Wish there were a buy-one-get-two-free option.  Let's get rid of two other fascists, Miller and Gorka, as a precursor to the glorious ultimate exodus.
apparently Miller is Jewish. WTF

Best of luck to Mayo against the dheras.  I would love to see Rochford go into the Kerry dressing room afterwards, commiserate and tell them that Mayo needed it more.

I spent a few days in Donegal during the week.It's a place I haven't spent a great deal of time in.However I expected pubs full of craic and traditional music sessions etc at night,instead I found practically empty pubs and ghost towns like Carrigart,Downings,Creeslough etc. Is this the norm at this time of the year (mid August?)
Pubs are not in the best of health these days. The Gaeltart as they call it is usually good in the summer. Otherwise I would go to a festival.

Sean Cavanagh would be able to judge if this team has what it takes because he played with the last team. It is a competition for the whole country. You can't decide you are good enough even if the whole county wants it to be so. Ask wexford hurlers.
If you don't have the players there is not much you can do. Teams from big counties that were just missing something like the Dubs in the 00s. Even  Kerry go through droughts. Even if you have the players  you need luck
Teams that could have won but only got one chance like Roscommon in 1980.

Weaknesses are tested to destruction in Croke Park. Only one team can ultimately win. The margins are often tiny.

I just have the feeling that some people think that because Tyrone had a fabulous team In the 00s that Mickey has the template and can execute on tap. Players like Ricey,  Mugsy and SoN were special. It was even more special to have them at the same time. Nobody could live with them.

Most counties lose more all Irelands than they win. That is part of being a GAA fan. It makes winning all the sweeter.

If you are good enough, we will know shortly.  Good luck.

Tyrone should be sponsored by that's the why and the prayer never known to fail.

You really don't have to post every thought that comes into your head. Filter!!

Its tedious at this stage. I can only assume he thinks he's winding up Tyrone fans.

Just remember seafoid is rubbish or nonsense as Gaeilge, so he's just living down to his board moniker ;)
Tyrone is a belief system. I presume there is also a Novena. A lot of fans would work well selling equities.

I note that not everyone does the groupthink. Rois seems to be quite rational.

Will Connolly start? Will the officials be nervous?

We'll beat the Dubs, with him or without him.
Either that or ye won't be able to keep the ball kicked out

Those 15 years without a Championship win in Croke Park seem to have developed quite a large chip on your shoulder.
Don't they? We have an all Ireland final coming up in a few weeks.
Sweet suffering Jesus

Hmm your win appearance to wins ratio deosn't offer much confidence tho does it? I hope you donn't believe your gonna win or anything because based on those stats it would be a bit forlorn wouldn't it?
We have more than 4 times as many all Irelands as Throne and we never declare a team before it has done anything.
To listen to some punters on here it is as if football started in 2003.

Sure Galway haven't won a football Championship game at Croke Park since 2001. It's why you have such a massive chip on your shoulder.

Do counties win all the time Bomber? Do you want to have a race and see who wins most over the next 20 years?

And Meath and Down will never win anything again- can I have that in writing?

Seafoid. On the previous page you called James Damore the former senior engineer at google a nazi and then I would say unfairly mischaracterised the findings in the memo he wrote. Have you read his memo? Have you checked the research that it cites? He wrote the memo in response to a request for ideas following a particular meeting on the subject at hand.

Do you think a senior google engineer would just write an unsubstantiated career threatening rant for the fun of it?

In case you haven't read it here it is, in what I hope is an unedited version.

https://www.scribd.com/mobile/document/355823379/Google-s-Ideological-Echo-Chamber#

Of course both sides picked it up and ran with it to their own camp. So even if it turns out that the research he cited ends up flawed but has been peer reviewed and maybe disputed but not disproven why should he be attacked personally.

Argue the facts and the science, ease off on the ad hominem. But you should recognise what you are feeding into when you throw around that label recklessly. Remember you are reducing someone to the level of a genocidal monstrosity with that word. Perhaps that's why websites like dailystormer exist nowadays.

I don't have time to get into a long discussion about this here and I think I've said enough. I'll leave you with Sam Harris' latest podcast (that's right, there are people out there who think Sam Harris is a Nazi). It's quite instructive on the issues at hand and will bring far better insight to it than I ever could.

Juice maybe he is not  a Nazi but he is definitely a provocateur. The company couldnt deal with it. The alt right lampoon and attack  women, minorities, Lgbt and whatever letters.
Yiannopolis followed up by publicising the names of people inside the company who were attacked on social media.  Who is paying for all of this and what is the goal?

