Most of those hot and bothered about Bobby Storey's funeral fell strangely silent when thousands of Rangers fans on the Shankill celebrated their club's title win.
There was the odd word of admonishment here, a partial eyebrow raised there, but none were apoplectic with rage the way they were last summer.
Both were outdoor events. Of course, there is a far greater onus on Michelle O'Neill and Sinn Fein ministers, who make the law, to keep it than there is on football fans who haven't drawn up regulations for others to obey.
But I reckon the lack of reaction, or restrained nature of it, from the usual suspects is not that straightforward.
Had it been crowds of Celtic fans partying on the streets with flares and fireworks, there would have been venom in their tongues.
It works the other way round too. Those who justified the Storey funeral breaches, or turned a blind eye and denied they'd even occurred, are keen for the PSNI to investigate events on the Shankill.
In a pandemic, the response to public health rules regulations should not be sectarianised. But then Northern Ireland never plays by normal rules.
DUP Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots appeared to break down Covid infection rates by political affiliation in October. The difference in transmission between nationalist and unionist areas was "around six to one", he said.
DUP MLA Jim Wells took the green and orange theme and ran away with it on Monday's Stephen Nolan Show.
"Up until now the unionist population had the moral high ground on this issue," he said.
"We'd obeyed the rules. We'd cancelled the Twelfth. We'd cancelled all sorts of celebrations - band parades etc. We were obeying the rules.
"Meanwhile, the nationalist population - not just at the Bobby Storey funeral, but at a whole host of other republican events - had totally ignored the regulations."
Mr Wells bemoaned what he viewed as a lack of anger in the Catholic community to the Storey funeral breaches. He and others who see Sinn Fein as Teflon on this one are wrong.
Michelle O'Neill's personal poll ratings plummeted after the funeral with many nationalists angry or dismayed at her party's hypocrisy.
But unionists never learn that less is more. Their overkill on the Storey funeral, combined with comments like those of Messrs Poots and Wells, drive the previously disillusioned back into Sinn Fein arms.
The PSNI's intervention at the Sean Graham bookies massacre memorial last month, and the arrest of victim Mark Sykes, also touched a raw nerve for many across the community.
Northern Ireland is in a much better place on Covid than we've been for a long time. Case numbers, the R rate, and deaths are down. The vaccine programme is progressing at an impressive speed.
Let's hope that the flouting of regulations on the Shankill isn't followed by a spike in cases.
Let's hope that there are no idiots on the other side of the peaceline who use Sunday night's events as an excuse to flout the rules on St Patrick's Day. It's time everybody stopped sectarianising Covid, and united to beat it.
