Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling
« on: Today at 09:08:15 AM »
alot of the players haven't been in form. I would personally like to see more changes to create more competition. Rory Brennan in at half back could be an option. Harry loughran looked sharp up front when he came on against meath. Oneill had a good game in nets the last day. Has to stay in for the Carlow game.

I was a bit disappointed with Harry Loughran against Meath, he just seemed a yard or two off the pace and struggled to win a few balls that came his way. He does however, seem to have an uncanny knack of being in the right place to score goals...which always makes him a valuable option.

Try not to fix one provincial final on its own one weekend then 3 provincial finals and a rake of qualifiers the next.

Or they could just ban hurling.

Tyrone Team V Carlow?:
O'Neill
McGeary McNamee Hampsey
McKernan Burns McCann
Cavanagh McNulty
Meyler Harte Mattie
McShane Richie D McAliskey

No Sludden? Meyler half back for McCann (whether he’s suspended or not) and Sludden in number 10. He’s not playing great but we need to let him play himself into form again, otherwise that’s pretty much how I’d see the starting 15 too. Interesting to see if Morgan gets a recall. Also I’d expect McNulty to get called ashore at half time for McClure.

Good luck with the petition and highlighting such an injustice and sending that visible support. If it's through the GAA so be it. There is so much support has gone out from Ireland to the oppressed people of Palestine both moral support and in the way of aid. Pay no heed to the tory "Im alright fuc you Jack" crowd.

Whatever your political view, and there can't be many in the GAA who disagree with the sentiments that John and the others are trying to promote, the real question is whether the GAA should be used as a vehicle to promote this. If my memory serves me correctly, you yourself were very critical of Mickey Harte's use of the GAA to promote his views on the abortion debate (I agreed with you I'm most definitely not trying to reignite that debate here - but it is a case in point) and if we allow expressions of any political / divisive view points become the norm in the GAA then we are heading into very muddy waters. People can protest all they want, about whatever issue they want to protest about outside the ground, canvas opinions of GAA folk as they sup their pints in the pubs, encourage them to sign the petitions and get involved with the campaign. But I'm afraid I would come down on the side of the argument that once inside the ground we should be concentrating on the hurling and the football.

Why are the VAR refs wearing a full kit? Is John Terry the head of the Referees committee?

So Armagh are appealing all 10 suspensions. Ffs, the GAA disciplinary procedures are utterly useless. Does the Armagh Co Board really believe that not one Armagh player deserves a suspension? Like I said before, a newly rewritten rule book is needed so loopholes are eliminated and decisions are more water tight. I’d double suspensions if appeals are unsuccessful.

No doubt those posters falling over themselves to condemn Tyrone’s appeal last week will be doing the same again here??

Are we really appealing all ten? That’s a joke.

The bench emptying. 10+ suspensions suggests serious misconduct no matter how you'd like to view it.

Are anyone of those suspensions for something worse than the flying shoulder?

If you seriously want to have a discussion about a hierarchy of misdemeanours I would start off by saying that the coach of an underage team getting involved in a brawl with underage players top trumps nearly everything I’m afraid.

How big a loss is Sean Cavanagh?

Can't help but think he'd have carried us over the line v Monaghan as well as put Meath to sleep long before the final whistle last week, even yet.

Maybe Mickey should give him a ring and recall him to the panel?

I don't think I've ever even met someone from Carlow before. What are they like?

Tough start for new manager but could be ideal time to play City with a lot of their players at WC. Also the club seem to be very proactive in transfer market which is good to see and trying to get deals done quickly rather than haggle over every pound.

Ehh.. you're seeing so many moves early this year because it's a WC year and teams want their transfers done and not severely delayed by waiting till after it's over. Also in many cases there's the real fear their transfer targets may play well in the WC and hence jack up the price the parent club demands for them.

And the transfer window shuts on August 9th before the season starts this year.

Having been at the game I didn't get the impression that Armagh set out to start a row.  It just escalated from a few Tyrone players starting to taunt, goad and wrestle with their opponents in the last minute of extra time.  Don't understand why they simply did not focus on gaining possession, holding onto the ball and seeing out the last minute of the game.  Sad statement on the state of things that after a magnificent effort from both sides that the focus of a few players at the end was to try and humiliate and taunt their opponents.  Does not at all excuse the bench clearing rush from Armagh and scenes that followed.  But Armagh did not start a row because they thought they were beaten.

The elephant in the room here is Tyrone and their complete lack of class. This is a county where most of the population dress like its 2001 and grown men still think it acceptable to run about with their hair dyed blonde using their sister’s peroxide.

So when it comes to seeing out a game in the dying minutes, instead of just getting the job done, this utter ballbagness that is ingrained into every Tyronie from the day they’re born comes to the fore. Of course things backfired, and being the shower of yaps that they are would rather see Armagh out as well as themselves just to be spiteful c***ts.

Reminds me of nights out in Armagh and Cookstown back in the day, they were the same then when Armagh boys curted their women, started rows because they all they were left with was to curt their cousins on the bus home

Its the genuine pain in this sort of post, knowing that it was caused by Tyrone, which brings me the most joy. Armagh actually won the game and we still can bring this out in them. Much as i'd like us to withdraw the appeal (you have suffered enough) in many ways this is classic Armagh baiting from our county board. I'd nearly forgotten how enjoyable it was to read the desperate ramblings of Armagh posters. Brings back fond memories of 2003 and 2005. Good times  8)

Just man up and take your batin ye shower of bog dwelling midgets

I'll refer you to the Armagh supporters response after 2003. We had to beat you again in 2005 to hammer home the point.

I wonder will there be the same level of critique for Donegal appealing the red card at the weekend? Will there fk.

This culture of appealing every red card is a blight on the game. McGee left the knee in about 4 times and still they are appealing the decision. Maybe the ref forgot to hole punch his report so Donegal have them on a technicality.
