I think thats half the problem here....the likes of Eamonn championing the cause  typing on the gaaboard from some cafe in San Fran - hero. And Milltown saying there is absolutely no argument for anything other than what he believes to be true......and lads from the north talking about how government needs to change in other countries and there's no government up on the hill.....  lots of passionate people on here but I would guess very few who actually get off their arses and do anything other than hammer keys to post on the gaaboard....

Did you post that using a keyboard? "Hero" indeed.
you're not interested in the point Eamonn. I'm challenging you. Are you doing anything other than type on the board? Are you really a hero for the cause? what else are you doing?

Who the fŻck said anyone was a hero?

You seem to love to create strawmen when called out on BS neocon positions. Another distinctly American political tactic. People arenít falling for it. Either answer the substantive points he raised or donít say anything at all.

Hopefully this sort of case will reduce the amounts of casual one night stands, reduce the amount of parties at the end of the night when you should really head home! Cut out the mixed messages couples gave when theyíve had a few! STDís drop and fewer rape cases...

Then again Iím talking shit... I canít see how they will be convicted tbh (from fireside lawyer)

if you conducted a poll on here youíd find most people will not find them guilty on all areas, of course thatís made up ftom the facts, half facts, interpretation of what was said or not, and peopleís personal views regardless of the facts!

Your attempts to downplay their likelihood of being convicted for their crimes are well know at this stage. Youíve posted some variant of the above post at least six or seven times already.

Imagine having every little detail about your sexual encounter recounted in public. Sexual positions, semen, oral sex, vaginal sex, who was or wasn't there and your Mother and Father having to listen to it all. It being poured over on social media, the news everything. Both the accused and accuser. These guys are fucked whatever happens. What went on in that bedroom will hang over them till the day they die.

My heart quietly sinks a little further every time I see an attempt to draw a false equilevence between the lots of a rape victim and a rapist.

One deserves so much respect for their bravery in coming forward knowing full well what was in store, and will certainly get that respect from anyone who is worth associating with in the first place, while the other deserves every nasty jibe they get.

When you look at who is out for Mayo, you realise this will be nothing more than a formality for Dublin to win.
With Mayo its probably best to wait until throw in to see who is out for sure. Barrett,C O Connor,Higgins and Keegan are the only first choice players out for certain and Vaughan if you want to call him first choice. S O Shea,Harrison,Parsons and Durcan could play yet.

The heavy MacHale park pitch could well be a leveler also.

If thereís question marks over that many players then you already had your answer to whether Mayo were in trouble before you posted.

thats not what I'm saying at all. Thats not what you were saying either. You said there was no reason for anyone to have a gun in the house. And you didn't seem willing to consider anyone's point of view. Thats a different tune completely to what you just posted.

I think it can be figured out. I think people are fed up here. I think there are solutions. But there are also constitutional rights and a huge marketing campaign and a heavily funded/lobbied political base on both sides that want to keep the status quo.

I came here 11 years ago.  I hunted with rifles before coming here. I know a lot of Armagh men who came here and I don't know if they ever shot a gun beforehand but the majority of the Armagh lads living in PA all have guns now. Boys from Armagh over on the East coast of Florida have guns. maybe its these particular states, maybe we are all brainwashed? I had one up in WA the liberal mecca of the country. My neighbors and friends had them up there too. I'm open to believing I have been sway by the media, by the NRA, by people around me when it comes to personal safety. I married in to a family of cops from NY. There were always guns around.  My wife is fine with them in the house. My eldest kids have shot the rifle and the pellet gun.  I go to a range regularly and have received proper training with the handgun. Do I want to kill someone? Absolutely not. I pray I never have to use my gun in that kind of situation but I'm trained so that if I ever have to I'll know what I'm doing.
At the same time I am open to being part of a solution.
I just don't know how many americans who have guns are of the same mindset....

Away and shite with your sensible posts Iceman.............

Your description of sensible leaves a lot to be desired.

Wales name a stronger team than the one that took England to the wire;

Wales (v Ireland) - L Halfpenny (Scarlets); L Williams (Saracens), S Williams, H Parkes, S Evans (all Scarlets); D Biggar (Ospreys), G Davies; R Evans, K Owens, S Lee (all Scarlets); C Hill (Dragons), AW Jones (Ospreys); A Shingler (Scarlets), J Navidi (Cardiff), R Moriarty (Gloucester). Reps: E Dee (Dragons), W Jones (Scarlets), T Francis (Exeter), B Davies, J Tipuric (both Ospreys), A Davies (Scarlets), G Anscombe (Cardiff), G North (Northampton).

I can see Ireland lose this one if Ireland don't open Wales up and score a try or two. Crash ball isn't going to work.

Wales are toothless.

That's what the Scots thought and the English were lucky the TMO was on their side. I'd say you youtube Liam Williams before you make comments about how toothless the Welsh might be.

Wales didnít convert any of about ten trips into Englandís 22. Their best chance came off a ball that randomly hit a ladís knee and spilled over the try line.

If beating Scotland is your evidence of Wales being able to put big points on us, lord.. we could well win this one with a single try as our defence is fully capable of smothering them.

Looks to be, based on what I've read of the evidence to date, that Olding must be very close to being cleared.

Entered the room, and as the witness said while we would not have seen actual consent been given, it looked like consensual actions. There was no violence or threat of violence, according to the IP. Witness saw the IP's head on Olding's midrift and Olding's hands down by his side.

Jackson still a harder case to call. Medical evidence not great from his point of view, but perhaps key that the doctor said the same injuries could be caused if it was consensual.
Where did you read That?  Do you have a link?
Edited now. Sorry.

This is what she said:

"Her head was down towards Stuartís middle
Olding was propped up by pillows and his legs spread out and she was in the middle of them.
I remember seeing the movement of her face and more of her hair. She turned and faced away from me."

I don't think you still get that violence isn't a necessary component in rape, let alone when one hulking rugby player has already broken the victim's will.

Paddy Jackson? From the snippets and tweets, I think it's impossible to say she was raped, beyond reasonable doubt.

Youíve a strange opinion to say the least, AZ.

I'll read Philly's book when he stops pretending he isn't a scŁmbag on the field..

Anyone know what it is like to have your private parts discussed in such detail and across the airwaves?

Two thoughts: the accused should not be named until after a conviction.
Am more convinced a victim (if she is) would be better to try and take law into her own hands than go through truama and abuse of a trial.

At this stage as no one is innocent or guilty it is absolutely horrific for all parties.

No one will come out of this well and it is clear many lives are ruined irrespective of the outcome unfortunately

If the woman gets a conviction sheís an absolute hero. Stop trying to draw false equivalence. Youíve attempted it a few times now.

And in Massachusetts they have among the lowest gun deaths per capita in the US as well as some of the most stringent controls over who can get a gun. Thanks for proving my point.


I probably agree with you 90% on the issue, but disagree with you that confiscating 300,000,000 guns from law abiding gun owners would work.....thats what you actually proposed along with repealing the second ammendment.   Neither will happen in our lifetime

Unless 300 million people have assault rifles (they must start the babies early on them) I donít see where youíre inventing this 300 million guns being confiscated from. Probably just another case of you either not reading what was said or wilfully inventing a straw man.

Well I think if they stay with the thoughts and payers it should work. Jesus will sort it
why are you so hung up on this? play another record, get involved in the conversation or just make your point already

Because itís the cop out your neocon friends always use.

Expecting journalists not to have opinions now, are we? Yeah. Good luck with that one.

Youíd swear there was a Mr. New York Times writing every op-ed the way you wrote that.
