Is your sports team and its fans heavily linked with certain political views? Do you hold those views?
Just watched a video on the 5 most political footaball clubs. Unsurprisingly my club Celtic was among them and I hold a lot of the same views.

No clue. I don't follow sports.

if my team was strongly linked to views which I oppose I would probably stop following the team (I am not certain of that because it hasn't happened)

Part of the reason why I stopped watching Denver Broncos games was because they held fundraisers for dubya at their headquarters. The entertainment industry should stay out of politics.

good and brainwashed with supposed allegiance.

[@134288,cycleman] Just what happens through mass gatherings of mainly working class people. Almost inevitable.

But you guys still have a leftover from all that Catholic/Protestant divide thing going on up there.
I would have thought that would have died out by now, but maybe it's still prominent.

They have/had similar things in Italy and Spain between certain clubs.
Look at Barcelona and the whole 'Catalonia independence' thing !

[@448576,Picklebobble2] It has decreased somewhat but definitely still exists. Celtic still very Irish nationalist and anti-union. Rangers still very much for the union and monarchy. Celtic fans a bit more political with all the left wing and Palestine stuff. Seems Rangers fans now bring Israel flags just bc Celtic fans are pro-Palestine.

Politics still very tied to football in Spain, Italy, Russia and Germany.
