Also if O'Neill is "out of contract" does he still get paid?

As far as I'm aware he is still getting paid OK Jim

Was MON not given a new contract before the Wales game?

Nope - verbal agreement only nothing signed

Thought Dermot Desmond picked and pays the Ireland manager?

Contributes to the wages but nothing else as far as I know

Its incredible really to be observing this. Nothing Trump says surprises me anymore as he's obviously deranged/racist/senile - take your pick. Here's an extract from an interview with that liberal bastion the WSJ and its a real rant about how he is the smartest and best at everything, as WSJ tries to ask him about Bannon, must be read to be believed. The amazing thing is he got elected.

Interesting to note that there's been no contract in place since the last one ran out in November but the good old FAI have been paying the management team anyway - As usual great governance from Delaney and Co

It's because he's from Athy. :)

I always feel he's talking down to the audience. Preachy.

Are you sure you are not mixing him up with Ewan MacKenna, also from Athy!!!

Always knew it was a kip ;)

Anyone listen to the Fergus Connolly OTB podcast? Will try and get to it tonight

I'd say more an over reliance on pain killers and anti inflamatories. Look I'm no chemist, nor do I have a degree in sports science. But when I see the size of these lads, the punishment they take, the pain they are in and then they just do it all again a week later, you have to wonder.

Absolutely - there's recovery and then there's "recovery"

What do our Rugby followers think of this story https://www.independent.ie/sport/rugby/munster-rugby/everybody-makes-mistakes-van-graan-willing-to-forgive-munster-second-rows-doping-past-36474261.html

I'd be more with Ger Gilroy's stance on it below then the coache's tbh

"What does it say to anyone in the Munster academy when a known, confessed drugs cheat who has served a ban for taking an anabolic steroid is brought into the club?," Gilroy asked.

"What does it say to the fans? What do the Munster fans have to say about this? If you are a sponsor, are you happy to be associated with the fact that this guy is representing Munster, the province and by extension, Irish rugby, and the brands that are associated with it?

"I just don't think enough of a conversation has been had about this. I don't really feel very comfortable with the fact that Irish rugby has decided that we are going to be the ones who help drug cheats rehabilitate their reputation.

"I understand that people do a crime, serve the time and need to be rehabilitated so there is a bit of conflict in that aspect to it. Maybe if he has decided to dedicate his life to a drug-free spot, fair enough, I can see something in that but we haven't see that so far.

"More of a conversation needs to be had around this and frankly, I don't think Munster should be spending money rehabilitating drugs cheats."
