Cavan / Re: Official Cavan GAA Thread
« on: November 27, 2019, 10:54:09 PM »
I'm sorry but this doesnt happen in counties that are serious about winning. There is a deficiency in our players, they dont want to do what is needed to succeed (which is their right).

I wonder what a dedicated stalworth like Martin Reilly thinks, hence few years left to win that Ulster and these boys pretty much have made sure that wont happen this year.

Winning Ulster? Realistically we are a marquee forward, a free taker and a total of about 5/6 positions short of being a team of real contenders for Ulster. Short of that we would need a massive slice of luck to land the Anglo Celt cup.
 These 3 lads are a massive loss especially for the league which has been a happier hunting ground for us over the last few years but as far as championship goes, without more help, these lads are not winning an Ulster medal. Too many players go missing in the hard games. If they feel burned out then you have to respect that, hope they go away and find the gra again. It's not ideal granted and for a small county the loss will be more pronounced but plenty of top players walk away for a bit. Some with AI medals in their pockets. It's a huge commitment playing IC and the grass might look greener on the other side. But it's a very short career so hopefully they miss it badly when they're away and are chomping at the bit to come back.
 In the meantime we have to get on with it and be positive. It's a chance for more players to step up to the mark when the chips are down. It's going to be physical and tough in the league next year and there are now less hiding places on the field. If the voids are filled then long term we could end up with a stronger team.

It's a vicious circle. When you start to think and believe like you say above then you will win  nothing. I've bo doubt our mentally weak players think exactly like that and that's why they leave like this. Dessue Moan retured today after 16 years I think with Monaghan. That's why monaghan win a few Ulster's and we win  nothing. Sickens me to say it

4 f**king away games yet again for cavan, is there no way a bit of fairness could somehow be included in the draw.

The league schedules work on a two-year cycle.
Cavan will have 3 away games in 2021.
Cavan had 4 away games in 2019 and 3 in 2018.

That's how it works when you stay in the same league. If you get relegated or promoted there's no guarantees.

We've had 4 home games once in 4 years.

What's the issue, here's a thing, if you can't be arsed travelling - don't, issue resolved.

The issue is you are a moron. Now would you ever piss off back to Hoganstand where you belong

Killian Clarke, Dara McVeety & Conor Moynagh not part of the Cavan squad this year.

Massive misses for Cavan, they could struggle this year.

I am afraid the Cavan Jersey doesn't mean enough to our boys. You'd think after getting to an Ulster final they'd push on but no they dont want to do what is required.

Did anyone hear something about a well known political Cavan family being involved?

There's a well known political Cavan family?

Apparently so. Next week where is Shergar, who shot the Pope and what was Sean Quinn doing as the grassy knoll.

There is more than a chance that none of the above mentioned are squeaky clean, especially with the stakes so high. But there is a big difference in being part of a plan to make it difficult for outside investors to come in, and the kind of treatment metered out to Kevin Lunney. Someone was paying someone to carry out highly illegal acts of destruction and thuggery. Someone with both means and motive. Time will tell just who was the instigator behind this long reign of terror.....because someone was!

Theres a difference but not a big difference. Bullets were sent in the post, people received death thrests. There was a truck rammed into reception and attempts to set it alight. Another difference was the media or politicians weren't too interested and outside the local papers very little was said. Grant no one was attack physically as far as I recall but probably because those attacked departed quickly enough.

These men were Quinn loyalists at the time, whats wrong with that. At the time they were acting in the best interest of their employer. Things then changed, roles were reversed and these men ended up heading a new management team that investors could put their trust in....which resulted in jobs in the area being secured.

Surely you are not insinuating any of the current directors in QIH had any role in instigating anything improper or worse illegal at that time? Yes/No. If the answer is No then I fail to see the point you are trying hard to make!

Is that the only conclusion you draw from that. Attacks going on today, you have no problem saying it's all big bad Sean Quinn. Attacks went on back then and it's nothing to do with McCartin or Lunney or any of those guys. Sure they were only " quinn loyalists" who just happened to buy the assets on the cheap following said violence. No that was all Sean Quinn too.

