What’s our stance on vuvuzelas?
Anyone who brings one will have it inserted.
Possibly not the right thread for this but is it worth thinking about updating this? Let me firstly say that the support from the cove this season has been as good as I can remember - its energetic and loud. But some of the behaviour in the cove recently has been pretty embarrassing (I’m particularly referencing throwing shit on the field both last night and at a few other points during the season). I know often the emotion and the alcohol can get the better of us but watching on last night was incredible - there were a few times where the ball boys were having to dodge the mini flag poles. It’s a bit hypocritical to be calling other clubs trashy/classless and then to be carrying on like we do. Not sure if its just because its not shown on TV but I never see this sort of stuff from the best home ends in the world (yellow wall, The Kop etc.). Obviously we’re doing our own thing in Aus, somewhere between the more hardcore European scene and the more laid back english style, but regardless I think there’d be a lot of benefit to encouraging and supporting our team in a more respectful way. Not sure why this is but when I have been in the cove this season I’ve noticed the crowd seemed a lot younger than it used to be, so maybe one reason?
I’ve been a member since 2010 and used to sit in the cove fairly regularly but now only sit in the cove occasionally and usually am in reserved seats upstairs. Last night there was a pair of 9-10 year olds throwing shit over the edge of the balustrade who got told off by security - their response was ‘but they’re doing it’, pointing to the cove. Don’t know if this is just me becoming a grumpy old man or if others agree, just thought it was worth putting it out there.
And way to guarantee mini flags in tifos being ruled out for years to come.
