If they beat Moy, is this Rostrevor team capable of going all the way and winning the AI?

Not sure, the Kavanaghs were formidable in the first semi-final for Moy and will be hard to handle. Rostrevor are a very young team, and were electric for the first 15 mins, when they built a winning lead, but seemed to lose composure afterwards. It would be great to see them win, especially for Sean Parr, who has been one of the best footballers in the county for the last ten years; if he'd been on the pitch against Cork in 2010 we might have taken Sam home

That's where it went wrong.

Gender is a social invention. Boys don't cry. Girls wear pink. Girls have long hair. Boys do STEM subjects. Girls don't.

You don't have to accept it. Everyone should understand their emotions. We need more women leading things
Your 1st statement is balls, pun intended  :).  Your last statement is spot on.
Sex is a natural state found everywhere.
Gender is not.
Different societies see gender differently.  Most American tribes are matriarchies for example. Women call the shots.
Most Christian societies are patriarchies . Because God in Christianity is male.

I think pre Christian Ireland was a matriarchy  because the seasons were managed by 2 women. Brid and the Cailleach.

England has been a patriarchy for a long time. The word for the worst type of person is the word from where the babies come from. That would not happen in a matriarchy.

In Irish the word for where the babies come from is inoffensive.  It is on all the motorway signs.
But you could not have the word CUN* on motorway signs thall Ó Sasana. You must be joking.

Seafoid what the hell do you actually do for a living.
You post some serious confusing nonsense on a regular basis its as if youre constantly drunk and just come out with non stop verbal diorhea.
Your posts make my head hurt

Gender neutral. What the actual f**k.
These people need to be locked up in the same cell as mothers in-law, hippy fuckwit vegans etc.
Worlds cowped already without these eejits running amok.

Why not just post in here instead of a standalone site.
It was a sanitised forum with no real room for proper debate and discourse. Yes some things were getting out of hand and should have been dealt with ie ban the individual and not close the thread.
It also seems a few clubs/individuals don't like being criticised.

Why would that mean the end of him as a footballer?

I didn't know Maradonna played GAA.
Never heard of "Maradonna" but I have heard of Maradona and he played football, association football. There is no such sport as GAA. There is a sport called Gaelic football however, which Connolly plays.

Your rationale for not rating Connolly as a great player is on the basis of his "temperament, character and reliability", so on the basis of that you'd also have to not rate Maradona as a great player given that he frequently let his temperament get the better of him, had a dubious character and was sent home from a World Cup for failing a drugs test and served a year's ban in 1991-92, so "reliability" wasn't his strong point.

Maradona was also the greatest association football player in history, and there have been many other great players in different sports who have had dubious "temperament, character and reliability", so your assertion as it relates to Connolly is nonsense.

Ok. Youre right.
That's how his name is spelt after all and again youre right, there is no sport called GAA.
Association Football. Great stuff.

I went to see him play for Vincents against Slaughtneil last year and was expecting him to really shine but in fact it was the opposite. Connolly actually looked disinterested.
Im sure he wasn't and im sure he tried his best but even in defeat I was expecting him to be a lot better than what was on show. The one player worth the admission fee that day was McCaigue, his marker.

Divilment I can understand to a degree, but constantly getting involved and courting controversy are not what id associate with a 'great'. He will probably be remembered as much for the controversy attached to him as he will for his positive footballing contributions. Lets be honest, youd be pulling your hair out if your best player was regularly not on the field due to suspensions. He wont do much damage sittin on the sidelines watching games.

A supremely gifted and talented player but nowhere near one of the greatest of all time.
The best are usually considered the best because they have the complete package which would include temperament, character, reliability etc and unfortunately Connolly has shown to be lacking in a few of these areas in recent years. The best can also usually be relied upon 9 times out of 10 to perform to a level and where they can be the difference between winning and losing.

A supremely gifted footballer but a heck of a way to go before being considered one of the greatest of all time.

Just another dose to add to the roster of former player doses who wont get off fence or say anything for fear of offending others.
