Lol. I can barely use a phone now im hacking accounts. Did tou know i also posioned the skripals???  Lol.   Speak to your mate & get them to put it back up. This is gettin tiresome. Denying something i have been defending all day. Get him to edit it & re post if he likes. Ive never been in a real saga before. I feel violated lool

Iím using this great proverb.

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.


MR2 you'd be better saving your breath, you're not gonna get through this idiots thick skull. As someone who has been in the middle with you there, and who has done the line for you, I have nothing but the utmost respect not only for you as a ref, but also as someone who has had the guts to come on here where most know who you are, which in itself leaves you open for attacks by people like this clown. The fact you are having to teach people the rules, even though they (he) thinks they know them better than you, highlights one of the major problems within our games. I applaud you for standing your ground and explaining your decisions, and you were 100% right in saying that refs make mistakes, just not as much as the players. Unfortunately as a ref you cannot, and will not, win. You'd be better leaving it stand with this boy, he can't be turned no matter how wrong he is.

All referring appointments at this stage should go before the CCC to ratify, well that's what happens in other counties but then again in Antrim who knows?

All appointments go through CCC here in Antrim also, that answer your post? There are no weaker teams, if one team loses a semifinal then they lost it cause they were the weaker team on the day, if a man goes down in the box and itís a penalty, itís becsuse itís a penalty... ffs lads get a grip and wind your suspicious minds in.

All referees that I know at this stage are gearing up to perform at the big games, to actually be completely biased in a match would jeopardise any chance they would have if getting games of any importance..

Basically youíre calling a ref a cheat. Some buck ejjits out there are actually doing it online here and have yet to be called out by their online clubmen on here. Shows you the level of paranoia this goes to

If you had to appoint the referee for  Championship Semi -Final .. would you select a referee from a club , who are in the other semi final ... just asking ?
what makes u ask?

LOL youre being facetious my friend, this guy is claiming that because Glenravel are in the other semifinal that the Glenravel referee doing his match will be harsher on them......hes a numpty. The ref in question I've known for a very long time, its not in his make up to do that, very fair ref

Why would that be an issue? Just asking

Possible conflict of interest for appointed referee.   Maybe not impartial enough .... just saying ...

Still donít get it, conflict of interest? Is he refereeing his own club?
There u go MR2.....

Conflict of interest.....

A situation in which a person is in a position to derive personal benefit from actions or 'decisions' made in their 'official capacity'

that help...?

Still struggling with it. As the only benefit a ref would have would be to ref his own club. Are saying there are refs out there that would deliberately biased against certain clubs?

Because they are winning.

People always sneered and hated the Dubs, its just gone up a notch now since the winning.

I enjoy it and prefer not to be liked. Makes winning and wiping the floor with teams all that sweater.

I don't think you fully understand the problem.  Unless something changes, you won't have any teams to wipe the floor with.  You are killing the goose, so-to-speak.  And that affects everyone, including the Dubs. 

2040 AIF - Dublin beat Kerry by thirteen points in front of 11,500 in Parnell Park to complete the 26 in a row.  (Croke Park was unavailable due to the One Direction revival concert)  David Clifford's son retires after the game, aged 22, declaring that he has signed a professional contract with current LoI champions Glentoran.  FM104 carry a full match report but it's a bit-part story on RTE Sport.  There are extended highlights on TG4 at 11.45pm though.  Incidentally, their hurlers have just won their third in a row, and eighth in the past ten years, having beaten Limerick in a dour affair in a dilapidated Thurles. *

*This may be a bit far fetched, but hopefully you get the point.

I hope this comes true :)

Saw a tour guide with a bunch of rain soaked Americans the other day at the top of Donegall place pointing down the street saying "this is Belfasts biggest shopping street, we will meet back here in an hour".
She was deadly serious too. I pitied them.

Victoria Square would be the biggest shopping area in Belfast, well the area with the most amount of retailers and decent places to eat!

that's gonna change soon, "Royal Exchange", the area from Royal Avenue round to North Street and Donegall Street, will be given the go ahead to be redeveloped. this will involve lots of demolition, realigning roads and rebuilding

Barry Cassidy and Anthony Nolan are the All Ireland football semi final referees this year. That summarises where we are at.

As an ex-Ref, and someone who has feet in both camp on AIF day, i thought Barry was outstanding on Saturday, Anthony less so

Barry is the worst ref i have seen over the last few years. He is disgracefully bad tbh.

definitely do not agree with you, there are a whole lot worse than him

The flag already represents the two traditions.

End of.

James McCarthy??? half back as he's probably not likely to get a midfield spot

Could not give a hoot if HQ have maintenance costs.

The rules of the qualifiers are clearly stated - Kildare are to have home advantage. Less than 24hrs from being given home advantage GAA turn around and try to take it away from them! There are no specified minimum number of fans that have to attend games so they should be allowed to play at home.

I donít like the idea that 4 out of the 8 teams in the draw get the advantage of playing a game at Croke Park. If Croke Park wanted the extra money then they should have thought about this beforehand.

The local communities in Cavan and Kildare will be losing out from the game moving.

Fair play to Kildare for sticking to their guns. Itís doesnt sound like Kildare are going to back peddle in this and rightly so.

Good Post!

Ten Armagh U20s suspended for their Ulster Final meeting with Derry on June 24th

Free the Armagh 10.

They will appeal and most, but not all, will get off

Firstly I wasn't at the match, I spoke to the missus' uncle who is a lifelong "never miss a match Tyronie", even he said Tyrone were at fault for the row, said they need to take a look at themselves.
but he did also say they should have won the match twice over

How important is it to get the tropical vaccinations? It sounds mad expensive here in Dublin. Can your GP give them to you any cheaper?
Is Malaria more of a problem up North than down South or everywhere?

I think we'll just stay in Bangkok 2 nights, then 5 days in Chiang Mai and then just fly to Krabi for the 4 or 5 days with maybe a day trip to Ko Muk. Presume ferries out to it or day trips from Krabi?

I saw this? Any other advice? Its 16 years since I was there last in Samui and Pha ngang

Any suggestions of what to do up North?

North Dublin, defo need vaccinations Iíd say

here lad, leave it out, you're more likely to catch something in West Belfast, especially down around the Bog:)

If you have a car allowance and looking to get a decent deal on a, lets say on a 1.6 type car, with a decent extras, where is the best place to look? I'm not a petrol head so for me any new car is nice, loved the Ford Focus i had for 3 years, might even go back to that type, but interested in something different

See my post above.  Kia Optima 1.7 diesel. Lots of extras.


Just went through a few of them on Hurst (though I'd imagine they are robbing bstards), £215 per month and £215 deposit, through the PCH, which is what I'm looking but 5,000 miles is the deal with 9p cover for over those miles. I'd need max 10,000 miles I'd imagine..

Lovely looking car and as you say plenty of nice extras on them

Nissan Pulsar Diesel 1.5cCi
