From the mouth of the troll,
"Rangers drew 1-1 at Celtic Park last month, have momentum and a tactically astute manager who has made an immediate impact." 

Diamonds are forever.

These posts are almost satirical. Between this forum and one other I've 'heard' four different accounts of what McGeeney is 'rumoured' to have said to the linesman and/or the referee. That's a lot of misinformation. Yet the people questioning the details of this issue are the 'muppets' who should 'take a hard look at themselves'.

Your point is articulate and well made, but unfortunately you're wasting your time. What you're dealing with here are bitter, small minded individuals who cannot debate these things in a reasonable manner without that bitterness coming through. Reasoned debate - as your post alluded to - is all but impossible.

You should appeal for calm on the armagh gaa forum. Some disgraceful comments and very few reasoned ones. Completely lost the run of ourselves if that is representative

I think most of it is in jest. As you say no one knows the truth. In the heat of the moment I would doubt even the 2 involved hand on heart could be sure what was said.
We do know the truth as it stands now. McGeeney said the truth is in the referee's report and if the ref stands by it  then it remains the truth.
We give the referees the authority and we trust them to make an honest report.
Joe McQuillan is the top ref in Ulster and one of the best in the country, therefore I would expect that a high degree of integrity is one of his qualities.

McGeeney said the truth is in the referee's report:  Please give us your source for this.

Sorry, you said it. not McGeeney
"When a referee makes a statement in his report it cannot be overturned as it is taken to be the absolute truth under GAA rule book."

Along with your own questionable evidence, there is a  random anecdote being presented from some u14 game somewhere, as definitive proof that Joe McQuillan is a liar or that he did not accurately hear what McGeeney was mouthing into his ear?

Quote
Joe McQuillan is the top ref McQuillan wasn't the referee, it was an inexperienced colleague who had lost control of the game.

Who said Joe was the ref?
"Disciplinary officials have confirmed McGeeney is to be banned from the sideline for the June 4 Ulster quarter-final against Down in Páirc Esler and beyond after an exchange with linesman Joe McQuillan."
I trust it was bould Joe who reported an account of the exchange to the ref.
Honest Joe is a top ref who embodies integrity in the game.

Ally on tv says that Rangers were an improvement from the cup performance v Celtic,
he explained to a stunned nation that Rangers played better because they forced Celtic to play better. ;D

Fact alert,  this is is a Ronny team plus Sinclair.

 Rangers at half time,  2 nil down, make a  defensive substitution (in theory).

By lately, you mean in the last 10 minutes? one normal decision to not penalise Simunovic  and another normal decision to card Windass?

Ref is a bit of alright today, for an Ibrox season ticket holder and free mason to boot ;D

Any recordings of tommys Arlene joke?
I caught it somewhere on You Tube. Tommy's done better and he's done worse.
Usually these sketches work better in the context of a show.
All the same, crocodile tears for Arlene's sensitivities, being parodied as a farmer herding cows/fenian pups.

I'm surprised the straight red was downgraded to a yellow as there was enough venom in the tackle to allow the ref to make that decision.

however, it would hardly merit a yellow when judged by the standards of refereeing on some of the xxx tackles inflicted against Celtic players recently.

Ace midfielder Brown was spot on when he said way back at the beginning of the season that Aberdeen would be the likely 2nd best team in the league.

I had a wry smile when I read Tom English's article posted on the BBC web site,
pretty much said that if the gap (grand canyon more likely) was to diminish somewhat, that Rangers would have to do a loaves and fishes job, Celtic would have to burn Rodgers at the stake and make further mistake after mistake, losing their way to the CL group stage and after that continue to  "lose their way in a major fashion".

Really enjoyable El Classico alright. Messi is a genius

It was a weekend of really good football all round, capped by el clasico - that Chelsea-Spurs tie was a cracker.
Superb stuff. I thought Barca had missed the boat but the great man came up trumps at the end. There was much more effort off the ball from Messi last night, tracking back that we used to see in the Guradiola era but which we don't always see any more.

Ramos really is the panto villain. Did I hear 22 sendings off now? And complaining about it.

One black mark on the game was Gerry Armstrong's commentary. Surely it's time to put Gerry somewhere peaceful.

I had some laugh at Ray Hudson on beIN Sports

Hudson just squealed at the last 2 goals. Like a pig being slaughtered. Good laugh though.
Yet another Tyrone fckwit with his simile obscenity.
Good laugh though.

I think there's a good chance that it was intentional considering the systematic heavy contact fouling of Messi throughout the game.
 From the live angle, Messi had pulled to towards the side, away from the direct line of  contact, it could be interpreted that Marcello lifts his elbow higher than what was entailed for protection and made bloody contact. Just it's difficult to tell just how much intent was there.

Messi certainly got the bit between his teeth after that and was chomping on it.
Ironic then, given the state of the game, that Marcello decided not to take Roberto out en route to setting up the winner.
If only Marcelo had a few drops of Tyrone dna in his system he wouldn't have hesitated to chop Roberto down in that blink of an eye moment ;D you can see he tried to rectify that but couldn't get close to the player with the ball
