General Security to be beefed up

NEWCASTLE will meet today with police to discuss beefing up security for Friday night's match against the Bulldogs at EnergyAustralia Stadium.

About 30 police and 60 security guards were at EnergyAustralia for the round one match against Parramatta.

That figure could surge past 100 for the game against the Bulldogs, who encountered fan trouble again last Friday night.

"Clearly it's an issue that has to be sorted out," said NRL chief executive David Gallop.

Gallop, Bulldogs CEO Malcolm Noad, Police Commissioner Ken Moroney, Police Minister Carl Scully and Telstra Stadium chief Ken Edwards will meet tomorrow to discuss the issue.

"We don't want to say too much more until after the meeting," Gallop said.

Yes i know this isnt relavent to the story but i couldnt really find a story on what im about to say!!

Imo...and before you think im being bias i am not....we shouldnt be stripped of points....its not the players, or management that started that fight....it was the fans....well so called fans...if they were real fans of the tiger and the bulldogs both people/parties wouldnt have started fighting...and has it actually been proven that the bulldogs fan started it??
who cares if its a dogs home game, the tigers play their home games there too ffs!!

Well i watched the news too yesterday when they said and of course this is just what I saw on the news that clubs could face fines and points being srtipped if fan fair like what happened between Bulldogs and Tigers fans happened happens. i don't see why the team and other fans should be penalised because of the actions of a few. It's not up to the players how the fans act and it's not up to the club to make fans act a certain way. The only way I see that a club could be penalised is through a fine for not putting in appropriate secruity in order to stop tiffs going to full blown out fights and stupid behaviour. Either way the NRL would be getting to trigger happy stripping points for something like this

I aggree ronnie, why strip points ffs thats not gunna stop fans fighting, if anything it will make it continue as the dogs fans will be even more angry imo!!!

And its not like the Bulldogs havent tried to clean up the image of the club..as noadsy has...

And theres a thread on the bulldogs forum about something at the roosters and rabbits game, and a guy spat on a cop as well or something, i dont hear anything about it ffs

It's not the club's fault the fight broke out, therefore the club should not be punished. Simple logic.

Slighty off topic - that Bulldogs/Knights game should be an absolute ripper. I'm really looking forward to it.

Give the Dogs day games only, and only on a sunday
Thats not going to stop those fuckwits from coming.

Also what about the real, true fans, what if they cant get time off work, it will just reduce crowd numbers.

I also think making fans sit on different sides of the stadium is soo stupid.
What if you just wanna go and watch a game with ya best mate who happens to support the other team?? They're going to be on different sides of the Stadium!!!
