Well there are certainly no defeatist attitudes on this site anyway....

Best of luck to Mayo. A great team, great players who are role models and all round nice guys, we should give them an honorary all Ireland because they are so great.

very curious story - the Dublin v Tyrone game is broadcast live on Eir, so if they wanted a DVD of the high behind camera it would be Eir they would be asking (and it is a very standard request - most IC teams look for it when they are playing a live TV fixture).

I'd say this is garbled up a bit - maybe it relates to DVD provision during last year's championship, because it makes no sense as Eir and TG4 are the rights holders.

What I have heard its not matches involving Dublin that are being requested, EIR don't have camera's at every Div 1 and 2 match like RTE have and I also believe its the high up behind the goal angle camera that EIR don't use.

Greatest, RTE do not have cameras at every Div 1 and Div 2 game - see the Sunday Game thread to see that explained exhaustively.

I could see Eir not using the high behind position if they wanted to save money on cameras - they are not obligated to use it - but then Gavin's beef should be with them, not RTE?

I think this is either a story getting confused or blown up beyond proportion.

Possibly. Maybe there's more to it than just DVDs, but I do not its in particular to games not involving Dublin.

2 months is a joke, a 2 year ban or longer would suffice. Entering the field of play is a no no.

"Frustration" my eye.

I get frustrated when I can't open a jam jar. This is a lot more than that.

He's been dishing out sneaky elbows for years & getting away with it.

He was stupid enough to do something in plain sight of the ref & got a deserved red card. About bloody time too.

Am amazed he didn't spend the rest of the game whinging to the ref, which seems to be his second favorite pass time.

Thoroughly dislikable player. Has zero pace & does very little from open play. Is of no use at all to Mayo, if he doesn't get his shit together on the frees.

100% accurate this.

People seeing the truth now, although being going on for years.

Other than Davey Fitz I couldn't care less if I heard any managers interviewed ever again. Pundits the same.

Do what TG4 do Monday nights. Show the highlights, then feck off.

+1.

Games are not won by talking to the media.

I hope more managers follow suit with RTE who have gotten away with murder over the years.

Well done Jim Gavin.

Gentlemen, attack the post, not the poster.

Its a forum of opinion which I believe is an accurate description of Mayo and their players.

Hopefully Mayo get knocked out early of the championship so we don't have to suffer their fans or media love in.

Have a good evening.

Hefty bans to be handed out this and 60 page threads on certain players. Numerous articles in all media for the next weeks and a full breakdown analysis on the Sunday game.... Oh wait.. . .  that wont happen.

Mayo the media sweathearts again with the thuggery, when are people going to cop on to them.

Maybe when he attacks a linesman and an innocent by stander in a pub.Any mayo fan ive spoken too is in agreement cillians hit was cowardly and stupid and he deserves to be punished for it.Your in no position to play the victim did you miss Smalls elbow on the Donegal player on saturday???

You've gone off topic, Mayo are being discussed, hundreds of threads on Dublin on this site and others and are heavily discussed as always.

Mayo, always the victim and deflection tactics. The Mayo team have poor discipline and its a major issue that some of the Mayo players cant control their violent temper or have moments of madness, its costing them the big one, the perfect example is last years all Ireland final.

Victim my hole can you not read??? Cillian was 100% wrong.I disagree that its costing us the big one as we have shown time and again we struggle against 14 men.The inability to put scores on the board when on top have cost us IMO.Il ask you again did you see Smalls elbow on the Donegal player???

I must of missed it to be honest.

Its a matter of opinions I suppose, to me Mayo violent tendencies and thuggish behaviour, childish play acting and trying to get players sent off is costing them. I suppose you can include ousting managers and trying to influence team selection to that list too.

One of the dirtiest players in the game. Gets away with a lot, whinges when he doesn't get his way. Should banned for a long time. Could of caused serious injury. Don't rate him as a play, most of his scores are scraps in front of goal or frees.

I can imagine you writing a pure dirt bird and erasing it. That red was a long time coming to be honest.

Don't get what your trying to say to be honest.

I'm sure he's a nice bloke, but it was a long time coming, Perhaps its time to drop him from the team, he cant control his temper.

What about your comment about the Dubs dragging Mayo men to the ground last Sept. You said:

Kill or be killed. Anything other than that is loser talk.

By the way, reading through your post history shows a worrying obsession with Mayo players.

I am not talking about Dublin for a change if we can stick to the topic. I thought O Connors elbow tackle to the face of a bloke half his size a disgrace.

His brothers tackle was dangerous but a yellow.

Elbow to face/high dangerous tackles when losing to dragging players to the ground to slow play down to win an All Ireland. There is a big difference IMO.
