Why should he sing it?
What if he wants to play for his country but he doesn't agree with the monarchy?
Why does not singing the national anthem automatically make you unpatriotic in some people's eyes?
I never sing the anthem, but am proud to be British. (I also don't adorn my car and house with the Union flag or St George's cross whenever there's a sporting tournament.)
Get a grip people, a song doesn't make a country, the culture, history, and people do.

To sing "god save the queen" is about the monarchy and the political entity that is Britain. England and it's history and it's cultural identity is so much more than the monarchy. I feel passionate about England , but not about the queen so why do i want god to save her? I guess Rooney feels the same.
England's green and pleasant land, now thats a nice tune or abide with me .....that might be another thread.

Religion is less of a reason to sing than the monarchy. We need a new anthem, written especially for sporting occasions.

No religion and monarchy are equally bad reasons for a national anthem, but abide with me , now how lovely that was before the cup final, sentimental i suspose.

padster you make a good point , and might be a good solution , not sure he would sing anything , they all should be proud to pull on a shirt , if you represent your country you should take all that goes with it ,

Perhaps we should draft an alternative set of lyrics with which, atheist republican and dissenting intellectuals, like Wayne Rooney, will feel comfortable .Lets see ?
Inexplicable cosmos remain neutral to symbols of oppression
Do so for a long period , (or not its up to you)
Inexplicable cosmos remain..etc.
Sorry for any past military adventures
Of which we have wrongly been proud
Curse the persistent vestigial symbols of past oppression
Inexplicable cosmos remain neutral .
Would that be ok?

You have to admit, Paul, that it's a pretty rubbish anthem. I understand that it's the only national anthem in the world written in 3/4 time, so it's a complete nightmare to march to. It's also farcical, when England are playing the Welsh, that we have a British anthem and they have a Welsh one.

I supported that campaign a couple of years ago to get it replaced with Spandau Ballet's 'Gold'. Proper song, that is.

It's always struck me as a very strange anthem, insisting that you believe in a god and a monarch, or even worse pretend to if you are an atheist and a republican.

I would imagine that Rooney does not sing the national anthem due to his republican heritage. He is also a rude buffoon.

You could say much the same about the armed forces. But now the Tories are cutting them.

No. Why don't you explain to me why a footballer doesn't have the right to choose not to sing the national anthem if they don't agree with it?
How is this a case of the footballer 'losing all sense of social perspective'?
I know it's a stretch to believe, but maybe Rooney just doesn't agree with the words in the anthem and so chooses not to sing them. This doesn't automatically mean that he isn't passionate about playing for England (I think Rooney is the least of our worries in that department).
No one knows the reasons but him, and no one has the right to accuse him of losing perspective, being passionless, rude, or anything else on the basis of his failure to sing a song! (Evidence from other areas of his life or footballing career may point towards these things, but I don't see what singing a ditty has to do with anything.)

Grrr is of course correct. Why should anyone have to sing a song made up in the 18th century to prop up the position of a German-born princeling as the price of playing football for England?
