    Third Red Strip On Way Today

    I totally agree with you on this. Anyone who serves their country, whether it is the Armed Forces, Police, Fire or Health Services, who are injured in the line of duty, should be looked after by the Government and not by charities. My old man used to say charities were a way of the Government to get out of their responsibilities, all because they want to save money. However, as you have said, if we were to bring out a strip for cancer research or charities that are non-military in nature, maybe a lot more would buy the strip to support them. Just like this strip: I even bought this top.......

    Third Red Strip On Way Today

    Since the Americans have taken over, they have over the years supported the Armed Forces in one way or another and they have always favoured bringing out a third strip to do this. I personally have no problem them wanting to do this, however, some might see this differently and I can accept everyone's view one way or another. I think the issue with your post is that you want to tar all members of the Black Watch with the same brush, all because a few of their members have been accused of war crimes... so they're ALL guilty of this. I don't think it is fair to tarnish all their members over a few who have been accused of these incidents. The Black Watch is a well respected regiment all over the world and if there is any basis or a shred of truth to this story, then those who committed these acts should be brought to trial and to justice. I however, will wait and see what happens, because this is not the first time that the British Armed forces has been accused falsely by the press of war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Remember this by The Sun and Piers Morgan? If the story had been that members of the Black Watch had been charged, found guilty and sentenced, then I could understand why you would be shocked at our club releasing this strip today, but it is just another story in the newspapers and nothing more at this moment. If we were to run the way we do things because of alleged incidents in a newspaper, then we would never get anything done. Also, you suggesting that we pull this strip would be a slap in the face to those men and women who have worn or still wear the Black Watch colours over the last 100 years. At the end of the day, this topic was to discuss our new third kit and what we thought of it. Lets be honest, while you might find it contentious that we as a club choose to support the armed forces, most of us are thinking 'This strip is shite or this is strip is braw........ but am no parting with my cash for it!'.

    It will be for the armed forces I guess?
  7. Finally, I have been saying this for a long time. We need stability at the club and you cannot have that with the volume of players that we have had over the last 5 years.

    Decade Highlights for the Dee

    Player: It has to be either Harkins, Hemmings or Stewart for me. Goal: That McPake goal at the dump, as I believe that was the goal that started it all going bad for them! Game: Winning the 2014/5 Championship season. Highlight: The Deefiant Season and the Doon Derby, and the idiot Arab who got THAT tattoo of them winning a cup and they got beat!!

    I can't see Nelson leaving in Jan to be honest. Might look for a move after the season ends though. But good shouts!
