Reserve grade abandoned. I will not go into detail in this forum as I wasn't there, but have spoken to somebody who was. Needless to say it wasn't a good way to kick off round one - crazy thing is Ariana were leading at the time. The hearing is next Wednesday night. Will be a good test to see if they are fair dinkum about stamping this rubbish out of our game. I'm sure the Hills clubs will also be watching on with interest. The Dundas lads have a weekend off but will more than likely get out to watch some of the other matches.
I've seen incidents like this occur when I played in Southern Districts Premier League (and lower leagues) in the last decade. The only serious penalty for incidents like this is to kick the team out of the competition. It send a message to that team, their club, and the rest of the competition that this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable.
We're there to play sport - yes, flare-ups and push and shove happens in the heat of the game, but once the full time whistle goes and everyone walks off the pitch it should be over and done with.
Hopefully the police catch up to the instigators of this incident and the team is kicked out of the comp.

It's time for Granville to step up and protect the players in the association. There's no way I'll be playing Granville this year. We're all here for a kick around and a laugh, we don't need this kind of crap in our league, it's an absolute disgrace.
The normal result would be that they get kicked out.
I already know what will happen
The tall Granville guy and his boyz apologise and plea guilty and get a reduced minimum sentence
The Rydlemere players bashed and ko'd 2weeks for defending themselves
Both teams stood down for 2 games and no points..
Both teams penalised -100 points suspended good behaviour sentence.
So let's move on and play some football. !! Untill next week when someone else needs to go to hospital.!!!
I spoke to my team and although I want to forfeit our away rematch with them the players won't let me... If there in we play, thanks to the the wise we need the points.
Bigcat I beg to differ.
-There is no minimum sentence for hospitalising guys in car parks, and due to the fact that there were no red cards he will be free to play next week without needing to appeal. It will also be argued (as it has been in the past by Ariana when they were Lidcombe after an incident against Toongabbie in Premier League) that they have no knowledge of who the guys in the carpark were - must have been some random locals...
-The Rydalmere players will be found guilty of maliciously headbutting the fists of the guys in the car park, and in most cases the contact was made with the back of the head whilst they were not facing the people the fists belonged to which carries an extra 3 weeks. The Ariana mob accused of kicking guys on the ground will be acquitted due to the fact they were clearly gong for the ball.
-100 points suspended sentence which increases by 100 points for each offence until the fifth offence, when all points are reinstated and all catch up games are forced to be replayed due to an anomaly in the constitution.
I don't think it's a matter of forfeiting points, just a flat out refusal to play them by all clubs in the division. Your guy lost a tooth, Rydalmere had guys in hospital. Should we risk knives and guns on account of three lousy points?

Hopefully all the Superleague Clubs build a United front and don't play these dogs. Granville Association needs to grow some balls NOW and get rid of Granville Kewpies/ Arianna/ Deadshits!. You play with your mates and at the end of the game you want to go home or have a beer , not end up in hospital or dead due to thugs waiting in the car park.
If everyone gets on board, and doesnt play them, it will be a win for all of us. Put it this way... Would you think Kewpie players will hang around if they dont play every week? Really? I wouldn't. In terms of us, we dont care about those 3 points. Because we know these guys can call their boys and do this again.
As for Sunday, mightymeatus your correct. Exact words are we dont know them. They even said they didnt know no 16 in res grade. These guys are so clueless.
We need all clubs to join. If not, so be it. We all have families to go to. We were just lucky they didnt bring out weapons. Could of been very serious.
I understand with what bigcat is saying however I think every club needs to be united in this decision. Don't worry about points or where you all are on the ladder. The focus needs to be getting these thugs kicked out of the competition. Has anyone rang the president of the club and told them what is going on??
You cant let situations like this slide! you all need to be pro active and get on the front foot towards GDSFA and tell them this should NOT be tolerated. If everyone stands up and does it...im sure this disgusting team will get banned.
