Why is is not a minutes silence for Beattie? 11:50 - Sep 17 with 1927 viewspmh

I hate minutes applauses. Means nothing, I much prefer a minutes silence in a football stadium. I just love to see a packed excitable stadium hushed in seconds to silence.

Unfortunately every time we have had a minutes silence for someone there are idiots down on the concourse shouting and screaming. They then come up the stairs and wonder why it is so quiet.

A minutes applause is what we need for the Beat.

Totally agree.
If we can't keep quiet for a minute, that's a pitiful situation.

The power of silence is immense, and it really gets you where these kind of things should do.

It should be 60 seconds of emotional silence followed by a roar and "Beattie is Back" being chanted for an age.

Agree. It is much more respectful to observe a minutes silence.

Applause seems to have been introduced for celebrating someone's life, Kevin Beattie being a good example.

Silence has been retained for occasions where applause is not appropriate, big tragedies and around Remembrance Sunday.

That is the way it has gone in the last ten years and football seems to prefer applause for some reason.

As long as we remember him, does it really matter? I'd have thought noise would be more appropriate for someone who lived to play on the pitch in front of the fans. But don't think it's particularly important either way.

Whichever it was I know that I would(will) have tears in my eyes.

Yeah I have heard noisy people in the concourse prior to a minutes silence before. The stewards and people serving in the concourses should advise people from 2.50/7.35 that a silence is to take place.

We normally don't get into the ground until about 10 minutes prior to kick off I then get my two lads a hot dog each and we go straight to our seats. My lads have often been eating during a minutes silence but that is way better than the noise from the concourse.

Applause is a continental thing. I too much prefer silence but I do see where applause can be as good. Perhaps it is something the deceased's family can request.

Come the 6th min we’ll probably be silent anyway, so that’s when that will happen!

But seriously, should be silence before the game, and clap on 6th min.

And Brentford are probably the set of fans I’d pick that would be as respectful as we would be if the roles were reversed.

We’ll be good again... one day

Reduces risk of certain people wanting to ruin it by making noise, and in a way applause is better, as you say, to celebrate someone.

Beattie's life should be celebrated, rather than his death mourned, imho.

I would imagine that the family has been consulted on the matter and expressed their preference. If so, let's just abide by their decision and see our hero off in style.

I'm not a fan of the minutes silence as it has a very negative affect on the atmosphere after, but I do feel that applause should be spontaneous, not planned.
