Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling
« on: January 24, 2020, 10:32:27 PM »
In Armagh we have reserves of a Wednesday night. Totally separate from where your senior team is. Itís split north/south. Top two from each play off for the league final. Championship is all county knock out. Eligibility for league is anyone who didnít start the previous senior match. Yes it includes county men but personally havenít seen it. Eligibility for championship is anyone who didnít play for senior team in championship. The clubs with big numbers field a second senior team in junior football. Not perfect but clubs who donít/canít field reserve teams donít bother and those who do are provided with some tangible structure. Still plenty of w/os and dnfs but again itís reserve football and will always be second fiddle

The Armagh system was ridiculed beyond reason by some of the Tyrone Clubs at both fixture meetings. I think Carrickmore called it a 'pub league'.
Itís f**king reserve football of course itís a pub league! Iíd say there are about ten decent reserve sides in Armagh and thatís being extremely generous

Too much of anything isnít going to be good for you. Fast food, energy drinks, nicotine, alcohol, weed, cocaine. Stupid arguing that cannabis is bad for you, because you know a chronic user who now lives as a hermit.

the army is a career path that attracts scumbags, so itís not unusual for members or former members to be involved in crime.

Seen the images. They seem to be taken/stolen from an Instagram page. Also a video going about of some young lad covered in blood but Iím led to believe thatís from a young fella stabbed few weeks ago unrelated to this feud

Hearing he was no angel. More than just a hood by all accounts. Iíve been trying to follow the jist of this feud on twitter. Apparently a certain criminal who recently got off on murder charges is main suspect. Thereís a video of him being punched after his release before Christmas and itís the ones videoing it who ended up chopped up.

Eh the RIC were immediate predecessors of the RUC, maybe worth researching their behaviour in Belfast in the 1920s just before they became the RUC

If in a United Ireland, Unionists wanted the  government to honour RUC men who lost their lives in the Troubles, or indeed the precursor to the RUC, the RIC - would it be okay to commemorate RIC then. SF do tell them they have nothing to fear in a United Ireland, all traditions, both sides of history welcome.
They are already honoured. There are statues and monuments to the RUC and UDR. There are British military memorials everywhere. Belfast city hall is like a British army museum. Various Councils see fit piss away hundreds of thousands of pounds on military circle jerks and trips to Flanders. What makes anyone think that in a united ireland this would change?

Maybes itís just me but county jerseys seem to be a bit boring. Bar a handful the rest are ruined by poor or lazy designs and stupid sponsor logos. Some club jerseys look well though. The Kilcoo one I have to say is pretty tidy

Are there many GAA players in Irish league these days? Whatís the big attraction? Apart from personal preference, is it less strenuous training/lifestyle? I donít see the big draw for an inter county player to pack it in to go and play against a bunch of shite teams in places like Larne and carrick. And coleraine 🤮
