SHUT UP BILLY !

Having read an article from ‘hail hail media’ on the rantings of football agent Bill Mcmurdo’s son, also called Bill (I’m sure he’d prefer William, might even settle for Billiam!) and having also been able to have read a few of his and other blogs before, I thought I’d stick in my tuppenceworth, now I know this could get me onto Chris Graham’s naughty list but here goes!…..SHUT UP BILLY!

Now that statement isn’t aimed at Billiam himself but at the zombies as a support, I’m sure we’ve all read some form of literature from various sites or  blogs, whether its a screenshot of some neanderthalic thinking on twitter or a link to a blog with twisted logic and even worse comments sections, and as I read them I find myself thinking to myself  please just ‘shut up billy’.

I can confirm that the blogs are indeed riddled with twisted religious bigotry, countless peadophillic slurs against our club and the most surprising of all, rampant PARANOIA! Yes you heard me correctly paranoia. I’ve written about this before in my ‘tin foil loyal’ post regarding Charlie Greens bigotry comment, but this paranoia, fed by the inane ramblings of David ‘Leggo’ Leggate and the somewhat more coherent and better constructed blogs by the aforementioned McMurdo is more than just Chuck Greens ‘everybody’s out to get us’ siege mentality. No this paranoia has been eating away at the rangers support for quite some time before Charlie arrived on the scene. Paranoia can be a terrible thing, we Celtic fans should know right! But this is a different kind of paranoia, whereas we believed that we were being dealt footballing injustices, dodgy decisions, rfc* getting ‘their penalty’ when they needed it most, not to mention Farry-gate, Dougie-gate and everything in between, no, the paranoia that  engulfs the zombieco fans and bloggers alike forms around the idea that there is an orchestrated campaign to ‘Romanise’ Scotland and ‘wipe out the union’. Quite what this has to do with a now deceased and reformed tribute act to the club from Govan, or indeed football i’ll never know.

The belief that Stewart Regan and  Neil Doncaster have been placed in power by shadowy figures with this ‘romanist agenda’ and that Peter Lawell is pulling all the strings surpasses anything that you could label the Celtic fans as being paranoid about.

However there is a darker side to this tale as, if you happen upon any of these ‘rangers bloggers’ web pages you will sense a quite angry, and at times militant attitude from the writers themselves and the hangers on that post comments, quotes that have indeed come from zombieco manager himself are often used, things like ‘they have all kicked us when we are down’ or ‘ we need to mobilise and defend our traditions’ a favourite of the vanguard bears, what traditions is that exactly? ‘The bears are angered now and we will rise up’ ‘lets send this rebel scum back to where they came from’. (Wonder if you could make up a song from those sentiments?)

There are tales of Celtic being ‘enemies of the state’ and how there is ‘timmy propaganda’ at work, apparently even Tony Blair was in on it as he was a ‘closet roman’! They constantly go on about how this is a ‘war against their culture’. This is a football team we are supposed to be talking about here remember!

The wording of these blogs is carefully chosen to incite the hatred of all things celtic and their supporters and with their inflammatory language and the fact they are written with such gusto,  it may well be the cause of injury or worse to some poor sod who’s unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. (maybe after a sevco away game!)

One point that was raised that should be addressed is ‘the demonising of the Rangers support’ or more importantly ‘who is responsible for it’? There are many far flung tales given as response to this particular riddle, from Tony Blair and John Reid having a hand in it to the inevitible ‘it’s the schools’ argument but not one person suggested this, now bear with me (no pun intended) as its a little left field…..maybe….just maybe…. Is it possible that the people responsible for demonising ‘ra people’ are in fact ‘ra people’ themselves? I know crazy right! Maybe the fact that fans of many in clubs in Scotland and Manchester,Pamplona, Villareal and countless other fine cities dotted around Europe is because of the behaviour of the rangers support and the way in which they choose to ‘defend their traditions’?

