Minutes Applause / Silence
They used to be football related - now any and every tragedy (and sure, they are) is 'honoured' before kick offs.

Too many? Thoughts?

It's got out of hand and as said with the world as it is you could do it every week for SOMETHING
All very Scouse

Minutes silence/applause before games should be for players/managers of your club
What pisses me off is that we get all this faux grief before kick off for nothing to do with football .... yet in our last UP season we did nothing when Graham Paddon died and last season they did a bit on the screen for Francois Van der Elst at about 2.30 when the ground was half full if that.

ps Aug 31 is the 20th anniversary of Lady Di's death so presume England will play the following weekend in black armbands and walk out to Candle in the Wind before all bursting into tears.

We should be looking to fit all this shit in at half-time. It is, after all a dead 15 minutes that the club/media have to fill at no small cost.

Stand around clapping someone you've never met because something happened somewhere you're not near or at, or off to the bar for a pie & a pint. Soon show were people's priorities lie.

So if they had a minutes clapping for the Barcelona dead, does that mean it'll be done at all games this weekend?
If so, they might as well just do it as a matter of course for every fucking game, after all there are untimely and tragic deaths every week.

I would be a happy clapper In the event that there were an atrocity that ironed out Merkel

Not sure it is in the spirit of things or answers the question mind

That minute applause at the Burton Brum game was for the Spanish attack wasn't it? Why are they clapping the fucking morons?

Grief porn! It began as soon as Princess Di was mangled and is now incessant.
Grief used to be a deeply private and personal thing in this country. Now it's a 'look at me everyone, I'm mourning' thing.
And it's vomit inducing.
Thanks Blair.
