Not sure anyone here is taking Fisk's word without question.  I posted a link to the article because it is by a reputable journalist calling into question the line that has been given in the media about gas attacks, and thus deserves attention.  And because he, like the British military people I also linked, cannot be dismissed as a crank, conspiracy theorist or Russian puppet.

Regarding the gas attack, if that's what it was, the U.N. has claimed that both sides in Syria have used chemical weapons.  http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/08/24/u-n-claims-syrian-regime-and-islamic-state-used-chemical-weapons/. So if there was indeed a gas attack, it is hardly a huge leap to wonder whether the rebels rather than Assad's forces were behind it.

And in any event, to bomb Syria before examining evidence regarding what happened, well, that's back in "but Saddam has WMD, we know this" territory.

Stupidity from Buffon getting himself sent off. Ronaldo probably still would have scored but it's a hell of a bigger task with the imposing Buffon in goal.

We've all played enough and seen enough sport over the years to know that the referees not going to change his mind. Don't know why players continue to protest with referees.

I saw it happen in a serie A match a few years ago. Google referee changed his mind, you'll see there are a few cases of it happening. I'd link it myself,  but it's a pain on the phone.

Not for my family values, by a long shot.

Actually, Russia has been accused of tampering.  From allegedly hacking into the DNC, to allegedly hacking into computerized ballot counting in several states.

The DNC thing was the initial basis for the Muller probe.

Putinbots abound, but that's just propaganda.  If that's the sole basis for the allegations of interfering in elections, that's pretty weak stuff. All of the states that would be regarded as major powers do this in their own way.

Seemed fine to me.  Just because he wants to see evidence  of election tampering (beyond a few fake facebook profiles) doesn't mean he believes Putin is a saint who would never do anything untoward. 

The main evidence for tampering seems to be from statements made by US secret services who have not exactly got a track record that would make one believe x on the basis of their statement that x.

Perhaps, but don't underestimate how much adrenaline must have been flowing through his system having just scored the winning point in a tight come-from-behind win to beat the county that had inflicted utter misery on Dublin football since the late 70's.

Nice gesture from O' Se, I agree.

I doubt it had anything to do with adeneline. Cluxton hardly seems like the sort of lad who goes around collecting memorbilia from matches so why would he have any interest in a ball?

I've never met him; I've no idea what kind of lad he is.  I wouldn't be judging his actions/character in those circumstances under normal gift-giving etiquette  is all.

That's Cluxton... when he scored winning point in 2011 after the game Tomas handed him the ball in a very sporting gesture. Cluxton booted it away. Not great on social skills.

Cluxton called him later on to make sure he hadn't been offended.  And by his own account, he hadn't been.

Or we could do a simple, previously used strategy by moving Dublin out of Leinster for a few seasons. Send them to Ballybofey or Castlebar in the pissing rain in May or Killarney in June. No need to tear up 125 years of tradition and breathe new life into the Leinster championship.

We done it for galway to Leinster in the hurling, I donít see the harm in for a year or 2 taking Dublin out of Leinster.

I love how so many people on this forum think that Dublin would have a hard time dealing with rain and/or wind.

That said, not a bad suggestion.  I'd say a lot of Dublin people would be in favour of it.

I'm under the impression that either the losers of Connacht & Munster should they win their R4 game will play 2 games in Croker; One as a neutral venue and other will be because of Dublins home game.

No neutral venues in Super 8.  Round 1 games will both be in Croke Park (provincial champs play each other).  Round 2 games will be at provincial winners home.  Round 3 games will be hosted by teams 3 and 4 (the beaten provincial finalist or the team that beat them in the last round of qualifiers).

Is round 2 the winners of round 1 meeting?

Its like we are goin round and round here.

Its just a simple question, what is the fooking name of Dublins home ground ?

That must be frustrating.  If only someone knew the answer to this headscratcher.

Are there two separate shows titled "Gomorrah"?

There's a movie from a few years back, which is excellent.  And there's the series, which for my money is good, but not as good as the movie.  Don't know of any other shows by the same name.
