Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

There were 388 deaths of healthy under 60s from covid. . That's a false interpretation of data being put out by the likes of Hartley-Brewer That number is derived by excluding anyone with any other condition... Irrespective of whether that condition had an impact on expected death. Therefore a 30 y...

Watchin Vids of MAGAs being arrested in Airports n'such is hilarious.
Particularly liked the one of the guy who discovered he is on the "no fly" list and goes off on one - "They are trying to ruin my life" he shouts with zero sense of irony

Re: Donald Trump - Have your say.

He is such a loser, wonder what damage he’ll do before Jan 21st Very little IMO. In a lot of cases the business of govt continues as it did even when Trump tweets. Not too long ago the DOJ had to argue in court that the President hadn't declassified anything and his tweets are meaningless. Pardons ...

Reports say BT have told senior staff, BOD etc, that their £40M/year offer to the Prem has been turned down and it's going elsewhere.
And then the Prem turned around and looks like they are taking a £110mm deal for three years. :roll:

Re: Friday's Rave

Neil Armstrong's motive for pulling rank were, however, well intentioned. Just before he stepped onto the moon he is reputed to have muttered under his breath "This one's for you Mr Gorky" Allegedly in 1938 when he was a kid in a small Midwest town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the back...

Lancaster is already an assistant coach, so he may see it as a step up?
Doubt it. Farrell used be assistant to Lancaster - and rumour had it wasn't completely harmonious

Perhaps Ireland could bring in Lancaster as a senior advisor or something similar?
I wonder what the reaction would be if it was suggested that Lancaster stepped in to assist Farrell - on both sides :D

If you're a fan in Wales, Scotland or Italy it's not much fun to watch your team getting killed each week particularly if you have the option of watching Celtic/Rangers or Swansea/Cardiff City as an alternative.
And how do you feel when the SA clubs arrive?

If you're a hillbilly in the Rockies do you want a hippie in California making the laws for you. The EC system tries to address that I think. It's the balance of House vs Senate that does this - the President doesn't make any laws. You're splitting hairs. No I'm not. I'd be splitting hairs if I poi...

Yeah contact tracing is and has been a shambles. I don't have a TV. How could there be evidence to support a 5km limit? It's a blunt rule to stop congregating and to slow the geographical spread.
