It has clearly backfired on the club, unless it was the club's intention to cost itself revenue and vocal support at home games.

The language is part of creating an atmosphere, it takes place at every football match I've ever been at, no coincidence either that some of the best atmospheres have been amongst the sweariest as well. It isn't a deliberate thing "I'm gonna go to the game and swear at everyone" but more that I would get so emotionally involved in the game and passionately wanting the right result that self control becomes difficult. I wish someone had done this in 1999 and then I'd have never bothered coming back, I didn't jump on the offended bus as a 12 year old hearing people swear, its part and parcel as far as I'm concerned.

There will probably be a lot less swearing involved in the away games I go to now, for the simple fact that I care a lot less about the club, the results, or anything else to do with it, thanks to how the club chooses to speak to it's long serving supporters.
