General discussion / Re: 9/11 What really happened to WT7?
« Last post by Milltown Row2 on Today at 05:38:32 PM »
There was a load of records in WT7 that needed destroying to get rid of evidence. The day before 9/11 it was announced a deficit of many trillions in the defense department. Next day, it's all forgotten.

Watched a show years ago about WT7, and noticed they retracted this "pull it" statement. Oh we meant to pull the firemen out. In the film, they referred a couple of times that we use this "pull it" to mean what they wanted it to come across as. Bloody nonense.

The military failed to react on 9/11 because they weren't meant to. It was planned to happen.

So they planned this in a day?? So how many people were involved in this and why after 15 years there is not one shred of evidence, real evidence that it was allowed to happen by the USA government??

For those who believe the controlled demolition theory, when were the explosives planted?

No but as ive stated plenty of people round me did. Because I didn't see it did it not happen?

No, it does not mean that.
It just means you cannot give a fair account or a respectful opinion on what did or did not happen.

It does if I trust the people around me, why would they make it up. They all had the same version of events, as did all the Clonoe players who I spoke to that night. But hey my account is unfair and disrespectful.
This is all very cute with the loyal trust. But i suggest you source out the video of the match. You will see that all these people that you trust so much either have poor eyesight or are not that trustworthy after all.  ;D

Punter is out injured :) They're auditioning for punters now. The punter will stay on the roster to do the holding duties, so I guess he's now a 'holder' :) Nice work if you can get it :)

Why should a ref not blow his whistle when a man is fouled and is disadvantaged by being so fouled?
"Letting the game flow" is grand up to a point but the Ref's job is to apply the rules.

Why? Because such is the nature of gaelic football the tackle is very much open to interpretation. A whistle happy referee will referee by blowing at minimal contact whereas a referee who lets the game flow will allow more physical contact in the tackle. Both can claim justification but I'd much prefer to see the latter as it makes for a far better spectacle. Pat McEneaney used to be the best at refereeing in this manner.

But there's been plenty of criticism. Did all our Olympians get slated if they didn't win a medal, of any sort? Your comments on their fitness is wrong, your comparison to Olympian teams is an unfair one and comparing them to men's football is just daft.

But the fact is that women's football is regularly compared favourably to men's football by supporters of the game.

We regularly hear stuff like "the women train just as hard as the men" and that women's games
"were better than most games in the men's championship".

So people who make those comparisons can't have it both ways.

Why on earth would I slate our Olympians for not winning a medal? The Olympics is the pinnacle of sport worldwide. The only thing you can ask from our Olympians is that they go out and perform to the best of their ability. To get there is an achievement in itself.

If what was on offer on Sunday was the best of those players' ability, it's a sad reflection on the state of women's football. Of course it wasn't the best of those players' ability. It isn't unlocked because in comparison to the men's game, it's effectively a hobby, so of course the best of those players' ability will not be displayed.

This was posted on here a week ago today. There has been 2 replies in that week and this thread was falling off the 2nd page.

Amazing how an incident this serious gets so little coverage yet how many pages and phone calls to Joe Duffy over incidents in club football in Tyrone a few years back.

Oh very well played...I mean that has to go down as the comment of the month. Give yourself a big pat on the back and get some rest as I suspect you've used up all your energy coming up with that one.

Unlike Screen!

Oh we're Screen now....very good.
To respond to your comment suggesting that Ballinascreen didn't play very well, one could argue that all of the teams who have be beaten to date perhaps didn't play very well.
So, your point is what?

It's very disappointing to see the sexist undertones from Sid and brick.
Complete nonsense and it's telling you have to play the sexism card - I've already said there are many sports in which women can rightly be called "elite".

Excusing poor standards because they are women is sexist, and that's exactly what you're doing.
