Where else could I hear that Casement Park in Belfast was an answer on University Challenge?

What was the question?

Where is the longest grass in Ireland?

Lads, like everything in life, don't take it too serious.
Given my personal situation you'll forgive me if I take some things quite seriously

I couldn't care less what nonsense that poster posts on a thread about Celtic, or on GAA matters, as both are ultimately irrelevant

But we have an active disinformation peddler of the worst kind on this forum and the sort of disinformation he pushes has become widespread online and is costing lives

It is the public health equivalent of the big lies fed to the Trump supporting nutcases at the Capitol last week

It is draining and thoroughly depressing for anybody to try and combat this disinformation which comes 24/7 from somebody who has seemingly no other purpose in life except to push this disinformation, and is totally impervious to reason - which is why I have largely given up trying to do so

Seaney was the same before he was seemingly banned recently

Some people decide to reject reality, and they are always the most performatively confident and aggressive

Little wonder the Covid threads have turned into a total car crash
Tell us more.

I could take it or leave it, mostly I leave it.  More action on the fields would cut out a lot of the 'off-season' crap.  Can't believe how much soccer on a GAA Discussion Board - boring.  Really you have some posters more interested in their ego that any constructive debate or discussion, some being deliberately divisive or insulting. 

When the fun is over time to stop?!

Jim and Harte will be remembered in 10/15 years time as the men who nearly destroyed football with their defensive crap. It’s taken a great, skilful, resilient Dublin side to restore our faith in the beautiful game. Hopefully Kerry will return to their more attacking flair game and will provide with another great rivalry. I do think Tyrone will be a lot more attacking without Harte and they have some very good forwards also.

Yes, the game is so much more exciting now. Never been in a more healthy state.

Lenny is from Derry, they produce big agricultural footballers there so I'm not sure on why Lenny thinks he should be a spokesperson for what good attacking football should be. Derry have produced two good forwards in the past 30+ years and one of them was a Tyrone man.
Is that 35 years or less than that?

I'm just using 30+ years as a general term. Their AI winning team did not have any top class forwards. Some outstanding defenders and the best midfielder in the game at the time but a really ordinary forward line. Paddy Bradley and Muldoon were the only top level forwards Derry have produced in that time so I don't think Lenny is a person who knows what he is talking about when he mentions attacking football.

Derry have always been a team with a focus on size and defence unlike their neighbours Tyrone who have always produced players with attacking flair and inventive play.
You now have replaced 'good forwards' with 'top class forwards' - which is it?
Well?

You're the one making the distinction.
No - you wrote it, you replaced it and therefore made the distinction.

I will repeat again that I have made no distinction between good and top class. You seem to be the only one doing that.
I suspect that you realised your first comment was ridiculous and back-peddled.  Thought you were made of stronger stuff than that?

I'll once again state that I make no distinction between those two terms, you seem to be trying to do it on my behalf but you don't speak for me.
Speak for you?!  Jaysus, no, never!  Where did that come from?   Anyhow you have clarified that, for you, there is no distinction.  A good player = a top class player, in your world.  Thanks for that.

Could it be that drug companies are up to their old tricks in the trials/tesing the efficacy of their drugs and not disclosing full accurate information about those trials?

A lot of posters on here are going to look like prize idiots in the coming years, thankfully I won't be one of them.
Some posters will be delighted that you are leaving!

I'd imagine a lot of posters would love that. They might have a free run at talking all the utter bollocks they want then with nobody to hold them to account.
Do you actually take this stuff seriously?  It is a discussion board ffs.  Entertainment!

General discussion / Re: The vaccine rollout
« on: January 16, 2021, 06:12:46 PM »
Is anyone optimistic about a return to any sort of normality sometime this year e.g. restaurants and pubs reopening, crowds at sporting events, theatres, concerts, reduced social distancing etc?

I was more optimistic in December than I am now given the rate of the vaccine rollout.  To me, it should be a 24x7 effort until everyone has it, but supplies seem to be preventing any sort of mass nationwide roll out.

I honestly don’t know how pubs go back to how they were. Restaurants I could see late in the year.

A lot depends on success of vaccine I guess but even if the logistics of distribution get sorted then it would probably take some time to get confidence back etc.

I would be hoping restaurants get opened before then mind all be it slightly restricted.

If the pubs aren’t going to open properly then it’ll be another miserable year, if we go down the route of a vaccine passport surely then we can at the very least start removing restrictions?

Those vaccinated now, are they registered has having received the jab? A data base wouldn’t be that difficult to produce

What should we do with those who die from the vaccine?
The normal procedure is to bury them.  Were you thinking of something else?

The title of the thread is will you get a vaccine becomes available 2021, it came in 2020 and 99% of the vulnerable will have it by Feb 21.

Fantastic

Well done scientists, real actual experts in their field.

Hats of to those who know what they are talking about
Well said.  As someone who is shielding again, I can't wait for the vaccine.

Brolly is a shock jock much like George Hook was in the rugby.
Say something controversial to stay somewhat relevant.
Everybody knows it. Ignoring is the best solution.
Honestly I don’t know why anyone would ever get bothered about what he says.
I agree.  Joe was born in Dungiven but went to boarding school in Armagh.  Nothing wrong with that.  However he was never 'one of the lads' so craves acceptance as 'one of the lads'.   His career path obviously took him away from being 'one of the lads' or a 'sur', as locally known in Dungiven.  An intelligent man but his emotional intelligence is questionable.  Very impulsive - take the kidney donation for example.   Anyhow when he resorts to criticise (sometimes personally) to analyse, then he is just playing to the audience. Same as his playing days with the blowing kisses.  You probably could have a good night's craic in his company - but once a year would do you!
