Dragging the sport through the dirt and can't accept they have an issue.

How are the apologists going to excuse this?

You are right, nothing can justify reading that "newspsper"
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

I see the culprit already met with Hicks and apologised. Wire issued him with a suspended ban. A line already drawn under the episode.

The Sun sensationalising again.

The sad thing is that the Sun is the most bought newspaper in the country.

You only have to remember their disgraceful news coverage of the Hillsborough disaster when 96 Liverpool supporters lost their lives.

It might have something to do with inbreeding. They should have made an example of the clown.

Anyone calling people "Scum" is out of order
Anyone who deflects blame for a problem that has festered within a club (And Warrington is the only ground that my wife and kids wouldn't go to due to a series of unsavoury incidents going back 10/15 years so they have their reasons that I agree with) is burying their head in the same and open to criticism so don't be surprised

However
The biggest question is this

How's that Bet on staying unbeaten for rest of season going on?

Some have short memories on here.

It wasn’t too long ago we had fighting almost weekly in the South Stand and at some away games. So to sit there and label Warrington a “dump” and their fans as “vile” really is rather hypocritical.

I work in Warrington and to be totally honest it’s a very nice place to go and work in. It’s town centre shames ours. Is there rough areas? Of course. Same as there is in Wigan. That comment from a previous poster calling Warrington a dump was totally off track and a great deflection tool.

99% of Warrington fans I’ve met and spoken to, before and after matches (including OT) were highly respectable and good people. Sit and tar them all with the same brush if you will but don’t try and portray all Wigan fans as a shining example of how fans should behave; just remember we have our fair share of idiots also. The pot has called the kettle black numerous times on this thread.

Well said pal
I have been home and away this season watching my beloved warriors and away at Warrington and never once felt intimidated or threatened in any way and that was before and after the game whilst mingling with supporters from both clubs
I agree that every club will have a minority of amoeba brains and Wigan is no different as I saw at several matches where someone in the crowd thought it was acceptable to let off flares and one was even thrown onto the pitch at Castleford just behind the cas players
These are highly dangerous pyrotechnics and can burn up to 18000 degrees(the marine flares) so to throw them or even set them off in a close proximity crowd where there are young children present just beggars belief

I have 35 years of experiencing the warrington fans and although they are not as bad as they were that hooligan element is still active and always will be,also our supporters use smoke bombs and not flares,i once remember at the ZOO as wilderspool was called back in the day Henderson Gill and ellery Hanley being subjected to monkey chants and throwing bananas I'm not really sure what Dessie Drummond made of all this i once remember him going into the crowd at widnes over some racists and how he was criticised at the time by the idiots in charge of the RFL
