Lampard did win the Rakuten Cup. It's a nice trophy!

There's probably quite a few on here who never actually saw Spillane or O'Rourke play, might not cut it on TV but they were exceptional players, I seen Keith Barr cut O'Rourke in 2 with a shoulder / frontal charge, would put any man in the hospital, and, O'Rourke came on again 2nd half. On a team of hard men he was one of the toughest. Hence no great lover of players diving and play acting,

O'Rourke would not like Spillane then!

Riddle me this... serious question

Would the Dubs bet that Qatar side?

Would Luxemberg beat that Qatar side?

How do you think 'The Dubs' would fare away to Portugal? Not a serious question.
drew with them

That was a loaded question......

And thats the fundamental problem in your position: it revolves around YOU. Yes you are at a loss risk of dying from covid. You are at a high risk of transmitting it though. That's the part you keep ignoring.

Older people expecting non risk youth to take an experimental vaccine is selfish also? It's just depends where you are looking from.

Before Dublin tore the arse out of the system the all Ireland champions would usually win POTY. Mayo won't be getting a sympathy POTY this year.

I get sort of what you are saying, but Lee Keegan and Andy Moran were in no way sympathy POTY winners! You tell me any player that was better than either in their given year?

The issue here is one of totalitarianism.

Robinson has had Covid twice, he's a fit and healthy young man, it hasn't caused him any great effect.

The data on Covid is freely available. In the north, there's been 13 deaths of u40s in around 150k positive cases, the likelihood is those 13 who died probably had underlying health conditions like obesity or something else. Anyone with an underlying health condition or in an at risk category should be encouraged to get a vaccine as the benefits outweigh the positives. But trying to coerce, shame, force a fit and healthy u40 into getting a vaccine that has fairly negligible benefits for them is crazy, it's disgusting.

I listened to the interview with Robinson, he was articulate, calm and measured in his response. He seems to have looked at the data and decided the vaccine doesn't really offer him anything, he's had experience of Covid, it hasn't caused him any major bother. Top athletes across all sports are pretty hesitant toward it, they are fit and healthy young men and women so they don't really need the vaccine.

The greatest irony is that the vaccine fascists are the ones who seemingly have little faith in the effectiveness of the vaccine as surely it should only be the vulnerable who need vaccinated? They are happy to misrepresent someone like Robinson as an anti-vaxxer, he's nothing of the sort - he is happy for people to get the vaccine if he wants, he hasn't advised anyone not to, he's just made his own person choice on the issue with regard to his own health and we have some really nasty commentary from hacks with no scientific background or medial background trying to portray a very wrong and unfair image of him.

Joe Duffy is a prime example of this, he really is a sewer rat of a man. His comments were quite spiteful and nasty, wholly unprofessional and on a subject he doesn't have the foggiest idea about, not that it stopped him trying to initiate a pile on on young Robinson. This let us not forget is an RTE employee on the guts of 400k a year with no discernible talent, who was gaming the tax system by being subcontracted so he could cut his tax exposure, who was recently the subject of a defamation case due to comments he made on the airwaves which was settled for a 6 figure sum. A six figure sum that the taxpayer foots the bill for, not fat Joe Duffy. Now I don't know about you guys but if I cost my employer a 6 figure sum, I'd likely be sacked. But what happens Joe Duffy, er nothing.

That's RTE folks, insidious corporation.

Super post!

Thumbs up!

People seem incapable of understanding that the vaccine neither prevents you from contracting the virus nor prevents you from transmitting the virus.

People seem to pretend that this somehow makes the vaccine less useful when it's contribution is to reduce the transmission of the virus.

Seatbelts do not prevent you getting killed in a road accident, but they are still compulsory.

Transmission suppression has never been a reason for vaccination. There is also no research to bare that out. I am fully vaccinated to minimise the potential impact if I contract covid but I don't see how this is an obligation for anyone.

This is why most folk have it, they are looking out for their family, friends, community, health service.Those who choose not too are looking out for themselves and themselves alone. They literally could not be anymore selfish.

Most people I know did so to primarily protect themselves. The Vaccine was sold as a protection against the virus and a minimisation of the effect if contracted. After that there was a array of reasons - including people wanting to return to normality, people want to protect vulnerable people in their lives,  People feeling under pressure to conform, guilt trips and people who just did not question anything.

McEntee will have plenty of lucrative offers from Dublin Clubs. He made sure to no burn that bridge when he was on Prime Time when they done a bit on Dublin's financial Doping/advantages. He gave Pat Gilroy a free pass that night.

Manchester Citys sugar daddy arrived September 2008,  first Premier league title won under those owners was in 2012. If history repeats itself Newcastles should win the Premier league in 2025.

And Since 2008 Man City have won

5 Premier Leagues
2 FA Cups
6 League Cups

Thought getting and recovering from covid was a natural vaccine? And way better than any manufactured prevention? Thought that professional footballers were tested regularly whether they are vaccinated or not?

The witch-hunt on Callum yesterday by RTE was a disgrace.

I thought we stood behind our people?

How convenient just after a whistleblower spilled the beans today. They must be buying time while they destroy any evidence.
