    I've been to a handful of football games in Europe and have never been pat down. Granted none were in France, but still.

    I know this is hard for you to understand, but multiple people can be at fault when something happens. It's kinda hilarious that you're going on about how everyone always blames others and then immediately go on and blame others.

    No one is remotely excusing what the idiot "fans" did today. They're idiots and deserve every punishment they get and more. However, that doesn't change the fact that security has been sub-part thus far in the tournament.

    I'm also not sure what "dumbasses english fans" have to do with things being thrown onto the pitch as the only issues with contraban in the stadiums has been from Russian and now Croatian "fans" But hey it's cool, it's all England's fault.

    Clearly, you have inside info that they don't take threats seriously.

    Clearly.

    Like with most things nothing is black and white... Everyone deserves a fair share of blame. The idiots who actually caused the mess and those who's sole responsibility is stopping these things from happening. The bottom line is these events are always at risk and the security has been a joke, there's no way of getting around that.

    Inside information? Of course not don't be absurd. The ability to think rationally and logically and deduce that the French security, who have allowed flares, flare guns, and banned supporters into a stadium so far this tournament - which is only a week long thus far - are probably not taking security as seriously as they ought to be given the threat from ISIS and the fact that French stadiums and the French National Team have been targeted before. Hell, they even had advance warning about the banned supporters.

    I know it's hard for you to understand but I suggest you use your incredible internet skills and use the search feature.
    Now, search every post by Shrimper on the soccer board.

    WHATEVER happens, WHOEVER is the dumbass who acts like a dumbass, it's ALWAYS the french fault.
    Go ahead.
    Then maybe you'll understand my post and why I gave the english example.

    And yes, people who act like criminals ARE the criminals.

    Should I blame the US police for the Orlando massacre?

    I don't think I was patted down at either the Emirates, Kassam Stadium (Oxford), or in Florence.

    Classy comparing the two. But to answer your question, it does seem like there should be some level of blame upon the FBI who were aware of him and should have done more to prevent him from being able to purchase a gun.

    No one is saying that it is purely France's fault. The majority of the blame should be leveled at the idiots who threw the flares. That doesn't mean that French security is devoid of all blame.

    Blame who you want I don't have a side, I don't care. I didn't even watch it live. I thought they were croatian, but if they aren't, then change it to whichever nationality they are.
    Doesn't change those are dumbass fans, right?

    I talked about the english because of Shrimper.
    That got over your head, didn't it?

    What are crowd figures?

    Hard to pat down 40-50k which is why it's harder to sneak something into a concert than a soccer match.

    What does that have to do with anything. I've never been patted for Serie A matches (2) or any of the Russian Premier ones I've been to (25+).

    Wait, did you mean flares "should" or "shouldn't" enter the stadium? ;)

    Why are people still talking about ****ing pat downs? There are multiple pat downs before you can get anywhere near the stadium, I know this because unlike everyone else in the thread I have actually attended a match at this tournament.

    Pat downs are pointless for something as small as a flare or a banger, both can easily be hidden in your underpants.

    I wasn't comparing the situations but obviously the blaming.

    I never said french security wasn't to be blamed. I said it in my VERY FIRST post.

    Around 20k.

    Shhh, you make WAY too much sense here.
