Lap of dishonour?

What does everyone make of the team doing a lap of ďhonourĒ the around the pitch with assorted offspring, waving etc following a loss?

Initially I just found it annoying because it made the crowd crush trying to leave even worse - but a few days later it does strike me as rather odd.

I just regard it as the team showing their appreciation for our support. If they just left after a loss it would be rather ungracious.

Yeah thatís normally what I think - it just seemed all a bit wavey and smiley this time - maybe Iím just being overly grumpy about the loss.

It's not a lap of honour. it's thanking the fans.

I have no problem with it and i think it shows a level of respect for the people that play their wages (us.) They were definitely not smiling and jolly on saturday, they just trudged around the pitch clapping the fans...how could anyone be annoyed by that?

I guess the only exception might be if they were completely humiliated 0-100 and it was more prudent to go and hide in the changing rooms rather than face the jeers of CAW posters....

In the past CoS used to always want to players straight off for a debrief
It's been raised ( more than once) and in particular at some away games, when players called straight off the pitch, that it was slightly disrespectful to travelling support to Not thanks and show some appreciation for those that make the effort..
GB , JK and all the rest of the management have changed this, and good on them for it.
And it's good to see it's happening home and away.
No lap of honour it's a show of appreciation

Maybe do it only if they win. Just clap the crowd and get off if they lose.

Oh Jeez. And then hear the whingeing about their disrespect! I'm happy that the team we (partly) pay for and that we support, thanks us for that support at the end of the game. It's going to look very West Stand elitist if they thank us and wave to everyone else before running away!

Well, to be fair I thought "Lap of dishonour" a bit strong for a team that gave their all in a titanic game that could have gone either way.
