section 43 guys who recently made the banner, are seriously considering Going into the art room again on Saturday Morning and making a big banner condemning Mc Bride Q.C. Words to the effect " we're not sectarian Mc Bride" I reckon we can get a banner looking good in 3 hours from start to finish. We have a paypal account already for 12th man. This is just a feeler to see if we would have any potential donators out there? we could make about 30foot banner for about 100. including hire of the building. I am sick to death of idiots like Mc Bride slurring Hibs, with no voice from Hibs fans retaliating from the terraces. Lets for once change it. GGTTH. Feedback please. If we go ahead any surplus cash to be used for further display flage. Thanks guys and girls. If we get enough people interested then we will post the paypal account.

If you're going to go to the trouble of producing a banner, it should probably say something a bit more forthright than "We're not sectarian."

How about

Stick your 'OOH AH' up your 'RArse', McBride

Should get a bit of media coverage... :hmmm:

How about something more like

"Football not faith" or "hibs not hooligans" or "Hibernian fc: FOOTBALL is our religion" or "this is Leith, not Glasgow" or "ooh ahh up the HIBS" or "Hibernian not hatred"

I'm running on empty here!

We shouldn't even mention McBride on the banner though, he'd lap it up. Celebrate the club only!

He's the type of media parasite that loves the oxygen of publicity. Make the statement without mentioning him.

Our club has been slandered by a self-publicising hypocritical ****bucket. We're constantly being fed the myth that sectarianism is "Scotland's shame". It's not. It's restricted to a small part of the country, and essentially focused on the supporters of two clubs. It's nothing to do with us, our club, our team, or our supporters. I have no desire to be part of it, and I have certainly no desire to be co-opted into it by McBride's lies.

The club's response has been weak and feeble. We deserve better than that. They should have demanded an apology and a retraction both from McBride, and from the media who allowed him to make the claim. That's not going to happen.

It seems to me that if there is any point in making a gesture, that it should be a public statement that will attract the same level of attention as the original insult. If it's a public statement, then it has to attract the attention of the public. With the best will in the world, "We're not sectarian" is about as newsworthy as "We're not librarians".

Either we should hit back hard, or we would be better maintaining a dignified silence.

I actually heard the show coming back from work in the car and I was outraged by the comments he made. How many people do you think heard it,? The show probably doesn't have that many listeners so I would suspect not many.

Now thanks to .net, Hibs statement, newspaper coverage, tv and radio talking about it Hibs name is being constantly linked with the IRA even in terms of denial. This seeps in to the public conciousness.

Now you are talking about banners!

We need to let this one go and get back to being the non sectarian, non racist, non sexist club that we are and ignore these west coast creeps like McBride.

No offence but that's the sort of 'stick your head in the sand' attitude that we mock Celtic, Rangers and Hearts fans for. If someone had said that Hibs fans were, in the main, racist would you still think that we shouldn't refute it?

Beefster I disagree, these are the actions of a man who is using the "everyone else does it-so why are we getting pulled up for it " argument. His fundamental error is that the example he has given, Hibs, is a bad one and his accusations have no foundation whatsoever. We all know that we are not a sectarian club and that we do not sing the songs he has accused us of, he has only picked on us because of the ramifications of choosing another club (not far away from his own).

It seems to me that these are the actions of a silly man, using a silly argument to deflect the attention away from his own organisation, therefore IMHO he should be ignored.

I though lawyers were supposed to be smart.

McBride's comments were reported in the national press AFAIK. If they aren't refuted, it will leave some readers with the belief that we do chant pro-IRA stuff.

Depends what McBride means exactly but it is a myth that songs that could be referred to as in support of the IRA have never been heard from Hibs fans in recent years, certainly they were clearly audible in 1990s. And I heard 3-4 Hibs fan shout Up the Ra at game against Hearts last season. And have also heard some Hibs fans singing The Famine Song in last 2 years.

Not that I neccesarily have any problem with this, just as one should not only associate the Briitsh Armed forces with Amritsar, Irish famine, the Culloden aftermath etc there is more to the IRA than the worst provisional IRA atrocities.

Also notthing wrong per se with being sectarian - there may be case for a banner referring to sectarian hatred but that is different.

Would rather not have one mentioning religion, since IRA chants don't really have anything to do with religion anyway and I'm not too comfortable with one about football being a religion, but that's just me.

Personally would go with one along the lines of;

"Paul McBride-Your lies have been exposed"

Then one directly under it saying;

"We support our team, not terrorists"

Or even if people would rather not mention McBride at all, the last one on its own would get the point across pretty well as I think everyone would know what we meant.

I agree, this is a banner regarding some *rse claiming that we sing, essentially pro-terrorism songs. Not so much. Religious debate. The remarks this cretin mcbride made are that far off the mark that I think any clued up football fan knows that thus guy obviously talks out of his *rse. For me, any banner which has a dig at mcbride shall suffice.

How about "Paul McBride is a kiddy fiddler"?

It's an allegation, totally without foundation or evidence, that would undoubtedly cause huge offence. A bit like what he did to us. And with it being purely malicious and solely motivated by tit for tat pettyness, we'd be speaking a language that anyone of an Old Firm persuasion would understand.

He apologises and admits we don't sing IRA songs - we apologise and admit he doesn't interfere with children.

Have a word mate, McBride used a public media to slate Hibs Supporters as a whole, so those self-same supporters, [obviously minus you], react via a public announcement , a banner at a football match. It offends you in some way and is stopping you from attending a game. My you are thin skinned aren't you.? We as Hibs supporters have every right to answer the allegations made against us and IMO a banner telling the football world the truth is an acceptable way to do so. After all, we aren't going to be invited onto a radio show to refute the allegations now are we ?

