    Other than implying that McGregor is running for president, which wouldn’t even be the most preposterous thing this month, I’m not sure what Ultan is meant to be saying about the IT here

      I have read and re-read the two headlines. My only advance on “Hmm” is as follows: “Hmm?”

          Having had some email ‘handbags’ only last week where I was called ‘nuts’ by a senior IT-er, I would also like to add another:”Hmm.”

            I suggested ‘mentally unstable’, it being the Irish Times, but he was into the whole brevity thing which I can totally appreciate.

    Well if this doesn’t prove the Irish media is literally worse than Hitler, I don’t know what does.

    Another coup for broadsheet, take that the journal!

            I’m picturing the napkin as being damp with condensation from that Mojito you’re enjoying.

    Does Bodger post ever negative thing he sees or gets sent which relates to the IT? I can only presume he has some personal beef with it considering how much attention is paid to it rather than the Indo, Examiner or any of the tabloids.

      Darn, I hate missing comments… I want to read her speech when I’m less knackered. Pity she didn’t give INM the finger when they demanded confidentiality around her settlement all the same.

    I don’t know if anyone cares let alone knows why McGregor was pictured in this situation…

    Irelands own self marketing and pr terminator, sent from the future to destroy us all btw.. is sticking two fingers up to Khabib Nurgagomedov.

    Khabib, who is his only possible next challenger without McEire looking like a loser, is from the Dagestani region of Russia that causes Herr Putski the most problems internally.

    I would bet anything that this is the only reason it happened, if not McEire is exploiting his luck and a great opportunity to play more fight-night mind games with us all.

    The rest of it is just.. hmmmmm?..

    The whole thing is hilarious, excuses for him are unnecessary, certainly not from me…

    All things considered, he’s taken a very minimal amount of damage for the level and frequency he’s competed at but yes, he definitely up’s the ante and doubles down on his mouth each time.

    Yes, I’m his sparring partner and I patrol the internet on his behalf in my spare time because I’ve been kicked in head kicked in the head way too often.
