Mods, can we put some more social distancing between us Dubs and Kingdomboy? Give him his own thread or something and he might self isolate there. :). No offence pal.

Replying To KillingFields:  "Yeah what a childish response. It's one of the only forums I know of that pre moderates posts to this extent as well as used to have an actual closing time every day. You can moderate using far better methods than here while also using better software to host the web forum."
I'm not taking the p**s when I ask Wo uld you not get yourself a good book or maybe two or three good books ? Hilary Mantel's latest book The Mirror and The Light has just been published . It's the concluding book in a trilogy that started with Wolf Hall and continued with Bring up The Bodies . I'd recommend them highly . Books can take you away to other places and distance you for a while from reality . They're a far better distraction than Internet forums .

In not trying to be rude but get over yourself greengrass
I dont see what's wrong with asking for the forum being far better than it Is right now. As right now its extremely limited and outdated. The interface is poor. It's so slow and doesnt encourage decent debate which is the point of rule discussion forum
I've read bring up the bodies already. It was alright but wouldnt read others. Didnt think that much of it tbh.

Maybe you should have tried to read the first book Wolf Hall before you read the second one . In the general scheme of things Internet forums should come way down people's lists of priorities .

Sorry had read the first as well now I actually think about it. Got them through artist friends of mine but still not best of books IMO

Think any forum of any kind in this time with the issues can be a release from the pressures and shouldnt be discouraged

Funny. I think I have a solution. If there is no All-Ireland this year may be Kerry could be awarded an honorary one. I'm worried of a melt down if they don't get one soon.
Just poking you Kerry lads.

Not entirely sure what they thought closing the forum would achieve but I'm glad it's reopened.

"Forum reopened due to demand" and then this becomes the most commented on thread with no new threads at all and hardly any comments on other threads. It would make you wonder where the demand was after all!

I will put a new one. Not totally new because it has had different variations.

Can't believe they shut down the GAA the year that Joycey was going to bring Sam home. Dublin conspiracy obviously.

Probably read it and emailed the author with his criticism and suggested possible improvements

I'm smiling at your post Breffni. He had to think again before he remembered that he had read the first book in the trilogy after telling me had read the second one .

As I said to Trump 'twas a double conspiracy against Western teams, who win a fair amount but are not ''big ones'- ourselves in hurling and ye Tribesmen in football..

Hopefully we'll all come out the other side of this one bud and then the gloves will really be off as the Jacks dive into the mix for six.

In fairness it would be worth more than some of the Sams they won in the past. :-)

I'm already planning my next attack dude :-)

I just read Sean Kelly's article where he reckons 32 counties all in and an open draw first team drawn out gets home advantage with the first 16 defeated teams into the new tier 2 competition could you imagine Kerry v dublin in the first round in killarney, now that would be something to look forward to, dublin in tier 2 that is :-0
