Yes think they should , at least the club should advertise it as a red and white night and encourage people to wear their colours. Most important tho is getting behind them with proper noise like the early days at NY and no getting on players backs during the game even if we are behind

Pathetic isn't it really health and safety and football, the other week I went to watch Gloucester v Newcastle in their European semi - there were flags ON STICKS every couple of seats, fans from both sides intermingled , not a hint of trouble !

So no sticks allowed, But 10,000 millers have to cram into a unsafe bottleneck after the game so that 1200 scunny fans can have the space and safety of New York way !

SYP couldn't organise a fire in a match factory. They were happy to hold away fans back at Hillsborough a few years ago and then the year after were happy to hold us on on Leppings Lane but they won't hold back 1500 at the NYS at any point when it is clearly a lot safer for everyone involved.

caytonmiller
15-05-2018, 11:33 AM
Me being in the lounge has nothing to contribute to the problem, infact you should be thanking me as me being forced to stay behind frees up more room.. and as you know onsite parking won't be released until the rest of the fans have left.. if I'm happy to be delayed a extra 10 minutes (already 30 min after final whistle) then you would think the people who it effects would put themselves out a little..
I'm offering a solution as the club/syp are not going to change the exit arrangment.

Wow sarcasm and hypocrite in one thread. I feel a hat tricks coming!

Agree about syp though if they see the current exit arrangment as the safest option why would they change it.

Problem is Cayton, they have changed it over and over again and we had had some right aggro at some matches whhich had been forecast before a game was played.

This is a high tension game and it could kick off big time

Lol wasting your time on someone who thinks he knows it all, has Cayton ever been in that situation at NYS? Lol I’m sure he will say he has.

West stand is generally one of last out but it didn’t stop some that did stay behind nearly get hit by flying rocks when Millwall came.

Like I’ve said it’s the club (who were warned about Millwall) who don’t want it to be their problem when/ if it kicks off.

I've waited until 10-15 minutes after the end of the game and the crush is just as bad on Don Street. Maybe I should wait until the following morning 😕
The exit strategy is dangerous and the problem needs addressing before something serious happens.
Lecturing people about when they should leave doesn't help.

Comon mellow. These type of posts don't suit you. You know full well no one has lectured people about when to leave and your a cleaver bloke to workout if 7000 fans leave the ground over a 15 minute period would not be as bad as all 7000 leaving str away..
We all know it's not ideal though the only solution is spend X amount on a bridge to sent potential 2600 fans into a more dangerous bottle neck situation. or detain the fans for 15 min which syp only do in extreme cases..

Not sure why Clayton is getting stick here.
Don St is a problem and needs sorting. Holding back the away fans might be the answer but the club and police don't seem keen.
Suggesting hanging back a bit doesn't seem too radical an idea

I will have another word if you want to continue the discussion rather than throw insults. Alternatively put me on block so you don't have to read my dribble..

From the 150 ish home games at NYS (can't be bothered to Google the exact amount) Millwall is the only one where outside has been a major problem. That Inc lots of local Derby games where outside the grounds are a hot spot..
and no I've never been in the situation ( not at NYS) as I'm kept behind until other fans have left the ground though at several other ground I've attended have such bottle necks and as mentioned we used to leave early or wait behind. Contributing to the problem never helps

As I said Cayton, I usually wait a good 10-15 minutes after the game has finished but masses of people are still shuffling along Don Street past the crumbling G&C building. The situation is then made much worse by people coming across the car park from the West Stand and increasing the crush in the bottleneck where they enter Don Street.
Leaving early is not an option for me, I never do whatever the score.
The exit strategy is dangerous and needs changing but I guess it will take a serious accident before the authorities do anything about it.

As I said m8. Syp prob don't see it as a problem so nothing will be done until as you say. A serious accident happens.. personally as a parent with older kids and as a grandparent or like Dave with a 4 year old.

There's always a "bottleneck" exiting via Don Street and after bigger games/crowds it's worse, but is it really dangerous? It's not ideal....but dangerous? Really? As far as I am aware, there's never been any hint of a crush, it just takes longer after big games, especially so when away fans' exit is fenced off. There's always going to be delays when 11,500 fans exit more or less at once. It's part and parcel of the whole experience, like it or not. There'd be bigger howls of anguish if there was no segregation at games when trouble was likely and it all kicked off.

I suspect that all this moaning is more a case of folk being racked off cos they're after match pint is being delayed by another 10-15 minutes.

Some have tripped up near the kerb and knocked into others

BramleyMiller58
16-05-2018, 12:49 PM
In a word
Potentially

Anybody trips or falls (poor lighting & uneven kerbs) etc then the crowd behind are just going to keep pushing forward.
How would emergency services get through ?

It's not a safe egress exit (IMHO)

Best solution is if we win.

Scunny will go straight away, some RUFC fans will go straight away, some will go after watching the pitch invasion and the rest will leave after they've celebrated on the pitch.

Just need to make sure we get to Wembley and even the police will be happy

Donmiller
16-05-2018, 01:32 PM
There's not really any point in discussing the exit strategy as there is nothing Rotherham can do to change it immediately. SYP refuse to hold fans back, this isn't down to the club it's a police decision. Whilst it's not ideal I wouldn't say its dangerous, it has a potential to be dangerous but I have never seen or heard of anybody being injured. I agree building a bridge/tunnel is a good idea but that's evidently not in our plans as it hasn't ever been mentioned. It's been 6 seasons I think people should just get over it and accept that's going to have to be our exit route for big crowd games. Or just wait 10 min behind at full time if you are that bothered
