Re: MLB Thread

Oh I agree, it's a silly article. However, that number of people coming through the gates allows us to pay $240m for Robinson Cano i.e. that's still a lot of people coming through the gates in one year (even if it's the same 10k people going to 82 matches) and that makes a serious amount of money fo...

Re: MLB Thread

I'm surprised the Mariners didn't pick him up, his profile sounds quite familiar. We've signed a bunch of veteran starters on minor league contracts with spring training invitations, all of whom are coming back from Tommy John surgery after missing 2013, hoping that one or two of them make it. Why n...

Re: MLB Thread

Here in the US they are saying that his upside is only that of a number 2 pitcher. I'm in Seattle and the Mariners were linked with him. However, our 1-2 combo at the top of the rotation is actually one of the best around, we didn't want to pay stupid money for a 3 pitcher, and the Yankees were dete...

You guys only watch the Majors? Masahiro Tanaka, 24, is a starting pitcher for the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in the NPB. He has applied for international free agency and will most likely sign for NYY when the Japanese play-offs are done. He won again last night (2-0) over Chibu Lotte in the NPB ...

So one bloke should be in prison, one bloke is displaying moral cowardice, they retaliate too much after getting smacked in the face and one has a silly name - does anybody have anything good to say about any of the Scarlets?

how long can we listen to Mark Robson.seriously I could listen to him all day long. I'm emigrating in a couple of weeks and he is one of the main things I am going to miss! That's sad. Unless it's by choice rather than need. Are you going too far away to make it back for the odd game? Thanks mate. ...

Re: Bull sh!t bingo thread

Does any other company use learnings instead of lessons or just mine?

As in, "what learnings can we take from that total c0ck-up we just did?"

I want to slap people in the face when they say it but it has become so insideous my hand would soon get red.

How deos Campese not get a spot on the wing for every word he's uttered since he's retired? Ali Williams for every haka that he's ever done deserves a spot in the pack and Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu deserves a place as media officer if he doesn't get a place in the centres.

Re: O'Connell not cited

Not sure if you're aware or if you're just being selective, but Shane Jennings escaped a ban for a very serious punching incident against Connacht a few years ago, which enabled him to play in the Heineken. He escaped on a technicality, the use of a fax rather than an letter. I'm very aware of that...

Re: Pro12: Munster v Leinster, Shelbyville, Sat 13th

If I've listened to the media correctly over the years, Munster are the greatest team ever since a docker and a doctor invented rugby in Limerick in 2002. Yet we went down there in the lashing rain and slugged out a win against them in a pretty intense derby. I'll take the four points happily, and l...

To Tories,right wingers and Harry Enfield Loadsamoney types she was a hero.

To myself(and millions of others), I wholly despised the rancid aul bitch. I took great pleasure in her demise and truly hope she suffered in her final days.

Good riddance to a stain on humanity.

Re: Munster Thread 2012-2013

Frankie is just embarrassing himself now. The scrum going backwards but because Botha was only going back slowly that's parity and therefore it should be a reset? The camera clearly shows Botha standing up after Marler got the shove on but Frankie reckons it's actually the other way?

Frankie Sheehan :lol: :lol: :lol: This could be a landmark day in broadcasting history if he carries on in this vein! In fairness Dave, the sign of a good scrum is obviously when it's going backwards at a rate of knots. To think Munster have given Botha a new deal too! Murray has started well. Kilc...
