Crossmaglen Rangers have consented to be part of this BBC NI series. True North? Not North against our will,or until our day comes?

Good show tonight. Didn't think they would agree to show some of the behind the scenes chats with players. A familiar looking lad appeared in the stands at one stage.

I saw a brave few familiar looking lads in the stand.
Repeated on BBC2 on Wed night.

An enjoyable programme. Not much sign of the Kernan brothers in it - I thought they would have got more focus.

Did it capture the essence of parish football? Yes
Is it the same as pretty much any other club in Ireland? Yes
Has it raised the interest in XMG's next championship match? Yes
Will Nelson McCausland have taken offence? Yes

Cross players dont really do hobbies do they? No mention of fly fishing or book reading here. The show gave a small glimpse into why they never lose the hunger for more success.

Wasn't it great to say to them, 'But f**k youse, we're gonna win an All-Ireland anyway.'

What did we think of that show last night on BBC 1? Does Johnny Murtagh need to choose his drinking buddies more carefully?  ???

To be as successful as Cross (or to play county football), you really do need to be obsessed with it. Totally obsessed with training, playing and winning. While Jamie Clarke is a great footballing talent, it was actually refreshing to hear him say what he did. While people criticise him for buggering off when Armagh needs him, I think it's actually a very healthy attitude he has towards his football.

Agree re the Jame Clarke part. He actually looked healthier when he came back too.

Yeah the Clarke bit was the most interesting bit. It was interesting to hear him say he was sort of sick of the whole we have to win all the time so no one else can win attitude.

Also great editing to make it look like he run the whole pitch for the goal against Kilcoo! :D

PS I was also surprised at the fact the Kernans weren't involved at all as they always struck me as a family that liked to get involved in media. Has it anything to do with political views?
