no its more like a cultural phenomena, having no national sovereignty of our own yet, we are subject to the English media telling us from 1966 how England are the greatest team in the world, thus, it is a simple reaction against this delusional stance. Why we should we be viewed as the same is absurd, we are culturally, linguistically and ethnically different from our cousins south of the border, the sooner people realise this the better. Its like saying all Scandinavians are Swedish, or Indians and Pakistanis are the same, there is no difference between Canadians and Americans. We do not buy the British argument, it was forced upon us by the union of the crowns, a union which the majority of Scotland rejected! Therefore we are at perfect liberty to wallow in England's demise! In fact it brings us great joy, a little like watching a cartoon when haphazard befalls the characters and we like to laugh. It must be noted that this has no reflection on persons of the noble realm, just the media and the football team! Jimmy Hill and Alan Hansen that retarded turncoat that he is!
