It's good stuff in fairness. It gives a great insight to what it takes to even get a real sniff of the NFL too.
Like these lads haven't the cop (not fully their fault considering their lives) to go to class a bit and scrape a pass to get to the A division schools and then chat about big money in the pro game.

As an aside ESPN are doing a 30 for 30 on Ric Flair soon and it looks good in terms of him being a person. It's another mad world to get some insight into.

Not one official ref on here posting.. refereeing club underage tournaments or the odd game where the ref doesn't show doesn't count either...

You need to get 85% correct of 50 random questions to referee club championship games in Antrim plus a bleep test for the physical... it's much harder at county level.... I doubt very much that most posters on here would get 50 % of the questions right, let alone pass the physical...

Run around the pitch, immediately call a decision as you see it, not with the slow mo or angle the spectators see it, with huge pressure of being massacred by fellow Gaels and trying to be part of and entertaining game is a lot harder than you think... players management make a hell of a lot more mistakes than a ref!

Still a legend...

You would forgive a man in Linden’s form for putting his foot through the ball in a bid to emphatically claim his second Celtic Cross as well as that season’s top individual award, but instead, O’Leary is fixed and the ball is deftly flicked across the square to allow James McCartan the easiest of palmed goals.
McCartan immediately pointed to Linden, as if already thanking him for the acclaim that accompanies a key All-Ireland final goal.
Linden didn't even hesitate when the game's key moment arrived.

"It was a 2 vs 1 situation and I thought back to the coaching I had at school from Barney McAleenan: in a 2 vs 1 situation, you suck the keeper in and pass it off to make sure it's a goal," Linden says.

Barney and Linden must have been a dream team in schoold football. Linden seems to have learnt so much from him.

Even though he is 54 now he is the epitome of Mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí.

Season 2 of Last Chance U is out, focused on EMCC again. The first season was one of the best sports documentaries in a long time.

This new Comms guy sounds level headed hahahahahaha

An actual WH employee gave this interview to a journalist

http://www.newyorker.com/news/ryan-lizza/anthony-scaramucci-called-me-to-unload-about-white-house-leakers-reince-priebus-and-steve-bannon

Quote
“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c**k,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f**king strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

Quote
"Reince is a f**king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac. 'Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the f**king thing and see if I can c**k-block these people the way I c**k-blocked Scaramucci for six months.'"

"They're trying to resist me, but it's not going to work. I've done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they're going to have to go f**k themselves."

You can clearly get good coke in Washington.

Scaramucci is trying to literally sniff out the truth.

Last years bonfire....this one hasn't been erected yet

True, but the article suggested that a repeat was proposed.

For building a bonfire or for being so bad at it compared to the orangemen?

For building a ridiculous bonfire, probably in the name of Republicanism or some such, when carrying on in a way that is not associated with any part of Ireland other than loyalist areas.

Well it seemed to be very acceptable during the 70's and through to the late 80's due to interment, directed by republicans but hey ho, mimicking each other seems to have been the thing then

I'll bet you the price of your holiday that most of the arseholes organising this bonfire were not born in the 1980s.

And did I say they were?

Creedon: Drinking allegations made us look like 'laughing stocks'

http://www.hoganstand.com/ArticleForm.aspx?ID=273622

Outgoing Laois football manager Peter Creedon has once again denied that there was a drink culture within his squad.
Speaking on the RTE GAA Podcast today, the Cork native strongly rejected the allegations which were raised by delegates at a county board meeting two weeks ago, saying that the suggestions made the players and management look like "laughing stocks".
"Not once throughout the whole year did any person come to me or Gary (Kavanagh) or Tom (McKettrick), who were based and living in Laois, with information regarding players constantly drinking or whatever," he told RTÉ's GAA Podcast.
"I wasn't following the players around all the time but to the best of our knowledge there wasn't a drink culture there and it was really bad form to have it splashed across the media because not only does it make the players and ourselves look like laughing stocks, it's not a positive reflection on Laois either.
"Some of the things that were being said about us in Laois were just off the wall really."
The O’Moore men suffered relegation to Division 4 of the National League and 10-point qualifier defeat to Clare in the championship during Creedon’s sole season in charge, with Creedon claiming to have had only one discipline issue with players during the year.
"There was one morning were three players failed to show but they were dealt with. One player didn't play for two championship matches after that as a consequence for his actions,” he said.
"We were being accused of being too quiet and too nice with the players but at the same time we were slowly putting in place the actual structures needed going forward."
