You see didn’t wipe anything. She threw bluster and hyperbole and mud. She won’t have converted anyone that’s not equally as entrenched in emotive, unsubstantiated, terminology.

If you’re looking for people to swing voters, place your enjoyment and confidence in the GPs who actually asked considered questions, such as the conscientious objection question.

RedSweater chick was a dose.

Maria Steen giving a masterclass in swatting away the Yes mob.
A great point from the audience too. If people actually witnessed what happened during an abortion, they wouldn't be voting for it.
Sid and Syferus will never address this. Instead they'll dress it up in cuddly language like 'compassion' and 'healthcare'.

The chick in the red? She wouldn’t be out of place on Fox News, such is her level of shite and absolute balderdash. She actually needs more stricter moderation from the host.

Rough Rough Rough hungover round at Murvagh today. Beautiful day in Donegal but it was a long hungover trek!!

Couple pints in Pettigoe righted the ship after!

I've not researched his ball flight, or his swing path. He seems to be a pretty straight hitter - rarely in trouble like Rory - nor known for slinging it around like Bubba.

I don't argue with ball flight laws however. If he's fading the ball (again starting left of target) he is swinging somewhat (and these guys are pros, their margins are much different than many of us) out to in with a club face open at impact, relative to the swing plane. If he's starting it straight with a slight fade off the straight line - could all be down to clubface on a straight in to in path.

Now, lets remember in many instances we are talking a 1-5 yard ball flight movement over maybe a 280-300 yard carry. I could buy that that small amount could be influenced solely by club face orientation, given that club face at impact is the primary driver in ball direction.

Then you'll disagree wholly with my EDIT above  :D :D

Not sure how you can play a fade with an In to Out swing path. Fade being a shot that starts left of target and moves right.

Ball flight laws dictate 3 shots from an In to Out swing path (clubface relative to target)

Push slice (club face aimed right of swing path at impact). Starts right of target and continues Right
Push (neutral clubface at impact) Starts right of target and stays straight
Push Hook (draw) (clubface aimed left of swing path at impact) Starts right of target and moves left

To hit a fade (not a slice), swing path must be Out to In with an open clubface at impact.

EDIT: Absolutely agree with you however on a Fade being a much more controlled drive. That Patrick Reed used it so effectively at ANC given that he is a huge slinger of the ball the other way is serious testament to it - and it's a much easier shot for many to execute than the Holy Grail draw.

Open far superior to Masters, Masters has smallest field.

Masters 200% the “best” major. Just ask the guys who’ve never won it.

Really would like to see Liverpool win this whole thing - but there are huge question marks under pressure with the game in the balance.

Salah kept quiet enough tonight, but plenty of outlet in Mane and Firmino. Pretty Sure Liverpool will score - be interesting to see what happens at the other end.

Is Can gone?

Not the least accurate thing he could have been called. Certainly made some foolish decisions - but he did work hard to create the goal in the second half yesterday.

The Greek lad and Maitlin Niles were solid yesterday. Xhaka though...

Xhaka was actually good though. I'd take Souness with a pinch of salt. He said Arsenal have not got close to Utd in recent years even though this will be the first time in a while Utd finish above Arsenal.

He recovered well, that's ok - but to wear the captains armband and give the ball away like he did in the first half and his slide for the goal - that was worse than something you'd see in Sunday league.

He had a solid second half - but the jury is still very much out on him.

Not sure what Souness has to do with my comment - I was watching on NBCSN.

Big ask. Got a curry and some beer here for good luck. That might be all that gets enjoyed.
