Turn A Blind Eye

Following the riot after Persipura's 1-0 home defeat by Persija, which saw the visiting team forced to leave the stadium three hours after the game ended by boat, the Indonesia Super League in their wisdom have seen fit to impose no sanction on the home team.

This is of course bollocks and double standards. You can be sure that had Persebaya, Persib, Arema or Persija hosted that game the ISL would have imposed a heavy fine and forced them to play home games behind closed doors.

Persipura increased the security presence for their next home game with PSPS but as they won that game 2-1 to keep their feint hopes of the title alive there was never gonna be any problems there.

Not for the first time, the authorities have found themselves powerless to take action against certain teams.

One day, maybe not in my lifetime, but one day the game will be run by people who are motivated by improving football at all levels. Until that day comes we will continue to see shit like this.
