heard today that only 4 clubs voted against harte. landslide victory for him. amazing really when u see the oppostion on internet forums. certain stipulations on his new contract though, tyrone have to send a delegate to speak to rte and his backroom team has to be reduced. i wonder who will get the chop?

That was expected before but players collectively decided not to speak...  if you're to believe that  ::)
Of course they did!! Then when the captain walks out of the changing rooms for last time he runs straight into the arms if RTE!!!

Sure just say Sean is the press Rep, he wont mind chatting to them!

his appearance now totally casts doubts on the point of this RTE ban...

I wonder is he still observing the alcohol ban and the ban on unhealthy food. I wonder is he still following the fitness programme he agreed to follow! Grow up ffs. As part of the team he observes the team etiquette, he's not part of that anymore and he clearly wants a career in the media so he'd be mad to turn down the opportunity. How long should he wait to satisfy the faceless (small) minority, who clearly have no influence in their clubs, who shout very loud on Internet forums?

Jesus wept! Drink bans etc are not optional to play inter-county football. Not chatting to a national broadcaster due to issues the manager has is due to the manager ruling with an iron-fist! How is not doing interviews part of a teams etiquette?!? Sean retired then walked out of the changing room and picked up the PR baton, if he had any real allegiances to the Fuhrer he wouldnt have spoken to Rte and defo not last night! It makes a mockery of this one-foe-all crap!

Yes MH is an allireland wining manager which we should be forever indebted to, but his time was up 3-4yrs ago! He is a hypocrite who takes "principled" stances on issues that some have nothing to do with football but he always brings it back to Tyrone football. Any issues he has personally (and that includes RTE) should not interfere with Tyrone football! There is no reason why a young lad who wins a MOTM award cant go out and receive his award, petty to say the least! I would say a few of these younger lads who cant/wont step out of line will regret it in a few years time not receiving their awards. If there are Allstars handed out to Tyrone and Sean gets 1 and a few others, so Sean can talk to Rte but the rest cant!?? Farcical!

3 more years of Groundhog Day! But at least we can enjoy another McKenna Cup! That's what memories are made of!

Well said JP.  Couldnt agree more with you.

If its anything like the time that McCann got the chop Gavin may keep an eye out in the papers as MH certainly won't tell him to his face.

Interesting interview Big Sean did with RTE

If I am to believe the rumours I heard that Sean didn't like Mickey much come the end - looks like he is a relieved man that can have his say on things. Lavishing praise on Jim Gavin and below paragraph is interesting:

"What really impressed me was the way Jim Gavin was able to read us. We were beaten in almost every facet of the game. We didn't change our approach quick enough, they were so impressive in the way they closed us down. All told, it was Gavin at his meticulous best."

Compare this with Mickeys interview after the match - "no need to change"  ???

Very interesting that he is gushing in his praise for Gavin. I heard from one of the players that Harte had tried to motivate the players in the run up to the game about wiping the smug smile off Gavin's face. Harte obviously doesn't like Gavin and the praise now from Cavanagh could be seen as an indirect dig at harte.

Sorry redhanddefender I'm not calling for Mickey to go or moaning - I can accept that he's here for the next three years and thats fine - I just like to debate Tyrone GAA with like minded people - some of whom I will accept have a different opinion to mine and thats okay too.

just found the article interesting and wanted to see what other views where on it.

Do you believe your right 100% of the time and no one can have a different view to yours?

Why do yous think its an issue he's talkin to RTE, isnt it that Tyrone players arent talking to them and since he isnt a Tyrone player then I guess he can talk to whoever he feels?
Do people still expect Cavanagh not to play in starred fixtures next season aswel

Firstly i don't think its an issue that he's talking to RTE - I just think that the rhetoric that Harte uses saying the players are free to talk to RTE if they want is bullshit - obviously theres a fear factor involved and Cavanagh (rightly in my opinion) talked immediately to them after his retirement.

Secondly my main point was that I sense an under tone in Cavanaghs interview here that Tyrone had no plan B and where beaten by a shrewder manager - hardly something you would expect from departing captain so soon after a very embarrassing defeat, particularly when the manager has said the system won't change.

But maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Good Luck to Mickey I hope he changes the system but it was Einstein who said:

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result!
