 Minutes silence
Topic Originator: kozmanout  
Date:   Sat 17 Sep 19:05

One of the poorest observed that I can remember, loads of noise from both sets of fans with a definite F the Queen coming from the away end towards the end.

So what, it was purely political so in a crowd of 7000 you’re bound to get some dissenters who want to make a point. If it was for someone connected with either club I wouldn’t feel this way, but it is what it is.

It barely lasted half a minute; probably one of the better decisions the ref made all afternoon.

Not a single minute silence around Scotland today would have been perfect. & a lot worse happened around the country than that at EEP.

The club has just tweeted "Another outstanding support this afternoon #DAFC fans" along with 4 photos. 3 of which are of the NW section. Seems like the club disagree with you.

Tbh I don’t think they were even aware it had started due to the fact they could not see due to the display or hear due to the poor tannoy system.
Anyway thank god all that nonsense is over with. I happily sat down and switched of for the 34 seconds that it lasted.

Unfortunately, some people just don`t know how to, or are simply not willing to behave themselves. Fortunately, most of these people are just daft wee laddies who will grow out of it.

As I said on here during the week, I`m no fan of the monarchy and did not wish to take part in any tribute to the queen today. For that reason, I simply sat quietly during the minute`s silence - quite a few others around me did likewise. Not difficult.

Agree with this apart from the sitting quietly bit. I stood and paid my respects although I`m no royalist.
As regards the idiots in the North West that couldn`t be respectful, I`m reminded of the old saying "nivver drink on an empty heid".

Let’s not forget why they are there in the first place. Section L closed due to them being unable to behave so now congregate at opposite side. Clearly big gaps of free seats in a “sold out” stand meaning large overcrowding.

Some knicker wetting on here. At the end of the day it was always going to be controversial in Scotland regardless.

As I said earlier I genuinely believe that the noise coming from the NW was due to the fact that they were so boisterous that they did not hear the announcement……..or did not care……I for one understand that.

I personally could not pay respect to an individual or a family that did not care a jot about the citizens of the country.

Thank god all this garbage will soon be over……

And that’s why I don’t like minute silence… you either break it (and labelled a disgrace) or by default you observe it wether you wish to or not.

like others I sat quietly looking at the line ups for the game on my phone, albeit grudging that my silence would be interpreted as me paying respect

Yes indeed. I stood up then immediately sat down. Maybe you were sat next to me…before you stood up, then sat down again…after 34 cringeworthy seconds…

Don`t be a prat. It`s not about making a point - it`s about the choice of whether to participate or not. The only ones looking for attention today were those who deliberately disrupted the minute`s silence. The middle ground between that, and observing the silence impeccably is simply to sit quietly.

This is still (supposedly) a free country. People shouldn`t be judged on something as trivial as choosing not to observe a minute`s silence while remaining respectful.

I happily missed it all as I was being sent from the NW turnstiles to the NE turnstiles for no discernible reason at the time. An utterly baffling decision from whoever was in charge, seeing as we all ended up in the NW anyway, but it avoided the awkwardness of trying to sign "a bridie please" during the silence.

Everyone`s entitled to an opinion, but I`d hoped there would have been a bit of respect shown today.

Whether you like the monarchy or not is a bit late as it`s been around for 1,000 years.

Sure you may like a change of direction but that`s a question to go forward with. I would say that with the crowds out in Scotland last Sunday there is more people interested than some people think.

Apparently, around 30,000 people queued up to see the Queen lying in state in Edinburgh. For comparison purposes, Murrayfield holds 67,000.

A decent amount of those people will have been tourists, or people travelling up specially from the North of England.

And some went round the queue more than once....

In fairness, most minutes silences at football games tend to be for people associated either with one of the clubs playing, or the game in general.

Outside of that, it would only tend to happen for someone very prominent or high profile, like for example a head of state.

I can`t remember too many silences over the years being held for non-football people, however I may stand to be corrected on that...

Like many on here I believe that football is an escape from the inescapable reality of everyday life. It`s the one place we can come together despite our differences.

To be forced to acknowledge something outside of the football world is an imposition. As Socks explained about a week ago, when we worship something outside of DAFC we are lackeys to the establishment line.

Pretty much. My view would be it should be reserved for the death of a player or manager.

What we`re now seeing in the UK is a mixture of guilting people into mourning and people competing to see who is the most mournful.

Today the ref added 6 minutes on to ensure we played a minute for every year if the Queen`s life. Too far 😉

I stayed silent simply out of respect to someone dying and the 6000 odd people who stood up for it today. I think booing it is pathetic and cheap. The excuse that its an anti monarchy protest is bollox, seeing as this will be their only protest until the next one dies. Well done.

