Fournette is the real key of this Jags offense, probably their MVP given the balance he creates and rest he allows their defence to have. Bortles is getting the attention but it’s 27 that’s came up big time after time. And he’s a fecking rookie.

This is getting very interesting. Fournette is a beast.

Surprise surprise. ....
Marylou is the only candidate to replace Gerry.
Another reason for me not to give them any preference in for thronging elections.

That's not uncommon in many parties Rossfan if you look around.

Even in parties where there ends up being only one official candidate there's massive and public jockeying for position. SF's approach was anointment. Are SF afraid the grassroots would turn against Mary Lou if they presented them with a choice?


Why do you care?

Because I have an interest in my country. Strange, strange question.

The Patriots going up against a Tom Coughlin team in the playoffs? We've seen this story before  ;)

Brady will destroy this crowd tonight, I expect a three touchdown win for the Pats and although both teams are chokers in the losers bracket of the draw, I expect the queens to choke more and lose and go back to dinkytown with their tails between their legs!


Pats to win it all again, happy days, Brady is the best ever no matter what happens.

I thought the Patriots would win tonight but after this post I'm not too sure.

When's the best time (and place) to grab tickets for the Italy game? My old college roommate is coming home from Boston for two weeks and I'd like to grab tickets from a re-seller but at the moment they're trying to charge twice face value at minimum. Will it be like Croker tickets and the sellers get more plentiful and more desperate in the week leading up to the game?

There’s a number of basic inaccuracies in the article.
He’s a current panellist.
He’s from Mullagh not Loughrea.
It is still shocking though.

I’m not suggesting that it’s not shocking. But, for a national newspaper, you’d think they’d have the basic details right. It’s not like they’re a tabloid.

It was reported on GBFM yesterday that he was from Loughrea also. Probably read out officially in court that he was from that region rather than specifically mentioning the parish/townland whatever. A trivial point. Seems to get more exposure than Hehir, whose indiscretions were probably more serious.

Loughrea would be his local district court.
The fact that Glennon is known on a national scale doesn’t help. I’m a keen follower of both codes, and I’ve never heard of Hehir.

He was man of the the match in an All Ireland u21 final. Scored 7/8 points.  Was a serious player.

He's a pretty well known footballer. He scored a goal in the Hyde the year Des Newton managed us and made Galway look like AI contenders. They proceeded to lose to Sligo and Antrim immediately afterwards.

Looks awful for the poor lad.   Hopefully Liverpool fans have moved on from the distasteful chants that did the rounds at Anfield celebrating a similar injury to Alan Smith.

Trying to do your usual WUM skitch in the context of the seriousness of the injury shows you couldn’t read a room to save your life.

Speaking of Moysider, he has not been around here for a while.Maybe the last all Ireland defeat was the last straw :( :(
Ah, he's taking sabbatical as they say. I expect he will return again in the near future.

Ye said that about Sam in the 50s too.

Horrible luck for the lad. And Coleman only on his way back from a gruesome leg injury. Hopefully they’ll both be back starting for Everton and Ireland someday.

Whole hell of a lot better than the red tops.

Brady would still be miles better than Bortles with a hook for a hand. It’d probably save time on deflating footballs too.

Don’t expect any surprises in that one, at worst he’s going to be filled up on painkilling injections and high as a kite for the game. No way he misses it.

Sligo v Mayo game now switched to Enniscrone

Sligo team.

Aidan Devaney
Mickey Gordon
Luke Nicholson
Eddie McGuinness
Keelan Cawley
Darragh Cummins
Gerard O’Kelly Lynch
James Clarke
Paul Kilcoyne
Neil Ewing
Finnian Cawley
Adrian Marren
Stephen Coen
Pat Hughes
Kyle Cawley

We seem to be dealing with a pretty small squad right now, more or less the same team for the majority of the FBD. A few of the older guys like Donovan, Harrison and Egan will come in later on in the season and a few other key players like Muphy and McDonnell will also come in but it looks like we will have a very fresh and revamped squad last year.

Clarke has been around the squad for years now, he looks like he will start the league campaign, I would have thought we have better midfield options in the county but he has a big chance now.

Our defence will be very inexperienced and I think we'll be doing well to survive the league.

What's the story with Cian Breheny? Injured?

Has Ross Donovan unretired for a second time? I think he's a great back but this is some Rocky Balboa shít at this stage.

General discussion / Re: woman dies for want of a abortion
« on: January 19, 2018, 08:25:59 PM »
I think its about changing the narrative J70. Forcing a woman....I think with proper counseling and support a woman can carry a baby full term and we would gladly take the child and there's many more who would too.  I have a friend who went on a mission trip to Africa. She was raped by a local man and came home devastated. She decided to put the baby up for adoption.  Having a black child in Belfast 10 years ago for a single woman as a result of rape...but to her credit on seeing the baby she kept her. A lovely girl and relationship they have now too. All the instances don't finish so well but they all start the same. Some light and some goodness can come out of every situation.

The narrative?! Are you f**king kidding?! Someone not wanting to carry a rapist's but having to by law is "a narrative"?

Congrats to your friend, that's great for her. If Mary from Dublin is raped and becomes pregnant as a result, it is none of your f**king business whatsoever to be saying she should carry to term because there's counseling to get her through it.
Are you angry all the time gallsman or just with me. I wasn't commenting about the law specifically  - I was having a respectful discussion with J70 and sharing some personal opinions. Your whole its none of anyone's business its her body stance is very childish...
A decision to kill the baby in her womb isn't a decision about her body - it's a decision about the babies life.  And who are you to interfere either? You're not a woman so if I can't speak for one neither can you....so slither on
A mothers right as a person do not rank higher than my rights or yours or the baby in her wombs rights to life.
The mother can dye her hair purple, never brush her teeth or put makeup on - thats up to her and I'd never tell her to do any different. But if someone wants to take a life then I will speak up.
If she doesn't brush her teeth she deals with the consequences. If she has sex she knows what will happen....93% of abortions are because 2 people had sex and couldn't be bothered...

Unless you plan on flying over for the vote you really don’t have a voice on this one, though.

Ireland has chosen a path based on reality and compassion on social issues like gay marriage and I fully expect the 8th amendment to be repealed in a similarly forward-facing manner. What replaces it is the question.
