We’re probably all a wee bit narrow minded Neal ... even though we might not mean to be. It’s just human nature.

I think really I’m just recognising the irrationality of what folk do whether it be tribal rivalry, sectarianism, style snobbery or whatever form it takes. Although clearly, some can have serious and lasting consequences.

Tolerance and balance is the trick but now you mention it that whole fake rugged, heritage ... office worker bollocks can f-ck right off

Not really...well...not in my case...(i hope) i like to think of myself as a denim-head rather than a denim-snob (I think supermarket jeans are dope af btw, cheap shit for the working man an'all) the only thing which does annoy me sometimes is the fashion crossover, the whole fake rugged, heritage...office worker bollocks.

I suppose it’s a bit like denim snobs hating those that wear designer jeans or supermarket jeans

I could understand the hate to some extent if peeps are from different backgrounds be it class, social, ecconomic, religious, but like Mr B points out.. in ours and many other cases the love/hate goes hand in hand. "I hate SWFC" why? "because i like SUFC" Wow, you've really thought about that one but i can excuse him because he's 9 not 39 but its seems to be the same mentality.

I was in the park last week kicking the footy around with our young'un, some other kid who was only around 6 years old walking across the field with his dad said "can i play too" i said "yes of course you can, what about dad's go in the nets (the posts were a tree stump, jumpers and a frizbee) first to ten..?" next thing this silly c**t starts shouting footy jargen at his confused looking kid... "Man on! Man on!! Down your line!! Get in there!!!! Go on Shoooooot!!!!!!!!" ect
Head in his hands when his kid missed, i was going to let his score anyhow...

What the fuck!

LOL

Totally agree with you in that respect JRD - the shame belongs to those that are involved, but it does infect the country.

I'm from Scotland, and it certainly isn't my shame.

Yeah, the ‘old firm’ goes well beyond a football rivalry.
It’s just pure sectarian hatred.
Scotland’s shame indeed

Luckily you don’t live in the west of Scotland and be exposed to the the ‘old firm’ rivalry
