There is an element in the South Stand who spend the match loudly criticising and even abusing our players. Quite often I share their frustration, but keep it to myself. If our team is so bad, why do the Whingers come? The established ethos of the SS is to support noisily and criticise quietly. Can we please keep it that way.I would hate to feel obliged to move to the new North Stand and start building our reputation again.

Why do you assume those comments are confined to South Standers? it happens all around the ground.

Even without such comments, performance affects how the crowd reacts, I thought the south stand was markedly muted last night and not without reason.

So we should all place fingers on lips dick g and follow your lead on what you perceive to be accepted behaviour in the SS ? Swearing and personal abuse I will heartily agree with in terms of a no-no. However please don't lecture others about how their passion and support should manifest itself. If I feel the need to shout out "stupid" aimed at Joel as I did last night for a monumentally idiotic and inept piece of play...I will continue to do so. I don't need to ask your permission.

It is more than shouting "stupid". And I certainly am not suggesting that such behaviour is restricted to the South Stand. How can anyone suggest I have? I don't expect anybody to observe my standards or seek my approval.

I don't know if you are deliberately being obtuse of we genuinely have a misunderstanding so I will I attempt to spell it out for you.

You suggested you did not like the comments and behaviour around you in the South stand and was not within your understanding of the ethos so the SS. I then put it to you that you that such comments may not be confined to just the SS. You retorted how can anyone suggest that such behaviour was confined to the SS. I replied with your quote, unless the comments desisted you may feel obliged to move to the New North Stand to impose your values there.

you reply So? QED just read your own post

This is getting very silly and it stops now. The New North Stand has yet to be built. I had rather hoped this thread would be about behaviour not what I did or didn't post. I'm off to visit Santa. Merry Crimble to you all.
