When lads start banging on about George Soros, you know it's time to stick a fork in this place.
We had a good run.

I'll ask the question again.
Was anyone brought to justice for killing Paddy Hughes?

The Indo will highlight court material about any « GAA star » from any county. Any kind of skulduggery anywhere is brought to the attention of readers. The idea that Tyrone is singled out is incorrect.

Yes as opposed to the egg chasers they will do so with great glee.
But with Tyrone they do so with a special eagerness

As for the article itself I find it disturbing. Very insensitive to the man's family. A man was killed, no report on the police investigation at the time or inquiry into his death????....just an attempt to link this into other incidents most of which happened decades later.
Pat McCartan I suspect was well aware what the journalist was at when he said this is the first time in 40 years that the press have taken an interest in it.
Disgraceful tabloid journalism but its what we have come to expect as a rule from the Indo

Do you not think he has a point about lack of discipline in the GAA?

In ALL counties when a player is sent off it's the exception rather than the rule for the player/co. board to accept the ban and not look to appeal. Even then the majority of the appeals are based on proceedure rather than the innocence of the individual.

Over the last few weeks we have seen 20 something cards in a Tyrone senior club game, mass brawl in an intermediate game and in the summer the mass brawl with the Tyrone and Armagh U20s.

But sure have a cheap shot at rugby. They at least are clamping down on dangerous tackles to try and make the game safer. In the GAA refs are expected to turn a blind eye to foul play if it means the "star player" might miss a big game for the club/county due to suspension     

I wasnt having a cheap shot at rugby (unless your talking about egg chasing jibe) I was talking about the fawning by the Indo and RTE to (their perceived) elitism of rugby

IF that was his point he didnt make it very well if at all... he was using a man's death 40 years ago, and targeting it as a particular problem in one particular county, shabby stuff.

He is quite clearly and explicitly targeting Tyrone GAA in particular and callously exploiting a man's death to make his point. He quite clearly gave no consideration of the man's family else in the article.

The incident was first and foremost not about the GAA, Tyrone or the clubs but the the unlawful killing of a man with a family. Using it to make a point about any of the former without properly addressing the latter communicates that he doesn't really give a shit about the human cost of that tragedy.

The Tyrone executive released an official statement at the time. "The Tyrone county executive condemns and deplores the unwarranted and unprovoked attack on the minor players and officials at Cookstown on Tuesday, August 2, which resulted in the untimely death of the late Paddy Hughes. The county executive advises all members and officials to do their utmost to ensure that those concerned in this dastardly deed, which brought disgrace and degradation to the GAA and all it stands for, be made amenable for their actions."

Was anyone brought to justice for this man's death?

I've read that a few times now and I still can't see 'EXCEPT DUBLIN' written anywhere.  >:(

'In November 2005, not long after Tyrone had won a second All-Ireland in three seasons, a match between Edendork and Moy was abandoned after just 15 minutes. The breaking point was an incident where an umpire became involved in an altercation with one of the Edendork players.

It was expected the clubs would be severely punished. Instead they were fined. Only a few weeks later, another match was abandoned involving Edendork, this time against Eglish in a sudden-death relegation tie which the referee saw fit to terminate halfway through the second half. What message did that convey?'

Is that not true?

So the investigation has taken place, the footage has been reviewed and the Tyrone county board have agreed that there was nothing malicious in the Sean Cavanagh incident and no further action will be taken. I’d assume there’ll be a few apologies and retractions being offered over the next few days?

That won’t suit some agendas
Welease the video!!

What are they hiding?

The Cavanagh photo was obviously taken and published by himself. It was made deliberately to look worse by doing very little to clean up his face of dried blood before the photo was taken. There appeared to be no broken skin and the blood would therefore have come from the alleged break in his nose.

In other words it was another piece of self promotion to enhance the claims of victimhood in his book.

So by doing nothing to his face he was deliberately making it look worse?
I thought the first quote was very harsh until I saw a picture of Sean in today's Irish News. From what I could see there wasn't a mark on his face. He must be a quick healer.

The reporting on this has been pretty measured in general.

It's good that he has the O'Connors support anyway.
