Bideford Football Fans Have You Signed Up to RESPECT F.C. yet?

You may have seen the advert on telly for Respect FC.; the one where a football Dad is cursing at his son's ref, then at the kiddie's entertainer at a children's birthday party. It is a funny ad but the message is clear - "Stand up to the Gobby Morons and take back the game we all love." "Club together to beat the ugly side of football."

Grassroots football is all about developing skilfull players from an early age but maybe we should be training our future football supporters too.

Many of you in Bideford who support your local team Bideford AFC may be used to the verbal abuse which has become so much part of watching a football match these days.  But have you witnessed it at junior matches?  Maybe you are put off watching a match or letting your children attend or take part because of abusive parents?

Maybe none of the above ... but don't let that stop you supporting the campaign.  Sign up to Respect F.C. now and for every sign up to the campaign the FA are pledging £1 to help save the beautiful side of football.

    I think the behaviour of some football fans is atrocious. The language and insults which have become acceptable at a football match would certainly not be tolerated elsewhere. I hope people pass on the message of Respect F.C. and hope that good manners are spread to the sporting arena as well as all other areas of life.
