RBB statement blasts clubs for 'clear lack of balls'

The Red and Black Bloc, Western Sydney Wanderers' active supporters group, issued a statement via social media on Tuesday condemning the club, FFA and the state of football in Australia.

Supporters in the RBB lit two flares during the Sydney derby at Allianz Stadium on Sunday, prompting the Wanderers to shut down their active support area for their next match and FFA to issue the club with a show cause notice - its fourth in the last two years.

The RBB's response on Facebook was a very strongly worded condemnation of the club leadership for not having 'enough balls to stand up the the FFA' and for having 'sold their souls along with their dignity and respect'.

It labels the club owners and CEOs hypocrites for criticising the governing body in private, but in public 'kneel down and lick their boots'.

It goes on to slam the much-maligned FFA and the general state of football and the way it is run in Australia.

Multiple RBB members at the match wore shirts attacking the FFA and held banners calling for FFA CEO David Gallop to quit.
