Minutes Applause?

Postby please_remain_calm » Thu Nov 29, 2007 8:20 pm

I just watched the moment's silence for ST at the Cowboys game.

Some soccer teams have went to the minutes applause instead of the silence for these occasions. I believe it started in Italy but the most moving example I have seen is Celtic's for Jinky Johnstone.

Let the rest of the league do their moments silence but have OUR stadium applauding the man and celebrating his life.

I have not contributed much to the ST threads, I just have not known what to say :( I for one would love to see this happen.
Hail! Hail! The Celts are here!


HAIL to the REDSKINS!

Why not do both? Applaud and cheer AFTER the moment of silence, like the Cowboys fans did.

Possibly. Have the entire stadium standing and cheering after the silence would really be something.

It would be nice to have the memory at our stadium be different from the rest of the NFL, he is OURS ya know?
