Ok, I'll bite, you don't view Canavan, Mc Guigan, Canavagh, Tohill, Scullion, Linden, Murphy, Mc Conville, Mc Hugh as natural footballers?

They MIGHT have been good footballers but it is impossible to tell when they are sacrificed to the system.

Michael Murphy is a great player but he has ended up playing corner back at times ffs. It is ridiculous.

You lads will be thanking us in the years to come because we have , essentially, saved football again. By beating the
system at it's most negative we have now forced Ulster "tae think again" as the song goes. You will have to do more than simply trying to stop the other team playing.

Of course, Ulster may respond by going even more negative. Not sure how that is possible but if anyone can find a more negative way it is Ulster  ::) Hopefully that won't happen  as it will be a tragedy for any decent footballers in the province.

What systems did you disapprove off in the 90s??

The early 90's was more about the very poor standard rather than systems as such. The likes of Brolly , for example, was completely overrated on the basis of a soft All-Ireland.

the board has officially been taken over with the inane trollish rants of gobeens like Sheehy. Polluted and pretty much not worth it. Pity

Hard to believe but they are everywhere, we had a prominent official in Derry Gerard O'Kane, an ex County Board Chairman who only recently went on to the pitch after a championship match and allegedly started getting involved in a bully bat, he completely lost the run of himself, couldn't be restrained, allegedly he has received a six month suspension.

The one man Derry PR machine continues una'bat'ed

Neither of whom can play. I think Captain at the Ryder Cup must be the most overhyped position of all time.
There's no bigger responsibility than captaining your continent in a golf game.

McGinley is not up to the job - he's happy to just be in the job, and he's left out a supreme match player in Luke Donald for a local lad, in an effort to curry favour with the Scots. That's weak captaincy. Sandy Lyle or Monty should be leading us.

Watson's presence on the other hand will galvanise the Yanks. He's the only US captain to win in Europe in the last three decades. He'll do it again and he'll lead like FDR.

This has to go down as one of the biggest facepalm predictions on the board in a while...

 ;D ;D ;D

I'd suggest/hope that sidney was extracting the urine, this is a glorified All Star Weekend which Sky in their usual understated way are trying to make into something it's not.

Had to laugh at Mrs Doubtfire harrumphing about the 'hangers on' on the course, that's the whole point, weekend jolly for golfers, friends and family.
Paid for by the Ole Ole crowd.

but it is something to a hell of a lot of folk. I wouldnt know one end of a golf stick from the other, but it was the big talk from most folk I spoke to over the weekend

ye lot sound like that bitter man mc kenna

Kavanagh was out of order publishing McKenna's phone number.

Mc Kenna is out of order constantly slating everyone.

Heres the left hook that Conor dished out before the knock out, this did the damage, shameful stuff as usual from the plastic paddys knocking our own

No need to be so precious.  I support any and all representing the country, but that finish has to be questioned.

(And showing a left handed jab with yer man looking pretty unfazed and still light on his feet isn't much proof)

Watching the recaps during the rounds , you'd swear Smith did an Audley on it and never threw a punch. Crazy stuff

Paul Smith,  the latest fighter to experience a home town score card in Germany. Pro boxing decisions in a Germany are becoming a farce. The fight was close, there's no doubting that, but that was ridiculous

Like in the old school days when picking teams for a match, yer picking next. You've Donaghy,  young McHugh and Connolly to pick from to bolster your team. Fairly easy choice in fairness surely?

My first pick would be Gooch, that doesn't mean I think he deserves an All Star.

I didn't have the Gooch in my list

was only trying to help

One of the greatest pleasures of the last few days has been sitting back and reading the whining from (some of) the Nordies.

Its like finishing a wonderful meal and the host keeps coming back and shoving dessert in front of you !

I'm fit to burst at this stage lads  ;D

Has there been many Nordies slagging Kerry?? Even Donegal are giving them the plaudits. There's more Dubs giving out about ye!

 ???

Sure I was just quoting the language the man himself used!

lets get him!

Walsh is a top player and will benefit Kerry's championship next year big time. Is he still rocking the Drago do?

I've had a Moto G and while on holiday earlier in the summer I was happy with the battery life which with a bit of care was lasting all day while checking maps, gaaboard etc. My perception is that the battery life is now declining a tad after 8 months. Not sure about the new version which has bigger screen which presumably uses more juice.

They also have a dual sim version, which could be very handy, e.g. get a northern and southern sim or have one for data and one for calls, or one for calls to the wife and one for the girlfriend.
