A friendly chat with Spencer on 4BC detailing an idea I had overnight to recreate  some posters from my time at QPRFC in London to possibly help combat ASB.
Main points:
- Stadium mgmt/ushers/security do a good job under pressure
- Our game days are very safe. 1 fan ruins it for us
- ASB is everywhere not just stadiums
The idea came to me during my time working at  @QPR in 2013 when there was this clever campaign around pyro http://ncefl.org.uk/news/league/2017/4447campaignwarnsagainstuseofpyrotechnics/
Anyway, just an idea. I used classic and iconic sports idioms to highlight how acting poorly might see a fan in trouble for making poor decisions and to be respectful and to think twice about actions on game days. The teacher in me just wants to see everyone have a fun and safe time on game days.
