    Me: (Knowing this is going nowhere good) Uh, yeah, sure.

    Him: I was watching part of that Dundalk game the other night, they did very well.

    Me: "Bland agreement, waiting for the inevitable"

    Him: (In deadly earnest) Can I ask you, do you know why Dundalk are called the Lilywhites?

    Me: Well, I suppose because they play in mostly white?

    Him: Yes, but aren't Kildare the Lilywhites?

    Me: Sure, but, I mean, two different teams could have the same nickname.

    Him: "Frowning, turns away" Just seems like a bit of a cop-out.

    Me: "Genuinely at a loss for how to respond."
    Kildare are also known as the 'flourbags'.

    Thought this was just as good a thread as any for this if it is actually gaining real traction - talk about turkeys voting for Christmas...

    All 20 league clubs and other stakeholders were represented at the seminar, which was addressed by the eight-club group that have put together a proposal on the future format of the league....The proposals met with a positive response from the 20 clubs...

    This cropped up on RTE and couldnt decide on a relevant thread so this will do. Its not a real facepalm moment but it is a retrospective one. Apologies Rovers fans as some of it cant be easy watching after what transpired until SDCC gave a dig out.
