This is Kim Tae-seok’s personal opinion for a cup of soccer. One of the biggest topics in the K-League these days is blocking buses. Bus blocking, a group action outside the premises of fans who express their disagreement about the team performance or the situation the club is in and blame the person in charge, is considered inappropriate no matter how much the reason is given.
This is because the only answer that can be obtained in a close-knit atmosphere is to bow their heads, saying that they will do well in the next game. It’s just a waste of emotion, trying to relieve a little bit of resentment from passing on the unknown bad feeling I feel to the other person. And no matter how much control those in charge of the on-site situation within the group have, you never know what kind of unexpected situation will arise at a gathering of many.메이저놀이터
Once an accident strikes, then it will get out of hand. Who should be responsible then? Whether it’s an accident or not, intentionally blocking someone’s path can itself be a legal problem. So, I think all controversies and fights should end within the arena.
Still, I’d like to add a bit of defense for the fans who do this. In other words, you can’t help but wonder if it would have been like that. These are people who can invest the same money and time to enjoy other leisure activities, such as movies, or spend the weekend over a drink with friends or family. The reason why they rush to the stadium and criticize some club personnel and raise their voices is because they have a sense of being my team.
In this respect, the scenery that was created in the match between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Incheon United in the 6th round of Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 9th was just amazing. Jeonbuk, the home team, attempted so-called ‘amp cheering’, citing reasons that people who did not know the context would be shocked to hear that it was for players who could not receive support due to various problems surrounding the team.
When Jeonbuk was doing well, fans were excited and cheers flowed out on the display board, and there were fans who were crazy because they were ridiculous. It was a scene that felt bizarre.
No matter how different reasons Jeonbuk gave, this was a club called Jeonbuk who was determined and trying to fight with the fans. As long as they do not completely cross the legal line, such as violence, all clubs always need to humbly accept fan complaints. Even if the banner protests and cheering boycotts in the stadium feel very painful, we must accept that it is the public sentiment towards the team and be able to improve the situation. Unless the contents of the banners and slogans are racial, political, religious, or geographic discriminatory, clubs should not act to silence fans, no matter how intrusive.
In this context, Jeonbuk’s response to fans boycotting their support by mobilizing amplifiers was truly the worst. Despite covering numerous matches both domestically and internationally for a long time, I have never seen a team like this.
Basically, it was a disappointing response that made me want to question whether fans exist in Jeonbuk’s club management plan and whether they have the attitude to serve fans, who are the most basic of the basics. It was a response that could not be done unless they were regarded as ‘black consumers’ rather than fans. A football club that wants to fight openly with fans like this, where in the world is there a team like this? No matter how painful the message they are sending, they are always fans to serve. If Jeonbuk claims to be the number one club in the K-League, this point should not be forgotten.
