I don't think the Dubs only pick humans.

Davy needs to go live on Skellig Michil with Luke Skywalker for a few decades for the good of himself and the game.

I was at the killing fields in Cambodia a few years ago, Khmer Rouge killed people by hacking their heads off with the thick toothed ends of palm leaves, this saved on the cost of bullets. It's a despicable act irrespective of the tools used. It seems to me as a matter of splitting hairs as how it was carried out, in instances such as these it is more important is establishing the fact that it happened, by whom and for what purpose. 

I don't know or care about Sean Spicer but this "gaffe" isn't interesting or newsworthy. Far too much time and energy is wasted on worrying what people say, might have said or could be interpreted as to have meant. It's nothing more than a means of obfuscation.

I'd probably have Ollie Murphy or Tommy Dowd ahead of Giles if we're talking scoring forwards. Trevor was more versatile than them but he wasn't putting up massive scores or kicking from tight angles or scoring improbable goals. Not to diminish his contributions to our success I believe we'd have won nothing without him.

How long ago were Westmeath in Division 1? Laois were in Division 1 five years ago and now they've dropped into Division 4. It's strange to see teams go into free fall like that. Armagh could be next but it's unlikely.

Division 2 next year:


It will be tough division to get out of again. Cavan and Roscommon will be looking to rebound. Cork will be looking to get back on track, Clare and Tipp will be looking to keep improving. Louth are improving but how far can they go. They won't be easy beat. Down could go either way. We'll probably be in the promotion shake up but we'll probably drop a few points along the way and it'll be a close call again.

I thought Fermanagh would give us a tough game given what was at stake for them and following their win over Clare I thought they were on an upward curve. However today they had nothing to offer and completely wilted once we got in front. We racked up a big score but it isn't worth reading much into it.

The big shame of it was losing Alan Forde to a ligament injury. Gone for the year I'm told.

This team are improving but it feels like we weren't ready to go up. The poor starts against Kildare and Cork and the abysmal display against Down have cost us promotion. If we do sneak into number 2 spot so be it but I don't think it's a major problem if we don't. It would be good to go up following a dominant performance in all games if we can manage that.

There are still quite a few positions where we need to improve if we're to be a permanent fixture in division 1.

I'm not sure the comebacks against Galway or Cork would have happened under Mick O'Dowd so there is a slight improvement in attitude and will to win. There is still a lot to improve on but it's going in the right direction for now. With Mickey Newman still to come back we might have a more formidable attack but for now Donal Lenihan seems really up to the task which we only got glimpses of before. Bryan McMahon has similar potential too if he can find a way to bring it up a level.

I imagine his will might only have a similar two words as well.

Every artist is entitled to one aberration.. Chuck Berry's was 'My Ding-a-ling'  Dreadful but otherwise he was superb.

That wasn't his only aberration if we're talking about him as a person too. Great musician and made rock and roll what it is today but a pretty terrible character by most accounts.

Our winning run? One in a row?

I'd go with

Meath Cork draw
Clare beat Fermanagh
Galway beat Derry.

Good to see.

While I understand the GAA is good for Irish abroad to keep in touch with their culture I'd be opposed to the idea of imposing it on a team made up of non-Irish in their own country. The GAA model could be adapted by them to promote their own traditions identity and culture if they so wish (though we could not fund them in that pursuit). It would be particularly useful for a place like Galicia where they have their own language and practices that are a bit different from the other regions of Spain.

I enjoyed it last year but this years wasn't so great. Still Shane did well though was let away with a few technical fouls. It was actually more interesting just to see the level of training that glenswilly were doing nowadays with all the weights at 6am and football at night.

Pro teams are never going to let some lad show up and get among their top players. Better off following one of our young lads trying out at Aussie rules.

Is pottering about the same as futtering about?

Not the same but there's a fine line between the two that's easily crossed.
