Poppies

There’s too many people on both sides of the debate who seem totally incapable of shutting the f*** up about why they do or do not wear a poppy. They take something that should be about remembering others, and make it all about themselves. As you say, it is beyond boring.

Including this thread, that was about a badge, until it was hijacked by the sob story mob with their self indulgent pity parties.

Wear a poppy or don't, no justification required!

for me its not "inherently political", it has other meaning to me, maybe look inwards why you think its "inherently political" - that's why! shouldn't you direct that question to the club??

If you don’t think the poppy is a political symbol I suggest having a go at growing a brain, fella.

Are these commissioned by the club? It would seem to me they’re generic pins with fitba team badges added on to them to somewhat cynically aim for some easy target audience, the excellent “desperate to show respect middle-aged male”. Find it pretty crass tbh.

Who’s ‘desperate’ to show respect? You either wear one as a mark or respect or you pay your respects without one, or you don’t pay your respect at all due to some strongly-held and misguided anti-political statement or other.

I will still wear mine with pride

You already said that earlier on. Not a thing wrong with that, but why can’t you just wear it with pride instead of feeling the need to constantly tell everyone that you’re wearing it with pride.

Why do you feel the need to say that

Starts earlier every year; over commercialised with some gaudy and tacky adornments; a sense of almost enforced mass participation with people ( and organisations) trying to outdo each other; and is now so far removed from its original intent. 

Sound familiar?

Rangers use it as a display to show how British they are. Watching Sportscene there and it appears they actually had an army tank at Ibrox today, firing fake shots, to remember people who died in service. Very unusual but typical point-scoring behaviour.

The Way Rangers have hijacked rememberance really pisses me off. It’s all about getting one up on the Celtic support. As for the Killie/Poppy badges are these authorised by the British Legion? How much goes to that fund.? Looks a bit fishy to me.

There’s a few closet Celtic fans on this subject 

I don't wear a poppy and never have... I'm also not a Celtic fan.

Wear one or don't wear one, it's not exclusive to two teams and it doesn't mean not having one is being used it for political or religious point scoring.

Every f**king year 'poppygate' happens and every year it causes a pointless argument. At game Saturday I didn't even notice who had and hadn't one around me.

Sorry KA, I should have read the original post better. Good that the cash goes to poppy Scotland.
