Quote from: Itchy on April 16, 2024, 06:19:46 PMI just want to point out this stat. Cavan are unbeaten in championship against Tyrone in Breffni for more than 40 years.

How many Cavan v Tyrone championship matches has been played in Breffni the last 40 years?

That's irrelevant

It's all relevant.

No its not

To answer my own question one match in 1983 won by Cavan 0-10 to 0-11. Since then in other venues 8 Ulster championship meetings between the two with Tyrone winning 6 and two draws.

Quote from: Captain Scarlet on April 16, 2024, 04:35:00 PMThere is a lot of back and forth re Dublin who I think we should all admit would dominate any province. They are dominating the All-Ireland long enough so it's fair to say their depth would manage Ulster too.

But, that doesn't excuse Kildare and Meath especially. They should be up and around Div 1 or solid Div 2. I know lads are saying when we are waiting to be hammered in Leinster it breeds a bad vibe, but the league is something different and Kildare were annihilated by Cork and Derry last year. That is not excuseable.

There will be a reset and some fresh blood on the pitch and on the line next year, but the Dubs are going nowhere!
Meath and Kildare should be at least around the level of a Roscommon/Monaghan. Dublin being great is not an excuse for them being shite.
Kildare and Meath are the 4th and 5th most populated counties in the south, they have populations which are 3 times larger than Monaghan and Roscommon. There is no obvious excuse as to why Dublin are going for 14 provincial titles in a row.
And despite what someone else said about how they'd dominate any province, I really don't think that would have been the case in any of the other three provinces if they'd been magically dropped in!
They'd have dominated the last decade in any province certainly, but they'd have lost games too.

Quote from: marty34 on April 16, 2024, 10:34:41 PMI thought Barca's Gundogen was clipped in the penaalty box before PSG got a goal in the econd half?
The one he got booked after for for arguing? Never for me, he wad going nowhere and looked for it.

Yeah, that one.

I though he was clipped. It was a clumsy attempt at a tackle and I've seen them given a lot of times.

Doesn't matter if it's unintential, it's still a foul.

Doesn't really matter where's he's going. if in the box.

Quote from: HokeyPokey on April 16, 2024, 11:42:26 PMI do find it odd that those who are so against trans rights have no personal experiences or skin in the game so as to speak.
Not even Graham Lenihan or J.K. Rowling are against 'trans rights' per se.

It was heartening to read some actual experiences and empathy.

I do find it odd that those who are so against trans rights have no personal experiences or skin in the game so as to speak. There certainly are issues that need to be worked through, but so many of the so called issues are concocted / over egged.

There's all this stuff about biological males in women spaces being a danger etc. Most trans people use non-gendered/disabled toilets afaik due to being self conscious and the same crowd oppose that too with bad faith arguments about cost  when it just means adding a sign to a disabled toilet.
There's also literally nothing stopping men from entering women's toilets. Someone who wants to sexually assault women or worse doesn't need to become trans to do that. The danger women most face are from men in general and especially those they know.

There's reasonable ways to sort out most of these issues sensitively, but the witch hunt against trans people isn't the way to deal with them. The IRFU banned all trans females from playing women's rugby, which affected all of two people as far as I know. That sends a terrible message to trans people. Size difference is an issue and that should be applied across all grades. Having a set of guidelines, for trans women and for children etc. (as is done in NZ) would have been the sensible thing to do, rather than bowing to a mob.

I'm not trans and it's not something I can relate to, but I am perturbed by how such a large group of people seem obsessed with the issue, which is whipping up terrible hate against a tiny minority of society who are some of the most vulnerable people. And seriously, our country and world has much more pressing issues and inequalities which affects everyone and not just a percentage of a percent .

Sexuality, gender and so much else about humans varies wildly. Just look across the world, now and historically.

He was tripped with the ball still in play, and a chance that Barca could have gained a cross or a corner,  doesn't matter one iota if he was being well marshalled away from goal and to claim he was "looking for it" requires mind reading ability, not an objective factor. The ref could have pointed to the spot and there wouldn't have been too many qualms had he done so.

Quote from: J70 on April 16, 2024, 11:23:54 PMRecently sat on a jury in Queens. I don't think I'd want to run the risk of sitting on this particular one however.

I am very glad I'm not allowed to sit on juries at all but I agree this one would be horrendous
