Grobler is a drug cheat and Best is a rape apologist.

That simple? Fúck's sake.


There was no mention of either issue specifically on Second captains by Thornely. McDevitt brought it up but he sidestepped it.

Thornley was fairly calm about it and didn't over egg the situation. He phrased it more along the lines of the IRFU viewing the media as competitors now and trying to keep things in house. I'm sure the the shit headlines of the past month won't have helped anything but it sounds like things have been a bit icy for sometime and this may have been the straw that broke the camels back.

Like a lot of big sport organisations the IRFU are trying to control the message through their website/youtube.

If you look at the state of Irish Rugby journalism, Murray Kinsella aside its not hard to see why the IRFU has no time for the print media.

FFS.
We ain't getting much in the way of luck these days.
Things must be somehow worse than they appear behind the scenes if we have plenty of dosh but unable to retain the likes of Gibbes.

The Best thing is going to run and run. Rugby is still pigeon-holed as a sport for elitist patriarchal men (as though that's a bad thing) and Best isn't even Irish, in the context of a lot of non-sports fans.

He's a very easy target and this'll run on for a while.

These millennial twitter losers that are so desperate to be a part of any kind of movement trying to hound Best out of the captaincy are scum.

Fella has given more to Ireland than any of those wasters.

You don't get it Stats. They're part of the Patriarchy and are rape apologists and no facts to the contrary will be considered. :roll:

If Gibbes wants to go coach the Aussies, I wouldn't try and keep him - better coaching a shit pack of forwards in the sun than Belfast.

Were we really that bad under "Doakball" :lol: :lol: :lol:

You'd worry about his mental health if he didn't take the Aussie job. Like he's only got another 18months if he's lucky in the Ulster gig.

The #notmycaptain thing is hilarious. Course he's not their captain, they'd never get their virtue signalling, tag loving spindle shoulders within an arse's roar of an Irish team, nor do they contribute to the game at a grass roots level. Not their captain indeed, they can fudge off.

Farrell will be coming up to have a look about and report back to Schmidt/Nucifora (more the latter) while at the same time helping Payne out with his first steps in coaching a defence. Whether or not Gibbes goes has little to do with it i suspect

There are a few people who when you search for details about the trial who tweet non stop about it. They thought these guys were guilty from Day 1. I would say they’re setting themselves up for a mental breakdown but they seem to be beyond that already.

According to Ruadhri O Connor from the Indo on OTB last night, it was Joe's call not the IRFU's to not speak to the journos.

Surprised at that given the press he's got over the years and continues to get.

The verdict of the trial by media was in the moment those texts were publicised.
Should the courts system not find them guilty, the verdict will be dismissed by eejits like above and be held up as an example of how the system is in still in the thrall of men etc etc.

Brian Murphy's death. The judge decided the Blackrock boys that kicked him to death had a bright future ahead of them and didn't want to destroy that potential. Why is everyone so surprised at Rory Best's behaviour? #notmycaptain

Joan Burton was given an awful time by those water protesting toe rags during their trial. The commentary on that online went way out of bounds to the point where legislation should be in acted to prosecute those knackers who prejudiced the trial. So it's not such a new thing in Ireland and shouldn't reach the depths the scummers did during that court case.

He doesn't seem to fancy the HC role for whatever reason. That's been his story for the last few years when the opportunity presented itself.
