Why do supporters have to resort to foul language to support their team?

As a father of three I'm pretty particular about those types of things and won't attend a Roughnecks game in seats that are close to your supporter group.

Few responses to that...

1. Your kids aren't a supporters responsibility.

2. Support group at Oneok should be not in 101 & 102, they should be isolated in the terrace for both sides of the argument. Both are entitled to their opinion and that's just fine.

3. Profanity isn't a big deal. Ever listen to a coach or player on the field?

I no longer go to Roughnecks games because of how the team is operated but #2 is the best solution to your post.

1 & 2:  Yes, which is why I take responsibility for my family and won't attend games in seats that are close to the supporter group.

3:  Profanity is a) defined subjectively and b) subjectively a "big deal."  Thankfully the layout at ONEOK Field keeps us so far from the field you can't hear the banter on the field.  Smiley

My question still remains for all supporters of all teams.  Why must a fan resort to foul language to support their team?  Is it possibly just an illustration of the vitriol that seems to be boiling over in many parts of our society?

Is this because the team stinks, or is there something else going on that I'm not aware of?  I only made the first two games and hope to make some later this month.  It sucks that they aren't any good though, it seems.

This Friday the first 1,500 fans get a bobblehead. It will also be televised on ESPN3 and all games are broadcast on live on the USL league website and youtube.

They don't invest in soccer at all past the head coach unless it's marketing. Friday will be the first home game I've ever missed for the franchise and I've traveled across the region to see them. It's a systematic problem from the ownership and front office. Unfair to the players and fans so I've decided to just support the local club in town. I could go in a lot of detail but what Rufnex says has a lot of validity. He seems crazy because it is crazy.

Not going but there are a lot of good youth players that will one day play for the US on the Galaxy II.

Honestly, it's alcohol usually. But also nobody really cares about the words. People give them too much power. I cuss usually when I'm frustrated at a play.

I think it's different now than it was back then. I think you misunderstand supporter groups though.

No, I understand them quite well.  Itís a booster club.  They still donít buy the majority of tickets if you look at the percentage of those sitting in their section vs. the rest of the stadium.

Majority of ticket holders appreciate them though. Booster club sounds weird.

It still sounds kinda weird, even though I was a member of the Oiler Boosters until that organization got disbanded.  It turned out being a contest for all the women to see how many of the players they could bed.  Pretty disgusting stuff.  Before that it served a purpose.
