I see the press have been covering the idea that Don Robertson incorrectly gave Celtic the penalty on Sunday with Griffiths agreeing that it was the wrong call.  Agenda anyone?  In fact of course there is an agenda but they have to do better than that you would think.

SHOCK Scottish media think Cetic got unjust penalty!

Dunbar's character is brilliant... laddies!
He is a great character actor. The scene in episode 3 of the latest series when Roz turned the interview around against him was as good a bit of telly Ive seen in a long time

Free state is used by those still living in the time capsule of 1922 and who are usually poorly educated
 Much similar to their political opponents who are still living in the year 1690

So you are well read on the history of Ireland 1918 thru 1949. Pity you are not showing much sign of it. Try reading some in depth stuff about the Boundary Commission and you will start to notice the lack of empathy that successive Dublin governments had for northern nationalists. Even the soldiers of destiny under Dev gave them the cold shoulder on many occasions. The Free State was the last entity in modern Ireland they thought might bring them to freedom. They soon lost that illusion when the new constitution (courtesy of John Charles McQuaid and DeValera) were introduced in 1937 and the Repubublic Act of 1949 was enacted. Both of which paid lip service to northern nationalists. So the term "Free State" can be a term of fondness and derision for northern nationalists. Fondness in that it was their last shot at realizing the freedom they had fought for and derision because of the hypocrisy of particularly the anti-treaty party who scoffed at their pragmatic approach to negotiating partition when the Boundary Commission was in session.
Do you find that big chip on your shoulder uncomfortable?
Maybe you should get one of those highly paid jobs  Michelle and the lads have up in Stormont built on the sacrifice of young men lying in Milltown cemetery
I would have thought an "educated man" like yourself would have been able to do better than an "ad hominem" attacking response like that. Take time and do a bit of research.. you will find that the soldiers of destiny worked very hard at keeping the history of that time out of the classrooms in the Free State for most of the 20th century.
No. I will not find that that was the position. If you wish to believe that go ahead.

So you're neither intelligent nor educated then.

Havent you some colouring books you could be working on?

I am looking forward to hearing from you when you actually go looking into it
I have more to do with my time than educating you

El punto del ejercicio es que usted puede educarse. He terminado de tratar de discutir esto con usted.

At least they are not complaining about the cost of cosmetics like Sandra McClellan ex SF td who was also allegedly bullied out of SF

She should have asked Michelle O'Neill, who obviously buys cosmetics in bulk.

Miaow miaow

And that, as they say, is that.

Back to back defeats to extremely average teams - no shots on target in the opening seventy minutes of each game - definite bottle job for me. Only an unlikely series of results will now see a play off place gained. A season that promised so much for so long turns to dust when the finish line was so close.

Very early to speculate but I'd imagine there will be significangt change in personnel between now and August and the chances of getting  a winning combination will be that bit longer.

One more year in the widerness beckons!!   :(

Keep Monk. Open the chequebook. Gates of 30000 will deliver

It's out if date terminology.
A bit like calling Gdansk " Danzig".

Danzig. Ah ze good old days!

As a few have mentioned, I grew up with my grandparents calling a trip to the caravan in Donegal a trip to the free state. Why is it so offensive to some? Is it guilt? (I'm being genuine)

Is it offensive to the subjects of Her Majesty to have people call Derry by the name Londonderry?

They deserve that for being part of the most oppressed people ever. Even Gerry aligned them to the slaves of Alabama
