PS. A Firestick and an iptv subscription works every time at a fraction of the cost... head on over to the Non gAA section and thereís plenty of explanations!

I've used mobdro with Chromecast and it's constantly buffering or stream going offline - would be unusable for day to day TV.  how reliable is IPTV with the firestick? I realise this is the wrong thread for this conversation so if there's a better thread, can you post a link?

Finally I get a correct scoreline prediction.

I see AZ is creeping up the leaderboard with little fanfare.

Ah sure lookit, we're a very young team, and we're just delighted to be competing with the big boys and learning from the experience.

I don't know what possesses people to bring Palestinian flags or any flags outside of their own county to a football match.  Have people nothing better to be at?  There's a time and place. Is it really because folk feel some empathy for others' plight or is it just a chance to stick two fingers up at unionists. Knowing how both sides here think I'd guess it's the latter sadly.

On the drive to Cork for a game a couple of weeks there was a lad outside Charleville selling flags to Cork and Limerick fans. Alongside the usual Cork and Limerick flags with the county crests, he had a plethora of colourful flags for sale including the flag of the Confederacy, Japan, Japan rising sun, Poland (!), Austria, Palestine, Some sort of green skull and crossbones effort, and others. I don't think any were really supposed to convey political meaning, but are just masses of colours, some of which are the county colours. The Palestine one probably stood out the most, because of the black, and the Confederate flag obviously sticks out now too, but they were just part of a much larger colourful explosion.

The skull and crossbones is the flag of UCC sports teams, but I don't think it's usually in green.

No it wasn't that one. I'm aware of that version, it's in red and black normally. This was some sort of green and white generic design thing to flog to Limerick fans I suppose.

Where did I say that? All I said was you were being harsh on poor auld Frank Hogan.

I don't like what happened in Navan at all.

Amazing how confederate flags and bible-thumping evangelical nutcases with huge signs are allowed at GAA matches, but Palestinian flags aren't.

That's harsh. Poor auld John 3:7 is a sound lad.

I saw a few Palestinian flags in the Gaelic Grounds for the Limerick - Tipp Match, and again in Cork for the Cork Limerick game and I don't think anyone was removed, so I'm not sure if a directive came out specifically for the Tyrone Meath game because those flags are more prevalent in some Ulster games.

Iíve heard a lot of stories about John 3:7 being a bit of a thoughtless twat with his antics actually, AZ. I can only imagine being stuck behind him at a match.

Ah yeah but he's harmless.

I used to always park at the Hockey Club nearby is it Bective?  Handy spot, quite cheap and pretty secure.

Pembroke Wanderers?  Opposite the side gate of AIB Bankcentre?

Serious question for the hurley folks -
Now that they've been played what are ye're thoughts or observations  on the 2 Provincial Round Robins and the Joe McDonagh?

I really enjoyed the Munster provincial championship. The relative equality of the teams made for some very exciting and close games. I do think they need to build in an off week so that one team doesn't play 4 weeks in a row like Tipp and Waterford had to. (actually not sure about Waterford, but I think they were off the first week).

Parking out the Nenagh Road is fine. There are numerous little Ä5 car parks in fields, but you'll see a pile of people on both sides of the road all the way up from Thurles Crokes AC (which is a big car park itself) all the way out to the Newport/Borrisileigh junction on the Nenagh road.

Everybody is in favour of the GAA being apolitical, until it is their personal political stance being excluded.

Is the GAA apolitical though? History tells a different tale.

I thought it was not 'Party' Political.

Clare looked good yesterday, but I felt Limerick did a Limerick as well.

If Jake Morris' shot had gone in, instead of hitting the post and Clare scoring a goal from the same rebound, would Clare have been out?

Was trying to figure out why I got nought, glad to see I'm not the only one struggling with it. It's the most unintuitive thing I've come across  ;D

I have an objection gone in with the CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC. The referee's report gave me 6 points, even though I was a measly 3 goals out in my accuracy. To ignore his report and remove 3 points from a cohort of us smacks of disregard for the authority of the match official.

There will be 5/6 in with a chance of winning on Sunday.

I donít mind that the US Open is so different to the others and that they try and stay to par. Itís birdies galore for most of the year so why not have a difficult US Open and a sometimes windy and difficult British Open.

Tomorrow will be interesting as will the cut mark. Theyíre talking about +10 which would be good craic.
I love this type of course / tournament. Okay, a few of the greens are too tough and maybe unfair, but Augusta has a couple like that too. But I love that if you miss the fairway, then you're in trouble. None of this "grip it and rip it" and you don't care where it lands, because you'll have a wedge to the green no matter what.

You have to play clever golf, accurate golf. And when you make a mistake, you'll almost certainly pay the price. Then of course the wind in R1 made it extra tough. R2 is supposed to be less wind, but still some wind, likely to slightly favour the afternoon starters according to Luke Donald.

Rory hardly ever plays well in the wind, so not surprised to see him struggle. Suits Shane though, the one horror show on the green cost him badly, but +5 isnt out of it.

There's a still a risk DJ could run away with it, but I hope not, in which case we should have a really exciting 3 more days.  For the gamblers out there, there really is some great value if you fancy someone who isnt DJ or Rose.

I agree with a lot of that, but in fairness if the greens are OTT it really doesn't matter what you do. Tiger and Shane both 4 putted from about 5 feet on the same green. To me that says there's something off. Phil Mickelson hit 13 out of 14 greens at one stage yesterday, is one of the best short players in the game, and still had a horror show.