I suppose though in the end it doesn’t really matter as no one likes them and they don’t care….except they do, there’s a lot of bears with sore heads out there over the fact they now know that they might have been the establishment club once upon a time and that time may come again,  but in 2012 when the burden of financial irregularities finally caught up with them and their ‘brethren’ couldn’t protect them as they were exposed on a national scale their club was treated with the contempt it deserved for scamming that eye watering figure of £94m and was consigned to the scrap heap for Chuckles Green to salvage, their response isn’t to take their medicine and be glad they were allowed to form a tribute act to a club they could follow follow and be allowed into senior football despite the fact they didn’t meet the correct criteria, no their response and attitude is ‘ this must be timmys fault somehow’ or ‘we should never have let them in in the first place’ or ‘its the kaffliks that done it’ that’s the attitude that demonises the rangers support, that and the shambolic behaviour when they are on the road in Europe which thankfully shall be spared of ‘ra people’ for the next few years at least.

When will they understand that…No, it wasn’t timmys fault, it’s not because their are Catholics in Scotland, it’s not the fact that there are faith schools in Scotland that you  aren’t liked, it’s because you think you can behave however you want wherever you are regardless of the rules or laws and we don’t ever…EVER have to say sorry, maybe that’s why no one likes you and you DO care!

  5. I wrote along these lines just prior to the decision to vote Sevco into SFL3. At the time I had a real worry that the reaction of the old support could well be immediate violent actions or a threat of such at some later date. Some may say my fears were somewhat unfounded but it is my opinion that the explosion depends on the length of the fuse. I may also add that I have witnessed some change of heart among a smattering of supporters. The article is quite long but hopefully it will prove to be of some interest. I have added comment where the subject matter has altered since first written.

    “Raging Bulls”

    http://followfollowfail.blogspot.com/2012/06/is-situation-affecting-your-personal.html

    It would appear from the above that perhaps with the potential for a large number of raging bulls running amok, all china shops in and around Glasgow might be under serious threat. I guess there are none so hateful as those who rankle and none so murderous as those who seek vengeance. Fans of the now-extinct-Rangers F.C. (before the CVA result) have certainly been hateful towards the rest of Scottish football over the years and have been known on not a few occasions to take it to the extremes of death threats and even murder. In their psychotic narcissism, they have been intolerant, to the extent of violence, towards anything or anyone that does not adhere to their egotistical righteousness. Like spoiled brats, who have been unfortunately pandered to for a hundred years or more, they react to challenge in the manner of demented, lusting bulls rampaging in search of fragile targets to satiate their vengeful desires. Such vicious bullying (forgive the pun) has been witnessed far beyond their own borders resulting in condemnation from countries, cities and football clubs throughout the U.K., Europe and beyond. The venomous language of their web sites and blogs has a terrifyingly threatening ring to it. The so called uncontrolled dominant minority is so volatile, it is a justified and realistic deterrent to any potential acceptance of the genuine few, far less the whole.

    It is a worrying thought that the violent behaviour of the now-extinct-Rangers F.C. fans would probably continue even if a new team, whatever it may be called, is devoid of its greatest rival and playing in a lower division. It would appear to be so ingrained in their psyche that it is nigh impossible to imagine any significant change in spite of a relocation (prior to Sevco and its vote into SFL3). In fact, demotion could very possibly result in a retaliation that has not seen its like in Scottish football ever. If their team ends up in the S.F.L., it would be expected that clubs in the lower divisions would bear the brunt of their wrath (till now this has not happened – at least not anything that has been reported). Unlike clubs in the S.P.L., whose supporters may have sufficient numbers to proffer some defence, S.F.L. clubs on the whole will have, at most, only a few thousand to confront the rampaging hordes. For the majority these defences would most probably be so limited as to create a ‘Three Hundred Spartans’ scenario. This to me would be the death-knell of that particular S.F. league as supporters drift away club by club rather than try to confront the onslaught each would face at least every fortnight.

