Minutes silence or applause
 
 
Listening to the Burton v Forest game and they requested a minutes applause following the Leicester air crash. I think the first time I heard the applause was at Fratton when George Best died. Personally I prefer a bit of respectful silence. But then I am 108. Thoughts?

There should be a minute's silence at Leicester's next game, that's all.

The only reason we have a minute's applause is because some mongs can't be trusted to keep shtum for a full 60 seconds.

I was proud to ruin Dead Ted's minute silence with his family all in attendance.

When Rick croaks, he respectfully requests a minutes sexual grunting and groaning during the 9th minute of the following home game.

To be honest I thought a minute's silence for remembrance Day at the weekend just gone is a bit silly. It's still October and was over two weeks before remembrance Sunday.

For me though I think it depends on the situation as to whether it should be applause or silence. In the instance of the Leicester chairman I'd say silence, not sure who makes the decision though.

What the fvuck does Leicester's foreign owner dying have to do with us? What would we be clapping for?

the problem was that we were getting a minute silence before too many games and the black armband might as well have been part of the kit at one time.
A few silences a season is plenty or it loses its impact. The minutes applause at a particular minute works very well as seen for our pirate.
As it happens the fixture computer has left us without a home game for a month so no minutes silence for Remembrance which is sad.

Literally only Leicester's next game should have a minutes silence. WTF does it have to do with us? Does the whole of football have to mourn because a rich bloke who's name you didn't even know until last Saturday died?

They had a minute silence at H & W tonight for it. Coincided with someone letting off fireworks in a garden a couple of hundred yards away..

Like everything else this gesture has been rendered meaningless by over-use. If it had been reserved for very well respected people directly associated with the club, that would have been fine.

Sadly, there is very rarely a match without a minute of silence or applause these days and the gesture has, like so many other things, become cheapened.

Hollow gestures are worse than no gesture at all imo.

I'll tell you what it has to do with us.
We are part of the #footballfamily
The same family that sees managers and players jump ship at the sniff of an extra quid. The family of managing egos and social media accounts. Pretty standard everyday family. Stick it where the sun don't shine. A foreign businessman ffs.
Leicester can do what they like to mourn. But a minutes silence at the Hawks game?? Ridiculous

The football family bit only really applies because it happened at a football stadium on a match day. If the guy had died in his sleep of a heart attack then obviously it would not be marked b any other than his own club.

Personally I think a minutes applause for the pilot who saved a few fans lives is quite appropriate.

So now we're delaying the match so we can spend a minute gormlessly clapping a dead helicoptor pilot whose name none of us know? Where do we draw the line?

I recall two different minutes' silence/applause at Fratton in recent years that XXXXXXed me off no end.

The first was for some FA suit nobody ever heard of, presumably just because he had connections with Liverpool, and as everyone knows Liverpool things are much more important than anyone else's for some reason.

The second was the one for Fabrice Muamba WHO WASN'T EVEN FÚCKING DEAD for XXXXXX's sake.

'pilot who saved a few fans lives'

Have you seen the video? The way he skilfully crashed the completely out of control helicopter was amazing.
Or...being an experienced pilot he knew the aviation rules and regs that he must ascend and exit a 'built up' area over a particular predetermined route.

But that doesn't fit under the grief porn umbrella that all who died are heroes etc

That may be rubbish but I fully expect it to be the case. I'm no aviator though

There are far too many minutes' applause/silence every season in my view.
Keep it for Armistice Day but not every Tom,Dick or Harriett. If we do it for everyone there won't be enough games.

The pilot may have had a heart attack, aneurism or whatever. We just don’t know.

There should be a minutes applause at every football match up and down the country every week, in recognition of everyone managing to drive to the ground carefully and not causing a motorway pile up.

It's a great story that the pilot steered the belicopter to crash on an empty bit of land. It's also total fantasy. That helicopter was completely out of control, no way could the pilot affect it's direction. It was chance, pure and simple.

As for the minutes silence, at Leicester yes, elsewhere no.
