Just heard tonight that Celtic are installing a new statue outside Parkhead, apparently it's for Billy McNeil (I'm surprised with that as he's not deid yet) and the installation will be lit up with colour changing lighting. Every colour that is except blue.
Can you imagine sitting in a meeting as a client opposite a consultancy outfit. You represent a large employer, a leader in your field, a self professed bastion of equality & fairness. How embarrassed must you feel or how confused must the contractor be when you specify EVERY & ANY colour except blue?
I'm well aware most sporting institutions have their rivals, we are no different, but I'd expect Hibs to avoid the awkward pettiness by specifying a white or even green light,,,,not anything but maroon?

I avoid maroon like the plague. I had a great Sony Erickson phone once but just never warmed to it because of the maroon trim. Maroon clothing? Not one item. And a car? Not in a million years.

Maroon's actually a pretty nice colour IMO, although it doesn't really suit me so I don't have many maroon items if any (I also probably subconciously avoid maroon things)

I must say though, must be ***** being a Hearts fan and having to pretend you don't like green. I mean come on basically all plant life on this planet is green, it's one of the few objectively pleasant colours

Nothing to do with hearts (well maybe a little actually) but maroon genuinely is a horrible colour. Even the word maroon is awful.

My dad was a Gala man and a keen rugby follower so I was brought up watching and supporting Gala . Their deadliest rivals Hawick play in green, so as you can imagine, colour doesn't really matter to me, it's who's wearing the jerseys and what the club is all about that is important. That said, there can be no better looking strip that our traditional emerald green with white sleeves. Simply the best.

I don't see much wrong with an official statue not being lit in the colours of a rival.

Enjoying seeing your rival get beat in any game is small minded and petty but it's pretty normal. It is sport and rivalry is fine.

:agree: Same here - I also went through a prolonged spell of deliberately wearing something Hibs related to work, went on for several years - mostly socks or ties but was inspired by spending 2 years sitting opposite a yam who actually wore a maroon suit to work most days. I deliberately bought an emerald green one and wore it quite a bit at work and wore it to his wedding years later:greengrin

Maroon isn't really a colour, it's red that a brown substance has seeped into.

Couldn't agree more - in my humble opinion (in football terms) it is perfectly reasonable to be small minded, petty and above all irrational - I really like Maroon 5 (sincere apologies for typing this combination but could see no real way round it and for the admission !) but I would never buy an album (showing my age here) of theirs or anything connected to them - just hearing their name makes me feel ill - as I say small minded, petty ....... !

I own nothing maroon very simply because it's a rank colour and doesn't suit me. Neither, for the most part, does green so my collection of green clothing is pretty much limited to Hibs tops.

I don't see what the problem is with Celtic's statement (apart from the rather odd although not unique idea of having a statue erected for someone who's not yet deid). Imagine we get - (and frankly I think we should) a statue of the Famous 5 and/or Joe Baker for example and the decision is taken to light them with a rotating variety of colours (as noted elsewhere, it would have to be green + white, and only green + white, if I was in charge of that decision)

Surely the notion of having Eddie Turnbull illuminated by Jambos Maroon or Hun Blue is simply wrong, much like Billy McNeill illuminated in Hun Blue would be?

I am now in my mid fifties and have always considered myself a mature, balanced individual. I embraced equality and fairness many decades ago before it was trendy and indeed was given the task of promoting such values in my large organisation, which we became leaders in our field. I now do voluntary work helping people in unfortunate situations and will go to my grave believing we are here to always help our fellow human beings who share this earth with us.

But, I still insist on the green fruit gum and even if I was in mortal agony, wouldn't use pile cream if it was maroon. Horrible, horrible colour...

I nearly stopped drinking red wine because it once made me sick afterwards with all that maroon in my gut, packed a girlfriend in because her henna hair do was too close to that vile colour and crashed my mate's Hyundai Accent which was maroon with a white bonnet.

I rebelled against wearing a maroon blazer at James Gillespies High School and genuinely wore my Hibs top under my Hearts top when playing for Tynecastle Boys Club, Mr Dalglish found it amusing and told me that If I ever did that again then Iwas getting Sine Die'd from the club.

I have always hated that colour. My grandfather, on my mothers side, once bought me a maroon scarf when I was about 5 or 6. I didn't want to touch it and soon swapped it with the rag and bone man for a goldfish.

Would it be classed as small minded and petty if you were to go shopping in the Thistle Centre in Stirling and hide all the Hearts calendars and annuals behind Hibs ones? If so then I am very very small minded and petty :greengrin

I do the same in Falkirk town centre.

I'm easily pleased. :greengrin

Mind you I was never very keen on that works van, you must have got that at a knock down price!!

This would be that van on tour. Not very clever colour right enough!!
