Security Guard Tackles Drunk Fan…With Head.

As the headline describes this is exactly what should happen to every attention seeking inebriated moron who strips half naked and takes to a pitch to interrupt any sport. No tazers, no tear gas, no batons just a good old dose of unecesarry roughness. Talent scouts should be trying to find out the name of that college security gaurd, although something tells us it may be David Dunn.

Mark McGhee Is A Comedy Genius.

The McGhee Facepalm.

Troubled Aberdeen Football Club manager Mark McGhee faced the nation’s press earlier today to confirm that he would be staying on in the job and that his decision isn’t about the money, it’s more down to an issue of loyalty to the club that he…blah, blah, blah and other similar fartblossom mince. But he did unintentionally crack one of the funniest jokes this month.

He said: “It would have been an easy option for me to decide I’d had enough of this. I’ve got a contract and that’s worth money to me.
“I could have taken that and been gone and be sitting with my feet up in Brighton and maybe this weekend fly off to Vegas to my brother-in-law’s for a couple of weeks and wonder how Aberdeen were getting on back home.
“But that never entered my mind.”

We think it just did Mark.

Canadian Football Team Smash!

Apparently the story behind this video is the team in orange, from Montreal, took to the stands and started trading punches with the rival team’s fans from Ontario after a Football Conference semi-final game . The team allege that they had endured racial slurs during the game from the fans and had been pelted with beer bottles.

As you will see there is no security present and the clash is allowed to rumble on for far too long. Resulting in what appears to be a serious injury at the 1.18 mark, where a fan wearing a red jersey is sucker punched and then stamped on by the players. What’s even more amazing is that local police have since confirmed that no charges will be brought.

We’ve played and continue to play team sports here at HMS Friday and we’ve always been instructed to conduct ourselves on the pitch with disciplined reserve. If events happen, which you feel strongly about, then you can file an official complaint or report after a match. The coaching staff  look like they have a nightmare job on their hands with this bunch who may have already damaged their future prospects in the game irreparably.

An Open Love Letter To Mr Hicks

Following the recent developments, or non-developments to be more accurate, at Liverpool football club through US owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett it’s easy to understand why so many Liverpool fans are at boiling point. Here’s a protest video featuring some familiar faces addressing Mr Hicks directly and in no uncertain terms. The only thing which annoys us here at HMS Friday is that it invariably takes an issue like football to get this much passion from people in the UK.
