GAA Discussion / Re: Mayo Medical Team should be Sacked

We are slowly watching the neurological disintegration of Johnny Sexton, who I am in no doubt will suffer a further concussion in the 6 nations.

It was only a matter of time before Johnny Sexton came into it. The papers have that incident completely overhyped. This thread is similar. It's very unlikely that Lee Keegan was concussed at all, the blow was to the top of his head. The recent Sexton blow was to his jaw.

Concussion is only likely if you get a clash to the temple area.

Our 2 lads in Limerick should have came back onto the pitch that day, I'm still awaiting the reason for the hold up.
One of the most ignorant things i have read on the subject, im amazed with the amount of info available that someone would have that opinion !

This is a long article but well worth reading, some of it is frightening

I had three weeks of no games and I thought that would sort me out. But heading into my comeback match I was knocked out at training. It wasn't even a head clash. One of the boys just ran a decoy line and bumped into me and I was knocked out. When you are getting knocked out and no one is even touching your head you realise things have got pretty bad.

hard stats !

Leicester going well has peaked my interest in the EPL, but ultimately I'm worn thin by the whole money / super-club / billionaire play thing / £300k wages per week non-contact circus soccer has become, and none of it a patch on what was seen @ the Athletic Grounds on Sat night as regards an exciting sporting spectacle.  Rugby won't be far behind by the looks of things.
It will be all downhill from here.

Ireland U20 squad named. 14 Leinster, 6 Munster, 4 Connacht and 4 Ulster.

Glad to see the number rising in Munster but a little disappointing from an Ulster point of view - still too reliant on Leinster.

Ireland U20 Six Nations squad - Forwards: James Bollard (Dublin University/Leinster), Kelvin Brown (Shannon/Munster), Peter Claffey (Galwegians/Leinster), Will Connors (UCD / Leinster), Max Deegan (Lansdowne/Leinster), Shane Fenton (Young Munster/Munster), John Foley (Shannon/Shannon), Cillian Gallagher (Sligo RFC/Connacht), Greg Jones (UCD/Leinster), Conor Kenny (Buccaneers/Connacht), Adam McBurney (Ballymena/Ulster), Sean O'Connor (Cashel/Munster), Conan O'Donnell (Sligo/Connacht), Andrew Porter (UCD/Leinster), James Ryan (Lansdowne/Leinster), Dan Walsh (Cork Con/Munster)

Backs: Matthew Byrne (Terenure/Leinster), Brett Connon (Newcastle Falcons/Exlies), Shane Daly (Cork Con/Munster), Hugo Keenan (UCD/Leinster), Terry Kennedy (St Mary's/Leinster), Stephen Kerins (Sligo/Connacht), Paul Kiernan (UCC/Leinster), Robert Lyttle (Queen's University/Ulster), Johnny McPhillips (Queen's University/Ulster), Conor O'Brien (Clontarf/Leinster), Jimmy O'Brien (UCD/Leinster), John Poland (Cork Con/Munster), Jack Power (UCD/Leinster), Jacob Stockdale (Belfast Harlequins/Ulster)
Is that correct?

Legendary rock singer David Bowie, who died at the weekend, was included in the votes of sympathy read out by vice-chairman Peter O'Halloran at the end of Monday night's meeting of the Meath County Board.

The announcement of “the Bowie family in London on the death of David” was met with laughter in the room – but anger from the top table.

I do think the governments have missed out on acting quickly enough on these. Do farmers want people coming out flyin these yokes over their land and scaring livestock. I can see them becoming a big problem
I know of a farmer using one to check on his stock!

General discussion / Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall announce engagement
« on: January 12, 2016, 09:23:01 AM »
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and actress-model Jerry Hall are to get married.
They announced their engagement in the births, marriages and deaths section of the Times newspaper, which is owned by Mr Murdoch's News Corporation company.
It will be the fourth marriage for Mr Murdoch, 84, and the first for Miss Hall, 59, although she lived with singer Sir Mick Jagger for many years.

Watched it all...just finished it

Absolutely incredible by the police and prosecution. Give me the PSNI/Gardai anyday over those boys

What about Stevens new Girlfriend/penpal/granny who was writing to him whilst her husband was dying....wtf?!

Pity Brendan....Len for Lawyer of the year....what a crook....and his investigator crying over a blue ribbon?!?!

That TV style trial with 'post match analysis' daily where the players are asked questions on their performance is ridiculous. ...those trials were farcical with Hick Juries inevitably finding the men guilty despite the poor/tainted evidence and crooked cops

Young fella being questioned without a Lawyer or appropriate adult...cops over sitting right beside him...and the crooked as f**k hick judge ruling it admissible....mental!
Only in America
Im waiting for someone to do a similar documentary on the death and aftermath of Richie Barron, we have our share of corrupt cops.

Peroni, Pilsner Urquell or Tsing Tao.....why bother with anything else??
Speaking to a make who has about 10 pubs in north england and they wanted to bring in Peroni, the distributors only allow it sold if it was a pound dearer than the next lager as they want to market it as a 'premium' brand. Such a load of w**k for the Fosters of italy.

Id say a lot has to do with the type of fella the professional lad is as well. If he was a prima donna coming back im sure there would be lots of bad blood but he was one of the lads who made good and a good club man im sure there would be more good feeling
I dont remember a thread like this when Sean O'Brien togged out for his junior clubteam ;)

GAA Discussion / Re: Brian Kerr blames GAA
« on: October 27, 2015, 08:53:42 AM »
Former Republic of Ireland manager Brian Kerr blames GAA and Hurling for creating Irish football's "mongrel dog" playing sytle.

"Why are they technically better? I think our culture is contaminated by the fact that we have a lot of rugby and a lot of soccer and we've too much Gaelic as well and hurling."

He claims that Irish teams will always struggle to match their European counterparts in the skill stakes because of the the school taught mostly Gaelic and hurling, but not soccer.

"That's had an impact on the style of the game in Ireland and that nobody comes from a culture where it's only and specifically soccer and the influence is we just play it like we should play it."

"We're a bit of a mongrel and we're going through a stage I'd call Netherlands-Lite. We're all playing 4-3-3 at underage and we'll all be members of the non-tackling union in future. It's all nice, nice, nice but jaysus don't put any passion into it."


WHAT DO YOU THINK, GUYS? I'm not posting here to create a fire or any sort of between different Irish sports. But this has to be cleared, that GAA and Hurling shouldn't be blamed for other's fault.
Why didnt you post the whole article instead of taking certain quotes out of context. It was taken from the Second Captains podcast and they were discussing the technical levels of the Balkans compared to us and he put Gaelic Football , Hurling and Rugby in the same pot to explain the different culture irish kids have playing different sports at a young age and the different  aim of the games ( in his view, from soccer being possession based to the others main aim getting to the other end of the pitch as soon as possible)

I think so. Romania and Georgia are certainly worthy of consideration for the 6 nations. They are no worse than Italy were when they were invited in. I wonder about the likes of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga though. It might be an unpopular thing to say, but I thought they were disappointing in this tournament. Japan were a breath of fresh air, but the rest of the pacific islands (I know I'm taking a liberty including Japan in that term) were poor. But is their an appetite down under to help them? New Zealand, for all their achievements and standing, have raped those countries for years for their best players. Would they really like to see Samoa, Tonga and Fiji given a better tournament to play in? Would they let them into an expanded Rugby Championship?

I have my doubts.
Have they though? The majority of the All Blacks 'islanders' were actually born in New Zealand and the Likes of Tonga/Samoa and Fiji have loads of New Zealand born players playing for them.
