There are teenagers sitting in nice revolving chairs in a base in Chester, and other places across the UK, who have killed immeasurably more people than this deluded young lady.

But sure they only pushing a wee button on a joystick when the crosshairs zoom in.

Its not like they are out planting bombs that might kill somebody [thats invaded THEIR country], and it's only ragheads that they are killing and civilians shouldn't have been there anyway. So no big deal.

What about all those soldiers from England who headed off to Syria and Iraq and murdered all around them, should they be allowed to return to the UK?

That was extremely boring, I imagine there will be a rash of changes to the playing rules for next season.

The British still think they can exercise gunboat diplomacy to enforce their view on the wider world.

You know with all the talk of rules the highlights and games I saw over the weekend confirmend what I've always thought. If we can't enforce the rules about the basics of the game then we've no business tinkering with other rules. Reape's goal for Mayo - took at least a dozen steps before playing the ball, turning and shooting. None of the commentators on Eir said a word during the game or during the analysis. Neither did Gooch or Mr Rules himself on RTE last night. Everyone just accepts it now.

The handpass is another one. I would say that 30-40% (and perhaps more) of handpasses are fouls. Lads are just throwing the ball.

Proper enforcement of these two rules would change the game for the better in my view.

Its only people on here who think the league is a better competition than the championship  ;)

agree on both counts. I took a bit of stick on my gaa whatsapp group on saturday night about this. I called it straight away but then I got all the "anti Mayo" accusations. It was blatent and obvious and I couldn't believe that there was no comment (for the record i made it 10 steps :-)) Monaghan's 2nd goal yesterday was dodgy as well but again not a word.
Is there something dodgy about Shane Carey's goal? If there is, it's very marginal. The best angle is from behind the goal
I was down that end and it seemed like a bit of a push rather than a palm. No worse than the push off that Scully gave for his goal and it would have been harsh to disallow either or both
In real time it's so marginal, it's not worth the bother of a remark, not that I'm a fan of the slapped/palm push goal.
Cooper, before he flattened Carey (penalty?), had a birds eye view and didn't complain.
The Dubs couldn't complain about a palmed goal as they score so many of them themselves

Jim Gavin's quotes about the new rules and this year's league were interesting and he clearly has no interest in incorporating the new rules into training as in his words sure they only there for 6 more games, what's the point.

Should make the league interesting this year for everyone else as it looks as though Gavin is only focusing on championship this year

As a matter of how many other fouls in those 20 minutes?

297... Joe McQuillan was reffing.

Justifying this hike for 'club development' is laughable when the GAA are going to give Connacht over 1.5 million to develop an indoor pitch, which isn't needed in Ireland's least populated province

True the money would be much better spent in a populated area like Ruislip!
better spent on all weather surfaces in each county so county teams can train and club and school games can always go ahead

Whats an all weather surface?

Surely if Ireland was given special status to trade freely with both Uk and EU, since the Brits don't want NI to have it, that would solve all the border issues. Can't understand why Leo and Co haven't been pushing for this from Day1.

Is there any scenario or outworking of such that won't weaken the DUP from the position they were in prior to the referendum?

No Brexit/Soft Brexit/Hard Brexit/Deal with Backstop/Deal without Backstop/Hard Border/Soft Border/Any degree of fudge between any of these scenarios, are all going to make the DUP look like fools for one reason or another as far as I can see.

I'd say your knowledge of "The South" is fairly limited.
That actually cuts both ways many from the south do not understand nationalists in the North, or their motivations. They criticise without the benefit of the experience many nationalists had of the state in which they grew up. Prime example are those FF Republicans sniping at SF for not swearing an oath to the Queen, they don't get that people voted SF on that basis. I would not swear an oath to the Queen why would I expect my MP to do so? There are other examples as well.
Mark Durkan never swore an oath of allegiance to the Queen
SF defences of abstentionism are bollocks

you sure?

He swore his affirmation for the Queen and the world didn't cave in??

Crazy . . .

Well he won't have to swear it any time again in the future if that gives you a clue about the consequences.

Can anyone explain how 2 teams from the same group end up playing each other in the semifinal?

The draw was made in advance, winner of A v Winner of B and winner of C v Best runner up.

As Gerry Donnelly would say... even the McKenna's would think that was daft.
