GAA Discussion / Re: Would you call this year a failure for tyrone
« on: August 13, 2019, 12:11:59 PM »
Of course it was a failure for Tyrone. We set out to reach an All Ireland final and fell short. Donegal may see their season as a success as J70 is trying to explain but clearly Tyrone’s ambitions are a little higher than that. Success and failure are very much relative, for the likes Derry, for example, it’s been a massively successful season getting promotion from div 4 is a huge achievement for them and I think they even won a championship match so they’ll be dancing in the streets of Coleraine about that. On top of this, they’ve also got the imminent departure of Mickey Harte to warm their cockles during the winter months. For Tyrone, there’s no shame to say that failing by a kick of the ball to reach an All Ireland is deemed a failure as it shows how far we have come as a county in the past 20 years or so. And also it shows the very high esteem others hold our county by suggesting this is failure.
;D ;D I enjoyed that post, nearly as much as the game on Sunday.

Big crowd.
Is that the worst AI semi final attendance in recent years in what would have been classed as a perfect rivalry? I genuinely was shocked at the attendance

Cheers for all the advice. I honestly haven't a clue what to do with babies. Never been around them much at all. The first two months sound frightening now that it's up here in front of me.
You'll be grand. Having only 1 to look after is easy enough, it's when the 2nd and 3rd come along the shit really hits the fan...
Agreed. It was only when our second came along that I realised I had more time than I thought when we had just the one.
I can't imagine what it's like when you have more than 2 smallies.
I actually found the opposite! Well more so when the 2nd one got to 18 months and up. The two wanes would keep one another company, and the two adults could actually get 10 mins to chill out. When it was one child they need constant attention. Now 3 is a whole different ball game!

Kyrgios is a bell end. Find it bizarre that people think he is great and funny. Cant understand why Tennis puts up with these guys and doesnt just boot them off the tour. If people think his antics are entertaining then why dont they just watch WWE or something.
I don't think hes great and funny but his antics are seriously blown out of proportion. Its because he goes against the grain of the image of tennis being an elite toff sport that the ruling bodies want to maintain. His behavior wouldnt garner much attention in most other sports. As Johnnycool says takes all sorts.

I don't think there is anything wrong with the underarm serve.
No doubt he is a bit of knob though, but as much as I like Rafa he can slow it up something fierce, and gets away with it when lesser known players would be punished.

VAR needs to be written off as a failed experiment. Yes to goal line tech, no to VAR.

The problem isn't VAR, it's the rule. She was offside. VAR allowed the ref to make the correct decision.

The real question is whether that should be the correct decision.
Thats a fair point. With VAR the attacker no longer gets the benefit of the doubt. If using VAR for offside they should go back to the clear daylight rule IMO. It will mean more goals as well.

Not sure how accurate this is but with Rashford's new deal United have 5 of the top ten best paid players in the PL. Surprised there are not more Chelsea players in there to be honest

Where is Aguero on that list? I find that hard to believe that he isn't near the top.

Dublin are below the level they were at for the last few years. They were well out of the picture in the league - and Jim Gavin didn't throw it at all - and the last two championship performances have been sloppy. There are a load of players getting on in years and not at the same level they were - Mick Fitzsimons, Philly McMahon and Cian O'Sullivan are all well past their best - the Brogans, Flynn and Connolly are gone and the players who have replaced them, good as they are, are not in the same all-time elite class.

When Dublin were in their absolute pomp with those players, between 2013 and 2017, Donegal beat them and Mayo and Kerry pushed them to the absolute limit in some of the greatest matches ever played.

Kerry, Mayo and Donegal are all westerly counties with populations between 130k and 160k with a high rate of emigration and poorly located economically.

Kildare and Meath have significant advantages that those counties do not have, and yet those other counties seriously challenged or beat the best Dublin team of all time.

How did they do that?

And if they did, how is it that people suddenly think this current Dublin team is unchallengable?

Kildare, Meath, Galway, Down, Tyrone, Armagh, Cork - all of those counties have the resources to do what Kerry, Donegal and Mayo have done over the last six or seven years.
But none of these counties have the resources to do what Dublin have done, do they?

Rough mess now the whole thing

Boy A case for me was simple, overwhelming evidence against him, his defence was terrible, should have plead guilty.

Dont know on Boy B.... defo guilty of a few very serious crimes but really I am not sure about murder.
Could be wrong here Joe, but I don't think there is any benefit to the suspect for pleading guilty to murder in the ROI.
Secondly, I'm not sure what crimes you think boy B could be found guilty of other than murder. He was either going to get done for murder or nothing at all.

On McCann incident... defo did not kick on head that was was down to mchugh pushing mccann.
Not sure what his hands were doin around the face shouldnt been there but it was not an eye gouge and was not a fish hook...his fingers were closed. Hands shouldnt have been up there tho it happened very fast.


Brolly rabbitting on about the brendan rodgers incident again which was clearly accidental. And how is anyone gonna rip out a man's teeth and gums with his fingers I'll never know :) Coming out with shite like that boy is gonna get what is coming to him is dangerous talk. O, Rouke and his manliness  ::)
CCcc will spring to action now tho since the tail has wagged it.
FFS ::) Delusional or what. Catch a grip. Fair play to most of the trying supporters on here who seen it for what it clearly was, disgraceful behaviour.

Ha justice. Good enough for him
