During the 2002 World Cup there was barely a sinner at the Derry v Donegal Ulster Championship game in Clones (at a time when attendances were good) as they were all watching the soccer against Spain. when it came to the crunch soccer won.

The GAA were still in foreign code ban mode back then.

True there are people on both sides of Soccer and GAA that hate the other. But there are way more these days who like both and are involved in both!

"I signed Glen Kamara for Arsenal when he was 13 ... it's great when these players who don't make it at big clubs still go on to have a career elsewhere"

For those of you not giving the vaccine to the kids, have you also prevented them from getting the 6 in 1, Rotavirus, Hib/MenC, MenB, 4 in 1 pre-school booster, MMR and HPV vaccines (I'm sure there are more!)?

How established are the 6 in 1, Rotavirus, Hib/MenC, MenB, 4 in 1 pre-school booster, MMR and HPV vaccines?

How many years are they around?

What are the dangers to children who don't get those vaccines in comparison to Covid 19 Vaccine?

So when did those vaccines come out? And who got them first?

Kerry have certainly raised the bar this season - I don't think Dublin will even beat them should they both be in a AI Final

Based on them hammering a Team who had to travel the length of the country for a Dead Rubber game?

Team game.
John Divilly has one or maybe even 2 AI medals.
Ciarán McDonald hasn't any.

Gaelic footballers are measured on AI medals. It's a snobbery thing, usually measured by counties who win AI's.

He has no Senior AI. Until he wins one he is just another inter-county football player.

What percentage of terrestrial TV viewership want in analysis? 15%?

Most don't care!

My wife the kids will watch sport. They will get emotionally involved. But they care little for analysis. Not unless there is a controversial decision or someone makes a mistake and it affect the result in a negative way to the result they wanted. And that's not analysis.

The rest is Punch and Judy.

A friend of mine's brother was born in January and he was born in December of the same year! They played underage on the same teams the whole way up! My mate is mildly bitter of having this disadvantage the whole way through his underage playing days!

They really shouldn't have been beat by KK last year either though.

On another note Cody looking very gaunt in his interviews. He was never weighty but looks to have lost a load.
Well, he is over 70 now and he was never one to carry excess weight but, all the same, he has aged a lot lately.

He's 67 in a few weeks! Still, it's a young mans game. It takes loads of energy and mental resolve. It's also about the Management team you have around you.

I agree with thewobbler on this one. Natural athleticism and size are important, so too is the 'drive' to want to succeed. My cousin was born in December and managed to play hurling for Dublin due to all three of these - even though he wasn't the tallest either - he had that inner drive to succeed.

Anecdotal evidence I know, but that's what I tell those who have children who are born late in the year.
"It's not the size of the dog in a fight that counts. It's the size of the fight in the dog."

Ah yes, but some dogs have to fight harder than other dogs!

It's been statistically proven in soccer that being born in early months of the years gives a child a significant advantage. Appears to be stronger so gets more attention from coaches, easier to get on development squads etc. One of 1st things a coach should do is very aware of the dob of kids they train.

I always look at DOB of my players. It's essential to know.

Do many elected Sinn Fein and SDLP politicians attend local and international Rugby, Cricket and Hockey matches?

I admire Angelo for his ability to keep an argument going for about 50 pages or so.

I admire anyone who keeps up with Angelo's arguments!
