You know when people say things like, "This would never happen if a woman was running the country/banks etc."?
Turns out women are just as capable of making an utter balls of things as men are.


and guess what? us men are the problem according to alot of women,apparently this wouldnt happen in mens gaa!!! the ignorance of some women on this topic is staggering and they have a really big chip on there shoulder... build a f**king bridge and get over it... errrr

In fairness if you'd been oppressed for 8000 years you'd have a fair chip on your shoulder too.

We've got enough of a chip on our shoulder about being oppressed by England for 800 sodding years..


aye i know what your saying...if it wasnt for that b**tard cromwell our club would have won the championship by now!!!

General discussion / Re: The Milk Cup?
« on: July 29, 2015, 04:02:35 PM »
i am a father of two boys who both play soccer and one is playing this week in the milk cup and both played in last weeks foyle cup,Gaelic football is the number one choice with the boys and of course myself but soccer is very quickly catching up in popularity and the simple reason is organisation.In Gaa underage in derry you are not sure from one week to the next if and when you play,one of our best club minor teams has played something like 4 or 5 matches all year!! and dont get me started the effect of this negative crap that's being played by county teams is having.
My kids are guaranteed a match every Saturday rain hail or shine,the refs are very good (underage refs in Derry are desperate) and always turn up,if a match is scheduled for 2pm it will start at 2pm,not 2.10,2.20 ....We may gripe about the coverage it gets but they have earned that by how well it is organised and promoted,IMO the Gaa in some counties take for granted they are the top sport in there particular county but eventually this attitude will have a serious detriment on playing numbers in the future.

I see glen have conceded there last two minor league matches,this carry on of glen not fielding when it doesn't suit them is getting beyond a joke at this stage,surely this issue has to be addressed by the county board...I really hope they get the beatings they deserve in the championship ,no hiding place for them there

GAA Discussion / Re: Ó Sé - A legacy.

They're saving that for Spillane - A Legacy.

Ironically I usually forget just how much of an all-time great Pateen is with all the shite he talks. A bit like Paudi (not saying he talked shite but y'know) he'll only get proper recognition like this when he's gone.

You'd imagine there is a whole generation (if not two) out there who have no real understanding of how good a footballer Spillane actually was - no-one under the age of 30 probably ever saw him play a game - instead he's one of the lads on the telly who talks nonsense. O'Rourke is in the same boat given they are around the same vintage and Brolly is probably the same for folk under 20.

You could up that age for Spillane by about 5 or 10 years as im 30 and I don't remember him playing at all.
Brolly was around when I was in Primary school..

No offense to O'Rouke and brolly,great footballers but not in the same league as spillane,he was something else in full flight,he basically beat tyrone on his own in 86 and by that stage he was well past his best.

The news about young Johnston is terrible and i wish the lad a speedy recovery but something that hasnt been mentioned much is the fact in how he was treated...the ref when over to him to more or less tell him to get up and restarted the game!! the lad was in obvious pain yet the ref saw fit to do this...also no sign of a strecher,the doc and physio had to carry him off and they had difficulty doing this,unbelievable in this day and age...would this have happened if it was a dublin player?? no chance

Meanwhile, the Ulster Council has rejected media reports that there was no stretcher available at Clones last Saturday night to ferry Kevin Johnston off the pitch. Johnston went down injured but the play continued and the Derry medical team took the decision to carry him off the pitch rather than wait for a stretcher.

Ulster Council PRO John Connolly said: “There’s a stretcher at the ground and if the Derry doctor had requested a stretcher out on the pitch the Order of Malta was there operating and they’re always equipped with a stretcher.”

it was very clear to see the doctor/physio were signaling to the sideline for assistance,the bloody physio was unable to carry him....and why did the ref continue with the play if a fella had to be carried off? disgrace if you ask me

Just heard this evening that our very well paid member of the county board is responsible for the on/off farce of this weeks fixtures...county board called them off and you know who went on a power trip and put them on again because he wasn't consulted!!!....our club fixtures will only get worse unless this clown is kicked down the road.

Not sensitive at all. I know Ballinderrys recent success came after massive success at youth level. My point is I remember them winning championships when they had poor underage.

I also remember Bellaghy and Lavey winning senior championships without much underage success.

Suppose that's the challenge for Magherafelt, with all these teams playing in 'A' leagues. I still reckon Ballinderry will win more senior championships in the next 20 years than Magherafelt will.

I totally agree,i have said it in the past,we have always had decent underage but never transferred it to senior with one exception....as i say the ballinderrys,laveys and bellaghys of this world will always produce championships and it comes in cycles while the rest of us hope for one or two in our lifetime

what is your club by the way?

Cockahoop, don't understand the digs about Ballinderrys underage at present. I'm old enough to remember when they had poor underage in the past, however I'm struggling to remember a year in the last 30 / 40 were they were not genuine contenders for a senior championship.

Magherafelt on the other hand, seem to be 'building' these underage teams to win a senior championship for 30 years now. The Eifel Tower was built quicker for f*@k sake.

I have crossed paths many times with the Shamrocks, but respect them and like how they play the game.

ah DERRYSFINEST  theres no bigger fan of ballinderry from a neutral point than myself,im only messing with that clown scally...dont be so sensitive!!
