Rory McIlroy olympics u-turn

Quote:
I'm excited to play for Ireland
So, do we welcome him with open arms or tell him to go and jump?

Only one thing worse than a Tan, a turncoat.

By the sounds of it, he had little say in the decision and was given his orders by Nike.

Much easier to sell a 'proud Irishman' representing his country at the Olympics to the Yanks.

To comment on this aspect specifically, he didnt play for someone else in the last Olympics, he just didnt play at all.

And that tells you I know zip about golf or who anyone plays for. IMO one should follow the money in these things. Pay me enough and I'd wear the butchers apron. I was trying to be a wee bit funneh there.

Logical decision to opt for Ireland given the level of nonsense he was subject to last time round. His heart is in the UK, we all know that. His Irishness will be worth a few quid when it comes to endorsements in the US. Good luck to him.

Should be told to go sling his hook.
Taking a spot from the likes of Seamus Power or Paul Dunne.

Who are not going to win a medal. Rory has a far better chance of winning one for you.

If we made Outrage About National Affiliations a sport, we'd be a dead cert for a gold medal.

Will he be the first Irish Olympian who is an MBE?

100% he should be told to f**k off, the runt changes his mind as often as the wind changes direction.
A very, very unlikeable person who shouldn't take the place of one of our committed players.
