Too many people going out of their way to be offended just like those dicks hounding James McClean over his stance on the poppy.

I 100% agree. Couldn't give one iota who he or anyone identifies themselves as.
I'm not offended by him at all,I just don't like him. It's nothing to do about where he is from or what flag he waves or if he thinks of himself as being British or Irish. I just don't like him.Some people can't seem to get their heads around that.

How does the man sleep at night!

No I'm not offended by McIlroy - I just wanted to understand his thinking.

Craig from Strickly calls end every sentence with the word "Darling". I'd like to see him try that on a gaelic pitch.
You should start a tread about that.

Though I've been critical of some of McIlroy's words and actions, I'm not in the least bit offended.

If it's a personality thing, that's different. For me, it's his haircut ;)

Would you dislike him enough to shout against him coming down the stretch in the Masters against say some random Yank?

So the lad doesn't want to be marked out as a member of one of the two main tribes, and effectively alienate half of the community up here? Fair play to him.I reserve my contempt for plastic wannabes like Ruth Dudley Edwards.

Clip about Rory on the news tonight - seems like he is playing with Calloway irons tomorrow. Has he used Calloway in the past?

He's from these shores! So surely you would want him to beat any yank?

Kinda illogical reasoning from Rory
Hundreds of Olympians compete for countries that they arent attached to for various reasons, he could have competed for himself, the sport or whatever. A half decent interviewer could have put that to him but I suspect that he hasn't really thought it through that much.

By trying to not being political he is ironically being political. Now he may feel no attachment to either flag or state or whatever that's fair enough but it isnt really a reason not to compete in a competition.

I suspect that the real reason was he didnt want to offend his mates and/or in his circle of friends its the vogue thing to be unattached to either flag and the more unattached you are the cooler you are so he's just going with that.

His mates?? The guy lives in the states ffs!! His friends would mainly be people on his team! Other golfers on the circuit and his girlfriend! He's here maybe 3/4 times a year I'd imagine and golfing the rest of the year
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)
