sure, something can be considerate and functional. I'm not sure this is truly considerate. it's a corporation marketing scheme. regardless, even if someone at LFC involved in making this was attempting to be considerate, they went about it in a poor way that swallows up any consideration.
if the Red Sox released a picture of Hillsborough painted red (ok, the color doesn't work here) with it's logo beside it and "Sweet Caroline" at the top, I don't think that would go down particularly well.
the point is, that isn't a memorial. that's a marketing scheme. the focus isn't on what happened. it's on LFC.
despite my general distaste with internet tributes, you can do one actually in memory of what happened that is well-meaning. I think this particular picture was well off the mark there.

I dont think there was anything other than a sincere attempt at a tribute to the lives lost on that day... I mean, was it anywhere else that the LFC Mainsite, twitter account or FB page? Media that caterers to LFC supporters... There was a story that accompanied it, documenting a LFC supporters first hand account of being in the towers...
I may tend to agree with you if LFC took out a full page ad in the new york times...
