I prefer not having people drinking while the match is going on. I find it distracting,plus it was clear from Saturday that we still have some pathetic A*****e fans who want to cause trouble like it’s still the 70s.
It’s the people trooping in and out to get more beer or have a slash that annoy me. Mind you I don’t really like people eating and drinking next to me in the cinema, I wouldn’t say I’m tolerantYou being distracted by other people's beverage consumption is surely your problem and nobody else's!
Are you ever distracted by coffee consumption? Bovril?
It is, and presumably will remain, an offence to be drunk* in a sporting arena.
*whatever that means, can't find a formal definition
There are times when people have been on a sesh that their banter and such becomes incredibly tiring to all but a few. To be fair, some of the funniest sights at football has been seeing men struggle to walk up and down steps because of the legal and illegal substances they've consumed. But no one should be that incapable at 3pm on a Saturday
The issue with the authorities would be controlling the amount of booze people take in and managing those who've had too much, and the potential increase in stewarding costs. The binge factor would have to be looked at very carefully.
additional overview from FSF on the subject ......I can`t believe nobody picked up on this??
Long overdue or the match to re-ignite "issues"?
that would surely mean an end to "Safe Standing" being brought back, all those wet legs etc again
Surely it would be take a drink in prior to kick off and start of second half not all through the game?
