Police, Security & Supporter Discussion Part 2

Recommended Posts

Hey Jess, 

I had the same issue at a Bulldogs game years ago, like around 2007 I think. We had season memberships in Category 1 and we sit a few rows behind from the bench, while watching the game, it started pissed down heavily and because the seats behind us were empty, a lot of the members decided to move up to get undercover and then suddenly someone from the stadium management told everyone to stop and get back to their seats or else they will be kicked out and have their memberships stripped off them. People were arguing with her and she was pretty much standing her ground and told the members to get back to their seats.

We members complained to both the club and Telstra Stadium back then and we didn't get any form of formal apology or anything like that from the both of them that they were both stating they have rules and policies in place about seating arrangements at Telstra Stadium especially in Cat 1 seats.

We tried arguing again and we weren't getting anywhere with both of them. Bulldogs club management back then were horrible at dealing with fans and members when it comes to gameday issues and its not surprising that the current WSW management are doing the same thing.

It doesn't surprise me that ANZ stadium have given you that same generic response to begin with and the same that guy has unnecessarily stressed you out over something that should have been dealt with at the ground.

Seeing stuff like this makes me angry 

FFS the guy is like 75 years old, they still need to manhandle him and make him sit on the ground?

****s.

Barangaroo has developed a reputation for a very heavy handed security presence (moving on people and hassling the general public), so I am not surprised the cops are joining in. Got to keep the wealthy from the scum.

Yep.

This is the same guy who won a court action against the police for offensive behaviour. His crime was a sign that read......

I know, he's a Sydney institution (he used to be a frequent visitor out the front of WSW games in the early seasons). My partner works in Barangaroo and she saw his sign today. It said: Smile Cvnt, Why Cvnt? This time the cops would argue it is offensive language, and because it isn't talking about someone specific (i.e. Abbott) I think they'll be able to charge him and get away with it (even though it's a bullshit decision).

Poor Danny, hes generally had a pretty good relationship with lots of nsw police. Someone attached to the current nsw govt with a relationship with the barangaroo casino rort had a word in the nswpol ear. Good bloke with a harmless message, poor form by all involved.

I thought he won that case and the c word wasn't considered offensive by the Courts (you need to consider context).

It wasn't considered offensive to call a politician a cvnt, but using the word in general use MAY be considered offensive.

and yet we can have nutbags spouting all sorts of vitriol (both left and right) at a Rally in St Kilda but that is all ok under freedom of speech

It is a sad indictment on modern Sydney that someone like this can be treated with such unnecessary force. Ok I guess he is deliberately using offensive language in a public place - so why not just take the sign off him? 

I guess they have to keep the place sanitized so Jimmy Packer’s temple of mammon can be built and not offend wealthy gamblers when they turn up. God forbid anyone be challenged to think......

Too many jobs in this city depend on banking, finance, property, insurance and gambling. I guess it’s not likely to change but the rise of jobs that have little social benefit or actually create social harm can’t help with a cohesive and compassionate society.

Ok rant over.....RBB sign #Justice for Danny at next game?

If Danny had a swastika painted on his sign, he would have had right wing liberal MPs fly in for a photo op.

Instead he had a swear word so he got arrested. 

....and he was next to luxury housing (=anything east of Auburn for most of us (Springwood for me lol) )

Causing trouble no doubt and giving us a bad name on behalf of his sky blue overlords.

Danny Lim was a councillor way back for Strathfield I believe - that’s more Western Sydney than ESFC right? Plus the guy is ethnic

Another brawl at the Adelaide oval last night. This time at the family friendly big bash. Imagine the outrage if it was an Adelaide United game that these incidents kept occurring at...

Apparently,  Brisbane Roar are no longer going to facilitate active support after Roar staff were abused verbally.

Reading up on it, apparently the current (well, ex now) leaders of the active support group weren't liked by the club, and apparently not liked much among the rest of the active supporters.. so they've taken it as an excuse to get rid of them.

Unfortunately 'active' support is seen as a necessary evil by A-league club admin. One is about passion the other counting beans. Never the twain shall meet.