Maybe we need Paul William's to write an article about how he knew they were in it all along, give everyone nicknames.

Maybe not the right place for this but my cub plays underage for a team and someone has put in Whatsapp group about a collection for the underage mentors for taking teams throughout the year , and a paypal account to pay into. Now maybe it’s just me but I have never heard the like of it and I know if I was a mentor I wouldn’t take a penny

Has anyone else come across anything like this ?

It is likely not to give to the coach’s as such, more like to pay for a meal and a night out for them which they likely deserve at the end of the season

As a coach all I would like at the end of the year is a thank you. Bad idea collecting money although I'm sure the thought behind it was good.

Paul Williams, I'll say no more. He's a late comer to this story but now of course he knows everything. Seems its a gang now, what about the mysterious paymaster?
Bog standard stuff Itchy
Read the article, there's the gang, the bagman and the paymaster.
Williams has been writing about Sean Quinn/family  attacks on QIH and Anglo for years, he was also involved in the release of the Anglo Tapes and once publicly lauded as a hero by Sean Quinn

I dont care what Sean quinn or anyone else thinks of William's. As far as I'm concerned hes a slime ball. Made his money by glorifying drug dealers and gangsters.

Anyone getting phone calls from tech support scammers lately? I got one yesterday. I usually don't answer to obvious fake numbers, but it was a slow day at work so I thought I'd play along. He was an Indian lad working from a busy office by the sounds of it. Claimed to be working for AT&T. Talked me through some PC stuff (I have a Mac, so I had to do some googling as he talked to see what I was supposed to be seeing on my screen). After we got as far as the event viewer I couldn't think of a way of stringing him along any longer, so I just asked "Look, do you just want to skip to the part where I give you my social security number and credit card information?"
Him: "Did I ask you to do that?"
Me: "No, but you're going to eventually, aren't you?"
Him: "I'm calling from AT&T, not some random XYZ company..."
Me: "Yeah, right."
Him: "Look, motherf***er, if you don't want to take part in this call, you're free to hang up any time."
Me: "Why are you doing this? Can you not get a real job? There are plenty of honest jobs out there, you don't have to earn a living by robbing people."
Him: "... and don't you dare waste my time. I don't need advice from you, so stick your advice up your a$$hole..."
Me: "I think you need to calm down, go home and re-think your life." - click -

Funny how quickly they become abusive once they realise you're on to them. I got one a few days ago from an Indian lady.
Her: "Hi, I'm calling about your vehicle's warranty which is expiring soon and would like to offer you a chance to renew it."
Me: "Which vehicle?"
Her "Uhhh, your Ford."
Me: "Which Ford?"
Her: "uuuuuh, Escape."
Me: "Oh, okay." (We have a VW Jetta, but she doesn't need to know that.)
Her: "So would you like to renew your warranty?"
Me: "What about the warranty on our other cars?"
Her: "Uh ... uh ... uh ..."
Me: "Are they expiring soon too?"
Her: "Uh ..."
Me: "Come on, tell me about my other cars, since you seem to know so much about them"
Her: "Uh ..."
Me: "What other cars have I got? You must have all that information in front of you"
Her (screaming): "You keep repeating yourself as if I can't hear you!" - click -

You are a genuis, you typed all that shite as if you are first it has ever happened to, its 2019, check your phone bill next month, these folk like to keep you talking whilst charging you a fortune a minute, you are as well to hang up.

You will have to explain that to me, how does he get charged for taking a call from a scammer and keeping the conversation going? I think every moment you have them on the phone is a minute less they are scamming some poor vunerable people. When that "Windows TEch Support" one was doing the rounds I used to manage to keep them on the phone for 10 mins at a time claiming my computer was restarting/freezing. It was funny to hear the frustration on the other end. My father got the same call and thought it was real and only he couldnt figure out how to follow your mans instructions then he would have been scammed.
