Regarding the Dunloy problem. The county board have refused Naomh Gall the game.

Well somebody is lying milltown because I have it on good authority that St Gall were asked twice if they would play the match

The county board did not even ask us to play the game. Thatís what Iíve been told. To be fair Iím not in the inner circle but would but would be speaking regularly with the senior members and committee, like I did on Saturday night and that was there answer. They could have been telling me porkies butÖthe fact of the matter is there was a ballís up and two sets of lads have missed out and itís a hollow victory.

Hurling leagues promotion and relegation
« Reply #33 on: November 17, 2006, 09:58:58 PM »
Skull First I apologise for referring to u in  the original post, as I said in my second post, thirty seconds later, I clearly was not paying attention. Secondly I played for a long time and I never once pulled on boots just to go out and fulfill a fixture, there is such a thing as pride in urself and ur jersey and complaining about the opposition trying to hard is a lame excuse. Thirdly anyone with even a fleeting knowledge of Antrim GAA will know that leagues structures are changed almost every year and certainly every second to third year. Yes you are correct to say this is unfair and unjust and my own club has both benifitted and suffered from it in the past as I am sure St Galls have, however it is not a huge surprise.
Anyway my question which no one answered/ knows the answer to is what are the proposed changes and how far down do they go.

according to an "Antrim official" it's just hearsay and nothing will be changed. your right I've played every game to win whether it's Guess Who with my kids or hurling. but the fact remains that (and if you had have been there) they had a different degree of intensity in playing that game (ballycastle) if they had have played like that all year then they could have went a lot further than they did.

it's about time the sorted out the hurling leagues properly. the football leagues are a roaring success, even the lower leagues in hurling all the teams seem to be fighting for positions, but the senior league has been a joke for a number of years.

Antrim Captain
« Reply #37 on: November 18, 2006, 01:59:43 PM »
giving mc gourty captaincy would make his ego trip even more theatrical, i honest dont know how he could captain a team, any game i have seen him in he has given abuse to every man that makes a mistake and even towards management, this isn't the behaviour of a county captain! i hear he and fellow st galls men havent made a show at trials as yet, interesting!

If the St Galls players, or any player for that matter, don't appear for trials and dont get picked will the supporters stand behind the manager for taking a stand? Or will it be a case of we pick the best available and to hell with the boys who go everytime and are prepared to stand up and be counted?

Any white smoke from Casement yet about the managers job? The decision was meant to be confirmed tonight wasnt it?

Apologies if I have missed something on this thread before about this but is it the case a few of the St Galls contingent did not attend trials/are not putting themselves forward because of what happened to Culbert?

So anyone in the know - is this a training panel with a view to maybe bringing people on board later in the year/start of the season?

And finally...any word on the hurling?

It was confirmed last night that sambo and woody have been appointed as the county hurling managers. They won the vote from the floor , which was not as close as a lot of people expected.

I thought this was to be decided by a separate committee?

It that not very harsh - I cant claim to know very much about club hurling or the last manager but I go to the majority of the county hurling games and Jim McKernan did everything that was asked of him.

On what basis was this decision made? Is it simply that the position is up for grabs every year? In the interests of continuity this seems a bad decision
