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!'.
