In Topic: Morton Etiquette

Today, 12:31 AM

Considering we are in the same league as the likes of Dundee United, who in our lifetime have appeared in European Finals and Semi-Finals, and have produced players like Sturrock, Narey, Gough, Gallacher, Hegarty, Malpas, McAlpine, Ferguson, Robertson and more - to call Morton 'the famous' only really serves to parody ourselves.

Yeah not wrong but it justifies cynicism IMO. The below is a more extreme but ultimately correct assessment. Minus the overt homophobia.


They have always had a 'stigma' about them being a 'gay' club though.

Palestine and other countries politics are their things atm. Maybe one day


Maybe one day they'll admit to their own wrongdoings first. Small steps and all that.

The fact that folk are having a go at Partick over a bit of multicolored piping on an away strip speaks volumes. I don't remember Hearts getting this level of stick for their Save the Children logos. Whenever Rangers have made a nod to similar issues (rainbow laces) the seethe on their Twitter feed has been unbelievable. That tells you all you need to know about taking that "no need" side of the argument.
The best way to hound out the knuckle dragging nonsense amplified by the old firm is for the smaller clubs to keep plugging away at a more inclusive approach (although, Partick maybe aren't the best example to use here given their record with sectarian issues).
*edit - missing a word


Don't get me wrong, I'm not against it one wee bit. In fact, I'm all for it. I find it amusing though. :)

It has changed days from the time when Charan Gill tried to invest in Partick Thistle around 20-odd years ago, only for then owner Jim Oliver to rebuke him as 'some guy with a curry hoose'. Oliver then went on a rant in the press saying something along the lines of "couldn't care less if he was a black, one eyed lesbian saxophone player".

Who knows, maybe in 20 years time Celtic will open a chain of kindergartens.
