Im annoyed for the irish they dont have a rep of eire flag that is ***** cheeky and i think you should spam IW for one, amusingly being a patriotric yorkshireman im yorkshire first, english 2nd and british 3rd :D i dont mind the union jack but i think a flag for each sub part of the UK would be nice but then again it could get silly, every state in america has a flag imagine if they had those!

 

i want a yorkshire flag though :D

It's probably because Ireland doesn't go to war and stays neutral in any conflicts.

Below is a quote from "Irish Neutrality" on Wikipedia

 

"Ireland has a "traditional policy of military neutrality". In particular, Ireland remained neutral during World War II, and has never

been a member of NATO or the Non-Aligned Movement."

 

 So perhaps they think that rather than play MW2 the irish would rather sit at home counting potatoes.

Thank you LordRoss, thank you.

 

 

As for some earlier post by Pin-Pin-Ire

 

"

Personally I believe the Tri-colour shouldn't be in the game.

 

 

 

Ireland is know for its neutrality and It seems wrong that it is used in a war game-even if it is an inverted version- :smileyhappy:"

 

 

 

Nice Point.

 

 

 

Also, an earlier post by yourself.

 

"I'm an Irish Nationilst but he can post the unionist flag if he want's, if that is his political belief.

 

 

 

We live in an age when we should be above such petty squabbles. Everyone is entitled to their political and religious beliefs."

 

Good point also, i do also believe that, but however it seems to me that this guy obvisouly saw the world Irish in the topic, read some posts, then decieded to put a pic of that flag up.

 

Of course its gonna p****** alot of Irish off. Thats why im against it in this thread, he can belief whatever he wants, but why spread it here?

There must be a beginning of any great matter, but the continuing unto the end until it be thoroughly finished yields the true glory.

Phew! Whatta load of bile! I'm glad to see the Scots have kept well-and-truly out of this nonsense. Just the usual Irish sectarian crap with the odd 'Engerlund nazi' fan chipping in. Maybe you could stay out of our football too and we'd all be happier.

Yeah, I did; going on and on about politics and sectarianism. One side's this and the other side's that...

 

Oh yeah, and some inflamatory remark about British and coalition forces 'going around invading other countries'. If that's the road you want to go down, then perhaps you'd like to hear that Ireland was one of only two countries to send official condolensces to Nazi Germany on the death of Adolf Hitler. Great lads!

1. It's the truth about Britain invading other nations, but that was in the past and would not happen again in these modern times. Cromwell literally butchered anyone that opposed him in Ireland and sent the women and children left in the cities off to the indies as slaves :(

 

2. I did know that, but at the Time, Ireland was not at war with Germany, the details of the Holocaust had not been revealed and De Valera later said that he regretted sending the condolences but it was his duty at the Time as Ireland was a Free Independent Sovereign Nation and he had to be diplomatic.

 

3. Sectarianism is (as defined be Wikipedia)

 

          "Sectarianism is bigotry, discrimination or hatred arising from attaching importance to perceived differences between subdivisions within a group, such as between different denominations of a religion or the factions of a political movement."

 

I have never in any of my posts been a sectarian. I believe that everyone is entitled to their own political and religious beliefs, I only step in if one person is inciting hatred in another. In this case the Labeling of the Irish People as being Sectarians.

If you didn't have the Celtic Rangers rivalry nobody would know you lot could play football (apart from Shanks, King Kenny, St John, Souness & Hansen).

 

Mind you, I don't think we'll be seeing much Scottish football in Europe anymore as I can't see any of the teams qualifying from next season.

Rangers and Celtic are SCOTTISH football clubs, based in GLASGOW, which is in SCOTLAND. They are two huge clubs who have had a great deal of success over the past century. The worst thing about these teams, and what holds them back in many respects, is the overspill of pathetic Irish sectarianism. This continually brings both clubs into disrepute and with it the wider Scottish game, which is madness when you consider the outstanding reputation of Scotland national team fans around the world for friendliness and good behaviours.

 

Oh, and I don't think we'll be seeing Liverpool in the Champions League again this season or in any European football next season for that matter. 7th in the league just now?
