GAA Discussion / Re: Gaelic Football RIP

The modern football era can be divided into two periods, pre and post Jimmy McGuinness.
What we thought was puke football was actually nothing of the kind.
I'd love to get back to the noughties-era football.
The rubicon was crossed in 2002 if not 03

I always felt Derry was Ulsters best chance to keep the run going in 1995. Tyrone beat them, but I thought they wouldn't have enough to win an AI. And so it proved. 1995 was a big opportunity for Derry to win a second AI.

It's weird that that team never really got close again.
Football was very competitive in the 90s. The next 5 Sams were won by 5 different teams plus Tyrone, Mayo and Kildare were also in the mix.

Kavanaugh is an extremist anyway. If Roe v Wade goes the GOP will lose a lot of female voters on top of all the blue collar folks it is shafting.

When he was forst nominated I heard several people say hed have a hard time getting through

There were plenty of other people he could have nominated

Roe is going down no matter who they put forward.

And there will be a backlash to THAT in years to come.



So whoever Trump puts forward will be unacceptable......thats the type of attitude that has us in this place to begin with
The GOP isn’t anywhere near the centre these days. Even Nixon was closer than Trump is. Imagine today’s GOP doing something about climate change

Anyone get the impression that a deal is done and this is just posturing to help May win support with the Brexiters by looking tough?
Or..
Are the EU trying to force them into a  No deal or remain situation? With a looming No-Deal scenario the support for a referendum on a No-deal would start to become overwhelming

There might be something going on between May and the Euros because they both want the same thing but at the same time there is a civil war in the Tory part between the Brexit swivel heads and the rest. May has to plámás them continuously. Eg yesterday she accused the EU of driving the process into an impasse. Davis did SFA when he was leading negotiations. He does not want a deal. Neither does Rees Mogg.
I think they deserve the pulp fiction treatment.

Brexit has been great for polarising nationalism and Unionism, in fairness. Tony Fearon’s  third way has been battered by ancient forces.
The unionist opposition to the Single Market just shows how hard it is to get people to act in their own interest sometimes.

Nothing has changed in 2 yrs.
Options
1.oops we had a bit of a brain fart and we will correct it with a second ref
2.Uk to remain in CU and tell the brexiteers to f**k off
3.Special status NI and tell the DUP to f**k off
4. The current course of hard brexit WTO and Scot and Irish referendums and the split up of the UK
Those are the options and they have not changed in 2 yrs.
Time she picked one.
Sin é. Brexit is a fantasy

The Bel Tel has to cater to its readership I suppose

https://m.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/what-are-theresa-mays-options-after-salzburg-37340331.html

Brexiteers argue that the UK could save its £40 billion “divorce bill” by leaving without a deal, but this could be challenged by the EU in the courts.

A swift resignation would give time for a Brexiteer like Mr Johnson to attempt to secure the “clean” withdrawal which many Tories would prefer.

One of the amazing things about the likes of Hardy and J70 is that they are not even shills who get paid for writing such nonsense. They truly live in a Walter Mitty world.
Good man Seamus
Well done on outing those 2 fantasists.
You truly are the voice of reason.

That will frighten the 440,000,000 EU people into believing the DUPUDA fantasy that "Northern Ireland is the same as the rest of the United Kingdom" - except of course for same sex marriage,  abortion, bi lingual road signs and being subject to an International Treaty that says it can vote to join another State. Not to mention all its natives having the right to citizenship and passports of another State.
The Irish diplomats played a blinder to get the EU behind the border issue.
