Disagree with him entirely but he is entitled to his own opinions. Heís also entitled to express them - particularly in a personal format. If he starts inciting action against people whose lifestyle he disagrees with then thatís a different matter.
Think this hits the nail on the head.

Not having Orange tinted glasses on but Fermanagh seemed to get the free kicks a lot easier than Armagh, I will call a spade a spade i thought some of Armagh's tackling was wreckless/careless. Armagh are def light up front for natural scorers but it's great to see a few younger faces coming in and playing in HQ will certainly help them and give them a thirst for more...

How many of Fermanagh's scores were from play?

I know what youíre saying but at the same time most of the frees Fermanagh got were frees. We need to tighten up for May. In fact had Quigjey brought his shooting boots out for the second half the result may have been different
Would say a few frees were dives
Armagh seemed to work harder for their frees
My fear is the amount of wides we seem to stack up every game

Enjoyed the game , Armagh at times moved the ball well.
Thought Grimley and Murnin were in tip top form, if Murninís distribution improves he will be some footballer. Lovely to see dyas back .
All in all nice evening but Brewster park will be tighter and nastier when it arrives.

The macrory is a fantastic competition. The only thing that pains me about it is that no antrim schools are in it!

Great grounding for football in later years.
Was st Maryís CBGS not in it?
Winners in 1986 I believe

Ah lads, come on.

Colleges football was the most enjoyable and competitive football I ever played.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

Thats the difference, great for the 40 lads involved, dross to watch. I think far too much emphasis placed on it anyway and instead of developing players with the skills of the game they are more interested developing winning teams, so the can add a McRory to their coaching Cv for the managerial gravy train around Ulster.

There's a fair amount of bollocks talked on this forum but that takes the biscuit. Pure and utter nonsense.

Don't think it is to be fair. Some very average coaches, who have a very average knowledge of the game involved in teams.
But whatever, congratulations to St Ronan's.

Its an inconvinient truth for too many who think it is the be all and end all. Dont worry the same is happening in Rugby, massive percentage never even go on to play for their clubs.

Preparing lads for the biggest game of their lives at 17/18.
Fking balls
Schools football was brilliant, made friends for life and still have a great affiliation with my alma mater,
Still have the craic with guys from other schools I met during my time, from st marys cbs,maghera, college etc
Indeed few years ago took son to abbey St. Paulís Match and was chatting to guys from home who all had gone to St. Paulís and were a lot younger than me
One of them says hopefully get stuck into these abbey b**tards, I chuckled and said yip was thinking the same only I want the abbey to get stuck into the St. Paulís b**tards.
He hadnít realised I was an abbey boy.
For me schools football most enjoyable experience I had on the pitch.
Although that was easy cos cross killeavy etc used to hammer us regularly at under age so it was no fun

Armagh somehow managed to let Fermanagh hang on for a draw.
Armagh just kept possession
Funnily enough I think we saw the northerners being  extremely neighbourly

Fancy Fermanagh to beat Armagh, our need is greater!

Could see a scenario where Fermanagh, Armagh and Westmeath all tied on 12 points and comes down to scoring difference.
Armagh have so many injuries I can`t see any other result

I left the Abbey in 87 and of course there were teachers who would have given you a dig with either the strap or fist, just thought it was par for the course, Tommy Bo must have been giving out the fegs and whiskey, Dick Dargan (dodgy)!!

Got it in two Targetman!!!  You must have been in my brothers year above him....presuming you made it to 7th year
.

never had an issue with getting a dig as it was par for the course as was getting digs at home with the brush from my ma.
dick of course was dodgy but everyone knew that and stayed well clear,
tommy bo was a decent brother nothing untoward, he lent me money to buy a pair of football boots in 87 cos my mother couldn't afford them. we had a mc rory quarterfinal  and I was keeper with a ripped boot .

Iíd agree about Tommy Bo and he was the brother who let us have the whiskey. He was always great to us. Nannery beat us regular with the strap and as you say Dick was dodgy as hell. But then you had some viscious lay teachers who were happy enough to let you know the story.

Know now who you are!!!  Year before I started but as targetman said the boots worked wonders!!!  I wasnít at those games as my brother had fallen out with Val. He probably would have played but pride got in the way!!!  Wasnít the last time he fell out with our family either!!!
yip think its fair to say your fella would have played.but  he did alright in the long run.

illdecide, it's reported to be a knee injury.
it was a knee injury but the worry is that its a cartilage or other season ending injury, hopefully just a bang on the knee
