I've turned my hand to referring myself.  Always thought I could do a good job. But it's not that simple.  Some qualities that help a ref is being able to keep up with the play and being a hurler also.

If you were to implement the rules by the book the game would very quickly be a match of frees. The rules in hurling are mere guide lines per say and not supposed to be enforced every time. The trick is to make sure you give the players justice in the moment. Some times you can get lucky depending on the personality your dealing with.

Explaining to players why you made a decision is good for communication. I often tell players if they are getting too feisty the cards are coming out.

In most instances if you approach the game honestly try your best players appreciate that.

The Trump hush money payment recordings should be interesting.

Cohen is going to be a big danger, all in the lead up to the mid terms...
Someone said that the big problem with lying all the time is trying to remember them all. Trump has the added problem of trying to stay coherent.
I wonder how the Trump base feels about the Prez being all loved up with Putin.

Stay coherent?

To be fair to Raven, that was probably the biggest achievement on here from a very small club. And I have very few good memories of Dromara!
I see in today's paper Tyrone have narrowed the pitch in to try and limit the Dubs attacking wide players :-\
Tyrone will have some egg on their face after doing this and still being the wrong end of the result tomorrow evening.

Succession plan is being put in place very similar to last one , Tony Mac to come in for a year with McGeeney to appease the Cross playing contingent and McGeeney detractors ,with McGeeney and co.departing at the end of 2019 regardless of results. McEntee then gets five year deal

Could be all speculation but you heard it here first , word from the West is that McEntee already gone from Mayo.
A mcentee geezer partnership won't work whatsoever even if it is for a year. Mcentee heavily linked with other intercounty jobs in ulster for 2019 but he may wait until the Armagh post becomes vacant again.

I can't understand how any Armagh fan would support Geezer continuing. Galway hurlers had a lot of poor managers over the last 29 years, drawing fans through the wringer again and again but none of them got 4 years plus on the back of such mediocrity. The  problem with serial managerial incompetence is what it does to the spirit of the players.  Armagh should be at the level of Roscommon at the very least.

Ahh now greatpoint that is not funny and below the line.

Back to the game and I'd love to see Johnny Cooper and McMahon getting their come uppance
Cooper got Bradley sent off for nothing last year in the league and he's always up to something.

I'd say Richie Donnelly must be relishing this season as he probably always believed he could be a good player but often was in and out and always seemed injured and a bit like Mattie, it was hard to know where his best position was. But a bit like Cormac McAnallen going to full back, Richie seems to be settling into the roll well and it will be interesting on Sunday to see do the Dubs leave two men on him or risk him being left one on one.
A small but interesting point I noticed from last week's game was that one time he turned his man I think and he was either tripped or fell but he got up again really quickly and accelerated away. His overall game has improved and he's allowing Skeet and McShane or whoever is in there a lot more freedom rather than just Bradley there last year as a decoy forward. ;-)

I bring my kids to loads of Dubs game in Croker and far too often its game over by half time and half the fans stay at the bar for the first 20 mins of the 2nd half. My kids are bored with it now and so I think even they would like to see a good tough game with something a bit different thrown in to test them.
My attitude is "to hell with the Donegal game" and just go full on to beat the Dubs with whatever it takes
It seems a luxury that we can leave our best two forwards on the bench to come in and run at them the way the Dubs used to bring in McManoman and Co.

Mannion could be the winning and losing of the game in my eyes. I've watched him loads and he can be an awesome player on his day and he's got better in recent years but I do think he can be got at and his game can be upset and frustrated.

No doubt when we lose there will be loads of "Told you so" posters on here delighted to see us fall off our high horses again but at least we have the chance to try to joust with maybe the best team ever. Id like to call out those such posters now before the game and say who do they WANT to win and so they can't have it both ways and be happy afterwards.

OMG what if its a draw. LOL.