What makes today even worse is I don`t think it was even an anti-monarchy protest. I think it was just people being fannies.

The silent majority also didn’t bother their backside with the queen and recent events either.

As for today, whether they are in section L or the cage or wherever - there will always be an unhealthy amount of ballsacks in our support.

The thing that worried me the most about today, and they better get it sorted, is the amount of items thrown at the linesman from that area. Watched by Police Scotlands finest, I would suspect a few knocks on the door are on their way.

A minutes silence should be for players or staff who were involved at one of the two clubs involved, or at a push someone from the national team.

There should be a minutes silence at the game closest to November 11th Rememberence Day - not one for every club to have at their home game nearest meaning it stretches on for weeks.

There is a National Silence at 8pm tonight for anyone who wants to have a moment of reflection for the Queen, so there is no need to have one at any other time or place.

It should be quite straightforward but for some reason people don`t want to upset the Daily Mail crowd these days

You can’t say no to minute silences for non football related matters, and then in the same sentence promote one for another non football matter?

For me it’s either one or the other…

there’s already a time set for that minute silence on Nov 11, so why do we need another one, on a different day, because a football match is about to start?

People can display their opinions however they want and with a game that was as energy charged as yesterday the last thing people are thinking about is an auld wummin they don’t know… plus the speakers are shocking so by the time a few of us got in we didn’t realise it had started

True and most of that time they have murdered, raped ,pillaged, stolen and hidden cash. And we are expected to revere them………lol

I am no subject of theirs and never will be. If you are happy being a subject then good luck to you.

Not defending people who made a noise during the minutes silence but as I said before and others have alluded to many fans in the NW did not know exactly when it started due to the terrible tannoy system we have and the display was still ongoing…

I noticed a bunch of NW heroes stayed behind after the final whistle to shout abuse at some Falkirk players warming down (or whatever it’s called) - the visitors looked totally bemused - probably more used to it from their own support.
Would have been better done up the other end of the park - maybe a deliberate decision for the wind up ?

I`m personally glad there was some disruption. I sat quietly, but in my younger days I might have reacted differently. The Queen/monarchy has nothing to do with football and with around 40% against, it`s an understandable reaction to the imposition.

United and Hibs fans also showed their feelings https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/62942308. Interesting that only The Rangers had a minute`s silence. All other premiership games had a minute`s applause.

You don`t really have to be a "subject" of anyone to show a bit of respect and decency when they pass away.


What about if you don`t feel like they deserve any respect? If you strongly oppose what they (and those who encourage compliance) represent?

I sat quiet as a mouse. Not as a mark of respect but it not the time or the place for me to voice an opinion about the Monarchy at a football match.

The Queen has gone and hopefully the country can return to a semblance of normality on Tuesday.

The King? Won’t get an ounce of respect from me. Taking suitcases full of cash from Arabs, and sacking over 100 of his loyal subject/servants without batting an eyelid. Self righteous pompous oafs the lot of them.
Republicans deserve to be heard. No place for a Monarchy like we have in the 21st century.

If you watch Tony Robinson documentary about the royals it turns out that Edward 4th was illegitimate so the Tudor line should have ended and the Hastings should have been in line to the throne. Which meant that everyone from Henry 8th…I think right up to today should not have been monarchs at all.

So those who held placards up saying Not my King are actually correct…..

Shouldn’t be a minutes silence in nov at a football match anyway.

There’s an official date and time for that where people can show their respects should they wish to.

I know the bbc presenters all seem to be wearing funeral gear for the last couple of days and in a month the poppy fascists will be out in force… so where does it end? Is it ok to only allow people wearing poppies in the ground in that day?

There are lots of reasons why someone would object to the politicisation of the whole poppy/remembrance day and all the associated things it’s now used for…

so are you saying they should be forced to be comply and are not allowed to voice there opinion, but sit and be silent and comply with others demonstrating their opposing view?

I’m sure they said the tannoy system wasn’t important or something along those lines at that meeting at the club not so long ago. You’d think they’d try to get a better one in considering it’s all to do with the match day experience. You can’t even hear the music most of the time. Has to be one of the worst in Scottish football. No wonder the guys behind the flag couldn’t hear when the silence started.

I was OK with it and willing to haud ma whesht till I saw they had postponed Guinea Pig Appreciation Week for the funeral. Too far!

(Too soon? I think there shouldn`t have been a minutes silence as the Queen had nothing to do with the Pars, Falkirk or football in general but once the club did decide to have it I would have observed it because I wouldn`t want to show Dunfermline up.)

