I’ve made my feelings clear on the VT regarding a larger than most clubs section of their fans. Remember it is just a minority. Most are as disgusted with the behaviour of that minority as the rest of us.

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

I think you lot have been watching too much of the Football factory. Don't worry about Friday, you'll be OK.

I see you as middle class now too mate. McDonald's on the way out n'all.

Regarding this thread, we have some fans who are a disgrace to the club and Rugby league who are raising their ugly heads at the moment. I want them banned for life and I think most of us do, its a joke that saints fans can't just go home peacefully and feeling buoyant after the game. I won't comment on the catalans incident because there is a review happening and I really don't know exactly what's gone on, not that they will find a cause that justified the actions of the idiots getting involved. Please refrain from labelling us all that way, most wire fans are absolutely fine, same as every rugby league club.

It makes you wonder if the ones who attacked the coach actually went to the game. I was in the south stand for the game and moved to pond life for the second half, where the biggest knob heads normally gather. I didn't hear anything threatening inside the ground.

Here we go again. Anything to avoid blaming your own fans.

It's certainly a problem that needs dealing with. There will be people who will not attend games because of what's going on. Two games coming up against Wigan and Saints that will highlight any further issues. The club need to be doing things to remove the culprits and the stigma that's attached to decent fans. The frustration for fans of other clubs were the attempts to put the blame on anyone but those involved.

He's got a point tho (as much as you don't want to admit it from behind that fake anger).

This isn't last week, where fans inside the ground cam easily be seen causing problems. That's black and white.

This happened outside of the ground and no one can say one way or the other if it was Wire fans or some local chavs.

Sorry that doesn't fit your agenda.

I've posted before that I wish to have the perpetrators punished.
But I find your final paragraph totally way off the mark. There might be the odd numpty who will claim that Warrington fans did nothing wrong in France, but the vast majority certainly don't. However, evidence will have to be gathered and the factors for what happened understood, before any progress can be made.
What concerns me mostly is we now have a reputation for violence, and violence breeds violence. From my experience of watching the game in the seventies, there was a tit for tat mentality with some groups of supporters at certain clubs. There was even a league table of who had the worse fans, which had the effect of the idiots from each club wanting to be top of it. Coaches being "bricked" became a regular occurrence, and I still keep my colours hidden when coming home from the stadium of an away fixture, because of the experience of that era. I sincerely hope that we aren't heading back to those dark days, but I fear that Warrington will now be a magnet for retribution from some groups of rival supporters wanting to teach Warrington supporters a lesson, making it more difficult to watch RL in a safe and orderly environment.
I agree that Warrington need to take action against any identifiable culprit (and for Catalans to do the same), but this needs time to so. This won't be done quickly enough for some folk, and the episode with the Saints coach may prove impossible for the club to be able to do anything about (hopefully the police can do something if the perpetrator(s) can be ID'd).
it's a poor situation for us to be in, but the "pitchfork waving" and misjudged claims that were blaming everyone else but ourselves, are not going help to resolve anything.
