Good to see they are doing the correct thing this weekend.

Motherwell Football Club will commemorate Remembrance Day by wearing special poppy shirts against Dundee on Saturday.

The Steelmen have a close relationship with the Armed Forces and in particular The Royal Regiment of Scotland (both 1 & 2 SCOTS) who receive 30 season tickets for soldiers in Scotland and four season tickets for each of the soldier’s families.

This weekend, members of the 1 & 2 SCOTS, who have only recently returned from duty in Afghanistan, will lead the team onto the park and form part of the minutes silence to pay respect to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

They will also parade around the pitch at half-time and are sure to get a warm welcome from both sets of supporters.

Sorry but they get no praise from me. They are a shower of bitter inbreds.

Remember the war dead should be the least people do this weekend, giving people a pat of the back for doing so shows how far society has declined over the decades.

It's a sad state of affairs

I am sure none of them will care a jot what you think. In fact I couldn't care less what you think either. The internet is full of keyboard hardmen.

Dundee are playing their part by wearing poppies on their shirts.

Hope the servicemen have a good day and know how we all admire and appreciate them.

Shouldn't this simply be the norm at every club ?

The fact Scotland as a society has declined to such an extent that we need to praise people attending football matches for rememeber the people that gave their lives for them to breathe fresh air every day merits a pat on the back is frankly nothing short of a disgrace.

Any club refusing to honour the war dead should have their game suspended.

It is the least they can do,the media making out that its a massive decision when really they shouldn't have to think about it.
The media make it look like Savco are doing the normal thing so anybody doing different deserves special praise.

THE DEE BACK POPPYSCOTLAND
Dundee midfielder Jim McAlister shows off the Dundee shirt with poppy which the team will wear for Saturday's match against Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday to raise awareness of the Poppy Scotland appeal.

Jim was joined by Private Dean Taylor, Private David McNicoll of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, Dundee CEO Scot Gardiner and recruiting Captain Bob Reid in showing off the shirt - Privates Taylor and McNicoll deploy on Tuesday for a tour in Afghanistan

Scot Gardiner told us "Everyone at Dundee FC is delighted to show our support to Poppy Scotland and the players will proudly and respectfully wear the poppy on our jerseys on Saturday against Motherwell.

"We would encourage all of our fans to share our pride and respect for the Country's Armed Forces and support the fund in whatever way they can."

Fraser Bedwell, Head of Marketing for Poppyscotland said “We are extremely grateful to Dundee FC for their support of the 2012 Scottish Poppy Appeal. We rely entirely on public donations to enable us to provide life changing support to the Armed Forces community and the support the club have given us will make a huge difference to this year’s Appeal”.

For over 90 years the Scottish Poppy Appeal has been raising funds to support Servicemen and women. Sadly the demand on Poppyscotland’s services is as great as it has ever been, and increasing all the time. Whether someone has suffered a catastrophic battlefield injury, is haunted by horrific events they witnessed on the frontline, or is simply struggling to adjust to life outside the Armed Forces, Poppyscotland provides practical help.

In the past year alone Poppyscotland has been able to offer more than £750,000 in immediate assistance to veterans, helping with emergency home repairs, temporary accommodation and mobility aids. Poppyscotland also offers retraining grants and business loans schemes for veterans leaving the Armed Forces to help them embark on civilian careers. Since April 2011 a further £1 million has been given to 20 organisations providing specialist support for the Armed Forces community, including £250,000 towards a new veterans housing project and £60,000 towards support services for veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

These initiatives and many others like them are simply not possible without your continued support. Please give as much as you can to the Scottish Poppy Appeal. Your support is unforgettable. For more information visit www.poppyscotland.org.uk.

How many grounds will be unable to have a minute's silence and instead have a minute's applause?

Why is this not questioned in our mhedia?

It's a completely inappropriate manner of showing respect to the fallen but somehow is ignored.

All this nonsense about it being "ra shellik wae, so it is" - we all know why they can't have a minute's silence
