I always thought this was pretty clear cut.

Refusing to serve someone for being gay is illegal.

Refusing to produce a cake supporting changing a particular law, not illegal.

Am I missing something?

GFA enshrines the principle of consent being a Northern Ireland only concern. This is a major thing for unionism to have enshrined in law.  Why she would riak saying this is not sacrosanct I cannot believe.
Saying they could work with Boris....???


I think they are trying to threaten May.

Sounds like Murray is properly fûcked.

Have you heard anything concrete?

https://www.rte.ie/sport/rugby/2018/0926/998176-upon-his-request-i-cant-comment-on-conors-injury/

You don’t tell the club staff not to go into detail if you think it’s something minor. Van Graan actually scored a bit of an own goal telling the public why he wasn’t going into detail on the injury because it was far more telling than if he just refused to comment. I hadn’t been keeping up with club rugby but they signed a foreign scrum-half to replace Murray, you don’t waste one of those import slots on someone if you think Murray’s going to be back in the near term.

The obvious worst case scenario is the continuous BS reports from Heaslip’s camp of him “progressing well” with his back injury and then having to retire before even getting near a pitch. A neck injury is serious at the best of times, nevermind if you’re unsure of when or if you’ll be able to come back.

As a counter balance said foreign scrum-half is on a four-month contract which does not smack of permanence.  Throw in the fact that Murray is about to become the highest paid IRFU player.  Given what happened with Heaslip would the IRFU really again spend all that money on a crocked player?

Speculative points but then again so is yours.

May I once again recommend this to Seamus and the lads?

Hardy,

Initially I thought your posts were motivated by being one of them

However, I now realize that you are just another sheep.  You have become docile and unquestioning due to fluoridation of our drinking water.  Governments introduced this post World War 2 under instruction from the Illuminati. They tell you it's good for your teeth but they also fill those same teeth with poisonous mercury.

Yeah but Shane Long had a poor season last year. Which probably made things look worse.

70 goals in 92/93 - who would have got the bulk of those? Big Quinny, Townsend, Houghton, Keane, Irwin, Staunton, Sheridan, McGrath etc. that's a quare load of goals considering there was only one Irish striker. And Quinn was hardly prolific.

Had a look on statsbunker. Quinn was top With 9, then Keane 6, Irwin 5...soon you are Stan with 2, Ronnie Whelan with 1. There must gave been a fair old spread to get to 70.

Is it time to close this thread maybe??

If this thread gets closed it will just be further evidence of a clandestine neo-con, Zionist, new World Order secretly running the world.....and also moderating this forum.

This is very funny. I can't decide which bit is best but I'm going with "Travel documents used by Petrov are marked as ‘top secret’"

Weed and Hookers?

Surely top class spies would pick up women (with a connection to their adversary) at a high class casino?  They wouldn't be paying to get their end away.  Also their quartermaster would give the a briefcase of money to be buying coke, good coke too not the chopped to shit variety the rest of us put up with.

I watched a documentary on these theories and an apparent contradiction struck me.  A number of people were put forward as experts, with suitably grandiose titles.  I haven't the engineering, explosive or demolition knowledge to quibble with their theories.  However their focus was on Twin Towers and Pentagon.  When it came to Flight 93 though the conspiracy was that a fighter shot down the plane to stop it attacking Washington.

So is it that on the same day that the US/Zionists/whoever planned a false flag attack on two targets that another high-jacking occurred?  Was it another false flag operation that was in turn double-crossed?  Were the hijackers, speaking Arabic bona-fide terrorists?  Had they been turned?  Were they actors? 

All the calls from the plane were they faked? 

No mention was made of the accused hijackers either.  Did they exist?  Were working for US/Zionists?

As a layman I can't argue against either side when it comes to Thermite, building collapsing etc.. but what my instinct tells me is that if you are going for a false flag operation of such as sensitive nature you wouldn't go with 4 planes and targets.  It's too many moving parts. 

To get a number of people with a past history of Islamic activism to cooperate seems beyond possibility.   To get enough of people in on the act to pretend they were there is beyond possibility.  To fake that many identities and backstories is beyond possibility.

I think to create a conspiracy around this you would have to at least concede that these fcukers set out to do what they did of their own accord but that someone somewhere chose to turn a blind eye because they thought it would trigger a reaction....even that is pretty dubious.

I have heard various theories about each of the attacks but never something that fitted all together.

Where do we go from here?

We await instructions from The Hatch. The good gentlemen there will decide shortly.

Deliberations in The Hatch almost complete.  County Board and the Hoi polloi will be informed in due course.

Hurling Discussion / Re: Hurling championship 2018
« on: August 16, 2018, 09:11:01 AM »
Limerick will think they are better than Clare and they should have beaten them so why can't we?

Limerick played and lost to Clare  in this year's championship.  Limerick played and lost to Clare in last year's championship.  All I can think is that Brendan is going on a League game that Clare had won and then took eye off the ball and Limerick won on a free taking competition.

I doubt John Kiely is as daft as Brendan. He will know that O'Donoghue will look at Clare Limerick game in Ennis and probably when give one of Clare management a call.

They will discuss that when Clare shutdown Flanagan, Dowling up front (Gillane didn't play) and Hayes and Lynch in midfield then Limerick got badly stuck because their open game was shut down.

They lost discipline and also full back line could not contain Conlon (substitute Glynn for Conlon?) . Management had bad day by going sweeper to try and block Conlon but they left Jamie Shanahan freedom of the park. For a finish Clare had 7 forwards on field completely pushed up on a 14 man Limerick.

Galway will not play the nice open hurling of Cork.  They will have more than the 60mins of graft that Kilkenny had.  They beat Clare which Limerick couldn't do.

Limerick might win, especially if they get on top in middle third but Brenny gives no explanation of how they will do that.

Hurling Discussion / Re: Hurling championship 2018

There is none. If you're fouled and the refs plays advantage I'm not aware of any caveat that allows the fouled player to foul himself without punishment.

You're 100% correct. However, if the refs started calling this by the letter of the law there could be unintended consequences of increased pulling and dragging. Why would you not foul a lad going through on goal, and there is no black card! One of the reasons the big hurling games have been so exciting has been refs letting so much go. I can understand how that can be frustrating in equal measure. Mannion was fouled blatantly 3 times in 30 seconds at the end of the first half and the ref just let it run.

In a practical sense the steps one if policed that way would give no advantage in a lot of cases. 

Take a scenario where a player is dragged on his third or fourth step.  The ref gives advantage to the now off-balance player and he corrects his run.  Immediately a free for over-carrying.  Regardless of rule, it appears to the games I am watching the ref is either:

1) Giving a couple of steps grace
2) Counting from advantage on
3) Just going with the flow

I know many will say it is number 3!

I can't claim to be well versed in the particular rules but that was the explanation given on Sunday Game for Ger Aylward goal standing.

I haven't watched Shane's goal back yet to count steps so don't know how many he actually took.  I would maintain though that he was trying to play the ball fair.  Calling it back would be a reward to those dragging out of him.

You can't overcarry on advantage.

They reset the step count at point advantage is given.  In a practical sense, how a ref can watch and decide on all those factors I have no idea.

But on balance I think O'Donell's goal was fair to stand.  Calling it back to give him a free would be rewarding Galway for dragging him back.
