Such a shame there was no minute applause or silence to honour Russell Coughlin before the Luton game on Saturday.
It was a chance to pay our respects to a fellow Pilgrim.
Exeter City held a minute applause for him before their game on Saturday.
Biggs wrote: It's a terrible thing to say, but I think the impact and meaning of rounds of applause/minute's silence have been hugely lessened in recent years with the regularity in which they are used. Of course, once you start doing it for some people, it's difficult to say another person shouldn't have one. The first time I saw a minute applause was for George Best, which I found very moving because it was a genuine appreciation for the joy he had brought football fans everywhere. Subsequent minute applauses for fans and players who the vast majority of the crowd don't even know (not the case with Russell, but often is), always come off a bit insincere to me.
I personally feel they should be reserved for club legends (be they players or otherwise) or major tragedies. I wasn't at Home Park on Saturday but if, as davie says, there was an applause at half time for Russell then that is wholly appropriate in my view.
