    Fined for wearing the Poppy...what next!!

    Well all sides went through with it....
    My comment to Fifa would you like to take the money for next year as we will be doing the same.

    Always thought the Swiss were neutral..........!!

    A lot of people often refer to the past, but don’t shoot in the present…..


    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    I really don't think they understand what the poppy is about. It's less political than the national symbols that all teams wear on their shirts.

    No, the Swiss were happy to act as "honest neutrals" and so take in safe keeping for the Nazis gold ingots cast from the teeth of murdered Jews. Effectively abandoning any sort of moral decency and thus colluding in genocide. Neutral in name...Nazi war machine enablers in practice.

    The decision was taken by FIFA's Disciplinary Committee - http://www.fifa.com/about-fifa/commi...ittee=1882042/ - so the blame is equally shared across many countries, not just the Swiss.

    Whatever their nationality if it hadn't been for the men and women who gave up their lives to protect our freedom, their wouldn't be a FIFA to lord over our football teams with their self righteous views.

    Their HQ might be in Switzerland but have a look at the Disciplinary Committee and you'll see that it is made up of many nations.

    I dislike FIFA as much as the next person, but put the blame where it's due.
