Quote from: Truthsayer on April 02, 2024, 10:53:35 PMPenalties are a scourge copied from soccer. No big deal on Sunday for league final but to decide a championship game on penalties is appalling.. totally demeaned last years Ulster final.
LOL no it didn't

and why is that then?
UCF played Penn state in a college football game in croker in 2014 too

Quote from: Armagh18 on March 19, 2024, 11:05:36 PMOne of the Liverpool goals very easily could have been ruled out for foul on Bruno.
the complete non foul?
Disgraceful from Liverpool. Gakpo especially
Quote from: seafoid on March 12, 2024, 03:40:30 PMSomeone said upthread that the buses past Casement only go every 15 minutes. Does Belfast not have different arrangements for buses feeding crowds to big matches ?
transport in the west is brutal, used to work on the Stewartstown road, could take half an hour to get there from divis. Buses very irregular although the glider has helped this. Usually gridlock all the time god help it on a match day in casement
Michael Edwards is back and wants to sign another club.... Who could we sign?

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on March 11, 2024, 07:12:13 PMDuring covid there was a definite drop in quality

Has some what improved lately but seems lacking originality at times and reverting to redoing old films or adding a digit on the end of a film (expendables and that car film I've never seen)

We could be missing plenty of decent films if the screenplay hasn't a 'Box Office' look about it and no producer will take a chance with it..

Think Netflix films and Prime are diluting things also
dunno about the drop in quality, bond and top gun were covid movies and both unreal

Quote from: Truthsayer on March 09, 2024, 06:43:45 PMAm no rugby expert but why kick the ball away when you can hold possession for the last minute?.. run the aul clock down 🤷�♂️
I genuinely never understand why this always happens. Surely run another couple of phases to run clock down
