Leigh gets upset

Smoke bombs are illegal at football grounds, anyone in possession, setting them off or launching them either onto the pitch or at the crowd should be charged by the police and banned from attending games. 

This should apply whether they are a supporter or a player

In a former life I used to be a chef but never once did I make a pea dough. 

 

Wonder why thumb hates it so much?

Griffiths just never thinks long enough to help himself. From the Rudi Skacel song to this incident, a wee bit of brain power would tell him not to get involved. It seems he'll never learn.

Having said that, it would be a bit hypocritical of St Johnstone fans saying someone could have been injured. Whoever threw the smoke bomb onto the pitch in the first place could have injured one of his own. Throwing a very hot item over peoples heads is crazy.

I'm going to suggest the guy who threw it was in the front row and that all necessary health and safety precautions were  followed. Let's just concentrate on the Thumb.

Hope if it hit anyone that it was the dick who brought it in, lit it and threw it on the pitch.

I'm sure the fan thought he was picking his phone out of his pocket and got a shock when he discovered it was indeed a live smoke bomb.

 

He's clearly dropped it on the pitch by accident, or perhaps to save his fellow fans?

 

No excuse for thumb's behaviour though. Despicable.

I was sitting near the wee girl that day, remember the girl was taken to hospital for suspected concussion I think,

 

Kirk was  later arrested and  done in the courts for it, mentioned in this article of players convicted for on field 'bad behaviour''  https://www.theguardian.com/football/2006/jan/18/theknowledge.sport

 

 

I was sitting just along from the incident as well. I remember immediately thinking that it was clearly deliberate to kick into the crowd as hard as possible in a fit of temper. Deserved to get punished for it.

It would be hypocritical if the fan who threw it was then criticising Griffiths. Nothing hypocritical about other fans in that stand criticising him. Fair to say other fans in the stand have more reason than anyone else to criticise.

Idiotic to throw a flare onto the pitch, even more so to kick it back. He just never thinks before acting... it's been the story of his life so far.

It's okay lads, he's apologised...

Good.

If it did hit someone on the head, the least he can do now is put them onto a decent hair weave company !

It would be more convincing if the statement used words Leigh actually knows.

Nearly removed it from the Stadium, such was his zeal to re-start the game quickly.

 

Thank you, Leigh.

Let him know there's a decent band called Porno for Pyros.   Got a funny feeling he'd be straight onto YouTube.

Unless Griffiths is going to be dropped from squad, Dundee need to ban Rangers fans from Saturday's game.

Going with the Stevie Kirk defense. Would be a little more convincing if the smoke bomb had been more than 6inches onto the pitch. Good of Dundee to include a photo of the stadium to show quite how far he has had to kick it to get it back into the stand.

 

You'd think this was an obvious and serious case that would result in a lengthy ban, but being Scottish football and who is involved, it is a lottery whether he'll even be charged.

To be fair, I’m sure he’d think it was a fair swap.

They are an offshoot of the band  (young) Jane's addiction.

Berra than you

Journalists in this country man. Saying "it's regrettable" is by no means an apology. He's just saying he didn't mean to kick it in to the crowd, albeit you'd have to have been born yesterday to buy that.

The statement is almost as bad as the incident. Long ban incoming.

 

Very much doubt he'll be available against us in October.

May have been running the show until he got injured when someone fairly took the ball first and man second

 

:greggy:

 

As part of his "apology" for booting the ball into the wee lassie's face, Kirk magnanimously invited her and her family to a forthcoming Motherwell home game as his guests. They wasted no time whatsoever in telling him where he could ram the tickets.  :icon14:

The children behind the goal think it's fun to throw the flare but how dare anyone try to return it......bleating like sheep in a field.

 

The village idiots from Perth were out in force and some got the response they wanted

Still not correct on both parties' accounts.

 

If the Fermer gets identified lobbing it, then they should get felt. Rightly. Griffiths' reaction was unprofessional & potentially even more dangerous to someone in the crowd. Whether or not the (and I can't believe I'm typing this about St. Johnstone) "Ultra" crew ( :lol: ) were responsible. 

 

Dundee's "statement" is just laughable in the extreme. I'd be embarrassed if Hearts tried to defend that.

An awful lot of plurals there when it was one person who threw it onto the pitch, what Griffith's did was way more likely to cause injury. Nobody has condoned either act, well until you did anyway.

Thrown onto pitch no where near anyone. 

 

Thrown into crowd of hundreds of people packed closely together.

It's not CJ's first rodeo. One of his poorer efforts though.

Stupid thing to do. You don't excuse the throwing of the flare but you can't boot it back into the crowd.  Griffiths doesn't help himself in any way. 

 

That hits someone in then he's looking at serious issues.

Statement from club and Leigh Griffiths

September 23, 2021 / Club

Dundee Football Club and Leigh Griffiths would like to address a regrettable incident which occurred during last night’s Premier Sports Cup tie with St. Johnstone at the Kilmac Stadium.
Following the opening goal a smoke generator, amongst other items, was thrown onto the park by the visiting supporters. This pyrotechnic ended up back in the stand as Leigh kicked it to remove it from the field of play.
Leigh said of the incident, “It was regrettable that the pyrotechnic ended up back in the stand as my intention was just to remove it from the pitch.”
“Having just lost a goal I was eager to get the match restarted as quickly as possible and I would like to apologise for any distress caused by this action.”
The club will be making no further comment on this situation.
