I definitely think that the Gaaboard is more accomodating to OWC follower's than the other way round...why is this? I registered an account on OWC only to have it deleted for making a light-hearted joke with regard to the vacant Manager's job (At the time). I just posted a message saying how I felt Joe Kernan should be in the running as he had a successful tenure with the Armagh team. lol. I had barely sent the message and some dick of an admin loses the bap with me!! Fcuk sake like. Take a joke. At least the users here seem to take abit of banter!  :P

It's all that dour Presbyterianism that has them that way.
You know - the absolute fear that someone somewhere might be enjoying something ;)

Youse boys are very quiet about the weekend revelation that your boss Howard Wells helped negotiate a lucrative £500,000 IFA deal with a ticketing firm while he was also in partnership with the successful company  ... a contract that was not put out to tender because the aformentioned Mr Wells decided - on his own initiative - that the aformentioned firm with which he was still in partnership with could do the job better than anyone else .... mmmm, no conflict of interest there, eh?

If by "youse boys" you mean those posters on this Board who are also fans of the NI soccer team, there is a thread on OWC where Wells comes in for severe stick all round for (what I suppose I must call) this alleged conflict of interest.

Oh and by the way, he also recommended the company in question to the FAI. Who awarded them the contract.

For the record, Howard Wells is about as popular with NI football fans as John Delaney is with their ROI counterparts!  :o

Orior got banned for typing two words on a thread asking what the new stadium should be named.......................orior wanted to name it 'the orange bowl' and was promptly banned. Those hoors have absolutely no sense of humour at all at all.

You cannot mention the GAA over there unless it is in the ' other sports, even gaa section'.

Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Poor old Orior - perhaps he just has the "wrong" sense of humour, since someone else suggested naming it the "Sands Siro" without getting banned!

And you can actually mention GAA in other sections if it's relevant*, but like this Board with its "Official Thread" policy, they like to keep it in one section.


* - It also helps if it is in derogatory terms!  :D)

Yes you can. Admittedly only if you're complaining about or slating the GAA though. ;D

What's the point?  You stifle debate by banning anybody that doesn't toe the party line ... bit like that funny wee moustached boyo who started World War II and is the same nationality as your beloved monarch

Not to sound like a Nazi here, but Hitler considered Austria part of a Greater Germany (thus the anchluss) and considered himself 100% German ... same percentage as the Sax-Coburg-Gotha-Windsors

You're not sounding like a Nazi, you're sounding like a tit. This is a thread about the Irish Football Association.  ::)

Now you're sounding like a Scandinavian, which is an advance, no doubt. Any relation to "Eric the Red", red hander?  ;)
