I have said it for years, but silences at football should be rare occasions. It is somewhat more ridiculous now as all games are in silence, but what other form of entertainment is treated so seriously that we need to be reminded of the outside world. I can't imagine ever going to see The Manics or The Wedding Present and being told to shut up for the first minute because someone died.
It should only be some monumental local event, or the death of someone with a long association with the club or franchise playing at home.

FAI were awful for minutes silences a few years ago. Think there was a run of 6 or 7 Ireland games in a row with a minutes silence/applause beforehand.

There were a lot but I'd no issue with them, for the most part they were for people who were grassroots in the game. I know one and it meant a huge amount to the family. 

Delaying the game by less than a minute for a bit of recognition puts nobody out.

Of course it does! I used to travel four hours and football is my bit of escapism! I don't need reminding of anything at all when I get there. A minutes applause,  if absolutely necessary, but forced grieving and remembrance can f**k off.

I also see why you chose your name now...

It's not necessary though is it? we must be the only country that does this.

Johnny Lyons - what's his connection to the FAI?

I think a note in the program would be more appropriate.

When someone calls a another person. And the line is bad.  But the person keeps repeating. Hello, hello over and over again.  If not going answer an second or third hello forget about it.

Set game a year (last game of the season in May or June) to remember those who passed away over the previous year is more than appropriate IMO unless it's someone hugely significant like Jack etc...

Why a set game? Football is escapism for supporters, why do we need to be reminded of death? Can you imaging turning up at U2 or Steps and being told to shut up for a minute because someone died?

Think most u2 gigs are about people who have died whether that’s MLK, his parents, Greg Carroll etc LOL

Of course, and music is about remembering, even if I think Bono is a ****! But you can remember without having it become a funeral. As an example,  every Manics fan who turns up at a gig is remembering Richey; he is probably the main reason they show up. It doesn't mean we need to do a performative silence to remember him every time we show up.

In 2006 Metallica celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Cliff Burton's death by playing "Master Of Puppets" in full, during their European Tour. Not only was it a way of paying tribute to a former and legendary band member, it was almost the full initiation for Robert Trujillo three years after he joined the band. After Burton's death in 1986 it appeared some of his music was "off limits", but that changed after 2006.

To PM's point, there are other an more poignant ways to pay tribute.

I just think everything needs an explanation. If you can't explain it then there's probably no point or reason.

I vacuum pack my clothes when going on holidays every year. Usually drive to Spain. I’ve got 4 kids. It makes a huge difference in the amount of space it occupies in the car. Really makes it easier for us.

These have to be on the market for over 20 years at this stage and I'd image are in use in most homes in the country to save storage space.

Drive to Spain?
