Embarrassing stuff. A complaint on the basis that it shouldnt have been 15 v 15? Conceeding therefore that we couldnt beat them with same number of men on the field but needed the advantage of an extra man to do so..

I don't agree with the appeal but your logic above is foolish.... by the same thinking everytime an opposing team had a player sent off should the benefiting team say let him stay on sure if we can't beat them with 15 its not a really a victory!!!!!  ::)

Only by the same thinking if you are stupid. A sending off during a game is not the same as a team starting extra time or a replay without their full complement of players.  Whether or not you agree with that rule is a different story but it is not the same. The evidence that they could not win 15 v 15 was that they could not do so in normal time nor could they do it in extra time. Nor indeed could they do it in extra extra time.

Tyrone have lodged an objection to the Ulster council after the result of the u20 game. Doubt much will come of it. It would cause Ulster a major headache replaying the game.

Embarrasing stuff from the county board. Tyrone were beat. Move on.

Under 20s have lost their appeal against the Armagh result.

The appeal was misguided and desperation.

think someone said it above but Devlin doesn't seem to have a great record with the minors and now under 20's, couldn't understand how he got the job in the first place given the calibre of those in for it.

Who else was in for it at the time?

Who ultimately makes the decision whether to appeal or not in a case like this?
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

County board have disgraced themselves twice in the last week. Firstly sacking John Hurson by text because he,s involved in humanitarian work for the Palestinians of Gaza and his face no longer fits. Secondly appealing the result of the U20 semi final, embarrassing behavior, so much for 'Gaelic Tyrone'.

Not being close to the case o donít know what their grounds were. What is obvious is that many were unhappy with an appeal. Iíll side with that camp until communication improves over the matter. Wish Armagh luck and get on with it unless there was a significant unfair application of the rules  along the way.

Don't understand why he got the heave ho for Palestine? I know the GAA isn't meant to be political but its not as if he's the first person to show allegiance to a cause or party? Is it not well known that 1 of the County board officials is a big SF man?
