Quote from: weareros on August 30, 2023, 04:12:07 PMThe FAI and IFA merging again would go a long way to unifying people. However the NI soccer team is such a big part of Loyalist male identity (our wee county, we're not Brazil..., sweet Norn Iron) that looks an impossible task. The FAI did break away for valid reasons. Probably the best thing is they are both such shite organisations, there will eventually be no financial choice but to field one team, have one league. But as for partitionist, I'd have RTE sport, particularly their lack of effort in trying to secure all-island rights for things like the Olympics given that most athletes from North represent the Olympic Council of Ireland.
