    At Rochdale away last season when we 4-0 two lads were spoken to by the police right in front of me but not arrested but it's been getting out of hand for past 18 months.

    Surely this proves the clubs are working hand-in-hand to catch these idiots.

    If they think they can get away with it because it's an away game, tough luck lads!

    What was the curfuffle at half time with the stewards?

    saw plenty of angry fans swinging punches at stewards but what triggered it?

    How many flares have been used in a football grounds per injury sustained? I'd wager it's more dangerous going for a pint in The Sun Inn Shipley than being in a stand with 100 flares. It's a complete load of cack.

    Just fainted but I agree with an Abbo post.

    I think it's the start of a new beginning.

    Perhaps we can have a safe flare area, right next to the safe standing area - with a safe smoke bomb area not far from that, for all the dolts that struggle to concentrate through 90 minutes of life.

    Difference between these stadiums most in league 2 is that we have a lot of smaller stands with low roofs so the smoke takes longer to disperse. The issue is not just the smoke but once it's finished there have been a lot of incidents (including this one) where the canister is thrown which can cause a nasty injury if it hits someone.

    Or a safe forum area, that's something I'd subscribe to.

    We do have standards, albeit very low ones.

    As long as it's safe, ie, exclusive, ie, exclusionary, ie, as long as the kids are in a galaxy far, far away from those who can watch a game of football without having to pretend they're at a Dinamo Zagreb-Hajduk Split game.

    Perhaps some of those who really get turned on by the excitement of flares, literally drool at the idea and find the football unsatisfying, could form a flare society. They could watch i-follow (save the expense and time of travel) invite like minded people round to their address and at moments of extreme boredom could let a flare off! Just think of the japes! As it would be in their own space, they could try and peer through the smoke to see the screen, or just roll around laughing thinking how cool they are (or because they are developing an extreme reaction to the smoke). In these days of home entertainment it could add a new dimension!

    Fingers crossed Bowyer was involved so he gets a banning order.

    O'Donnell looked particularly cheesed off when the flare landed, turned round and threw his arms in the air
