Turkish FA bans flares, Eskisehirspor fans give them special flare-packed tifo response

Turkish football fans have probably kept many flare companies in business over the years, but when the Turkish FA banned them from stadiums, their brand of pyromaniac fun seemed to be over.

The fans of Super Lig club Eskisehirspor had other ideas, though. In response to the decision, they unfurled a giant trollface banner equipped with holes just so they could light flares and hold them throughout the banner like flaming Swiss cheese. The one-word question on the banner: "Problem?"

The banner was then rolled back up, the flares were extinguished and everyone carried on singing and having fun. Brilliant.

Thanks to @coreydesharnais and twelve point for the tip!
