It was a sketch from "Chewin' the Fat", an excellent Scottish comedy show from years back.
A young activist would go around carrying out minor acts of rebellion in support of what he saw as the underdog... so he'd smash up a scarecrow for example, while shouting out "'mon the crows!" (Come on, the crows!)

I thought we had blown it when we conceded that late goal, which would have been a typically Scottish thing to do. Delighted that we'll be there, it would have been hard to take as a hosting nation if we weren't. Tricky group to get out of mind!

Chuffed for Scotland a football loving nation back in the fold, as for Scotland fans hating England as an Englishman living and working in Scotland it's a load of bollocks
I did think of mentioning that but it's like pushing water uphill sometimes so thanks for highlighting that little nugget. :okay:

I'm chuffed for them too. But after a year of living in Dundee i'd say the scots love to hate the english. It's fair enough.

Edit: In a sporting context, mostly.

The Premier League has decided to scrap pay per view with all matches aired over different channels. I cannot help but think this is a face saving exercise, after fans boycotted paying to watch games with no fans and no atmosphere. Many just streamed their games over the internet. The Prem and clubs have tried to milk fans for their money whilst offering inferior entertainment. Greed will eventually kill the game if we are not careful.

I remember being in an ASDA in Edinburgh in 2000 and they had a football-related competition for that years' European Championships where the winner won ALL 15 shirts hoisted aloft above the shoppers' heads. Fifteen shirts in a sixteen team tournament. Guess which one was missing?
