No word of the Annaclone and Loughinisland game last night? If it was the RGU involved there would have been ten pages on it.

I think youíll find that when thereís a 5-minute video of unpleasant scenes doing the rounds, itíll generate 10 pages.

The clubs involved are inconsequential.

But you carry on being paranoid.

There is a video going around, so what are you getting at?

And the clubs being inconsequential to whom exactly?

Truth hurts

I believe it's very important that the clubs are named and actions are taken, a video of fist fighting, people rolling around the ground after being struck, young kids being in close proximity, people heard shouting "get him" and "hit him". It's disgraceful and needs to be highlighted.

Havenít seen it so canít comment. Donít even know which clubs are involved.
One in all in is too common now and a way to prevent it needs to be found.

Are you annoyed that there was a fight at an U19 match or that people aren't giving those clubs a hard time because your club did previously?

I haven't seen a video and wasn't at the match so can't comment on it.

Firstly annoyed that people think it acceptable to have a free for all on a GAA pitch. Nothing is ever done about them as clubs always cry and appeal on a technicality.

Secondly, clubs in the county get less grief than other clubs when things such as this happen.

I call it facts, your club appealed the expulsion of the  senior championship after your fight in Kilcoo car park.

There were 7 neutral officials at the match, the chair of CCC was at the match, and a full length video of the incident was published and picked up by every media outlet in Ireland.

Both clubs were evidently guilty of bringing the game into disrepute. This was beyond dispute.

The severity of the punishments though is undefined for such occurrences so both clubs naturally did what they could to mitigate their initial sanctions.

But if youíre expecting every melee to be investigated and administered in equal fashion, you need to understand that CCC are bound initially to the refereeís report, and where appropriate and fair, the use of video evidence. If neither is conclusive in their need to deliver sanctions, then you really canít expect CCC to go on a wild goose hunt.

Harps v RGU in Kilcoo, in terms of misdemeanours to investigate, was beyond clear cut.

Annaclone have more than their fair share of heavy punishment over the years, before the days of lawyers appealing suspensions, so I don't know where you're getting that out of.

You've watched a clip on a video and want 2 smaller clubs smashed over the head because RGU got punished for being involved in high profile incidents.

If the two clubs are inconsequential god help us with the we  future of Down football, the Wobble Gob would be picking the county team from Newry/Warrenpoint, there isnít one club that can stand up and claim they have never been involved in a dust up, donít condone it but annoys me when people try to take the moral high ground, especially those dickheads among us from Burren or Warrenpoint.

Ah for fucks sake.

Read it again, without an agenda.

Whichever teams involved are inconsequential in terms of sanctions. Not inconsequential in terms of their worth as clubs. CCC donít judge the severity of sanctions by the colour of jerseys. Thatís the point Iím making.

Would question the logic behind it given a relatively poor recent track record in management. From Dromara to the county job is quite a leap. Though hopefully he would have a good relationship with some of the players from his role with the under 21's previously. It's a difficult job for anyone to take on regardless, and if it is him hopefully he gets players buying in and has good people around him.
