Problems with Dick Knight at Brighton due to a Brentford scan problem

Brighton President Dick Knight’s card problems were not due to the club’s away card policy, the CEO said.

In his program notes ahead of Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Nottingham Forest, Paul Barber has stressed that videos of an incident in which Knight lost his temper over ticketing issues were misrepresented on social media.

In fact, Barber has pointed out that the reasons for the honorary president’s fights were an error that meant Knight’s ticket wasn’t properly scanned.

Barber wrote of the abuse some staff members were subjected to: “Part of that abuse happened after one or two of our followers seemed to take bizarre pleasure in becoming a witness and filmer, as club president Dick Knight noted, he due from being unable to enter the stadium Failure of Brentford’s stadium access system.

“If Albion staff hadn’t helped, Dick (and other fans experiencing the same issue) would have had a long trek to the other side of the stadium to gain entry. Despite this, at least one person decided to misrepresent what actually happened to Dick on social media, leading to even more abuse of our employees.”

A video circulated on Twitter appeared to show Knight protesting with staff about issues with his tickets, saying “I’m the friggin’ president of the club.”

Knight is known for helping save the club in 1997 after the Goldstone Ground was sold to property developers.

The honorary president will now step down from his role for the next few games, meaning he will not attend the games or represent the club in any way.

In a statement posted to the club’s website, Knight acknowledged that his behavior was “not befitting of the club’s president.”

He has apologized to fans, adding: “I would like to offer my unreserved apologies to anyone who may have offended or upset me with my behavior in Brentford last Friday night in Brentford, particularly the staff at Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion who felt friendly and helpful Ensuring access to the stadium afterwards, repeated attempts to use my ticket had failed. I will not comment further on this subject.”
