Is a 12-28 record what passes for turning it around in Chicago? Fox, like Jeff Fisher before him, is one of the coaches I’m continually amazed stays employed.

Sure just google the info about Chicago's last five seasons and the changes that happened and you will soon be an expert on Da Bears under Fox just like you are now an Auburn alum!!

Eh? I’ve actually attended Auburn games.

A general who served on the frontline in the battle of Omagh.

He did indeed :) He never backed down from a row but thankfully he overcame his disciplinary issues. If only Connolly could learn from him.
by the reaction on twitter u would think Ronaldo retired

They expected 450,000+ visitors.
if each viisitor spends an average of 2k what a boost to the economy it would have been.
Ireland is a very small country easy to get around

Have you tried to get from Letterkenny to Tralee?
bus to Dublin train to Tralee
And 10 hours after you set off you'd reach your destination. What's that - average of 50km/hr?
was there going to be games in Tralee and letterkenny featuring the same teams ? If not what's ur point.

You’re fooling yourself thinking this was anything close to a cash cow. The money we needed to host it was massive.
whatever about the tournament itself would showcasing the country to hundreds of millions of people on tv not be worth hundreds of millions of free advertising.

A goal (under) is only worth 2 points (overs) in this game though so we don't want to get too hung up on going for the net.

Given they have no keepers in Aussie Rules gosling is probably the best way to make up lost ground.
ireland should stick in an outfield player in goals too someone to carry out and create something not sure who but someone who can carry at serious speed .

Ireland should get their big men on edge of the square and pump it in long to them only time they looked dangerous play the old school game and go for goals

People attributed Chris Benoit's crimes to steroids at first but head injuries seems far more likely a cause. It doesn't do anything to exonerate Hernandez but it does help explain it and if anything makes it even more tragic.

When you see Tom Brady's wife slipping up and disclosing he had concussions that were never reported,  and him being both at the most protected position in football and totally financially secure, can you imagine what the lad with a vet minimum contract and no guaranteed money will do to avoid being reported for a head injury?

Could it NOT affect his guilt though? His diminished control of impulses, rage, decision making etc., after all, are directly related to what he did. It’s not like he got coked up and did it. He had an undiagnosed disease which unfortunately can only be detected post mortem. This stuff is going to pose difficulties for the justice system in the future, whether it’s athletes or combat veterans or whatever. “My client had X number of severe concussions. We fear he may have brain disease and cannot be proven, conclusively, beyond all doubt, to be fully responsible”.

If the case studies and research are there, how can the justice system ignore it? But if and individual can only be proven to be a sufferer post mortem...?
a lot of the liberals on here must have played a few seasons in the NFL

Get out of here with that US political terminology shíte.
should u not be watching Miami Ohio vs Toledo

I get that Hillary did some jiggery pokery to get the nomination but why is Trump looking for a DOJ investigation into it? Surely it's an internal DNC matter that should be investigated by themselves.

They probably thought they were doing the smart thing letting Hillary sail through when in reality Bernie would have done better than her against Trump. They need to get their system back to a fair one to have any chance in 3 years time!
this is not the front row of a rugby match with bill mclaren commentating

Trump is just as much a piece of shit as the Uzbek or the white right wing gun nut terrorists who've murdered how many Americans on the last 10 years.
Just as well "Gmac" wasn't in charge of British security in the 1970s or the Birmingham 6, Guildford 4, Maguires, Judith Ward etc would have been lynched immediately.
this is a lot different there is no grey area here he is guilty full stop should go straight to sentencing ,don't give him anymore publicity or waste any taxpayer money on him .

How can a judge preside over a fair trial when the president of the US is calling for the death penalty. Surely the Uzbek can plead that the 6th amendment has been violated, i.e. the right to an impartial jury
he rented a truck and drove on the sidewalk in Manhattan and tried to kill as many people as he could but u worry about a fair trial for this b**tard ,trump is expressing what most people think should happen to this piece of shit , would that not be a good signal to send out to other potential terrorists ?

F1 doesn't have a big profile in the US, it's like the soccer of motor racing. Big everywhere except the US. I'd be surprised if Trump notices, but we'll see. Maybe it'll draw a bit of attention to F1!
he won't have any problem taking the $ if he wins , a non national making a stand against what exactly ? Have some manners as a visitor to the country stand up or f**k of home .

Inequality knows no borders.
when he goes to China ,Bahrain , Russia,,Azerbaijan ,Singapore,Mexico,abu dhabi to race does he protest there about human rights violations ,treatment of women etc etc ? No because he knows he wouldn't be entertained for 5 seconds  . If he kneels he don't race is how would like it to be
