I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who thought this thread had become very distasteful.

I have just read this thread from start to finish and can't believe what some of you have been posting and discussing.
3 young people have lost their lives in tragic circumstances and it's pathetic to read what some of you have been saying.
As pointed out previously there are a lot of Tyrone posters on here and we all have connections in one way or another
to those there, and to those who died.

Anyhow, what happened on Sunday night was a tragedy and a very dark day that has affected so many people, and
especially the 3 families who will have to bury their children tomorrow. Hundreds of teeneagers went out for a night
and they got caught up in a tragedy that will leave a deep scar for life.

I had 2 nephews who were there and thankfully they got out safely. Sadly one nephew was a good friend of one of those who died. They had been classmates from 4 years old, and played together over the years on under age teams. He is broken hearted. At one stage he had been talking to him in the crowd, and the next he saw him receiving CPR. Last night and tonight he was at his wake, and tomorrow he will be at his funeral.  What a brutal experience to go through, and he's not on his own.

There are a lot of questions to be asked, and hopefully, through time they will be answered, but for now, we are a community in mourning and we have 3 funerals tomorrow.

Can't force amateurs to play during the week though can we. Both teams were asked to play on Monday but too many work committments. It is what it is, these things happen in amateur sport. I get it. All we can do is beat Carlow and let it work itself out with the other game. What alternative to the GAA have? Play it tomorrow?
Why can't they play during the week? Every last one of the Louth and Westmeath panel would have trained Tuesday night. It's completely shafting us if the scenario I described above comes to pass.
Don't be daft mate, it's staring at you in the face. Training in your OWN county for 90 minutes on a tuesday night is a WORLD apart from having a competitive match in ANOTHER COUNTY. All the squad would need to take most of the day off, between getting the bus there on time, preparing for the match and having the match itself and getting home. Get real. These lads might be from a different county but we'll completely run GAA players off if we start having short notice mid week games. If these lads were pros, then yes of course it'd make sense. But we have to think of these lads livlihood, too.
Firstly, less of the "mate" crap.
Secondly, using capital letters doesn't add to your argument. No need.

New York times reporting that both planes that crashed didnt have additional safety features possibly linked the crash as they didnt come as standard. Should also copy and paste this on thWTF thread.

Anti-crash device was an optional extra then? ffs
