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

I would think him turning down the Olympics was a combination of things including the flag issue, the fact the Olympics really doesn't mean anything in golf, the zika issue and contract problems with him being a Nike ambassador and not being able to wear their gear when he was competing!!

All those things add up to a lot of hassle which he didn't really need so he pulled the pin. Who could argue with him either the way he finished off last season? Would you not rather have 10m in your sky rocket than an Olynpic medal in a sport that shouldn't be near the Olympics!

To be fair to McIlroy he could just follow Paddy Barnes' example!
I couldn't fathom Barnes decision given his background. Seems like Nationalists like the gongs now more than ever. I personally wouldn't bow to any manor woman, unless they were Japanese and bowing back. Did Mc Ilroy not get a gong last year?

I think this is a pretty fair summation screenexile.  As I posted earlier had he come out a couple of years ago and said I'm not comfortable with representing either team so I'm not going - fair enough, in fact that would show a bit of balls, and he's basically said this is now his position for 2020.  I would think there'll hardly be a word about it for the foreseeable.

However while it doesn't offend me, the sight of him with the symbol of a one party,sectarian, tinpot dictatorship, police state (rant over!) wrapped round his shoulders, does grate with me.
Thats exactly right, at least McGuigan wrapped a white flag around himself or was it a dove?

Most of yis that get annoyed about him probably don't know but hes been playing golf this morning.....

Decent start one off the lead currently after shooting a 67. He threatened a better round but showed signs of rustiness in the back nine.

Something like 7 of the last 8 years he's been in the top 5 for his first tournament outing of the year!!

Pity his odds are shocking!!

Here what are you talking about golf for back to slegging Rory. I reckon his big worry is if the DUP feck things up any more by the time Tokyo 2020 comes round representing GB wont even be an option lol

Yeah odds are low as it's a fairly weak field, the big names are playing in Hawaii

I think you've hit the nail on the head. He's brought up in a culture of supporting OWC and Ulster Rugby and his mates would all be british passport holders. (They're the people that want to know why they cannot vote Tory or Labour in local elections). So clearly in that environment Rory will have no affiliation whatsoever with Ireland or being Irish.

Which makes his delight at winning the Irish Open rather puzzling. His celebration looked pretty genuine to me.

I'd say there's a big number of nationalists / republicans on this board carrying British passports (though few would admit to it)
