    A series of ugly brawls at GAA matches - is violence getting out of hand in Gaelic football?

    Is violence at Gaelic football getting out of control? Brawls at a string of recent GAA matches have led to concerns the game's reputation is being tarnished by violence. One former GAA star has described some of the recent fights as thuggery in the Irish News this week. Recently there were scenes of fighting just off the pitch between players and others at Sunday's match between Downpatrick Russell Gaelic Union and Ballyholland Harps. This followed an on pitch brawl on Thursday between Slaughtneil and Ballinderry reserves. So does Gaelic football have a problem with on-field violence? Is it any worse than soccer or rugby? And if so, what's the solution? Vinny spoke to sports journalist Steven Beacom and commentator Daithi McKay.

    UFC mass brawl, and will be ever see a female Bond?

    It should have been a showcase of mixed martial arts excellence but UFC 229 in Las Vegas went from being a spectacular night of MMA to one of the most controversial events in the sport's history. Violent skirmishes broke out following Khabib Nurmagomedov's victory over Conor McGregor. This isn't the first time that there have been ugly scenes that have involved Conor McGregor, earlier this year he was involved in a backstage melee at a New York City arena in which he was caught on camera hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters. He was sentenced to community service. Is McGregor becoming bad for the sport? Vinny got the views of commentators Brendan Mulgrew and Chris Suitor.Also on the podcast, James Bond will "probably" never be played by a female actress, the film series' executive producer has said. Barbara Broccoli, who is in charge of casting 007, told the Guardian: "Bond is male. He's a male character. He was written as a male and I think he'll probably stay as a male." But after 26 movies is it time for a female Bond? Vinny got the views of commentators Emma Woolf and Lembit Opik.
