It's not terrible really when you apply a bit of perspective, Argyle are obviously less tolerant of bad behavior than other clubs but not a bad thing however out of an average home crowd of plus ten thousand fans which over a season must be more than twenty thousand people we only had just over twenty people that couldn't behave themselves.
