Nah. He's got folk wrongly screaming paedo at him, he's entitled to give a bit back. 

I'll flare you, yi dick. 

Again, give a little - don't cry wolf when it's given back. 


That would be a fair point if Griffiths had any idea who the smoke bomb would strike when he booted it into the crowd.

I know and I think this is what's making it worse for him.

His head seems to be elsewhere altogether, getting the abuse constantly in the last 2 games with the worst game yet to come, this latest incident, along with the clear downward spiral of fitness and performance, throw in the previous mental health issues.

I think his mental health is in real danger.

I’d argue that the club needs to protect him in the same vein that they protected Gowser, but it does work both ways. Gowser, albeit a bit of a dick, has pulled it in off the pitch seemingly. Can you trust Griffiths to do the same?

Which begs the question, what are we doing loaning him?

Take it you missed the other video of the 7 year old lassie catching the flare in her teeth, putting it out on her tongue then giving Leigh the finger shouting peado, no? 

 

😂😂😂

I’m up next month to see mates and for The Dabbadeen game if you’re about for a pint or two?

If a Dundee fan in the Derry had been hit by a flare thrown by the Saints crowd do you think it would be reported to the police? 

Folks double standards when it comes to footballers is wild.

No. Celtic fans fired them into The Derry a few years back, you just man up and get on with it.

Show a bit of class FFS.

The mere mention of pants.

It's a bit of disgrace singing that sort of thing about a players' family member. A person that has done nothing to deserve being in the public eye yet if she goes to take her kids to see her brother play, that's what they get exposed to.

It’s a bit of a disgrace that an innocent fan may well have been injured by a smoke bomb smashed into a section housing children.

To be fair, he removed 2 prior to this by kicking them to the side of the pitch.

The argument holds water. All players hit a sliced shot now and then.

Case closed.


Smoke bombs smashed into children is ok to joke about but a song about pants is disgraceful apparently. Football fans will perform incredible gymnastics to defend the actions of their own. Even if their own are convicted racists

It's a bit of a disgrace that children are chanting paedo for an hour, then taking a 'bomb' (as described by others) into a football stand and launching it onto the pitch right by where a group of photographers were. What the f**k is the parenting like in Perth?!

Glad that's the matter closed now though.

Fly with the crows, get skelpt in the pus with a flare with the crows - IMO.

To be fair I've no idea about the fan, but if it's shown that there was intent and he/she just has really bad aim then they deserve the appropriate punishment. 

I think you'd be hard pressed to argue that LG didn't intend to cause injury, or that the action was likely to result in injury.

😂😂😂 

You should’ve just stopped before you had a thought 😂😂😂

Fair play to Dundee for issuing a public statement admitting a Griffiths did indeed undertake a task that wasnt in his job role, for which he wasn't trained and in a manner which recklessly endangered supporters in the ground.

Aye, he may have went undetected otherwise, eh? :blink:

It was maybe set up to help all parties, Celtic didn't want him, Griffiths maybe wanted out from the stress of Glasgow for a while, gets to be close to his kids, play football again regularly, McPake gets a 'goal scorer'.

You're right. The statement cleared it up, he only intended to put it safely out of harm's way. 

As I've said, interested to see what action's taken if any. Nobody comes out of this looking good and I do hope they young lads don't bring the pyros to Hampden.

I’m glad he booted it in the away end. If only he could’ve kicked the other 2 flares as far back as well that would’ve been braw.
