Football fans have always been treated with contempt... even before the violence of the 70s, and if fans only heard half of the comments made by some profesional footballers about their fans, they would never bother to go again.

If you're not in the family section, and look suspiciously under 65, you're viewed as a potential thug, and more latterly even described as freaks and wierdos by people directly involved with the club. Great customer relations I must say.
I've been to the odd Corni ..... oops ... Penzance/Newlyn Pirates games in the last couple of years. What a difference, and what a pleasure ... thousands at the games, colourful, warm hearted, drinking is not a crime and such a great atmosphere.
Exeter must be in seventh heaven.... beating the all star Manchester City yesterday and taking on Barcelona next week. If that were in Penzance, the Pirates would fill a 15,000 stadium.

I'd be standing, then.

It's great for Exeter to have clubs like Leicester, Wasps etc down, not to mention the European competition they face.

Genuinely pleased for them.

I would rather be treated like an animal than waste any time watching fecking rugby. Exeter City Football Club, not any City of Exeter Club, simply because it is in the Premiership of its sport.

You can watch the Champions League winners at Stamford Bridge for £36.

£39 for a seat to watch Exeter at Rugby? That is laughable.

I was thinking the same as I went to get into the game at Wycombe. Before handing over my £22 after travelling nearly 100 miles to get to a football match on a wet and windy Tuesday night this middle aged father of three was subject to a search and pat down for the crime of, get this, wearing a padded jacket. Yes because sir you could have anything hidden in there. Just bonkers. At least the stewards were anonymous inside the ground. But it kind of puts you off and the fact is that football fans put up with the nonsense it's almost a badge of honour that they have to be treated this way. Shows how 'hard' we are I suppose.
