These are elected politicians agreeing that good toddlers with guns is a great idea. We're fucked.

I think we're seeing an early glimpse of a real weakness in the current competition structure. You have a good side that is very strong in defence, playing a side that they're not likely to beat. But because it's a league setup, and they'd give themselves a fair chance of winning the other two games, it's imperative that they don't get hammered.  So despite an imminent loss, there is no incentive for them to try to win if doing so risks a tanking. Imagine how the last ten minutes might have gone if Donegal had been facing exit from the tournament.

So, is it a rule change thats needed, or a return to qf knockout?

Are the four lads allowed to cross back into their own half once the ball does? Because that's just giving them, bt means of a rule change, what they wanted and couldn't achieve: the attacking team forced into a smaller area of the pitch, and thus easier to dispossess.

Imagine if Ireland had beaten Colombia on pennos and had "only" Croatia standing in the way of a wcf, as opposed to say the Brazil,  Germany or Argentina teams of yore. With the best chance of a wcf in a lifetime, wouldn't we lose the run of ourselves?

Dublin always play this way against defensive teams when they have the lead. I agree it's terrible to watch, but isn't the answer to play less defensively?  Or are we expected to repeat our hari Kiri Donegal 2014 performance to make it easier for everyone else?

It's like noone told Brazil that Belgium do counterattacks.

Whatís the feeling in Donegal about their teamís chances in this game? What are the chances of Donegal doing a repeat of 2014?

Would you ever give over with your trying to talk about the match...

I'd fancy either Colombia  to beat England tbh. Poland maybe, if they get their act together after the last day.

Why stop at splitting Dublin. In my opinion we should just have each club in Dublin enter the county championship seperately

Are you in favour of doing the same with Mayo?

Canít understand the narrative that Iceland deserved a point. They just packed the defence and hacked it out all second half. At least Argentina tried to play the right way, passed it around and created what few chances there were.

Can't understand the idea that they didn't deserve the point.  They executed their game plan almost perfectly and denied Argentina the space to cause much damage.  An exceptionally well organized defense, and decent enough on the break.  Well worth their point, and I hope not to have to watch them again.

They gave away two clear penalties, one called and one ignored. Hard to say they deserved the result in that context.
And the keeper saved the one that was called. That's part of deserving it.

I have an immigration client whose 23 month old baby was taken from her. The government can't (or won't) tell us where he's being kept, or who is caring for him. What the hell does the government want with a toddler, other than to terrorize. #WhereAreTheChildren

There are few worse crimes than selling children into slavery, especially sex slavery. Along with many others lost. The ICE and Border patrol individuals responsible for this, along with those who enabled them through this monstrous policy, should be given life in prison

Good thread on this subject.

Decided against watching that game because I thought GD was the tiebreaker; didn't realize it was head to head.

Seeing as the moderators have gone all authoritarian. I'll put my comment another way. The greatest weapon Israel posses is not the nukes at the Dimona plant but United states congress.

Yeah, that's not what you said at all though, is it?
What was said?

That the US was owned by "international jewery"

What's wrong with what he said? Thats exactly who owns the US. One only needs to look at the banks etc. They are a horrible religion of people, who wholeheartedly support the annexation that has taken place in Palestine. I'm far from an anti-Semite, but I'll call a spade as I see it. What's going on at the minute is a world joke.

Look at the banks...

Care to elaborate on that?!

The old "I'm not an anti Semite but look at all the Jews owning and running the banks" line. f**king embarrassing stuff.

What's embarassing is the way their shameful treatment of the Palestinan people and how the world let's them away with it....more embarassing is their big noses

Mods?

No difference in mentioning this stereotype and the Sinn Fein/ IRA analogy, the Paddy Jackson trial or the 8th Amendment. Worse and less true material has featured prominently on them threads.
Worth noting that not all Jews support what the Israeli government are doing and in fact plenty take to the streets to protest/burn the Star of David etc to demonstrate their disgust.

Agreed.  At pretty much every Pro-Palestinian march I've been to or seen photos of, there are orthodox Jews present, holding posters to the effect that the Talmud itself forbids a Jewish state/homeland.  I can't speak to the accuracy of that claim, but they're always there.
