The Turkish coach addressed this post-game...It was like a dad scolding his children. How embarrassing. Similar to Aaron Rodgers having to correct that childish fan at the Packer game this weekend.

You must have a very different definition of "going nuts" that I do.

*Sigh* Here we go again. Already with the knock on hate and "Christian" values when no-one was even discussing that. You are not helping any in the discussion by coming right out of the gateway with that negativity. Geez!

I guess it's just hard for me to believe that people could be so cruel as to boo victims.
Another article below adds another layer to the discussion that wasn't considered nor brought up in the U.S. news outlets.

Quote:
Turkish manager Fatih Terim suggested after the game that fans at the Basaksehir Fatih Terim Stadium should have been more respectful.

"Our fans should have behaved during the national anthems and during the one minute silence," Terim is quoted as saying after the 0-0 draw.

"Greece is our neighbour. Today is world neighbours day, but our fans didn't behave like neighbours in this match."

However, comments on social media sites have suggested that the boos were not to disrespect those who had died in the attacks - but more to do with the hypocrisy of the Western world.

International teams did not hold a minute's silence after the Ankara terror attack in October. More than 100 people died in the Turkish capital after two bombs were set off outside the Ankara Central railway station on 11 October; Turkish fans also booed during a minute's silence of their game against Iceland on 13 October.

Abs Pangader Actually, they're chanting "Sehitler olmez, vatan bolunmez." Which means "Martyrs never die, the nation won't be divided." This is a common slogan thrown in remembrance of Turkish soldiers who fell victim to terrorism. In Turkey, there is rarely a minute of silence that isn't interrupted by this chant. Whether its a minute of silence for a Turkish catastrophe, or something else that happened globally, this always happens.

Mert Kılıçsoy its was response of injustice,they didnt boo minute's silence for paris attack victims.the millions of ppl dying in turkey couse of terrorist attacks where were you when more than 100 people killed in ankara ?

Mohamed El-Hami They were upset because there were mass killing by ISIL and Kurdish army and lots of deaths in turkey and no country or football team or fans in Europe stood a silence minute for their victims.

Babak Esmailpour When ISIS killed innocent Turkish who remain silent or salute them ?no one.

Motaz Amjad It's because of double standards, few weeks ago there was an attack in Ankara and more than hundred where dead In a " peace protest" yet nobody cared or gave minute silence for them. So they decided not to give something they didn't get,, although you don't fix a mistake with another one but that's how it went. Mistakes happen.

Ibrahim Abdullahi Wada They were also attacked several times but no one cares. So they have many reasons to do that.

Shahab Raza Are only french people dying ??? How about others huh...minute of silence

Ahmed Azzam Why was there no minute silence for the innocent Iraqis murdered over the last decade, the Syrians who have been slaughtered, the Palestinians murdered, the genocide of the Burmese people...... Booing was wrong absolutely, but don't criticise people without context ... These people are sick of seeing western blood values so so so much more than others and it's a Rubbish... If you're gonna do a minute silence do if for everyone equally

Levent M. Hameed No one makes a minute of silence for all the victims i middle east. 150 deaths is a regular day in Iraq and Syria. Turkey is a neighbor to both of them and have relatives which died because of terror crimes. Without of minute of silence. That's why. And they're right. Its not against the victims, its about the hypocrisy.

Talha Shahid Coz Paris was not the first to be targeted.... Before that a lot more countries suffered this
Turkey fans boo minute's silence for Paris victims - but it was not a mark of disrespect, claim commentators on social media | Europe | News | The Independent

I can live with that. We have people that cheer when Muslims die, this isn't a one-sided problem. There are people you are embarrassed to have yourself associated with in every demographic. Right now I want to smack a middle school principal in San Fransisco for embarrassing educators.

Turkey is starting to have some problems now.
Yes, a creeping non-secularism - and it seems growing non-secularized Islam. A hundred years ago Ataturk brought Turkey into the modern world. One step forward - two steps back (toward the 7th century).

The moment they started booing, I was hoping for a catastrophic engineering design flaw, where all the grandstands suddenly came crashing down. What a bunch of slimeballs. Subhuman slimeballs.

It wasn't just a few fans. It was how the Turks feel about the attacks. It is obvious that they are on the side of the terrorists.

The Turkish government allowed the US to launch some aggressive attacks. The Turkish people do not approve of all that the government does.

We are the ones with the Christian values. THEY are the ones with the hate, which is typical of muslims.

It's not like the Turkey game where a bunch of people started booing, it was a couple idiots. Rodgers just called them out on it post-game.
