Football League Alcohol Ban

Nine clubs (we're not one of them mentioned it seems) want it to be scrapped so that fans can drink their seats

https://talksport.com/football/efl/436860/alcohol-football-efl-clubs-stadium-ban-scrapped/

Sensible idea or is the current law the right one when police struggle to deal with fans anyway like what we saw @ Shrewsbury in the Play-Offs? - Not sure why this has gone in the "Fun, Jokes and Captions" section though

  • Scrap the ban. In the US, waitresses walk up and down the aisles with trays of cold beers.
  • On the coninent it’s fine if anything people chill out have a cig and a pint in there seats instead of getting up 10 mins before ht to get to the bar, coming back 5 mins late because of the q etc, i also don’t think as many people would be on the piss before the game
  • Happy to last 45 minutes without a beer, it would get annoying, the constant people squeezing back and forwards carrying a tray of beers

    Because the ground is so busy right now :smile:
  • No alcohol on sale during play would be my suggestion, you can take pint to your seat though. Or two, but your responsibility if it gets kicked over by someone on their way to the lav...

    not a bad shout this - not much more annoying than someone constantly squeezing past you to get to/from their seat while the game is on

    Although not an issue of squeezing down Charlton anytime soon :neutral:

  • Put it in the fans hands. Trial it and see what the feedback is.

    That thin piss they drink over there, doesn't qualify as beer
  • a definite NO from me
  • Never really seen the point in not allowing drinking in your seats, its not like beer is the only substance that can be thrown, i'd rather be hit with a pint of beer than a cup of Bovril!
  • the only other time i can see trouble is people are pissed up and refused to be served, 1 way you could do it is only home fans can drink in there seats and away fans have the same rules they have now.
  • People drink in the west upper in their seats. Don't even try to hide it. They were smoking weed at the Coventry game too

    We needed mind-altering medication after that home defeat.
  • had a few beers in north upper before the coke can sizes of ipa etc are v handy for this.

    It is an absurd law and would like to see it go, but maybe not quite yet. What with the Summer World Cup “craze” of chucking beer in the air and filming it whenever a goal goes in. I really don’t want to be covered in beer after the antics of a few bells chucking drinks when we’ve reduced the deficit to 2-1 away to Burton.

    Think this is what would happen, it would be like being at a gig when you get showered, you think it's cold therefore it's beer, if it's warm...Oh dear

  • Stadio Olimpico had blokes walking up and down with cold peroni's in a cooler. No need to leave the seat.

    Unless you want a decent pint... :open_mouth: :wink:
  • Bad enough with the teeny bladder afflicted fuckwits in our row already, they're all between 25 and 50 but can't last 30 minutes without making 10 people stand so they can go take a leak. The selfish wankers all go separately too, so we're up & down like yoyos. Only the eldest one (dad to youngest) ever says thank you, the other rude twats barely even turn sideways to avoid barging we saps on their way out or back in. They've all got hide like rhinos cos no amount of chuntering, or sarky barbs ever registers the slightest response. They're not deaf, if you're wondering. The prospect of those lush dweebs having access to even more fizzy piss lager is nightmarish.
    Generally, the more football fans have access to liquor the worse things always get. It might not be a problem in a 2/3 empty non-league ground with acres of empty terracing and loads of room to move about but in all seater stadia it is unworkable. One rule has to apply to all clubs in a division, so while there are all seater stadia, a blanket ban is appropriate. 'Drinker areas', like 'standing areas' in all seater grounds are half way to a compromise but would be the thin end of the wedge and the usual shitforbrain minority would fuck it up for the rest.
    An inability to last 45 minutes without imbibing more low quality booze is indicative of a serious dependency issue. "oh but there's always a queue..." blah blah grizzle grizzle - grow up and get some self respect, if you really need a drink that badly, a football ground's a terrible place, try the pub.


    Are you against the idea or not?
  • At the Oval Test match, the Sunday was really annoying as there were a group of people who KEPT taking it in turns up to go to the bar. I like a pint at the cricket, but to them the game going on seemed incidental to the drinking. Monday and Tuesday were so much better, as everyone was there to watch the cricket first.

    It baffles me why people will leave a half early to get to the bar then get back several minutes late. If you just want to go for a beer with your mates, why not just go to the pub!

    At the Luton away match, people were queuing up well before half time to get to the bar, if the half time beer really that important that you don't mind missing several minutes of the game?
