Curtailing unruly fans

2013-04-03 12:54
1. Alcohol lowers inhibitions, thereby leading to behaviour uncharacteristic of a person "of sober habits".  Since alcohol can be consumed at any number of establishments prior to the match and at the venue itself it is unlikely that behaviour will improve markedly unless stadium management instructs security to remove spectators making an ass of themselves.  The rules / standards of behaviour will have to be set very clearly and enforced strictly until we return to behaviour socially acceptable even when slightly sozzled.

2. If not 1 then  only allow Muslims to attend matches

3. Get something constructive to do for spectators who do not support booing.  Euro football fans have managed to shut down racist minorities in the spectators by some means; I guess some witty song.  Since the Newlands crowd can hardly even sing "stooormerrrssss" I suggest something as simple as hissing.  I would like to hear 30000 fans hiss at 5000 adolescents/prebubescents booing.  If it doesn't drown out the boos then we'll have to revisit the witty ditty ... but very simple so the average Stormers fan can memorise and sing it. <tongue in cheek>.

4. Keep a register of undesired fans (during swc2010 the organisers purportedly knew and would be able to prevent known soccer hooligans from getting tickets and attending matches) and refuse to admit them.  Pitching up in any foreign team jersey without a foreign passport immediately disqualifies the person from attending.
