Was talking with someone about this yesterday, half ridiculous stuff you see in the loi, the two, rather tame admittedly, that sprang to mind for me were

Being at a shels game where a fire broke out in a floodlight, knocking them all off, a lad came out then with a jug of water to try and put it out and fix the floodlight! Thanks to one do-gooder we never got to see what the outcome would have been, game was called off anyway

A game in Bray being delayed five minutes as a song was going on the pa system and they couldn't turn it off

Lee Duffy (AKA sideshow Bob) had the piss ripped out of his hair cut by one of our players last year in front of the main stand, to the applause and laughter of everyone in the stand.

Peter Hutton shouting instructions at his players, being backed up by shouts from his assistant which instead of helping just drowned out Huttons instructions even more, prompting Hutton to turn around to him and telling him to shut up.

During a pre season friendly, The PA announcing that there will be a penalty shout out at the end of the game. 5 minutes before the end of the game announcing the penalty shout out is off. At the full time whistle announcing the shoot out is back on before finally announcing it was off!

A club (Rovers) releasing a statement that they had "parted ways" with their manager (Heary). Minutes later that manager taking issue with "parted ways" live on television and proudly arguing that he was sacked! The video on YouTube remains comedy gold!

You've just reminded me of two from Kenny Shiels last weekend!

Firstly he was getting some abuse from our fans, telling him to go back to Scotland, which he then said to two GardaĆ­ walking past to try and get the lads kicked out, they kept walking and he proceeded to get the mick ripped out of him for the rest of the match

He later asked the fourth official if the referee was on drugsLOL

Interesting outsider's view:

"Perhaps the reason that they did not consider the worst, was because discussion of such cases would have cast suspicion on the planner as being a "saboteur". Paranoia was rampant throughout."

The Bohs PA asking for a shot of a Samsung charger during a match last year.

Was it Sligo where a car reg was read out because they left the window open and 'we think it might rain'.

Keith Buckley cycling home alongside the Luas full of Bohs fans after the derby.

Several clubs announcing new signings and attaching photos of the wrong player.

Theres only one sport that matters..
