Bigger issue IMO for Ulster colleges is with the Impending closure of alot of smaller "vocational" schools due to lack of numbers and government policy to try and centralise resources ( which is madness -you only have to look at the mess that has been made of the English system with this policy) , what happens the vast majority of lads in these schools who probably all play for their clubs and never make a mcrory squad ?

Also the current state of Gaelic in FE colleges ( the old "techs") is very sad to see.
Seems nobody wants to take responsibility for it .
I remember a time when those Colleges won all Ireland's and would have given most mcrory teams a run for their money

I have never witnessed a referee change their mind after being challenged over a decision by a player.
All I have witnessed is a referee moving a free forward and then, as what happened yesterday, giving the
opposition team some soft frees.
I am not sure why players bother with it.

I would agree that Fermanagh commit abit more in the attacking side of the game.
They have a set of forwards who can do damage.
But then a reliable left footed free taker yesterday and we would probably have won so it might not be pretty
but it is effective.

Interesting enough game for what it was.
Will bear little resemblance to the game we will see on the 13th of May.
Fermanaghs vulnerability to a high ball came to the fore again and Armagh with Rafferty in there
will have noticed a very obvious weakness.
What Fermanagh can take out of it is that Armagh can't tackle and have poor discipline.
That is something we have to exploit.
The referee did give Fermnagh some soft frees but Armagh only have themselves to blame for that.
There approach to when a decision is given against them is very strange.
You would think that the referee was going to change his mind when they verbally contested the decision.
Strange ....

The Division 2 thread used to be a place of robust debate, mutual respect & manliness.
I'm actually looking forward to the Kildare lads coming back.
Assuming we're still here.
If not, I hope the Division 3 thread is a place of robust debate, mutual respect & manliness.

Drop down to the div 3 thread.
Was great craic all together

We really did steal that one today.
Longford will be kicking themselves.
2 points up entering injury time and knowing a draw was enough to take them up. They should have closed that out. 
In fairness we missed a couple of very kickable scores in the last 10 minutes and it looked like we had blew our chance.
Seamie Quigley stole a few yards for the winning free but it was still some hit. 
I think the last 2 Fermanagh frees were dubious enough ( especially the free for the equaliser) but we will take them
Eoin Donnelly was immense in the final quarter and led from the front. Was great of the Longford keeper to keep firing his kickouts on top of him. 

Fair play to the Fermanagh players.  They took a lot of abuse from a lot of media pundits when they got rid of Wee Pete last year.  At the time I didnít agree with the way it was handled but I understood why they did it.
The promotion today was the vindication of that decision and those same pundits have been very quiet this evening. 
Also delighted to see Seamie Quigley trimmed down and playing football.  Everybody in Fermanagh knows the ability he was and what he could offer if he bought in.  Rory has seemed to get through to him and he hasnít even scratched the surface of what he could do.  Great to see him back and showing his skills on the national level.

All set for Squeaky Bum Sunday?

Offaly, Derry, Sligo, Longford and Fermanagh all have something to play for.

Armagh will travel to Wexford with the gossuns. Both have sealed fates.

Westmeath will try and hammer Offaly to see if they can take Longford/Fermanagh at the death.

Sligo and Derry will go hammer and tongs.

But Pearse Park is where my interest will lie. Are ye travellin FermGael? Bring lots os warm clothing and wet weather gear, just in case.

I hope to get there to bite the fingernails to the quick.............best of luck everyone.

Travelling down.
Seems to be a serious Fermanagh crowd heading down as well.

What would we be needing with wet weather clothing ?
Sure the last time I was in Longford the stand was being sorted.
I assume that's sorted at this stage......

From a Fermanagh perspective, the McRory cup teams have been the lifeblood of our county teams I would say for the past 30 or 40 years.
Very few of the current Fermanagh panel would not have played for St Michael's.  It has also developed quite a few Trillick men as well.
Due to the set up that Peter McGinnity started and Dominic Corrigan currently has, Fermanagh have been producing players.  Without that standard of football, we would never be able to compete as a county where we have been.

Thanks everybody.
Thanks Crossbar for the offer but I got a more central one which is extremely handy.
They know who they are and it is appreciated
