Re: Lest we forget

Around the same time the England & other home Nations were playing rugby, noted that they were all wearing poppies.
Hope the England players chip in to pay the fine if its actually implemented.

England fined over £35,000 for poppy display

The Football Association have been fined £35,000 for wearing poppies during their World Cup qualifier against Scotland with other home nations also paying the price for their displays of remembrance.

Both England and Scotland defied the wishes of Fifa by wearing poppies sewn into black armbands during the match on November 16, which Gareth Southgate’s side won 3-0.

World football’s governing body issued the fine in relation to the display not only by “host association” but also “spectators”, adding that the FA had faced further fines due to “several cases of spectator misconduct”.

Scotland were also handed a fine of £15,700 as their players had also worn poppies on their shirts.Fifa poppy fine: England fined over £35,000 for poppy display against Scotland as Fifa punish British nations | London Evening Standard

£35,000 less than a weeks wages for some of the players maybe they would like to chip in and pay the fine?

As said on the other thread regarding the fine considering the wages some of the players are on then the £35,000 fine which has now been imposed would be chicken feed to some of the players but lets wait and see 'not that I agree there should be a fine' but who will offer to pay it

Ask their old pal Sep Blatter to pay it for them, he'll have that much in his @rse pocket from his fiddles.

Should Ireland have been allowed to wear the Easter Lily on their shirts this year for the Rising Centenary..........
Apparently Philip, Ireland were fined £4000 for wearing the Easter Lily.
