Nice kit, but the stars...?

Stars are always a nice touch in my opinion.

Maybe, but Tyrone with three, ourselves sticking two on, Derry one... is it not all a little ďsmall timeĒ when you have Kerry, Dublin and even the likes of Cork, Meath and Galway out there with nothing on their jersey?

Tyrone will need a 4th star by next September.

Does that mean weíll have to buy an updated jersey with the 4th start on it? Itís genius really!

McAleer & Rushe are out. New sponsor to be confirmed tomorrow.

New sponsor offering much more money.

Not surprised mcaleer and rushe have pulled out. Heard they were becoming exasperated at the rte ban.

I suspect you donít have a clue what youíre talking about Lenny.

I'd say this whole affair is pretty standard Joe Brolly. Pick a target, publicly criticise, humiliate, run down or embarrass said target. Forcefully suggest he is doing it for the good of the game, grass roots, community, or some other cause. Leave a load of shit in his wake for others to deal with. Move on to a new target. Repeat. All to the benefit of only one agenda - Joe's own need for notoriety, fame, attention or whatever psychological need that he needs fulfilled.

How did Feargal McCrory do?

Wondering myself. Been searching online and itís as if it didnít happen

Fight was named a floater so he ended up being last on. He's just won.

For want of a better place to post this, I thought this was a good article from Enda McGinley.

Yep and as pointed out previously, there are undoubtedly  hundreds of GAA loving Irish barristers who could present articulate and entertaining insights into our games. But as heís the one who happened to play the (amateur) sport at the highest level, heís the one who gets paid a hefty sum of money for doing so.

Iím still trying to work out how many degrees of separation from the game are necessary before he agrees and it is okay to profit from the game.

I'm not Brolly's biggest fan and disagree with many of his points of view but I've seen it noted in various places previously that he donates his Sunday Game & newspaper fees to charity.

If it were true Brolly would make sure it was well known!

It is widely known that this is the case and that he never charges for appearances at Club's either I'm prettu sure it was mentioned on the sportsjoe.ie podcast he was on.

He's a barrister sure what difference would 500 quid a few weeks of the year make to him for his RTE gig or for writing his column? I'm pretty sure he's in it for the notoriety more so than the money.

Yeah, you're probably right but he is happy to part-take in industries which use an amateur organisation to earn hefty sums of money. Does he have a problem with Gooch sitting beside him in the RTE studio taking money for his analysis? Has he included a comment about that in his withering article? What about Pat and Colm? Are the RTE GAA analysts modern day Robin Hoods, taking from the rich TV companies and passing it back down the chain to the poor GAA grass roots? I'd be fairly sure that they aren't. For me his argument is flawed and is another (in a long, long, long) line of examples of Joe aiming for the biggest fish to maximise his own exposure.

Joshua v Pulev fight is off, apparently due to Pulev hurting his shoulder in training.

Am I the only person who doesn't know who the multiple accounts are? I feel like I'm missing out now

Me too  ;D

There are quite obviously a number of accounts set up to cause division and controversy (look at the amount of stupid Mayo threads in the run up to the AI Final) that are almost definitely other posters on the board operating a second/third account. However, I too lack the detective skills needed to be able to identify who the original account is.

I think I remember BCB or one of the other Armagh posters highlighting a post from an account with a large number of posts that was at the time commonly accused of being a WUM. He stated that a word used by the WUM had only been used once before on this forum (must have searched for it), and it was said by another account with an even larger number of posts.

Oh ffs, seriously? Firstly, who can be arsed registering multiple accounts? Secondly, who gives enough of a shit to cross reference words used by multiple accounts to catch them out? Iíve said it before, some people take their lives on here way too seriously.  Is this forum not just for mild amusement to pass a bit of time? Itís not something to get deeply upset about. Those with serious issues with this board should ask Syferus for the link to his forum which by all accounts (his own acount) is a perfectly moderated utopia. Iím sure life over there is everything you wish it to be.

Impressive stuff by Eubank Jr tonight. I know nothing of the guy he beat but he was highly enough rated. I must admit, Eubank is becoming one of the boxers I most look forward to watching.

The key is in the name. GAA board. Some posters on here seem to have little or no interest in anything GAA and are only here to talk shite about soccer/politics/religion. They have no place here IMO.

Thereís a non GAA section.

Some people take their life on here way too seriously. I enjoy the board as much as the next man but generally I wouldnít get too upset about someone I donít know, and am never likely to meet, saying something I donít like. I find when I log off I donít give the Board too much thought. So extra moderation of threads wouldnít be something I would be too bothered about.
