I remember Kerry going to omagh one year and they were stuffing tyrone by about 10 points.  McMenamin comes on at ht n grabs galvin by the billiards.  Mini riot then tyrone start reeling them in and they get a draw.  That's what was needed today

You think that would've made a difference. Dubs were in 2nd gear in that 2nd half. You'd want 15 rivets grabbing 30 balls at the same time and a blind ref to make a change to the outcome

From the first minute tyrone should have been at them.  Colm C' s kick was much too late.  One or two others showed fight when the game was over.

They don't have the players. You can't win these days without decent forwards. Donegal played a very tight system in 2012 but they had the class. This defeat is the worst kind for Tyrone because there is no upside. But next year will come around again and the sap will rise.
I think it shows how special the 00s team was.

Tyrone only stopped playing the way 'they used to' because it was pointless playing that way v Donegal.  3 or 4 championship defeats on the trot saw to this.  Heck  Kerry even changed their approach when they beat them in  the final a few years back

You lost because the players weren't good enough . This system is a failure too. Because you've beaten nobody since 2009

Tyrone might be looking at a decade or longer of mediocrity. The thing about being hammered at the business end is that it is often career ending. System meltdown is not good.

Donegal and Armagh fans must be asking even more serious questions about the quality of their teams.

Only 3 or 4 years til Canavan Jr arrives.

1 bad game. 1! What is it with gaa and overreaction to losing a championship match. 2017 has been decent. Back to back Ulsters at a canter, staying up in div1 and a semi final would have been a good enough year most years.

Imagine. Another manager of any other county who hadnt reached an AI Final after 3 or 4 years of him in charge and then they ship a humiliating defeat in an AI Semi Final...he'd be out the door. Tyrone havent reached an AI Final since 2008 and still Mickey hangs on...wtf

Too late ffs it was a scummy cowardly act and he should have walked.

As an Armagh fan I really hope Tyrone proceed with the attitude that it was just one bad day at the office and leave everything the same.

The cult of Mickey is too strong. He's like Wenger - he hasn't the humility to slip out the door and the powers that be don't have the balls to deal with him. The board need to dispense with nostalgia, thank him for the memories and tell him his time is up.
