guys,
asked at O neills but they couldn't confirm
are Armagh getting a new jersey next year?
I wouldnít think it - handy tip - Check OíNeillís website. If the jersey is on sale at full price then no. If itís reduced watch this space

still at full price. We must be having that for the third year
Dunno, could be full price for the Christmas Gouge and then on sale 26th December.

The Dublin jersey is reduced from 45 to 30

The usual overreactions. Few would disagree that City are stronger at the moment, but they hardly battered United.
Two set piece goals decided it.
Without Pogba United are badly hamstrung in transitioning to attack. When he isn't playing teams like City can push everyone 5 or 10 yards up the field and know they aren't going to get picked off. Then you see how limited the likes of Herrara are when something creative is needed.

I'd say if there was to be a new jersey, they'd want it out before Christmasl

What would have happened if Hillary won ?

Would people be calling for Bill to be removed from the White House?

I see Trump's accusers have come out again... Where have they been for the last year??

They had to wait first for the Democrats to regain the high moral ground as it pertains to the issue of sexual assault. They had lost it for 20/30 years with their unwavering loyalty to Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy

They just got it back last week when they forced Al Franken to resign

Nothing stopping the GOP following suit amidst what is looking like a major cultural turning point. This should not be a partisan issue. If the Dems seize the high ground, it will only because the GOP refuse to join them there.

Hahaha....forcing Franken out when his replacement gets to be handpicked by the Democratic governor required a lot of courage on their end. I knew something was up last week. 

Looks like maybe the Russian angle isn't working for them

Time for plan b

So... what... the GOP SHOULDN'T bother trying to get with the times and take a stand against sexual assault and harrassment? Its all political, so it doesn't matter?? They shouldn't even bother trying to neutralize it, even if only for political reasons? I'm confused.

And Franken was seated until 2020. Now the Dems have yet another seat to defend next year (and then again in 2020), one which Franken took months of delay to win originally. You think they're happily just going to turn over a stone to find a candidate as popular and capable as Franken? I'd say the GOP are planning to give MN a serious go, especially having done very well in WI in recent times. Doesn't mean they'll win, but it will at the very least take resources away from some of the seats Dems are defending in red states.

As for Moore, there was nothing stopping the GOP getting together and doing a serious write-in campaign. Some of them even wavered and encouraged this. But once Trump got involved, it was Moore all the way, with a few noble exceptions like the senior Senator from Alabama. So spare us the whinging about motives, especially given the climate under which this is taking place.

But rather than your whining about playing politics and plan B's, why don't YOU tell us what SHOULD be happening here?

Who's whining?

I am quite enjoying seeing the liberals lose their mind at the prospect of Roy Moore in the Senate. 

All the time they cried wolf about Republicans over the past few years is blowing up spectacularly in their faces.

 Mitt Romney was a woman hater of the highest order because he had folders full of resumes and allowed his female employers flexible schedules if they wanted to leave early to have dinner with their families

And as for that John Kasich, "housewives" came out of their kitchens to help him get elected, so fvck him too

At the end of the day the Republican Party is fvcked.....maybe Trumps only (and parting gift) will be 2 or 3 Supreme Court Justices. He needs Roy Moore to accomplish that goal

You're questioning the motives of the Democrats on this issue, ignoring the vast cultural groundswell under which this is all taking place. If the Dems kept Franken and Conyers on, you'd be screaming hypocrisy. After them giving them the boot, you're basically doing the same. Fine.

But you're refusing to address my point that if this is all purely political or opportunistic (or even partially), then what is stopping the GOP doing the same? You're refusing to tell us what the GOP, whom you generally support, SHOULD be doing.

You are the one who should be losing your mind over Moore. The man is a disgrace to conservatism. Don't give too much of a f**k about Moore per se myself (its a very safe GOP seat), except that it depresses me a little to see how far off the deep end the GOP is going and has been going for years. Not that I've got common cause with them on most issues, but they have a lot of power over me and my family and the country and environment in which I live. Where is the bottom?

63000000 people voted for Trump in spite of the Access Hollywood tape and in spite of other known allegations.  As far as I'm concerned that has already been litigated in the court of public opinion.  unless some new bombshell emerges it's a done deal as far as Im concerned.

As it pertains to Moore, they should have figured out a way to throw him off the ballot. He's extremely unpopular in Alabama. If he gets elected they should throw him out

On Trump specifically, nothing is going to come of this, at least until the next campaign, even if new allegations come out. He is lucky that all this the Weinstein-instigated backlash didn't happen last year, although in fairness, the allegations against him and his defiant hypocrisy probably laid at least some of the groundwork for Weinstein et al.'s downfall. This reckoning would have happened eventually no matter what, but Trump may have sped it up, even if it was Weinstein that opened the floodgates.

I suppose their performance has dropped in the last couple of years, since they have had to lay off the drugs due to all the attentive scrutiny from the noble sportsmanly Brits.

Foles is a pretty good back-up. Plenty of experience and had a very good season with the Eagles a few years ago. I think the problem for the Eagles is that the NFC is so competitive compared with the AFC. Apart from the Pats it feels like there is no one in the AFC as good as the top 4-5 teams in the NFC.

NFC playoffs are going to be fun.
