Fifa decrees that shirts should not carry political, religious or commercial messages
"Such initiatives would open the door to similar initiatives from all over the world, jeopardising the neutrality of football,"So before the England game there will be a wreath layed on the pitch, a minutes silence and then the players will wear a black armband and can wear a poppy on their training kit. not enough???
"Wearing a poppy is an act of huge respect and national pride." says Cameron
Oh right its not just remeberence of people who died fighting a despicable and ignorable war its also a matter of national pride? why are we obsessed with national pride? the war was shameful, remembering it with a love of country stance is deplorable. its very very sad that all those people died during such a horrible period in our history but just sometimes lets get things into perspective... this is about a football match.
Oh and erm... c'mon England!
