I watched the 1982 final on eir last night. Conditions were woeful but some lovely play, mixed in with dire passing and handling. Matt Connor may have had his worst game for Offaly. Brendan Lowry was great in the first half.

Dublin today would blow that Kerry side away, but if the Kerry side had the same preparation, jaysus they had some fine footballers.

What rumours? I think someone did get pulled up on a rumour about them having 'previous'. I'm the one who asked Dinny to take down the post he had up, although actually I think I said something like 'Are you sure about that, if not maybe you should take it down...'

You're such a spoofer Whitey, and perhaps your worst failing is thinking that because people are based in Ireland, they don't know who your sources are from. Daily Wire is run by Ben Shapiro, former editor of Brietbart during the Bannon ascendancy, who, despite playing as a never Trumper, is an unrepentant right wing nut job. Also, if you move beyond the headline and actually read the tweet, the exec never specifically says they broke rules, or that they were told that they broke rules. Remember, Facebook only changed their terms for data mining of friends lists in 2015. The last tweet, was that she felt creepy about it, despite not breaking any rules, and not using the info in a devious way.

So there is you, driving around all day, listening to talk radio....and I guarantee you won't tell us which station you were listening to. Somewhere slightly right of Genghis Khan I would say, I'm surprised you didn't go off the road when you turned the dial.

Listen, be as right wing as you like, be as much a Trump supporter as you like, be as bitter clinging, gun grabbing, whatever it is the fever swamp is directing you to be this week...but for God's sake do as all a favour and own it. Do it because you like it, it makes you feel good, not because of some lily livered snowflake excuse that you only support the 800 lb authoritarian because the Clintons were soooo evil. Jesus, you sound like something out of "Mean Girls".

God be with the days when you knew a right winger by the beers he drank, the John Wayne movies he watched and the amount of smelly hippies he assaulted. Now its all Ben Shapiro, tweets used out of context, and driving around trying to tune in Limbaugh.

Tell us how you really feel Easytiger... ;D

Hang on!!!! That's completely out of order. I like John Wayne movies.

Interesting to see behind the scenes.

Melwood is some set up.

And they are leaving it, going to Kirby.

Good man Laoislad! Would hate to see Laois in 198!

AZ - maybe I am too harsh - I'm a bit grumpy today.

What I am delighted in seeing again is the famous John 'Speedy' McCormack dummy that left manys a back flat on their holes.

There is a prime example about 10 mins in.

He was one of the best Longford ever produced.

Dessie Barry. That man could turn on a sixpence.

Jaysus SS. you're harsh. I've just watched the first 5 minutes and the football isn't bad at all. Lovely foot passing. Poor shooting alright. But that first Longford score was lovely. A sideline, and a lay off one two and a great long range point.

If Tipp lose to Down
Tipp Beat Cavan
 Ros lose to Cork

All would be on 9 points I think.

If Tipp beat Down
If Tipp and Cavan Draw
If Ros and Cork Draw

All would be on 10 points

In either of these two scenarios it would go down to score difference and I think Ros would lose out unless in option one Tipp won by a 6/7 points against Cavan.

Week 7 games go ahead as planned. No date for Meath Louth, down tipp. Both games may end up dead rubbers

I'd say that's what they are hoping for

For those getting anxious for Augusta - every final round broadcast since 1968 have been uploaded in full to the official Youtube Page

Something to pass away the days until this years version starts in a few weeks.

Stuck on Phil 2010 today. Tiger's whiny little interview with Peter Kostis, typical of him back then,

Great win for Phil and with the backdrop of what was going on with his wife back then - one of my favourite wins. Not the best final round by any stretch.

What you hear was going on, and what was actually going on, may be somewhat (actually massively) different...

With Phil's wife? I presume Puck is talking about the breast cancer?

Free-taking competition sudden-death result: Clare 6 Limerick 7

I would have a bit of a soft spot for Limerick.  Much more lovable than Clare.

Can Down be mathematically promoted or relegated? If not is it worth rescheduling the Tipp game at all? I suppose if Tipp win there then a draw v Cavan would send them up?

In the player score thingy what does the green symbol they looks like a whale's tail and a number over it mean?

Their Fed Ex cup position. It's an icon of the Cup I think. Not a whale 😀

Reference was also made to prosecution witness Dara Florence who believed she had walked in on a threesome and was invited to stay.

Mr Kelly said: “She walked into the room where, if the prosecution are correct, a rape was taking place times two.

“She was invited to join in. She said ‘no’ and Jackson said ‘are you sure?’.

“To join in a rape?

“Ask yourself this, if (the complainant), as she tells you, was not consenting and Dara had said ‘yes I’d love to’, picture what would the scene be – those on the left not consenting, those on the right consenting.”

He continued: “Is it really the Crown’s case that half the bed would have been consenting and half not?”

Either Mr. Kelly is labouring under the misapprehension that if a man believes he's not committing a rape, it can't be rape. Which for a QC, would be staggering.

Or, more likely, he's just saying things that he knows full well are absolute rot.

Did David not say above that if the jury believes Jackson and co thought they had consent, then it’s not rape. Essentially the woman could refuse or withdraw consent, but if the accused could demonstrate they believed they had consent, they would be acquitted?
