Belfast Celtic Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just after the war in 1948, Belfast Celtic went into voluntary abeyance to stop the growing problems of religious aggro that were growing between clubs in Ulster.

As a piece of fan power, and in view of the recent threats sent to prominent members of the public, could we start a movement to demand that Rangers and Celtic do the decent thing, and go in to voluntary abeyance until these problems die out.

Not for ever; only 20 years or so.

I reckon it'd be more fun to make them swap colours for a few seasons Tongue

I think a merger could be the answer - no more Old Firm matches to stir up the passions, just the two sets of fans united in cheering on their team, defending the pride of Glasgow against visitors from Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. If that works I'll move on to solving the Israel-Palestine brouhaha.

Far far more likely to spawn FC Rangers of Glasgow and AFC Celtic. You've no idea how entrenched the situation is. Ever notice how the O.F. more than usually have the same sponsor?? It's because companies are scared if they sponsor one, supporters of the other side will desert them in droves. Don't know if it's just an urban myth but rumour has it the only green at Ibrox is the grass on the pitch and the only blue at Parkhead is that in the sky.

On Wikipedia:


Quote
The RUC was renamed on 4 November 2001 as a result of a 10 year reform plan for policing set up under the Belfast Agreement. This agreement required the creation of an Independent Commission on Policing for Northern Ireland, which became known as the Patten Commission after its chairman, Chris Patten. He originally proposed the name Northern Ireland Police Service; however the abbreviation NIPS was thought inappropriate for a variety of reasons.


What reasons?

Perhaps Manchester should be next on the list:

"The Daily Mail reports City's 1-0 victory at Ewood Park was tarnished a little by a section of their away support singing about the 1958 Munich air disaster. "


"Police arrest 34 at Manchester City and United Wembley game
Thirty-four fans were arrested in and around Wembley at Saturday's FA Cup semi-final tie between Manchester City and Manchester United, police said."

"City violence mars match joy
May 12 2008 by Ron Livingstone, Evening Gazette
A CARNIVAL atmosphere turned ugly in the closing minutes of a Boro goalfest which should have marked a glorious end to the season.
Violence flared as a surge of Man City fans bore down on police lines following the Riverside visitors’ only goal.
Chairs were ripped out and hurled at police - several officers were struck in the face."



"The FA are investigating after the Manchester United Wembley dressing room was trashed on Saturday night.
Following the FA Cup semi-final, which saw Paul Scholes dismissed for a violent challenge and United players in a bust-up at the final whistle with Manchester City players, Wembley officials found a wall had been vandalised in the away locker room."


GMP have released pictures of football fans police want to speak to after trouble marred last week's Carling Cup semi-final clash between Manchester City and Manchester United."




Football is fooling itself if it thinks it has driven hatred out of the game

They began to cross the car park on the east side of Wembley Stadium. They were in their late teens, they wore the red shirts of Manchester United and they seemed apprehensive.
Their fears were well founded. A few yards into their journey, they were ambushed by a blue-shirted mob of Manchester City supporters. The girl was insulted and spat upon, the lad was kicked and jostled. They broke into a desperate run; the girl weeping, strands of spittle clinging to her hair; the boy pale and frightened.

A screech of abuse pursued them as they raced between the parked cars. Then the mob turned to search for new victims in red shirts.

An eye-witness said he had seen perhaps a dozen fights in that same car park as the fans left the ground. Most of them involved groups of eight or 10. There would be goading, followed by jeering, then an eruption of fists and boots.
One incident involved two United supporters launching a kamikaze assault on some 30 or 40 City fans. There was a good deal of blood. At the centre of another small battle, a man tore off his belt and wrapped the strap around his fist, with the large buckle swinging sickeningly. 'He meant to do damage,' said the eye-witness. 'He was looking to open up someone's head.'
The police were at full stretch. They would arrive in numbers, often supported by colleagues on horseback. But when the violence was subdued, another scuffle would break out 150 yards away.
'You have to remember, these weren't kids,' said the witness.
'They were mostly around 40 years old. Red and blue, both sides, they knew what they were doing.'

Perhaps, like I said, all you can do is dilute it, by moving it to a bigger pond.

Could you not set up a [insert radical religious denomination here] club in Glasgow, against which the OF could both rail?

Merging Celtic and Rangers would not achieve a thing. As has been mentioned FC/AFC teams would form to get round it.

As for inappropriate names when the Belfast Giants hockey team was formed it was apparantly suggested they be called The Belfast Bombers, which would not be right

It was using the Belfast example as a precedent.

Frankly it's beyond a joke now, and I suspect these attempts will continue, rather than otherwise, leading, inevitably to ..........

Football has to carry the can, as our politicians, policemen and others in authority can't and won't.

Not a clue. However, don't Donegal Celtic now play at their old ground?
