I disagree
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

cricket and other sports have decided to continue.... absolutely no reason to cancel as it's been left to the sports bosses to decide....

on the plus side it means we have more time for players to recover from injury
2022/2023.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

Once in 70 years to commerate and reflect on an era and unique servant is in my view not too much to ask for.
We'll be getting our weekly, double dose of football again next week. We'll survive.

Exactly. I could understand next weekend's games being cancelled as the funeral gets closer and there may be pressures on policing, but calling off tomorrow's games makes no sense to me.

I was honestly upset on her majesty's passing BUT the world doesn't stop revolving.... the time for grief maybe at her funeral where we all pause

You can only watch so many different takes of her life on television which the free channels are now showing ....

Internet streaming has killed the relevance of continual broadcasting of the event for days on end

Suspect I will be in the bookies tomorrow betting on the dogs instead (virtual racing if need be)

We have been known to disagree on some things but on this we agree

What better way of showing respect than to have many thousands of people standing in silence or maybe with the National Anthem being played at one time tomorrow afternoon.

Not that it matters, but thirded. If it's an issue with policing, that's fine but we're adults and can say that. Not the end of the world for me personally but I know plenty of other fans who have travel booked, etc which is money they won't see back as we approach an already difficult end to the year.

There is no logic to it, it's just a mark of respect.
Indeed, a minute of clapping and the national anthem being played at all the matches would have been fine as well. They have chosen for a one time postponement and that is fine as well.
The point about fans who have perhaps already made costs is very valid and clubs should be generous in reimbursing.
You'll never be able to do it right for everyone but then again I doubt there will ever be a monarch with 70 years of service with the stature of QE2.

Agree with you, not least since she only cared about horse-racing anyway.

I am split on this one, I really am.

But I think it likely that given the choice The Premier League, FA and other sporting bodies would be happy to carry on as normal but in this finger pointing age we live in they feel that they have to be seen to be doing 'the right thing.'

Two minutes of silence at every football ground in the country would have been a far better way to show respect than this. As it is most other sports will go ahead, while football supporters will have wasted travel money and clubs money on catering, programmes etc. It's the usual virtue signalling from two pretty tone deaf organisations.
