in over 63 years was in the Ponny when away fans had come in looking for trouble, they always left wishing they had not bothered.

At away games we have had  bricks, coins and urine thrown at us but I never saw any police arrest any of their supporters.

The club have to take their share of the blame for some incidents for how they were badly handled.
Mansfield at home - larger than average Mansfield following with known element.Anyone who witnessed the 80's and 90's knows you either hold them back and let the home fans disperse or let the away fans out Harrington St . Someone made the decision to let them out with the home fans - no excuses ,they shouldn't fight but it was a cocktail for disaster.
Port Vale home - Port Vale with a much larger than normal travelling element plus a German hooligan contingent drinking in Cleethorpes all morning and no extra police in the ground leads to Vale fans overpowering the exposed stewards and trying to storm the home end. Some Town fans fought back and look to be getting banning orders but if they had broken into the lower then the outcome could've been perhaps quite a lot worse.

Really? Not heard that before. Why would they come all the way here? See NEL as a soft touch?

Actually the gentleman didn't actually accidentally jab someone he belted the steward several times, it was clearly seen on the TV footage.
