Took the lads to 20 20 Notts v Birmingham last night. What a great day out, you can take your beer and food to your seats, dress as a banana, men dressed up as women and the stewards are in complete contrast to our lot, friendly, dancing around when Notts hit a six. Can you imagine ours celebrating a stags goal and to cap it off I saw someone wearing a stone island top!

You could say the same about football fans. I've never understood why so many feel the need to have a belly full before a game. A few social pints i get but some take it way to far and surely can't watch or follow the game properly.

Says he who regularly attends Notts Forest and Nottingham County!!! To be fair T20 is shiite. It's not cricket. As for games at Surrey how embarrassing to see grown men, bankers no less, getting bevvied up and making fools of themselves! The 'women' aren't exactly much better

Martin and I both have ECB accreditation and can walk into any domestic game anywhere FOC. We may not be paid but at least we get that in return (and at the likes of international grounds get well catered for)

Wow what a bizarre comment. Always fights, really? The wife and I have missed very few games at Trent Bridge in the last 5 years and attended Finals Day at Edgbaston last year and have never seen anybody arguing let alone throwing punches at one another.

indeed Grendon. I have barely missed a Kent T20 game in the past five years (apart from yesterday), and have seen at least 80% of them since T20 started in 2003, and I have never seen any fight of any description. Including at the game Arsene talks about at the Oval this season. However as there were 23,000 people there, I can't say it didn't happen.

Until you have travel abroad watching england with the Barmy army t'ator you'll never understand why.

And Jamie, saturday is not just about the football. Football is just part of the day. For me its about meeting my mates and having a few beers. If my mates wernt there, I doubt the football would be.

Well then I'll never know Jas.... oops sorry :oops: will I as it's something I have little interest in.
Just as an aside are there 'safe' areas where folk can sit with kids etc and not get sprayed with ale everytime someone whacks a 4. Or out of earshot of the more bawdy talk if someone drops a catch. I'd imagine it'd be pretty unnerving for a family having 10-15 'mates' in a group at the back of them unable to control themselves.

Cricket grounds have alcohol free areas. Like you Spiro, I do not understand the desperation to get smashed before a football match, I've never done it and it would truly spoil the game for me - cricket is slightly different as it takes all day and you can hear the volume increase as the day wears on. Completely disagree with JR about T20, it is saving cricket and is fantastic entertainment and has had the knock on that test and 50 over cricket has become much more entertaining. A T20 at Notts is a great night out, especially as they are smashing everyone at the moment. I've never seen any trouble at any cricket match other than the odd drunken fool being spoken to mostly for his own safety! I'm off to the day nighter test match later this week, should be a good experience and is probably the future, especially for games which may not sell out like the WI series. Cricket is great, some of you need to get with it :lol:

In terms of excitement Cricket is just a minor upgrade from Fishing.

I can watch for free from work as my office overlooks Trent Bridge and even then I don't bother as I don't want to get caught sleeping at work!

It did happen. It was a Friday night game full of lads in their 20s, large groups, stag dos etc. I was sat in block 18 of the OCS stand. I was shocked because like it was said, it was blue collar workers.
