Football’s governing body, Fifa, has turned down a request from England and Scotland for players to wear armbands featuring poppies on Armistice Day, the Scottish Football Association says. Does the design really breach a ban on “political” symbols, asks Stephen Fottrell.
So, every player sticks (OK, not every player, personal choice of course) a British Legion poppy in the button hole of their shirt then. Falls out after 2 minutes so what?
No, really, Fuck Fifa and their horse. It might even be a political symbol and it’s still Fuck Fifa.