I've heard nothing relating to the IRA. Absolutely nothing. It would be interesting to know the specific songs that have been supposedly sung by our support.

Agree 100%

I'm not sure there is much of a difference...it's all about the definition of the word "sectarian" and the modern ones all emphasise intolerance.

Maybe it's better to build bridges. Pitch in for an early Christmas present. The Hibs shop does a nice old fashioned alarm clock - I'd even pay for the double A battries, and put them in myself. Send it by courier to his home address. A tasteful note of forgiveness would be a nice accompanyment.

"We're not sectarian" is rubbish. "Football is our religion" is much better. More imaginative, more intelligent.

On another note, I'm proud to me a supporter of a club where a small group of fans can take up their own time and money to create banners for matches. We have had a rubbish season, but standing up at the back of the new east with the rest of the singing support has made it a good day out every home match. I have two friends who go to games with me regularly, who were not even football fans before last season, never mind Hibs supporters! Now they are hooked!

Thanks for all the donations so far, really is a massive help not only for this weekend's banners but for future displays to make Easter Road more colourful.

We want this group to grow and to become more sucessful, so if you are interested in meeting before games, helping with displays or coming to away days please sign up at www.sect43.co.uk

Thanks again, we are the Hibs

Frankly the prospect of seeing an embarassing banner has put me of going to ER to this Saturday, was going to go along if a new manger in place.

Hahahahahahahaha...seriously? Oh My God. Letting a Q.C. Slag your teams fans off for being sectarian is fine. But to use freedom of speech to retaliate is not. I honestly seriously can not believe someone would not go to a game because of a banner that defended its own fans. Each to their own I suppose.

Thank you all for the donations. Please now stop as we have reached our target. A massive thank you. I am posting a pic of a graphic letter I have just done for the sect43 banner that will also be out on saturday. I am going with this look as I am limited on time I have to get all of us in the room and start, and this is an easier of a lot of options. I think it looks good. The banner will be displayed in the east. Still time to put your ideas forward. I however can't accept ideas after 0800 Friday Morning. We will be making the flag at 10a.m.

The Paul Mc Bride = Liar is the most favourite just now and also something along the lines of " H.F.C. Fans NOT SECTARIAN. Keep the ideas coming please. Once again on behalf of you all and the Sect43 guys who will be helping out a big THANK YOU for making this happen
GGTTH

For some reason I can't upload a picture. It doesn't seem to accept it

Paul Mc Bride = Liar

A very minor thing, but personally I don't like the equals sign, I think that either

Paul McBride - Liar
or
Paul McBride: Liar

would look better. Not particularly important though, and others may disagree.

As always, look out for the spelling - there's nothing that would scream 'wee Tims' quite like a misspelt banner...

1995 and 1999 in East Stand in centre - it was the Boys of the old Brigade - though it is about IRA pre-Provisional split. "There's only one Gerry Adams was also sung at one of these games" - know not about the IRA per se but had it been sung by Celtic fans the same morons posting above would have been frothing at the mouth! At both ER and Tynecastle last season Up the Ra was clearly audible from some fans (at half time at Tynecastle, East Stand at ER).

The Soldiers Song (again not an IRA song per se but see comment above) was sung by some at 1991 cup final.

some of these ideas are a little..... simple. there's not really much point in a banner unless it has a bit of wit or charm. 'FOOTBALL is our religion' is a good idea, as it is a beacon to every other club that Hibs fans do not want to be associated with sectarian garbage. it also proves a point as well of distancing our philosophy from any idea outside of the stadium. no union jacks, no che guevara banners, no palestinian flags, no 'god save the queen'. just football and the hibees.

Early eighties, maybe up tae about 84/5 at the latest is the last time I heard any of that nature and even then it was an Irish song rather than an IRA song. Perhaps you forgot tae turn your walkman off?

Firstly, well done to you all in getting this off the ground. IMHO, I wouldn't even mention P McB. It will only appeal to his already over-inflated ego. The other two will get the point over succinctly and then he (and his apologists) will get the message loud and clear.:flag:

Number two doesn't make any sense so definitely number one.

However, I don't think we need to be making a statement against sectarianism. We were accused of supporting terrorism, not sectarianism.

Which is why I think that my suggestion;

"We support our team, not terrorists"

As I see it, the Paul McBride - Liar one would directly address his allegations, the others being a response to various other attempts to drag us into the wider sectarianism debate.

Maybe it's better just to have 'football is our religion'. That gets across the most important point (IMO) - that we are not interested in bringing politics or religion or anything else into football.

Erm... the point of a banner saying 'Football is our religion' is that it means we don't equate ourselves with any particular religion. It is a bit ironic that some people on this thread think it would have the opposite effect and actually associate us with religion. It's like saying that we want to disassociate ourselves with the Nazi Party but we can't have a sign saying 'Nazis are c*nts'.

we would've had it up longer but we were given a bit of grief from stewards and so only really got 5-10 minutes from it, shame really as we spent so long on it but it will probably make a few appearances every now and then

What was on it that they didn't like? :confused:

As I stated the other day, I personally would not have mentioned religion but they surely can only censor banners which are offensive and I don't see anything offensive on the banner which was mentioned on here.

It wasn't so much what was on it that they didn't like as they hadn't actually seen it, they just didnt seem to like us doing it, also something about us taking up some seats although I've never seen many people sitting in that area so I don't see the problem with that.

Also we spoke to the head of security at ER on Friday and he said it'd be absolutely fine so I don't understand what all their fuss was about.
