GAA Discussion / Re: New Jerseys?
« on: January 19, 2022, 10:05:26 PM »
Has anyone had Playr-Fit or SB Sports gear for their clubs? Club has been looking at some kits for U7/U9 etc. Both seem reasonable but not much cheaper than O'Neills. Both are keen to get stuff in though. Not overly sure on the quality of either. I know a local boxing club got the SB stuff and they seem happy with it. Going to look at MFC and Peninsula Sports too. I'm wary of getting more training like tops instead of jerseys but if we're honest even O'Neills jerseys don't last that long anymore. We've ones from 15 years ago and they're in better shape than some of the new ones.
Our club have been using MFC for 4 or 5 years now, top quality gear and 10 times better service than OíNeillís, canít see us ever changing, much better value too

folks am I correct in saying MFC don't do an official match day jersey for competitive games for boys/men..so basically you shouldn't be wearing it outside of go games, non-competitive fixtures etc... only oneill, mckeever and azzuri can provide match day jerseys?

To be fair it would be a poor job if Dromore didnít support MFC.

Yeah they cant use GAA logo. You have to have license to do the official gaa jerseys.

Poor girl must have put up a hell of a fight for her life if the Gardai were putting the word out for hospitals to be on the alert for people with injuries and wounds.

I believe she broke the guys jaw.

Just a pity it wasnít his neck.

Main suspect isn't even Irish it's a Roma gypsy from Slovakia, so what this has to do with Catholic schools, dressing room banter, catcalling, men's golf clubs, WhatsApp groups, education or even Irish men writ large is beyond me.

Just more feminist man hating rubbish from the usual suspects. I doubt said suspect even went to school and isn't even here that long.

It's a terrible tragedy but just been hijacked by the usual interest groups, RTE and other attention seekers like Keith Walsh. They couldn't even give the family and loved ones a couple days privacy which they requested.

You do realise that the murder is a very very small part of what the problem is?  Itís is the worst case scenario but male violence and inappropriate behaviour towards women is widespread and endemic. This culture needs to change. The fact that you have men trying to hijack vigils for a murdered woman by exposing them self and trying to masturbate sums the issue up. If you canít see that then you are part of the problem

I read about that on Twitter. Hopefully they can trace rhe IP address. Social media is a complete cesspit! Especially Twitter. I did notice one of the main women giving off on Twitter was a woman who had an only fans account. Is she not part of the overall problem as well?

Not sure what only fans is as it's blocked by my company internet browsing settings but I believe it's safe to assume it's not a betting site and seems to be a site for sharing videos and pictures behind a paywall, probably NSFW correct?

I'm not sure of your logic but if this girl decides to post videos or pictures of herself and get a few bob from whoever, then she's enticing violence towards women or she herself is objectifying women as sex objects so can't complain if we men sexually objectify them, is that it?

I know you're not suggesting that a girl "is asking for it" if they wear short skirts as you always come across as having more wit about you.

Onlyfans is basically porn therefore it is part of the problem.  But maybe its all about empowering strong, independent women with regards to their bodies.

I think this is a different argument and maybe not one for now. Whether in the porn industry or not, no one is asking to be abused. That should be very clear.
However having someone in this industry castrating men for objectifying women, in my eyes is on very shaky ground.
That said, she is absolutely within her right to highlight the issue of violence against woman, consent etc that are a huge part of this wider issue.

Your comments are balanced and rational but those of Liverpool fans are biased?

Conspiracy theory v lab f**k up.

Things I cannot understand:

1: why Leicester fans canít accept that itís wrong for James Maddison to attend the world darts when the Christmas football peak meets omnicron.

2. Why Arsenal fans canít accept that no matter what happens to them, they will have more players to pick from when the spurs game is rescheduled, and it had nothing to do with Covid.

3. Why Liverpool fans canít accept that it was convenient and timely to conjure up a short break for their small squad of senior pros in early January.

Have your allegiances, by all means. But please, donít behave like a 9 year old when ďyourĒ club is under the spotlight.

As mentioned previously, the culture of professional soccer is one of institutionalised cheating. No matter who your  beloved club is, if you think they wouldnít lie to take advantage of a situation, then youíre beyond help.

The ego on this one. 😂😂

Donít behave like a spoilt child just cause someone doesnít believe your opinion. You are not an oracle despite your belief that you are.

The Aussies and kiwis have lost the plot , he should never go back there again.

Was thinking the same regarding the next Australian Open(s), if he doesn't go it will devalue the competition.

