#PoppyGate - FIFA Ignored

As per the BBC:
"The Football Associations of England and Scotland say they will defy a ban on players wearing poppies when the teams meet on Armistice Day.

The FAs will let players wear black armbands with poppy emblems and are willing to accept any punishment. 

Fifa general secretary Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura told BBC Sport "any kind of sanction" could follow.
World football's governing body prohibits political, religious or commercial messages on shirts."
I am sad to say that an awful lot of crap is spewed forth about poppies (whatever colour they are) these days.

The simple facts are these:

1 It is not compulsory to wear a poppy.

2 It is not compulsory to wear a red poppy.

3 People have fought and died for the concept of free speech and freedom, as such we can best honour those who fought and died by making our own decisions as to how to honour them (with or without poppies) and not be bullied into wearing them or nor wearing them.

4 FIFA can fuck off, so long as the players have the freedom of choice to wear the poppy armbands or not then FIFA should keep its nose out.

5 Poppies are not religious or political symbols, and should not be hijacked by priests or politicians for their own ends.

    Well put, Ken! You sum things up very nicely.

    For once, our leaders appear to be doing the right thing and, instead of figuratively saying, "How high?" when told to jump, appear to have decided to ignore this dictat. Credit, where credit is due!

    I agree that people should not be bullied into wearing poppies, but unfortunately if we are left to honour the dead ‘in our own way’ then it will not be long until they are not honoured at all.

    The history of the 2 World Wars is no longer taught in schools. I suppose it is not seen as politically correct.

    Further evidence of the ignorance of the younger generation was evident today on the news, when the young black woman representing FIFA said that; ‘All countries have wars……..My country has had wars…………Why should we make an exception for a war that only affected one country?’

    If the children were actually educated about these matters then I feel that many would chose to wear a poppy with pride, without the need for coaxing.

    The picture of the poppy appears to have been left/right reversed as the leaf should point to the 11 O'Clock position to represent the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
