General discussion / Re: most famous person you have met
« Last post by supersarsfields on Today at 12:44:06 PM »
Definition of famous on this thread is a bit too wide, imo. To qualify as famous, Shirley, a sports person has to be recognisable beyond the boundaries of those who are interested in his / her sport. For example, George Best, Roy Keane, Martin O'Neill, Brian O'Driscoll, Ronan O'Gara, Sonia O'Sullivan are people whose name and face would be known to many who have little interest in football, rugby, athletics or whatever. I've little interest in GAA, so alot of the names of 'famous' people I'm reading on here mean nothing to me. May as well claim that you've met someone from Big Brother 6. Just saying, like.

This site must be useful for you then.
I'm on the non gaa discussion part of the forum - there's a clue there - which I find enjoyable rather than useful.  The political & religious debates and the humour are worth looking in for. JOG - no particular reason why I'm not keen on GAA, I just prefer rugby and soccer. I never liked hurling, I enjoyed playing gaelic football at school, but I was always a soccer player first and foremost. I always took an interest in the international rugby games, but since I got too old to play any sport, I've found that I've enjoyed watching rugby more and more. I'm now at the stage where I prefer watching rugby to soccer and I wouldn't miss an Ulster match at Ravenhill. Drink probably plays a part in that too.  ;)

It's the none Gaa section of a GAA website. I just would have thought most people on this website would have an interest in GAA primarily. If not, would you not be better going to the likes of politics.ie. where some of the primary content is political and religious debate. Not that I'm chasing you or anything. I just find it strange that someone would go to a niche website just to get their general section.
But given it's a GAA website, can you not understand how the definition of famous would include GAA stars, given the posters interests.

I don't get all this fuss about Lee Keegan getting off the red card. He was sent off for kicking an opponent. The ref obviously taught he kicked Buckley and he was helped come to this conclusion in real time by Walsh's carry on. To be honest I taught he had kicked him as well. The ref puts in a report stating this. It then transpires that he did not kick him. You can't have the ref coming back and saying " well actually I sent him off for an attempted kick". just because he seen a replay of the incident.

I actually commend Coldrick in this situation for reporting the incident exactly how he taught he saw it and not changing things around to make himself look good.

Isn't the attempt no enough to give a red card?

But he didn't give it for the attempt. He gave it because he taught he kicked him.  It can be debated all night long whether he attempted to kick him or not. I'm inclined to give the player the benefit of the doubt considering Buckley was beside him and didn't take any avoidance action and Keegan still missed but thats just my opinion but the facts are he was sent off because the ref taught he kicked him

If the refs are teaching players how to kick one another there's something seriously wrong in the GAA!

Listening to all this guff during the week and , especially, what is being said about them I'd say the lads will be fairly fired up for this one now.

Yes but if the abuser had been a cleric (as was the case in Claudy) the Police might have simply moved it on.

Indeed! He's had a few rants at the GAA as well which have been basically ignored so if Galloway has some success fair play to him.

Also the LAD website appears to be down?

LADs Facebook page was taken down the other night. They have a new one
www.facebook.com/LADflegBelfast 
They have also started a website - prob due to Facebook being taken down every now and again
www.ladfleg.com

It looks like the guys behind ladfleg have finally being exposed. Widely named on social media as Gary Kirby, allegedly.

Wow, didn't think Limerick hated the Gaa that much.
