10 things banned in the Red and Black Bloc

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Western Sydney Wanderers fan group the Red and Black Bloc have had their right to bare, well, anything, withdrawn from them at Parramatta Stadium.

It's an indefinite ban that will prolong until the club and key stakeholders are happy that the club's active support will not create antisocial behaviour through the use of flares, violence, obscene language and the like.

While the situation is the culmination of months of indiscretions by the RBB, the ramifications still seem harsh. With an away win tonight against Brisbane Roar we thought it a good time to lighten the mood and create the hashtag #ThingsBannedInRBB. Here's the best ten tweets:

1.  Accountability.
They'll have to smuggle some of this in. It'll be like prohibition.

2.  Blue. 
The band? Because their vocal harmonies and in-time moves were simply sublime.

3. Channel 9. 
Even the airspace above the RBB is a no-fly zone for Channel 9 helicopters.

4. Rat's Tails and Bum Bags. 
Alone these are both awful but the pair combined meant we were close to handing out the ban ourselves.

5. 70s jeans that taper out at the bottom. #miscommunication
You've been reading too much Sack Attack Mr Meacock.

6.  Latte's. 
I think there's a rule where one guy called 'Sydney' is allowed and that's it. 

7. Living east of Marrickville.
The great dividing line. God help you if you live on Illawarra Rd.  

8.  Xenophobic idiots keen to peddle stereotypes. 
Some of the tweets that came in were in poor taste and we're with Alex on rightly condemning them.

9. Deodorant. 
All that jumping and scarf waving means it gets funky in the Bloc. But that adds to the experience, we're told.

10. Anyone wanting to be rescued from the Titanic.
This one's mine. The poor passengers simply wanting their souls saved and they can't let off a flare. Oh the humanity.
