Very interesting game to watch for the neutral. Some excellent football, and some very poor football too. 4 points definitely flattered Kerry but Tyrone's finishing was surprisingly poor at times. Agree that should have been a red for the late cheap shot on Cooper, for the black cards not sure that there was a strong case for the second one. Tyrone Should have had the second penalty. Entertaining game but that Tyrone team could do a lot of damage next year. Kerry looked ropey at times - either Dublin or Mayo would fancy their chances based on that performance.

I think this will be the most fascinating election in ages, there is an open field for the Republican nomination, and while Clinton is the overwhelming favourite for the Democratic nomination, I'm not sure its as simple as all that just yet. It would appear to me that Trump is the biggest vote getter for the Democrats in years.

Whitey, Am I right in thinking that in your mind, "self proclaimed socialist" is a slur?

On a side note Bernie's event at the weekend shut down by 2 girls from Black Lives Matter-wonder how he'll fare out dealing with Putin or Iran-LOL

I'm not sure what's going on here. did you just pick two sentences and put them in a row with a hyphen, and stick an LOL at the end? or do you perceive some link between the two?

Have you seen the Geno Smith episode?

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/12/sports/football/ikemefuna-enemkpali-the-backup-who-broke-geno-smiths-jaw.html

Quote
With one punch, Ikemefuna Enemkpali transformed himself from a little known third-string linebacker into a figure of infamy for the Jets.



Geno Smith was scheduled to have surgery after his jaw was broken.

Enemkpali, 24, broke quarterback Geno Smith’s jaw on Tuesday morning with what Coach Todd Bowles called a “sucker punch.” He was immediately released.

Enemkpali, known as I.K., grew up in Texas and was a team captain at Louisiana Tech. A defensive lineman and sack specialist who earned all-Conference USA status in his final season, he was drafted in the sixth round in 2014 by the Jets. At 6 feet 1 inch, 272 pounds, he was considered a bit undersized for an N.F.L. defensive line and was converted to an outside linebacker.

He got into six games as a rookie last year and made three tackles in limited minutes. He drew more attention from the news media for the difficulty some people had in pronouncing his name (it’s in-em-PAUL-ee) than for his performance on the field.

His draft profile on NFL.com, in a weird bit of foreshadowing, said: “Strengths: Very thickly built. Flashes shock and violence in his punch. Highly competitive, plays hard and motor runs hot. Keeps battling to the quarterback.”

While at Louisiana Tech, he was arrested in April 2011 for disturbing the peace and battery of a police officer and was suspended from the team, though he returned in time for the start of the season. He was eventually sentenced to probation and community service.

“A young, hotheaded decision,” Enemkpali told ESPN. “I didn’t know he was undercover, which is no excuse, but ... yeah, I lost my cool.”

After earning $420,000 last season, he was to have made $510,000 with the Jets this year.

His sister Nneka played basketball at the University of Texas and was drafted this spring in the third round of the W.N.B.A. draft by the Seattle Storm, although she is sitting out the season with a torn ACL.

The locker room incident led to an immediate outpouring of despair, schadenfreude and humor on social media.

Im back in for another year of humiliation with one glorious week of defying the odds (imposed by my useless drafting skills)

Some club makers have niche strengths, so you'll see a lot of Callaway Drivers and Putters, Taylor Made Drivers, Cleveland Wedges etc. Most players tend to have at least a couple of them in the bag.

This is the case for the players without a significant sponsor. They have flexibility in choice of club, as the deals get bigger they insert an exclusivity clause. Nike take this to the extreme, no Nike golfers have any other logos or clubs or balls allowed on their person. Another logo is allowed on the bag

from pool thread:

I'm actually looking forward to a very interesting season, I don't think Chelsea will be as relentless first half of the season as they were last year which will make it a good run for everyone til Christmas. I think City, United and Liverpool will all be erratic in the first few months, I get the feeling Arsenal will be a bit steadier, Cech is such a great signing for them. I don't really see spurs threatening much this year. But of the top 5 I think every one of them has a shot at going on a great run. Whichever of them sparks first will make it an interesting battle with Chelsea at the top, I just don't think that any of the rest has the squad or management to beat Chelsea and Mourinho unless he has a horrible run of injuries. City, united and Liverpool will all be significantly altered from last year and I think 2 of that 3 will round out the CL places behind Chelsea as winners and Arsenal in second. City have a more settled and IMHO better squad than Liverpool or United, so I'd have them likely 3rd, but I don't see that United team gelling first half of the season, so Liverpool 4th and United 5th. I think there's a big gulf between those 5 and the rest of the field.

going down:
sunderland norwich leicester

hoping newcastle and stoke (after the first game) have good seasons
