Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling
« on: January 16, 2018, 10:18:39 AM »
So Rouse has went from Dromore - Division 1 to Dungannon - Division 2 and now back to his native Brackaville - Division 3. He'll be in ladies football next. Wonder is he taking any envelopes from his own people??
He gets itchy feet.  He canít settle. Was there not a bit of tension between himself and Brackavile back in the day? Brackaville got a makeover as well a couple of years ago and a new crew voted in so he must be back in the good books. He wonít do Brackaville any harm. Theyíll be glad to have him back.

Bendy u appear to have a lot of fingers in many of the clubs in east Tyrone?! Ardboe, moortown, rahillys and now Brackaville.

I think itís the right time for Tommy Bowe to retire heís had a superb career. Around the start of this decade he was as good as any winger in world rugby.

whats happening in Ardboe?  Whos quit?  Whos fell out?  Whats the falling out over?  Possibly relegation the year?

Thereís a lot of chat going around. I donít know all the facts but I can confirm that one player has transferred to Ballinderry and since my previous post I have received confirmation that Mick Hagan is going back to Moortown.
One of my own club men was asking me whatís happening in Ardboe because ďthere are men leaving left, right and centreĒ. The same man would know the craic.
Apparently the club appointed a man called Noel OíNeill as manager at a committee meeting without any consultation with players and members and he also happens to be a brother of the chairman.
Supposedly itís a continuation of a coup from last year when they got rid of their senior management.
But you wouldnít know whatís going on down around the loughshore. Between them and Moortown thereís never a dull moment. Speaking of Moortown, Paul Devlin and the cubs have made the move to Ardboe. That will be an interesting derby when the time comes. Devlin wouldnít have had much respect for the Ardboe Club over the years.
Is there any Ardboe men on here who could give us a little clarity on the latest episode?

Bendyerback, what you have described sounds more like Tyrone version of Game of Thrones. As usual with these things I imagine the truth lies somewhere in between. I know they have lost a few men but I reckon some of them will be back before the end of the year and it'll roll around to next years AGM when there's another row.
Another row?
I wouldnít be familiar with the going ons in game of thrones but it sounds delightful.
I donít think they will be fighting relegation this season, I wouldnít like to see them going down over some silly decisions. The competition between them and ourselves has always been healthy. But youíre probably right.

I thought you were an ardboe man bendyback? You seem to know a lot of the goings on in that club for them not to be yours?

Wonder does that make Brook-Khan more likely?

Think youíre a bit harsh on Frampton there Nrico. Donaire is a huge name in boxing and that fight will tell us a lot about him. I think he gets a bye with that last fight being out if the ring that long.

Iím not sure Laois would have given Tyrone a game that year in the final. They met in the league final that same year and there was 10 points in it. They were a level or two below the likes of Tyrone, Armagh and Kerry in those few years in my opinion.

Just remember. Barry McElduff wasnít mocking anyone. He was making fun of himself. It is not against the law for an elected representative to have a bit of fun. His voters seem to like it. He tops the poll in every election he participates in and is known for his 24 hour service to his constituents. What is utterly sickening about this is the kicking he received from fellow politicians who know him, know his anti sectarian principles and know he meant absolutely nothing to do with Kingsmills when he put that loaf of bread on his head. There was no rational or logical advantage for him to gain by mocking the victims of a sectarian outrage that even horrified senior IRA figures and happened during a ceasefire. But the poor victims and relatives were the last thing on the minds of those who decided that this would be a great piece of moral high ground to bash him around the place.

Precisely

I wonder how far back in time one would have to go for an example of when Sinn Fein and its supports actually found a Sinn Fein member doing something wrong.

Sinn Fein could put Barney the dinosaur up for election in West Tyrone and heíd still get elected. I donít think itís a ringing endorsement to say he tops the polls all the time. Itís another case of voting through orange and green eyes.

McElduff can actually give his party the high moral ground here by resigning which would be a big statement that they are serious about respect across the board and show that there is a bit of decency. Considering his apology and subsequent offer to meet the families, I don't believe it was a deliberately malicious act but it was an idiotic thing to do and he would be best doing the right thing for his party and for nationalists/republican's in general and that mean's stepping down.

It would negate any accusations of hypocrisy when SF call on Foster et al to resign. Frampton should stick to the boxing instead of weighing into this debate.

So Frampton isnít allowed an opinion on anything other than boxing? Always have to laugh at people saying this that sportsmen should stick to their sport whilst at the same time offering an opinion on said situation.

Wasnít bad, wasnít overly great either. Inbetweeners is the standard-bearer when it comes to comedies over the past decade and it was hilarious from the start (if you enjoy that kind of humour/are good craic). Derry Girls doesnít come close to that but maybe it will get better.

I would agree with that. Think the reaction went a bit overboard on twitter etc. The girl playing Erin was over-acting (if thatís a word) her role bordering on being very annoying.

I'm sure she was acting as directed.

Absolutely but I found it to be a bit over the top. Maybe itíll be toned down in later episodes.

Justin Pipe being an asshole coughing behind a player as he was going for a double.

I don't like watching him. He's so deliberate and looks like an arse.

Just realised it was actually on match dart. Iíd say the crowd will be on his back in the next match.

Matty Donnelly is no Captain I can tell you that. Very poor for Tyrone this year. It just goes to show how petty and spiteful Harte is when the only man for the job is totally overlooked because he talked to RTE. Nasty behaviour yet again.

I know youíre right I think he should have gone with the player thatís captained his club to an unlikely OíNeill Cup success. Oh wait. . . .

Good choice by Mickey anyway. Donnelly is a quality player and being captain of his county could potentially make him even better. Also a good example to young lads who arenít good enough initially - go back to your club, work hard on your own development, take responsibility for why youíre not getting on and come back a far better player.