    Moreover, I contend that the novelty of following a new club in the S.F.L. would only be a very short lived distraction for that large number of fans who would most likely revert to type. I am certain there are those among them that would choose violent disruption at local S.P.L. matches as preferred entertainment to watching their adopted club playing, as they would see it, an insignificant game against what they would regard in footballing terms as a “nobody” (again, this has not yet come to pass). Once again their behaviour would make football hooliganism the pinnacle of Scotland’s football reputation. Of course, as is their wont, they would find someone else to blame, dragging all of us into the same cesspit, deserving or not. Once more the iron fist of a knee-jerk government would pound the innocent while ignoring the guilty (the new laws on sectarian behaviour had just been passed). Some might argue that the calamity could be averted if the new club were not allowed a place in any Scottish league and this looks more and more to be a possibility (I sure got that wrong). However, I seriously doubt this would eliminate the potential mayhem that could ensue no matter what the outcome from the present now-extinct-Rangers F.C. Crisis (again, prior to CVA). These type of supporters would only have more time and excuse to direct their venom at any football club in their sights. It is not beyond the realms of possibility for this to mean non-league football too. It seems a bleak picture but it is one painted to warn rather than to frighten. Preparation is at least half the battle.

    I am sure there are many who would question my depressing negativity. I have no physical evidence to support my theories. The proof for me lies in a gut instinct that tells me to be wary. My deductions are founded on the total lack of remorse, the blatant absence of an admission of guilt and the determination to lay the blame on others. Most threatening of all is the rallying calls to arms in tweets and blogs in pursuit of what these supporters see as warranted retribution (now fuelled even more by Green, McCoist and several ex-players). Not a single person from the now-extinct-Rangers F.C. (pre CVA) has made the slightest attempt to seek reconciliation with other clubs or supporters, neither director, member of staff nor supporter. On the contrary, still steeped in self-centred expectancy, they bleat cries of self pity. They practically demand leniency, clemency or mercy depending on their mood, all the attributes that their ex-club failed to display when begged for by others in its time of power-broking, as witnessed by the now-extinct-Airdrieonians F.C. When the crocodile tears trigger no response, they are most certainly not averse to using threats. Furthermore, they have demonstrated they have lost none of their disdain for Scottish football, whether towards the authorities, other clubs and above all other supporters. Their superiority complex is the very antithesis of the reaction expected from those who have been humbled and defeated. For me, this very complex is what will instigate the need for revenge. Those who appear, in their eyes at least, to have contributed to their downfall, will be firmly in their sights, as alluded to in the verbal threats of their resurrected “hero”, Mr. S. Jardine. It is not inconceivable that in the melee there could well be “civilian casualties”. It would seem that almost all now-extinct-Rangers F.C. (pre CVA) fans are, one suspects deliberately, blinded to the wrongdoing of their club. Nor do they recognise their own part in it through wallowing in and accepting the benefits of its misdeeds, not dissimilar to handling stolen goods, one might say. Increasingly they perceive themselves as the victims as others are portrayed more and more as the perpetrators for laying upon them the hand of justice. Justice is a virtue for which they have displayed very little respect throughout their ex-club’s history resulting in a perception that for them, special treatment is merited. It is this narrow-minded interpretation that has seen them unblushingly accept favours, lord it over all rivals, have their destructive way with numerous people and places offering them hospitality. Above all, embedded in their minds is the belief that gaining undue advantage or reaping undeserved rewards is absolutely acceptable provided it is not exposed or, even worse, condemned. Can anyone truly deny the potential of such a mindset to act ad extremis when trapped. The entangled current affairs of both their ex-club and the new entity has undoubtedly ensnared these supporters into fear, fury and hatred. Warped by a disingenuous Scottish media and a succession of shifty rescuers and their cohorts, they at least imagine if not believe, that all other fans are but crazed hunters. As can only be expected from cornered prey, rather than reason a feasible and bloodless escape plan, they are apt to rush headlong into a fight. I believe that when they finally retaliate, they will resemble more the raging bull than the cunning fox.

    1. Well put PB must have been a pain editing all the (pre cva) patter lol but totally agree their sense of self importance mental, the way I see it when Celtic fans go anywhere in Europe or Scotland the atmosphere is one of ‘let’s have a party’ but when zombieco go on tour the atmosphere is more ‘we are in your area, what you gonna do about it?’ Wait till the much heralded ‘fantastic journey up the leagues’ turns sour and the bear will show its true colours.
