I would like to start a thread on the abusive behaviour of some of our fans and the unnecessary heckling that gets leveled on the players from behind the bench and in the stands directly above their locker room door.
It seems that some people feel that the price of a ticket allows them to dump all over the plyers of their choice when the game is not going the way that they want.Having played sports my whole life, I can say that not one of those players wants to lose.So,nobody could feel worse than the player themself that commits an error to cost his team.
Most of the time the hecklers are drunk beyond the point of common sense or censorship.I or others like myself take our children to watch a game.Is this how we want our children to see a game of football at Ivor Wynne Stadium?
We,as fans,have a responsibility to act as ambassaders to the city of Hamilton.We expect management to bring in players to make this club competitive,but are we giving the current players a good feeling about the city and it's fans with this type of behaviour.
I started this thread to get some positive input.Maybe some solutions can be found because this situation is not healthy for anyone.I would love to have input from players, coachs ,management and fans so that we can get some perspective and more importantly dialogue from bothsides.
