In my opinion cancelling was the right thing to do. A large minority of football fans do have sheep mentality and will boo / abuse / menace others etc. if their mate does. Look how impeccably they behaved at the Euros Final.

Perhaps the risk may have been lower on this occasion, but Liverpool, Man Utd and other clubs have fans who are not sympathetic to the monarchy and privileges especially as cost of living is rising.

Of course we may see some protests, but expect they'll be less extreme now a few days have passed.

There may have been a few grounds where a minute's silence wouldn't have been fully respected, but so what? Is this not a democracy where people have the right to protest (in a peaceful way ofc). Are we so fragile of hearing a few boos? I'm sure 99.99% of grounds and fans would have totally respected it and even given a full-blown national anthem too for good measure.

Unless it is a whoosh for me the chancers who misbehaved at the Euros were not your game by game football fans but chancers who wanted to be at an event.

Indeed. Seems like a very intolerant stance to adopt and that consent is enforced rather than freely given.
