'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millmoor becomes Smoke Free

Rotherham United, along with every other League Club in the Country has announced that from the start of next season Millmoor will be a 'no smoking' stadium, says the Official Site.

After the initiative was taken by The Championship clubs, the League held talks with all clubs and also took into account The Football League Supporters Survey 2006, where almost 80% of those voting said they would like some form of 'smoke free' policy at football matches with half wanting a total ban.

The League's Chairman, Lord Mawhinney, said 'We aim to get more families and young fans going along to watch their local football league teams and this new policy will ensure that they can do that without it having a negative effect on their health.'

As I don't smoke, I personally think this is a good thing. But, will it stop people coming to football matches? Or will it make more people come?

Lets stop drinking then. Drink ruins lives on the same scale as smoking, and dont say it dont affect others, tell that to the victims of drink drivers

SO WORBO ... INTELLEGENT REPLY , I THINK NOT .... THE ISSUE IS BREATHING IN 'OTHER' PEOPLES SMOKE INVOLUTARALY.. WHAT I WILL SAY IS IF YOUR DRIVING AND BEHAVIOUR CONSTITUTES A RISK TO OTHERS ie SPEEDING, DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRINK AND DRUGS AND YOU ARE CAUGHT YOU WILL BE PUNISHED ACCORDINGLY AND RIGHTLY SO , SO IF YOU ARE CAUGHT SMOKING IN PUBLIC WHICH IS KNOWN TO HAVE A DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON SOMEONES HEALTH AND WELL BEING THEN YOU TOO SHOULD AND WILL BE PUNISHED ACCORDINGLY
