To those still in the bar at 14.58 yesterday who interrupted the minute's silence with a hearty chorus of "f***ing hate Fulham", well done, you must feel so proud.

Were they actually in the stand though? It sounded to me like they were beneath the stand and maybe not aware of the minutes silence taking place, we're normally pretty good with this so will be surprised and very disappointed if it was done deliberately,, i was down near the front yesterday and we took a fair bit of stick from the Norwich fans as it happened

They weren't in the stand. Exactly the same thing happened at QPR and similarly when Fulham played at GP, IIRC.

You cannot blame them. They wouldn't have known.

The silence in the stands was impeccable.

They were in the bar. Some i think were still outside the ground.

I don't buy the idea that the poor dears "wouldn't have known". There was an article about the minute's silence on the club's website a couple of days earlier and given that they only burst into "song" halfway through the silence, did none of them stop and think about what was going on outside?
It does not leave opposition fans with a good impression of our club.

Maybe they hadn't read the article? Its obviously unfortunate but I don't believe for a minute they intentionally interrupted the silence. Why would they?

The noise was made by people coming through the turnstiles and into the bar area. Nobody deliberately disrespectful.

Probably coming in the ground... plus chatting in the bar you're not really aware of silence or otherwise outside. Same happened at QPR. Can't imagine anyone would do intentionally.

I was in the bar and made my way up the stairs and THEN realised the minutes silence was ongoing, I respectfully stood at the top of the stairs before taking my seat.
Those still coming in behind me also stopped and respected.
Those still coming through turnstiles and in the bar would not have realised as they were in full song BEFORE.

I don't understand why a big fuss is being made over something that was unintentional, some of us were in full song and had had a few pints beforehand.
It is a football stadium not a church!
I reiterate I as did others still entering up the steps stopped singing and stood silent , those still coming in and in the bar would NOT have known!

I don't think some Norwich fans calling us "c*nts" during the minutes silence does them any favours either. There wasn't a sound from those of us In the ground and like others, I doubt those coming in would have realised.

I find it worse/weird when those in the ground start shushing or shouting "shut up".

A quick solution would be for the late comers and stragglers to be advised by the ground management that a minutes silence is will be in progress, if you don't know you won't be aware and let's face it Brentford fans are as big as any one else when it comes to it.

Its an opinion, but you crack on. People love to dig more stuff out of nowhere to moan about. :wave:
I agree the whole minutes silence not being observed thing is nonsense, I posted that earlier. It's just those 4 words you used send me into a fit of rage- don't know why - maybe I can get something to take for it.

Agreed. I only heard one away supporter respond with an a tirade of c words. That was truly embarrassing. The singing from below was just an innocent mistake, not worth bothering about.

In an ideal world everyone would remember but when people have had a few drinks before the game and you're not in the ground when it starts it's pretty easy to forget. I wasn't there but it definitely doesn't sound like anyone was being intentionally disrespectful.

it is always the way, when people emerge they realise and shut up. Not really their fault.

Ready for a proper tin hat moment here though...is anybody else finding the constant tributes and clapping that goes on during games somewhat over the top. A minutes silence for this awful plane crash and remembrance I am 100% all for, but it feels to me that barely a game goes by when someone isn't being applauded at a certain time particularly on the live games. The remembrance stuff started about 2 weeks before and carried on for about 2 weeks after the 11th Nov, it is more of a remembrance month with every club feeling they have to do it at home even if their away game falls on the 11th. Why can't we all do it on the day, why do we all need to have at least one each and when did it become 2 minutes plus the trumpet etc, I feel the whole thing is being watered down by an overenthusiastic politically correct establishment.

You use to get up on a Sunday and go to the memorial hall or the statues etc, I literally stood through at least 6-7 of them over a 2 week period and then the whole crowd stood up and started applauding some chap after 47 minutes in same game.

I am all for it but I think It is going to lose its impact with everyone trying to outdo each other.

" Why not have a 90 minutes silence for the several hundred that die from starvation during that 90 minutes around the world."

Fulham already did that the other week


Edit from nocoat. I'm so sorry Idontbeelievit . I was on mobile and instead of quoting your post I edited it now can't get your old one back. It's early in the morning! Please accept my apologies.

yes all this minutes silence for this and that has got well out of hand. if you watch matches on TV from say Thursday to Monday, then it may involve up to 10 matches each having a minutes silence to commemorate the same event. I think maybe the silence should be saved for armistice day and other monumental events and have black armbands for other occasions.

I think it's a legacy of Diana's (Queen of Hearts) death. All of a sudden books of condolence and the need to grieve as a nation.
Now it seems default to have a minute silence for everything
