Have stewards enforce the stadium protocol which may end up with them being chucked out.

Because I believe footy plays an important cathartic role in the lives of so many I would have to say leave it as it is.

Are there really that many adults that can't handle such nasty stuff? And would they ever go near a football match if they couldn't?

As for the kids .... they will hear swearing in society whatever anyone might try to prevent it. At football, for the far greater part, at least they will see strong emotions and hear bad language used in contexts that rarely continue into violence?
