Fair play to Jerome as hes a legend in Kilcoo and loves the club. It paves the way for Doran and him to be front runners when the two lads step away at the end of the season. Its the only job they want.
  Kilcoo will not pay their own man.

I see the u20 championship starts this weekend with only 6 teams in the A competition and 12 in the B section. Some big clubs in the B section who have been competing well at the minor level in previous years so I don't see why they are down-competing with smaller clubs, that's not fair. IMO
  It's drop-off and University attendance overseas or down South that could be the reason.

Johhny why do a lot of lads not play development squad football?
Genuine question

Society has changed a lot. The clamour of playing for a development squad doesnít appeal to some young lads, some clubs donít encourage their players to go to trials/training, and the biggest reason is because some of the lads on the squad canít get on their club team but are playing/training with the best in the county because of who they are etc. that hasnít changed in the last 20 years and wonít change going forward until dads are not allowed to work with their own.
  I doubt this claim. Are you saying there are lads on Dev. Squads who don't get on their own Club team at the same age group?

Loughisland were set up defensively against The Point and vice versa, which resulted in it being a shite game.
The Point had nobody upfront capable of taking on his man and aside from your number 14 Loughinisland were the same.

The only way it changes and it will, is a rule change because Today's Players have become robots that lack the flair or audacity to take on a percentage risk that may change a game.

I donít think it will take a rule change - just a manager somewhere to set their team out to play. I hear the county minor trials are up and running.  20 chopped from trials already which is very unfair. If ur a lad playing in the U17 C championship and are knocked out in round 2 - that was July. How are you expected to have any level of fitness 2/3 months later to compete with lads who played in the A championship at semi final or final stage. Surely making contact with schools to see what players are worth a look at would serve the purpose better. College, Abbey, St Malachys Castlewellan, St Joes, Red High, Banbridge, Acquines, all have teachers/coaches who actually care about the GAA ethos in their school and could provide Benny/Darren with information they require.
  Your boy one of the 20 chopped?

No offence but Scor??....does anyone give a shit really.
Outdated concept.

Well, I do and an aim of our association is to support the Irish language, traditional Irish dancing, music, song, and other aspects of Irish culture. Some clubs need to read the aims of the GAA.
Does your OWN Club support all 5 strands of the GAA?

Why would they not stay in place? Two objectives for the season, promotion ✔️ and remain in Senior championship ✔️, both
P acheived.
  Agree with objective 1 but no Club could have objective 2 as their aim when setting out in a 16 team
Championship.

I see frank Dawson has left belleek after 1 season
Is he not with Bredagh?

Was with Bredagh and helping Beleek out as well.

Will the Bredagh management stay in place next year? The merry go round has started already.
  Both teams up from Div 2 were in the SFC relegation playoffs.Itíll be a struggle to stay in Div1 next year,Iíd say.

Well Johnnysboys, I would imagine that your opinion it will not be a successful year unless Down win the All Ireland and even  if they do you will find something to bitch about. Sad person.

No where in my post have I mentioned an All Ireland - Iím not deluded like others on here.. The county board and 90% of supporters have gotten their man to take us out of the mire.. division 3 title is not too much to ask and one win in Ulster (draw being favourable) - I feel Iím being realistic. Back room team are ďinterestingĒ to say the least. I wonder will there be anyone from south down added to the ticket in the coming days.
Clarke and Morgan are both from South Down.

Heard from a source from within the club that Burren payed a certain high profile player the same amount they were set to receive from a club in America in order to stay this summer. Does anyone know if thereís any truth to this?
  Bit of a let down there with your first post.Old news!
