GAA Discussion / Re: County Manager Merry go round
« Last post by Captain Obvious on Today at 06:25:52 PM »
A strange choice for the Rossies! As a Sligo man I would be pleasantly surprised as I thought they had more buying power. O'Rourke was with Kildare, Down, Armagh, Louth and Queen's winning a grand total of nothing. A modern day GAA journeyman.

Who's in his backroom team?

He won the Sigerson cup with Queens and was on the Kildare management that reached the All Ireland semi final and very close to winning it. If the rossies manage that they will be more than happy I'd say.

Mike McGurn the S&C coach. A good few Roscommon  players need good conditioning.

Very good appointment there if the players buy into it.

Plenty in the county less than happy with the appointment. It’s no surprise to see you Stanning for an Armagh man, though.

The same tîts in the county who complained about what McStay’s cost was better keep their knives sharpened because O’Rourke and his buddies won’t be coming in cheapily. I can think of plenty of better ways to spend that amount of money.

If he gets the job I wish him the best but he has a hard task ahead of him given his track record in Louth and the players that won’t be available next year.

In other words you wish him the best as you sharpen the knife.

I feel that the Dems may be having another Hilary moment and are sleep walking again.  Everyone love a tough leader.

I think they believe their own hype and actually think the vast majority of voters agree with them

The majority probably do (not vast majority) but the Republicans are the ones who seem more likely to vote.

If youre a minority how exactly did life improve for you under 8 years of Obama????

If youre a white independent conservative, your taxes have gone down, your 401k has gone up and your house has appreciated under two years of Trump
401k only counts the day you retire

The GOP cut taxes under Bush and Trump. Without them the budget would be balanced.
Deficits count when there is a crash. The US is like the late Roman Empire at this stage. The next crash will be brutal because the deficit will make it harder to borrow.

GAA Discussion / Re: Would you be in favour of a second tier?
« Last post by priceyreilly on Today at 06:18:31 PM »
Would be an improvement on the 1 team championship we currently have

Your solution is to boot counties into the losers league and magically those left will make the top tier competitive? Absolute nonsense.

Here's a snippet of the plan that will save Gaelic Games:

1. Split Dublin into 4
2. Employ Strategic Development officers for all counties
3. Draw up development plans needed to improve Gaelic football and hurling in all counties
4. Employ full time coaches and other development officers to implement the plan for each county
5. Finance each county with the resources needed to implement these plans

Many county teams about ulster would not have McGurn anywhere near the place. He has not got a clue and got sacked from Armagh and a few club teams about here. Bad move

I believe neither the glowing praise nor this.

Surely a Labour / SNP coalition could seize power and change the whole s**tshow.

All the (English) parties are afraid that committing to a referendum on the deal is electoral suicide.

They are completely oblivious to the notion that not asking for the electorate to vote on the actual deal is akin to saying that it is entirely rational and sensible to have walked into a car dealer at original referendum time and when asking the dealer what he had for sale, he replied, "I'll sell you a car. Now, I don't know how much it will cost, what it will look like, how many people it will carry, how nice it is drive or what its like on the fuel, but just sign the dotted line here and that's you legally committed to paying me whatever it costs."

Complete utter madness.



edit: By all the English parties, I really mean the big two. I think the rest (aside the UKIP) are for a re-run of the referendum.


edit2: I say the above as someone who very much disagreed with the re-run of Lisbon treaty referendum - because nothing substantially changed. Here - it is worlds apart.
