Football fans offensive


I would like to register my displeasure with the conduct of some individuals at the recent WLU playoff game. These individuals were using foul language throughout the game and in one case that I observed verbally abused a Western fan with offensive language.

Moreover, there were several distasteful signs displayed and a seemingly popular t-shirt was worn disparaging Western with thinly disguised foul language on it.

If these were WLU students, you represent WLU at these events and perceptions of WLU as an institution by the general public are partially formed by your behavior. Please keep this in mind when attending such events.
