Thanks to..

The Sunday Tribune, who published a nice little piece about us today. I’ve typed it out in full for those of you that are interested..

“Slugger O’Toole has far and away the most wide-ranging coverage of Northern Ireland, and has tracked the follow-up from last week, including the backlash from the McCartney family, with a decent respect for both sides. For sheer entertainment value, however, just pick one of the postings with the maximum number of comments.

But the most passionate debate of the week on that site (and the Irish blogosphere) came on Wednesday, on the proposal by George Best for an all-Ireland soccer squad. One reader kicked off a storm by posting his reaction: ‘oh dear. Look like it’ll be the Derek Dougan treatment for George from now on. He should realise this is Ireland and you aren’t supposed to make such logical points as that!'”

That’ll be PS enjoying the press treatment..

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
