General discussion / Re: Online dating advice
« on: July 02, 2022, 10:01:04 AM »
I used a social media dating messaging device and met a girl from Cushendall on it. We went out for a few pints after having messaged for about 29 weeks. It went well but I sort of antagonised her eventually and he threatened to have me shot. Apart from that it was a great experience and people shouldn't be hung up on dating devices. I would bring a friend though when meeting up and get them to sit adjacent from you reading a paper etc but have a weapon concealed.

Transvestite or transgender? Wouldn’t be into that but good luck to you.

Walsh could got a black card for that, but Morgan probably not lucky to see the line, blindsiding him before that.

Morgan was obviously holding Walsh and wrestled him tot he ground. Unfortunately for him Walsh was too strong and flipped him over and completely pinned him down. Morgan wasn’t strong enough to do anything about it. If both had been given yellows for it Morgan would’ve been off an deservedly so.

A replay the first option if there is a free weekend.  Could easily have played Armagh v Galway  again this Saturday.
Rules are clear and the same for all so they couldn't play it again next week
Hypothetically where would it be played next weekend??
And the winners out the following weekend again!
Kicking the ball off the ground was a fundamental skill for years till these frees from the hand came in. Now only goalies know how to kick a ball off the ground.
Penalties have existed in Gaelic football since....?

Penalties to punish fouls not penalty shootout to decide a knock out championship match.

Plenty of provincial grounds could have hosted the replay on Saturday or Sunday.   A week rest so be it however that is on HQ with their congested season and its only going to get worse next year with 4 groups of 4 to find the last 8.

The congested season has been great and penalties are a great way to decide games like yesterday where around 100 minutes have been played. Penalties are a test of nerve and skill. Galway showed great skill and nerve with the quality of their penalties.

In your opinion.

Lol, that’s all everyone is giving on here.

Least amount of hand passes........

Or a big melee at the end

Your second suggestion was made in jest but made me think the team with the best discipline could be rewarded in the event of a draw after extra time. Every foul could be recorded as a point, every yellow card 3 points, black card 4 points and red cards 6 points. Team with the fewest penalty points goes through. Fourth official could keep tabs on penalty points. Still think penalties are better though.

Hope Seán Kelly gets his suspension over-turned and is available for the semi-final.

How he was sent off and Comer wasn’t is shocking.

As a Derry man I’d like to see Kelly get off also. He doesn’t look a dirty player and it didn’t look like he did much. Hopefully both teams at full strength and let the best team win.

Ref got it right. Reckless, dangerous challenge.

Looked very harsh. Need to see it again.

I think it's a great competition. Will be interesting to see how the most prominent teams do in the League next year.
And Westmeath should put it up to Cavan.

Totally agree with it being a great competition. I would tweak it slightly though to have some kind of back door or group system to ensure teams don't end up with just one game. It has worked out brilliantly for Westmeath and Cavan but it probably wasn't that worthwhile for teams knocked out in round 1. It should be a really good final.

Joe Bidens America has Covid vaccines for 6 months olds  (who don’t need it ) but no baby formula.
Sums up the worst administration of all time .
Worse than the last one?
how are things globally and internally? make up your own mind.

Biden has don quite a good job considering the hand he was dealt and the divided state of the country caused by the deliberate stoking of divisiveness by his predecessor.

This could be the pick of the quarter finals. Two really attacking teams going at it in the wide open spaces of Croke park. Hopefully both teams lack of experience in croke park doesn’t lead to too many nerves and they settle down quickly. This will definitely be tight but both teams will see it as a great chance to progress. Hopefully Derry can get over the line by a point or 2.

It’s also interesting that they’ve gone with all the division 2 teams on the Saturday and all the division 1 teams on the Sunday.

Which one of the two corner forwards is from south derry marty? :-)

Ok 2...out of 30 - minor and senior.

Actually, probably V Galway, there'll be 29.

Great young talent in mid-field from Galway - born and bred in south Derry I hear.

from 2 north derry men to 29? bold prediction

I think i'll be backing clare if that's the case 8)

Ryan McNicholl did the cruciate or he would’ve been there as captain. The 2 corner forwards are north Derry also. Dungiven will certainly produce a number of minors in the next few years, they’ve some decent teams coming through.

For years losing finalists do not do well with a very quick turn around

That’s why they should have been drawn against each other. It would’ve been fairer as they’d all have been coming off a defeat. The 4 round 1 qualifier winners could’ve been drawn against each other, they’d all have been coming off a win.

Who’s that panelist on RTE with O’Rourke and Cavanagh?  A complete one trick pony. Hopeless

She's hard to listen to, RTE must have a gender quota in play .  Wouldn't be a fan of the two bucks alongside either.

They have such terrible punditry

Was thinking the same thing myself. Additionaly Sean Cavanagh comes across a bit smug for my liking.
He's always getting sly digs in Cavanagh

He’s a dismal pundit. Has anyone here ever laughed at one of his attempted jokes. He tries them all the time too and he just isn’t funny. Pathetic analysis from him also, he never adds anything insightful.

All the provincial losing finalists beaten in the qualifiers. I had a strong feeling that might happen and it’s why I think the qualifiers need a tweak. The four first round qualifier winners should be drawn against each other to produce 2 quarter finalists. The 4 provincial final losers should be drawn against each other to also produce 2 quarter finalists. Those results over the weekend show the difference in coming into a game off the back of a win compared to a defeat.
