Trouble does not happen in a vacuum

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

A new strand has been added to the Cup Final “Rangers fans are blameless” narrative, which was started earlier by Gordon Waddell and now continues with Derek Johnstone:

If thousands of Hibs supporters don’t come on the pitch, there is no trouble.

This is a logical fallacy; the “trouble” cannot occur spontaneously by the Hibernian fans simply being on the pitch.

The trouble occurs by Rangers fans subsequently entering the pitch.

If Rangers fans do not enter the pitch, there is no trouble. None.