Before the 1980s, Tyrone were never really considered a force in Ulster having only won the Ango Celt in 1956,1957 and 1973.

However, Tyrone won 4 Ulster titles in the 1980s when I was a young lad and they reached the 1986 final against Kerry and maybe for the the first time I think people in Tyrone believed we might win the All Ireland some day. They had a great chance in that game and lead by 8 in that final but alas it wasn't to be thanks to goals from Spillane and Mikey Sheehy and Tyrone showing a lack of experience.

We had to wait 9 years until we got back to that stage and again we lost a controversial match against the Dubs which many thought it should have been a replay.

So those two decades were the beginning of Tyrone people believing they were good enough to sit at the top table, having watched Down, Derry and Donegal all win the big prize before they did. They often looked to have the players but not the know how to get over that final straw, some would say a bit like Mayo.

However, Mickey Harte came in and changed all that and not only has he brought the county 3 all irelands to date, he has changed how other teams view Tyrone as being one of the big guns in all Ireland football now.

So where counties like Meath, Cork and Down used to be considered powerful forces in years gone by, Mayo and Tyrone have moved up the ladder to the top table some would say.

That's why most Tyrone people have this arrogance about them when it comes to GAA football I think and they don't care if nobody likes them as that man said on the youtube video a few years back.

N uasal agus Iseal ach thuas seal agus thios seal. Meath fans had a long summer with Boylan from 84 to 02. It ended.

Tyrone had a mix of a great manager and a great cohort of players in the 00s.
But 3 all Irelands means nothing about the future. . Mayo won 3 between 36 and 51. Louth won 3. Nothing afterwards.

If Tyrone lose the next day that could be it for 20 years. Ask the Meath lads.

Whose Meath?
It seems to be a bad dose of Groupthink. I think we can say Tyrone have arrived when they win Sam with 3 different teams. That would be serious.
Nonsense about believing is not. OR is God behind Tyrone?

Alt right has a big dose of antisemitism. Josh Marshall is Jewish.

Josh Marshall @joshtpm

On the subject of mockery, I believe it is a deeply moral stance. Mocking bad people is a way of depriving them of power, the power of ...

2/ fear and intimidation. Marching around with torches in the night is performative menace. That's the point. One can fight that in many

3/ ways but not accepting it on its own terms, valorizing it through condemnation, as it were, is a key, necessary way. Does

4/ We'll, we can judge that in many ways. In directly and immediately affecting the targets, sometimes yes and sometimes no. But I believe..

Josh Marshall @joshtpmAug 12

5/ it always buoys those who do the mocking, gives them moral nourishment and strength. We shld never cower. And losing the ability

6/ laugh at the laughable can sometimes amount to cowering. Don't cower. Don't give anyone power or strength who does not deserve it.

Well since it's perfectly acceptable now to "punch a nazi in the face" or get them fired from their jobs it would be good to have a clear definition of what a nazi is. Also who gets to decide? I'm fairly confident that we've all been called nazi by someone on the net in a political discussion.

So has David Cameron, so has John McCain, Mitt Romney, George Bush, there's even republicans who write books on how Democrats are the real nazis and racists. So how does this work?

How does it help to keep labelling people as genocidal maniacs when you know damn well they really aren't.
I think it's fair to assume that anybody who flies a Nazi flag is a Nazi.

I think it's fair to assume that anybody who goes around chanting "Jews will not replace us" and "blood and soil" and carries flaming torches while doing so is a Nazi.

I think it's fair to assume that anybody who sticks around to participate in any way at a "demonstration" at which these flags are flying and these chants are chanted, has, at the very least, strong Nazi sympathies, which I'd say makes them a Nazi.

Feminists, on the other hand, are not Nazis.
Any group that goes to a public gathering chanting blood and soil with automatic weapons that freak out the authorities potentially qualifies.

Nazism is all about grievances and Violence. 

If the people in 4 Chan have grievances they should address them via the usual channels.

I think they are being manipulated by the likes of Bannon. He wants to blow up western society .

One of the saddest videos on YouTube is the 1955 return of the German prisoners from the Soviet Union.  There were hundreds of thousands of them if not a million in 1945  . Only 10, 000 made it home. It was Adenauers most important achievement  Before he killed himself Hitler declared that the German people didnt deserve him. Nazis are c###s.

the Daily Stormer described Heather Heyer, the young woman killed by an alleged white supremacist driver in Charlottesville, as a fat, childless 32-year-old s**t,
