Anyone know what happened with Damien Donohoe and the Bailieboro players? Odd of him to mention it on twitter, not like him at all.

Great result from the U16s. If they can win it out with all the extra teams there now it will be a good result. Next year is their year at Minor so fingers crossed they'll be able to bring that form to Ulster same as last year's minor team yet.

Not sure about Damien but it may be related to some stupid stuff their PRO was at, had a go at the celt when they won citing some article giving them little chance of the win. It was then pointed out to him that the article was from Gaelic Life ::)
I believe Damien did their Lip Sync for them too so its pretty crappy carry on if they had verbals with him after the game, maybe he is due an apology.

Lots of interesting results at the weekend. Bailieboro beating Mullahoran, Gaels bet by Killygarry etc
Maybe senior will not be the simple Gaels win many predicted.
Also the U16s with a thrashing of Dublin in the Gerry Reilly Cup is nice to see. I suppose the Dubs players will go fully professional after their leaving certs and catch up!

So many servers are being openly advertised and are so easy for sky to track and disrupt. People will need to find smaller "word of mouth" set ups.

That was like watching a Leinster Championship game today, which is the worst possible indictment I can think of.

My feelings exactly. That coupled with the non-event against Tyrone last year and the AI championship is morphing into the Leinster championship as Dublinís shadow looms large over the game.

In fairness though it's notvthat the dubs are better this year than last. It's that the chasing pack this year are gone backwards with the demise of Mayo. Dublin weren't even near their best today.

Yes when the supplier is giving out m3u files left right and centre they are effectively telling sky where their server is and this is what happens.

Its moronic copy cat behavior which lowers themselves to the same level as loyalists on the 11th night. Oh they have bonfires burning tricolours on the 11th so we have to have one in August and burn the union jack. They've now started to add offensive signs on the bonfires in the past few years as the other side have done the same.
Who in the right mind wants to go to light or watch a bonfire anyway? Not my culture.

Well said. Equally stupid is the line of unionists and others lining up to condemn it while saying nothing when our flag is on top of a bonfire on the 11th night.

It appears that Paidi O'Se was correct about the Kerry supporters when he labelled them f***ing animals based on what Eamon Fitzmaurice has revealed about the hate mail and abuse that he received. No manager should have to endure that level of abuse and particularly due to the fact that he was not getting paid unlike the vast majority of other county managers who do not come under anywhere near the same level of scrutiny.

That said the kerry job is still a very enticing position for any manager given the conveyor belt of talent that they have coming through and the fact that Dublin will at some point in the next year or two will begin regressing.   

Sport evokes a lot of passion people go over the top, he knew what he was getting into.  If you are thin skinned itís not the job for you.

Passion is fine but what sort of an individual takes the time to sit down and write a letter having a pop at a manager. Passion in the spur of the moment is par for the course but writing hate mail is crossing the line. Then you have the recent advent of social media to have to deal with.

Any manager that is getting well paid is fair game as far as I am concerned but Fitzmaurice was not getting paid money for the job and always seemed to handle himself well.

I'd  like to see these letters.

I think we should adopt the gay pride flag and something by the scissor sisters for an anthem.

Why is soccer full of this type of thing. Only a sc**bag would say that to another human being.

The more I read about it the more convinced I am that this is one remarkable group of athletes. They have cross-over skills from many other sports, including Camogie, Gaelic football, cricket, soccer, Indycar motor racing, and even Irish dancing.

Hockey itself is a smashing sport. It should be a lot more popular with the general public on the world stage than it is. It's a very skilful game and has meaningful international competition, with a wider spread of competitive countries than rugby or cricket - arguably only association football has a wider spread. It's consistently one of the most interesting sports at the Olympics. In terms of the marketing of the sport, however, it's been a big underachiever.

Its also quite boring.

I contend that syphilis is just like the Sunday game pundits. Running around talking daft shite for attention. Same with Fearon in his pomp. Even though they talk utter crap you still have to take a look just so you can shake your head and think good god listen to that fool and what he's saying now. Humans must just be hardwired that way.

It seems to have been a bit of a disaster alright.

Depends how you look at it. New manager trying to embed a new system while at the same time bringing in a load of young players. Sligos captain is only 21 or 22 i think. The county board were probably right to set sustaining Div 3 as a target. Galway were always going to be way to strong for Sligo. They will probably be most annoyed about the tame defeat to Armagh. Is that enough of a reason to part ways after 1 year?

Reading the press release it looks like manager himself walked as the release more or less said all goals were met this year.
Does anyone seriously believe that their goals for the year was just staying up in a poor Division three and beating London in the championship?

I seen Sligo twice this year against Armagh. They have plenty of good players but as a group they are so poorly coached and managed that they were basically like headless chickens running around the field. Galway I agree were always going to be too strong for Sligo however they lost by 21 points and conceded 4-24 its when defeats like that become acceptable that problems becomes even worse for counties like Sligo.

You could l d say the same about Armagh under mcgeeney in his first couple of years!
