Flegs – the answer (it’s really obvious you know…)

  1. “We don’t mind though I must admit I have a preference for the Norn Iron Fleg. If it’s good enough for the changing room at Ravers it’s good enough for me!”

    …..wot he said +1

  2. I don’t care!!!!!
    Some will use any stick to beat; (a) rugby (b) Ulster.
    Get over it! 😀

  3. If this is the type of article DL is going to post I would rather he would post it on the UAFC message board so it can get the attention it deserves.

  4. Agree with Raven. While i admire DL for his posts to date – the FRU has been a “Flag-free zone” and I for one would prefer it to stay that way. Said it before and i’ll say it again. I’ll wave whatever bloody flag I choose to. No-one else’s business, nor should it be. The FRU says “NO!” to the Flag Police. 😆

  5. Raging Raven and Glynn, I understand that ‘fleg’ related articles aren’t to everyone’s taste, and in fact when I sent this across to John I made clear that I was happy enough if he didn’t fancy publishing it. However I don’t believe that I said anything untoward, and surely the conclusion, that Ulster should join just about every other rugby club in Europe in having club flags widely available, is unobjectionable? I would also point out that nowhere do I say that people shouldn’t fly whatever flags they please – of course they should. However facts are facts, and I stand by every one I run through in the article.

    Anyway keep on reading, sure it would be boring if you agreed with me all the time 😉

  6. DL I made no comment whatsoever on your article other than said you should have posted it elsewhere. As you are well aware this type of post has lead to bitter recriminations and long running feuds between posters on other message forums, we here at the FRU are a more friendly lot and take things less seriously. The only thing we work hard at is trying to make new friends and having a good time through supporting the game we love, rugby.

    It was interesting that you considered your article factual and not your own opinion so in future I will refer to you when I require any information on the “Flags of Ulster”. :roll:

    Keep up the good work……. it keeps the readers interested. 😛

    1. We are indeed a broad and welcoming church at the Front Row Union – bit like the ulster squad, but without the daily scripture meetings!

      I literally thought I’d run this one up the flag pole and see who salutes but from now on everyman’s opinion on flegs will remain their own!

      It really is a Norn Iron infatuation though, for as I sit in my workstation in Galway my Ulster flag is in pride of place in my cubicle beside a Connacht fleg with a couple of Munster flegs in the far corner and a great big Leinseter fleg across the way, we all get together every morning and sing Ireland’s call and then the Connacht guys come round and thank me for taking Niall O’Connor back!

  7. RR – it is sprinkled with a fair bit of my opinion, but the facts in it are facts… Specifically relating to the NI flag. Anyway I’ve said my piece, I’ll leave it there, and don’t worry I have no plan to pen a piece about anthems 😉

  8. DL – well said. My own piece on “Plastic Paddys” will remain in the drawer. 😛

  9. Hate to say it, but this debate has flagged after only 7 posts, a record for the minimum number of posts made on a flagging issue. 🙂

  10. Parky you are right. I see Darkside is STILL at it on the UAFC message board. He obviously has a problem and should seek help. :roll:
