Put it this way, if I'd turned up as a 12 year old in 1999 at Claremont Road and encountered the eerie silence that home games at Earlsmead or Vale Farm are like now, I'd never have bothered coming back. Yes, I heard all kinds of swear words from all kinds of people behind the goal and even sat in the stand, and that was accepted as part and parcel of what traditionally is a working man's sport, if anything sometimes a crowd's anger ADDS to the atmosphere, when people are fired up because of a bad decision or they feel "wronged" by something, it's only natural that a few naughty words are going to be part of that.

So when the club is ostracising it's existing supporters, who have spent a lot of money over the years, merely for being passionate about the team, it sticks in the throat.

The decision has been made, I hope your kids never have to hear any naughty words amongst the silence at Earlsmead, let's see how getting rid of the "handful of supporters who don't know how to behave" really affects the club, both financially and atmosphere wise.
