General discussion / Re: What's your relationship with alcohol?

Slightly off topic but I was in the gym this morning and a lad came in mid 20's, I would describe him as a love island wannabee.
He was going flat to the mat on the treadmill and he took the phone out either to take a selfie or a video of himself, next thing I new he went flying off the treadmill and nearly out through the back window of the gym.

Everyone ran to see was he ok, me and and man in his 70s on were side by side on two bikes, we sat are ground and laughed for 15 mins.

Shoulda videoed it  ;D

What a gobshite for videoing someone with a few drinks in them. Iíd think less of that person than you to be honest. People that have the phones out videoing on nights out and stag doís are assholes plain and simple.

People have their phones out for everything.

I remember reading about a serious RTA on the M50 and people passing the accident were slowing down and videoing the carnage.

It was that bad that the Guards had to issue an appeal on the media for people not to be videing it.

Absolutely sickening stuff.
Aye I think some woman had been decapitated and all these sick cnuts were sharing videos of it. I like the sound of MRs rule to keep the phones under lock and key.

Iím at the door making sure they donít get out lol!!

Minors beat by 11 in Leinster cíship by Galway

Galway big favourites for the whole thing I heard, so while itís an 11 point defeat weíve seen bigger hammerings in these competitions over the last few years.

Not a massive drinker these days (a night out every few months) but ended up going out after a work do a couple of weeks ago.  Anyways, drank way too much to the point I woke up the next day with serious fear and couldnít recount parts of the night (I do mind getting home though).  Anyways, spoke to some colleagues on the Monday who said that whilst I was steaming I wasnít giving any bad manners and said there was nothing to worry about.  Since found out that a colleague (who I would be pally enough with) took a couple of videos of me in a drunken state (bit of dancing and slabbering but again nothing offensive) and showed them to a few colleagues (including myself).  I jokingly asked him to delete them but he thinks they are harmless and laughed it off.  Itís still not sitting well with me so should I just text/speak to him direct and say Iím serious about it or just take my medicine and itíll be forgotten about?  Donít want to create an awkward situation but people videoing stuff on nights out really sickens my hole.

I'd ask them to delete them in a more serious way. Tell them you're annoyed. Would it affect your job?

Ignore it, youíve asked him and as for being pally with him, just donít bother with him, heíll get the point and if you persist he may end up sharing it with others.

Weíve a policy for stag weekends, phones stay in the hotel  ;D

Saw an interesting discussion on the football thread re favourite refs.
Always had a preference to those that could let the game go and still maintain control of the game, if thatís possible. Was always fond of the refs whoíd talk to you with respect too, if they blew a foul, you knew what for an you got on with it (regardless of your manager/supporters being blue in the face!)

Owen Elliot
Skinny
Darren McKeown
Fintan McCotter
 
Def forgetting some good refs, Any others?

As a player/manager loved seeing these guys turn up

Tommy McIntyre 
Gerry mcclory
big Jim (god rest him) McLean
Eugene from Ballycastle
Gough, loads of respect and he was physically intimidating lol
Owen Elliot, didnít blow too many times and wasnít shy in telling players to wise up get up and get on with it.

Regarding oneís today Fintan would have a lot of respect from lot of current players I speak to both football and hurling.
Having done the line for Skinny plenty times heís a very good communicator on the pitch which is all you want..

There are a good few more but Iím looking at this from my own playing days, as a defender from early on to a playing up front in my latter days you always knew how these refís refíd the game and adopted accordingly

Latter years of playing the county did an extensive course for refís and Ray Mathews Garrett Duffy and Co became Ďsuper refísí didnít see them have too many bad games either

I think it would be better if refs were ALLOWED to ref the games themselves. Every game I'm at now, juvenile or adult,  everyone wants to ref it. Players  coaches, fans, it's relentless
Toooooo long, after about 2 steps seems to be the popular one
Tell me this, can a ref tell a player to shut the f**k up move on

Yes, but then heís being disrespectful. Every tackle is not a foul is what I usually say, hand on the back is also not a foul (a push is)  ;). Not tackling the ball is a foul too, so the slaps open or closed (closed fist is a card if not connecting with ball)

Waco on Netflix, have watched numerous shows on this on the past, this is the best take on it.

If ever taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut term was used, then this was it

You can't make people vote.

True. My point is someone who complains about how the country is run, without using their democratic right to influence how it's run, is a gobshite.

For around 70/80 years the Ulster Unionists party was the largest party, they couldnít win at tiddlywinks now. Votes matter (not that these Cnuts DUP are an improvement)

When I played mcclory was popular enough . Donít hear anyone speaking of popular refs these days

So you did have a popular ref?

Iím managed senior and there was plenty refís that Iíd prefer and there are some I like when watching my club. But youíve got to worry about your teams performance first before using refís as a scapegoat

Most people in Ireland have the ĎIím alright Jackí attitude.
Thereís also the fact that if they did somehow go out and protest theyíd probably be labelled ĎFar Rightí and people here seem to be petrified of being labelled.

Just keep voting them in, you get what you deserve

The French love a good riotÖ wrecking the place because of changing the pension age to 64!! What was it set at? 60?

Fair play.  The French  take no shite.

True.

We, in Ireland, always complain but do sfa about it.

Imagine the housing crisis in France, there'd be carnage.

Yeah the troubles was sfa  ::)

Anyone ever know a popular referee?
No   Thatís your answer hard job

When you played, you never had a favourite ref? Iíd plenty refís football/ hurling that were good guys and very well respected.

Probably young ones now feel they can use the ref as an excuse for their own performances. Kids are strange nowadays
