Derry blown up for 1 handpass in a row!! Is that even a thing!!??  And also, 2 handpasses in a row.

Tyrone twice got away with 4 handpasses in a row - both resulting in scores.

i have started watching 'You' on Netflix.
Started off ok, but its got a bit silly already a few episodes in

Have to agree with this. Started great and i thought this would be a show i'd really enjoy. I'm 6 episodes in now and it's on the slide.


Watched episodes 7 & 8 last night; it's just not living up to the first few episodes.  I'll stick it out for the last 2 in the series anyway.

i wonder who damien mc erlain thought were the standout player/s from yesterdays county final?    i also wonder how he found the car parking in Ahoghill

Are you asking that just because you didn't see him at the county final or because you actually seen him at the Antrim final?

I'm calling bullshit!!

My observations from the weekend for what it’s worth.
For excitement and drama, Cargin and St Galls couldn’t be better
Draperstown and Maghera, well just Draperstown and Maghera were always and always will be
I thought we would have made it to a county final before the neighbours
And does Screenexile just post when Draperstown wins or there’s a row somewhere

He has plenty of time to continue his obsession with diving tyrone players now.

Glad somebody misses me!!

We started OK but the goal really killed us and we just found it much harder to get scores than they did. It was a real blow as we all know that Coleraine can shut it down when they’re in front and pick off points on the break when they need them.

Had we used the long ball a bit earlier than the last ten minutes of the second half we could have got back in it I feel but we were too late.

Good to see some of the young lads from last years victorious minor team get some Senior Championship experience ... There’s always next year!!

Who were they?? I didn't think i saw too many new faces for screen on sunday.

Chances are that i'm wrong as i wouldn't be totally familiar with the lads coming through but:
Marty Bradley & Aaron Bradley both started & were minors last year. 
Was Conor McGovern minor last year?
Noel Rafferty & Ryan Doyle both came on.
Add in JP Devlin too (is he still injured)

A selection of posts on Dan Mullan's performance in the 2017 county final between Slaughtneil & Ballinascreen:

Thought the referee was a joke with some of his decisions against Screen. But this didn't contribute to the result.

Again, no real reflection on the end result as we were so well beaten, but the ref was a joke.

However, Dan Mullan certainly favoured Slaughtneil in their semi final win against Glen and also yesterday.  It was clear for all to see

Mullan had no impact on the scoreline.  He was very poor all over. 

On a side note - Mullan was very poor. Didn't effect the result at all but some really questionable decisions. None more so than the foul on Anton Kelly in the first half that was a stone wall penalty.

Anyone for Ballyliffin? Love the course, hoping Harrington has a good 4 days.

I've never played it but is the irish open course a merge of the 2 courses or the full 18 of one of them?

Feel bad for DJ. He was punished for being good on Thurs and Fri. Sat was a real slog for the leaders in the afternoon. I'd say that has had an effect on his Sunday performance. If I was him I'd be pissed. Fair play to Koepka though. He took his opportunity.

FIGJAM is a momentous arsehole. No wonder the US public love him. Has shown himself up as a cheat and nothing else. If you did that in your local club you'd have trouble getting anyone to play with you, bar other cheats. The USGA also copped out in not DQing him. The rule they applied is for accidentally hitting the ball. He deliberately hit a moving ball.
Don't think that's true.

The rule (14-5) simply states:

A player must not make a stroke at his ball while it is moving.
Strokeplay Penalty: 2 strokes

Now if you purposely deflect or stop the ball, then you are into Rule 1-2, which could mean disqualification (if significant advantage obtained). Rule 1-2 expressly states that it does not apply to anything covered under another rule.

So, did Mickelson strike the ball or deflect the ball?
I think it was a strike, in which case, the right decision has been made.
Although clearly many think this goes against the ethos of the game, and maybe the rule should be amended.

They should've have proceeded under rule 1-2 but he knew what he was doing. Has this now given everyone carte blanche if you hit a shit putt that's going to run into a bunker to just run round and hit it back?
If he's that pissed at how hard the US Open is he should lobby that's it's played under stableford points. Put himself down for a ding.
He's a cheat and an arsehole. Time they took action against him.
This and his Ryder Cup antics were he threw Tom Watson under the bus shows the sort of **** he is.
You'd wanna be a pretty poor bunker player to prefer a 2 shot penalty to being in the bunker!

Mickelson was being lazy rather than a cheat. Not sure he gained any advantage. I'd say he would have got less than 10 had he played properly.
No doubt he's an arsehole. He wouldn't have cared had he got DQ'd.

And the person who drops a ball out of his/her pocket rather than bothering to look their original, or go back and play another from the correct place? Is he/she being lazy too?

If you can't see the difference in those 2 scenarios then there's no point having a discussion!

What Phil did was wrong but it is covered in the rules & he was punished according to those rules - it's another issue whether the rule needs looked at due to the blatant nature of Phils transgression!

The person who drops another ball is out-and-out cheating and not taking the appropriate punishment.

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.
