General discussion / Re: Poppy Watch

You would expect a lot more Irish footballers to object to wearing a poppy on the same basis as McClean. Also saw Nemanja Matic wasn't wearing one on Saturday i think but very little being made of that?

Finally another player has an issue with it. Interested to see how this one plays out

Been very quiet this though hasn't it. Which is strange

Perhaps if McClean didn't release an annual statement to court publicity, then the outcry may not be as loud.

Absolutely ludicrous. You can't have posted that in seriousness?

Only if you're slow.

Why was the GAA set up?

 ;D Wtf are you on about now?

There was all sorts of rumours going round after the bomb, Begley had went in and shouted bomb and they grabbed him and the bomb went off, well who'd know that? As anyone that was there died, it was a faulty bomb, or the RA wanted a no warning bomb and no chance for anyone to get out.. Not one UFF member was hurt, not even close, they were not even in the building!

The same goes for every bomb planted here

Could you explain what 'the same goes for every bomb here' means in the context of the preceding paragraph?

You seem to have taken this personally - to reassure you, this isn't anything to do with you, or who you know, or how great you are, its about your post. My asking if you read it before posting seems a reasonable question in helping me try to make some sense of it. (And just on the shankill bomb, you should probably let Sean Kelly, for one, know that he didn't survive)

Begley's family holding a 25th Memorial. Why do the Shinners insist in attending these events, time to let them go.

No they are not, the Begley family said they have nothing to do with it, won't be going to it, but will be attending mass instead to pray for their son and the victims
Shinners quoted by Naomi Long on twitter as saying they are and that they will attend. either way my comment re SF and memorials still stands.

I'm sure they'd like to avoid these events and the scrutiny, but denying their roots and alienating republican activists would be disastrous in many ways, not least of which would be leaving a rather large hole for dissidents to exploit.

I think Johnson has well and truly been seen through now by all. A beaten docket in terms of whats important to him, which is nothing other than his own personal success

Never overestimate the English electorate, delicately poised as ever and this dog could have its day, dangerous b**tard all round, complete egomaniac nut job war criminal in waiting.

The electorate don't choose the leader of the tories

Nolan didn't give a f**k about any of the victims.

UFF leadership due to have meeting upstairs. Plan was to clear the shop at gunpoint, arm device, and get out themselves, but not enough time for UFF to get out. Certainly high risk.

The backstop is a position of last resort, to protect an open border on the island of Ireland in the event that the UK leaves the EU without securing an all-encompassing deal.

Belnaleck were junior last year (won through to Ulster final), so they've done very well to come straight up and win intermediate. A coming team, but I think a bit soon to expect much of them in Ulster yet.

I can't believe that the farming community aren't giving the DUP hell around their stance.

Northern Irish agri / dairy is sold on the basis of us maintaining EC standards.  After next March how do the third countries update their required standards to say that UK standards are acceptable?  Will they need to be tested / audited? And if so, how long will that take?
What happens before those standards are changed?

In terms of other sectors effected:

In the material handling sector (a sector where NI, and specifically Tyrone lead the world) the equipment tends to confirm with the EC Machinery Directive, and is CE marked accordingly.  The body that is attesting that the equipment applies to the CE standard needs to be based in the EU.  This will really complicate things for the manufacturing sector.

The aerospace industry is very tightly regulated and is governed by the European Aviation and Safety Agency (EASA).  Again will UK manufacturers be able to supply parts to be used in planes as they will be outside of EASA?

Dairy farmers nearly all to a man voted leave. Red tape, being told what to do and when to do it by Brussels being the main reasons. And you know what? They are dead right. Regardless of what happens the UK government will support them. So for the farming sector there is probably no downside.
Personally I'd love to see the bundle of hungry c***ts being put on the side of the road, but that's unlikely.

Utter bullshit. Incredibly inaccurate.

I don't understand what you think the relevance of it happening directly after he caught a mark is. That doesn't change in the slightest whether it was deliberate or accidental. The ref was there, he deemed it accidental.

If they want to appeal, they can (as you say, presuming entitled to under the rules) - releasing a statement would not seem to be the best way to go about that, and indeed, would seem to be deliberately designed to escalate this in the (uninformed) public eye

Watching frampton's documentary last night it was interesting seeing "leave eu" written all over the side of houses in tigers bay and then eu flags on the 11th night bonfire. I wonder what reasons these people have for wanting to leave the eu??

Before their fairly recent about turn, wasn't Sinn Fein pretty anti-Eu, too?

SF very anti EU. The UKIP of Ireland. Consistently campaigned for No votes in all referendums. Didn't register as an official remain party and tellingly didn't campaign for a remain vote. West Belfast a SF stronghold had the lowest turnout in the referendum of all constituencies.

That's just false

No itís not. And the article (from 2015) you linked says they will campaign for yes vote but in reality they didnít bother.

You don't have a clue what you're talking about, so you should stop.

What exactly does prolonging this achieve? Who cares what the man on the street thinks about the incident? At the end of the day those who want it to be deliberate will see that in the video, and those who don't, won't.

Moy have released a statement saying they disagree with their own county boards interpretation of the incident. I don't know on what planet they think that's a good idea. If they really are that interested in having a player retrospectively punished for what appears to be a debatable incident, releasing statements to the media would not seem to be the best way to go about it, and it certainly contravenes part of their self-same statement:

'The club also condemned online abuse that appeared against both sides in the aftermath of the incident and appealed for restraint, and wished Edendork well in the next round of the championship.'

Such a shit show
