Tyrone should be banned from live tv. They are highly effective but destroy the game as a spectacle. Tyrone people won't care but it is bad for football in long run IMHO. Last week for example it was incredible how many left straight after the first match before the second even started . In years gone by they would have stayed to at least half time.
Surely its Roscommon you should be slating.

 Kane has had a pretty poor world cup to be honest and yet will end up with the golden boot

Any ideas on where you can park near the Giants Causeway if you are not looking to use the visitors centre?

Most fellas in gyms are on some sort of steroid or pro-hormone, plus firing away at up to 10 tablets (fat burners) a day

Watched Sicario last night, exceptional film , great performances from Blunt, Broliin and Del Torro, sequel out  in cinema at the minute as well
Really? I thought it was average. I thought the director strangely put Blunt at the centre of the film but then made her character largely weak. The performances were good but it didn't leave a lasting impression on me, at least not a positive one.

Same here. Very forgettable film.

 Happy enough to get Roscommon first. Good to have a handy game before the real stuff starts.

Until the road racing community starts turning on itself, then outsiders have no right to call upon it to be banned. Itís got nothing to do with with you. Stay out of it.

What a load of complete and utter w**k.

Iím guessing you canít explain why. 

Every competitor in road racing is a willing adult. Itís the inherent risk that attracts these riders, and if they couldnít get it through organised races, theyíd get it elsewhere. The crowds are generally quite small and tend to be born into it, so itís not some form of Hunger Games mass entertainment.

But what it interests me more about the ďit must be bannedĒ brigade is learning just where thy will draw the line on what leisure pursuits are acceptable. Where is your tipping point for unacceptable levels of deaths in pursuit of leisure?

Will rallying be next? What about base jumping, or ski jumping? Deep sea diving, or deep cave diving?
Rock climbing? Boxing?

The road racing community only put themselves in danger through their activities. Itís therefore none of my business, and I say let them at it.
Fire marathons onto your list too. Were there not fatalities at the London and Belfast ones this year too?

Don't see the issue with anyone following England.  Yes, their fans and media go on abit but if it was NI or ROI the same thing would happen!  Seem to remember a few people thinking that ROI would have near won the World Cup had they beat Spain in 2002!

Well said. People giving off about Englands wins so far etc but the country goes mad if Ireland beat anybody.

 Harry Kane isn't the player for England that he is for Spurs.

Watched Cobra Kai the other week, it was brilliant.  Finished season 2 of Westworld, pretty poor to be honest.

Glad to see Hyland beat after he got that scandalous decision against Ormond.

Why was Darragh Canavan not on panel?

I believe he had the decision to stay off it this year as he was playing too much football. Hopefully we see him out next year.

I actually think there's something to do with birthdays and when the players turn 18 might be the reason. Is there not a rule for this or something?

Was originally thinking something like that myself, but surely there isn't a restriction on players playing county because they are too old for u-17 and too young for u-20?

Lots of complaints about Martial and Rashford not getting enough playing time. Can any of you tell what big club would have Martial and Rashford as their main men?

Rashford has played enough for his age, but Martial was flying until January and Sanchez was preferred over him yet had 20 terrible games in a row.  Martial gets the odd sub appearance and if he didn't set the world alight he was publicly criticized and benched for 4/5 games.  Double standards.  Martial and Rashford are strikers at the end of the day and don't get a look in in their preferred position.  We are judging them in positions that aren't their own.

He was never going to get the fight anyway, everyone and their dog knew it would be GGG v Alvarez in September, sure the flipping suspension was even tailored to allow it to happen in line with the Mexican Independence Day celebrations.
