What has happened to Jacke McNamara just makes one realise that football is at the end of the day just a game. People's lives and families are far more important than that. My wife had a mini-stroke out of the blue just before Christmas. It makes you really focus on what is important. Let's enjoy the football but get rid of the bitterness and nastiness. Hope Jackie recovers fully.

{Ed033's Note - They couldn't beat the Scottish people physically in a fight because the Scottish people are too physically tough, so they have to beat the Scottish people mentally using Jedi Mind Tricks. It's called 'Divide and Conquer'. In order to conquer Glasgow, all they had to do is create 2 opposing football teams and let the Glasgow people fight amongst themselves.

What an odd post!?

11 Feb 2020 10:21:36
Your just about right Ed033 but more importantly they invented buckfast which is far more effective.

{Ed033's Note - Yes, but at least I got your attention

11 Feb 2020 11:07:41
I take it your not from Glasgow Ed?

{Ed033's Note - no, but that doesn’t mean I’m incorrect about the Divide and Conquer part

Hi again Ed033, take it you are not really familiar wi the Rangers Celtic Hibs scenario .

Celtic an Hibs were formed by catholic priests to contest the dominence of protestant Rangers FC of the time.

{Ed033's Note - I’m aware of it. Why do they take all these children’s games and put money into turning them into large time consuming adversarial events? Money, you might say, but I’m talking about the bigger picture. Some of you know that our conspiracy site shows the bigger picture.

Bluebilly, your actually wrong, as Rangers were not tied to anything, and were simply a sporting athletic club, it was only after Celtic were formed that the current blue side of Northern Ireland (who the majority worked in the shipyards started to follow rangers)

11 Feb 2020 14:06:44
Further comment johnjohn :- It's great to be corrected by other posters without being humiliated to high heaven for not being up to date on the facts.

Thanks for that mate no matter if your from the dark side or not and I mean that.

11 Feb 2020 13:54:08
Thanks for that johnjohn, always happy to be kept up to date.

However, I am 100% certain Celt and Hibs were formed by catholic priests tho and nothing will change the sectarianism that caused.
I don't believe that it will ever die as it's passed on generation to generation by each religious sect.

ps:- personally I could not care less the religious preference by these three clubs as I was brought up church o Scotland and went to a protestant school (now classed as non denominational) .

I have loads of catholic friends who like I am a staunch Rangers supporter they are of celtic but we still have harmless banter and jibes with each other.

Despite the Ed's bizarre reply to the heartfelt original post taking the comments in a strange direction, I would also like to wish Jackie and his family all the best in which is undoubtedly horrible time for them.

11 Feb 2020 14:32:59
It's true. Hibs then Celtic brought religion into Scottish football.

11 Feb 2020 14:53:33
Bluebilly, for once ime in complete agreemet with your reply above, pal.

11 Feb 2020 14:59:30
Ed already said it was to get our attention Only_a_game.

It is a banter page after all.

We all wish McNamara a speedy recovery tho.

Bluebilly, Hibs were not formed by priests, but by the Irish catholic community, thus becoming the first club in Scotland founded on sectarian principles. Celtic were founded by a Marist priest called Walfrid, ostensibly to raise money to aid the local Irish catholic poor, but were quickly taken over by other elements. They stole all the best catholic players from other clubs, including Hibs, to try to achieve some kind of prominence in the game.

They were openly sectarian, and even had a former IRA man lay a sod of Irish turf at their new Parkhead ground. All this time Rangers were an enthusiastic amateur team, founded by kids and open to all. Indeed, it has been said that if Queens Park had embraced the new professionalism at the time, they would have been the obvious team for Protestants to follow. However, as the years passed and Ulster workers came to Glasgow to work in the shipyards, they gave their allegiance to Rangers along with the many thousands of locals who found the encroachment of Irish republicanism into the game objectionable.

My late dad told me in his time following football, hibs were classed for a spell as a masonic team.

11 Feb 2020 16:36:06
My father, dead a while now, said the same and that there was a time the Board considered changing the name to Edinburgh City in 1940's -50's.

Dundee Harp / Hibernian -later United also had a significant role in polarizing the football public.

Just before this topic is closed and we get back to the football side I would just like to say.

Of all my mates and workmates who are football supporters of Rangers and Celts every catholic is a celts supporter none are Rangers supporters.

On the other hand any of them who are prody some say they support celts with no reason other than they say they are a winning club.

11 Feb 2020 17:05:13
Don't understand 'masonic' team. Did it mean players, fans, directors? Or just that they attracted a bit of support from a few local 'Proddies'? I've never come across that before, but it is certain that they were the first Scottish club founded on purely sectarian principles.

11 Feb 2020 17:28:33
I know 3 (off the top of my head) Catholic Rangers supporters, one with a season ticket in the Copland.

11 Feb 2020 17:47:38
Celtic ruined Scottish football by bringing religion into it. 👍.

11 Feb 2020 17:48:27
my god you people don't even get what the ed was saying, are you really that naive, hahhaha they brought sectarianism into the game we are so good, you are like children and not the geeks.

11 Feb 2020 18:50:04
I thought Celtic were just Hibs hiding behind their believe hoops. Lol.

11 Feb 2020 23:23:08
Swagman, I am happy that you know 3 catholic Rangers fans. In 68 years of following the club I have met none.

12 Feb 2020 13:27:38
That says more about your club than anything.
