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.
reminds me about the joke about the fella who.is stopped at a UDA checkpoint

--Are you Protestant or catholic?
-I am a Jew
- Are you a Protestant Jew or a catholic Jew?

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

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.

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

Even Laoislad wouldn't do that!
Do what? Cheer for one random golfer over another random golfer?

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

He regularly flies friends to the US too. My colleague knows some of them, or at least pretends he does but it is plausible as he's from Holywood, in his 20s and went to Sullivan.

Look the guy seems very self assured and intelligent.... confidence isn't a problem so I'd assume peer pressure isn't an issue either... do you feel the need to keep your friends happy all the time? Or do you feel the need to be yourself? Maybe just maybe he does things he wants to do because that's what he wants, I know that's a crazy thought, I mean what dick would do that eh?

Peer pressure?? Huh?
I was talking about social norms within his social group, we all adhere even strive to attain those to gain social status no matter how intelligent or how confident we are, in fact it probably feeds confidence rather than vise versa.

Anyway as I said Im guessing that its a social norm within his group of friends (like a lot of middle class North Down as you point out) to appear apathetic to the constitutional question and the more apathetic you are the better. But Rory has now trumped the lot with the ultimate in sovereign apathy, he turned down a place at the Olympics because he doesn't identify with it.... ;D ;D ;D. Its just smacks of trying to hard to be honest.

Hold on... he didn't wanna go to the Olympics cause he's scared of offending his mates? His mates like?

He's in a position to be the fuckin Mufasa of ALL his (real) mates. Unless you meant he was worried about annoying Niall Horan? Then I'd buy it.

They're hardly gonna be mates if he offends them now are they no matter how many private jets he flys them about in? Besides Id already clarified that its the fashionable thing to be in North Down social circles

Im open to other suggestions as to why he really decided not to go to the Olympics, but this latest attachment thing is about as unbelievable as his Zika excuse
