I couldn't help but notice the difference between the two refs on Sunday. Hudson penalised Armagh in particular for crowding out defenders whilst McNally I think it was allowed both Dublin and Mayo away with it.

I haven't seen anyone mention it but Glass and Rodgers have not had a break in over a year playing roughly similar games for Glen, Slaughtneil and Derry and to cap it all Rodgers is a dual player. Could explain the fatigue, coming down from a great win against the Dubs can be hard to get the levels back. But great to see Armagh play some quality football, they need to push on though.

There are always players coming and going on panels, some players want games and know they are not near it with the county. Even players getting minutes every match can get fed up with so much sacrifice and no game time.

Quote from: Keyser soze on May 13, 2024, 09:56:42 AMThat was a great watch, fair play to both teams for a brilliant effort, that could have gone either way. Horrible for Armagh players [and supporters] but that's sport I spose.  Unbelievable that there are posters saying that was a poor quality game!

Can't fathom why 2 Armagh players refused a mark to win the game with time nearly up.

Penalties no way to decide a game, better to keep playing periods of extra time until there's a winner IMO.

Armagh are there or thereabouts, I would say McGeeney has them at near their max on most days out. He mightn't be the best manager about but for sure there a plenty worse. For those of you who want him out and there are plenty on here, who is coming in to replace him that's obviously better?

It is easy to talk the talk but if that translated into the real world there are a couple of guys on this board who would be doing goals for Armagh in a penalty shootout lol

PS Soupy Campbell is one of the most exciting players to watch I have ever seen.


Conaty is a class act too, the directions to recycle came from the side.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on May 12, 2024, 06:40:40 PMArmagh fold again on Penalties, Why was Rian O'Neil taken off. Awful way to lose a game. Some Armagh supporters argue that's that a draw! 4 point up with 20 mins to go, Armagh went bck into their shell instead pushing on.
This time Armagh did not fold, good save to win it. Rian couldn't walk at full time, physio was working on him he had run out of gas. Why Oisin doesn't start or come in earlier is a mystery. But Donaghy telling Jarly Og to recycle a mark that was scoreable  points to a mindset that leads to losing games. Twice at least they had the game won and then stopped doing what was working for them. Players running into dead ends and not taking opportunities points to that  same mindset. Something needs to change, if not McGeeney then the back room. They need a change of direction. Some incredible scores yesterday from both teams, fair play Donegal they found a a way.

Like the guy at  the soccer who thinks its ok to give the w**ker gesture to opposing players, I can't stand people who think it is ok to abuse players or mentors from the other county/club. It is sport, nobody dies if your team is beaten and there are more serious issues in the world. As an Armagh man I was absolutely disgusted back in the two Brians era when Paudie O'Se one of the greatest GAA men of all time, got a stream of abuse from a so called Armagh fan in the Cusack as he walked the line. The crowd around him reminded him that Paudie had achieved more than he could even dream of, he attempted to get physical but was put in his box by  a woman sitting behind him. Drink taken of course, but this is nothing new and has no place in our games. Drunks should not be allowed in. To call a spade a spade, pun intended, there is an element mainly from Lurgan who only go  to championship games that are liquored from  early morning that let everyone else down.

Donegal will win at a canter.

Quote from: Armagh18 on April 29, 2024, 01:33:33 PMThe state of Clones, the traffic/parking would probably put plenty off going. The football (in our game) was brutal but at least it was close, Tyrone and Donegal was decent.
Plus the timing of 5 on a Saturday wasn't good. The crammed season also puts pressure financially on fans.

Quote from: Wildweasel74 on April 27, 2024, 11:08:41 PMHas the Ulster Championship shown up that none of the teams are fit enough to win a all-Ireland?
It didn't need the Ulster Championship to prove that. Derry are the closest Ulster team but even at that they will need a fair amount of luck to win it. Someone made the point about Armagh not coping with players running at them at pace. It's not just Armagh most teams I've seen can't cope with that. I only caught the last 10 minutes of Armagh v Down, it confirms what I believe, that we are no nearer to Sam now than 10 years ago. I watched two and a half games in full yesterday, the Tyrone/ Donegal followed by Galway Kilkenny and the first half of Limerick Tipp. The difference in refereeing between the two codes is startling. The physicality and the hits in hurling would leave most inter county footballers in a heap. Oh and while I'm at it fair play to Antrim beating Wexford.

Quote from: downtothecore on April 25, 2024, 10:20:37 PMNewry or Armagh would have had a full house so opportunity lost for good crowd and  atmosphere. I guess the mighty Armagh would prefer a trot out in clones to help prepare for the ulster final...
Newry/Armagh wouldn't be fair on Down given that Pairc  Essler  is in Armagh ;D County that is.

I didn't see the Derry/Donegal match, but I am seriously impressed by any team allegedly out played who's best players were stymied but still managed 17 points. Goals win games but can be prevented. it was 15 scores to 17.

Quote from: Tones on April 24, 2024, 10:46:06 AMFirstly it would be valuable to put a phone queue system in place to say you have reached such and such surgery you are now 15 in the queue, it would help a lot of folk especially older folk and give you some semblance of getting somewhere instead of redialling 100 times only to be told there is no appointment.  I would save some appointments each morning for very vulnerable people who ring in after the 8.30 deadline so they can be seen the next morning, it would be great if a doctor rang back instead of a receptionist to say go to A&E instead they are so protected it's impossible to get speaking to them.

Alot of surgeries have this already, but it depends on the number of phone lines coming in to the building. Digital lines are able to cover as many as you want pretty much and will be the norm in 5 years or so.

It also doesn't improve your chances of getting an appointment. There will still be the same amount of people dealt with in a day.

at my doctors if you dont get an appointment in the morning you can ring back and get it recorded that you tried. If this happens 3 days in a row you get a call from the doctor on day 4. I think its a fair system
Same with mine

is yours in Lurgan by any chance haha

Quote from: tbrick18 on April 24, 2024, 08:25:27 PMOnly thing for sure is that there are no winners, but hopefully justice is service.

As I said before, it is hard to see how you can prove something 20 years ago beyond reasonable doubt, I doubt there were witnesses other than his wife.

Hearing other cases the PPS didn't prosecute due unlikelihood of conviction even when there is evidence, they must feel there's a high chance of conviction based on what ever evidence they have. No?

I've no idea myself - I'm doing a lot of reading between the lines and may well be getting it wrong.

Today was the 1st appearance. I'd be shocked if the PPS even have the full file yet let alone have made a decision. It would be unusual for them to have the full file yet particularly if the allegations only surfaced in March.

However, at present this case seems different from teachers, coaches etc where there are multiple people to come forward. But you never know.

Are there not two people involved in this?
yes
