  • Were you able to look up 'dope' using the "search function"?

    'No Results'

    Plenty for 'PC prick's' though.




  • Looks like your buddy Ginger Bread can use the search function but can't do what he told me to do and do research prior to posting.

    Btw, my child was born here too 13 years ago and is not Irish.

    Define Irish then. Actually don’t. Tell me the rules for eligibility to play for Ireland. I’d say being born in Ireland is high up the list.

    OK, I'll play with you.................Must be tough to get any sort of state benefits like healthcare, social welfare, citizenship, proper schooling, jobs etc for them. Do they live in some limbo, like an airport terminal?

    What's a dope, though?

    That's the real question, here.




  • Each to their own OP.

    GAA is my passion but I’ve supported an English football team since the 80’s and have often travelled over for matches.

    However you can’t beat the feeling of your own ‘home’ team winning, I don’t care what anyone says there’s no comparison.

    I also detest the republican type Celtic supports whom often refer to the GAA as bog ball. Can’t get my head around that attitude albeit from a small enough minority.

    The rules say if you're born in Ireland, you're Irish alright. However I believe that a child born of two African parents regardless of where they were born is African. note I'm only using African parents as an example.

    Rules or no rules I'm entitled to believe that and that belief does not make me a racist or a dope.




  • "I am only using African"

    What does that bloody mean............... Where are you from yourself that you don't consider your child Irish born child Irish.




  • Actually, I am not playing anymore. I am sure someone will spend longer feeding on your bait

    I didn’t call you either of those things but what you believe to be Irish has no impact on citizenship or eligibility to play for the Irish team thankfully.




  • Saying someone who identifies as Irish, grew up in Ireland, has a strong Irish accent, Irish education and even represents an Irish international team and is perfectly and legally entitled to same self national identification isn't Irish based on their skin colour, is, if you state it is your opinion, a racist opinion, no matter how you dress it up.

    A feature of a dope is ignorance and if you are ignorant to all those facts, namely that your opinion is racist, then yeah, the name befits.

    I think your comments are far stronger and, indeed, dangerous in society than me calling you ignorant.

    So, yeah, you are very much entitled to your opinion but like it or not people are entitled and right to call your opinion racist and ignorant.

    Now I know you are seeking reaction, but I just want to clarify what my comments mean, for fear you are playing the victim of unjustifiable name calling.

  • What about the real weirdos who support actual "foreign" clubs.

    I did not say it was based on their skin colour. You are deliberately trying to do what you are accusing me of trying to do and that's look for a reaction.

    Please take your own advice now and don't reply to me again.




  • "Yous did well the weekend. Who do yous have next?"

    Or..

    "He's done well for us all season."

    This is the kind of sh1te I can't help overhearing every fuking Monday.




  • But it is their skin colour, stop playing coy............. a circumstance of their parents skin colour. Because why else aren't they Irish which you claimed they weren't?

    Worm away from your comments when someone calls you out! Embarrassing stuff!

  • Roddy Doyle writes an excellent piece on his first match back in Dalymount after decades away.

    The place was heaving

    I just don't get it. Why are Irish people so fanatical about English football teams. I particularly laugh at the way they talk about individual players being loyal to particular teams. Do they really care about the fans or the 100k they are getting a week. ��

    nonsense post there are several irish players in the EPL loads just outside it the championship , they have such a value to the irish national team i take it we should just ignore the whole lot of them ......or just use it our advantage which we are trying without being stupidly interrupted by stupid posts and threads like this :rolleyes:
