Within the last couple of hours Cowboy Bob, SlieveGullion, Fred the Red and who knows who else have been taken down by the fun police.

The knight of the long knives part two.

I must protest against the Gustapo - Cowboy Bob was a superb poster, a gent, and a great cowboy.

SlieveGullion, although a Judas ****, was harmless.

FredtheRed was worthless, so well done mods.

Getting near the stage where we can pin people down to positions.

Anyone yet?

For me Earley has easily been the stand-out player thus far and is almost a shoo-in unless he pulls the wang out on Sunday or something.
General discussion / Another tragedy for Motherwell

Football star found dead in home

McGrillen was a member of Motherwell's cup-winning squad in 1991
Former Motherwell footballer Paul McGrillen has been found dead in his home, it has emerged.
Police confirmed the body of the 37-year-old was discovered at his home in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, on Wednesday night.
A spokesman said there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.
The striker was a member of the Motherwell squad that won the Scottish Cup in 1991, although he did not play in the final.
McGrillen is the fourth member of the Motherwell squad of that era to have died.
Winger Davie Cooper died at the age of 39 in 1995 after suffering a brain haemorrhage while filming a children's coaching show for TV.
There would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and a full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal 
Strathclyde Police spokesman
Former team mate Phil O'Donnell died after collapsing during a match against Dundee United in 2007 at the age of 35.
And last year 39-year-old former Motherwell midfielder Jamie Dolan died of a heart attack while out jogging.
McGrillen made nearly 100 appearances for Motherwell and scored 13 goals.
A statement on the club website said: "Motherwell Football Club are deeply saddened to learn of the death of former striker Paul McGrillen.
"McGrillen came through the ranks at Fir Park and emerged in the famous 1991 Scottish Cup winning squad.
"Paul, nicknamed Mowgli by his team mates, was also an active member in the former players club and played in many charity games and events including Dougie Arnott's testimonial and Phil O'Donnell's tribute match.
"Our thoughts are very much with his family and friends at this sad time."
Friendly match
McGrillen also had spells with Falkirk, Airdrie, East Fife, Stirling Albion, Partick Thistle, Clydebank, Stenhousemuir and Stranraer.
He was most recently a striker for junior club Bathgate Thistle, and played for them against Motherwell in a friendly match last week.
A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said: "There would appear to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and a full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."

I see there is going to be a leaflet campaign in support of the teacher.

Teacher questioned over attempted murder of school pupil
Jul 10 2009
A SCIENCE teacher was being quizzed last night on suspicion of attempting to murder one of his pupils in a classroom full of children.
Peter Harvey, 49, allegedly hit 14-year-old Jack Waterhouse in the head with a metal weight from a set of scales.
He is then said to have stood over the youngster and struck him again with the weight as he lay bleeding on the ground.
Harvey is also suspected of assaulting two other pupils during the same incident. Reports claim he was off work with stress earlier this year.
Jack was very seriously ill last night in a specialist head injuries unit with his frantic parents at his bedside.
More than 20 kids were in Harvey's class at All Saints' Roman Catholic School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, when Jack suffered multiple head injuries at about 11am on Wednesday.
The incident is said to have started when a girl pupil swore at Harvey, saying "F*** off, you bald c***". She is then said to have ripped a textbook.
At the end of the class, Harvey allegedly kicked the girl's bag and said something like: "If you're going to damage school property, school is going to damage your property."
Jack is said to have intervened and sworn at Harvey.
The teacher then allegedly grabbed the weight and hit Jack on the forehead with it, before hitting him again on the ground.
Two other pupils allegedly intervened to restrain Harvey and help was called.
Paramedics found Jack unconscious in a pool of blood in the classroom doorway.
He was taken to hospital in Mansfield, then moved to the head injuries unit at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham as his condition worsened.
There was grave concern for Jack's life on Wednesday night but his condition had improved slightly by yesterday.
The other two kids allegedly assaulted by Harvey, a boy and girl of 14, did not have to go to hospital and were back at school yesterday.
Harvey was being held at a police station last night.
Detectives have until 8.15pm today to charge or release him or ask for more time to question him.
Harvey is a married father of two and both his daughters go to All Saints'.
His wife Samantha was being comforted by a friend yesterday at the family's detached home a mile from the school. The pal said: "I don't think she could cope with saying anything right now. She is very, very upset."
Harvey's pupils knew him affectionately as "The Nutty Professor" because of his eccentric character.
But some kids said they were surprised to see him back at work after his absence with stress.
One pupil said: "He'd been off for the best part of the year. They said the pressure of the job had got to him."
Former pupils at All Saints' said Harvey was good at his job and popular with the kids.
Chris Holmes, 19, said: "He was an all right teacher and a decent guy.
"Most teachers can lose their temper. Obviously, he lost it from time to time but nothing like this happened before."
Another 19-year-old, Tom Blythe, described Harvey as "a bit of a legend" and added: "He would grow a beard and wacky moustaches. He was a real eccentric.
"He was into science and he loved the arts, especially musicals.
"He loved getting involved with drama productions. I never saw him lose his rag. He'd shout at you but he never got physical."
More former pupils left glowing reports about Harvey on the "ratemyteacher" website.
One described him as "one of the best", and another recalled his "great enthusiasm and scientific mind".
A third pupil wrote: "He made science fun."
A team of 12 police officers spoke to youngsters from Harvey's class on Wednesday night. The kids' parents were present during the interviews.
Forensics experts examined the blood-spattered classroom.
Det Supt Adrian Pearson confirmed a weapon was used in the incident and said there were "a number of witnesses".
He added: "Obviously, the whole class is traumatised. The school, the teachers and the parents are absolutely shocked.
"People send their children to this school from great distances because of its academic record."
Mr Pearson added: "It was a full, lively classroom. We have a full picture of what has taken place.
"We have arrested a 49-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder and two counts of assault."
Parents at the school gates yesterday were still struggling to take in what had happened. One dad said: "It's a massive shock."
All Saints' describes itself as a "lively, Catholic comprehensive with a very special, warm ethos".
It opened in 1974 and has around 1100 pupils.
All Saints' got a satisfactory rating in its last inspection last year. Forty-five per cent of pupils got five good GCSEs, including English and maths.

I know this has been done before but I couldn't be bothered looking for the thread.

Any good ones out there?

I am currently reading the wrestler Bret Hart's book - easily one of the best. Was a fan when I watched it a few years back. Before you all guffaw, it is a terrific book and while it is about wrestling, it is aout the personalities/tragedies along the way. Every page is an obituary.
I would recommend it to anyone, even those who have never watched or hate wrestling. Trust me, it is just a gripping read -no pun intended.

Interesting story about when he was in Belfast. Taken on a tour of the City by an ex-in mate. Mr Hart also has a hurley stick.

About 20 of my mates are on this now because we are a pack of losers, but I was the first one out of us. Thing is, I can't remember how I came across it, it was defintely not recommended to me. Was it advertised or what.

And on that subject, what were the origins of the board.
