Where are all the t**sers who said Sinn Fein taking their seats in Westminster didn't matter anyway??!!

DUP in a f**king Coalition Government??!!

Time for Sinn Fein to get real and think about taking their seats in Westminster lest we get tramped into the ground again. Saying a meaningless oath is much less an issue for me than letting the DUP run amok!

Sinn Fťinís absence badly felt tonight again in Westminster!!

You'd think Sky invented all this.
Sky's analysis, the show format, pundits and commentary team is a rip off from TV3.

As mentioned by GBB the analysis is excellent, Peter C is incisive and informative   but the rest of the coverage is corny in a contrived fashion.

Ah come on now, you expect us to believe tv3 ever did anything innovative.
Question for the Galway lads-how come it has taken Ian Burke so long to establish himself on the Galway team?He really only made the starting 15 against Donegal last year.I saw him playing for Mayo in New York 2 years ago and he was by a distance  the best player in every game despite often being double and tripled marked.He has that rare ability to always do the right thing when he has the ball whether it is to lay it off or take the shot on.If I was giving advice to any young player on good forward play he would be the first example I would give .An absolute gem of a player

Best chance is if may is ousted. Far from beyond the realms of possibility. Then it would depend who got in as they could be worse. Big chance of no deal currently.
If she goes she'll be replaced by a pro Brexit looney and that'll be worse. At least she supported Remain and is trying to get as soft a Brexit as possible. Corbyn's behaviour is pretty shocking in my opinion. He should be Remain through and through as this is the only way to protect workers rights and human rights. However his lukewarm approach is making it easier for the Brexiteers. Rees Mogg mind you is a particularly abhorrent piece of work. Sooner he gets his toffee nose comeuppance the better. Him and his feckin nanny

In my opinion what's wrong is the competition rules, not the games rules. The reason we had so many shit games before the 'super 8s' was because too many of those games had 2 teams at differing levels, and the reason the first week of the 'super 8s' were so bad is because it is not a knock out, in relation to Donegal Dublin, there is no way Donegal would have allowed Dublin play keep ball for 15 min if a defer meant their summer was over, they would have been forced to come out and take a man each, if they have designs on winning an AI (or if anyone has for that matter) they'd want to be fit enough to force a turn over. The next 2 weeks I would anticipate more competitive fare.

Failing that once the the coverage right come up again as available to the wireless only.
GAA Discussion / Re: Roscommon v Armagh

There's probably a 'super 6' currently woth Roscommon and kildare making up the numbers. The rest are going to provide competitive games.

Last year at the same stage we lost to Tyrone by 18 points. It's hard to make an argument that we were better equipped this year to give an account of ourselves.

Armagh, Roscommon, Kildare are in the top 12, but not really able to mix it with the top 5 or 6.
I suppose thatís it, the rational each ref used.. The implementation of the rules is extremely subjective, in most sports. Some refs are less formal and are looser in their interpretation, which I donít mind at all. Consistency, as you say, is lacking. In saying all that however an intercom to team should be able to work it out within the first 10/15 mins and adapt accordingly.
i am more referring to the inconsistency within each ref's own interpretation of the swarm tackle, for instance the ref would penalise the Rossies then allow the Tyrone swarm, to my viewing both sides' swarm tackles were fouls.
In our game the ref swung both ways with erratic decisions,  fortunately (brave enough) to swing our way  near the end when the game was still in the balance :)

2-20,2-16,2-22 and 2-18 is what Donegal scored in their games in Ulster this year. One of the main reasons why Dublin won last Saturday was because they stopped Donegal from scoring goals but  Donegal still managed to score 0-16.  The main question here is how much will Donegal score this weekend against a Roscommon team that conceded 5-43 in their last two games?

Would not want to disrespect Donegal after the hammering we got from Tyrone, but they put up big scores in Ulster against teams we would put big scores up against (base this based on our league final against Cavan, and R4 v Armagh). Of course we concede way more to these type of teams than Donegal ever would. Still, I would be surprised if thereís more than 4 points in it either way.

Did Mpabbe not take a goal of him in one game? That shot was going in.
