Itís always fun to read Bigfooty whenever this is on. They seem to hate/love the game depending on the score line.

Itís also a chance to learn another language. Ya bunch a flogs/sooks etc.

Didnít get to see it but was there much in the way of tackling and physicality. How did our lads hold up on that regard. The few highlights I saw looked just like a normal Gaelic match.

The way weíre losing lads at the minute we might be fielding our strongest team in the OíByrne Cup.

Harry Rooney isnít returning
Conor Nash is off to AFL
Ronan Jones is gone to USA
RuairŪ ” Coileann gone to USA
Paddy O'Rourke retired.

We didnít have Harry last year but there are 4 first team players from 2016 and 2017 that wonít have going forward while Nash was a great talent but a long shot for us to keep him from AFL or pro rugby.

Yeah lack of talent wouldn't help my case either but I did end up on the warwickshire bench once for one game as there was a free seat on the bus.

I don't see it stack up that amateurism works against working class people exclusively or mostly. It works against anyone with any serious commitments including family. In my own profession which makes huge demands on your time including working overtime often, expects you to travel across the country, I simply couldn't play at county level and I'm probably in a lower middle-class wage bracket. Plus family commitments it's impossible.

Is ladies AFL any different to the mens?

It will be interesting to see how she adapts at 34 years old its a tough task but the Aussies are obviously happy to go with her.

ISIS are claiming this one but no links have yet been found between the attacker and the group.

The no vote abstaining hasn't helped the situation at all leading up to this as well. As for the constitution they've had no problem changing it on Merkels request so it's not that precious when it suits them.

That was my point. He should have done it years ago. He could have thrown those who were proud Catalans but not supporters of independence a few bones to respect their autonomy and identity and that would have quenched any fires.

I'm in Spain at the moment though a long way from Catalunya. But my wife is from Girona and as long as I've known her the Catalan independence movement went from a small fringe to what it is today because of ham fisted actions coming out of Madrid particularly when Rajoy got into power. If they let them have a referendum years ago it would have lost like in Scotland and none of this would have happened. Also giving a few small gestures to the autonomy of Catalunya would have gone a long way but it seems that's beyond PP.

So many Catalans I know went from not wanting independence to slowly going for it and events this week have increased that flow dramatically. Independent Catalunya is guaranteed at this stage. Rajoy is the best thing to happen to the independence movement it couldn't have happened without him and to be honest they should build a monument to him in Placa de CataluŮa after this.

We've seen it before where teams look invincible but suddenly with a few retirements they just aren't the same after. What happens to this Dublin team when Cluxton retires. I know they'll still be talented but take away a few of the key players, in those really tight games will they be able to stay composed. They'll probably still be competitive for the foreseeable future but I think someone is going to surprise them when they're coming off their peak.

They keep winning AIs. When talking about sudden retirements, you're focusing on the wrong AI finalist..

I'm not saying Cluxton or anyone on that team is retiring this year but they will eventually and also you have to remember that nothing can take away a teams hunger for success than success itself. It might not happen to this team but it might happen to the coming generation. We experienced this in Meath where we as a county lost the hunger for it in the nineties and we collectively took our eye off the ball. Within a decade a load of teams had over taken us and we've never been the same since. The next generation of Dubs might not have the bitter taste of defeat in their mouths as much as the current lads had growing up.

I think Mayo left that one behind. That goal chance that was kicked straight at Cluxton and the stupid sending off swung it back in Dublins favour. It's those kind of things that would win it for them. I think they set out a good template for how you beat Dublin but you have to get all the small things right.

Forget splitting Dublin it's time to amalgamate the rest of the country.

Yeah but if they're not getting a return on it they wouldn't do it.

So as I asked last year, are the GAA seeing a new audiences coming out of the Sky deal as was the spin coming out of headquarters at the time?
