How do they decide the 16 teams in the senior championship next year? Presumably it will be the 12 division one teams but how are the 4 other teams decided?

Mario, anybody can play senior championship if they want to. So in theory all of the clubs in Derry could put themselves forward to play in the senior championship. Think of Glenullin recently who play intermediate/division 2, but played in the senior championship.
Yeah i remember that, but the default position was always the 16 Div 1 teams, that was a one off as Glenullin didn't want their pride hurt.  I suppose my question is what is the default position next year?

Next Year: Top 15 in division 1 plus first in division 2 from this year.
Thereafter: All Division 1 & top 4 in division 2 from previous year

Help me out here folks... does someone usually do a pre-masters betting blog. It rules out rookies, oldies, etc etc to whittle the field down to maybe 10 possible winners.  Can’t find it.  Would anyone have a link?

Saw a stat that Li had 23 putts per round but McIlroy had 27 per round
And Hatton (3rd) & Levy (4th) had 28 putts per round.

Fleetwood (the form player going into last week) was over 28.

The lowest overall average so far this year on the PGA tour is 26.6

Li was outstanding last week & he pipped McIlroy by one shot; McIlroy played brilliantly, however, he is held to a higher standard by everyone but especially by his begrudgers

Truly the Joe Canning of golf.
He's not fit to clean Joe's hurl.

He's not held to a higher standard than Tiger was. Consider Rory can't hold a two stroke lead with half a round to play with the fact that Tiger never lost a major when leading before the final round. See the point I'm making? I hope he never wins another PGA event let alone a major, then Stevie Watson can actually report on the most popular sport in the North.

You sure about that - YE Yang - 2009 PGA championship!!

Fair enough - removed.

I'm not entirely sure what line I crossed given the criticism handed out here daily.

Couldn’t see it anywhere on here but as far as I understand Callum Brown was ineligible to play for Derry last night.

So under the new rules you can be too old to play inter-county minor but not old enough to play inter-county senior.

Very strange scenario.

Went down to the SN kilcoo game today and would love to say that I'm surprised but unfortunately not, the tactics the kikcoo management had in instructing their players to do almost anything outside the rules of the game were disgusting. Kilcoo were lucky not to have 4 or 5 men red carded and I can only say it's a god send that Paul McIver is staying with kilcoo until they win an Ulster title as it'll keep him away from the Derry job for a very long time!

Slaughtneil were as poor as I've seen them probably since their first outing this year but still had too much for the down champions, in saying that if kilcoo had have scored their penalty it could have been a very different result. On the penalty issue the referee had indicated he was allowing for advantage after a foul outside the area then within the advantage time frame there was a foul committed inside the area. It's of my understanding it should have been brought back for the initial foul as you can't blow for a second foul whilst allowing advantage, can anyone shed any light on this matter?

I'm almost sure if that was the case, then the correct decision was made to award the penalty. I think there was a similar issue discussed widely in the AI final, where Mayo should have been awarded a penalty during a period of advantage.

From the referee handbook
"If, during the advantage period, another foul is committed against the team which received the original advantage, then a free kick/puck will be awarded for the “second” foul if it is considered more advantageous than the original."

So do Screen have any chance on Sunday? We are certainly up against it but we'll have to perform to our absolute maximum.

We need a similar performance to the first half against Coleraine & will probably need a couple of goals to win.

Chrissy McKaigue probably needs to be man-marked. He is currently their only genuine top notch player (i.e. he would make most/all county teams) but they have a plethora of quality throughout the team.

The defensive set up doesn't work against Slaughtneil, they've shown time & time again that they have the patience & quality to counteract it & eke out the win.

Hoping for a good game.... or I'd even take a miserable game with a Screen victory 😜

Sorry,but how was he able to lift his head and pick out a foot pass if he was being harrassed and tackled so well

Probably because he's David Clifford!!

All modern tourist attractions/arenas would have these kind of bollards built into the architecture - for example the big "ARSENAL" sign outside the Emirates.  But then that wouldn't stop a Manchester Arena type attack.

Provisions have to be made for these car rampages as they are so easy to carry out but unfortunately it's not going to stop the terrorists carrying out other types of attack.

It's mathmatically impossible to get back less than a quid..

No its not...

£1 win part is gone
£1 e/w part is divided by 4 (4 players finished T5) = £0.25 stake
Place odds probably 1/5 of pre-tournament  odd = evens
winnings £0.50
