    I don't care if people choose to wear one or not, it's their choice.

    Not any more!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Millions upon millions of people died defending peoples' right to decide these sort of things for themselves

    So no, I don't care whether he wears one or not

    ...and it isn't just a case of not wearing a poppy, the terrorist **** actively promotes The IRA with comments like this:

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/fo...-IRA-song.html

    Those cowardly bastards killed many innocent people in the name of their cause which seems to be mostly about the freedom to run their fucking mafia in peace.

    As someone said earlier it’s his right not to wear a poppy & I don’t have an issue with that, what I have an issue with is that he’s a pro IRA Irish republican so yes I’ll be booing the terrorist loving prick & I’ll also be booing that tosspot Gary Rowett

    Me and the Mrs have bought our poppies in the village, but choose when or where to wear them.
    Mrs S has a B.E.M. for services to the community down in Dorset.
    My family gave up several members in both the First and Second World Wars.
    I hope no-one tries to guilt trip me if they see me out and about without my poppy.
    It leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth with all the guilt-tripping that goes on if you don't wear a poppy.

    I’m going to the game dressed as a poppy and draped in a Union Jack. I won’t be out-poppied. Anyone I see without one will be getting a Chinese burn. Be warned.

    Being forced to wear one is precisely why a lot of people don't want to. It goes against everything soldiers in the world wars fought for.

    I find that a strange attitude, you clearly support the cause or you wouldn't have contributed so why wouldn't you want to promote the cause by wearing your poppy at every opportunity just for a week?

    I suspect that this attitude is quite popular amongst the under 30's who quite possibly don't know anyone who lived through the world wars let alone fought in one.
    It is important to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom, a huge proportion unwillingly.

    It's quite possible to do that without going look at me, look at me, I'm remembering them.

    I'm quite happy to buy one to donate to the cause, but not that bothered about wearing it.

    It's a cause that is dying out amongst the young and wearing one keeps it relevant, even more so when worn by a young person.
    Why does everything have to be a battle?

    My first home game for yonks due to relocating so looking forward to this game.

    No problem with him not wearing the poppy but find his sectarian views outdated. Are the club doing anything as it’s armisr weekend and if so what will McClean do when it’s happening?

    How many of your mates donate or wear a poppy?
    Not having a go but you are exactly the age group that I'm refering too, as are my kids who will be getting a reminder tonight.

    Is it ?

    They must be blind because it's in your face everywhere nowadays for about a month, so much more than it used to be when I was young.

    I think so, it's not a matter of seeing but more understanding I believe, no war no problem.
