GAA Discussion / Re: Provincial Championship Draws 2018 tonight
« on: October 21, 2017, 12:43:35 AM »
I'm content enough with Monaghan getting Tyrone. Get those rascals out of the way as early as possible and hope they don't return  through the back door with 2 dozen chips on each shoulder looking to stab you in the back.
Probably it will be a Tyrone team attempting a "transition",  a journey into discovering a new ways of playing football,  or what ever buzz word is used  by some coach Mickey brought in to actify the transition phase.
Beating them in Tyrone would be an added strawberry on the dessert.

I'm missing big Sean already.

I see Celtic pocketed a whopping £28.5m prize money from last season CL pot.
The reason why it's so much, despite only having 3 draws and finishing bottom, is that Celtic are now lumped in with the EPL teams in the market pool and they got 10% of that UK pool.
I take from that, the more progress EPL teams make in this season's CL, the more Celtic will get in prize money.

JoG2,

Yes, I understand that. But my view on that was that not only are the conditions perilous, but the high winds make it perilous for others who might have to come and rescue you. So it's not just about you doing something dangerous, it's about you potentially getting someone else do do something dangerous to help you. I think it shows a bit of disregard for others.

In the normal course of events, Extreme Sports are not banned, so there is an acceptance that some lunatics (:) ) might have to be rescued, but at least the conditions for the rescue itself are not necessarily as dangerous as last Monday.

I suppose I'm trying to see this through the extreme folks eyes. They'd have read the charts and seen that the east coast was fairly hairy, but nothing worse than many other days on the coast up until late afternoon when the storm kicks in a bit more. You'd be fairly certain no-one would have ventured in down in West Cork at dawn.
Those 2 wind surfers didn't need rescuing, it was a false alarm. They were already on shore before the rescue team got there.
Meanwhile 3 men on a 10m yacht had to be rescued by the Rosslare lifeboat with 10 volunteers aboard who had to bear the brunt of force 9 and a 6m swell to get to them.
Planes were being allowed to attempt landings at Dublin Airport in wind speeds way above the red line danger mark, endangering the lives of all aboard.
Don't people think that just a little bit odd?

Much is being made out of a few individuals indulging in extreme sports, taking advantage of the waves and wind, however ill advised.
Keeping Dublin Airport open and allowing planes to attempt landings was certifiably reckless.

Celtic got the runaround but managed to create a few chances when Bayern went down a gear.
A goal would have been a just dessert.

Denmark no where near the ability of the belgiums
The original reference was to the strength of the Belgian team in that 1997 WC play off.

These play offs are naturally stiffer than the Euro 2016 play offs which were contested by 3rd place teams, Our opponents B&H were the top seeds then.
 I think we did well to get Denmark, they'll be favourites but not by much and naturally O'Neill will be out to reduce the technical ability deficit. O'Neill's record against the odds in the crunch games, is very good, however this current team is about the weakest play-off team since 1997.

No, the question was clearly "How is that people know what Cooper's intentions were with his comments on The LLS?" I've just checked and that's what I type

We're talking about a GAA lad making cash. Nothing about this is important. But take your time. Maybe don't post for a while so it gets your complete attention. We don't want your accuracy record to be tarnished.
I don't know how people know, it's their knowing.

Possibly read the text of what Cooper said and you might figure it out for yourself, it might assist the process if you removed the poker from your backside.
Hold on. You said "another sucker for the Cooper story" and "there are plenty that didn't get it on here" yet you say that I have a poker up my arse?

You can see where I'm coming from?
Hold on!!!
Jeésus Joe, you had me fooled for a while there, masquerading as a pedantic moron.

from the point of view of generating further debate Brollys article serves a purpose.

didnt find it funny as healy rae is lampooned and has nothing to do with the debate.

Cooper told a lie from what i can gather about brolly apologising and I suppose with that comes the risk of considerable derision and character assasination
Another sucker for the lie story  ;D
Cooper knocked Joe senseless with that spoof on the LLS, and by the looks of it there are plenty here who didn't get it either.
Joe doesn't have the cop to know when he has been ribbed mercilessly.
I didn't know Cooper had it in him, he is the baby faced assassin.
How is that people know what Cooper's intentions were with his comments on The LLS?
The question is, how is it that you don't get it?

You didn't think he had it in him yet you're certain he now has?
Hmm such an important question. I'll have to ponder about certainties based upon appreciation of a quality spoof.
This will take time.

Looks like payback time for Gooch's wee Late Late Show fib  :o

That’s assuming Gooch gives a f@@@ what Brolly thinks,says or writes!

obviously he does or wouldnt have went on about it on the LLS

Gooch did not go on about it. He was asked about it and fobbed it off with a lie!

so he shouldn't have told a lie. speaks volumes for him...
A lie?
Was it not blatantly obvious that Cooper was exacting revenge when sarcastically taking the píss out of Brolly and that absurd apology claim?
Cooper was winding up Joe  and Joe fell for it hook, line and sinker. Much mirth down Kerry way I guess.

"On a serious note, Joe actually sent me a text this week to say ‘Sorry about all the fuss. I wish there wasn’t a reaction that there was. It’s gone overboard. And I apologise’.
“So he’s obviously changed his tune and now fully respects that I am entitled to have a testimonial night if I want."

 ;D

Afaiu, the OTB crew do not have an issue with the IT and are opposed to such a fanatic position but comply all the same.

I mean, in this day and age of emotional maturity, could you imagine a GAA county board, front room staff and players boycotting RTE because they were unhappy with their coverage.  Never! ::)

General discussion / Re: Catalan Independence Movement
« on: October 13, 2017, 04:42:28 PM »
the Catalan referendum was a bit like Brexit, winning the referendum was the easy bit.

Exactly that's the crux of it

The problem with the Catalan referendum was that it was not a free and fair referendum. There was serious tampering with the election mechanism, whether by word (Spanish government) or by deed, the obstruction by the police and other agencies.
The mandate from the ballots cast, falls short and is not enough to empower a decl of independence.
