On tv yesterday morning, they said that the team were allowed to wear them on their track suits before the match, just not on the pitch. No team is allowed to wear anything like that. How would the English feel if, say, a team from a country they'd been at war with, wore such an emblem? Just saying what I heard. Personally, I think all countries should respect their fallen soldiers.

What?... Do you mean if Germany wore a Swastika?

Bit of a difference really isnt it?..... The Poppy symbolises soldiers from ALL sides who died (at least thats how I view it)

I feel as sorry for the German Soldiers who died in the mud and filth of Flanders, as I do for the Commonwealth Soldiers who did
