AJ you did the correct thing by not confronting that group. I think you would find that all you would get is abused and heckled which is especially likely considering those blokes would be on the piss and trying to prove who is the man of the pack by trying to act tough by responding. Things would have remained the same as before your chat with them, you woudn't have solved anything.

As for bad behavior by those blokes, you would be in a much better position to judge then I would however ive found the folk at Frankston extremely friendly and always a ground that is a pleasure to attend. Staff are excellent, fans are jovial but friendly (I remember on one occasion one of the fans shook my hand and thanked me for coming back to their function and apologised for getting stuck in their ex hero Khan Heretaku). The only sour thing I can say about the fans was one of them didn't want to fullfill his bet with one of my mates by buying him a 6 pack when Port beat Frankston - un Australian (what was that Frankston boy thinking that they could beat Port) !!!! As I say as a outsider i wouldn't be the best judge of what those fans are like however I can say with alot of confidence that the vast majority of outsiders / opposition fans don't find those guys ill behaved and off putting, they are far from being ARIS soccer hooligans!

In regards to people expecting you to be feral at opposition grounds i'm going to be blunt here - I think thats all in your head and perhaps a opinion formed through Frankston being on the rear end of jokes in the Melbourne community. I have yet to meet a Frankston fan that i thought was a d!@#head. Last time we played a couple of them joined us on our table in the after match function and came to the local pub with us for several hours, a couple that I have got to know a little better like Robbo and his old man I believe are far from being of bad character, if anything they are gentlemen.
