STATEMENT ON TABLOID COVERAGE
Fri 09 Sep 2011

Cardiff City Football Club were disappointed to read articles in three national tabloid newspapers this week whereby we feel insensitive and unfounded connections were drawn from the tragic events at Wembley Stadium on September 6th 2011.

It is our opinion that The Daily Mirror, The Sun and the Daily Mail have acted insensitively towards the memory of Mike Dye at a time when his family are still in the early stages of mourning their loss.

It is also our view that the tabloid attempts to draw tenuous connections of possible clashes between Cardiff City and Swansea City supporters at the Wales v England match come without any direct evidence or basis for doing so, using this as a means to cite 'Rivalry fury'.



This is something that we consider to be extremely disrespectful to both clubs and supporters following many positive steps being taken between both clubs in recent years, specifically in light of the sympathies being shared by both clubs and all supporters over this tragic incident.

The club have taken this matter up with the Press Complaints Commission and will be contacting the tabloids named directly in due course.

It should also be noted that neither the Daily Mirror or the Daily Mail have made direct requests for their employees to attend the match, while we have requested that The Sun withdraw their request to attend due to the sensitivity of the day. This has been agreed.

On Saturday we will pay respects to Mike Dye as outlined and are sure all supporters will play their part. Thank you.





Brilliantly said, well done Cardiff City :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah: :ayatollah:

Absolutely fantastic to see the club taking such a postive stance on this, I don't think I have ever felt as proud of our club as I have reading that statement.

Well done Cardiff City FC. If Julian Jenkins is responsible for this, how can we let him go. Renegotiate his salary or whatever.We need this kind of person at CCFC . It makes me very proud that the club have remembered Mike in this way

Well done my club!!!!

With being wary of being disrespectful to Mike and his family. I must say that a lot of positives are happening at the moment and we seem to pulling together as a band of brothers because of this sad and shocking loss and everything that has happened around it. Attitudes/moods are changing, not only ourselves but our rivals down the way. Football fans nation wide have also come together with us in a show of respect and defiance in regards to the certain tabloids.
I live in the Merseyside and as some of you may know it is a sin to purchase The Sun Newspaper, a REAL death wish. A few LFC & EFC chaps iv'e spoken with in the past few days have also/or are writing to this tabloids in regards to this report, after all they know first hand how it feels.

I honest believe this is going to change a lot of things, rivalry will always exist and I for one love it, however bridges are being built, none more so than at international fixtures I believe, it time we unite as one under one flag (cheesy but true). I think this very forum is a prime example, moments like these are when you realise what tight bunch we are, even if the vast majority have not met one another, we share a lot of personal things on here and have a lot in common, regardless of age. The atmosphere on here is already becoming a lot more respectful and long may it continue. We will begin to put things in perspective and love supporting Cardiff, back to the days Mike used to talk so fondly about on this forum.

Shit at writing presidential speeches but this is my attempt, I just get my head down and type. hope my message is conveyed as I intended it to.

Just got down from up north, ill be at the gate for 2.15

Justice will be served but now is a time to remember and respect!
