Is there relegation from championship this year? Or is it scrapped from Championship and League this year?

This whole East Down vs South Down bullshit bores the life out of me.. There’s 1 Football County team we aren’t split in two

Longstone will give the point their fill of it this eve...W'Point riddled with Injuries and Covid too maybe but think there is a serious amount of lads missing tonight...I expect this game to go 1/2pts either way but if I was a betting man I'd say the stone might get a big scalp this eve...hope I'm wrong

CPN will win by 8+ points

Down Facebook page deleted their post about pricing because of the backlash in the comments about charging u16s into matches... But TheWobbler will have you believe it’s justified, there’s an idiot in every village as they say.

If continually shouting louder and louder helps you convince yourself this a simple black and white issue, then I suppose you gotta do what you gotta do.

I prefer chatting to people with a more open mind. So I’m tuning out.

Enjoy the championship. It will never be cheaper again.

When they introduced £2 entry for u16s for “anti-social” behaviour there was backlash on this board now they want to charge £5. Championship was cheaper back in 2019. Good night ✌🏻

So in summary, according to you, the county board which is currently:

1. Not scheduling double headers.

2. Avoiding taking payments at the gate, in favour of losing a cut on every ticket to Stripe and the App producer.

3. Charging reduced prices.

Are only doing all this because they’re batshit crazy bastards who don’t understand capacity regulations in the six counties.

Makes perfect sense.

——

Hit me with “that’s for double headers” all you like. Prior to Covid you’d have paid more than £5 into any SFC game going back 10 years - whether you wanted to watch 1 game, 1.5 games or 2.

There is actually a per adult cost saving going on. Don’t try to pretend otherwise. The maths behind it is primary one stuff.

There is no cost saving going on at all, either you are on the CB or very stupid. The CB have had a disaster and if you can’t see the anger on social media from the decision to charge u16s you don’t belong in the GAA. You just ignored my point where I proved you wrong about the double header you said it doesn’t matter if you wanted to watch 1 game it was still £10.. it was £10 for 2 matches just because you’ve no interest in the match before doesn’t mean it was £10 for 1 match.

Also the buck stupid decision to schedule SHC and SFC match’s for Bredagh 24 hours apart is another example of how incompetent they are.

County Board charging u16s into championship games is a f**king disgrace

Would you not perhaps accept that:

1. When capacity restrictions mean that everyone attending must pre-purchase a ticket, the only practical way to do this is with a charge? I mean if Joanne from Ballyholland books 4 free children’s tickets for Sunday’s match and then decides not to go, then that’s 4 of the allocated spaces gone, never to return, and 4 tickets she cannot pass onto an adult. Maybe you believe that all the Joanne’s of the world will cancel their tickets and free them up again. I don’t think any of them would.

2. Furthermore, as capacity  is limited, and every person has to be accounted for, then for more popular games, that capacity is going to be sorely tested. If there’s 1000 tickets available and the first hundred dads in grab free tickets for their children, “just in case they might go”, then the game will sell out in no time. Except it isn’t sold out. It’s instead a giant pain in the hole for everyone involved as real, bonafide club stalwarts will miss out because Frank and Liam from the next parish may or may not  each bring their 4 kids. Frank and Liam might not even go themselves if it rains. Sure it’s only a fiver.

3.  £5 for an adult to attend an SFC match is about £5 less than it was 2 years ago, which surely negates somewhat the cost of bringing along children.


Maybe, just maybe there sometimes is a world of grey between “what used to happen” and “a f**king disgrace”?

TheWobbler the restrictions lifted mean there are hardly any capacity issues now, U16s could be purchased as a free option and then scanned. So that keeps track off numbers too. Also hardly any JFC/IFC games sold out last year and you expect to your arguement to hold up for those games?

And you obviously don’t go too many games as championships games were only £10 because they were double headers in which u16s was free for attending. JFC and MFC was a double header in 2019 and was £10 for the double header so this £5 cheaper bullshit you came up with you can put it back up your arse where you pulled it from.

O'Shea was poor, but there were 6 or 7 players even poorer than him today, don't see anybody mention them.

Name them.. I'd argue Hennelly was maybe worse than him but that would be it

So Conor Deegans will be announced as the new senior manager soon, what are your thoiughts? Is he keeping it warm for Laverty?

That’ll be us relegated and if we meet anyone other than Fermanagh we’ll be out first round in Ulster.. Terrible manager, Counter underage players that I know, they didn’t like his methods and thought his tactics were outdated
