Armagh / Re: Armagh Club football & hurling
« on: September 19, 2018, 10:27:06 AM »
I hate the way Armagh groups their championships, why wouldn't you just have straight knockout like other counties?  Must take away hugely from the championship itself.  It seems a bit of a nonsense.

You would get people in Armagh who would probably agree with you, or would like to see some adjustments made to the existing system, but for all that the sense I get is that there have been excellent attendances at the games and a great deal of interest / excitement brought about by what is a novel system.

The system itself has been reached through a lot of trial and error and I reckon now is as close to perfect as is possible, with league and championship closely linked and all teams getting a number of Championship games, once the league issues have been resolved.
Iím reserving judgment until the championship ends. Not very many shocks in Senior, a few teams had the luxury of an off day which the set up allows for, ultimately the cream rises to the top and apart from Madden who should be commended for reaching the last 8 all the big dogs have made it out of the groups. Intermediate is interesting enough with all teams capable of beating each other and you canít really pick any certain winners from the quarter finals

Interesting  that the club who proposed this set up didnít make it out of their group which I found hilarious

Team in Armagh apparently amassed 8 red cards in 4 championship games. Doesnít make good reading but from what I gather they werenít involved in any brawls. Sometimes when refs strictly lay down the law, especially in championship, tackles and challenges that one might get away with in the league are punished more strictly.  Could apply the same to Moy/Edendorkís match

Therein lies the problem. Why is it ok to throw money at Dublin but not Derry or Belfast?

GAA Discussion / Re: Rule Change Needed to Stop Puke Keep-Ball
« on: September 12, 2018, 02:49:31 PM »
How about not changing anything? These rules are stupid and half the time arenít implemented. Iíve played senior football for 14+ years and does everyone on the field wear a gumshield? No. Do I see black cards being issued correctly, if at all? No. Has the mark done anything to encourage more high fielding? No.

 I can safely say I dread the these conversations, they only come about because one of the best teams of all time is at their peak or because slaughtneil and magherafelt playing puke football for about a minute has just went viral.

Iím with milltown. All well and good being on your high horse until you find one of these undesireables trespassing looking for something to steal so they can pawn it to get more drink and drugs. Had it plenty of times, wander into our yard hoping to find a door lying open so they can sneak in and help themselves to whatever they can get their hands on. Have had c***ts making their way into the attic before!

Again you miss the point. What about their employees?

I'm sure you'd be happy to be out of a job for 4 months.
What about them? 0 hour contracts and minimum wage? How many of the 300 staff are full time? Theyíre being paid for the rest of the year regardless. Tearing the thing down and rebuilding isnít exactly an overnight job either

Who was yer man on BBCNI news yesterday, Jesus he wasn't impressed.

Was it the CEO of Argento, the jewellery store that can't open? Saw him on the BBC website.
My heart bleeds for this poor millionaire

Maybe you could consider the employment and well-being of the employees in the store, genius.
Theyíve been relocated, I donít see the big deal. Itís four months. Not ideal, but tearing down whatís left of one the cityís most iconic buildings so they can get back to trading ASAP would be a much greater shame.

You're on a roll. What about all the Zara staff? Have they been relocated too?
If there were fatalities would he have been so keen to rip whatís left of it down? Apologies for caring about preserving whatís left of Belfastís built heritage. Itís 4 f**king months. Again, Iím sure multinationals like Zara will cope

Puting roof felt down I heard. probably stopped for tea break at 10.30 and left it on. Not sure if there was a lot of stock in the building but they would have increased the fuel for sure.

Sprinklers probably off due to the work going on, combination of carelessness and bad luck!
Sprinklers off? If that was the case Belfast has somehow escaped a potentially lethal catastrophe.

donít think there are too many colour clashes in Armagh, was always that the home team wear a change strip. Some clubs however point blank refuse to buy a reverse kit for whatever reason

Is it just me or is there something dodgy about it?

Nothing dodgy about it, Welders set it on fire by accident - were doing work on the 5th floor and something caught fire, thats the word from few of the primark staff that were out on the street yesterday
What were they welding? A jerry can full of petrol?
