Maybe we could give him a run at the county secretary position, I hear there may be a vacancy in the not too distant future.

Well you're the man who has promised to personally remove the secretary from his position.

The sad part of this is that Sean McAteer spent more time on the pitch during the championship than Alan Davidson. It's even sadder that some of you accept this without question. It is after all The Down Way.

I don't understand the workings of the county board or the intricacies of development squads and 5 year plans well enough to be able to post on it (and neither do most people on the board, I think), but I know enough to recognise  a gobshite when I see one. If you're going to personally remove Sean Og McAteer, like you said, then fire ahead and make sure you credit it to 'The Down Way' when you do.

So you are happy enough with the status quo?

The players, those who matter most, have shown how unhappy they are with the current set up. We have a better team not playing for a variety of reasons.

Maybe you are happy too with our underage structures, it's been a great year altogether. Another long summer watching everyone else.

Eamonn Burns may not be the greatest manager but at least he isn't ripping off the county unlike some other managers

I suppose that really is The Down Way, summed up in one sentence. Let's get rid of a man who, against all the odds, got us to Divison 1, because he wasn't providing value for money. It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it?
Is Sean og providing value for money? Or could his salary be put to better use within the county?
Maybe we could cut a few more corners, do the players really need fed after training, could they not use public transport to and from games? Maybe they should bring their own water. Tap water would be better for them anyway.

The people who ran up the debt are responsible for it, let them sort it. They were reckless with our finances. Does our county secretaries remit not cover finance or is his salary his only concern?

David Cameron had the decency to resign after the UK voted to leave the EU.
Roy Hodgson had a resignation speech prepared before the Iceland game and did the decent thing after a humiliating defeat.
Sean og does not have an ounce of decency. We have suffered humiliating defeats over the last number of years but everyone else has had to take the long walk off the short plank except Chucky Ned. We have become cannon fodder for the bigger teams and whipping boys for minnows.
As stated earlier our county finances are an absolute disgrace, we are close to 2m in the red. Players and referees are waiting on their expenses and the county draw/tax is a shambles.

He has to go. There has to be a sweetie shop somewhere in the county that he can run into the ground.  #SackChuckyNed

Our most capable players won commit because the whole set up is a complete clusterfuck. It is the nonsense to hat goes on with our county board that needs challenged. The paying public are staying away from games, our best players don't want to play, we couldn't even get anyone to manage us. Sean og telling us that we got our man was like a bad panto in Warrenpoint town hall. Oh no you didn't Sean, no one else wanted it, especially not after the way you treated Jim McCorry.

This needed doing over the last number of years, if we wait any longer we will be in Division 4. Act now for the good of Down football and indeed our hurlers, but make the changes now. We need a new approach, new people with new ideas, not the same old cliches wheeled out year after year. Bring in an interim committee to set the wheels in motion, the old guard have had their day, they have failed. They have to go.

It is clear that Sean og has little or no dignity left, if  he has to be dragged kicking and screaming then that is how it will be. But his days as county secretary are at an end. It is clear that he has become very out of touch with the mood of the Down people.

Nothing but deflection from the "new" poster, so it was others who are responsible for Burrenbridge, and it's the fault of the coaches, why not blame the caterers and the bus driver while you are at it. The buck stops with Sean og, but we need a complete root and branch reform when he goes, we need to get rid of the nodding dogs and hangers on who have allowed this debacle to continue. It should be an honour to represent your county both on the field and off it. Good people are staying away at all levels because these idiots are running what is essentially a closed shop.

What other county secretary is on the pitch with the players and management?? It wouldn't happen in Tyrone.

It wouldn't happen in any other county.

It stops now.

Disgraceful behaviour?

The only disgrace here is that these clowns are allowed to stay in these positions. I have made my feelings known to him on a number of occasions and I can assure you I am not alone in that regard.

These jobs seem to be a job for life, the same old faces sharing the same positions, while they are only nodding dogs for Sean og. Yes we have a new chairman, fat lot of good that did. Nothing has changed.

If nothing else the current position in down shows a distinct lack of ambition, at all levels and while I am not saying I am the man to take Down forward I can guarantee you that I will remove him from his position. Where else would you get it, a guaranteed income, while being totally unaccountable.

If Sean og wants to bring this all out in public then let's get it on, let's invite the public, the supporters club, club down, Jim McCorry, Shane Mulholland, the whole shebang. Maybe someone will have the decency to ring Marty Clarke as well. While we are at it why not ask Jim Wells, the planning office and that black hole in our finances that is Burrenbridge. Paddy Kielty can host the event, he did such a wonderful job at the 2010 banquet, sure it's hard to beat a bit of casual racism while we are at it.
Will the Canal Court still have us, I know I'm welcome there, not sure Sean og still is.
   So you guarantee you are going to sort this all out!Let's start it all off by naming yourself as you seem to have named everyone who'll be at this public event except yourself.Name please or keep quiet.

The only guarantee that I am giving is that Sean og will be out of a job in the not too distant future.

It's as simple as this. You either accept the abject failure as delivered by Chucky Ned or you don't.
It's all well and good saying he has the interests of Down at heart and he is doing his best, but his best is nowhere near good enough. He may well have the interests of Down at heart, but it has been shown time and again that he is an abject failure. His tenure as a paid administrator of Down GAA had been nothing short of a disaster and he even had the gall to complain that we didn't have enough volunteers and those volunteers weren't doing enough. Maybe he volunteers his salary to Club Down on the quiet, but I somehow doubt that very much. He is a self serving fool, who has surrounded himself with nodding dogs. His time and their time has come. #SackChuckyNed

Neither would I.
