Unity, not RBB an­ar­chy

The Cairns Post - - SPORT -

While the A-League needs all the fan­fare it can get at the mo­ment (maybe that says some­thing about the foot­ball), should the anti-es­tab­lish­ment RBB re­ally have more power? Be­fore it’s con­sid­ered, surely there needs to be some sort of unity be­tween the RBB and the gov­ern­ing body.

Un­til they stop turn­ing up at matches with “F*** FFA” on shirts and ban­ners, then cry­ing poor, I don’t think they need any more free­dom of ex­pres­sion.

I’M all for shows of pas­sion from fans at sport­ing events but when the A-League’s most vo­cal group is also the most an­ar­chic, it’s hard to feel sympathy for them.

This week our res­i­dent A-League ex­pert Zenon Car­avella was sup­port­ive of the no­tion of the FFA look­ing at al­low­ing flares at foot­ball matches and giv­ing Western Syd­ney Wan­der­ers’ Red & Black Bloc (RBB) some lee­way to cre­ate at­mos­phere at games.
