Fair enough so.

Still, a shitty way to decide a match.

Who sets the rules for free-kick shootouts after extra time?

Mullahoran and Banagher had to participate at the weekend, and both management said they werenít  in favour. Just wondered if it was ulster council or gaa hq who set the rules of this?

What would have been the penalty if both teams had have refused to take part in the shootout?

Ireland have the poorest selection of forwards Iíve ever known. Other than Shane Long, who else is there? I canít even name one.

While thatís not the only problem, itís still a big one.

Maybe the DUP will go away and come back with Graduated Response II.

While theyre at it, maybe they could tell us what Graduated Response I was.

Pete Shirlow on Sunday Politics said that unionists are now beginning to look at the union in economic terms, not as a question of sovereignty. It is time that those espousing a UI start making cogent economic arguments rather than calling for a border poll. Thats what will inform peoples voting intentions in a future referendum.

The fastest way to a UI was always going to be through economics.

Conversely - if the DUP were not so f**king thick and took this deal - then economics would be working for their union, not against it.

In the electorate here, there are two fringes, hardcore republican voters and hardcore unionists. They won't change their minds regardless of what happens. But there is a sizeable middle which could swing on *very stark* economic arguments.

If we crash out with no deal - then that middle group, irrespective of religion, will be economically envious of ROI and when folks are weighing up a fleg vs. food on the table, a border poll might not be such a bad idea.
If we got the deal - then we'd be in best of both worlds - and then it'd only be the fringe republicans voting for a UI as the rest would be economically better off and the risk not worth taking.

I get where you're coming from but using that same logic then why did they ever support Brexit in the first place? They are imperialist fantasists riddled with paranoia and fear and when they initially nailed their colours to the Brexit mast they were entering into an unknown in terms of how the process would pan out. I thought it was a bad move from them prior to Brexit and it has so transpired.

Before even reading the withdrawal agreement, their chief Brexit spokesman was comparing the EU to the IRA and stating that it was like receiving a punishment beating from them. It could well be as good as it gets for them at this stage though tribalism will ensure that they say 'no surrender' until the bitter end.       

Most people, DUP included, thought Brexit wouldnít happen. So they supported it thinking it would fail, but come out of it looking all British and patriotic. When brexit happened, they had to stick to it.

They didnít know how it would pan out. They still donít. But they still will persist with it no matter how stupid they look or how much damage they do to the economy and peopleís normal everyday lives.

Funny why this was removed yet councils every year pay to have bunting for the twelfth, and union flags flies all year round in town centres, and not a word about it.
They don't actually that was outlawed some time ago.

Someone better tell Ards and North Down then as they pay out for "festival" bunting in their annual accounts every year.

Who pays for this bunting if it isn't the councils?

Iíve seen plenty of towns in bunting for the twelfth. And the union flag flying all year in centre of town.
The bunting is put up by organised community groups, probably loyalist paramilitary influenced. I would say they get community grants as a way around the council actually doing the work.

If thatís the case, would they not need a permit to erect this bunting?

Each summer there are loads of examples of erecting flags in neutral areas, especially at road junctions or motorway/dual carriageway exits. They are never removed, nor are given approval in the first place. Just another example of putting those pesky taigs in their place.

Nolan is responsible for adding the fuel to keep the sectarian fires burning in the north.

He continually gives profile and airtime to Bryson and Allister and the likes. Bigots who have a 17th century mindset.

Moving the AI final forward by a few weeks was pointless, as county finals and now provincial ties are still being played at the same time.

Even if it doesn't their comments to businesses and the likes of farmers unions etc should surely be damaging.

However there is plenty to play out yet and these pricks always seem to come out on top is what worries me >:(

There has to be a time when people see them for what they are. Hopefully, hopefully, that time is now.

Youíd think. But a lot of their voters are as deluded as they are.

If this Brexit deal is passed, the DUP are well and truly screwed.

NI cut adrift from rest of uk (as they see it)
No hard border or restrictions on all Ireland trade
Screwed over by British government (in their eyes)
Made arses of themselves in front of the rest of UK
They donít trust/like or want to be in the EU
Reluctant to power share with SF at Stormont

Where do they go? Whatís their next move?

No surrender!Ē

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/foster-annoyed-at-ni-business-leaders-support-for-brexit-deal-1.3700531?mode=amp

The Democratic Unionist Party and its leader, Arlene Foster, have expressed considerable irritation that Northern Irish business leaders have backed the draft EU-UK Brexit agreement.
Ms Foster has privately warned that business people were in danger of being exploited for political reasons amid the current turmoil over Brexit, it is understood.

Ms Foster privately told chamber members she was unhappy with the attitude taken by business, and that they did not understand the threat the agreement posed to the union of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.On

Her arrogance has no bounds, how she remains as the de facto leader of unionism is baffling.

Because unionists are arrogant?

And irrational, deluded, nonsensical, etc...
