In response to the previous pages if Hurling or Football were the worldwide sport instead of soccer you'd see far bigger interest in the national team. When a county match like Tipp and Galway or Limerick and Cork can bring 60-70k to croker for a semi final or 40k to Thurles for a Munster round Robin match you know which sport is bigger in terms of importance to the general public. Soccer has a big place in Ireland but sadly most of the love goes to the Premier league. The bandwagon we string together for major tournaments is admirable though.

If I popped over to post on the rugby version of ybig (not sure if one even exists or not) and carried on as you have here spamming threads with the same agenda regardless if it’s connected or not and I also stated that I didn’t care for the Irish rugby team much and much preferred harlequins and 3 Rock Rovers in the hockey, I would expect to be ran off the site for being a WUM.  You have sucked all of the humour out of whatever sections threads (something I am guilty of here but then again there was not humour on this thread to begin with) 

The mods can do their thing but I am just flagging it, as the mods have correctly stated they cannot do their job unless people flag it.  
Your whole point over the last page or so is to set yourself up as the thought police

You literally can't even comprehend that anybody who doesn't have the exact same opinions as you isn't wumming

You're even calling for me to be banned just because you don't like my opinions LOL

Read back over your posts here, embarrassing stuff

As I said, there's only one person gaslighting and wumming here and that's yerself - and even at that it's piss poor gaslighting and wumming, it's actually pompous arseholery

"Agree with my opinions or you should be banned"



To be fair you have done a good enough job on getting yourself banned previously when you lost control.  
Look who's gaslighting again

Look who's still seething because my brother said something mean to him

Get over yerself ye pompous big girl's blouse

Is this the same brother who got himself banned for personal abuse to other posters and not me? Maybe he picked it up the anger issues from you or vice versa.  
You'll forgive me if I have anger issues offline, my father who I was a full time carer for died from hospital acquired Covid 14 days ago

But sure now you're telling me how to live my life, I'm "bored" or something, perhaps I need to "get a life", and all because I made some perfectly legitimate posts which you got offended by

What's your excuse for your anger issues, gaslighting issues and propensity for fake offence issues?

Boredom is the least of them I'd say

@Sid

I'll leave the multi-posting out of it. Yah we have a disagreement on achievements. It think we should leave it at that.

Let's try and get the thread back on track - who are Ireland's best investigative reporters? 
It would damage this forums' reputation

That Declan Lynch lad always seems to bring everything back to being an alcoholic.LOL

I dont read his articles regularly or anything but have read a couple over the years.

I have seen him in clips for the Channel 4 Roy Keane documentary and Finding Jack Charlton.

Both times he mentions being tormentedLOL

In Finding Jack he says ''If Ireland was a person it would be a deeply tormented dysfunctional person'' FFSLOL

Declan what's your favourite sporting moment?

DL:  I'd have to say Alex Higgins being drunk as he was knocked out of the World Snooker Championships and he sat there in disarray, totally tortured, depressed.

That reminds me.  I have to get petrol ont he way home.  My car is a deeply dysfunctional individual always looking for a drink.  He can't stop one or two litres.  He drinks a minimum of 20 litres in one go.  I brought him to AA meetings with Conor Faughnan who told me there he couldn't help as he works for the Automobile Association.  My car is fighting demons on a daily basis.  He cant pass a garage without wanting a drink.


Eh ok thanks Declan.
So you've decided to read this eh?

might be down to the fact he struggled with the drink himself and gave it up many years ago.

No he has written extensively about the terrible impact of gambling and the power and lack of responsibility the gambling companies take.  Also a great book Tony 10 which I believe is going to be a film soon.
