I saw at least two Down players throwing punches anyway, but they stick out a mile in the red jerseys.

Saw that alright but haven't seen one Cavan punch. And have watched it back few times.

A Cavan man wouldn't even give you a thump.

Dublin and Donegal could be played in Clones or Breffni as a neutral venue.
Kerry/Galway or Cork/Rosc in Limerick.
who knows what combination will be in the other game.

Anybody who's wants a final anywhere else but clones needs to be careful what they wish for.
It's just the perfect amiptheatre

There is a good cheer in Clones that I cannot imagine will be replicated in Belfast.

Actually it was a much greater leap for Stalford than Arlene.  As a party leader on a planned round of gestures to groups beyond that reached by her party she was sure in her approach and knew what was happening in advance.  She is doing this round with the authority and consent of the party officers. 

It was easy to stand for the anthem because in her eyes and those of her supporters she was merely showing respect to the anthem of a neighbouring nation.

However, for Stalford, it was more difficult.  Given his Church and beliefs, going to the game on a Sunday or participating in political activity on a Sunday is a major issue.  He doesn't have the same cover as Arlene particularly in is local area and not being in a leadership role.  So, fair play to Stalford for joining Arlene.

Perhaps he thinks the wind is changing and that things will be different within his political career.

Tyrone vs Kildare
Mayo vs Monaghan
Armagh vs Clare
Leitrim vs Cavan

That would do, one 'big' game, a couple of competitive ones and  not too far to travel for Cavan folk.

Armagh getting Mayo and giving them a game wouldn't be the worst outcome of the draw.

The football is pretty tepid.

Armagh's behaviour after the game now matching their behaviour during it. Unreal.

Is Fearon gone? What’s the story?

He suffered the fate of the Armagh 10 for punching below the belt.

Yes - saving as .xlsx file.

Have you tried saving it as .xls (old format)? Maybe save it in this format before trying the problematic calculations.

On a personal level I haven't attended an inter-county game for 5/6 years. I cannot see myself attending one in the near future. That's from a person who used to go to most games. There is no point in posting the reasons here as it's been done to death.

For whats it's worth the Champions League type format has to be considered. It needs a shake up. Hurling is getting all the plaudits at the moment and rightly so.

Hurling is getting plaudits for the group format because the Munster hurling teams are well matched, hence the draws in games with 40 scores. You really couldn't be sure who would win many of these games until the final whistle.

The men of 1916 established a democracy, where women had the same vote as men. If that is what people wanted then that is a fair outcome of 1916.
