Standup for the basketcases

Post by davejohnston » Fri Apr 27, 2018 10:51 pm

Following in from Conney last week it’s nice to see Stockdale not afraid to defend his own. BoD and Darcy are asses, but collectively they have helped galvanise players and supporters.
So I think the comments are pretty unfair - in terms of within the club and in terms of the players there is absolutely no split.

"To be honest, everything that has gone on outside of Ulster Rugby and the stuff that you can't control has almost galvanised us.

"We have pulled out performance on top of performance and we have started actually playing some really good rugby."
Course the reality is we are in a bit of a mess, but like your own family it’s ok for you to complain about your relatives, but no one else should! Interesting to see another article in the BBC where Logan gets called out
He said the barring of news journalists from the press conferences was "a truly bizarre approach".
And he pointed to "another unusual feature" around the "lack of visibility" from senior figures to answer "clearly legitimate questions" around the culture of the club.
The PR consultants also believe banning news journalists from press conferences was a mistake, not helped by the low profile of Ulster Rugby chief executive Shane Logan, dubbed "the invisible man" by supporters.

Think the band could learn how to play Basket Case by Green Day before the playoff v Ospreys?

Some interesting material on the Twitter feeds of Eamon Mallie and Ian Parsley, among others. There is growing discontent about the apparent disconcolence of the management citing the huge public investment that has gone into Ravenspan. Could Logan's biggest achievement be his downfall?

Logan's biggest achievement has been blagging his way through the last 8 years.

If he did deliver the stadium, why did he deliver it without sufficient legroom for anyone over 6ft?

Good Call, maybe the Q-chube could give it a blast before the match and dedicate it to "that BTSport Ballix".

#Istandupwiththebasketcases

Well, I did...................... but I donated my shirt & ST to Terry Slogan after the Weegies match.

That's what is wrong with the country in general, in fact most of the world in general now, too many people are too easily annoyed and the majority now bow down to the minority complaints. By that I don't say that blatant racism is fine but a bit of friendly slagging between two friends of different race is fine in my eyes same as a bit of friendly slagging between friends of different religion. In fact these days some of the stick we give Shan and he gives back in return would be frowned upon yet at the same time neither him or us have any complaints and take it as it is meant to be, a friendly bit of banter.
Anyone who gets all worked up about the lyrics of a song is a very narrow minded arsehole indeed :stout: :cowboy: :party:

Can't wait to see how they attempt to dress it up.... anyway someone with his huge business experience i.e. Head of Coca-Cola and Managing Director of BP (no mention of the Yates Group or Youth Justice) will not be long out of a job plus there is always a market in today's world for someone with his military experience (12weeks regular army goes a long way)

Agreed - Meat Hook Sodomy by Cannibal Corpse could suit if you want yer team to tear the opposition apart. :D :D
Butchery my meat hooks sharpened to penetrate
Emasculate, gouging crotches I will eat
Hung upside down, holes punctured through half chewed
Gristle, debauchery with dead bodies, turning green
Upheaveal of human entrails
Deterioration of grated genitals, dangling from the hooks
Obscene feelings deep inside me
Dislocating, separating a blood
Drenched body
Begin the anal grounting
Awaiting insertion, to rip out intestine
Bodily destruction
Vulgar molestation
Treachery never ending soul ripping
Lifeless Bodies not, petrified
Cloggins veins
Presure building
Scabbing clotted sores dehydrate
Condemned to life of obscurity
Dismal dimensions of my being, I explore my thoughts through murder
Devoting my life to mutilation
Screams of blood saturate, grubs feed on dilapidated
Stumps, darkness overshadowing the killing
Eyes now dialate
Bodies disintegrate
Razor sharp hooks implanted in your rectum
Splitting bodies, spilling guts on the ground
Sodomizing living beings with my utensils
Stabbing on your life stripped of all your skin
Disgusting to the world
Beauty to my eyes
The body lying naked, discharging my infection
Invigorating while I kill, intoxicating
Invoking suffering on human beings
Grinding orifices my only therapy
Sculpting gore
Muscle tissue
Reshaping
Mounds of flesh, deformation
Skulls of victims stacked like trophies
Bleeding from your Brennan sudden blood ejection
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.

I'm over 6'. I have plenty of leg room ;)

And I thought Shan was a Daniel O'Donnell fan. :D
Maybe it was Daniel O' Connell?
