On Kimmage. He did fail a test.Point out which of the above I disagree with?
Never said Munster condoned cheating. Said a player received a 2 year ban on their watch. True. Was still banned for 3 months.
No idea why you're bringing up the case on a Leinster player.
Point out where I said that journalist doesn't write for the Independent please. What he said was true, Munster signed a player who was banned for taking steroids. Can you agree with that or is it fake news too? You may not like how he told the story but the basic fact behind it is undeniable.
Paul Kimmage has nothing got to do with this. He also didn't fail a drugs test. He admitted he took them in his book Rough Ride (great read) and crusades against drug taking in sport. Nothing wrong with that. He pointed out that Philip Browne said the IRFU had a stated zero tolerance policy to drugs and Munster signing Gerbrandt Grobler flies in the face of that. He's correct. Again, you may not like the fact that he pointed out hypocrisy but he didn't lie. Can you admit that?
I couldn't care less what Ger Gilroy thinks. He's making the same points as Kimmage and O'Connor though. Their points are correct even though you don't like how they were delivered. Why are you using him to attack myeslf and other Leinster posters on this site?
Point out where I moaned about Munster getting financial support for Thomond Park please.
I find it ironic that you're pointing out that people like me "only listen to what you want to hear and don't see the full picture". Isn't that exactly what you're doing?! I'd say I'm very balanced in how I express my opinions and call things how I see them regardless of where I'm from and who I support.
Think Munster will beat Toulon in the quarter final in Thomond Park. Clermont or Racing away in the semi will be a much tougher proposition.
Chris Farrell again looked good in my limited viewing of yesterday's game.
On rest I never said you disagreed. Just put out facts.
Never said you said journalist doesn't write for Independent. Said you liked it.
Also Leinster player case is valid as it helps support reason why alot feel there is bias.
On Frankie Sheehan case it was paperwork filled out on IRFU watch that was issue and not their fault either.
Also Kimmage has alot to do with as I pointed out if it not a personal attack on 1 player why keep going after him. Why keep slating the Munster name. Why keep being factually not accurate on reporting of Munster.
On rest I never said you moaned I painted an overall view of press who are a bit bias. As I said not all Leinster fans are bad and not even fans as it the buyer journalism more than anything.
Can I also ask what I posted that is fair news?
I have no problem with balance. I am one who never said Grobler or drugs was a direct attack and praised guys like Thornley and co who raised it and argued it accurately.
I'm just pointing out facts or proof for better word why people like Kimmage are gutter press and more so pick and choose who to attack. He's a hypocritical gutter journalist in many people' views who seems to have no credible respect.
As I said I'm not saying you are unfair all the time but it is understandable why Munster fans do get ****** off due to aimed attacks by Independent for Munster simply calling them up on things.
