Football hooligans

Sir: I wholeheartedly agree with Gillie Russell (letter, 18 June). The laddish football culture exemplified by They think It's All Over must be a conspiracy to corrupt the youth of our nation, by the very same evil forces that brought us such dangerous movements as rock'n'roll. Neither was I surprised to hear that the "if you don't think I'm funny you're a prude" attitude of Rory McGrath was undermining the moral values of teenagers. Good grief! Parents sounding "old-fashioned and boring" to their adolescent offspring! Whatever next?
