What was Conor Meylers contribution that was so tellin?

Iím amongst a lot of swearing he said it was deliberate

Wouldn't pay much attention to Conor Meyler - reckons he recovered from a broken leg in 4 weeks.

Any decent performances from Clonoe Ardboe game?
Thought Kyle Coney had an excellent game. Impressive work rate from him tonight.

Agree with this, Nullified mcclure and had a decent impact himself. His passing skills are top drawer. Seems to have got himself into serious shape, be very surprised if he doesnt get a call up for next year.

Cassidy and Skeet had a decent tussle to, hopefully he will get a run next year too see if he can make the grade.

Clonoe looking to be an ageing outfit, same faces there for past few years, an injection of young blood needed.

I couldnt imagine Clonoe are happy with his performance yesterday. Appeared to be at no more than 3/4 pace with or without the ball, very poor chasing back and never near an Ardboe man at any point, offered nothing on kickouts and totally no impact on the game

Ardboe the slightly better of 2 poor teams tbh. Coney stand out man of the match

Watched it from close proximity to the Clonoe bench.

The manager was less than impressed with McClure and told him in no uncertain terms.

Big fan of Michael Cassidy - think he can become a regular.

Everyone on the panel is Catholic. People are away with the fairies, as far as this is concerned. If they don't want to be Catholic and say prayers they are allowed to have that choice. Not one Tyrone player past or present has said anything against this.
It is not a cult. If people want to be Catholics part of that is praying, First Communion, Confirmation likewise.
What's the next outrage? Tyrone development squad all forced to make their confirmation. People need to get some perspective on this. They're not reading Mein Kampf for God's sake. They're saying prayers. And the last time I checked you're still allowed to do this.

No, they aren't.

No Mickey Harte fan but Sean Cavanagh is out of order in my opinion.....Some of the stuff he is telling should stay between him the management and the players he played with ....

Cavanagh is a bollox. He's painting himself out to be houlier than thou but I'm afraid it's not washing. As someone on the main thread stated, Tyrone people have seen the real Cavanagh in club games over the year, constant diving, moaning and complaining.

Richie Donnelly in for operation, thats him out of the club championship. Tyrone Championship just got a lot less handsome  :(
Donaghmore could make a game of it now.

Been injured 8 weeks he said on his post and played on, Mickey Harte doesn't think much of his forwards sittin on the bench as he continued to play him on the starting team right up until the final!!
Doesnt say much either on richys behalf, willing to play for the County but not his club, trillick will be fuming!!

In fairness to the lad I'd give him the credit here on this one trying to force his way, successfully into the senior county team being injured if true.

Trillick probably know he's going to get a bit of a ban after the weekend anyway?

Who says he had to get himself sent off? Sean is what, 6'5" and 14 stone? He's well able to handle himself. From his writing here you'd think this lad was an introverted 5'5" and 9 stone wet.

He showed considerable restraint, but as he's himself admitted, he's dealt out his fair share of (unjust) punishment (M.Murphy).

Is there not something a bit hypocritical slagging off a lad for spitting and nipping you during a match when one of your team mates was doing the exact same to the opposition??

Who?

Ah come on lads - we all know what some of the best players Tyrone had in the 00s were up to, McMenamin just took the notoriety but Lawn, Gormley, Jordan, McGee, McMahons were all keen exploiters of the dark arts, of course they hit fair, they also were more than happy to go unfair too.

Lets call a spade a spade, nice guys finish last and all that.

Cavanagh continues his revision of history but he's fooling noone.

Cavanagh doing a great job selling this book. But to be honest I'm sick reading about him now.

Seems to be selling himself as a houlier than thou figure from the excerpts. Sean is no saint.

Always been a big fan of Donaghy. Massive player in every sense - really enjoyed his book also if any of you haven't read it give it a go, you'll find a new found respect for a legend of the game.

I heard there wasn't much in the incident. Cant see anything come of it.

More concerning is the recording of a well known, well travelled manager asking a game to be decided before a ball was thrown in. Thankfully the opposition refused and subsequently tanked them.

Suspect this is nonsense - do managers wear recording devices these days on the off hand chance others ask for points?

Joe Brolly on the money again! Mickey Harte is holding Tyrone back. Monaghan players need to dry their eyes. No mention of the homophobic remarks regarding Cathal mccarron. Sure that was great craic wasn't it? The two Wylie's shouldn't be aloud to play Gaelic football lol

AFL style tackle.

Simple. You can empty a man if you get him - you'll soon see the end to this nonsense ongoing.

Furthermore it'll actually bring in a clear, defined tackle into our game....finally.
Gaelic football already has several types of clear, defined tackle.

Why would it need one which would massively increase the emphasis on physical strength (far more than it has already been increased)
and preclude small players from competing?

Why would anybody think that making what Sean Cavanagh did to Conor McManus in 2013 would make Gaelic football a more attractive game to watch?

Really? Because I tackle the same way every single week - one week its a foul, one week its great stuff. Same in any game, I truly do not understand what a tackle is in our sport, seems like you can do whatever you want to a Michael Murphy or an Aiden O'Shea because 'they can take it'.

The AFL sack isn't about an emphasis on physical strength, it's an emphasis on intelligence to get a ball and release, create and exploit space. It's also largely irrelevant if you can't actually catch your man - so the only real physical element is speed.

Hearing reports of a big row in Edendork and Trillick today, Ruairi Brennan and Richie Donnelly (who wasnt even playing) sent off. This is said to be the 4th field fight involving Edendork whatever Barton is coaching.

Edendork played yesturday

Saturday then.

Nothing incident.

One Trillick player sent off, one Edendork. Nothing you don't see in every game at Senior Level. There was also a playing member from Trillick sent off (not togged out) who entered the field, again - nothing out of the ordinary. There was a further red card later in game for Edendork but this was unrelated and more for stupidity as opposed to anything untoward.

Referee was to blame for making players frustrated with some remarkable calls against both sides.
