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.

So, he didn't take it either?

Armagh lads were usually half decent at the wind up, must be living in Tyrone so long that turned ye into a blundering culchie ;)

Everyone see the video of BJS taking the piss out of the addict girl and making her slap a random stranger and call him a paedo? sc**bag.

Complete dirtbag.
Few boxers that project the idiot, sc**bag persona have lived up to it as thoroughly as BJS

Jesus some of the Tyronies have gone ultra defensive, not surprising! Fair play to you Jinxy I wouldn't have wasted as much time on it. If you cant see what is wrong with it then I don't know. I don't think Harte is doing anything that controversial, it just shouldn't be done in this day and age when all work places, clubs whatever are trying to be inclusive. The Tyrone senior team is a shop front for the GAA in Tyrone and the country, and whether we like it or not the GAA would be seen as a cold house for some and things like this don't help. It might not make a blind bit of difference to participation now or in 5 years but that's not the point. It could make a difference a generation down the line, and how the same people who would rightly criticise the IFA or other institutions cant see that is confusing. I have made the same point about club masses. There is just no need for them anymore.


Where was the outcry about learning the National Anthem in Irish? I would say that most Protestants would find that far more offensive than saying a prayer to what would be the same God. I know I would it far more offensive to have to stand for God Save the Queen while playing soccer for Northern Ireland (and plenty of Nationalists do it NP.) than I would for joining them in a private prayer.

FFS James McClean is offended to wear a poppy and every green Tom Dick and Harry in the wee6 thinks he's a great fella

And if your lapsed atheist or agnostic there is literally nothing to be offended by, At worst is a waste of 2/3mins. And sure tons of them waste most of their season waiting around on the bench.

Here comes the persecution complex.
Surprised it took this long.

He's bang on.

Where was the persecution complex?
You obviously have the mindset that Tyrone have that complex so you just roll out that line when you don't want or can't counter
 ::) ::) ::)

I would imagine he means the last paragraph. And he would be right

FFS he was rebuffing a point that he had made there was no inferiority complex unless he was looking to set it up himself as a way out of the discussion

If I said that the popularity of Buckfast in Armagh was down to it being such a dire shithole would you just let the point go?

The popularity of buckfast in Armagh is because we have good taste. Armagh being a shithole has nothing to do with t ;)

I assumed yer mans problem with Jinxys post was the in your neck of the wooods bit. Maybe I was wrong

Thats entirely my point...

Tyrone has an identity problem therefore displays of religion are more acceptable there
=
Armagh is a shithole therefore they need to drink cheap fortified wine

Retorted by...
Behind the scenes prayer before a match has nothing to do with the level of geographical acceptability of religion.
=
Buckfast popularity in Armagh is nothing to do with it being a shithole.

a) I'd imagine all of those players were regular mass-goers, as most of the country was back then.
b) Regardless of that, I still don't agree with it.
'What we used to do' doesn't really cut the mustard as an argument.
The Captains don't kiss the bishops ring before games anymore and the mere idea that they ever did is laughable in this day and age.
Times change, attitudes change.

Meath's success rate has certainly changed too.  :)

Yeah the Celtic Tiger changed Meath from being a band of violence loving apes to money loving yuppies. They cant see how football would increase their house price or salary so it doesnt matter anymore.

Any other form of team bonding could easily be ridiculed if there wasnt complete universal buy in from every single team member. The simple fact of the matter is that it is open season on religion these days so everyone jumps on the bandwagon of slagging it off.

The fact is, its a team sport and the individual must give up part of himself which often means doing things that you wouldn't be fully be behind otherwise, for the simple goal of the greater good of the team.

So you have a guy winning a fight by 4 rounds but its bollocks that its a robbery that he didn't get the decision?

Yes. Every single round was razor close. You do understand how boxing is scored, yes?

I gave him those four. A punch here and there and somebody else gives them to Canelo. There are world champion boxers who scored it 8-4 to Canelo. There are others who did the same for GGG.

For it to be a robbery, GGG would have to have won clearly. When you acknowledge that the rounds were incredibly close, it's impossible to win clearly.

Thanks for your definition of robbery I will spread the word around the forum to send you a PM next time anyone wants to use it on this thread to ensure that it meets your strict subjective standards.

He did say that all the rounds were razor thin.

I had it GGG but very close.

Likewise, but we all had Golovkin.... and he lost.
Its the definition of robbery
