General discussion / Re: Clerical abuse!

Bullshit.Like all other organisations they have statutory child protection procedures.I agree that they are over scrutinised,by themselves,leaving many priests feeling abandoned by the Church when an as yet unfounded allegation is made against them.

Incidentally the above article is about totally unproven allegations against a Bishop about complicity.Whatever mistakes Church authorities made in the past in their handling of Child Abuse allegations,they were certainly not complicit.

Ah, it does not matter now whether he is innocent, he will always be guilty in the Public eyes (sadly)! The trust is lost! The bad smell from previous bad judgments and the above the law feel that the clergy had in the past has left a sour taste in the public's mouth. It will take a generation for this to pass over. By then it's hard to know at what level the Catholic Church will be operating.

It could be a good thing! If it Keeps decently talented lads playing in Ireland It'd be great. Also may attract decent players to our League. The problem is you don't want/need a Celtic type dominance like there is in Scotland (at the moment)! But if one Club pushes on with the help of financial clout, it may spur a few more to get out of their comfort zone. Doing well in Europe is worth a lot of money in the present climate.

Learned what, exactly? That it needs to cover up better?

They have learned that they can be caught now.

They have learned that now they have gone from a position of being one of the most trusted figures in Society to one that is over scrutinised!

Thems the breaks!

I feel sorry for the decent few Priests that are left with this mess.

Sam is a decent short term solution. Everton were in trouble and he steadied the ship. But long term Everton fans would be hoping for some one to push the club on. Some one new and fresh! Along with Sam there are a heap of worn out Managers - Hodgeson, Hughes, Pardew, and Moyles. They seem to be just hopping from one club to another. Another version of a Journey man player!

Actors and singers have a higher likelihood of being noticed when they die compared to the general population.

Least experimental in what context?

I presume in the context of the FBD. Our other two games involved very few Championship starters or squad players.

Jez, that was the most painful couple of minutes of my life. Two Lads chatting about an article and no research done! Car crash online TV!

So after Dublin you rate the Provinces in the following order?

Munster
Connacht
Leinster
Ulster

Can we assume firstly that if the game goes pro then the county format is gone?

I don’t think anyone arguing for professionalism is saying there will be 32 pro teams. They are saying there will be about 10.

I wrote about one possible format and argued for professional here if anyone wants to read https://wp.me/p3MsvZ-14

lol, you actually wasted time writing that? Ridiculous ideas.

Well it’s already happened to a large extent with rugby in this country in the 90s  but suit yourself

Rugby is a minority sport in Ireland and had to create the Province/Club system.

Rugby historically had/has a natural allegiance to the Provinces.

Rugby has a international element, which its 4 clubs Piggyback on!

Galway Bay's Ollie and Barry getting really excited by the result! :)     ;)

Have you ever heard a GBFM match commentary before? It's that way all the time regardless of what's happening on the pitch, they don't get called Galway Biased FM for nothing.

Ah we have our own biased crew on Midwest Radio. It was Comedy gold listening to the commentary. Lines like ''there is an eerie silence among the Mayo fans leaving'' and ''This sets up the League game in Salthill'' were looking through my hands moments!  ;D
Local radio at its best 😂
Martin Carney on Mid West last summer anyone? 😀

Martin was not crying in 2012 for Mayo! Made no secret of his delight at Donegal winning. Shure what more would you expect from him for his native county?

Does money really matter to O'Neill and Keane given the millions they have already.

It's all relative! Everybody has a standard!
