Economy aside. I still don't understand why people would want to sit in a confined space bar or restaurant umasked with a crowd for a prolonged period during a pandemic.

ďMental healthĒ or something probably

They love playing the mental health card.

They have a valid point in fairness.

Must be very hard for them to be in a business where the margins are fine enough as is, in a labour of love and half of them aren't getting what they should be getting on time from what I know. Was only a matter of time before some businesses started to strike back.

Iím talking about them going on and on and playing the mental card regarding their customers. I would suggest they donít give two hoots about their customers mental health.

Maybe, you could well be right, but you put people in that position financially. Sooner or later there was going to be unrest.

Absolutely and people and businesses who are forced to close have to be frustrated and annoyed to say the least.

Itís just the whole mental health thing they flippantly use to try and make a point that annoys me.

The mental health card is always the go to weapon

Oliver Holt pointed out on Twitter that people have no issue with a goal not been given because 5mm if the ball has not crossed the line so how can they have issue with you been 5mm offside. Interesting view

The issue is itís totally arbitrary in what it decides to ďlookĒ at, thatís my problem with it.

I thought earlier in the year Limerick were unbeatable but I do think Waterford are as well equipped as anyone to beat them, they are rightly warm favourites though

I know itís incredibly complex for governments but Iím sorry there is only so much they can do, if people are gonna be c***ts and go about in their droves, boozing, mixing, not wearing a mask etc what can you do ? The risks are well known at this stage

One word - Tazer.

I would have went for something stronger I think in the Holylands the other night. How many warnings do these individuals need?

Get on like that and then all head home and spread it around their families just in time for Christmas.

In no way sticking up for the students here, but people aren't stupid either. The numbers that are doing the rounds in schools are massive. Over 1k cases now and this number is largely supressed (unsurprisingly).

It's allowed to spread freely from schools. Seriously, what are we doing? Are other countries ignoring school transmission in their figures and we in the North are idiots? Our numbers here do not make sense whatsoever. Are we accepting the cost of free transmission in order to keep schools open? If we can close down basically everything today for the sake of the country, could we not have pulled the plug on the schools for that two weeks too?

There is a reason the public health site is so difficult to navigate with regards to this area I feel.

The problem in the schools is the number of pupils have to self isolate

To be honest, and I could be wrong on this, but I wouldnít be too sure Harte is a mercenary at all. Also reading this thread I would expect Damien Cassidy and those mcnulty boys to be driving ferraris based on what I read but I am not sure on the accuracy on the money managers are being paid at all!

Iím certain Harte is

Iím certain you are wrong.

Just did it for the love of it ?

Must be loving the the buzz of taking teams...

After all those years youíd like the odd season to chill out, be more money at punditry surely? Sky, BBC

Would doubt it. Those gigs are a fee per show, Harte was on a significant salary in Tyrone

Antrim missed a trick there. Could have swayed him with the new Casement and the sleeping giant etc etc.

I said that we should approach him kinda joking in the Antrim thread, we would have been a more attractive proposition than Louth. Ahhh sure itís done now, fair play to Louth

No way Antrim could afford Harte

Rumours of schools closing early. So lockdown for 2 weeks and then when thatís over, close the schools? So the children that are not in school can run about the shopping centres with their mates.

To placate the teachers and their unions I assume

When we were holding our own nicely for large spells a few weeks ago against Cavan who would have guessed they would be crowned Ulster champions. That is at least a crumb of encourage for the new management team, and its only fair and right to say that the system Lenny used against them was as effective as any.

Ah come on
