GHA. Not worth responding to him unless he has the bank balance of Steve Lansdowne or Tony Rowe. Sounds so much like our normal troll PLZD!

Why can no one actually reply on this and have a debate?

Do you really think that our owner, the board , the coaches and the players don't want to improve? If your answer is no then you have obviously never been involved in the sport other than whingeing.

It took Bristol years to get back into the Prem and Exeter have taken ten years to get to where they are. Nothing is overnight, nor is anything forever. Can you imagine what it must be like to be a Leicester fan? Ascendancy in the Prem has never been assured and even survival as a club is never guaranteed. Money is no guarantee of success, ask Bath. Cheating worked wonders at Saracens, but look where it's got them. I want success for Irish as much as anyone, but I'm a realist. We have no divine right to succeed, nor does any other team and there are 11 others all with fans expecting/hoping for a playoff spot at least. We've always been strapped for cash, until the CVC windfall, but hopefully, once we get crowds at Brentford, that might change. I'm not completely convinced how wisely the windfall has been spent, but I have to assume the powers that be have some nous and I'm sure they have a better idea of how to run a club than I do. As I have said in previous posts, I am worried about our sometimes toothless attack, but I am prepared, given the unprecedented season, to hold off in judgement for a while.
In the meantime, I am looking forward to the new season and at some stage being able to sit in my seat at Brentford.
Apathetic I am certainly not. (Sm63)

You are correct Francis, we never had big money until the CVC cash came along, but it can’t last forever and no idea when it runs out. Hopefully Brentford brings in new revenue, but it would have to be better than the dross that I have watched on TV post lockdown. With no crowds for the foreseeable future, it will be very tough on the powers that blew.

ExilePaul is entitled to his own opinion like everyone Else

We definitely need an attack coach for the new season - Quins have just announced that Sean Long is leaving, he has been their specialist attack coach, might be a worthwhile addition to our coaching team?

The thought of 60 year old Declan Kidney who's as dull as dish water working alongside a loud northern guy with a tattoo of an owl on his throat is absolutely hilarious

Ha ha ha!

That's a funny comment Mr ExilePaul. How do you know he has an 'owl tattoo'? You're a real funny guy. Do you ever watch rugby?

Well done sonny, you've got some of them here wound up !

Deoraiocht - I think you may find that you owe Exilepaul an apology:

From the pic, it looks like an owl tattoo on his throat to me!

Also - not sure mocking someone by reference to his mental health is the most pleasant or most constructive way of ‘debating’ on an open rugby message board.

Do you think Paul is here for debate, Alex?

Bubo Bengalensis I would say. The Bengalese Eagle Owl that is. Or some sort of horned owl.
Definitely an owl though Paul. Not a fan of tattoos myself, I think they are a bit sad and most look awful. Each to their own though. At least the owl is a bit less run of the mill than usual. I bet that one hurt.(Sm63)

@AlecW
No one is mocked. It was a polite suggestion.

As you seem to be the final arbiter of morality, maybe you could do some of the moderating here ?

No apology needed.

We've got a weird fanbase we accept poor performances and results but when someone mentions it they get hammered

Shows you’ve obviously never met Declan then. Dull as dish water is far removed from his persona.
TBH you never have anything positive to say on this site so you should really move on somewhere else and troll another team.

Nope I'll stay thanks and if you dont like what I say or cant handle the truth maybe you should move on or dont read my comments

Truth? Hilarious!

Now then - how to unpack this one?

Deoraiocht: not ‘the final arbiter’ (that’s Griff, btw) - simply as entitled to an opinion on here as you are (or as Exilepaul is). I notice that you edited out your comment about Exilepaul’s mental health at 1136 and THEN posted your ‘innocent’ response to me, so perhaps in the end you agreed with me that it was a bit out of order, but thought you’d covered your tracks? It wasn’t polite, it was unpleasant and derogatory, but of course you have now edited your post ... how very convenient. What remains of your comment is (IMNVHO - natch) neither very polite nor a suggestion, either ... sonny!

GHA - no, I’m not entirely sure he is either, but let’s be optimistic - Gawd knows anybody with any interest in LI needs all the optimism available at the moment?!

Exilepaul - it looks as if you read my post 20 or so minutes after Deoraiocht (very misleadingly) edited out his comment. No wonder you wondered what I was on about...!

For anyone who is curious as to why I wanted to call Deoraiocht out, may I recommend Joe Marler’s book ‘Loose Head’, which is both hilarious and painful (...ly honest, in both cases) about the horrible mental health issues from which he (and as a result his family) has suffered. Another is Brian Moore’s ‘Beware of the Dog’, which discusses the emotional / mental trauma and fallout from his sexual abuse by one of his schoolteachers.

As a result of reading them, I am coming to the (entirely personal) view that mental (ill-)health is not really something to joke about.

Are the terms idiot / stupid / thick / moronic allowed, Alex?

One person's opinion that another should see a psychiatrist (for example) is just an opinion, remember

deoraíocht 10 October, 2020 12:52
@AlecW

You know what Alec, you've a strong opinion on who and what can be posted here.

Remind me again.... whose posts on Paddy Jackson had to be removed because they were
"unpleasant and derogatory".? And possibly had other ramifications.

Ah yes, it was you.

To mix metaphors : people in glass houses shouldn't get on their high horse.

Actually, IIRC (it was April 2019) my comments were statements of fact, taken from the court records as quoted in the newspapers. It was the fact that I posted them on here (and on reflection the rather inappropriate content) that people took exception to. Griff PM-ed me about it and invited me to edit my comment. So I thought about it and then I did. I think I was honest enough at the time to say that I had edited the comment after further thought, but the thread seems to have disappeared. Probably just as well. It was entitled “Jackson & Olding”.

Are you honest enough to say that you edited out the inappropriate part of YOUR comment (posted after midnight on a Friday night - I admit that I like many others am not at my best at that time!) after further reflection...?

Enough (for me at least) - off to watch the Prem semis in the village pub.

I find offensive. it's false and is defamatory. I think you owe me an apology.
