I am quite enjoying seeing the liberals lose their mind at the prospect of Roy Moore in the Senate. 

How shitty is your life?

In fairness we lost 4 starting forwards for the Dublin game last year. King, Maher, Cha and Willie Dunphy. A small county can't compete with players of that calibre missing.

How did Anton Tohill  not play Derry minor but make the Aussie rules cut ??

He isn't a terribly gifted footballer. Probably more suited to Aussie Rules I'd imagine.
silly comment about a player you obviously haven't a clue about. Having seen him regularly this year I also don't know how he didn't make the derry minor panel because he should have. A very honest and driven lad who has made a massive improvement in the last 2/3 years

Have seen him play a right bit. Honest and driven, yes. Athletic, Yes. Great fielder, yes. A natural footballer, I'm not so sure.

I would say he's similar to Niall McKeever who went to Aussie rules. Not a great footballer by any stretch of the imagination but tall, athletic and great in the air.

In a team where the term " Team" means every thing then I'm quite sure there is ample room for Anton to play an important part.  The Dublin squad would have a few of those fellows ....

Was that man black; not in the vicinty of Donegal when that happened?

All the evidence points to a family member who was being protected by FF.
Will we all go into the parlour Mr. poirot and you can produce this "evidence ' which wouldn't stand up a minute in court?
It doesn't even meet the" No smoke without fire" standard of evidence

Last person to be seen with the girl in question.
Statements by investigating gardai that believe he did it and disclosure of how higher powers intervened to stop questioning the suspect.
A family member's (her twin sister) claims that the girl was being sexually abused by the suspected family member

But keep on trying to cover up Fianna Fail involvement in a cover up of the murder of a young child.

Investigating Gardai believe he did it.
Wow. That's very persuasive evidence.
Call Mr. Pierrepont immediately and see is he available for an early lynching

Sweep, sweep. Strange how you are all for political interference in murder cases of young girls.

Some of us prefer evidence rather than bar stool gossip

Evidence? Like statements from Gardai who worked on the case and claim there was political involvement?
It's not evidence until it is sworn in court.

It can't be sworn in court when political interference has stopped the main suspect in ever being formally questioned in relation to the girls disappearance. Odd that you find this perfectly OK.

When you have that one solved have a look at the jfk assassination.
SF can't try to smear their opponents about that though.

Odd that you have no condemnation for FF here. Maybe you're OK with political interference keeping a paedophile and murderer on the streets?

The Chiefs look like a busted flush to me. There defense has been brutal all year, even when they were winning early, and after their hot start their offense has been found out a bit. I wouldn't fancy their chances against any of the AFC playoff contenders at this stage.

I think the Jags have a chance, even with Bortles under centre, if only because the AFC is so mediocre outside of the Pats.

Homefield advantage is going to be quite important in the NFC.

Pearses are wasting money getting Pat Flanagan. They are in a place where a big name manager might just get them over the line but Flanagan is neither that nor the man to beat Brigids.

Cake, Pearses’ best manager of recent years, will be a selector under Frankie Dolan for Brigids this coming season too.

Jordan has done damn all and doesn't rock the boat, likes getting wheeled out here and there.

None perfect but I would give Harvey a shot. I don't believe him and harte are that great tbh

If he isn't that great why does he deserve a shot?

is this a serious question ??
