Seen two old club players back in the day, one a very accomplished soccer player, both headed the ball into the net, one was given and the other the ref disallowed it. I remember the one given caused a stink to the home team but we lapped it up on the sidelines

Quote from: AustinPowers on Today at 12:41:12 AMRegarding the Foot block

Just watched Armagh Kerry highlights  again. 

Ball on the ground, Kelly prods the ball  towards goal, Kerry defender  blocks the ball  with his foot.

Is that a  penalty? No

Or is it only a penalty  when the ball is  kicked  from the attackers hands? Yes

So if the ball was  rolling in front of goal and  the attacker  takes a run and  an almighty swing at it, the defender is legally entitled to  throw their leg/foot at the ball to block it?

Kelly's effort was tame as the ball was caught under his feet , but surely that  description above  would be deemed dangerous?

Sounds like they are both trying to do the same thing, then that would cancel out a foul?
Members pay every year, I've no problem with that..

Club officials put in hidden work lots don't see, very deserving

Coaches, as in non paying juvenile coaches deserve it too.

Also unfortunately your big club sponsors/contributors, while they may never actually go to a club game they commit a serious amount of money that keeps things ticking over.

Current players are no different to ex players so they are in the same boat.

Tickets years ago seemed easier to get for finals.. nowadays nearly impossible
As I said, it's very easy, no non members.

The draw is the best method if there is not enough tickets for everyone.

If someone is a season ticket holder and not a member they should be entitled also. At least they attend throughout the league and Championship

Quote from: statto on July 16, 2024, 07:05:05 PMWhen Armagh made final in 2002/2003 I can't recall anyone from the club who I though yes they should have got a ticket but didn't. Be interesting to see how many of the people not affiliated with a club in Armagh who avail of the club championship season ticket or regularly attend these games.There are genuine people like David mckeown who would like see get a ticket but for every David there's 5/6 people who could probably not tell you who the majority of Armagh players play for and following Armagh is more a social occasion rather than anything else. 

Sorry to be clear I'm not looking sympathy. I certainly don't deserve that and I've been to plenty of all Ireland finals in my time and should hopefully make this one.

The point I'm trying to make, badly, is that I'm not unique. There are plenty who will struggle in the coming fortnight. People who have good reason for no longer being club members or active members, ones who go to games but for whom the season ticket didn't suit etc etc. So I don't buy into the idea that those who deserve a ticket will get a ticket. Plenty will miss out and it's unfortunate but I don't think it's possible to really rank those people on entitlement and I can't think of a better way of handling these kind of things.

True. Is  someone who cuts the grass  more entitled to a ticket than someone who  washes the jersies? 

But  the thing about clubs distributing tickets is  there is always a bit of a wink and a  nod situation.  Nobody knows how many was  allocated, or where they all  went. That's the thing I  don't  like about it all

But they are more important than the no paying members of the association and those bandwagon jumpers who's mates are going for the craic or the one can afford any tickets

Quote from: Milltown Row2 on July 16, 2024, 07:36:50 PMSo if the league is so competitive and the championship is the best in Ireland why are they so shite in Ulster club?

I love this one. Usually done elsewhere but yeah sure let's do it here this year 😆😆

Works every year!

Tickets are available for all counties. People play their part in this association on many levels which makes it the life blood of or games.

Making tickets available for them and not the bandwagons is only fair, they'll appreciate it ten times some larger lout or some bloke with plenty money but wouldn't be a a local club game.

Was there 30 thousand at the Armagh first round of Ulster games?

Quote from: Sportacus on July 16, 2024, 12:22:52 PMI'd say Newcastle would be happy enough to let Eddie Howe go, and he'd tick the boxes for the FA.

Would cost the FA 7 million and they would have to match his wages, not sure you'd leave for less?

There are play offs, that's there to help county players play with their clubs, if players are taking themselves off for holidays that's ok and clubs will have known that too.

Other than staying up, the league has been used to blood players and prepare teams for championships

I'm not sure the mindset is there between the clubs to make it 'important' why Tyronies get worked up for the league I don't know, as it has no bearing other than staying up

Struggling to see a difference to the league this year to previous years, no one for as long as I can remember actually remembered who won the league from one year to the next, there is and always has been one show in town.

I'm not sure how the league set up is now being looked at with regards to improving county players when county players very rarely play in the league for any county up and down the country! Strange gymnastics being used to get a odd point across
What's it matter how much they are getting paid? I'm sure they are getting a wage like everyone else?

Can't see how there's an 'advantage' on their part to inform their insurance company? If there was damage on their car not yours were they looking it fixed under their own insurance?

Sounds iffy as feck.

Insurance companies could increase their business by hiring people to write notes on people's cars to boost their already inflated profits!
