The minute’s silence was the wrong idea, in my opinion. Don’t take that the wrong way, of course, as it was a massive tragedy and those people killed are gone forever.
But do we have a minute’s silence for every other disaster? Or Ibrox? Heysel? The Titanic? Or anything else? The scousers should’ve played on the Sunday, anyway. They should be doing their own minute’s silence that day, having their own grieving and respect moments.
The vast majority of non-scouser fans see the scouser ‘never the cause, always the victim’ mentality as a constant denial to their very own fault on the Hillsboro’ disaster. Do the scousers give the same respect for the 42 Italians they killed at Heysel?
I am certainly not condoning the few idiots up in the 500s who started a fairly muted ‘murderers, murderers…’ song during the minute’s silence, but I do question whether we should have to create these possible scenarios in the first place. Everyone can show their respect how they wish during their own time. Some don’t agree, which is their prerogative, but unfortunately a few feel they need to let others know that they think the scousers are dirty murdering scum during a moment when they should be showing some respect and keeping their thoughts to themselves, just like the vast majority of those in the stadium managed to do.
