They have realised that they need some charges thrown at the Tims, and are IMHO simply throwing this in the ring to say -

Token .........quite apt.

Also,as others have alluded to there are many genuinely offensive banners to have been paraded at Celtic Park.

Is this one any worse than others before........

Alleged Party in Breach: Celtic FC
Match: Celtic v Norwich City
Date: 24th July 2012

No way :D Clearly this has been discussed with the scum under the duvet and agreement reached as to it's outcome.

Vincent de Lunny .... we need to be seen to be impartial.

Liewell .... aye ok, kill two birds with one stone, blame the groin brigade and issue a half match censure.

Ionabrick
20-09-2012, 17:31
I must admit on the way to the QOS match we were discussing whether Vincent Lunny had passed away unnoticed.

Seems there has not been one single, solitary incident requiring his highly paid attention so far this season.

Would it be cynical of me to proffer an explanation?

No Rangers. = no need for a Compliance Officer.

So here we have yet another tarrier enjoying a free ride whilst imposing a further financial burden on the other clubs.

When on earth will they waken up to what's afoot here??

Has anyone also reported them to UEFA for allowing political protests outside the doors of their ground a few weeks ago,Has Lunny brought charges against them yet for the offensive poppy banner,has Lunny brought charges against them yet for the picture depicting Ibrox on fire with Rangers FC replaced by Huns FC.

You know the oddest thing about all these banners is they are held up in clear view of their directors box and nothing is ever said or done about it and allowed to continue.

They constantly fly banners of a political nature inside their ground,which is frowned upon by UEFA/FIFA and is against both's rules.

The SFA are aware of this along with the other corrupt ones known as the SPL,what do they do to a club that's breaking the rules on a weekly basis.....Nothing.

ClockworkOrange

I won't hold my breath for any significant punishment.

The cops are still actively investigating to try to identify the yahoos that brought in the banner.

That club have previously declined to proactively search ticket holders for that section prior to entry, with any luck the pressure that is being applied (however lightly) by police, the SFA and others will leave them with no choice but to search in future.

The Green Bigots have clearly had the implicit approval of the club to do as they please, giving them exposure for their rancid banners which are only taken down once the cameras have had time to capture them.

I have to give credit to one Celtic-supporting MP who has done a good job in making sure that club cannot continue to turn a blind eye to bigotry.

Trying to con the public who I hope see right through the charade.

The Rangers are whacked within days but two months down the line they think up something to show they are supposedly even handed and even take things up with the manks.

A blind man can see through this - Rangers and their fans are rightly now making a lot of noise about the blatant agenda that exists against them in Scottish football, so we'll slap our good friends Celtic on the wrist about something to look as if we're impartial, but all the while plot behind the scenes to make sure we keep kicking who we really hate for as long as possible.

Wouldn't surprise me if this is constucted by Liewell and Rhegan to make it look like the SFA aren't biased. The anti poppy banner was covered up and this will be a slap on the wrist at best.

But this 2 month old incident could just be a deliberate ploy of deflection, just as I believe Hugh Keevins ban from Celtic Park could also be a ploy by Liewell and Keevins created for a more sinister reason!


I don't trust any fair minded actions now when it comes to Celtic and their cohorts outside their club.

I had not seen the banner, but now I have I think that it is disgusting on a number of levels. The police should get involved as allowing that banner is an encouragement of sectarian violence. CFC scum should be taken for it by the police before the SFASPL scum can do anything.

The whole thing of having a 'Green Brigade' get up my nose. We are expected to ignore the conotation of the word 'brigade' when associated with CFC scum and their political affiliations. We know what it is about. It is all about declaring their support of murderous scum in Ulster. That is what it is about. It is about stirring sectarian violence. It puzzles me why it is not obvious to the authorities, except that they are now ran by RC's who turn a blind eye to CFC scum and their blatent breaches of the law and rules of the game.

The game is corrupt. It stinks.

Dear god; let's not do this argument again. Some folk are allowed to not be offended.

