    Hey David, doesn't look like all those mummies with the little kiddies that were put off watching RL by big, bad Manly had much of an impact on the crowd at tonight's match at Newcastle, which is a sell out.

    We can only hope, but seriously when the paramedic spoke to the ref I'm sure he said "deceased man" somewhere in there

    What someone died?

    in the DT.

    "There was at least as much drama off the field as on it, with play stopped when an ambulance was required for a patron during the second half and police leading away two fans after a fight broke out in the western concourse."

    Blame Manly for the fight ofcourse. Was this a separate incident?

    what an amazing stadium, I reckon we could get 30 thousand against some Sydney teams. Knights will be a force in a few years.

    Darren would only bring his family if there was a total swearing, drinking and good fun ban.

    happy with the no swearing and drinking ban for sure but doubt it would happen!! Fun is definitely okay. Shame the few drinkers who can't handle their beers ruin it for the responsible drinkers.

    I don't want my wife and 3-5 year old girls around the filth that comes out of many mouths. It's a shame that some resort to filthy language in daily language all the time. Society has just gone downwards and the many children I run into sum up their parents.

    How many weeks do you think the judiciary will give the fighters? What was their grading?[hr]
    Gallop said there was no place for biff in this game. The spectators should be banned, right David?

    In my personal opinion I think they should be. Banter between supporters verbally is ok. Fighting, throwing things, anything of a violent nature where someone could get hurt I believe to be criminal and should be punished accordingly.

    If fights break out in grounds usually the clubs will deal with it and ban them from the ground for a period of time. Whether this can be policed is a different matter altogether.

    There was a rumour of fans that have been banned permanently from all NRL games for violent behaviour. It has to get pretty bad for this to happen but sometimes it does get out of control and the club will usually get involved. Those people at Newcastle might get a slap on the wrist but I guess it depends on how bad the situation was.
