2 aspects from today's OTB

Ann Downey of KK camogie said players don't get enough time to prepare for the all Ireland Final and that she would prefer September finals
Because the season is shorter the GAA's ad income is going to be lower

So any news from the club players? Or are you just going to quote county players? the 1%

I'm not sure the club players will get to decide. Club schedules are all over the place.
How much advertising do the club games bring in?
Should advertising revenue be driving it?
Should money be the measure?

Some gold haul from the boxers. They're doing something right. Pity Gallagher didn't get the chance to show his talent.

Why did the lads not fight him?
The other finalist did not make the weight this morning, not sure about the semifinal opponent.

This Cardiologist doesn’t care either in having the balls to push back.

To clarify this is not a BMA award and the BMA have played no role in the decision to make this award. We do not endorse the views of Dr Aseem Malhotra

Great job. Link saved.
Whoever loaded the fixtures had a ‘mare with inconsistent naming conventions and a few flags missed.
I assume they were handed the log in details but no instruction manual.

Most scores from play or most 45’s?

"Paul Rouse: Eight rule changes that could help to improve Gaelic Football" https://www.irishexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/arid-40902359.html

Why make one change when you can make 8!!

A lot of sense in those ideas in fairness
Most of them.

Not too sure about the 1v1 throw in or picking the ball off the ground. Seeing 2 women scrabbling on the ground to get the ball up is no great advertisement for the game.

Ditch the mark.
Trial 13 aside and leave it at that.

Take away a sub as well. More space, more running, and less fresh legs from the bench. Games could be absolutely manic in the last 10 /15 mins.
More space means more running and so it will benefit the athletes rather than the ballers.

The line that payrises will cause more inflation is a cracker too.

There was and is going to be a period of civil unrest with the way the cost of living is going vs wages. Wait until winter and people need to pay for heating too and with petrol fast approaching 2 pound sterling a litre plus.

They do.

How?

We're talking about people here on the breadline, not increasing someones already large disposable income.

A ticket collector getting 33k is not on the breadline ffs.

In London you would.

How about platform staff on £20K a year?


Two economists on Newsnight stipulated that the current inflation spike isn't being caused by wage growth (unit labour which is very low at the minute) but the non labour input costs which is driving the current spike in inflation as well as excess corporate profits which they talk about and is something the government can make changes to but have so far chosen not to.

13 minutes in.

The lady in particular who had no ties to the Tory's or Boris made it clear that the raising of interest rates was entirely the wrong thing to do as this current spike isn't caused by excess spending.

Have a listen yourself.

I have been saying that for a while.
The BoE puts interest rates down to discourage saving and encourage spending. Kick start the economy.
The BOE puts interest rates up to discourage spending and encourage saving. Rein in rampant consumer spending.
However it is not people going mad and buying TV’s and holidays that is causing inflation.

When your only tool is a hammer every problem looks like a nail.

Named his hero as James Connolly. The man can do no wrong!  ;D

He's still an unrepentant Brexiteer!!!
A very short sighted strategy to keep the  labour pool down and protect members by limiting immigration!

Whats the thought process there, is it to get them into a habit of winning and a winning mentality? Obvious pitfalls there that development stagnant and rude awakening when stepping it up a level but here who knows, winning games and titles will certainly keep all the players turning out.
It only works if no other team does it. If there is another shark in the water a club could find itself with 6-7 easy games, 2 tankings and no silverware, not even competitive football to aid development.

Carrickmore or Coalisland will tighten significantly after the first round.

The VeriFLY app does something similar in terms of providing guidance based on destination.

Some crackers in there.

Ardboe v Omagh
Dromore v Killyclogher

Moy v Errigal Ciaran
Trillick v Dungannon

Moortown v Clonoe
Greencastle v Donaghmore

Carrickmore v Coalisland
Loughmacrory v Derrylaughan

Dromore v Errigal and Donaghmore v Carrickmore for the semi-finals.
Would Donaghmore be capable of recreating Dungannon’s championship run of 2020 or is it too soon for their young players yet? They are bound to fancy themselves on that side of the draw?
I edited my original post. I think Moortown could take them after beating Clonoe. May be a year too soon.

Incels get blamed for most shootings which is discrimination. The media tried to bring incels into the Texas shooting due to his loner status. All the men in prisons are non incel men with many previous girlfriends yet the media call us the dangerous ones? Only one US shooting had incel roots, Isla Vista in 2014. All other shootings were related to mental illness or racism. What America really needs to do is sort out the bullying in their schools but I don't think it can be sorted as it is a part of human nature to bully the weak.
Where to start with that sentence….

Dromore v Errigal and Moortown Donaghmore v Carrickmore for the semi-finals.

EDIT. Changed my mind. I think Moortown could beat Donaghmore in the QF.