The vast majority of the NW were caught up in the derby atmosphere and could not see the minutes silence happening but did quieten down when they realised unfortunately a lot of other fans by that point had started booing them, not great!

There were a few anti Queen shouts then the ref finished the 30 second silence. Most people round me were not royalist but did keep quiet for the period, but a silence for the Queen was never going to be 100% observed in Scotland especially in Scottish football with the association the Queen and Union Jack has up here.

Yep. I asked when it could be repaired and was told the cost was something in the region of £46k and that money would be better spent on players etc, but it was something that was on the radar.


As for the minute’s silence being observed I too thought the NW lads just weren’t aware of it starting because of the banner, and once those around them / nearby made them aware they became quieter. This doesn’t excuse the continued shouts heard elsewhere.

The Falkirk faithful in the top left hand corner were also still singing at the same time but unless I’m mistaken they didn’t drop the volume until much later (and one or two “F the Q” were clearly audible).
You’re probably not aware that a handful of their fellow supporters, seated on the right hand side nearest the main stand, made hissing noises. I heard them on my way to the kiosk prior to KO.


When it comes to the Royal Family there’s no middle ground - you either appreciate them or hate what they stand for. You can’t please everybody.

The suggestion that people in the NW were unaware the silence had started because of the banner is utter nonsense (and actually, rather insulting).

Everybody knew in advance that there would be a minute`s silence before yesterday`s game. It was announced on the PA system before it started as well.

Let`s not kid ourselves on - the people in the NW tend to be of a certain mindset. Their intention was to deliberately disrupt the silence yesterday, and that`s exactly what they did.

As I`ve said elsewhere, a lot of these individuals are either unwilling or incapable of behaving like civilised human beings. What some would call "being a passionate supporter", I would more accurately describe as "behaving like a total a**ehole".

Fortunately, most will eventually grow out of that sort of behaviour, but they`ll only be replaced by the next generation of daft wee laddies.

Let me put it this way - my 9 year old son comes to the games with me these days, and I don`t want him anywhere near that lot.

Morons.

Point blank fact: tannoy system is useless.
However, anyone with even a brain cell would have known there would be one
You’d have thought that the players lining up on the centre circle and the red blowing his whistle might have been a clue. Tannoy doesn’t work in main stand either; but there was no issue there. There were also no objects thrown at linesman from main stand either.

"When it comes to the Royal Family there’s no middle ground - you either appreciate them or hate what they stand for. You can’t please everybody."

It`s not as straightforward as that polarised position Buffy.

Yes, at one end of the spectrum there are committed Royalists - and at the other extreme the equally motivated anti Monarchy. The latter especially are a loose coalition of different mindsets, from political left wingers through to Republicans and Nationalists.

In the middle are the ambivalent, generally indifferent to the whole issue.

Do you believe that because the BBC and Daily Mail told you?

The greatest monarch we have ever had was Robert the Bruce.

It`s boring reading the tears of a simpleton. Section North West has breathed new life in the ground and provides much needed atmosphere and more importantly gives teenagers a reason to go to games, creating a pipeline of supporters who hopefully develop a lifetime love for the Pars. Not easy when our society has become obsessed with glory hunting more glamorous teams on Sky Sports or similar.

There`s always going to be a need to police the more challenging behaviour this brings, but over reacting to the online whingeing of sad little men who contribute nothing themselves is not a direction I`d like to see the club take.

I sat quietly at our game, but how many do we need, we’ve had a game cancelled, one at ours, a national one then one at the funeral! Now another, not seeing that I can’t complain during this one, or do I have to obey them indefinitely, say walk into Tesco next Thursday to be told at 19:13 we are holding one!

At this point I do wish they would just leave well enough alone. A minute`s applause before tomorrow evening`s Scotland game is not going to go well, however it will go better than a minute`s silence would.

Some will applaud, some won`t applaud and I expect there will be a minority of morons trying to actively disrupt it. It`ll all end up being a bit of a farce.

I`ll be sitting quietly just as I did on Saturday.

This is the first Scotland game after the death of one of our best goalkeepers in recent memory, Andy Goram. If people want to protest, perhaps a chorus of "One Andy Goram" (or "Two Andy Gorams" if you remember that particular story) would be more appropriate?

I dunno, I was high up in the South stand and thought the booing was pretty tame considering there were 45000 or whatever. Certainly looked like the vast majority were clapping.

I remember when the Celtic fans booed Fergus McCann when he unfurled the flag that stopped 10 in a row (greatest fans in the world). That was the loudest noise I`ve ever heard in a stadium. It wasn`t even close to that.
