On the 26th of December 2012 Celtic defeated Dundee 2 – 0 at Dens Park. That night a Dundee official said he had witnessed the worst football violence since the 1970’s .
Peter Lawwell was so incensed that he asked the ticket office to supply him with the names of all season ticket holders for section 111 who had tickets for that game. Why he never just asked for the names of every season ticket holder who was there is so far a mystery. The following day bloggers, journos and ex Celtic players who were not present had a dig at our support for this ‘riot’.
So far on planet Earth I’ve yet to meet anyone who was there say there was a riot. I have been told of a fight that took place between two families who had a grudge to settle but a fight is not a riot. For anyone in doubt this sadly is a riot.
Now the above riot has been documented on video and in pictures and it led to the banning of alcohol in Scottish football grounds. Not only that but tighter controls on entry to a match.
The strange thing about the Dundee riot of 2012 is that we have not seen any video or picture evidence neither has their been any high level or even low level ‘summit’ held by any politicians, Police or football authorities. Surely if there was such a threat to public order at Dens Park then the high and mighty of the land would have been commissioning reports and holding investigations into this ‘riot’.
So in an attempt to find out what really happened we would like people to post links to video and images of the Dundee riot. If there was indeed a riot I’m sure there will be plenty of hard evidence to support this. Just like Hampden 1980 and The Gallowgate Tea Party 2013.
TCN is not here to hide stuff like this so if there is proof of a riot we will publish it.
