  1. Im probably going to get absolute pelters for this but here goes. In my opinion this subject is getting rather tiresome. I have travelled to the majority of away games this season and love nothing more than following my team all over the country. I enjoy everthing about it. The trip down and back on the train, pre match drinks and getting the craic with my mates. But primarily im there to watch the football and support my team. Thats what it is all about. We are all down there to watch the game of football. Now I totally agree with everyone else that some of the stewarding is ridiculous

  2. Brave post. Your correct. I've never been chucked out, and never will. I can manage it. One steward, 'touches' (snigger) one fan. Everyone goes on about what the steward did wrong. Why is everyone kidding themselves? Your supposed to sit. That's the rules. The steward was quite clearly a mouth breather, you could tell because he's fat and wearing an orange jacket with 'Event Security' on the back. Do what you want, like anything you want, but please face up to the consequences of your actions. When I drink before a game, I go, knowing that no matter how much I don't like the rule, t

  3. What would this achieve? i go to the games to follow and cheer on caley, bad stewarding has nothing to do with following my team.

  4. Great post from Caleytillidie. The thing is, rules is rules and where they are silly rules you need to apply a bit of commonsense in judging how far you can go in breaking the rules. Where stewards are inflexible, rude and aggressive, then it is best to sit down and watch the game. Goading them and getting thrown out is not clever. Having said that there have clearly been times where the behaviour of the stewards is worse than that of the fans they are dealing with and if they are out of order it is perfectly legitimate to complain. But for me, the problem is not so much the stewards

  8. Toronto FC (and MLS) allows standing in "designated supporters sections". Basically for TFC that's the whole of the South Stand, 1 section in the main stand, and as of this year the North Stand as well (not sure if its all or just part). They also turn a bit of a blind eye to standing in sections of the main stand and east stand adjoining the defined supporters sections. Other sections (normal seats) have a no standing policy that is enforced. I have had a seat in the South Stand for each of the last 4 seasons and will be there again for Season 5 ..... In all 5 seasons, I dont think I have act

  9. I kinda got the impression when Dundee went into Administration that they (Dundee FC) felt it was unnecessary and forced upon them by HMRC...in other words, they felt they had the debt under control. If that was the case then I wouldn't have expected to see so many of the smaller debts and it only serves as a sign that things were far more desperate than they made out. Granted, we don't know how old these debts are or how long they have been running....many could be 30 day credit agreements from suppliers, but if they are then it indicates that even with administration pending they were cont

  10. This is the main problem, we're not allowed to stand. Does it not go back to the Taylor report and Hillsborough? I think it's like our laws on Marley's special herb where, depending on the officer who catches you (and what music their into), you will get treated differently, even though it's against the rules all the same. My mate told me this, I wouldn't know for sure though..... As I've pointed out numerous times, "you must sit" is an SPL directive, not law. You just have to go to Murrayfield for a Rugby Match or to a stadium concert to see thousands of people standing without issu

  11. Most of the time that I was standing up was because the guy in front of me was standing up.I'm certainly not going to pay ?20 to sit down and look at the back of jacket...I can do that at home for nothing and not spend most of the day traveling to do it either. Stewards do get dog abuse from some fans but they shouldn't react the way they did. Those kinds of actions can cause trouble. When taking on a job like you have to be very thick skinned indeed and if you aren't you shouldn't be in the job.

  12. Im guessing it's the same wee **** that is always at St. Mirren and Morton with his clipboard thinking he is so important standing at the bottom of the stand pointing at people to be thrown out;. He is an arse of the highest order. Everyone should email St. Mirren about this. It has become beyond a joke and the over aggressive stewarding only creates problems and raises tensions. At Hearts the stewards stand at the bottom of the stand and just leave the fans to have a good time and there is never a problem and it is viewed by most as the best away day. This used to be the case at Hibs as

  13. TheKnowledge, yer post sure made me laugh out loud and of course you are correct in that the heavy handed authoritarian stewards will always win out,hugely frustrating as it is and happens everywhere to one degree or another, our own fine examples on both sides of Sandeman street being amongst the worst in the country and I watched Raith fans getting ejected for enjoying themselves and trying to create an atmosphere on Saturday. I consider myself law abiding,with self control and as such I used to go along and watch quite a lot of games as a neutral but coupled with cost, an unsavoury incide

  15. County have nosedived spectacularly since their heady days of last season. Thrashing us early in the season, running us close before wilting and a great Scottish Cup run, it's all taken it's toll on the poor wee souls' They really are a mess at the moment, and if they are not careful, the next division down beckons.