To be honest, what's really strange about this is that it's one of the least offensive banners ever flown by the green brigade. The sniper obviously has severely dodgy connotations and I'm always amazed that they get away with such violent and sectarian imagery but at least there was no paramilitary emblems for once. Calling us zombies and devolved apes is not particularly pleasant but it's getting staggeringly close to football banter rather than their usual sectarian wibbling.

Anyone got any explanation why they are being called up for this one and not any of the other much worse ones - particularly the poppy or 'go to war' sectarian violence one. Trying to look at it impartially, Celtic could well defend themselves here. So, are the SFA not really in celtic's pocket and just being their usual incompetent selves trying to find something to do Celtic for? Or, like we all suspect, is it planned to be a slap on the wrist to pretend that they punish Celtic as much as anyone else? Or is it even worse - an accusation against Celtic that Celtic know they can defend and very publically be seen to 'prove' to the SFA that they are not nasty or bigoted at all and just have jolly craic??

I think the most sensible way for us, as a fan body, to play this would be to say that while we deplore the violent imagery, we are unsure why such a relatively insignificant banner is getting such attention while far more genuinely offensive ones have been ignored. That way we undermine any attempt by them to claim this is a valid punishment and highlight their much more putrid activities. Also highlighting that we can ignore the cheap but acceptable insults while drawing attention to the bizarre obsession with gunmen.

Football banter my arse. Only if you close one eye to ignore the sniper does it in any way resemble banter, and it is clearly not meant to.

You're right there have been worse banners that should've been punished, and I'd support anyone making this point, but this one is bad enough in and of itself.

I'll be amazed if the result is anything more than a token fine, but at least it might force that club to think twice about giving that mob a free rein in future, as they'd have to assume further charges could follow in future if similarly vile banners are displayed.

It's about showing them that we won't ignore or accept this bigotry, and that we can do things to maintain pressure and not allow them to act with impunity. The police are onto this as well - we'll see where that leads - if this keeps the GB scum in check and keeps these banners out of sight then it will be job done.

If anyone seriously takes offense at that cartoonish attempt to provoke humour then you've got serious problems.

I'll tell you what it really is - it's a set-up.

There's no way this entire scenario has been designed to do anything other than make Rangers and Rangers' supporters out to be humourless, mortally-offended wee hand-wringers.

It'll make Rangers look a laughing stock when they trumpet it across the UK and it gives the Celtic support more ammunition for paranoia.

Don't really disagree with anything you say. If it is an attempt to reign in the groin brigade then great. But why this banner and why now? And do we really think that the SFA have even the inclination, much less the balls to really take on Celtic. If they really wanted to do this, why not go for an unambiguously dispicable banner - time scale's clearly not an issue as this is months old.

Ohms007 raises important points which echo my fears. Is this an utterly cynical attempt to tee Celtic up with a situation which could be spun to make themselves look good? I agree the sniper should be unforgivable but they bizarrely seem to always get away with ones clearly labelled as terrorists so could squirm out of one without sectarian paraphernalia.

It's just a bizarre banner to chose if the idea is genuinely to punish Celtic.

tims really getting on my nerves. So the irony would be there dressing up as zombies against kilmanorck on oct 27 so if someone let rip and fired shots at the zombies it would be okay?

They must have been doing portraits of their family members to come up with the outlines for that banner. After all, they aren't even animals. They are monsters.

Just moving the attention away from last weeks announcement that they have no case to answer re ebt,s.this will be masterminded by lawell in an attempt to convince he is trying to rid the poison from his club

So 2 months down the line they do something, this has all the hallmarks of once again trying to deflect the Rangers agenda.

They have realised that they need some charges thrown at the Tims, and are IMHO simply throwing this in the ring to say -

'see we do ra Sellick as well, its not all Rangers' :roll:

Also is it me or are they trying to charge them 4 times for basically the same thing???

bang on the money - my thoughts exactly when reading the article

They now have previous for offensive banners as they have been fined by UEFA for an offensive banner . They seem to think that they are a above the laws of the game. Or are in control of the game.

