I think you'd get Dalton for a 3rd rounder. It would be worth asking.

Mariota holds the ball too long. He was far more dynamic at Oregon, so maybe it is a scheme thing, but he wouldn't inspire me.

Something tells me you could get Carr from the Raiders for a decent package at te end of the season....not sure Gruden is 100% in on him

A "simple majority" vote in Stormont every 4 years... since when has that been a feature of government here?

Simple politics have been the ONLY politics for us and it stops themmuns

Yet another Twitter statement release from the DUP.

This is their new form of media since they have lost the ability to move their mouths. Limited tv and radio appearances, they now communicate predominantly through twitter.

Someone should tell them there are gay folks, catholics and Irish people using twitter...they'll be off it quick enough

So my point on attitude is that I can't understand that some people can't see that "we" have to go to what feels like uncomfortable places to promote balance and diversity, so far even as having different faces in soccer and rugby presenting. No, I don't think it should be tokenism, but a desire for differences in opinion and thought is not a bad thing, and I'm sure the analysts in question have some higher experience of the games than most of us. Maybe the specific female analysts who have obviously ground gears were the wrong analysts, not the wrong gender.

You mention athletics - add golf to that, with Sarah, Henni, Laura Davies etc all part of the furniture in golf broadcasting. Or tennis, some great analysts there too.

The issue being in this PC world, positive discrimination is now totally acceptable especially on television irrespective how useless the individual is.

How did Des Cahill get the Sunday Game gig then...he's terrible..?

I wonder, if both the Shipyard and Wrightbus are saved, will those workers who previously contributed to the religious intolerance in both have a Damscence conversion and appreciate the support that has been given from both sides of the community in the fight to keep the two places afloat?

Is it just me or is the gap between decent people and scumbags in today's society more wide than ever before? There seems to be very little in between.

The 5 main criteria for analysts should be:

1. Do you understand the game itself and it's nuances? You don't need to have played at a high level , however some form of management, coaching or playing for fun experience would certainly be beneficial
2. Do you understand the rules of the game? Many pundits have no clue; witness the cry of 'black card' for every foul under the sun.
3. Can you clearly and simply communicate what you are saying to the audience?
4. Can you bring a level of insight into proceedings, showing the audience something they otherwise would have missed or not understood? The old "that's a bad miss" or "they need to tighten up in defence" is cowdung imho - I can hear that from the village idiots in the stands every week.
5. Can you be objective when needed, not pushing a side agenda, but still remain (and look) passionate about the game?

If you can satisfy even 4 of the above then I'd be happy to listen / watch - no matter who it is doing the analysis.
