I'll repeat, nobody is right and nobody is wrong in the whether to support Team GB in the Davis Cup or Olympics. The simple fact is GB is a country and the country of our passports. Like it or lump it.............personally I hate it but acknowledge that it exists and means I choose to support Scots in Davis Cup and Olympics even though they are competing under a GB banner. That's due to Politics.
Others choose to support the other team. Fine. Your choice. Not my choice but as long as you're comfortable with it.
Some Scottish Celtic fans choose to ignore the fact they are from Scotland and support Ireland for some sort of religious or distant family connection or for something to do with their club team being started by Irish or something. Whatever, freaks of nature to support another country before your own and I wonder if those supporting Australia at the weekend might want to consider the comparison there.
Another complication in my mixed up mind is that I don't think I'd support Team GB with any real conviction if it were all English players in the team. Similarly I don't know if I'd have gone to the Final if it was in Manchester or Birmingham as it would have been more English and British than the weekend just passed. Analyse that all day if you want, I just don't think I'd have bothered.
At the weekend I clapped and sang and stamped my feet to Scotland the Brave and Loch Lomond. I ignored GSTQ (as did almost everyone, including the masses of English). I chose to wear 100% Scotland gear as did many others. Some wore 100% Union Jacks and some wore half and half. All fine since we live in Scotland which is unfortunately part of GB. Like it or lump it.
The debate is a long standing one in many situations and will keep going until we are independent. Nobody is right and nobody is wrong. Make no mistake though, nobody is more Scottish or patriotic than me even though I stood beside English and Welsh and Northern Irish and cheered two Scots win a tennis match.
