Once they find the idiot who did this, I hope they give him the most severe punishment possible.  Which I think would be to give him a free season ticket, but on appeal would probably be reduced to life imprisonment.

Getting banned for your conduct at a friendly and it didn't involve a riot, being banned from an island or nearly sinking a boat is reprehensible.

Hope they find the moron.

Such a bizarre and scummy thing to do at the best of times nevermind during a pre season friendly. Hopefully the person is found.
Good people will do good things, bad people will do bad things, but only with religion do good people do bad things!

The coin came from a group of children as far as I can see, let’s keep things in perspective. Yes, the kid should get his arse kicked, but I’ve already seen someone say elsewhere he should be banned for life.

Kids do stupid things, and hopefully when found his parents are mortified and kick his arse, but the club educating him rather than punishing him would be a far more appropriate course of action here.

It was from one of the weans that congregated down the front of the shed. Excited to find out this is actually a blindspot for our amazing CCTV system, introduced for just this.

Very level headed. Something more creative that would teach him a lesson without being heavy-handed would be good. Make him clean the youth teams boots if he wants back in or something

Yeah did wonder if it would have been one of the kids. More tactful approach would be needed if so whilst still demonstrating the seriousness.

Not the sort of publicity we want to be attracting right now. We aren't Falkirk.

I remember being annoyed at a linesmans performance at Stenhousemuir and I threw half a mars bar at him.
Was disgusted at myself for months, raging I didn’t get to finish it.

Don’t forget lettuce-gate (no, it wasn’t a cauliflower).

And the St Mirren player who ate half of the bounty bar that was chucked at him.

“McGhee needs some support, there’s no-one backing him up.

Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here’s Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control…”

 

“That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton’s supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.”

Spot on.
After the previous chief exec and letter gate, this is an opportunity to do something positive that could get the club some proper publicity in attempting to make a difference, as opposed to Partick thistle per se, and their money making scheme.
A wee bit of restorative justice. Unpaid work, meet an referee or something. Sort of stuff that will cost nothing but will earn the club a fair amount of good will.

I mind Mark Yardley getting scudded with a pie in front of the cowshed. Fat b’stard looked like he wanted to pick it up and eat it.

To be fair, I think letters and statements have to be done to show the club are doing something and it helps minimise any punishment.

What happens after is probably a better measure of how things are run though and the suggestion would be in everyone's interests if it was a young boy.

Is there an alert system at Trust HQ for whenever your big mate Iron Man gets slated on the forum?


The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Not disagreeing that the club had to make the statement that they did.
As you said what happens next is the measure of the club though

I think half a dozen warning letters, containing threats of prison, is the only way to go here. Unless it happened at Ibrox, of course.

The club have identified the individual who threw the coin and have given them a stadium ban for an indefinite period.

 

Its now with Police Scotland for any further action.


Im making perfect sense, your just not keeping up.
