If O’Loughlin has a problem with Dublin funding why did take a job as gpo with a Dublin club. You could argue that he benefited from Dublin funding therefore Laois benefited.


#404

Thanks tayto, they are actually hits on the spacebar on my keyboard. will just hit return a couple of time in future.


#405

Trade in your 1982 PC for a new one lad.


#406

Has any comment been made on the ref going in to talk to Gavin after Con was flattened?


#407

He just bought it. #hipster


#408

that’s what i dont understand, keyboard is only a few months old and pc has just had a complete reinstall and upgrade.


#409

Yeah someone for Laois came on wearing 28 which is a number bigger then the 26 in the program so I didn’t know if Bunyan or Cluxton was wearing 1.


#410

It was changed because of blood - number 13 I think


#411

Thanks for the info but thats Mannion’s number.


#412

Mannion plays for Dublin. We are talking about Laois.


#413

Oh, that was Evan O’Carroll then.


#414

Don’t tell Alan O Connor about the clap for the Stardust victims. Himself and a few more don’t like symbolic acts like that at matches!


#415

What has the Stardust to do with politics? Or are you just shit stirring?

As it happens I suspect that while well intentioned, it will have exactly zero effect.


#416

He was tgged out but took very little part in warm up.


#417

Was Kevin McManamon togged out? Named on bench but didn’t see him on lap of honour?


#418

Astounding, but not unexpected hypocrisy from you. Read back over your replies when I said I agreed with the flying of Palestinian flags in Croke Park. Your were in such high dudgeon that there was a risk of vertigo if you looked down. The clap for Stardust families was also political- to force the government to act. You cannot have it both ways. Either neither are acceptable or both are.


#419

It’s not political. Absolute nonsense to suggest otherwise.

But let’s say I accept your assertion. Then no, I don’t believe any political act or protest has any place at a sports event.

No hypocrisy there at all.


#420

It’s not political? Ah here!


#421

Is it though? Are they not keeping a man back to cover for him? I don’t see any reason why a keeper can’t be more outfield, but I don’t think it creates an extra man. I think there is something in it, and fair play to him for trying it - but as a tactic I think it’s not there yet.


#422

When he comes out first he is extra - if he continues further out an overlap will have been created and a man can drop to cover. Happened a number of times yesterday.
