    Why mention Tiger Wood and Floyd Mayweather? Two deserved legends of their sports with phenomenal records. Are you honestly trying to put McGregor in that class?

    I like McIlroy but some people think he is unlikable but how can anyone compare him to McGregor



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,245 ✭✭✭✭ Ush1


    But Mayweather actually came from a slum, with a nightmarish childhood. Same as Tyson.

    Someone mentioned Beckham being squeaky clean, didn't he have a number of affairs?



  • Registered Users Posts: 646 ✭✭✭ Saviola1978?


    Your hardly classing Beckham in the same class as McGregor 🤔



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,245 ✭✭✭✭ Ush1


    No not at all. Just pointing out he has had some indiscretions is all.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,775 ✭✭✭ Effects


    Yeah, but he generally kept them low key, didn't he?

    And he didn't party like a scum bag, and punch random people in the street, or bars.

    or shove enough coke up his nose to make pablo escobar do a double-take.

    He had an affair with a woman whose mainly remembered for [email protected] off a pig on some reality show.

    In fairness she was very sexy (Loos) back when Becks was slipping her a length. Looks like she wouldn't have been averse to bringing another bird along for some fun. Pretty dim move on the part of Posh to give the go-ahead to hire her as a nanny in fairness!

    Meanwhile this is the level of absolute crack-den scrag that McGregor was getting up on (yes that's him)

    The state of that yoke with McGregor.

    Never been a fan of McGregor but he was good for a time on the UFC but now with money and the constant bad behavior, it's all become WWE for him.

    He'll make a tonne more cash doing this in the US, but the reality with him is that he is a spent force and also now looking like a right plonker.

    You get the feeling that something karma-like is coming to him very soon unless he changes his ways.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,775 ✭✭✭ Effects


    To be fair, she only go the chance to **** off a pig on TV because she had an affair with Beckham, right?



  • Registered Users Posts: 94 ✭✭ someyoke


    Don't think so. Floyds father and uncle were professional fighters, he had a fairly privileged upbringing. So hardly rags to riches, he was always money Mayweather



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,015 ✭✭✭ Zak Flaps


    I meant in terms of ability. I'm not saying that he's in any way a good person.

    Mayweather was comfortably more talented and is a far bigger legend in world sport. (and I'm talking about sporting legacy here, not levels of fame)

    On a personal level, I would say McGregor is now also much worse than Mayweather ever was. As a black man in America, if Floyd had committed many of these assaults, there is no question he would have seen the inside of a jail cell.

    And I'm no fan of Mayweather's personal life btw.

    What message does it send out from our courts when McGregor can just pay off that old man in the pub and avoid and real world consequences from our justice system? Clearly it tells McGregor, that he can basically do whatever the feck he likes and he'll get away with it. Hopefully the Italian courts do what the Irish courts failed to do, and correctly punish what is now an out of control ego maniac hitting the self-destruct button right in front of our eyes!

    He didn't avoid any real world consequences from the courts by paying anyone off. He appeared in court, plead guilty and paid a fine.

    That's pretty typical outcome of a case like this in Ireland. I'm not saying it's ideal but it's nothing to do with brown envelopes or pay-offs.

    We all know there are much worse cases before our courts where people are walking away with fines. It's nothing to do with McGregor and everything to do with how our courts systems operate generally.

    The guy he punched would have been paid off to avoid further media coverage from a civil case after the criminal matter was dealt with. It had no affect on the actual matter before a judge as an assault offence.

    Is the DJ he punched pressing charges?

    You think everyone who manages to fight professionally is rich? In addition to boxing, his dad was a drug dealer who was shot while trying to use Floyd Jr as a human shield, and his mother was a crack addict. His and McGregor's upbringings are worlds apart.

    yes he said he is anyway, and rightly so but mcgregor will probably pay him off and it'll be some other easy target next week.

    Like Mcilroy he deffo has Napolean syndrome which is the root of the problem imo



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,396 ✭✭✭ EmmetSpiceland


    Pay off or have some goons intimidate the guy into taking the money and dropping the charges.

    McIlroy isn't that short, so why would he have Napoleon complex?

    i guess it depends on what height you are looking at him from, but to me 5 ft 8 or 9 is small for a man.
