Thank you! Please vote in the poll if you have not.
I just thought with The Rainbow Guard, Renly's green armour and various other colourful references was just Martin's way of making the story more visually colorful.
When I saw the Crying Game for the first time I had just thought "She's got big hands" when the main charachter was getting his hair done...a few other things in the movie made me wonder too, like the bar etc. A year or so later watching it on cable I thought "How could I have not seen it?"
I had planned on re-reading the books when time so will see then for the subtle references.
