Quote from: ONEDerry on July 09, 2024, 11:45:38 AMI find it hard to believe that with all that is known about Gallagher so many people would be ok with having him back. Hopefully there are enough players with principles will say they will have nothing to do with it. I'd say Ladies players who play for the County will vote with their feet and rightly so.

I find it hard to believe that so many people "know" so much about Gallagher.
Reading social media is not knowing.
The only facts I "know" is that his ex made the public allegation, gallagher wasnt charged and the GAA have lifted any ban.
What else do people know?
I've said before, if he was found guilty of something I'd be the first man calling to get rid of him and that's it's jail he should be in. But the court of social media doesnt wash with me.

Any decision made should be a footballing decision.
Or else Central GAA need to issue regulations around participation, in any manner, for anyone with any type of criminal history or accusations made against them. It would have to apply to players, management, boards, clubs, counties etc.

One of the things his ex wife said was that when they were younger he beat her on a night out in front of other people. One of those people had to take her to hospital as she was badly injured. That person is the wife of a former Fermanagh player I believe, that hadnt spoken to her in years who then went on to corroborate her story. You can be as near as certain as possible that that is true. And say you want to be believe thats the only thing thats true, and Derry GAA would be well within their rights to appoint him, is that someone you would be OK with being the figurehead of Derry GAA? Never mind the fact hes never once denied or refuted any of the allegations made.
I wonder do any of the people quick to dismiss the allegations in relation to RG, be of the same opinion if they had a friend or family member that was a victim of domestic violence?

Quote from: shawshank on July 04, 2024, 11:52:05 AMAm I mad? Looking from the outside on the Gallagher thing. Recently lifted for drink driving, assaulting cops. An alcoholic alleging there was domestic abuse. Nothing ever proved, never charged by the PSNI nor Guards. Gallagher has custody of his children because the ex is unable to keep them, she is assessed of not being responsible nor capable, he is assessed as being responsible to keep them by social services after a number of assessments, kids views would have been assessed to. What am I not getting here other then social media?
There will be fellas in your local that you wouldnt need forensic evidence or convictions to know not to go near or associate with. The fact he never once denied or refuted what his wife put up, only to say that the matter had been dealt with before by the authorities tells you all you need to know. I don't think our quest for glory should blind us of such things.

Is it not that already? I know its a £200 fine for recreational reserves not fielding, so I assume it be the same?

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on June 26, 2024, 11:07:34 PMNot sure where to put this but heading back home the other night, straight after a game, still dressed in ref gear, whistle still round neck.

But going well over the limit on the motorway.. blue lights flashing in background, I'm generally just over limit but on this occasion I'm just lost listening to music and going beat too fast

Anyways he opens the door of the car, I'm thinking easy 3 points or more as front tyre is barely legal

But as I'm dressed in full gear, he starts talking GA!!

No points, bitta banter, just tells me to slow down..

Uppa the PSNI ;)

Don't lie, you let him blow your whistle didn't you!

Quote from: imtommygunn on June 18, 2024, 07:47:44 AMYou don't go from a good to a bad team overnight l there might be some fight in them now it is actual knockout. Might I say...


Derry appear to be the team that went from good to bad overnight.
The form of McGuigan, Doherty, Cassidy has fallen off a cliff.  Rogers has been poor all year really and Glass has not been dominating games the way he has through Glens AI win and in alot of games since his return to Derry.

This may be a game that they needed to get them going, but in the Westmeath game last week they looked like a team that needed out out of their misery. 
Would agree with you bar Ethan Doherty, Think hes been one of the players that has been consistently performing.
Doherty was decent against Donegal but for me has been poor since. 

No he hasn't (not even close) , some around him have been poor. Go watch a Derry game and see how many times Doherty bombs forward with scant supporting cast to lay the ball off to. Ethan has been consistent for 3+ seasons now.
Or alternatively running down blind alleys. 

