In the summer of a very long time ago, I worked in Wildwood NJ on the boardwalk for two months. During that time I wore a teeshirt with a confederate flag on it. Never had a problem with it.

Another point is why are people only now making such an issue of it?

Same reason it's increasingly unacceptable to use racist epithets.

People have always made issues of this though

Nonsense.

So what is the worst that can happen when Cork fans fly the confederate flag?

1) Gaelic supporters rush out and sign up to white supremacy
2) White supremacists is the southern states of USA read it an an endorsement and proceed with gay abandon

In my opinion (which I rate very highly) both the above scenarios are highly unlikely. Unless of course you're someone who takes offence at anything remotely related to a march of racist thugs.

The meaning of this flag has not changed since 1865. The idea that it is more unacceptable today than last year is nonsense.

Correct. Is EamonMacha afraid that if he sees the rebel flag he might turn into a racist?

One of the luckiest wins ever.

1) Hoff should have scored their penalty
2) Liverpool opener was the fault of a Hoff defender who ducked
3) Liverpool second goal a fluke
4) Hoff missed a number of sitters near the end

Painting ceilings. Nothing worse.
I was wrong there is something worse.
Glossing doors and skirting boards is worse.

Wallpapering a ceiling isn't exactly a barrel of laughs either.

Cork fans have been flying the Confederate flag since I first started watching Gaelic on television. Anyone who thinks Cork fans were endorsing white supremacy need to have a serious look at themselves. Plus, they can shove their 'offence' up their arse.

You'd be okay with them flying a Nazi flag then? It's red and white isn't it?

What has the Nazis got to do with the Rebel county?

Please desist from letting white supremacists claim something which they do not own. You are as bad as the unionists who see every tricolour as a terrorist symbol.

The rebel flag at the hurling semi appears to have upset some idiots. I am sure they will be calling for the Druids Glen to be renamed too.

Nice touch by Spieth and Ricki staying being. Spieth has gone slightly up in my estimation.

Worse than Wexford,Dublin and all the Nordie Counties.. I don't think so.

There's a helluva difference in the accent between south Armagh and north Armagh. Same thing with Down.

But yeah, Queens County clearly don't use the Queens English.
