The Indo will highlight court material about any « GAA star » from any county. Any kind of skulduggery anywhere is brought to the attention of readers. The idea that Tyrone is singled out is incorrect.

Yes as opposed to the egg chasers they will do so with great glee.
But with Tyrone they do so with a special eagerness

As for the article itself I find it disturbing. Very insensitive to the man's family. A man was killed, no report on the police investigation at the time or inquiry into his death????....just an attempt to link this into other incidents most of which happened decades later.
Pat McCartan I suspect was well aware what the journalist was at when he said this is the first time in 40 years that the press have taken an interest in it.
Disgraceful tabloid journalism but its what we have come to expect as a rule from the Indo

Do you not think he has a point about lack of discipline in the GAA?

In ALL counties when a player is sent off it's the exception rather than the rule for the player/co. board to accept the ban and not look to appeal. Even then the majority of the appeals are based on proceedure rather than the innocence of the individual.

Over the last few weeks we have seen 20 something cards in a Tyrone senior club game, mass brawl in an intermediate game and in the summer the mass brawl with the Tyrone and Armagh U20s.

But sure have a cheap shot at rugby. They at least are clamping down on dangerous tackles to try and make the game safer. In the GAA refs are expected to turn a blind eye to foul play if it means the "star player" might miss a big game for the club/county due to suspension     

I wasnt having a cheap shot at rugby (unless your talking about egg chasing jibe) I was talking about the fawning by the Indo and RTE to (their perceived) elitism of rugby

IF that was his point he didnt make it very well if at all... he was using a man's death 40 years ago, and targeting it as a particular problem in one particular county, shabby stuff.

He is quite clearly and explicitly targeting Tyrone GAA in particular and callously exploiting a man's death to make his point. He quite clearly gave no consideration of the man's family else in the article.

The incident was first and foremost not about the GAA, Tyrone or the clubs but the the unlawful killing of a man with a family. Using it to make a point about any of the former without properly addressing the latter communicates that he doesn't really give a shit about the human cost of that tragedy.

Tony Connolly's articles are second to none for an insight on Brexit.

Salzburg was just the beginning of what was always going to be an interesting Autumn and it gave even more fireworks that expected.

Tory Party conference next week should be interesting also. The word is that the grass roots are dead against Chequers (or maybe they are just shouting loudest) so was Theresa May's posturing last week aimed at winning over them?

I suspect we will see it wheeled out again in a watered down form to appease the EU (in spite of May's tough guy facade) when it will be up for a vote at Parliament. She would be looking to Labour for support on it as the Brexiteers (and probably the DUP) will rebel.

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

The too and froing on this lately must all be gestering. A deal must be close at this point.

But the key questions are...
Does May need a deal before the Tory party conference? Or does un unconfirmed deal actually help her?
Is she likely to survive it without (or with) one?
What does Boris have planned there?

Will she get said deal through Parliament?
Brexit group will rebel, will the Remainers also?
Will Labour back her deal? Will they force her to a referendum on the deal?

GAA Discussion / Re: Paul Kimmage interviews Sean Cavanagh
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:11:47 PM »
The Cavanagh photo was obviously taken and published by himself. It was made deliberately to look worse by doing very little to clean up his face of dried blood before the photo was taken. There appeared to be no broken skin and the blood would therefore have come from the alleged break in his nose.

In other words it was another piece of self promotion to enhance the claims of victimhood in his book.

He didn't post the picture. But please continue to spout uninformed shite.

I think you will find he took the picture himself and sent it on to a "friend" and doesn't know how it got on from there. ::) 

Read the article below.......

https://www.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/gaelic-football/cavanagh-i-was-knocked-out-but-i-dont-know-if-it-was-deliberate-37335595.html

What you said "The Cavanagh photo was obviously taken and published by himself."
What happened - sent picture privately to a friend.

Are you a slow learner?

Not quite as slow as yourself as you cannot tell the difference between posted and published.

If you don't want a picture to become public you don't send it digitally to anyone else. If you do publish it by sending it on to a 'friend' then don't feign surprise when it becomes readily available on-line on various forums especially when you are actively flogging a book and going around book shops for signing.

He neither published or posted the picture. You are wrong.

What shops has he been signing the book in? - More lies. You're making shite up just because you don't like him. If you don't like him that's fine. Just don't make up bullshit.
I'd quit now if I was you.

There you go again, mouth running off before putting any brain into gear.

Tomorrow you can have your copy of the book signed in a very small newsagents in Omagh. Go to Top News in Georges Street.

If you can't make Omagh, go to Easons in Foyleside in Derry on Saturday

Red herring anyone?

Published the photo  ;D ;D ;D

What is this about the thermite?
Cool (sic) stuff but what exactly was it used for?

I presuming that thermite has been plucked from the abyss to back up the old "A Jet Fuel fire cant melt steel" quip whereas thermite of course could melt steel.
Not realsing of course that the offical report steel didnt state that the steel melted it just expanded and the increased temperature reduced its yield strength.

As for Nano thermite well that just sounds made up, a quick google of the term seems to point exclusively to the WTCs
