I wonder why?

I think you asked what was great about the wars when I referenced the "Great Wars", wasn't that it ?

Replying To Johnnyprophet:  "Will Dublin get a bigger punishment than Down or Cork due to the fact that they knew what had happened to those two teams in December or January and decided to go ahead and break the rules anyway."
No of course not, why would the GAA do that? You can change punishments and state clearly this is what happens if you do from this date on, but you cannot retrospectively apply them or you will find yourself infront of the DRA. GAA to my knowledge hasn't published anything on what punishment is to be dished out, in fact no one knows what the punishment for this actually is. If they did then maybe people wouldn't do it.

Nah. I think we disagreed about WW1 being a Great War.

Replying To Tirchonaill1:  "Just listening to the news on the radio, there is no need for this constant barrage of figures on hospital stats which are a fraction of what they were 3 months ago. Seems like fear mongering.
The big scare now is these new variants which are so much worse than the first edition of covid-19 and are so much easier to transmit, Last Summer when the figures were tiny we still had these dramatic daily briefings with the team of X men walking out for their wee news conference every evening,
this time last year there was nothing worse than this covid-19, yet they couldn't decide if wearing a mask to protect against an airborne virus was a good idea or not?
The figures on deaths relating to covid are inflated, why do you think that is? For some reason a lot of it looks like a load of BS to me anyway.
I'm not a conspiracy theorist and I have followed all the rules, just a lot of this just doesn't make sense."
"The figures on deaths relating to covid are inflated"

Oh yeah? Do you have a credible source for that statement?

And by credible, I mean something other than a Trumpian echo chamber or some shrieking low rent viewspaper, please.

In fact, globally, according to Dr Michael Ryan, the figures may have been undererestimated:

But sure, what would he know lol

Correct, you said "There was nothing great about WW1". I referred to the "Great Wars", but they, and particularly WW1 were called "Great" because of their size and not because of their "quality", but you wrongly assumed the latter.

Look I don't know what the GAA will do concerning Dublin's punishment but this is a serious breach of the rules (and this twelve hours after head quarters reiterated again that nobody was to go back training early) and cheating needs to be discouraged by what ever means possible weather that means Dublin get a greater punishment than Down or Cork I think they should, a message needs to be sent out that this is not acceptable weather your a team as low as Down or Cork or a team as high as Dublin. I'd love if Galway could get a head start in both the football and the hurling but we can't because we actually obey the rules.

These players made a poor decision but once they did it was seized on and used as diversion from the facts that in spite of all the regulations the virus spreads. People trying to join the dots that some players kicking a ball around separated out in a field are spreading covid. Then Kenny okay with a good old political party of 80 as history but wants the book thrown at Dublin for this.
Then there are the ones if the cat had kittens it is is Dublin's fault and an opportunity to make them villains that you should dislike. Funny Kilkenny were the same playing on the edge. Never understood that they were either playing with in the rules or if not suggesting that officials had made a decision to let them not. Look out Limerick if your success continues. (actually false rumours already spread)
The vaccines will help people from getting extremely sick thankfully but the virus will continue to spread. One retirement home that my daughter takes patients to had all got their second vaccine but 6 new cases of covid now recorded. However their systems are not near as serious. I was 100% in favour of all the regulation but that bird has flown and not going to swallow the b.s. we are been fed anymore. I now believe that if there was 110% compliance it would no difference and the truth will eventually come out as to how it spreads.

You said, "you wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the people who fought and died in the great wars." I took issue with the phrase "great wars." Great wars implies WW1 was a war of liberation when it was anything but. Anyway thanks for the clarification AfricanGael. Hopefully we'll be posting about matches all over the country in the not too distant future.

Ah no, the meaning of "Great" in that sense is the scale of the war, a word often used to describe size like in Great Lakes, Great Barrier Reef, Great White etc etc. Yes indeed.

Have some people on here gone off topic ?
We are supposed to be discussing which was the best war of all time.
Yet some here are talking about the Dublin team training
last week.
Stay on topic please.

This topic has really gone down the drain..what a pity it couldn't have been discussed properly or else people now realize that what the dubs did just is no longer the bloody end of the world..I've an idea that maybe all those giving out want the dubs to be thrown out to make it a slightly more even championship..

Well don't you think the dubs already have enough advantages without having to resort to cheating to gain yet another ? It's just another line on the lengthy rap sheet. You have dubs talking about never buying the Indo just because they were caught cheating, like the poor man's self pity city.

Haha you don't say, the Kerry lads had a spring in their step when this story broke.

Breaking news seems footage of Monaghan players training at the end of March might take some of the heat of Dublin. Wonder how many other counties are breaking the rules?
