Lynch, your exact words were:

“If you are a kaperneck fan , well he painted himself into that corner and I have no sympathy for him for bringing that into American football sporting arenas.”

(My emphasis.)

You expect us to believe that the word “that” in your statement refers to something other than politics? Or maybe you’re now going to use some contorted logic to suggest that the BLM movement is not political. Whatever.

Don’t insult our intelligence. We all know you weren’t talking about the weather.

Sport has always been political. Kaperneck is not the first person to use a sporting platform to make a political point.
No offense but you are certainly pushing the boundaries of cyber bullying here.
Thrusting your opinions down someone's throat and telling them what they mean


My issue with kaperneck and what he did at no stage says political.
It was his actions of starting off a protest within a sporting arena that annoyed me. He could have protested outside city hall during the week, but to bring any protest into sports is wrong.  Whether the protest is personal pay related , gay rights, anti carbon emissions, anti abortion, anti Mexican wall,  anti patriots/brady/deflategate persecution or anti cyber bullying - to highlight and conduct an act in this arena is way wrong.
It was the act of bringing the game into disrepute I was referring to.
So feel free to apologise.. but like most bullying behaviour, I suspect one will be lacking.

What's your opinion on what Tommie Smith and John Carlos did?

How can something political not be political?

Do you have any concept of what politics is at all?
Eamonn/sid
I'm not mentioning politics or political at all.
Please point out where I did.

My issue is with any kind of protest being held within a sporting event.
I'm against strikes at work unless it's a pre agreed union ratified strike.

Your schoolboy name calling about any comprehension on the English language further depicts an ethos of schoolyard bulky boy mentality.
I'm guessing the apology isn't forthcoming ?

Ah I get it.

You don't answer questions and claim imagined victimhood.

You're only here to troll.

A curiously similar modus operandi to another account with similar views to yourself.

Kaperneck brought politics into the NFL? Are you for real?

“As recently as 2015, the Department of Defense was doling out millions to the NFL for such things as military flyovers, flag unfurlings, emotional color guard ceremonies, enlistment campaigns, and — interestingly enough — national anthem performances. Additionally, according to Vice, the NFL’s policy on players standing for the national anthem also changed in 2009, with athletes “encouraged” thereafter to participate. Prior to that, teams were not given any specific instructions on the matter; some chose to remain in the locker room until after opening ceremonies were completed. (It’s unclear whether the policy change was implemented as a direct result of any Defense Department contracts.)”

How the NFL sold patriotism to the U.S. military for millions
Point out where I said politics...


..but thanks- you are proving my point
Presumably you also had no sympathy for Tommie Smith and John Carlos over the scandalous treatment they received.
You didn't answer my question to you  above
I can't answer a supposed question to me which doesn't exist.

This decision really is astounding colonial arrogance from the Brits.

"Hey, Bangladesh - we're stripping this brown girl of her British citizenship, and we expect you, our former colony, to give her citizenship, so that she can be your problem and not ours. We don't care that she has never even been to Bangladesh. Know your place, piccaninnies, and do what your rightful master Britain tells you."

This is actually what is happening.

The SDP was founded in 1981 with mostly Labour defectors and a small number of Tories.

The Tories remained in power until 1997.
I have seen the argument that having the SDP actually reduced the Tory majority as it gave those disaffected with Labour swing to the hard left (Militant Tendency were the Momentum of their day)  a way to vote against the Tories.
Basic maths says that argument is nonsense.

It's the same argument that tries to make out that if somebody like Howard Schultz attracted a sizeable vote in the 2020 US election would it hurt Trump more than the Democratic candidate. It wouldn't.

Disgusting right wing populist decision.

What a vile government the UK has.

You think that's right wing, you should see the stuff the girl in question believes....
You didn't debate my point.

There is just pure racism going on in this forum now and the constant reference to someone's skin colour.
Interesting that on a GAA forum, the poster in question hasn't made a single post on a GAA-related matter.

I'd hate to speculate that said poster is only on here to engage in shameless far right trolling, but said poster is definitely only here to engage in shameless far right trolling.

No surprise to see the forum's resident racist in chief portraying a black president as sub human.

A country’s government will say they are so happy being in the EU, but the people think differently. The Lisbon Treaty being the perfect example.

For all this EU arselicking from Dublin, a lot of ordinary  Irish people don’t like or trust the EU.

Fake news.

Vested interest lobby group commissions poll that gives it the result to justify its agenda shocker.
I never had you pegged for a conspiracy theorist, but that suggestion is wacky. The poll was done by Red C. Do you really imagine they would fake a poll? And fake such a huge margin of consensus?

Everybody who wants Ireland to leave the EU is a conspiracy theorist on some level.

It goes with the territory.

Question - for anyone wanting to take her back.

Would you be happy if she moved into your street for your child to grow up playing/hanging out etc with your child or indeed for her to start hanging out with your children?

No, but that's not the point, is it?

The problem here is that everything is slightly complicated by teeny weeny things like laws and rights.

Im not questioning the laws or rights - simply asking how people would feel about it and if you would be happy?
Grand so.

We've established her legal rights should be upheld, and the law should be upheld.

And that's basically the end of the thread.

So would you be happy if she was moved in to your street? Simple question Sid
No, of course not - but that has absolutely no bearing as to whether she should be allowed to move to my street - if I lived in the UK, of course, which I don't.

There are many people I'd rather didn't live beside me - some of them are even on this forum.

I'd absolutely hate it if Stephen Yaxley-Lennon moved into the house next to me, for instance. That doesn't mean he shouldn't have the right to move into the house next to me, or that I think he should be locked up without due process.

Not liking somebody is not a basis for locking them up or denying them their legal rights.

And it is sort of a shame to have to explain that.

No I get what you are saying however it does go some way to explain the opposition to her getting back in.

Fear of moving close to you/me etc
Fear of attempting to brainwash those she comes in contact with or young impressionable people.
Fear of housing other like minded individuals.
Fear of a lone wolf attack.

Simply because she holds a passport doesnt make it right that she should get back in
The UK has to have a duty of care for its citizens. It is absolutely right that she should get back in and then let due process do the rest.

Of course they would. This is an internet forum where you can claim to support a whole world of different views and opinions without actually having to carry out any significant action in the real world.
We're obviously dealing with an intellectual powerhouse here, folks.