You can double down all you want, but you are wrong re Ethan Doherty being poor atm
Ok he played in a forward line that scored 9 times against a poor Westmeath side but he's been as consistent as he has been in last three years.Was a non event against Armagh too.
He scored 3 great points in the first half. Id agree with JoG2 on this. Too simplistic to say everyone is playing poor when a teams performance plummets. At the elite level it only takes a few players off it for the whole thing to fall to pieces. I think playing fellas not a full fitness after injury is a major factor. Honestly think we would be better off with a squad player getting minutes, even if management don't think they are up to it instead of putting in someone at 80%. There is maybe 2 or 3  exceptions to that, but none of those were the players affected.
Against who? He scored one point against Armagh and none against Westmeath. 

Baker, McFaul, McCloskey I thought were their best at the weekend but outside of that didn't have many 7/10s.   
My mistake right you are. I still think hes been one of our better performers.

Quote from: illdecide on June 18, 2024, 11:03:56 AMRight, I've been thinking about this for a long time and would like your honest opinions. I know there is quite a few soccer men on here too so the topic is "Warm-ups".
GAA warm-up are so long and intense, I've been part of them and you're bollixed after the warm-up. I get the theory that as soon as that size 5 is thrown in you're ready to do battle and you have your 2nd wind etc etc.
Soccer warm-ups are a lot less frantic and seem to be half and three quarter pace with stretching and basically limbering up.
I know there is so much data out there for both sides so why the two complete different warm-ups?. I know they're different sports and different types of running and more impact etc etc but do we GAA players do too excessive warm-ups?. I think we do

There was a twitter thread on this a while ago. There's no science behind the GAA warm up as far as anyone could find. Most likely a coach started it with a good team and because they were going well it was copied.
There was a few coaches on it that had reduced the warm up time drastically and they said the results were just the same. Some teams are knocking the shite out of each other in the warm up too.

I'm pretty sure there's an article on it but I can't remember what outlet it was on. Could've been in Gaelic Life
Pirlo summed it up best when he said "Warm ups are masturbation sessions for strength and conditioning coaches"

Quote from: imtommygunn on June 18, 2024, 09:03:50 AMTeams are onto them a bit more. Cassidy is looking for his right foot and McGuigan for his left. You could visibly see Cassidy being pushed out to his left a lot on saturday and being unable to shoot. That sounds simple but you could see the frustration in Cassidy. I don't think Glass really dominated games at county - he was very good and played a holding position etc very well but Rodgers complimented him very well. He's not doing that now as he's off form. Rodgers on his day is great but he becomes very petulant when things not going his way.

There surely has to be something in them though? McEvoy with another game under his belt and McKinless coming back surely has to help them. Surely?

Loughlin probably a bigger miss than people realise not to mention Doherty and McKinless. HB was their platform to bolster their attack and it is basically gone so the attack is a lot more isolated.

For sure. McGuigan has especially missed his presence. Does some amount of work and is always a scoring threat.

Quote from: Keyser soze on June 07, 2024, 11:07:52 AMThat wee woman that shouted at Conor Glass should get a 2 match ban as well IMO.

If Armagh supporters are allowed to get away with shite like shouting at our Conor they will be shouting at every opposition player before you know it.



Any footage?

What happened in Portugal stays in Portugal?
;D very good. Fair play, we have to take the grief, but the grass is long ;D

Make love not war - what genius said this?
;D  ;D. From Wiki

"Several people claimed to be the inventor of the phrase, including Gershon Legman,[4][5] Rod McKuen,[6] radical activists Penelope and Franklin Rosemont and Tor Faegre,[7][8] and Diane Newell Meyer, a senior at the University of Oregon in 1965,[8] but the earliest uses in print appear to have been in anti-war protests in Berkeley, California earlier in 1965 than the April and May uses cited by Penelope Rosemont and Diane Newell Meyer. Articles mentioning signs and bumper stickers with the phrase were reported in the Daily Californian in February[9] and the Oakland Tribune in March.[10] Barbara Smoker claimed to have financed the manufacture of the first "Make Love, Not War" badges.[11] This quote is also attributed to Herbert Marcuse, a German philosopher who emigrated to the United States in the thirties and was an outspoken war critic (cit. quote.org)."

Surely the Derry man pushed Mackin into Glass?
;D  ;D  ;D That's a cracker
