Free in for a push, free out for another push. Donít see the issue.
Never said there was an issue

I was replying to Gerry Fitt, not you Dougie.
Very good

So it's all just about a flower! I think those years working in the shipyard have turned you into an apologist for all things British.

I donít know exactly what point youíre making to be honest. Are you suggesting that Frank chose to wear one or was forced to wear one? Regardless Iím not sure Iíd want to be drawing any comparisons between Frank, whoís a pretty sound guy, and Roy Keane who I donít actually know but who seems to be a bully and a pretty nasty piece of work

Now weíll see if Frank Mitchel is on the Board

I doubt very much Frank is forced, heís happy enough to wear it, as he does every year.

I worked in the shipyard and they had poppies on all year and ten extra ones on during September October and November. I never felt intimidated pressured or bullied.

I respect people wearing them for the right reasons but reserve the right not to wear one

I doubt Frank is forced , but there has become a culture of expectation of wearing a poppy in various visibly prominent organisations which demeans the valid principle behind the poppy. The treatment of McClean and the failure of the PFA , FA And other prominent British organisations to support his right to choose , and/or condemn the racist abuse he receives,  is a serious indictment of those organisations who rightly champion equality and respect in all other cases. Not only is it appalling but itís really bizarre - how do they not realise the hypocrisy of their silence?

So is it bullying or does he accept that by wearing a poppy heís wearing it for the right reasons. Frank seems like an intelligent guy.

As for the FA

McClean himself would wear a poppy for the right reasons.

Frankís a great lad , heíll make his own decisions and Iíll respect him for it, but the treatment of mcclean is blatantly racist and this racism is the single most important aspect of this poppy debate and shouldnít be minimised. Whatís that phrase ďevil will triumph only when good men say nothingĒ . Stand up to racism!
Iím not disputing the fact that Frankís a good lad but I donít ever remember him wearing a poppy before he joined UTV so Iíd be interested to know why he had a change of heart

I hate it. The problem in football wasnít borderline offsides or dodgy handball penalties, as most managers would have agreed they tend to even themselves out over a season, the main problem was cheating with players diving in the penalty box and in my opinion thatís all VAR should be used for. There was 6 minutes added time in the Spurs match yesterday caused by prolonged VAR deliberations

As with other streaming devices is Now TV about 90 seconds behind the live action?

nothing worse than watching a match you're interersted in and your phone is pinging you that there was a goal and now youre just sitting wiating to see it

eh, turn off your phone?
Difficult to do if youíre watching on your phone

Re Upper Bann:Iíd be shocked if Carla Lockhart does win the DUP nomination. Sheís hard working and popular in the area. I assume UUP will run Doug Beattie

Re North Down, if Greens and UUP step aside and Alliance put up Stephen Farray he could give DUP a good run for their money, otherwise itís great news for Paul Girvan because once Alex Easton gets elected heíll then take the title of the dimmest MP in Westminster

Mannus and Cliftonville both deserve to be criticised.

James McClean is a separate issue.

Just stand for the anthem like a normal human being. Sport is full of athletes standing in respect of other anthems why make a big deal of it??

How?! He did literally the exact same thing as Mannus.
I wasnít aware of the West Brom/Canada:GSTQ incident. I can now confirm that in my opinion he was as big a cnut as Mannus for doing it. Cliftonville thing is different GSTQ shouldnít be played before events in NI just like itís not played in Scotland or Wales
