I wasn't having a pop at you mate, it just seems that this keeps getting brought up by mags. As i said, i think we have them on the shirts at the nearest home game to remembrance sunday because they are guaranteed to be on the home shirts (whereas they are not at an away game). Therefore when they are auctioned off the home shirts are perceived to have greater value then away shirts, therefore people are willing to bid more money. This of course helps the charities that the money goes to! It's a load of fuss about nothing, if we had a home game today then they would have been on the shirts today i guess.
