Commonwealth Games
« on: April 05, 2018, 01:44:21 PM »
England have won six gold medals on Day One.

This means that, of all the countries which England invaded as part of their empire building project, none of them can run or swim as quick as the english. Hurrah!

If they could, they wouldn't have been invaded :)

They weren't all invaded, some were happily discovered.

And the locals unhappily discovered what happens when you're discovered.

That was later, at that time they didn't know they'd been discovered, savages.

Had Ireland been able to count to ten back then, it also would have invaded other lands, but we much prefered to be invaded

And a descendant of a native who had his land confiscated in 1610 (Ochaidh O'Hanlon, Lord of Orior), led the northern Irish team on their parade. That's cause we don't hold grudges in Armagh :-)

I'm having nothing to do with their British Empire Games.

Feather-strutting Brits trying to show how many places in the world they fcuked over and enslaved. No thanks.

So what do you think of County footballers partaking in a "Northern Ireland" team?
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Look its a tournament, Brits have been trying to strut their stuff for years and that wont change, but for some of these local grown competitors this is a fantastic event that may lead to bigger and better things or just to have a great expeirence, competing against world champions might not happen for these people, so I wouldnt dish these games.

But I understand peoples feelings for all things Britian but its a tad boring

For those who participate its a useful stepping stone to perhaps bigger things.

Like most of our baxers came through that route, so they did.

I've no bother for someone to use it as a stepping stone to better things or a professional career. I wouldn't criticise anyone personally for representing Norn Iron. It's just not my thing, and I won't be watching any of it.

Thanks for taking the time to let everyone know.

We have close family friends on the netball team so will be watching and supporting where possible. Will have to scold myself for the quasi endorsement of global British tyranny.
