Darragh Canavan forearm smash to the head after he lost the ball was a lot more dangerous than what o'neill did. If one is a red, the other should be

Kerry forwards very good at fouling the Armagh men coming out. Slows the attack down. Smart play.

Is it a bad thing though?

I remember when I was a minor (way, way back) going to London for 6-7 weeks mid summer and missing 1 game. Thereís probably some compromise here between these two extremes, but Gaelic football is its best when itís a summer sport. Fill the summer months I say.

Fill the summer months is right. But the way the calendar is this year, over half of the u17, 15 and 13 kids in the county will play their last game of the year at the start of August with 3 or 4 weeks of the summer left. In previous years most kids would be playing championship group games til near the end of August.

Is it me or are championships getting earlier? Underage championships have begun already and premier reserves and reserve championships down to the last 8.

Itís just you, when do you want them played

You're right Truth Hurts. The underage championships all seem to be about a month earlier than usual. Quarters and semis in August and finals very early in September. Gonna cause some teams real headaches with kids away on holidays, gaekteacht etc. No idea why the calendar was changed, the reason the knock out games were usually played in September was to avoid this.

Unfortunately, if the Tory c#nt Boris is removed, he will be replaced by another Tory c#nt. Nothing will change until the next General election. And probably not even then

Would the lack of success at St Colmans indicate not all is well in Down football? Abbey never produced but been a while since Colmans won anything of sort.

The presentation of the 2019/20 Danske Bank MacRory Cup has taken place with the winning captains from St Patrickís Maghera and St Colmanís Newry. The Final had been rescheduled to take place earlier this month, but a decision was taken to cancel this owing to the current public health situation. As a result, the trophy was shared between the two finalists. 🤔

Bad state of affairs when Colmans are clinging on to a shared trophy. I'd seriously doubt they'd have beat a star studded Maghera side (back boned Derry minor AI winning team). I can't remember when they last won a Rannafast or Corn na Nog.

St colman's won the 19/20 Rannafast and went on to win the All Ireland.

If the final electoral college numbers are close, faithless electors could come in to play.

Clinton lost 5 in 2016 and Trump lost 2.

So anyone fancy a prediction. I really think Trump will win with maybe one state less than last time. Polls seem to be tightening and recent history shows that the polls skew left.
Hope I'm wrong but I fear 4 more years of Trump.

Kilcoo have not been good champions at any level. Always something that puts a dark cloud over all teams and thatís why and it pains me to say it Burren win today. Burren are a great club who respect all teams. Kilcoos minor championship team has been somewhat massively turnised with some disgraceful stuff on route to the final. I wonder who they take after
unfortunately sledging is part of the game now ,at every level,we even seen it in the all ireland ,was the kilcoo players sledging for no reason?did the bridge players  not say or do anything  to kilcoo players? I think not! Anyway it's the same old cliche # don't give what you cant take back🤔
Are you implying that the Bridge lads said something as bad to the Kilcoo lads?  A really hope you're not

Couple of big weeks ahead in the season...What's everyone's predictions for Saturday's games? Lots of permutations possible...

Rostrevor v Mayobridge-Surely Mayobridge will win that against a Rostrevor side that have obviously packed up tools for the year
Downpatrick v Bryansford-Both need to win, think Bryansford will win in a close game
Castlewellan v CPN-Castlewellan to beat the point handy, point surely bubble wrapping players over the next 10days
Ballyholland v Burren-Harps to win by 4...Burren have given up the ghost too, apparently they aren't training or anything.

Think if those results go to plan, that means RGU go down and Castlewellan would play Ballyholland in a Playoff? Would be good value for the neutrals if Harps and Hoops played out a relegation decider...If Downpatrick beat the Ford and those other results go as predicted, am I right in saying that would leave Castlewellan straight down and RGU playing Bryansford in a relegation playoff?


Are the point and Mayobridge safe enough no matter what? Head hurts looking at that league table...  :-\
                                            Diff  Pts
6   Cumann Pheadair Naofa        9   18
7   Mayobridge                         -3   16
8   Bryansford                          -23  16
9   Ballyholland                        -49  16
10   RGU Downpatrick              -58   12
11   Castlewellan                     -54   11

I'm presuming the tie-breaker is score difference.

If Bryansford and Ballyholland get a better result than 'Bridge, 'Bridge will end up in playoff as they are all on same points.  The score diff means that 3 wins would probably put Ballyholland in playoff.

If CPN lose by 9 say, and bridge win by 4, 'Ford win by 24 and Harps win by 50, then CPN in playoff  :o

Feile is on in Connacht this weekend, so accommodation for any Armagh fans will be hard to come by. Also, there are games scheduled for McHale park on Saturday afternoon in Feile

I see the U16.5 All Ireland Final involving St Colmans is down to be played at the National GAA Centre in Abbotstown.  Never been there but a quick search shows that there isn't much of a stand at it (maybe only 200 seats) and no banking around the pitch.  I know the game might only draw 6 or 700 people, but it seems like a strange venue.  Spectators will be stretched out around the fence and it won't have the atmosphere you would associate with a colleges game.
