'Scunthorpe fans asked not to dress as squirrels for Alan Knill return' - Guardian
Scunthorpe fans asked not to dress as squirrels for Alan Knill return
• Former Scunthorpe manager injured in crash with rodent
• 'I was flying through the air – I could have died,' he says
It will be Knill's first return to Glanford Park in League Two since he was sacked in October 2012 and there has been speculation in the local press as to how he will be received.
One fan tweeted the club to ask: "Will anyone wearing any 'squirrel attire' be banned from entering the ground on Saturday?"
Scunthorpe United's twitter account replied: "No you won't be banned. However, the club would prefer it if you didn't dress up in 'squirrel attire'."
The Best Squirrel-Related Headline Of The Week. (Deadspin)
If you come across the headline "Scunthorpe fans asked not to dress as squirrels for Alan Knill return" tell me you're not clicking on that story. You are definitely clicking on that story. Why would people be dressing up as squirrels? Where do you get stuff to dress up as squirrels? Is dressing up like a squirrel a common thing in England?
Do people just go around dressing up as squirrels and officials have begun to take preventative measures?
You're clicking on that story.

Is Knill claiming the squirrel was at fault? Were there any witnesses to the crash, such as other squirrels? And did the squirrel involved in the crash survive?
It will be interesting to see whether real squirrels show up at the ballpark to protest."Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk."
