It should be a choice.

Freedom of choice is what people fought for.

As always, only club in Britain who won’t wear one. Rodgers wore one at Liverpool.. won’t wear one today.

If it’s freedom of choice, are Celtic telling Rodgers not to wear one? Or did Liverpool force him to wear one?

Really can't stand the self appointed poppy police! (and the between the lines bit off this particular question is unsavoury of you ask me)

If it's a personal choice then it shouldn't be part of any teams football shirt (because if the uniform has one on it, then it's not a choice really is it)

Wars were fought and people died for the right for people to have the freedom to make their own decisions. Wear a poppy or not, just be glad you have the freedom to decide.

And there's was me thinking this was a FOOTBALL forum. Admin, should this not be on Off Topic? Poppies have hee haw to do with football, in my humble one.

I agree it's a choice thing - it's nobody's business but your own whether you wear a poppy or not and no one should put others under pressure or call them out one way or the other.

it became a football thing GG as soon as it was decided to put it on football shirts in the uk and we started laying wreaths in the centre spot, etc

in the same way that any other topic would be if we started to add insignia and performing ceremonies for other charitable, political and/or social causes

I get what you're saying mate, but would it not be more appropriate in Off Topic. What will we get next on the football forum? The cost of a half time pie? :-)

I posted the initial comment because like it or not football and society cross over at many points.

I agree the poppy is a matter of choice.

Good on Rodgers for choosing to wear one.

Livi did well and deserved their point.

Keep up mate, wars weren't fought for that reason....the only reason wars are fought is to protect the interests of the ruling classes

That's an extremely naive and simple understanding.

Please forget about who will or who won't wear a poppy and step back and try and even imagine what all those poor brave souls suffered during the ww1 conflict which is what the 11/11/11 is all about its a remembrance and a time to reflect 100 years this year and how appropriate that today is the 11th Lest We Forget
