I Really Don't Understand Why This Is Getting Done!

I don't get why people travelling to games have to have their drink taken off them. I thought the ban at games was in the stadium and not going there.

This really is pathetic. Rugby fans can get served booze at games and football fans can't even in drink on private transport.

As a non-drinker now myself, it is not something that affects me.

But in my younger day when I travelled to games on the bus, and drinking was the norm,I don't remember any time when there was any real bother with the drink ... Maybe I'm getting older & the memory is going: Being selective: Or so pissed then, eh jist cannae mind :wacko:

However I agree Cobra ... There is an inequality going on there !!

It would interesting to know how many Rangers and Celtic supporters buses have been stopped since the beginning of the 2018-19 football season by Police Scotland checking for passengers having alcohol on their person.
