Two threads shall suffice for now.

However, next week as we all try to come to grips with the latest results and Festival fallout, certain debates may spill on into other threads. But we'll cross that hurdle when we come to it.

There was one thread about the Festival itself and one about the monetary aspect of things. Two entirely different things.

A thread called Horse Racing could be about anything. The latest point-to-point in Mallow, the road to the Kentucky Derby, Sea The Stars goes to stud, how can all those topics be considered the same thing?

Suppose we have to make room for the growing sport that is dentistry. Whens the world tooth pulling championships? Jeez, I hope it dosen't clash with Cheltenham, the racing industry will be hit hard with all the dentistry fans amongst us.

Ignorance Loyal?

This is a GAA site, not a site for horse racing. If this site were to fail, it would be because of your constant moaning about things on this site that nobody else seems to have a problem with. Horse racing topics are getting out of hand. Want to talk about betting? There is a topic for it. Want to talk about horse racing? There is a topic for it. Majority of the posters couldnt care less about Cheltenham, if they did they would go on to a horse racing forum, not look on a GAA forum.

If its a GAA site, why don't you just delete the Non GAA section? Surely the existence of such a forum is to cater for Non GAA topics?

The Cheltenham Festival is a religion to the Irish people. To suggest that no posters have any interest in it is typical of someone with a Southside Nancy boy attitude. Vincent O'Brien and Paddy Prendergast are heroes. And this is how you repay them? Obvious you spent a few years in England, typical Brit thinking.

Please check out the Betfair Cheltenham 2010 forum and you will find lots of my preachings on there. Also lots on AnFearRua, a proper GAA site that has dedicated Cheltenham tipsters and all. It appreciates the close link between the GAA and horse-racing, not like this Brit-infested "GAA" site.

Typical brit thinking? You truely are a joke Loyal. I dont know a lot about Horse racing, but last time I checked wasn't Cheltenham in England? So that makes it an English racing festival right? Also, GAA is the most dominant sport in Ireland [which believe it or not, is what this site is about], not horse racing. Have I or any other administrators banned horse racing chat on this forum? No.

To be honest, I dont even know why this is being discussed. There is a horse racing topic, thats all there is going to be. It makes moderating this site a lot easier if it is all under the one topic.

You have taken the next closest step to banning it without actually doing deed, lumping it all into one thread. Indeed, if memory serves me right, RMD headed up a campaign to have it banned once.

It is an Irish dominated Festival, the horses are all bred in Ireland with a few notable exceptions coming from France in recent times and the jockeys are mostly Irish bred too. Even a number of trainers listed as English, are actually Irish. Ferdy Murphy is the most obvious one.

The World Cup is being held in South Africa, dosen't mean the South Africans started soccer. Jump racing originated in Ireland. Long before any O'Neills ball was ever pumped, point to points were being held around the country.

Appalling comment. If you don't appreciate the jockeyship skills involved in racing, then it makes me wonder how Mrs. RMD ever managed to throw out that sprog. No offence.

You are missing the point, is it or is it not a British festival?

As for South Africa, there is a clue in the title, it is a world cup. Hosted by different countries every four years.

If memory serves me right, I let you keep horse racing, and still am.

LOL. Good man Loyal. Proper sites indeed. I for one will miss you and hope you are back to educate us soon.

Might see if we can stick up a running timer that shows the time without Loyal. Please god it will be measured in minutes rather than hours. It's with a heavy heart that I sign off tonight

Never heard of it. Why have a Non GAA forum if items of a Non GAA description are not going to be allowed? You are incapable of running this forum.

Because there are a variety of different topics that can be talked about. You post a new Horse racing topic almost every week. So now to save you the bother, there is just one horse racing topic.

Ah I'm only rising to be honest. I don't like it and I don't think it's a support but there are loads of people that enjoy it so I think it should be discussed on here as much as people want. Too many threads though is an annoyance for all posters so things have to be kept within reason.

Stalin purged his best men and was then within inches of being overrun by the forces of darkness. You are in danger of making the same mistake.

Bad form messing with the racing threads a week before the Festival.
I assume your now going to amalgamate all the soccerball threads into one now as well.
