Yeah, watch everyone cover their mouths and the rousing rendition of coughing & spluttering really makes the the place a fortress..!

Especially when the elderly, disabled and juvenile supporters surge to the exits - it’s like the old days on the Kop. Brilliant..!

I think it’s rather a selfish act as the person doing it clearly doesn’t know the law or take into account his fellow Supporters. What a ***

Don’t really like them - they smell horrible, obscure view and don’t add anything of use. 

Also haven’t City been warned about them before? Just brainless really but sadly no surprise.

Think some people need to get with the times. It’s nothing to do with being a snowflake it’s more having consideration for other supporters . I’m sure people would change their attitude if the club got a points deduction!

How do fans in Europe cope with multiple pyrotechnics going off at one time, yet one goes off here and everyone needs to be rushed to hospital?

Are the Europeans better built than us?

Baffling, considering that by many cultural and economic metrics, Bristol is often within the top 5 places to live in the UK, in respect of both upbringing or relocation.

In fact by many social markers, this part of the country is way ahead of other areas.

Nowt so queer as folk eh?

It’s not so much the city itself, moreso the inhabitants.

I guess living in a rustic place like Malmesbury, seeing a bit of coloured smoke can be quite exciting for you.

My son who is 9 and I were right next to it. He absolutely loved it and I thought the atmosphere improved massively. I think there are far more things in life to get in a tizz about.
 

I also thought one of the steward loved it as well as she was on her radio feeling really important looking for the culprits!!

i know we are all different but I use an inhaler, no effect with me and still loved it.

It's a bit different if you know it's coming and where it is coming from so you can stand well away from it if you have health issues

Also in many stadiums abroad you can CHOOSE to be in the area where these devices are used . Fans were affected today and had no choice in the matter 😡

So is it the use of pyro that is an issue, or the location it is being let off? 

I fail to see how a country such Norway can legally have pyro with little to no accidents reported from what I have been able to find on Norway webpages, yet here it is dreadful.

Surely Norway isn’t a country full of savages?

Completely agree Julie. When will the archaic laws that only exist in this country, be replaced by the obviously more progressive rules from Europe that you refer to.

The issue is that they are currently unlawful within a football stadium . Therefore each time one is used persons can expect to get arrested, clubs fined and some persons who are sat near may suffer

it is particularly disappointing that the area it was sat off in contains persons who already need help with breathing and I know that at least one is still suffering after the last one was set off close to that location .

Haven’t you heard, we don’t want to align with Europe’s laws?

Regardless of what people think, it’s illegal here and therefore selfish to set them off. I don’t really understand what people think it “adds” to the “atmosphere”. Personally think it looks shit

I’m fully aware of the legality’s of it,  but if we were to adopt Norway’s model which works would you personally see an issue with it?

Probably. I won’t defend them as this forum can be quite similar.

Imagine a society where police officers spent their time tackling real criminals; the tax dodgers, the polluters of the atmosphere, the bankers that crashed the economy.

Instead, one of them spends their time telling people off for using smoke bombs on a football forum.

Bonkers this world, isn't it?!

None of what you have listed is under the Old Bill’s remit is it?  That’s up to the government.  Ffs if you’re going to argue about pyros at football matches at least do it from a stable platform.

No wonder this country is ******, a large proportion of it appears to be inhabited by imbeciles.

If you feel that strongly about it, set one off at the next home game.......but don’t go into hiding.

I would need see more evidence of injuries reported and effects on others before I could offer an opinion . I have seen some horrible burns and breathing problems over the years through smoke grenades, that is the key issue for me .

I also respond to 999 calls, deal with Other major crime, and offer advice and engagement to those communities who seek it . I however have yet to investigate anyone for air pollution .

The person setting the pyro off is guilty of this, so apart from enforcing the law, the officer is also dealing with this issue.

Just remember people for every action there is a consequence

some will good.

some will not be so good

today @buster 's Dad had to miss part of the game because of someone's illegal bit of fun

sadly when they are caught the Justice system will Ban the person from games but there will be no compensation for Buster's Dad or anyone else inconvenienced by their action.

The fact is, BCFC don't want you to bring them into the stadium. It's their right to have that rule in place.

You might not suffer when in close proximity to these flares/bombs/grenades, but others do. If you think it's ok to do something illegal, that harms others and then be quite proud of it, then you need to sit down and think about your attitude towards others.

At the end of the day, it's just a bit of coloured smoke which will probably result in a fine for the club and more stewards deployed into that corner of the stadium.

A very polite answer it has to be said.

I’d have just called him out as a tosser.

A key issue about use of pyro. 

Has its pros  has its cons but so long as the club doesn't want it, more importantly cannot be seen to be condoning- both with respect to the law and ground regs, probably best to leave it ah home eh?

By all means, lobby for a change in the law but while the club risks getting into bother over it better safe than sorry etc.
