If anybody is guilty of violence/threatening behaviour then kick them out for good. And before Sydney branch (an outdated model) and Soccer NSW wimp out on appeal - let the media know GDSFA are taking a stance against violence so that we don't have the ridiculous situation of teams winning appeals and playing again.
Stan and The Captain will never achieve Oko status.
Was talking to a bloke on the train the other day about a Swans 2005 GF against who I can't remember. He said before the game in the pub both supporters were in the pub with no issues and after the game finished the opposition supporters walk up and shook hands. I asked was there any issues, he said obsolutely none and that's why he now follows AFL, pick up your act Granville or our the beautiful game will be all but a memory which will only be about the grubs that are destroying it.
Was chatting with some experienced soccer people yesterday about this (and refs being abused).
Why is it that AFL and Rugby have no major issues like this?
Ill assume you mean rugby as in union, as there have been quite a few well publicized total horror stories from league in the last couple years. It also happens plenty of times in the two you mention, people just don't always hear about it
you may want to re read the draw, the other team in the draw for round 7 at Bathurst St in 16/3's was Merrylands, NOT Auburn, some people are so quick to think the worst, funnily enough whenever my son is at either Progress or Webb's he get's treated very well by all concerned
why thank you refsdad for pointing out my mistake. ...but perhaps you can also re read my post. I cast no aspersions. I simply asked who got locked in the dressing room. You obviously thought the worst though.
no, I don't think the worse, as I said, my son always get's treated with respect at either Auburn and we never have trouble when they visit us, unlike some other club's from other area's in the association who seem to have more of an attitude problem than is necessary, but it is unfortunate and by all account's it was a pretty bad weekend all round, maybe the 7 week itch, who know's, but as shagger said, hopefully the association will act quickly and ruthessly to eradicate these problem teams, after all when it's all said and done, we are playing park soccer, hopefully for fun but when you see some people at some parks it does make you wonder.......................

Good topic Shagger.
refsdad, Taking a stance on violence. The Association took a stance last season and dished out some hefty fines and suspensions from a PL incident. 9 months and numerous appeals later, charged players and team are still participating with the final appeal now before the governing body, FFA. Go figure.?
no problems, we were at Progress again today and as usual the lads at Auburn are always friendly and polite, and I think appreciatitive of having ref's whereas ther are other places who seem to think it is their right but they don't display it by their behaviour towards ref's, particularly young ones.
442, well in days gone by the reasons appeals have been won is because GDSFA haven't necessarily dotted all their I's and crossed their t's properly, however with the new GPT chairperson and his background that may change. Unfortunately, and I have seen it in my line of work as well, if you don't get it right technicalities will get you every time

pathetic if that is true!! Any team from anywhere should be kicked out of the comp straight away with this type of behaviour. to chase people and have them have to lock themselves in a changeroom for fear of their safety is surely enough for a team to be punted. If this is the case the Granville are kidding themselves.
