Roscommon where blowing out the hole after 20 minutes not fit or do they have physique to operate in croke park......

I'm told by those in the know he hasn't much time for S&C.
Nor defensive organisation either.
I am not aware of the team having S&C or defence gurus.
Anyway we're technically still in the race for a semi final spot so all is not lost yet  we're the least likely of the 8 to make it.

Shark - I see your point  but I was just thinking of our history of army bucks. Even poor Dermot didn't do very well.

Attack me and avoid the obvious points I made.
Ignore 4-24.
Ignore "we don't need a defensive coach"
Ignore disdain for S &C.
Ignore a disorganised team.
Good night.

Whatever happened to Donie Shine?

New managers come in. They get rid of a few of the stars from the previous regime under the ruse of giving youth a chance. Carr, Maughan, McStay, all guilty in this regard. We have such a huge pick in Ros, it makes it easy for them. That last line is sarcastic cos you never know with a few of ours.
Army officers  are not good amateur sport managers.
Most GAA activists I've talked to today reckon McStay is a busted flush and has been found out.
No defensive organisation,  terrible fitness, strength and conditioning levels, random team selections -one buck reckons we pick names out of 1 hat and jersey numbers out of another hat.
That sort of stuff can happen in year 1 of any regime but by year 3 you expect those type of things to be sorted out.
We may be no world beaters but fck it you expect management to have some kind of pattern and organisation to make the team better after 3 years.

53k.
As I said before its a 3 games series so the casual fans won't be travelling when they have a home match  ( 2 for Dublin) coming up.

How do we go about getting our game v Dublin off TV and also getting it moved to Parnell Park.

Roscommon hurlers and the other 15 or 16 hurling teams from football Counties never had crowds.
I would say at least 90 % of the population of Roscommon never saw a Ros hurling match either club or County.
And you can add 15 or 16 other Counties to that.
The Rackards etc are competitions for hurling teams from football Counties.

McStay sounded a broken man on off the ball.
Probably dawning on him that his disdain for defending and S & C mightn't be such a good idea after all.

2015 Nicky Rackard Cup Final.
Totally irrelevant question.

It does but  the hope is gone.
I will never see Ros in an All Ireland Senior final.
The "little" Counties can't compete any more.
Quicker the second tier comes in so that we might win a game at Croker the better.
Playing div 2 football winning games against weaker teams was no use to Roscommon playing in a second tier would be the same. .

We were in D1 in 2016 and we weren't fit for 2 big games in successive weeks.
We were in D1 in 2017 and we weren't fit for 2 big games in successive weeks.
We aren't fit for 2 big games in successive weeks in 2018  not because we were in D2 but because our players are obviously physically unfit and unconditioned to do so.
FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN SUCCESSION.
That's criminal.

Great read. The people pushing for a tiered competition always seem to be from Kerry, Dublin or Tyrone or else involved in broadcast media who would have a massive vested interest.

You don't commit to the games to be on YouTube or a 10 second clip on Twitter.
I'm getting fed up seeing Sligo on TV every week......

I left after our game for obvious reasons.
Most neutrals now watch games on TV and the slack jawed peasant looking in awe at a Croke Park is a thing of the past.
These quarter finals are a 3 games series so people will go to their home game and might or might not choose to go to the other 2 games.

Gough is pretty picky about enforcing the rules too isn't he?

He sure is, the peno was a joke......


Best team by far won but the inability of the Rosvommon line to identify Sludden and Harte as needing detailed marking begars belief.

I don't think either mayo man hsve a f**king clue and our appalling lack of fitness  is criminal
+100.
Not the cool clean hero's  finest hour.
Ya'd expect lads to be fit enough for this time of year.
Time to bite bullets.
