What is wrong with that? I also belive in him because I want the bliss of heaven.

If there's nothing wrong with it, then there's nothing particularly right about it either. You're (supposedly) trading faith for a reward/avoidance of penalty. I don't see such a quid quo pro arrangement as noble nor is the narcissistic alleged being who would offer and reward such a consequential bargain based in such a trivial judgement worthy of any admiration.

And of course that all presupposes that you can " choose" to believe.

The issue here is surely the fact that such a big county like Tyrone has only one floodlit venue in Omagh

They channel all their money into winning the McKenna Cup.

Tyrone were the best team in Ulster in January 2016 and 2017 and proved it again come July. Maybe some of the other ulster counties who have won nothing of note in a long time should start taking it a bit more serious.

And what, straw clutching - Ulster is shite.  ;D ;D

Tyrone just won back to back ulster titles. I'm not sure anyone from the other 8 ulster counties are in a position to take the hand out of them for also adding McKenna Cup's to their trophy haul. If anything it proved it didn't do any harm and the form held up later in the year. Dublin or Mayo could look down their nose at the McKenna Cup but you'd think some of the other ulster counties would be glad to try and win something.

McKenna Cup is worthy of mention in a "trophy haul"??

Fair play to DC. Showed excellent leadership in last 15 minutes and kicked a great point.

He always kicks a great point or two.

Lost in the hype after Donegal ambushed them in 2014 was the fact that Connolly scored two of the best points I've ever seen, one on either foot, after jinking around multiple players in zero space.

Perhaps the internet signal strength IS an issue.

We have a plan which gives us up to 330 Mbps and the Roku app has been excellent. No issues whatsoever with buffering this year.

Marvelous game after what's been a poor championship with too many drubbings. Was honestly sickened and even a little bitter when Dublin were left standing when the music stopped, but that gave away quickly to admiration for their ability to keep their heads and grind it out, yet again, when Mayo, the only ones who can, put them to the pin of their collar. It's just this Mayo team's misfortune to always have someone a tiny mite better, even as they themselves have improved year on year. Unfortunately, the Dubs only look like they're going to get better next year again and Mayo will have to console themselves with being the second best team of the 2010s and possibly, as has been suggested, the best team to not win an All Ireland.

Same old story so far, exciting forward movement, poor strikes, and disaster at the back
Matip was a disgrace for their goal.
I actually thought klavan was more at fault.

Agreed. Matip was not strong enough but Klavan positioning was awful. Bad miss from Solanke near the end as well

The ball was deflected as it came across to Solanke. He'd little time to react and adjust.

Yes, great job this year.

Worked fantastically on Roku.

If only NBC Sports could get their shit sorted with their premier league app in a similar fashion!

Id say that Kim Jong thingy is perfectly sane.
Acquiring a nuclear arsenal is a perfectly sensible thing to do in the interest of staving off regime toppling invasions and in the medium term it will give him added diplomatic clout.
The irony of course is that he had protection anyway considering his border with Russia and China but with a thermonuclear device on the head of a ICBM in his weaponry he is causing more than a diplomatic stir which will lead him open to a (ahem) quiet regime change from "within".

I'm seriously suspicious about his speed of attaining all this technology tho. There is obiviously assistance ,just a question of is it orchestrated by China or even Russia to cause instability.

Id say you are completely an utterly wrong Joe, but that's me!

Any leader who starves his people, who denies them basic human rights and any leader who spends over 90% of his nations budget on the military is a complete and utter wing nut! The man is trying to push the world to the edge of nuclear war and of he f**k with that other lunaticto the west his country will get flattened beyond repair, hows that for sanity Joe?

He can be both stew.

His brutality and callousness with respect to his own people (and family!) don't negate the strategic soundness of raising the potential costs of foreign intervention against his regime to utterly ruinous.

Gays can get married in the UK or the South.Why do they want a marriage,a church based sacrament,when they are in conflict with the Church's teaching?

Marriage is a civic institution with an optional religious component for those who want it.

Since when?

Since governments and the legal system got involved?

Unlike, say, communion or confirmation or confession.

I wish I had time to protest like the ones in the photo. As for a culture of crime against women in this country, its hardly that bad. Varadkar even said it today, excuse me sir are you not from India, a barbaric cesspit of a country, where rape is natural and a huge class society exists. If your not happy here Leo, you can go home you know, apart from appeasing the media he has done feck all.

Varadkar is just the Dublin-born Taoiseach. Why the f**k would he be commenting on anything that is a high profile talking point in Irish society? :o

It's a photo opportunity self driven political gain chancerism. Coming from a culture of horrendous treatment of women I find it a bit shite. I don't like the sarky nature of your post not the first time either.

Doubling down on the xenophobia I see. What part of him being Irish did you miss?

Being a blueshirt he can hardly be called Irish. West Brit perhaps.

 ;D

If you think it's just a photo op, then just say that and leave out the irrelevant, xenophobic ad hominem attacks.

Sarcasm is sometimes appropriate (you were fully aware he is Irish-born, while how the hell is he in any way responsible for what goes on in India?). Xenophobia never is.

What about intersex people (used to be grouped under hermaphrodites) stew? They, for whatever reason, whether anatomical, chromosomal or otherwise, don't fit into your neat pigeon holes. Biological development is sometimes a messy thing.

They are entitled to be whichever they see themselves, I wouldn't wish that on anybody, that has to be unbelievably hard.

Neat pidgeon holes my arse! It is the way it is and always was, don't blame me, I helped create two females, as for the rest, not my problem.

I'm not blaming you for anything.

I'm questioning your contention that they're either male or female when it is obviously not always that simple.

Tradition is irrelevant. Culture and knowledge evolves as formerly held norms and sacred cows are found wanting.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "not my problem" bit?

Mental fcukers, also videos of them fighting cops doing the rounds too. Like I said before United and Liverpool are in Moscow on the same week and CSKA and Spartak are in Englandís North West on the same week later on  :o

Genius-level stuff by the organizers.