Not his choice I thought. Banned from Oz for 3 years is he not.

Not necessarily. But the long amounts of quotes to see who says what is an annoying feature of this board.
Iíd politely beg to differ.

Tbh I would be shocked if he resigned. I don't think this boy is going anywhere until he is knifed in the back. He will be eventually and I think he is definitely stretching the boundaries but it would need a lot of alignment and a concerted effort and I think the other ones are all so self serving they wouldn't have it in them to do a joint effort.

The Torys are ruthless hoors if they think Boris is a liability at the ballot box and polling suggest we're in that territory but FFS he still can't say it was an organised party...

Utter sc**bag

Whatís disgusting is that none of the other Torys is publicly condemning his disgraceful behaviour. They are all circling the wagons and theyíll try to scapegoat a civil servant o take the blame. It reminds of the time all the Tyrone back room team, ex players and supporters circled the wagons and defended tiernan McCann for his ridiculous and disgraceful dive.

Or the Philip Jordan one, an even more high profile incident in an AI final which had a huge bearing on the outcome. The only difference is that Tyrone still defend those players to this day whereas whenever Boris Johnson becomes expendable the Tory backbenchers will throw him to the fleas.
Ffs lads. That is cringeworthy.

General discussion / Re: Running
« on: January 11, 2022, 08:55:16 PM »
Just started back running again and on first run during warm up mile I started getting Achilles pain. Not severe but restricting a bit. I know these sort of injuries can just happen but usually when increasing the load. This was literally my first run in months. So annoying when finally decided to get back into it.
I continued on and it was sore for first mile and a half or so then seemed to loosen up. But very sore next day so left it 3-4 days and tried another run. Same thing.
Again left it another decent break but same again. Just sore when starting and then really sore next day.
Really frustrating. And one any good ways of treating the Achilles that doesnít involve resting it for ages.

If itís your first run in months then it should have been a very slow 2 miler no more, your body isnít like your head thinking ah sure Iíll be grand!

Rest is best! Did a match yesterday, first since mid December, knee hurts like crazy, itís carrying all my Xmas weight! Not good
It was a real slow one. And pain started in the 2nd mile.  Havenít pushed at all since, everything been round 70% pace. Rested for 6 months and was hoping to try and build up but not looking likely now!!

Iím working from home for the last 2 years as well. Think it definitely has an impact. Really donít want to rest it now when only started again. But also wary I donít want to kick the can down the road either until it becomes worse and need longer recover. 😢

Belfast was OK, getting hyped due to it being about Branagh and the troubles, shot in black and white and having Judi Dench in it. Her accent was terrible too.

I thought the new matrix was good, far better than the second and third ones.

Can't remember much about There Will Be Blood Now, but remember thinking it was excellent when I watched it.
I was the same with the matrix films. 2&3 struggled. But this was better and some good throw backs.

Watched the Resident Evil reboot as well. Really liked it as was expecting the worst!!

General discussion / Re: 💩 DUP C*ntwatch - somewhat back on-topic!
« on: January 08, 2022, 02:25:36 PM »
I honestly am not sure I believe that no one wants a return to what we went through before. I do believe it is a small percentage, hopefully very small,  that do but I do believe there are people that do want to return to the troubles as that has been illustrated by some of the language that has been reduced with regard to threats and the protocol. I also do believer the dup want(Ed)a hard border. I also do believe several hardline republicans would want a return to violence too btw.

The problem with either ďsideĒ these days is that the extremists get the voice and then some people assume that everyone of that persuasion thinks the same. The reaction to the protocol hasnít been good. Arguably a hard border could have created something similar the other way mind you.

The problem Loyalists have now is the lack of a legitimate boogeyman. In the past they were able to point to  the IRA as a genuine issue. And some tried to spread this against the whole nationalist community (GAA being the IRA at play etc). They used to use the IRA as an excuse to demonise Irish culture. That excuse has been removed but they still discriminate against anything that promotes Irish Culture. So their motives are more obviously now and displays their obvious sectarian slant to ensure there is no inches given to Irish culture. There are many unionists who would be happy to embrace ( Or at least allow others to) the Irish identity that so many in NI aspire to. But this is not being catered to by unionist parties and is why Alliance has grown.

Yes, read that to, the info I found most interesting was 165 dead from covid only, all other deaths had accompanying morbidities.

Iím amazed at this stage you found that interesting tbh.

why?

Where you not aware Covid affects the vulnerable more than others?
