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

Least experimental in what context?

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!

I see the throwing of mud from the media has started. Looks like Holgate is now the one being chased!

https://www.balls.ie/football/evertons-mason-holgate-faces-ban-homophobic-tweets-380985

Last week's derby FA Cup tie had lots of talking points. From Virgil Van Dijk's debut winner, the contentious Lallana penalty, the callback from the league game with a contentious penalty going in the opposite direction, Mason Holgate shoving Roberto Firmino over the advertising hoarding into the crowd going completely unpunished by referee Bobby Madley leading of course to the darker element that's hung over the fixture: Holgate accusing Firmino of using racist language against him.

There is still no decision made on that situation but Holgate's complaints seem to have opened up an unsavoury elements of his own past. A history of using homophobic language during Twitter exchanges.

The Everton defender has since deleted the Tweets but, as the general rule goes, once something appears on the internet it can never really be deleted. The Tweets were sent from his account back in 2012 and 2013 but they could see the 21 year old face a lengthy ban. He is now under investigation from the FA after the incident was highlighted following the Firmino bust up.

It was first believed that Holgate had deleted his Twitter following the Firmino clash and abuse he was receiving from Liverpool fans. The offensive tweets sent by the player contained the words "f**got", "fag" and "batty".

There is precedent in this kind of a case, for example Watford's Andre Gray. In 2016 Grey was suspended from playing for four matches whilst playing for Burley when he was found guilty of six aggravated breaches of FA rules for homophobic comments made on social media.

The FA continue to investigate the situation from last Friday night's game at Anfield, with no decision made yet on Firmino's alleged racist language.

FFS will you stop ruining another thread.
Builder charges GAA €1m plus €135k VAT.
GAA gives builder €1,135,000.00.
Builder eventually pay the €135k to Revenue.

Indeed and when you stay in a hotel for a night going to Croke park you pay VAT on the room. If you buy a sandwich in Croke park you pay VAT on that and so on. If the old stadium took 60k and the new one 80k, that 20k more people buying and paying VAT. That is how the investment is justified.

What a load of horse sh1te! Investment or not from the government. Croke Park would have been finished. It might have taken 10 years longer. But it would have got there. Most frequent visitors that I know, know better than to spend money on food in Croke Park. They may do it once. But when they see the rip-off, they are a lot shyer reaching into their pockets on return visits. As for the 20k extra people that fit into the stadium. Their has not been much need for this capacity the last couple of year.
