F I F A and the POPPY

November 1, 2016

I couldn't believe what I was hearing on the News when I heard that ! Now the FA are going cap-in-hand to ask for permission / special dispensation for our players to wear the Poppy - you couldn't make it up. No doubt IF the Royal British Legion offered to sponsor & pay into the corrupt coffers of  FIFA then they (FIFA) would agree to it ! Sometimes I think this world stinks,  with all this perceived political correctness, which is usually just another name for making money. John (JKW)

These cretins are an insult to all the combatants in both world wars,, the POPPY is a symbol of SACRIFICE, and not of celebration of WAR, so they are wrong on all they are saying. I know that the FA will try to modify this ban, if they can, but all I would say is that FIFA are totally wrong, there are more countries within FIFA than Germany and GB, (England and Scotland), so they are punishing TWO countries, yet letting all other countries gloat. The POPPY is a symbol of self sacrifice, and NOT the glorification of war itself. The poppy itself represents the recognition of the sacrifice of ALL the nations who fought and lost men and women , maimed or killed in protecting the world, of course FIFA are stupid, they have alienated millions and millions of people all over the world who lost family members doing their duty for humanity itself, and nothing will change that remembrance. Perhaps these loons would prefer to use coils of barbed wire in place of the eponimous POPPY. It is a REMEMBRANCE, not a glorification of war itself. Shame on FIFA. Can we not remove FIFA and replace it with something more progressive and free of bias and stpidity???? And if I could, it would be barbed wire I would wrap FIFA in and NOT roses, Barstewards, all of their elite moronic culture is degraded for all time now.

And may I say that the majority of FIFA dominated soccer matches are more like battlefields these days, so FIFA should close up shop. slither away, and let a new and understanding governing body be formed, NOW, to properly protect and enhance a great, world wide sporting game to reappear from the ashes of FIFA....

John if you change two letters in the word correctness ( ie ),   ec  and replace them with (up), you end up with the word that epitomises FIFA. I am not a supporter of Theresa May but she hit the nail on the head, saying they need to get their own house in order, also watched F A guy Clark giving his lacklustre opinion on what should happen. Then watched Chris Coleman Welsh manager, then Gordon  Strachan giving their weak willed answers, N.I. are discussing this and will give their opinion tomorrow. where has the spine of these people gone. They make me sick stand up and be counted you lily livered upstarts, stand up like the people, these POPPIES represent and say the poppy WILL  be displayed and not on an armband, but emblazoned on the shirt as it was on the Everton shirts last weekend. Absolutely disgusted with the reactions of the Home Countries.

Spineless, ignorant and a million miles out of focus, the bloody lot of these FIFA cretins want shooting by firing squad ASAP, for the good of ALL sports, cos if this carries on, NO sport will be safe, no people will be remembered ever after. Apart of course, from lunatic authorities such as FIFA and the EU, as starters. Let us reform who WE the people want to oversee all activities between sporting countries. and not lunatics like FIFA and co. They are a disgraceful shame upon the rest of world sporting activities.How about USSR? THEY would soon put FIFA in its place if they threatened USSR the way they are stopping us from remembering the sacrifices freely made by REAL humans, whatever their country. FIFA are bigotted, obviously with no human appreciation of honesty and sacrifice. I suggest that all countries now tell FIFA to go forth instantly, and never raise their slimy presence ANYWHERE in this world again. We should also tell these loons to vanish now, before we sack them all by popular vote. They are all money grabbing paracites, and not really in touch with sanity..... BAR and STEWARDS comes to mind....
