GAA Discussion / Re: Sigerson Cup 2018
« on: Today at 03:41:07 PM »
there seems to be a virulent 'anti GAA strain ' in many of the post here.
the sigerson cup a valuable completion in its own right with the standard some where between the top county teams and middle order ones and like the railway cup of old give players from a weaker county a chance to play at a very high level.
as for the scholarships they are part and parcel of University life and are there to encourage excellent in all of student pursuits which it should do though out the college .
Ireland is in the halfpenny place when it comes to scholarship compared to most countries.
Previously the only option was for athletes to head to often 2nd rate US colleges where most were never heard of again, though their education benefited greatly , surely it a major plus to kepth our top guys at home

Thereís just one very loud lad. No GAA members want to make the lives of senior IC players even more difficult to balance than they already are.

You said no-one was saying patting someone on the butt was the same as rape, I'm pointing out that there was a far greater media reaction to someone being patted on the butt yesterday than there was to the (doubtless many) rapes that took place.

Obviously all sexual assault is wrong, the rest of what you've written is drivel.

Please don't pull something out of your arse so obviously and then claim what someone else has said is drivel.

Prenty has a nice line in that peculiar strain of arrogance that runs through GAA officialdom.

Quote
Connacht Council CEO John Prenty has defended the decision to go ahead with Sunday's FBD dead rubber fixture between Galway and Roscommon at Tuam Stadium.

With both teams having already advanced to the competition's final, there has been rife criticism over this weekend's meeting going ahead but Mr Prenty has backed the Council's choice, stating: "you have to respect the integrity of the competition (and) can't be moving the goalposts mid-season."

"We've had several people telling us how to run the fixtures," Mr Prenty is quoted saying by The Irish Times.

"But last year, in the last round of the Allianz Football League, Galway played Kildare in a dead rubber, then played each other again in the final. No one said that should be called off.

"Roscommon are playing Cork in the last round of the league this year, and could meet each other again in the final. Will they call that off? And Galway and Roscommon have all used about three different teams, each week, so I'm sure they can find 15 players for Sunday."

Seems somewhat tone deaf or delusional given that it takes Connacht council ten weeks to play off a championship that involves six teams

Seven.

Some here would want to go to the colleges being mentioned and see for themselves how easy any degree is..

Damon making the sorts of logical jumps that would mean he'd fit in very well around here.

It was headline news around the world yesterday that some guy in Australia patted a woman on the butt - so if anything, there seems to be even more mass hysteria around that than rape.

Err, it is being covered as part of a larger story of systematic sexual assault by men is to be expected. Would you be ok if some random fķcker grabbed your arse if you were a woman? The "what the fķck?" here is someone defending Damon for trying to draw equivalence with a far more grisly act as if only the worst behaviour should be covered. That's a poor mindset to have in the first place, let alone one to espouse publically. Damon's best buddies in Hollywood - the Afflecks - have been deeply embroiled in these allegations so the perception he has coming out minimising anything is not good to say the least.

Guess what lads, if you're not a creep you're going to be just fine. There's nothing marginalised about men in society and some here and elsewhere would do well to remember that basic fact of life before trying to pour scorn on something that in general is very positive for women and men.

I like Gilesy but he's doing some serious projection from his comfortable home in England about what the reaction at home was to Robbie Brady's goal against Italy.

Yes it has to be pre Christmas to allow it regain some stand alone attention. I would also make it for non county players only

Say goodbye to GAA scholarships so.

Apart from the 2 or 3 Glaveys people nobody else will want to go to both matches this weekend.
Also why are club finals on a Saturday yet the Semis are on Sunday?
Surely the Final is more befitting of a Sunday fixture?

Ya what, lad? The die hard thousand or so Roscommon supporters who travelled to Annaduff in a storm a few days after New Years would definitely have gone to both if they had the opportunity. They arenít going to these matches in the hopes of FBD league glory, thatís for damn sure.

Leitrim v Sligo rescheduled game is on this Wednesday night under lights in Cloone,  Prenty and Co could have rescheduled that final dead rubber Galway v Roscommon group game for tomorrow also and then play the final on Sunday.

That makes even less sense than whatís happening. The Sunday game is clashing with club matches and at least having the final in the week off is better than jamming two games extra in ten days or so before the start of the league.

Those club matches should have been scheduled for Saturday as the All Ireland Intermediate and Junior finals will be played on Saturday. It make more sense because that dead rubber game with mostly fringe players starting would be got out of the way ASAP and the FBD final then wouldn't have to played in the middle of NFL in already busy schedule.

I donít see how playing the AISFs the day before because the final may be played on a Saturday - are players supposed to be getting used to playing on Saturdays or something? The FBD is by far the lesser competition and should be the one moving to accommodate.

The only solution was to make the group game the final and move it to Saturday or Friday night. Anything else is just messing about.

Martial, who knows what he'll become after regressing under Jose.
Debut Premier league season 11 goals and 6 assists.
This Premier league season with 15 games to play 8 goals and 5 assists.

Some regression under Jose there...

Seem to have left out a season there. Wouldnít be like you to schew stats so Iím sure it was an honest mistake.

What I left out is to say you were caught out for talking shite again.

Most stories donít make much sense if you decide to rip out the middle chapter of them. Get down off your high horse long enough to realise you scored an own goal trying to be smart cherry-picking stats. Donít say it if you donít want to be called on it.
