Isn't this the crux of the matter?
I will state now I am no expert and haven't read all of the evidence placed before the coroners court or indeed the latest criminal court.
From what I have read there were reports of crushing at the gates outside so what was he to do? If there had been deaths as a result of his inaction he would have been blamed. In hindsight he has said on opening the outside gates he should have closed the gate ( I'm not even sure if there was one) to the area behind the goal.

As I said I'm no expert but should the blame lie with:
1 the original architect of the stadium.
2 the person who decided the ground was a suitable venue for the match.
3 the ticket allocation? It seems there were more tickets sold than could be accommodated.
4 crowd control? Perhaps there should have been an "outer ring"

In the 70's I used to go to football every other week, it was a different era, many a time I was swept along in a crowd with my feet off the ground.
Many occasions it was considered "funny" when the crowd surged forward when you were packed behind the goal.
I know now what many people will think, with the benefit of age and experience but many of us enjoyed the tribal feel of following your team and preventing fans from the opposing side taking your stand.
In hindsight might have been wrong but that's what we did.
Mods and Rockers before me ( skin head) did it at famously, Brighton.

I am not trying to make light of the fact that 96 people lost their lives when it should never have happened but so many factors contributed to the end result I do think it is wrong to try and lay the blame at the feet of one individual.

I do accept that the feelings of those directly involved will differ in that they feel somebody should be held responsible.