  16. Great Post Sir and I agree with you in its entirety so you have been green dotted Can't help but think i'd be looking at a serious amount of red if it had been my post though, but thats not the issue All seater stadia are here to stay within top flight football in the UK and being a fan who endured outdated and dangerous grounds in the 80's and early 90's i welcome watching my football in modern safer environments and if that means sitting for the majority of the game well so be it One thing I will say though is that every time this sort of thread raises its head, IHE appears to h

  17. Who are the SPL? They are the directors of every member club of that league. These are the people who need to be lobbyed to make change. Maybe the time has come to start that lobbying. Maybe the time has come for all fans of all clubs to get together and show protest at a rule that only applies in one league in Scotland. Greater stadiums with greater crowds do not have these problems.

  18. I though that I would start off yet another thread - mainly becos I wanted to respond to davie and make my own statement but also co the Match thread should be about on the pitch comments only. davie posted: Thanks for this. It was my son who was ejected from the ground after being assaulted by that steward. What he actually said was that he was "sick of being treated like a f*cking animal" by said steward who then told him "don't f*cking swear at me". This man kicked him in the left shin, kinda sore when he was wearing steel toe caps. Boy was then hauled out by the neck. He spoke to

    • Raith Rovers -V- Inverness CT - Postponed
      Season hanging by a thread.

      Match Postponed due to covid outbreak at Raith Rovers: Saturday’s Scottish Championship match between Raith Rovers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Stark’s Park has been postponed after Raith Rovers informed the SPFL that they could not fulfil the fixture.

      It barely seems justified or acceptable that I should be writing about a bunch of guys kicking a bag of wind around a frozen park in the middle of winter, but I suppose we need something to take our minds off the ongoing battle against coronavirus that has brought this and other countries to it's knees. We are not alone in this struggle, it's threatening the very existence of mankind so let's all try and do our bit to get back to some form of normality and do as we are asked. In the darkest days on this planet, world wars saw millions of people asked to go out and save our country by fighting the enemy, lying in muddy trenches, frozen, soaking and terrified, going to foreign lands, being apart from our families and the ones we love. Today, we are being asked to stay inside our own houses and wash our hands with soap and water. It's a small sacrifice, but one that is just as important as the previous battles that have killed millions around the world. I hope we can all help and ease the burdens on our Doctors, nurses, NHS, essential retailers and workers who are keeping the country going. So, over to you and let's beat the enemy you can't see.

      Sad news released by the club today is that Club Historian Ian Broadfoot has passed away at the age of 73 after taking ill around Boxing Day.

      Ian was a wealth of knowledge for us here at Caley Thistle Online as we made our way into the Leagues and his statistics were the basis for our own database. His knwledge of all things ICTFC were the background behing his wonderful book that was published recently, Milestones and Memories.

      Condolences to Ian's family and friends and the wider Caley Jags family. RIP Ian.

    • Arbroath -V- Inverness CT ***GAME OFF***
      We first foot the Smokies on the 2nd of January 2021. It's a New Year, but unfortunately the same old shit as it's a covid restricted game with no fans allowed. The game kicks-off at 3:00pm on Saturday with Arbroath stuck at the foot of the table and Inverness in seventh place. Maybe more appropriate to take a roll of ShitBegone instead of a lump of coal!

    • Inverness CT 1-1 Dunfermline - Report
      What's the Storey, Miles Glory: Inverness fell behind after twenty minutes when some pinball ended with McInroy drilling the ball home from inside the box. Sutherland was unlucky when his header crashed off the bar with the keeper beaten. Glory Glory Miles Storey scored with a stunning left foot shot high past a despairing Fon Williams to level the game with around 25 minutes left and that's how it ended, all square in the final game of 2020, a year we all want to forget. Happy New Year when it comes.
