THE TEAM SHOULDN'T BE PUNISHED FOR ITS FANS BEHAVIOUR.
Why should the club be punished if the ones who aren't behaving are its fans? The team shouldn't suffer for something they didn't do. The punishment should be for its fans, not for them... But, trully, there shouldn't be any punishment because bad behaviour is often down to a small group of fans, why should the other fans be punished? They may get more annoyed which would cause more problems. Realistically, what can the club do to make the fans behave well? Clubs already try to restrict the behaviour of their fans, for example not having alcohol in the ground; this means we do not have to punish them more to stop it happening. They know they need a good reputation to attract fans. The way their fans behave should not affect their position in the league and their success. Existing punishments (by the police) are effective, so they already have a lesson, and know the right thing is to behave well... The rest is their choice.

Most of the fans are made up of the parents of the team players. Sometimes the kids may ask their parents to be more supportive. Sometimes, the parents may go WAY overboard with this. Because of this, the team, or at least part of the team should be punished. The fans misbehaving is the fault of both sides.
