The veteran Steve Johnson played a blinder for GWS kicking 6 goals to humiliate West Coast Eagles 125-58.

It's down to 4 now with Adelaide Crows V Geelong cats in Adelaide oval next Friday then GWS v Richmond in the MCG on Sat, I think it will be a Crows V Tigers grand final but the way some games have gone this year who knows.

League table doesn't lie.  Top 4 over the regular season in the last 4. Surprised at the Swans capitulation to the Cats. Dangerfield is something special.

Yes, I honestly thought the swans had got a bit of momentum at the right time but watching them the other night was like watching the swans at the start of the season.
Dangerfield ran the show all right, it'll be interesting to see how he goes against his old club

The Swans got dicked last night by Geelong with Zac Tuohy and Harry Taylor in particular outstanding at the back for the cats
The Swans totally flopped on the night and were a beaten docket 1/2 way through the 2nd quarter.
The Cats looked very impressive with more than a few reserves stepping up and looking like they played in big games all year.

Currently watching GWS vs West Coast and it's all GWS, leading by 34-18 at the end of the 1st quarter

The thing that always got me was why they had their studios in Donnybrook, one of the most expensive parts of Dublin, rather that say Ballymun?

Why, particularly in the digital age, is such extensive property and land required by a small broadcaster. Surely it warrants doing a BBC, it moved a substantial part of its production from London to Manchester, RT… should surely be moved to the West or Athlone and Donnybrook site used for public housing.
Cracker  :D
Were you not in school the day they were telling everyone about how Ireland works?

Just had a quick read thru some of those tweets , nothing surprising in them at all
RTE is a cess pit of nepotism and favouritism, when working in Dublin in the late 90's I was acquainted with a fella that used to work there as a carpenter, he was a local in one of the many hostelries I frequented in those carefree days  :)
Anyway some of the yarns he would tell us were eye opening to say the least, clock in , clear off and spend the day doing nixers, clock out , rinse and repeat
That was just the tradesmen, the tweet about the gym classes etc was also verified by the same fella all those years ago as was the 2 hour lunch breaks and post 10am start time.

The comments re Ryle Nugent are very revealing to say the least.

RTE & Iarnrod Eireann - possibly 2 of the most clinically dead and systemically pox ridden organisations in any developed country the world over.

It's merely an elaboration of most of his posts for the last few years really.
It is actually.

The Department of Finance made a decision that cost the country over one thousand times one hundred million Euros.
And a lot of it has to do with the official culture of the powers in Ireland. They gave a guarantee without knowing how much it would cost. How many suicides were there ?
how many people went into negative equity?
How many Sligo footballers emigrated ?

And the economic system is melting down again
And nothing has changed.
Next time will be even worse.

Like an Irish Hunter S. Thompson.

More drugs used than hunter by the look of that OP.  :o

It's noticeable that ALL the stories re the different scandals have mostly disappeared from the main stream media sites that has them plastered all over the place yesterday , there is most definitely the sound of the wagons being circled.

All the chat about the dept of finance raising the upper level pay scale to attract an overseas candidate will be just that , chat.

There will be no overseas commissioner, there will be a few token overseas candidates interviewed , there will be rumours of lots of interest from law enforcement professionals the world over BUT
when push comes to shove it will go to one of the Lads ( or lassies) that know the crack and will toe the line. Full stop.
There will be no reform. Anyone that thinks there will is deluded.

Even the upcoming "selection " process is laughable, the annointed one has most likely already been told "it's you"

I might be a cynical **** but we have been here before and with a rabid right winger like Leo the lovely in charge I very much doubt anything will be done different.

So what's to be done with the force now? Scrap it and start over like they did with the RUC?
Sounds too sensible, the Gardaž will be given more power after this.

I can't believe Fermanagh didn't even consider the Banty.
He could have revolutionised Fermanagh football with his free flowing , stylish , open brand of football  ::)
