    Reading on X that a fan has been banned by the Club for arguing with a steward over a flag.

    Reading the comments, there's a swell of support for the fan who's been banned.

    Does anyone on here know anything? Context?

    Dint think it was Stahlrost but someone who'd taken over the flag duties. Miss seeing it on matchday!

    Yeah you might be right - I know he used to do that flag, so I must have just got may names mixed up.

    Yet again, fans berating club when majority don't know the whole story. I could literally go on twitter, make an account, and accuse the steward of calling me a fat ******* during this and people would believe it.

    Steward could be in the wrong, I don't know. But the instant jumping on is annoying.

    Correct Helen, I didn't get banned at all, in fact I effectively banned myself by stopping going to games. It was @thetykester who kindly took over the Preedy flag duties, but I've lost track of what happened after that.

    I think I will wait to find out more before getting the pitchfork out.

    It wasn't my intention to accuse you of anything by the way - hope you didn't take my post that way. Was simply a reference to some other flag-based incident I was trying to recall.

    Yep, there is only one person on there asking for a bit of context, many just piling on.

    I think it's actually 2 fans that have there season tickets cancelled.

    From what I heard yesterday one of them tried to enter and his ticket came up as invalid so he went to the box office to see what had happened and got told he had been suspended from attending for 3 matches.

    All a bit much for holding a flag up.

    Many many people on Twitter just seem incapable of thought. It's just the way it is.

    Don’t know all the details but if it’s the fella I’ve been told it is he lives and breathes BFC. Never misses a game home or away.

    Nope, wasn't offended at all, don't worry! I just stopped going because of Conway etc etc. I always got on well with Beth, bless her, who's Barnsley through and through and was very helpful with the Preedy/Cryne flag back then.

    Blimey. What's on the flag. Swastika? Religious symbolism? Mel Sterland's face?

    Again, need to get the facts, but I find it very hard to believe the Club have suspended and/or cancelled STs, for holding a flag up. Unless the flag was particularly offensive, in which case I would need to see what the flag said before forming an opinion.

    It was an American flag supporting Pines.

    Okey doke. Hopefully some more info comes out then, to clear up what's actually happened.

    It’ll be someone being a ******, I’m certain.