Absolutely correct Blags. The SFA waited two months before they uttered a cheep about it. It is so patently obvious a deflect job by them that it is very embarrassing.

STV allegedly say it mocks the liquidation of Rangers. Rangers haven't been liquidated yet.

i noticed stv didnt show the banner, only rag i saw today was the star and they bizarrely have a pic of the scum holding up green and white cards. any other media outlets actually show the fooking thing? also describes as 'the outline of a US soldier (w.t.f) with a green shamrock symbol on his back shooting a zombie represents Irish republican terrorism'. if they can describe it then they must have seen it, then why not print it, coonts!

It's nothing more than a pathetic show of window dressing nonsense from Father Lunny and Co.

Over the years we've had a whole host of blatant terrorist supporting banners from Celtic fans and never a peep from the SFA, but a "satirical" one about shooting rival fans as zombies suddenly gets their attention?

Gi'e me peace.

They really must think we button up the back. The SFA/SPL/CELTC cabal are kidding no-one with this pish. Slowly but surely all these corrupt bastards will be swept away when the majority realise the game is ****ed until every last stinking one of this mob are rooted out for good. It's an absolute joke again thinking we're daft enough to think this is genuine after all the OTHER stuff celtc's had conveniently swept under the carpet. Puppet Looney can go **** himself!

Timothy will fall back on the "not sectarian, it Political" pish he has hidden behind for years and the SFA have let it go.
Am I right in thinking that UEFA and FIFA have made statements that Politics and football shouldn't be mixed and have they not actually taken action against Clubs for making Political statments?

A gunman on a banner in a section of Parkhead that makes no secret of its love of the IRA. A small number of morons embarrass Celtic again

while this should be welcomed , I`d have to ask why it takes almost 8 weeks to come out

I think Liewell has become concerned that the bias shown by the SFA is becoming too obvious. Just like the banning of brother Keevins its time to balance the books. Justice has to be seen to be done (even if its not actually done)

Wonder which legal eagle will accompany the Timothy executives to the hearing, now that the gay one has expired. Surely not Harper McLeod!

What a rag bag outfit who can't even turn up to a football hearing without being tooled up with lawyers. Intimidatory ---- surely not.

This ^^^

If anyone seriously takes offense at that cartoonish attempt to provoke humour then you've got serious problems.

I'll tell you what it really is - it's a set-up.

There's no way this entire scenario has been designed to do anything other than make Rangers and Rangers' supporters out to be humourless, mortally-offended wee hand-wringers.

It'll make Rangers look a laughing stock when they trumpet it across the UK and it gives the Celtic support more ammunition for paranoia.

Surley no-one from Rangers was daft enought o lodge an official complaint?

Therefore:

WHO in the SFa initiated this and what is his relationship to Lawwell?

THAT is the one question we should be asking.:confused:

I am offended by the banner, the iferrence made by it and the scum who paraded it. In this pc world it is okay to be offended by such things. In Lybia we would storm the piggery and burn someone, or declare a fatwah against them. I am offended let the law prevail and get the scum.

Appears to me that it opens the doors to retrospective punishments for banners.

Sheltic being a test case.

Surely we are not getting this rammed up us in the future - nothing surprises me

SFA ruling will be along the lines of a slap on the wrist and a suggestion to the authorities at Piggery to do something about their atrocious spelling.

If the ape had been wearing a papal garment or a sellik tap and a crucifix, this would have been headline news and would not have taken this length of time to come to the fore.

I take on board about being offended by these sorts of things. But all I would ask you to do is to substitute what our fans are portrayed us, by some other section of the community that you live in - Homosexual, Single Mothers, Moslem, Roman Catholic, black and not to mention Oirish (the plastic variety).

Do you seriously think these retards would get away with that? Well why should they get away with it when they do it to us?
.

IMO this is a banner of propaganda - this wouldn't have looked out of place in 30's Germany with the ape being a Jew and the sniper a Nazi during WWII.
