    GAA gets higher ratings than Ireland Qualifier

    So much hatred for the GAA and I never seen the same on the Hoganstand.com. And they say GAA supporters are bitter and backward?

    when the eleven a side forums were moved to hoganstand.com, the amount of trolling from regular posters got so bad the mods had to get involved
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    So much hatred that there hadn't been a post in this thread for close to two years until your post.

    I found this while doing a goggle looking for something. Had to comment after reading it. I don't get the hatred.

    Do a search for "Shamrock Rovers Thomas Davis".

    The poppy is no longer just for WW1. It is for all of Britain's war dead. Including the Black and Tans, soldiers in the north etc.
    I'm not mad about people commemorating an imperialist war but understand people honouring the dead of that terrible war (WW 1).

    But the propoganda that comes with the poppy every year with soldiers opening rugby and soccer games with military parades, X-Factor having a charity single for their war heroes in Afghanistan etc is absolutely ridiculous and sickening really.

    The poppy is also used as a tool to show 'our boys' in Afghanistan some support.
    A few years ago it was for 'our boys' in the North of Ireland.

    Why is it double standards?
    You're insinuating that the GAA is anti-everything-that-is-English.
    And that's just ridiculous talk.
