Let me be very clear up front, it is not possible to overplay the threat A-League fans present to not only Australia but the entire world.
While our politicians foolishly focus on perceived security threats such as ISIS and the escalating tensions between Russia and Turkey, A-League fans are lighting flares across our great nation with gay abandon.
The recent release of a list of 198 fans banned from A-League games, shows Australia is being overrun by soccer hooligans, intent on destroying our way of life and plunging us into a post-apocalyptic world that makes The Walking Dead look like a paradise of heart breaking beauty.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, Melbourne Victory fans and Western Sydney Wanderers fans staged mass walkouts from their matches last weekend as a protest against a lack of an appeal process for banned fans.
It led to both games suddenly having the attendance and atmosphere of a GWS Giants’ game.
As a Melbourne Football Club supporter, I would usually support anyone’s right to walk out of a game but these A-League fans are not like AFL fans, they’re all dangerous. Every single one.
They have no right to justice. When Alan Jones likened them to terrorist all I could think is, ‘Alan, does that go far enough?’
It’s typical of Alan, always trying to calm the situation and adopt a nuanced position but frankly this isn’t the time.
This stuff never happens in other sports. Name one incidence of bad crowd behaviour at a cricket One Day International.
OK, fair point, name five of them then.
Wow, so quick with the response but a lot of those incidences involved white guys.
As for other codes, NRL fans have never caused a disturbance and I am completely unaware of any instance of an AFL fan recently being sent to prison for eight months for punching a woman in the face, just as a hypothetical example.
To me the answer is simple. We need to ban soccer in Australia and deport anyone who likes it.
Except for Tim Cahill, he’s a true Aussie hero.
