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.

I know this is a serious thread but the line about some of them are even on this forum made me chuckle

I can't understand this craic of thinking Dublin are out of the running to win the league , do ye not think they are capable of winning all their remaining games ? Personally I think they will win it out and in style too.

The top two teams in Division 1 contest the National Football League final. The bottom two teams are relegated to Division 2.

If 2 teams end on one loss each and the Dubs win the next 4 games and have 2 losses they won't qualify

Mayo, Kerry, Galway and Ros all have superior losses to the Dubs . I don't think the Dubs are interested in the League this year

Superior losses?

Just saw Morgan's equalising point. What an effort. Get him into the HB line!

Shite performance over though, early days yet so hopefully it's a case of not putting a massive effort into the league.

He should be ashamed of himself for his antics at the end. Deliberately sticks his knee on the back of the Roscommon forwards head and then when heís pushed in the chest he goes down holding his face as if heís been hit. Shameful behaviour but Iím sure some of the Tyrone fans on here will stick up for him and wonít see any issues with it.
That's preposterous,  a utopian request. Feeling shame is not an option. Reaping great reward from face clutching antics is the stuff that merdals of honour are awarded for in Tyrone.

Not just Tyrone. Clare number 2 was at it last week. Probably see it in a lot of games

Of course itís still possible but I just donít see it happening. We play Donegal away and I donít see us getting anything there and I donít expect that 8 points would be enough, more likely 9.

We need to stay up, would be distaster for Armagh to go straight back down to Div 3 again.  Need to consolidate our place in this division and worry about promotion at another time ... I see 6 out of 8 points as being realistic given weíve 3 games at home.

I donít see us in a relegation battle. There have been infuriating aspects of our play in all 3 games. But a few players back and a wee run of home form and we will be ok and maybe a bit better than that. Donaghy was our biggest miss so hopefully he is available for the rest of the league. Burns could make a big difference to the full back line

2 from 6 sounds like relegation form but not after 3 games in this league this year

Agree about donaghy. Also, was good to see Paul Hughes get game time today

Armagh lost that game in the 1st half today. Just two points from the opening 3 games means Armagh aim is now to stay up instead of looking for promotion. Meath could well be promoted, when did they last play in Division one?

Thinknit said 2006 on the radio

Poor performance, promotion probably gone after that result today itís probably more likely that we are in a relegation battle, defensively we are just not good enough. This is the last year of McGeeneys contract and itís hard to see how he can get another one since we havenít really progressed anything if you base it on the 3 League results to date.

The easy out is to blame the manager. Meath have been playing division 2 football for a good few years now. Armagh are just up from division 3 - they were in division 3 when McGeeney took over. Maybe Meath at home are just about a better team at the minute.

Interestingly I can only think of Forker, Sheridan, Grugan and Campbell who would have started in the league game against Meath in 2016. That is some change in personnel.

Morgan?

4 games left and 3 at home. We could still go up. Hope we donít tho.
Hats off to the meath full backs cute hoorism. Going down with cramp with one point in itreally broke our momentum. Not a criticism. It was smart. I wish we would show some of that at times

Connolly back for Dublin. Sherlock gone. Are these reports true?
Sherlock gone does seem to be true.

Mossy Quinn publicising a picture of himself with Connolly attending Croker last weekend was an interesting one. Does seem like it's a toe in the water of Connolly coming back. He's not back training with the group yet, but I'd say the chances have gone from bleak to 50/50.

Although I believe himself and Gavin just don't get on, so still have to put that hurdle behind them and Connolly may have to accept role as super sub (or unused sub at times). So I wouldnt put the house on it just yet.

From the outside looking in Sherlock going seems like a shock. Would that be the case

The campaign against the Donegal Motion has begun.

As I see it it's a shite motion. Am I correct in saying that they only want Dublin to not be allowed nominate Croke park as their home venue? Let's call it what it is, Croke park is Dublins home venue and they should play their home game there. What should be happening is scrapping the "Croke park round" and changing it to "neutral venue". If Galway were drawn to play Kerry they shouldn't be dragged up to Croke park, a game like that should be in limerick. Kerry Dublin as a neutral round should be in thurles not Dublin. Croke park may well suit best for alot of the games but venues should be true neutral ones that is fairest on supporters travelling to games

This is a great idea

I initially thought Clarke was sent off wrongly. Not so sure now. As has been said there have been plenty of times the same thing happens and the player gets nothing. The Clare fella should be ashamed of his reaction tho. The two goals I couldnít say for sure. They look like they shouldnít have been given but hard to tell from those camera angles
