GAA Discussion / Re: Money, Dublin and the GAA
« on: March 04, 2021, 02:42:50 AM »
We've followed some bad Dublin sides in the 90s and 00s but we still went to the games. I remember losing a league final to cork in Pairc Ui Caoimh in the pissing rain when there were more dubs fans there than cork fans. It's a sad state of affairs when people will only go to games they know their team will win. That's so childish it's actually funny.

Yeah and i was at league games in Parnell Park.
Lucky you.

I wish all the dubs home League games were in parnell park. There were some cracking matches there over the years. I remember a Meath supporter throwing a cup of tea at Whelo and Whelo having to be held back from going up into stand after the person.
I remember the time James Nallen lost the rag with Whelo and followed him about 30 yards up the field to give him a good box on the lug. I didn't see what Whelo did to annoy Jimmy but he had floored one of the Mayo backs.
I was told by the guy next to me that it was a clumsy tackle rather than a dirty one but Nallen must have thought otherwise.

When was this? Doesn't sound like Jimmy Nallen and I'd say your memory is playing tricks.

I remember in the 2006 semi, Whelo taking McGarrity out of it with a box in the side of the face. McGarrity got replaced by Barry Big Bird. I believe Brady put Whelan on his arse when he came on.

The stuff on the last couple of pages of this thread is poisonous shite that no one wants to read.

Petty, repugnant flame wars waged by self obsessed, attention craving c***ts not only bore the shite out of the rest of us, but destroy the opportunity for others to develop a real discussion.

And this crap isn't just contained here, it's flung all over the board to the extent that practically every popular thread reeks of it.

If our new mod is going to let things like this fly then the board is as good as done. Moderating an internet forum is about cultivating an environment that encourages contributors to produce the content for which we're all here. The environment about this place at the minute is toxic and inhospitable.

+ as many as you like. The 2 have over 2600 posts this year alone!

third or fourth poor effort at a WUM in your first 30 odd posts.

It is better when there is some nuance in the windup - or if you build up some sort of online presence of non-WUM posts first so people believe you when you go for the windup

Watched the game and West Brom had chances to score another but Utd dominated a game but were left to rue chances they should have took.

Slab head at the end unlucky on 95 minute not to score.

Rashford needs a rest, abysmal today
That'll be an invitation for the Spectator to incite a racist pile on against him, like they need any invitation

So donít say he was abysmal?

I'm sure sid is well able to answer for himself, but I would imagine he is suggesting the Spectator article is coming because Rashford was abysmal, not because you wrote a post on gaaboard saying so

I haven't seen anyone taking glee at Klopp's current situation (not saying its not out there, just its a function of who you follow on social media I guess).

I have seen a lot of people referring to posts, but most of them seem to be referring to Liverpool fans.

I donít even think itís errors as such anymore. Heís slow coming out to meet players now I think. And positioning seems to have failed him at times.

He was always slow coming out and his positioning always poor. He showed again tonight his lack of bravery. I never rated him. Iím totally sick of it.

Why have you never mentioned this?

I see the Southampton player has had his Red card overturned after being sent off because of Martial diving.

It was a dive. Not surprising.

Will they be chalking off the goal? Would only be fair on Southampton

has this ever happened?

3 episodes into the first season of Marcella. Seems decent enough so far.
Meanwhile those of us who can access Your Honor can bask in the drama excellence of Bryan Cranston and  the understated menace of Omar Little.

Omar Little?

Indeed. Don't think he's in it though. Clay Davis is for sure.

Nah, I think I realise now who he meant - Danavian Lewis played by Martin Bats Bradford

The Clay Davis actor plays the exact same character in Your Honor!

Surely if Lingard can get a bit of form and confidence hed be a better squad player than Dan James.

easier said than done. Has looked devoid of form/confidence for a couple of years now (apart from brief individual games). The move may well be the trigger for a return to form, I sincerely hope so.

I suppose the reason he was moved on instead of James would be the difference in sale values combined with wages. The club may feel the extra being paid for Lingard over James isn't worth paying for compared to the difference in output of both players.
Interesting to see if Diallo gets any game time during the next few months

Who is more past their best Mourinho or Bale?

Jesus but the defending was dire. Loris for the 2nd. Just palm it round the post man. And then the 3rd one, just boot it. Awful.

Mourinho placing his trust in defenders such as Eric Dier is bizarre. Liverpool have a number of midfielders that are better at centre back than him.

doubt Liverpool would have given Mourinho any of their players to play against them

Staircase is fine but it's not entertainment, there is no climax last episode, it's procedural and a tad biased towards the husband's innocence. It was very unfortunate for the husband's that it came to pass that his first wife died in a similar manner. What are the odds of that happening?

spoiler alert, much?
Not much if any, much less  a spoiler than saying Perry Mason got his client off or Apollo 13 did make it back or watch out for HAL.
 
The documentary is 15 years old and the story goes through many twists and turns after the timeline of the info I revealed.
Imo it's very good but it has to be disclosed that the documentary makers are  firmly in bed with the defense.
There was a shabbily made BBC podcast which firmly jumped into bed with the prosecution.

the specific detail you revealed was the biggest twist/reveal/wow moment in the entire series! It doesn't matter how old it is. This is a recommendations thread. Recommendations for people who haven't seen the feckin thing!
