I could laugh at the slabbering about him not paying tax when every one of us would play the system and use the best accountants available to avoid paying tax if we were in his position.

Try not to project your faulty morals on others.

Steelers getting killed with the new roughing the passer rules. Think its to much myself.  When Fitzpatrick hangs in to the last seconds to throw how does a defender about to tackle at full speed do anything but land on him?

Give me a safer sport rather than one that destroys payers’ mindsnas well as their bodies. There’s going to be teething problems along that road so strap in if this is getting on your nerves as the NFL is only gong to become more cautious.

You should take a big redner for comparing them as role models, embarrassing statement -  even for a fanboy.

Neither are role models. Fűcking athletes shouldn’t be role models for anyone with a bit of cop on anyways.

Mcgregor is just awful, his achievements are now becoming lost in the woeful behaviour.  What sort of role model is he to anybody?? AJ should be (& is) applauded for turning his life around from being a troublesome youth involved in drugs to what he has become, posters are severely reaching trying to use that to besmirch him.

How dare I point out that Joshua’s criminal record is worse than McGregor’s! It’s terrible when reality butts into your opinions, isn’t it?

How much of it will Mayo put towards debt repayments?

Given it has to be split equally between the clubs, none.

You would I think Trubisky has a lot more upside that Keenum, Goff shaping up to be very good & he seems to be in a good situation with the weapons and HC he has. I wouldn’t be writing Trubisky off just yet.

Upside is what the Bears kept believing in with Cutler. I’d take the competent production of Keenum over what I’ve seen over the last year with Trubisky. Goff had turned the corner by this stage after a bad start himself.

Shoulda drafted Mahomes or Watson and saved their picks. A reach for a project is never a good idea, let alone #2 overall for what looks at best to be the third best QB in that draft.

I see JP believes in financial parity. If only he could convince the lads in Dublin.

Joshua sold a bit of weed when he was younger.  His behaviour since has been brilliant, both inside and outside the ring.  He is the perfect role model.  Doesn't get involved in any of the trash talk, just gets the job done.  I'm a McGregor fan but you can hardly equate Joshua and McGregor, Joshua is on a different level.

Cool that what I linked makes him the perfect role model in your eyes. That’s more telling about you than you know.

Goff, Good Foles and Keenum are far better than Trubisky. Of that list, only really Bortles is comparable in his dedication to mediocrity.

Im sure if you dredged through 40 years of disciplinary incidents from any county you could put together a  decent rap sheet.

Is "attempt a whatabout to distract from the point" the first rule in the Tyrone propaganda ministry's PR handbook or something?

If Fury gets beaten by Wilder his box office  is minimal,  if he wins he'll be there in April. I'm guessing they were pushing Fury's  buttons by ignoring him - quite successfully by looking at Twitter (he blocked AJ, who is taking great delight).

White looked pissed off about something on Sky's coverage afterwards but I missed the jist of it.

Whyte is a root who was lucky to hear the bell in his last fight. Nobody wants to see him fight Joshua; he got knocked out badly last time. I hear him saying he can get into AJs head, but thats balls. The only card he had was the amateur win which has been well and truly forgotten about.

I have always liked Fury but AJ has got the better off him in their latest battle. Tyson has to be able to take it considering he gives it so much. He slabbers away about hating AJ and how he will never give him the chance to fight him, yet AJ has conducted himself exemplary as usual and winded him up.

Joshua is trapped in the stone age too, it’s just he’s usually better at hiding it than eejits like Fury or Wilder.

Joshua is a good guy to be honest. That's about as bad as you will find on him and its not even bad really.

Yeah just don't think about the drug dealing either and he is a good guy.

Ah I wouldn’t be that sore on him regarding that he was a young fella living in inner city London.

He’s turned his life around and so far seems to be a very decent role model as well as being quite grounded.

McGregor could do with taking a leaf out of Joshua’s book!

Uh, there’s a hell of a lot of people in inner cities that don’t deal drugs. Weird way to try to wash that one away. Joshua is good at what he does; he’s also got a good PR team. He’s not a great person no more than McGregor is, I certainly wouldn’t be trying to put him on a pedestal above McGregor like you appear to be trying to.

People need to be looking somewhere else for role models.

That’s the type of logic I’d expect from you. You are as bad as sy.

The sheer misplaced arrogance of this post is astounding.

From an outsider's view ...…
At this juncture in Mayo football and to get all their best players committed is James Horan not the best bet?

But is a win now mentality the right one in a Mayo team that realistically hasn’t any hope of winning now? Horan showed a mistrust of youth last time..

Is Jinxy Ewan MacKenna?

Mostly agree but the derisive reference to ‘crusades’ does an incredible injustice to the countless cases in recent years where such efforts were full justified, situations where society would have swept things under the rug as always had it been in the past.

I’d also argue the Cora/Tierney group have been met with a very, very muted response both in the LGFA and in the media in general, published or social. It flies in the face of the idea he puts out there of an overreaction.

Maybe I'm being cynical but the only pieces I've read that were in support of the girls were written by Jaqui Hurley on rte website, Sinead Kissane in the independent and Mary Hanningan in today's Irish Times.
Isn't it convenient that they then were apparently the only journos in attendance at their press conference the other night?

Jaqui Hurley’s report was essentially a by-the-blows account of what was said at that press conference so I’d caution that it may be posters own biases showing on this one rather than her’s. In general she’s an excellent host and reporter, by the way.

And by the same token Kissane’s writing has rarely been alarmist either, usually making more sensible points than most columnists.

Just because the Carnacon axis tried to stack the deck by only inviting those two journalists it shouldn’t reflect negatively on them. They were just covering a story.
