Might be lucky to hold on at this rate.
Yep. Could rue some of those first half misses.

For those who are Covid Vaccine hesitant would Ivermectin not be a good alternative if authorised here?. It says in this article that it's been around since 1981 and reduces the risk of transmission by 88 per cent.

In this video it is claimed that if Ivermectin was used throughout the world then Covid would be gone within a month.

Yes, but why have a cure, when they can keep it all going with annual vaccines, cripple the economy, destroy livelihoods  and control the population?

I said it months ago - this isn’t about a virus.

FFS have a read online about Ivermectin. It’s really that easy to get the full picture.

Used to dose the cattle with Ivermectin. Great stuff. Must inject a few cc's into the kids tonight.
Looking forward to the new Joe Cooney ads.

FINALLY you are taking the advice of experts and not Big Sharon on Facebook (loves her children Kash, Kateee, Kaxon and Karliiii).

Aye they are falling over themselves to shoe-horn a woman pundit but many of them just aren't very good.

As a nation, no matter what sport, the Scots have cornered the market in playing well and losing. They have dominated this game.
Punished for mistakes. Plucky losers.

Kyle Walker looks like he'd be doing well to get a game at Mallusk.

Defibrillators are gold dust

If anything good comes out of today's sickening incident it will hopefully be that message

Everywhere sport is played needs to have them on site

+1 on all that. I’d nearly go as far to say that anyone in charge of a team at any level should have correct training on how to use them. Its all well and good in a packed stadium with medical personnel on hand but if that were to happen at a saturday morning league game at the local leisure centre or a challenge game at the GAA club the chances of having someone around to operate the thing wouldn’t be so high.

Maybe this training is already mandatory.
I'm sure there is training on how to use a defib but the whole point of them is that anyone should be able to pick it up and use it. The defib audibly guides you through instructions on how to use it afaik. It also won't shock the person if it can detect a heart beat as some people may have misjudged a weak pulse for no pulse. Very clever machine
Exactly - the repeated posts on Twitter etc. about training in use of a defib could put people off using it for fear of lack of training. They are practically idiot proof.

Both them points are fair enough then. I’d never have known that they were as easy to use as you say and probably wouldn’t dream of touching one in fear of rendering it useless for when someone who was trained finally arrived. Not sure there ease of use is all that common knowledge?
I'd agree with your point in that awareness is required rather than formal training. We have had the ones in work demoed to us as part of first aid training and they are well designed with a combination of visual and audible cues. There is little more complex than getting the 2 pads in the correct location (there is a diagram), then the device will talk to the operator and tell them when to stand clear, when to press the button to shock and when it is safe to recommence CPR. They are essential kit - our first aid trainer said (from recollection) you only have an 8% chance of survival without one which goes up to approx 75% with one.

I watched the start of the match and went out to the garden and when I came back there was a gardening programme on. It was only when I went on Twitter I saw what happened. Glad I missed it to be honest. There was a photo on Twitter where he was being stretchered off and he was conscious. We have seen in the past if you are to take some sort of turn, outside of hospital, a sports ground is the place to be.

The BBC and other stations getting destroyed online due to dwelling on the scenes instead of cutting away. They even zoomed in at one stage yet the cnuts won't give you a decent look at a streaker!

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!)?

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.
Same here. I like the analysis but the young buck has zero interest on tv analysis but will happily watch some tubes on YouTube talk shite about it.
