    I can do epics indeed but in this case i dont care, its off the chest now and covid regulations at thish stage would fill the TCD library!! Maybe its my way of hitting back at having to actually know any of the damn regulations!! 5th revision of relevant protocols landed on us this week ffs!!!

If the public get the impression that lockdown regulations are being stretched at elite levels of sport, among other things, then the wider efforts drop off. The perception here is that there seemed to be a lot more 'stewards' dotted around the ground than would be needed for a bcd match. Specific to Friday night it was said 'if' rules are being bent or broken then there should be consequences whatever that might be. By all means defend a club but question should be asked also if things look out of order.
    I think they'd have more to worry about if they get caught opening the bar to their chosen few a couple of nights a week.

    You would think that with the size of the Aviva they might be able to allow a few fans from both sides in to the final. Maybe 500/1000 each ? Donít suppose itís likely though.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Yeah and there were these random images of 3 or so people weaking hi-viz bibs in an entire stand! Even FG had the run of the entire stadium bar the dugouts.

    I suppose context is everything Nesta , my feeling was that when you look at the carry on in the GAA , mass celebrations etc and some of the other stuff going on house parties etc i was saying that some extra stewards in an outside setting is something i wouldn't get to excited about in the context of how well the clubs have dealt with covid despite not really having the resources.
    Accept your point that its a slippery slope and that's hard to argue with.

    In context of a comparison yeah it would be harsh to say fine 4 or 5 people when hundreds congregated for the Cork club championship, marching to their ground, in such numbers that it would be harder to identify. I will admit that the body armour was wearing thin when I was ranting the other night - not that the vast majority of what I said I meant. I just feel there is duty of care for each and every individual to eachother. Some have abdicated that responsibility and there shouldnt be any pardon without legitimate reason. I would include people not using common sense - if somehwere like a shopping centre, football match, tesco, are within regulations but are still risky, then stay away and flag the risk. It's an attitude that is not apologist and what is needed. We only have to look North to see how the soft, placating policy, people at games eg, in and out of lockdown, places opening and now closing again - and the numbers are out of control 3 or 4 weeks out from the Christmas superspreader season. We dont have to look far to see what we'd be in for if people start winging it!!!

    I was listening to one of the LOi podcasts last week and it seemed awful strange when Pat Fenlon was comenting that they are allowed 600 at Linfield matches, its like its a different country or planet up there....

    600 people seems small in a 20k modern stadium, yet it has been identified as a risk that wasnt worth it. Proportionately it'd be interesting to see the numbers to capacity ratio for Dalymount and other grounds and the indication is that this ratio needs to drop based on the experiences elsewhere. The main risks ate the chokepoints eg toilets, railings at steps entering/exiting a stand. If 100 people used the railing....would it be disinfected every 10 minutes as per protocols in shops1?

    different country or planet - at times it feels like both and I am 8km away....no smart comments on Dundalk!!

    Not only that but see in England next week max of 2k fans will be allowed into grounds depending on what part of country were COVID is rampant. Very strange decision making imo.

    When’s the last time one of the cup semi finals wasn’t broadcast on RT…? Excluding replays which they never show.

    sligo got blown away just before halftime last time in tallaght but up to that point they had given us more of a game them most teams this season.
    We should win tommorow with our best 11 out but as harps showed, its the cup anything is possible.

    It'll be closer than the league game, which I think was flattering on us. We were 2-0 down at half time against Harps and we will have to play better than that against a better side.

    Gonna be more difficult for Rovers today as both Greene & O'Neill are absent through Injury. I'd expect to see Dean Williams up front and maybe see Bolger in midfield. Also no Bradley on the sidelines. I'd take a scratchy 1 nil win now.
