Poppycock

Home » News » Poppycock

We applaud the English and Scottish Football Associations in going ahead with their plans for players to wear poppies on their armbands in their match on Armistice Day, 11th November. The two FAs have a history of remembering and respecting those who lost their lives in wars. FIFA, the international football body, have threatened to impose sanctions if they wore the poppies as it does not allow any symbols that are political, religious or commercial. We support the stance of the two FAs in that the poppy has no political, religious or commercial significance. To us, FIFA's stance is poppycock. The FA's stance shows respect.
