Watched Searching last night, very quirky format. A decent 7/10

It looks good, definitely on the hit list.

I thought Ozark 2 was miles better than 1.  Going through Line of Duty since Wednesday, really good.  Down to last two episodes.

It could be that McGregors lifestyle is catching up with him. Once he has lost that edge and hunger he has lost something intangible as a UFC fighter at the elite level. His primary motivation appears to be money and he already has enough of that.

Absolute nonsense.

McGregor is a striker, he fought maybe the best wrestler in the history of the UFC. There was no lack of heart or effort from him but I doubt you even watched fight. Youd rather feign concern on a thread.

But McGregor didn't even win the stand up last night, khabib knocked him down and everything

McGregor was too focused on Khabib gping for take downs, that itself led to him being more cautious on his feet and staying out of his normal attacking range more often than normal.

Mayorga, 34, who has worked as a model and school teacher in her hometown of Las Vegas, did not attend the news conference. Stovall said Mayorga considered suicide and abused alcohol after the alleged rape from which suffers PTSD and she is unavailable to the media because of her emotional state.

Stovall also said Mayorga suffers from a learning disability, but said he was unsure whether a recent psychiatric exam found the disability played a role in the alleged rape. Stovall noted that Mayorga had worked hard to overcome the learning disability and earned a degree in journalism from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

She's done well considering the learning difficulty she has

Lots of people with learning disabilities have a degree. Why wouldn't they?

Considering shes been suffering with PTSD on top also I think its been a huge accomplishment

What is her learning disability though?

On this, just gauging general opinion,

What are people thoughts on those that accept 'payoffs', then proceed down the criminal path some years later?

Sympathetic? Had their money and blew it so they lose their 'right' to justice?

You have to lose a bit of sympathy for the alleged victim due to the fact that on the surface it diminishes her credibility; she took a payoff, lived her life and is coming back for more.  I did see that the LV police have reopened the investigation too though.

Fury and Wilder would do well to tone down the ridiculous McGregor Mayweather style nonsense in their press conferences. Its all a bit embarrassing and is beginning to put me off actually bothering to watch the fight.

At least McGregor usually means it.  Fury and Wilder are actually friendly enough off camera but are putting on the act just for the hype.

Great to see Rory flying the flag for loyal Ulster. The Ryder Cup is a con. Golf is primarily a solo sport the chest beating and roaring from Europe in particular is gut wrenchingly nauseating, the yanks aren't far behind but at least the represent a country. IMO of course.

Agreed. Cringe fest.

She seems very credible. Takes the money, signs an agreement yet subsequently breaks it.

She seems perfectly credible to noon spanners. The least you could do is read the article. If you had, you'd realised that part of their claim is Ronaldo had breached the settlement.

Noon spanners?

You would think that with a man of his standing there would be plenty of willing women.

So why did he choose one that wasn't?

Consent can be removed at any point. Such a weird way to look at it as usual.

Can it be obtained again after being removed?

Could Barcelona afford him?  His wages would also be crazy and then the agent was obviously need paid a large chunk too.  Barca have also a 600 million stadium refurb to sort too.

I could laugh at the slabbering about him not paying tax when every one of us would play the system and use the best accountants available to avoid paying tax if we were in his position.

Joshua sold a bit of weed when he was younger.  His behaviour since has been brilliant, both inside and outside the ring.  He is the perfect role model.  Doesn't get involved in any of the trash talk, just gets the job done.  I'm a McGregor fan but you can hardly equate Joshua and McGregor, Joshua is on a different level.
