General discussion / Re: The IRISH RUGBY thread
« on: August 27, 2015, 04:45:01 PM »
I see England have announced their squad. . . some big calls in there no Twelvetrees and the 2 Rugby league lads in. A statement of intent there with the bang crash game with those centres.

Also no place for Easter or Cipriani? If anything happens to George Ford they are goosed!!

It'll be interesting to see what Schmidt does. Trimble away back to Ulster this weekend is a big call. I would have thought he was ahead of Dave Kearney but I guess injury is a problem. Fitzgerald and Henshaw in the midfield this weekend is a very interesting one I think it's a partnership that could do well but is Fitzgerald strong enough in defence for that role?

Still more questions than answers at this stage but an intriguing few weeks ahead!
Who is the 2nd league fella? Burgess is a huge call and i think he will get destroyed defensively by some teams.

At least now with Lord Coe heading up world athletics we can be sure of zero tolerance on drugs cheats.

Radcliffs pal. Have a look at some of his times from the 80's, the Africans are barely past them well over 30 years later.
You're on a roll now , so are you saying that every elite record that has stood for a long time was the result of being juiced up? Would you say the same about Eamon Coughlan, Ray Flynn, Marcus O'Sullivan, John Tracey were on drugs?

Bought a Fire TV stick in the last Amazon sale but only got around to setting it up last night. Getting kodi installed is not the easiest despite all the helpful tutorials but i got there in the end.
I have added some of the add-ons noted here ( Vdubt25 ,Iptvstalker,Pak hind) but none of the channells are workign on Pak Hind and the Irish channels don't work on Vdub25. Do they automatic update or do you have to look for new add-ons?
Got the Mutts Nuts and it worked brilliantly.

After watching An Lá a Rugadh Mé ar TG4 and Ciarán Kilkenny was born the year Alan McLoughlin scored THAT goal in Windsor. Holy fcuk...

Should have called this thread 'When did you realise you were old'.

I was reading the down thread and some clown was moaning about Glenn's pitch. I was thinking to myself he'd have loved the one at the side of the road near the Sheepbridge, then had a sudden moment of clarity about how old I really am. Doesnt last long
Aye. Im 39 and still think of myself a pup but got a shock last year. I had to go away with work and our young receptionist had to book flights for us. When i gave her my passport she looked at my date of birth and said OMG! i was expecting her to say i didnt look my age ...... she turned around and said i was older than her mum...

Holy shit!
When i watched the video last night for the first time i actually jumped when the blast hit the people recording it, if they were getting such a wallop you can only dread what has happened people closer to the blast.

We Were Upvoted for Posting Nazi Propaganda about Migrants in the Daily Mail
So as a social experiment, @DMReporter and I wanted to see what level of support the comments would get if we took some famous pieces of Nazi propaganda and changed the word ‘Jew’ with ‘migrant’

couldnt have summed it up any better. all the mcclean knockers on here should be ashamed of themselves and theres plenty of our fellow posters who couldnt wait to come on and join with the DUP and the tory press in condeming him.
Would you have the same view if some Ulster rugby players turned their back when Amhrán Na bhFiann is played

Dunne could be under pressure to be leading amateur the way the scoring is going today. At the minute Ashley Chesters is 5 under for the day and 11 under overall and Oliver Schienderjans is 5 under for the day and 9 under overall. Crazy scores for amateurs!

Very little mention of the Donegal management, what do the Donegal lads think of Gallagher and the way he set up the team? Would McG have made much difference?

Greece crisis: Parliament votes to accept austerity measures as Athens burns
http://www.independent.ie/business/world/greece-crisis-parliament-votes-to-accept-austerity-measures-as-athens-burns-31380933.html

How the f**k can Alexis Tsipras stay as prime minister after half his own party vote against the measures and he sings up for Austerity measures more strict than what was on the table 3 months ago.

Only about 30 out of 150 Syriza MP's voted against the measures. In the UK the goverment whether its Tory or Labour often have similar amount of rebels in a number of important votes.
Tsipras had no hand to play with, he used the referendum to try and give him some leverage but the rest of Europe saw it for what it was. His only other option is Grexit which would in the short term anyway be catastrophic.
He has played all the hands he will ever get and fucked up the country more than when he started. How people can think he has played a blinder is beyond me.

Exactly either parley with Europe or take a Grexit. Choose the best way forward for your people and show a bit of f**king backbone. He's a spoofer of the highest order.

He was elected on an anti-austerity ticket, he took that to the brink in the hope of getting a better deal for Greece and lost out. His alternative was to leave the Euro and / or get assistance from Russia / China (those may not even have been options) and he obviously didn't think that was best for Greece and / or not what the Greek people wanted.

It's the equivalent of betting big early on in a poker game, hoping to bully your way to the pot but when you're called all-in with nothing in your hand, your only option is to fold.

I don't know how you can say he's shown a lack of backbone, he completely misjudged the situation and that's his fault - if he wanted to play hardball, he had to be willing call the EU's bluff and to leave the euro. But I think it's incorrect to say he's shown a lack of backbone. I wouldn't say he's played a blinder either though.

If you don't agree with the way he played it, then which alternative should he have chosen:

1. Accept the bailout upfront and backtrack on his election promises??
2. Take Greece out of the euro even though polls indicate that most Greeks don't want that??
3. AN Other??

In retrospect, what he should have done was to make the referendum a straight In/Out question on the Euro
Why did he have a referendum in the first case? That was his biggest cop out, asking people who have put up with Austerity for 6-7 years to vote for even more tougher austerity was never going to happen.
