Pyro closure

182

Pyrotechnics are not part of my Celtic experience.  For others, it is an important part.  So much so, that it will not be inhibited by Health & Safety rules or the club being fined.

I cannot say how valid the Health & Safety concerns are, but I have one friend with lung disease who tells me this issue presents a real danger.  Two months ago, a woman and child were injured by a pyro at the Livingston-Newco game.  The same week, a Paranaense fan lost his hand when lighting a device in Brazil.  I expect the rule is in place for valid reasons.

After more than a dozen fines from Uefa, Celtic have closed part of the standing section for Thursday’s Rennes game in connection with the on-going pattern of pyrotechnic use at European games.

The problem with pyrotechnic use at football games comes about because those who bring them – as long as they do not blow their hands off or suffer lung disease – are usually immune to the consequences of their actions.  There is no personal financial, health or reputational damage, those consequences fall on the club.

I have not asked Celtic about yesterday’s action but I know what the view will be, “I will be the one held criminally liable if there is an incident I do nothing to prevent” – was a previous comment on a different matter.

Celtic have held discussions with supporters’ groups, but a supporters’ group can merely influence, not control, what their own members and others do.  Individual fans cannot impose behaviour on other people.

I expect those who insist on setting pyrotechnics off at Celtic games will be fortified by the club’s actions, they are now a cause célèbre.  Don’t expect an introspective reflection on whether or not their actions are beyond reproach.  Place your bets on what happens next, my money is on more of all of this.

Really annoyed at Dave King for abdicating on a day we have Celtic business to prioritise.  Pretty distraught at the news too, we will miss him more than you will ever believe, he has been wonderful.  I doubt the Treble Treble would be possible without him.  Pick up on this tomorrow.

    He has no standing at all in the research, philosophy or psychology communities, but he’s earning a quick buck from a population seeking the popular modern ground of victimhood.

    You`re not referring to the ” me too ” movement , but you could be and you should be.

    Stefan Molyneux lives in the Alt-right nazi-flirting internet-cult bubble of promoting long discredited “scientific racism” theories.

  5. Good morning, friends, from a grey, damp and pretty foggy East Kilbride. Wonder of there’ll be a TIFO today to welcome the Board members onto the stage?

    I watched a few snatches and thought the guy was stupid.

     

     

    According to Molyneux, `40% of men do not reproduce…. because women say `No` . Really?

     

     

    Maybe there were well founded points in his presentation but I didn`t hear any.

  8. Macjay

     

    I had to Google Christina Papadopoulos .

     

    I would imagine her and Sefan Molyneux are just right for each other !!

    to be fair thats basically how other PLC AGMs work these days not just Celtic

     

     

    its how the fat cats at the top get away with shafting everyone else while paying themselves ridiculous rewards

  10. Anyway, far more relevant on CQN.

     

    I don`t suppose it can possibly `succeed` but I really hope Resolution 12 touches a nerve today.

    ` to be fair thats basically how other PLC AGMs work these days not just Celtic`

     

     

    True, of course but are we not `more than a Club`?

     

     

    More than a Club but a only Company at heart.

  12. Jesus Christ…

     

     

    There are Celtic fans who like Stefan Molyneux?

     

     

    People who like him are worth watching…

    I think you get it my friend.

     

     

     

    Look I am neither left or right wing.

     

    I get it that the likes of Stephan Molyneux and Jordan Peterson are labelled ‘right wing’ but to me they speak a lot of sense and offer a lot of solutions

     

    I myself voted FOR brexit .

     

    However at the upcoming election I will be voting for the labour party.

     

    The new manifesto has won me over.

     

    I am open to changing my mind on just about everything.

     

    I find solace and comfort in my views in the MGTOW community on youtube.

     

    Many like to portray us as ‘incels’ but as a mid life man [now 46] i often share much of my feelings toward modern anti men propaganda with younger lads i meet all the time at work.

     

    I wish to god somebody had talked to me about true female nature when i was an older teen.

     

    I have seen too many close friends and family members be destroyed by woman .

     

    Some men do not recover.

     

    I love and respect women . I have three daughters a mother and a sister.

     

    But I will guide my daughters a different way to the way the media and the state portay.

     

    I will teach my girls to respect their reproductive lifespan.

     

    I will teach them to find a good mate/bond whilst they are young and healthy and to not be so obsessed with meaningless university degrees and student debt.

     

    Plenty of time for a career in whatever they choose in later life.

     

    The greatest thing a woman will ever be is a good mother.

     

    The most important job in the world.

  14. STEFAN MOLYNEUX.

     

     

    A give me some of your money crank magnet.

     

     

    He once opined that World War 1 was a Jewish/Marxist conspiracy to eliminate the European aristocracy.

  16. Feminism is just about equality. Either you think women should get equal rights or you don’t. It’s as simple as that.

    ===============================================================================

     

     

    ” Feminism is just about equality “.

     

    With what ?

     

    Masculinism ?

     

     

    If feminism is just about equality , why did nature make men and women unequal ?

     

     

    Then the attempt to suggest that equality and equal rights and opportunity are the same thing.

     

    An entirely different matter .

  18. Anyone think those Irish are getting a bit uppity? Or how about Catholics, they should know their place shouldn’t they?

     

     

    FFS, no wonder fewer and fewer people post on here.

  19. With the natural emphasis on the AGM, Matt Stewart’s offerings last night have not received the acclaim they deserve. All I can say to him is gifted absolutely gifted.

    Taken me some time to frame an adequate reply to you.

     

     

    ” Wings ” in politics. For me now a meaningless concept much loved by the media .

     

    Just like the supposed opposites . Socialism and capitalism.

     

    ” Far right. ” .

     

    A common expression. When did you last hear the media refer to ” far left “?

     

    Loyalty to ” wings ” should be imho , a thing of the past. In relation to each issue , choose where your conscience takes you . Precisely , it would appear , what you have done.

     

    The class traitor concept should be as meaningless and outdated as the class system .

     

    I get the impression it is becoming so .

     

     

    ” The female nature “.

     

    I`m a bit uncomfortable with that generalisation .

     

    The media now , more than ever , is the message . The message perhaps conflicts with the natural instincts of SOME women. But they nevertheless feel the need to heed that message.

     

     

    Jordan Petersen. An absolute star . Expresses the kind of profound common sense I found and loved so much in big Jock. And in simple straightforward easily understood terms.

     

     

    Stefan Molyneux .New to me.

  21. Cork Celt

     

    Quite right too, I am guilty. Brilliant articles Matt – thank you.

     

    HH from the Celtic AGM

  22. Good morning to all you long suffering bloggers.

     

     

    I am here to apologise to one and all for the inordinate amount of shite I posted overnight or whenever.

     

     

    This was all down to drinking in a variety of Rutherglen establishments from 11.00 am till sometime or other and then topping up with a further 3 bottles of Australian Merlot (for the fruit content) when I got off the bus back.

     

     

    However this not being unusual and hence (I like that word) manageable, I then exacerbated my condition by eating a Ann’s fry sausage supper (and uniquely in human experience actually finding it tasty and not at all reminiscent of the bottom of a VD clinic bin bag).

     

     

    I’m now aff tae East Kilbride to do another wee tour …things can only go downhill!!

     

     

    Once again…muchos apologies!

     

     

    Hail Hail

     

     

    Matt

    Very impressed with that post mate.

     

    I am on the same page without the grammar skills to declare.

     

    thanks
