The perfect chant at Republic FC matches

Published: Monday, Jul. 14, 2014 - 12:07 pm

Re "Chant can be a slur problema" (Marcos Breton, July 13): I was at the July 7 Republic FC game sitting with the Tower Brigade Battalion as we tried to make it clear we were not in support of using the P-word. To me it makes absolutely no sense to continue using a word that has a mixed interpretation when there are perfectly acceptable -- and more motivational -- options.

I'd like to suggest "futbol!" It has the same number of syllables, takes the same time to say, and is a wonderful recognition of the history of the game that is no taking our city by storm.

Let's agree on something positive, something we can all rally around -- just like our team.
