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.

Clubs can't pull players from a county panel.

If you're going to throw petrol on a fire, make sure the can doesn't have a hole.
So if a county player discusses situation with his club and subsequently steps away from the panel?? Don't think they are contracted so free to walk

Quote from: Nanderson on October 16, 2023, 04:23:45 PMHearing more rumours about why Paul stood down and I would hope to God they weren't true

CB couldn't guarantee his safety?

If true then their a bigger bunch of scum bags than we ever thought

I find that quite staggering if true.
Let's just say he would have needed to make sure his home insurance was up to date

Quote from: downtothecore on October 15, 2023, 10:59:09 AMWhat CB appoint P Faloon when they knew it would be controversial? 

Why would the appointment of a Top 24 tef fora county final be controversial when he has no affiliation to either team?? Or can you explain what Kilcoo issue is with him??

If word that David Gough has been drafted in is true, then its a disgrace and the rest of referees in Down ahould hand in their whistles. This comes down to a weak County Board who have fed into this shit for years. Allowing Kilcoo to dictate who referees their games. No previous sanctions on referees who clearly ignored disgraceful on field antics by Kilcoo but dished out soft frees for them. Lacey trying to give instructions to the refs a few weeks ago and now they handpicking them. Hopefully Gough has the balls to stop their bullshit today.

Quote from: downtothecore on October 02, 2023, 08:00:55 PMLotto...If there was any verbal it was not the cause of that disgraceful show as there was no slaps but punches thrown by the yella shirts. The video clearly shows it all.  It was a clean game to the point of yellow card tackle by n brannigan who was then punched by r Carr and then has head stood on by s mc conville and then darren lost the head. After this it was a disgraceful show from e brown and others at the kilcoo sub box was attracted by yella shirts . The kilcoo lads had to keep the head and take physical punishment and thankfully the officials seen it also. No one can be sure of what verbals were exchanged but when your getting punched .......

Yellow card tackle from N Brannigan..are you teeing up the appeal!! ..absolute BS he struck out unnecessarily and deservedly was red carded. Clonduff lost the plot at that stage and ref dealt with it. Conor Curran done what was needed. If you strike then you should be prepared to take the slap and consequences that follow. If a player is mouthing at all let alone anything personal then they deserve whatever comes. Hopefully a strong referee and linesmen with strong integrity are in place for the final who'll stand up to any of this crap that has long been ignored and excused.

Firstly I have no gripe with Kilcoo winning today. They showed all their experience and pushed on when needed. Their success has been built on hard work so fair play.  But Like I said Cuan, there were a number of instances of both teams getting away with tackles that could have the yielded a different outcome. But he was equally lenient in them big calls. Frees where given to both sides. Kilcoo had a few frees near end to win it, equally point got chances. He called what he seen. Point showed real heart and kept themselves in it. But to say Darren was the reason the game was close is plain BS

Cuan12 you are full of it. Darren had a good game. Very fair and let it flow. Punished over carrying equally and gave frees that were due. Dylan Ward left a fist in and was yellow carded, similar tackle for McGivern near end. Gave Sheelin a free which could have went other way for trapping the hand. Ryan McEvoy followed through McGarry and could have been dealt with differently but Darren let it go. Take your anti Burren bias and stick it. Burren living rent free in your head

Completely agree.  As a neutral at the majority of Kilcoos games this season (including the controversial league final) it has been clear the opposition has been the team provoking, hits off the ball etc. it must be discussed in the changing rooms to use dirty antics.
Sweet Jesus, someone actually suggesting Kilcoo as the victims. Hardly a neutral. The verbal and gouging long forgotten

Well wasn't that just lovely to experience. Given absolutely no chance by anyone outside the group of players and we turned over the noisy ones again. Second time in a few seasons we have beaten them in championship. Burren supporters around me calling for management to go. Serious amount of money spent there and a paltry league to show for it.
We move on to the semi finals now. Loughinisland have beaten us already and will be delighted with the draw - massive underdogs again but as we all seen tonight the tag suits us.
Bridge v CPN final I'm predicting.

After tonight's performance  CPN will be stone wall favourites. Deserved to win, as for resources I'd wouldn't think Mulholland and Poland are doing it for pennies. But at least you don't have to take about Burren anymore but can talk about the resources spent in Kilcoo!!

What Tiernan Kelly done was disgraceful and he will rightly face a lengthy ban. It was wrong, stupid and indefensible so he'll have to take what comes, learn from it and ensure it never happens again. Funny that there wasnt the same outrage in Down when it was common enough practice a few years ago! Cowardly act then and a cowardly act now.

Get Laverty in and let him have a go. Hopefully he'll look to build on the 20s and squeeze the most out of whoever is left of the rest. It'll be a few years rebuilding but on the bright side Eugene will get "the different manager" he talked about and would play under  and maybe the Kilcoo lads will step up to help set the tone. Clean out needed either way and the Prima Donnas replaced with young, hungry footballers who want to drive down football forward.

I wouldn't say they wanted the Jim McGuinness recruitment to fail, it was more that they wanted to look like the big fella who was involved in it and making out they were in the know. Anyone who has followed or read anything around McGuinness and how he operates would know he demands a closed shop. the fact that some of the CB boys were spouting in public just highlighted that he couldn't trust them at any stage and therefore pulled the plug.
For what its worth i think he'd have been a brilliant appointment and would have been ideal to work with Laverty and Clarke with a view to keeping the 20's and Senior set up in line

Rice will crumble when it comes to the pressure of this year's final. He knows full well all the Burren people hate his guts after the McGovern sending off and he'll try to undo that mistake this year and gift Burren a SFC...Burren will win this final by 5/6 and they'll be one of the favourites to win Ulster

Rice wouldn't give Burren the steam of his piss! He'll turn a blind eye when needed and ensure he's the centre attraction. The assessors should be entertained if no one else

Brannigan threw 3 punches there all caught on camera - that's a lengthy suspension needed.

Instigated it and everyone could see that, no punches thrown until he started it
Kilcoo last week, Burren this week; why can teams not accept defeat gracefully anymore?
Rephrase that, Kilcoo last week, Kilcoo and Burren this week. Brannagan threw a number of punches so Kilcoo aren't victims in this. Big difference in players having a thump at one another and the ref needing escorted off, being threatened on and off the field and verbal abuse of a personal and the worst nature being thrown at him. If you talk you got to be prepared to listen
