Fair play to MH, takes a strong man to stand by his beliefs in the face of adversary. If we are holding the anglo celt what come July there will be nothing but celebration. If some people need to be cannon fodder for that to happen so be it. That's war people.

That's short sighted. It's the clubs feeding the County and it seems that rather than cannon fodder it's cutting your own throat.
If nobody wants to play club football your celebrations won't be happening.

Meh, ever hear of thinning the herd? Of course the weaker will take their chance to walk away and use this as a justification, as far as I see it there will be six or seven league games played before the first round of Ulster- half of the league wrapped up with just one starred game used. Bodes well for the year on the club scene imo. People love to be outraged.

I generally support harte if some of his decisions do confuse me.

But this situation seems ridiculous. I am no physio but common sense says if you train Friday Saturday you should not be playing a game on Sunday evening. Unless they are going down just to lay about chatting. If that's the case then why not do it closer to home and save the weekend away to weekend of starred or no fixtures?

I don't think its a power struggle I think harte knows now he is half way out the door and this is his one final throw of the dice.

Heard it was your man Kerr who met the Dromore team in Pomeroy and told them under no circumstances will this game go ahead tonight!
Complete shambles and embarrassment!!
If the clubs agrered to playt he game then it should have been played!! Harte was happy enuf for the games to go ahead on Thursday only last week and then decides to put a training session on for Tyrone then!
I wonder did Pomeroy and Dromore and back Omaghs stance!

I've said it before, only a matter of time before "Club" players are contracted to their County for that playing year and Club League Football goes on ahead without them. Would sort this shambles from happening. No point holding up league games for 90% of players just to keep 1 man and his 10% happy

Make them available for Club Championship yeah but let the league games go ahead.

No wonder the youth are disinterested and player drop outs after 18 are so high

I believe Dromore agreed to play the game on Thursday due to a Pomeroy wedding on Saturday, There was no mention of Tyrone training on the Thursday when this was agreed. CCC gave the clubs the option of playing it as starred but according to Dromore lads the Pomeroy county men were adamant they were going to play for the club and f##k Tyrone training. MH then intervened to get the CCC to pull the game completely. Its unfair on both clubs, the Pomeroy players may have their first Wedding with no drink.....

County Team make up about 1% of the adult playing population in Tyrone by my quick calculations!

Micky is a tyrant - how long before he is over thrown by the rebels?

Yeah cause a new manager is going to come in and free up the players to play club football every weekend whilst still having Tyrone winning all Irelands playing open attacking football. The only issue I have is with the timing of the request for the training weekend.

When you see what other counties are doing it wasn't an unreasonable request to have the players for one of the 6 weekends pre Derry game. He wasn't even demanding that the games were cancelled just moved to mid week.

Midweek games happen in local soccer and other counties and in a one off scenario weren't the big deal they were made out to be. Harte is far from perfect but has been allowed clubs access to their county players as much if not more than other top county managers in recent years.

This board has got terrible. Full of crying and yapping and over dramatising everything. Just like other forms of social media I guess. The majority of people now on the Tyrone pages complain in at least 75 per cent of messages. There's been 2 full rounds of club games and plenty of underage games with very little talked about them. The county players and management give an awful lot to the county and don't deserve half the crap they get.

This is the problem. Its not up to him to allow players to play for their clubs. It should be the other way round. If it wasnt for the clubs in the country there would be no county team and Harte wouldnt have a position. You have always defended Harte, but even you at this stage must start seeing the normal club players gripe here. Ive stated before i couldnt care less if Tyrone never win another All Ireland, i would far rather my club win an Oneill cup. Why is it yapping? Is it because our opinions dont match yours?
