It takes a special kind of ego to still stick the Quinn name on your company after its been ran into the mud many times over.

Prenty made sure that all ties involving two of Roscommon, Galway and Mayo were on a Sunday I see..

Do you have a point?

Financial. Obviously.

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.

It'd be a home game for the other team :)  They are masters of impoding alright, but they have a lot of the parts. If Rivers stays hot he's very good. They have a legitimate receiver, and possibly a decent backup cast, They have a good  running back and scat back. They have a good D line. They have a good Tight End. They have a lot of the elements you need. But it's hard to see them going toe to toe with a really good team and winning.

They are now 7-6 after starting 0-4, so that's good form. Their last 3 games are @Chiefs, @Jets and v Raiders. They have it all in front of them. If they win out, they'll be 10-6 and they'll be dangerous. However when they lose to the Chiefs and away to the Jets, the last game will be moot :)

Chiefs could be a darkhorse for the Superbowl. When they are on they are really good and there were signs in the first half on Sunday that they had their mojo back. Then they showed everyone in the second half why they dont.

They'd need to cop on with their play calling. It improved a bit last week but as a Kelce owner in one of my fantasy league it has been frustrating watching the Chiefs. He's far and away their best receiver and has been criminally underutilised in my view.

Most dangerous team I feel in the AFC race is the Jags. They have a mean D and with the Pats loss they could get a bye as well. Plus they have Coughlin there. Interesting times.

You wont win much with Blake Bortles. The AFC is still Pats or Steelers despite some trendy picks getting a mention here.

Id love to see the Chiefs hit their early season form again, they looked like genuine SB contenders in their first half dozen or so games.

Ravens won with Flacco. TB with Brad Johnson. Defense wins Superbowls. Dolphins showed the Pats up last night. Take the middle away from Brady, jam Cooks and they struggle. Plus it was evident how reliant they are on Gronk now. The Steelers are limping along. We've seen the Pats do this lots of times before and for every year that Brady has looked like the man, theres another year where he's looked ordinary. I'll stick with a Jags-Falcons Superbowl

I don't know if you're trolling because Flacco's post-season stats that year were 11 TD - 0 INT and a passer ratting of 117.2. Comparing that to Bortles is mind-boggling.

AFC is pretty awful. This is a poor Patriots team who have Tom Brady and Gronk. I think the Chargers are the best team in the AFC to be honest.

If the Chargers don't implode, they might be very dangerous. Their problem will be because of the 0-4 start, they are bound to have to go on the road to take on New England or Pittsburgh if they get that far. San Diego/Los Angeles in January is a lot different to Foxborough or Pittsburgh.

The Chargers are kings of surrendering fourth quarter leads. Id be surprised if they even come close to a conference title tbh.

And thank feck they wont have home advantage - can you imagine how Mickey Mouse a home AFC championship game would look for the Chargers?

Seems clear to me these negotiations will never get to an end and Tory government will fall.

Tory government will fall, Labour get in at next election, decide that so much as happened, and the UK needs a 'Clear the Air' referendum about leaving the EU or otherwise, Remain will win by a big majority and everyone is left wondering what the last couple of years have been about.

Fan fiction. Corbyn is a Eurosceptic too.

Last time I checked catholic teaching regards homosexuality as sinful,and the Church opposes gay marriage and any amendment to current abortion legislation as it applies in the North
Civil marriage laws are Ceaser's business.
Gay people have sex married or not - so the Church can preach against homosexual sex -as opposed to homosexuality which is a natural situation as some people are that way by nature.
If we're all created by God -then He must be happy to have some people homosexual.
Never came across Jesus saying anything against homosexuality  or homosexuals in the Gospels. 

PS-- Does calling them the "North east 200" mean you've  given up on "northernirishness"?
😆

I think the events of the last fortnight have shaken things up enough that his WUMming would be too obvious to keep going down that track for the time being.

Its always been obvious.

Kingsman 2 was the most aggressively bad film Ive seen in a long time. The fact the first film was a genuinely surprising and fun film only heightened the sense of increduality at how bad the sequel is. After the first scene with shtty CGI and stakeless action I had a feeling I was in for a turkey and nothing that followed changed that perception.

Agreed, a serious let down after first one.

The Disaster Artist is a super movie, bit mad but some genuinely funny parts and because is based on a true story all the better for it. Lags a touch in the middle but it is worth it. James Franco immense in it.

Looking forward to seeing The Disaster Artist, Id recommend the book by Greg Sestro (Mark) that its based on as from what Ive heard it, if anything, simplifies what is an absolutely amazing, dark and comic story.

The audiobook is read by Sestro himself and its excellent, his Tommy Wiseau impression is even better than Francos.

Anyone looking at where Man Utd were before Jose and where they are now and saying hes not the answer is asking a different question to most people.

The old trick with o2 when you contacted them was to say you were going on holidays in a few days and it sped up the process.

Just do it online, contact Vodafone through their Boards.ie forum as the reps that man it are usually more senseable than the ones you get through their website.

2012 Donegal one wasn't o'neills was it? and the 2012 was brutal. the o'neills one after was decent

My mistake, I meant the one after the 2012 jersey.

That Donegal jersey is retro in a bad way. Good jersey design can evoke the past without integrating the elements that severely date it in the process. The 2012 era Donegal jersey was one of the most aesthetically pleasing jerseys ever made by O'Neills.
