GAA Discussion / Re: Should Tyrone speak to RTE
« on: Today at 08:36:52 AM »
Off the football field, there are a number of issues that Mickey Harte holds that I wouldn't agree with, but he's very well entitled to hold such positions bar the letter to RT… about Brian Carthy's position in the sports department- that was a case of him and other signatories sticking their nose in where it wasn't their business.

However what I do know is this - if I had a son or daughter that was recently murdered while on their honeymoon and a short while after burying them I hear a presenter doing a "satirical" sketch on a mid-morning show on the most popular national station in Ireland that also is the flagship radio station of the country's public broadcaster, make a complaint to them and then get palmed off with a mealy mouthed apology, I'd have absolutely no problem telling anyone who works for the broadcaster that wants to speak to me to f**k off. And when they get there, f**k off again, then f**k off some more and keep f**king off until they return back to where they started and then they can f**k off for another indefinite period.

And at the risk of those accusing me of playing the "oppressed nordie" card (which I'm not, as this could apply to most counties outside of NI or Ulster), I can safely say that if Mickey Harte at the time of the incident was the senior football manager for Dublin, then RT…'s management would have been going apeshit & kicking arses out of Donnybrook with P45's attached to them rather than just issuing a statement "apologising for any offence caused".

I concur

When someone has went through something that horrendous, you shouldn't be doing anything that could be considered even close to offensive, and if you inadvertently do, then you should go grovelling to them.

I can't imagine they'd have considered a skit about Lottie Ryan not long after Gerrys death, and certainly not with a song that could be interpreted as referring to him

Loved heading to matches in the 90's with my father.  Obviously wasn't too much success where my own county (Fermanagh) was involved, but can remember heading to plenty of Ulster Championship games in that 92-95 period.  Pretty sure I went to all the Derry games in 1993 bar the final and similarly with Down in 1994.  I doubt too many neutrals would take in as many games these days.

Most games in the 90's beside us in Clones too - in every Sunday. Everyone getting in whatever way they could - there used to be crowds clambering onto the TV lorries which were pulled down the lane which would be the back of the gerry arthurs now and hopping over the fence from there.

Doug is a p***k

A tackle around the neck should be a black imo. It's just as cynical, it's more dangerous and players are doing it now intentionally to avoid a black.

I don't think I've ever heard such shite in my life

Self service booth doesn't give change does it? Is it not more likely people throwing and missing the bucket?

Have you a video of it there?

The ref gave as many poor decisions against Tyrone as he did Monaghan
The Monaghan big decision came at the end and it was never a free as Hughes was all over him. So he made the right call on that one. As for extra time, there was very little injuries in the game. He played the right amount as the subs made as shown on the Sunday Game last night. As well as that he played an extra 40 seconds over the 3 minutes.
Overall the ref was poor for both teams and itís sour grapes from Monaghan.

The 'monaghan big decision' came before that when he gave a nothing free against mcmanus (who he seems to dislike) when it would have resulted in an 3 to 1 situation for a goal. Instead Tyrone went up the field and got a point.

Which does more harm for Gaelic football.......

Dublin winning their 4th of 8 in a row or Tyrone winning one this year........


But Tyrone gives hope to a lot of moderate footballers out there... jesus Colm Cavanagh  ....

Most of the 50/50s seemed to go Tyrones way (and one or two that weren't even 50/50 - how did mcmanus not get a free for being slapped in the face, which the ref had to see because he stopped play for treatment!).
Was that in the 1st half? He did get a free which was taken by someone else. It was strangely kicked backwards then given to the free taker who was now in a more difficult position and he kicked it over. Wasnít much of a free either.

He kicked it back because a free wasn't awarded for the slap. Monaghan were in possession so retained it, but he couldn't shoot directly. it was an incredible decision, and in keeping how he was all day.

That generally isn't an issue. The ball was moving which I'd say was a bigger one

 ;D You joker. If he's average I'd like to see who you think is good!

Perhaps in isolation certain incidents could be argued but when put together it did seem as though monaghan were hard done by. In a 1 pt game every one of these incidents are important.

Fair play to Tyrone though, hopefully we can look forward to a great final - Dubs are there for the taking

From the Super 8 to now the Fantastic 4 its been labelled by some. With extra revenue so important maybe in time a group stage will be introduced for the last 4?

On a scale of one to ten i'd wonder how confident Dublin supporters are to winning four in row All Ireland titles. In their way is Galway who have reached their first All Ireland semi final since 2001, Monaghan who have reached their first semi final since 1988 and Tyrone who they beat by 12 point in their last championship meeting in Croke park.


Why ignore the fact they have played Tyrone in this years championship and it was closer?

They haven't
