The "overrated" thread

He is doing great since he got his iPad.


#323

No doubt Dublin paid for that…


#324

Paid iPad?


#325

The iPad story was good. 2 dubs sitting in Ennis watching cork and Clare ( I think) with iPads and there was poor old Kerry with a pen and paper. Sweet jaysus I laughed at that one.

Ever hear of the The Kerry Association in London .No ? Neither had i , but in 2015 they handed over a cheque for €335 K to help build the center of excellence. The cheek of Fitzmaurice to go the poor mouth route when they are siphoning huge amounts of money out of GB & the states through “fundraising” . But you don’t hear about that much .
The great thing about fundraising is you can never point a finger at it as its not coming directly from HQ , but they are hoovering up huge amounts . I wonder is it taxed too :thinking:. The amount of dodgy under the table stuff in that regards is rampant I’d say . But again , ya never hear it been publicised much because its “above board”.

Aslan. Especially Dignam. Yuck.


#328

Oh yeah, and that Kerry full forward line!


#329

It’s been said before but I’m nominating “alluded to”

It’s become one of those annoying GAA-isms and it’s always used wrong. There was a stinker yesterday when Joanne Cantrell said something like “x is a great player” and in a rambling reply the guest said how she alluded to him being a great player. Just bugs the shite out of me.

Alluded to = to hint.

Saying things as they are is not a fucking allusion.

(Speaking of GAA-isms we had another referee bio in yesterday’s programme about matches coming under his jurisdiction. Why do GAA programmes get littered with language from 1884?)


#330

Alluded means referred - not hinted, actually referred.


#331

Inferred? Not sure referred conveys the meaning fully?

“Lauded” being used to mean slagged off. It actually means praised to the high heavens.

Oh, and that Kerry full forward line. :laughing:


#332

Inferred means that something is hinted.


#333

Yer woman on the Trivago adverts.


#334

Get out of my head ! :clap: :clap: :clap:


#335

John Travolta.
Nicholas Cage (Lord of War aside).


#336

Not a fan of Face-Off then…@beeko


#337

Ridiculous film, in my opinion.


#338

Are they not goggles you wear at night to see in the dark?:eyes:


#339

Saw Christy a few minutes ago funnily enough.


#340

I’m not a fan of Aslan but I don’t think anyone overrates them.
Christy Dignam seems like a grand fellow, he made a bad move and paid for it.
I’d prefer to listen to him anytime rather than Bono…


#341

Would rather listen Jim McGuinness gushing about himself than listen to Bono.
