    Agenda for Working Together meeting tonight...

    Rumour is a fan is proposing the idea of an Armed Forces day at Easter Road at tonights Working Together meeting? Personally its not for me, it just reeks of Hunnishness.

    Let servicemen-women/ ex-servicemen-women in for free to a game, nae hassle, then the next game, we could maybe have an unemployed day, a zero hours contract day, a minimum wage day, a student day.

    They talk about keeping politics out of football then try and drag this stuff into agendas.

    I wonder if fans will be consulted by the fan reps if the suggestion grows arms and legs?

    I can see absolutely no reason whatsoever for us to have an Armed Forces Day. I'm very pro our Armed Forces. However, I see no link at all between a football club and a celebration of the Armed Services. As you say by all means let them in for free to a game. But don't restrict it to just Armed Services.

    Where are they? They seem to have gone to ground again?

    I agree. Hibs seem to be slipping. They think like 10-20 in these meetings are the fans voice.


    Hibs are standing on the brink of history...
    They've only gone and done it..
    They've only gone and won The Scottish Cup.

    Hibs have done tickets for the Forces for years, not sure how long.

    We've also done something around Armistice Day since at least the opening of the new East. On that occasion my daughter got a freebie and went on to become a season ticket holder then it declined a bit because of work shifts and is currently dormant as she rears the next generation of supporter :-) currently 10 months old and as cute as any Hibby could be!

    I think the most notable thing around Armistice Day has been the piper playing a lament. Something I've never read on the forums ever being criticised.

    It's not what we do it's how we do it.

    It obviously wasn't me that decided any of this and I'm easy osy with it so I'll not comment on the other groups you mention.

    Edit. The only issue I think there may be would be the lack of available seats these days!

    As a serving soldier of 22 years, I'm on the fence with the idea, I'd like to think Hibs fans are above all of the political nonsense that we see at Ibrox and that we could perhaps let a few serving/vets in for Armistice day/game without actually making a big fuss about it. It's not like you're gonna see us doing the bouncy bouncy in the East stand is it. BUT over the last few years it's been forced on people a little with wearing poppies, Armed forces day etc, for my first 10 years serving no one gave a flying $#@! about us and i kind of liked it that way, all i see now is just BS sympathy!
    I actually cringe when someone says thank you for your service. A dignified silence on Armistice day is good enough, if you choose to do it fine, if you choose to ignore it thats fine too.

    I agree. I think we can all appreciate the situation - and often bravery - of people who join the forces without necessarily endorsing the political backdrop to what they are engaged in.

    But how about, to pull two examples basically at random, firefighters and carers. What a grand thing it would be to have days focused around their contribution.
    so what do I know

    I thank you for that post, you struck a good balance in how you see things with current 'default' values.

    Mind you, ah am exceedingly pished.

    The agenda item was recorded incorrectly. For the last few years we have on the match closest to Remembrance Day hosted residents from Erskine home at the game using the hospitality boxes in the famous 5. With the closure of BTG that's not an option this year and that's why the agenda item was raised.

    As an ex serviceman I'm no' sure about this. It all seems a bit too hunnish for me. Give free tickets and respect armistice day. And never forget it's not about celebrating war it's remembering those who died. And most of them had no choice.

    Mmm, this is generally where I sit.

    Public servants are generally respected in Scotland, and a show of that respect by the club is appropriate. Having a gaggle of pongos gamboling about the pitch with Hibs scarves, however, will undoubtedly draw the type of ire the club doesn't want.

    Totally fine with this, not happy about current employed folk getting in for nixie, no matter what their job. Imagine of there was a 'Police Scotland day'

    Far keener for Hibs to get folk less fortunate into the game, long term unemployed, disabled, minorities,newly arrived immigrants etc.

    As an aside, that entire BTG thing seems to be a fiasco...are NHS even using it? I doubt it.

    There is a guy on .net saying he attended the meeting but was told you aren't allowed to post what was discussed?

    Having family in the military I am happy to recognise their service, but agree there is no need. Where could it all end? Will we then have days for nhs staff, postmen, transexuals, cancer awareness etc etc Stick to the football, it is the one thing that unifies us. If we do anything then on poppy day/week have some military people to join the minutes silence, but we are not a recruiting station and young people can be easily influenced into a situation where their death can be the result.
