Shamrock Rovers doing alright in that 1st half and had a few decent chances to score. AC Milan scored with their only shot on target, a lad aged near 40 with the goal.

Odd this is in European football but Rovers did very well against a serious Milan unit. Jack Byrne didn't look out of place

What's odd about it? It was a Europa League qualifying game. AC Milan are a long way from the serious side they once were.

Who were they playing?

Any flu numbers from last 5-10 years compared to now?, I know it's only Sept.
Yes, I'm implying that it's a bad flu,  and yes I have had a death in the family from Covid19 "related" symptoms.

The Covid restriction measures have serioudly slowed down the spread of the flu, which is much more predictable and treatable

ive heard some say the devout catholic thing from mcconnel is all an act but ive heard some say its real. Was mcconnel a former donegal football at minor level.

He's a lunatic. Viciously and loudly homophobic. There's nothing Catholic or Christian about that.

Oh dear

Do you watch the show yourself?
Did you? And if not what qualifies you to have an opinion on it?

No. Have you watched it?

No, not even slightly interested. Thats why I asked you what your problem with it is. I woild never dream of critiquing something I haven't seen.

Sorry, I thought you were taking the sole stance that GAA rules & club constitutions should not be ignored by club committees, and indeed that if they even considered it they should not be in their roles.

I thought it a noble stance - a man showing great regard for the founding ethos & principles of our association.

Ah well, it’s hard to police - fcuk the constitution lads, who are we getting in this year?

Do you source all your equipment and admin stuff in Ireland? Do you pay coaches? Do you operate in Irish? Does your club offer Irish dancing?

The point is its a silly rule that is ignored when it suits. Clubs are dying and can't monetise their assets that they maintain. The local committee are well capable of making the call as to the relationship with other sports. The GAA encouraged clubs to get astro pitches they cannot afford to maintain and they can't rent to the rest of the community.

This ehole thing should have been buried when the GAA were pilloried for refusing to allow that fundraiser in Omagh. Its archaic and no longer is required.

The rule is pretty straightforward. No foreign games are to be played on GAA grounds.
Hope that answers your question.

Except Croke Park. Or shared GAA grounds. Or GAA grounds on public parks.

So where are the so called irish republican paramilitarys who claim to be left leaning why are they allowing the right to rise in irelannd whats going on.

You want them to go out and shoot them?

The problem is their numbers remain miniscule but they seem to have fooled a load of well meaning turnips into going out and marching for covid. Last Saturdays mess will damage that and whenever covid does slow down we will see if the alliance holds.
I don't think it will damage it to be honest - there was already rioting at one of the previous far right rallies at the Customs House on August 22nd and yet the crowds still increased for last Saturday

These "well meaning turnips" are already on the spectrum that inevitably leads to the far right

They're radicalised by a deep cynicism, anger and gullibility, and that will inevitably be turned against ethnic minorities and immigrants

The entirely made up propaganda about the fire in Balbriggan was the clearest example yet of how the far right see turning white working class people against ethnic minorities and immigrants through a blizzard of lies as their go to strategy

Reporting of these far right rallies so far has not framed the message effectively about what they really are - in several cases reporting has actually been quite favourable to them for those who skim read headlines -  this is a pattern that seems to be repeated over and over again across different countries - a false legitimacy is bestowed on them by negligent reporting

There seems to be negative feedback about that Donegal nutter, lots walked away when he started going on about replacement theory and praying. Three marches at the same time? They will fall apart as they always do.

The real problem is the Loyalist link up and the rent a mob they bring.

Sure the GAA at top level broke its rules to allow 2 soccer teams to play a soccer match in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
They just closed their eyes and called it a "Charity event".
There might be "dozens of members" objecting in 6 Co clubs but round here you might get 1 or 2.
Personally I cant abide soccer as it's 90 minutes of boredom but I can't see any problem letting them use a GAA club facility provided they pay (in advance) and cover insurance and doesn't interfere with Club activities.
Like they did when they were playing Internationals in Croke Park.

PUC had signed an explicit agreement to waive rule 42 for funding. So not the case here.

Just rent them the pitch and hope nobody rats you out. Hundreds of clubs do it.

Again all very far-fetched. Those "rumours" are the kind of stuff that you'd see in the Sunday Sport or the National Enquirer. If that's the level Russia are at, then we've little to worry about.
They even tried to rig the last FF leadership election. We know they were involved in Brexit and getting Trump in.

Even if they fail the fact that theyy are undermining democracy is enough in itself. But when they win the fundamentally weaken the west

I think a large part of this comes down to the internet comment culture. The idea that your opinion has the same weight as an expert in their field needs to stop. By all means question orthadoxy, but the source material is always dogshit, which is where the Moscow led disinformation steps in.

There is a deliberate attempt to end our Western reason led culture and the political system that underpins it.

Isn't this Putin stuff a conspiracy theory of its own?

There you go. I'm just some flute on the Internet. Please apply that filter elsewhere.

Yes, the poster who dismissed the Cuties furore as "a Qanon conspiracy theory". And now you with your " perfectly valid to harbour strong doubts and suspicions of the motives and authenticity of claims originating from movements like QAnon" apologia.

I don't think you understand the word 'aplogia'.

I simply asked why the poster wanted to have something banned and the proposer was unable to answer. We now apparantly have Netflix showing 'child porn'.

You are jumping aboard a Qanon bandwagon without bothering to do research and then the Qanon trick that anyone who questions you is a paedo apologist.

Try harder, you aren't on 4cham or stormfront.

So you are now the wtf.

What are you going on about? I already answered. There should be no need for any grouping (internet or otherwise) to tell you that films containing pre-teen girls in skimpy clothes with close up body shots is disturbing.

If people want to justify their reason for watching is down to not giving in to qanon then they can continue to convince themselves of that. maybe after their 10th viewing they will start to understand the intellectual arguments behind what the director was attempting to portray.  ::)

The only thing I know about this film is the discussion on this thread. You may be right that it is child porn, although you haven’t offered much of an argument. I’m arguing the principle.

Grown adults can make and watch films/documentaries about disturbing subjects without it serving the purpose of titillation. Did anyone watch Schindler’s List ten times for sexual kicks because it depicts Jewish Holocaust victims stripped naked on their way to the “showers”? Or are most people mature enough to see the scene as a true-to-life depiction of the depravity and inhumanity of the Nazis?

I don't really think there is much of an argument needed. From various media sources we already know the content in the film. If people need to watch 11 year old girls twerk and gyrate to prove their point then enjoy the show.

Various media sources?

You do get that the show is criticiding the likes of you
