Quote from: forevergreen on October 17, 2023, 11:37:37 AMWord now circulating that a number of clubs in the county are considering pulling their County players from the panel. County Manager clearly involved to some extent whether directly or as part of Kilcoo player group.
This is sending a rot throughout the county.
Yes this is true, heard drumgath are going to pull all there players from the county, it will be devastating

One of his many clubs, bit like the brother who refs out of forkhill. I hear he had a great game last Saturday night.

Paul Faloon was never a Clonduff member. He played for Saval and referees for Drumgath
Played hurling for clonduff

Quote from: Moonshine on October 16, 2023, 07:36:57 AMDid the whole ref scenario not manifest from a few years ago from a few players phoning him in middle of night and giving him abuse classy boys. Wouldn't get away with it in Derry or Tyrone. Down Co board seem spinless. I seen a stat about them winning 10 or 11 out of 12 championships. How many times in that period were they beat in championship I can remember a couple. Back door nonsense.
Started few years before that when faloon said he would do everything in his power to stop Kilcoo winning the championship

The Kilcoo player in question mustn't be to fussy on what he eats

Well done you just joined the anti Kilcoo support group feel free to bash them at every opportunity

Quote from: Saffrongael on October 08, 2023, 07:28:21 PMThat looked a bad enough row between Ballycran & Laotrim in the hurling, supporters over the fence and into the middle of it

I see Liatroim posted on social media that the game was ruined by the ref. Any neutrals see the game and know what that is about?

Wasn't at it but not surprised as I'd predicted something to happen during the week.  ;)

Liatroim were leading pretty well right into injury time when Ballycran scored two very late goals to win it by two points, it would have been a massive shock for Liatroim to win this one but from all accounts a few decisions didn't go their way at the end or as is the case not given to be more precise.

We'll be very interested in how this pans out considering our U15's along with Carryduff got put out of the U15 championship after our match was abandoned for absolutely next to nothing, two young lads rolling around on the ground, with a few other's pushing and shoving. Thing was over in less than 30 seconds.

Easy making an example of a bunch of kids, but lacking fortitude when it comes to the bigger teams!

First they stole the players then they went after the eggs.

For the integrity of the competition a Ballycran win was essential. Over a quarter of the Liatroim team shouldnt even be playing for them. (How this was allowed to happen the County Board has a lot to answer) The managers sons are quality players and should be with their own club in Belfast, McCusker should be with his own club, instead of glory hunting, is more suited to intermediate level anyway.

Imagine being a Liatroim player born and bred and then these outsiders coming in and taking your place, and then to stand back and be treated like an idiot. Pathetic stuff.

Having watched a lot of Ports this year was disappointed with their performance yesterday but still fancy them to get over the line in the final.

My overarching feeling as a Fontenoy over the weekend is immense pride, we were moments away from having 3 codes in adult finals over the coming weekends. The lads hurled brilliantly yesterday and deserved to come away with the result, however that wasn't to be, there is no doubt that questionable decisions put paid to that, however those are to be expected when you head over the water. The positive thing from a east/south down perspective is that the seeds are been sown at underage to develop hurling which can only benefit the county as a whole, whatever the hurling clubs in the ards think. On the previous post, I would have my own personal thoughts on the personnel, however from a club perspective I would argue that any success (relatively speaking, that would be contesting a senior final for us) at adult level can only breed interest at the underage levels, the reality is that the majority of that squad are Liatroim born and bred and the kids along the line yesterday see them at the field every week and as such will wish to emulate that success if/when it can be achieved.

We head in to this week with an intermediate football final and a senior camogie final to look forward to, and a pitch that is hiving every night of the week, so transfers aside I'm content we are heading in the right direction.

I can't speak for our newest member to the forum but I've been on record that the spread of underage hurling championships outside the Ards is good for hurling and a wake up call for the Ards clubs to raise their game and will benefit Down on the whole.
Bredagh are U17 champions, Castlewellan were defaulted the U15 championship with only ourselves from the Ards competing at the A level and Liatroim won the U13 cup competition relatively easily.

I did highlight the flexibility within that area where there's Liatroim lads sanctioned to play for Castlewellan at U15 yet Castlewellan had their own players standing along the line, ditto Liatroim U13's with lads from Castlewellan, Ballela on the field and Liatroim lads standing along the line. I wonder if the short sightedness of winning underage competitions stifles development within the club over the longer term.

It is heartening to go to the primary school blitzes and see teams from all over Down there, Mourne, Warrenpoint, Newry, East Belfast as well as the traditional clubs you'd see at all these types of events.
Long may it continue.

Think your both missing the main point here - of course seeing other teams excel at underage in Down is brilliant, but that's not the issue. There are no issues with amalgamated underage teams, when Senior you just go play for "your" club.

Liatroim have behaved like a premier league team dipping into the markets to get the best players. What's stopping the 3 ards teams next year going fishing around Belfast for a few players to improve their team. ( Wouldn't and shouldn't happen)

How would Liatroim react if Pearse Og or someone similar decided to leave them and go join Kilcoo for a chance at a Senior Championship. Sounds ridiculous I know but that's what has happened here.

The outsiders should go back to their own clubs, Liatroim have a great team without these transfers.
Pearse og wouldn't get on the Kilcoo team

Quote from: ck on October 03, 2023, 11:10:48 PMKilcoos sledging is widely known and only outdone by their ability to dive and win frees. So much arm grabbing followed by diving to the ground as they roll around in severe pain, holding their heads. Kings of the dark arts.
Watch for these in the final.
Which just so happens to be their 12th final in a row. Some going

Quote from: PTC on October 03, 2023, 01:21:17 PMLegends each and everyone of them

Anyone wants to know what Kilcoo are like, just watch their supporters on this forum 👆, all cut from the same cloth. Every team has an ethos to win at all costs, but to he a gypsy to others which could affect mental and physical health is a low blow and a level I would prefer my team never go to. Win at all costs is within the rules of the game. With Kilcoos Facebook post, I would assume they know them, as willing to mention it to bulk out their ass covering post.
Everybody hates us and we wouldn't have it any other way, up the magpies

Partner + family sledging vs Glen (watch Glass's interview)
Child abuse sledging vs a particular Down referee
Child abuse sledging vs Clonduff
Deceased family member sledging vs Mayobridge

But poor Kilcoo. Always the victims, it's never their fault

That's not to bad thought it would be worse
