Finished Ozark 2. Dropped big time on quality and too predictable.

Agree with this, finished strongly enough though to keep me interested for S3.

Are there any separate charges being brought against Callinan & Taylor?  What they did to Maurice McCabe is absolutely shocking!

There definitely should be, an absolute disgrace!

Why not? Your losing nothing by having it as early as possible and if nothing else, can allow fans to book holidays safe in the knowledge they wont miss a game, or club players to book weekends away or weddings knowing that they won't have league games clashing with when the county is playing

It's October ffs  ::)

Why some serious worrying attitudes on this thread.

Once you take a cent of government funding you should not be allowed discriminate against another sporting organisation.

What a  load of absolute horse shite

Please explain why?

As always it's very to live by your moral, values and ethics than it is to write about them.

JP is an interesting one, well know for avoiding direct tax but does he do enough indirectly, his foundation has supported close to €40m in community projects around Limerick.

He has over 100 horses in training in Ireland, the average training fee is €15000 per year. Another €15m that goes towards the economy indirectly per year, that doesn't include winnings of which a percentage goes to trainer, jockey and yard staff. He spends millions buying and selling horses, helping to pay and support the industry around that also.

His contributions to Limerick GAA, Munster Rugby and other sports around Limerick run into the millions.

I am sure there is other philanthropy going on in the backgorund oblivious to us all.

He's very much a global business man who makes his money on the global market, the US and the UK are probably much more entitled to those taxes than Ireland. He just epitomises the good and the bad about capitalism but to me he still has a sense of responsibility to his community.
Sure that's straight of the 1920s robber barons' handbook.

The "libertarian" "tax is theft" nonsense, that essential services should be at the mercy of the charity of the rich rather than be funded by a proper redistributive tax system.

I would have hoped that people had moved beyond this simplistic nonsense. It's the kind of thing you expect to hear from anti-"gub'mint" nut jobs in the US.

He doesn't make his money in Ireland, so why the f**k should we be entitled to his taxes. Typical socialist bolloxology, as long as they have more money than me they should pay more taxes no wonder socialism as an ideology doesn't work.

As the club are run by business men instead of football men i can't see JM sacked until United mathematically they can't reach the top 4. In current form probably looking at March for that to happen.

The next manager then has a big clear out on his hands. A squad full of poor signings many of which left over from Moyes and LVG time. When you have Fellaini as a regular starter and is given a role to protect the nervous lindelof you really know how deep rooted the problems are for United at the moment.
Mourinho has bought:
Pogba,Lukaku, Matic, Fred, Mkhitaryan, Sanchez,Lindeloff, Bailley and Dalot,
so he cant really complain that its not his team.
If the players aren't good enough, he has to take the blame.

I think Pogba,Sanchez was Ed Woodward signings to sell jerseys.

So does Ed make Mourinho play them too??
The whole selling jerseys stuff is a load of b*llocks anyways. Adidas pay a huge fee, around £70m to manufacture United's kit.
That figure doesn't change if a few thousand Chileans decide to buy a kit and get Sanchez on the back of it.

I thought the “buying players to sell jerseys” myth had been well enough debunked at this stage ffs

Indeed.

€ for € I can guarantee Dublin spend more on their backroom team than every other county in Ireland. It's where money actually has an affect, so to equate " I can guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team" is just disingenuous bollix.

Headline hunting now Dinny (Ewan)

I actually don't know where… If you talk about expenses we get the same as everyone else, and probably less because we don't have to travel that far. I don't see where the money is going, for me. And I guarantee you if you went into any county set-up the resources are probably very similar. You'll have a strength and conditioning coach, a nutritionist, a psychologist, a medical team, a tactical team.

"Just go through Stephen Cluxton's speech and ask other county teams have they got that? Because they have. There is very little difference.
 


He's right, of the top teams anyway.

No once you exclude travel expenses are Dublin spending more than every other county, so he's not right of the top teams!

I wonder will Joe bring up the incidents in Derry over the past couple of weekends?

Or Ewan over the incidents in Kildare?
