No Swearing Policy

I think I need to explain my earlier post. I recognise the reasons behind the chairman introducing the policy, and I sincerely hope there are lots of new supporters who could be in a position to be insulted.
Where I'm coming from is that I work hard in a mundane 9 to 5 job all week, for not a lot of pay. Football is a great way to unwind and let off steam and sometimes I can overstep the mark. For example, Hornchurch away last season would have got me a verbal warning, red card and lifetime ban all in the same 90 minutes.
So I am not criticising the policy, I am just doubting my own ability to comply. I know that not being able to articulate yourself without recourse to profanity may be seen as a sign of ignorance, and if that is me then so be it (nearly 50 years of being on the terraces may have conditioned me irreversibly).
To sum up, I am not going to walk away, I just hope I can support our wonderful club in the right way.
A final thought, some of these new young supporters might teach us oldies a thing or two about swearing.
