Jim 'my community' Wilson.  He's hard to listen to. Gets angry at hello.

What is his actual job? Why does he get some much airtime???

A lot of the old sectarianism still pervades the BBC. Nolan's indulgence of Jamie Bryson, Jim Allister, Jim Wilson, Nelson McCausland and the likes being a prime example. His show is like a sectarian version of Jerry Springer aimed at setting people off against each other. It relies on sensationalism and whipping poeple into a frenzy for the purposes of ratings. Gutter journalism which appeals to the lowest common denominator. In a divided society that we live in, his only loyalty is to his own pocket.
He was actually on the show this morning complaining how the BBC never contact him anymore to come on to shows lol

That is because you are an idiot Jim!

Tickets were easy to get hold of on Sunday around Croke Park. I know of some which were  sold at less than face value as they were afraid of not shifting them at all.

Warns my heart

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

Rumours now going around that four players have opted out of the panel for the foreseeable. How you opt out in off season I'm not sure what the process is.

Heard N Sludden, K Coney, C McCann and C.Grugan had notified management of their intention to sit out the 2020 season........

In August???

You can call me a wum or whatever doesn't bother me.
This is the truth as I see it. Harte has installed a band of loyal supporters on the county board. He has refused to be scrutinised by the largest media broadcaster in Ireland. His own club mates now sponsor the Tyrone setup. Numerous county players are refusing to play for him. The whole thing stinks from top to bottom. We've nothing to lose by ousting the Harte Mafia and everything to gain. We should stretch every sinew for freedom.



Completely on the fence in relation to Harte atm. But humour me, name the county players that are refusing to playe for him/should be involved with Tyrone.

Wonder this myself. The people who make this claim don't go to many club games in Tyrone I think.

He saved you from painting sheep and getting hammered by Dublin.

Nothing, nothing like the buzz in the run up to an all Ireland final. You must have forgotten what it's like it's been that long.

You won't be buzzing anytime soon.

I'll probably have buzzed several times before you ever will again.

Deegan did all he could to keep Tyrone in the game despite them being bang average, the corner back should have been sent off for that reckless high tackle on the Kerry goalkeeper but Deegan again helped Tyrone here.

A high tackle is a yellow card, not a red. Back to school!

All referees were advised to issue red cards for high reckless tackles this year,  back to school for you more like, there is no lengths Tymonies go to convince themselves they are still relevant.

The referees must have missed the memo then, didn't see one red card for a high tackle all year.
Not sure what the second part of your statement refers to to be honest.

FFS i wanted My county to win as much as the last man such a whinging match about getting treatment, Meyler done the same thing on Sean ”.Se the full game,happens in every game.... we beat ourselves by not showing up in the second half!!

I'm sure Harte takes more abuse in club football week in week out than he did in that game against Kerry. Watching it live you could see the thing unfold. In fairness, at the time, I thought Deegan would get involved (not to give out a card but have a word). When that didn't happen it was up to Harte to stand up for himself.  He didnt. Harte continues to jog forward allowing O'Sullivan to keep pushing him back. At no point did he give O'Sullivan something to think about.. complete change of direction, 10/15yrd sprint, etc.. Harte is clearly more physically imposing than O'Sullivan, yet he allowed the smaller man to bully him all day.
Also where was Harte's teammate's? If this was happening to a Tyrone player in the noughties, it's guaranteed he would be softened in the next tackle or the next time he was in possession, (not with a dirty punch) but Gormley, Hughes, McMahon would ensure that sort of behaviour wouldn't go unpunished.

Thought the same myself watching it back. The tactic seemed to be to keep running into o Sullivan to try to garner sympathy from the referee. It wasn't coming, he should have ran straight through him. Imagine horse or gormley back in the day. O Sullivan wouldn't have got away with it.

Noticed a great moment from mcshane near the end of the first half. Caught the ball and before turning to score he has the hand up in foley/osullivans(?) chest pushing him away before he got on him. No nonsense. Proper order.

What are peopleís feelings on soft play areas? I feckin hate them. Currently at one with my Mrs and 6 and 3 year old and the place is mayhem. Weíre taking turns going in and out to check if the kids are ok but the majority of kids are absolutely feral. Most parents donít seem bothered as long as they fill their faces with coffee and bringing the 12 and 13 year old brothers and sisters to sprint around doesnít help. The worst thing is that my kids love it.  :-\

Haven't been in one in 25 years. Probably wouldn't enjoy it was much now as I did then...

It's ironic that this tyrone team are labelled as cycnical and nasty when in actual fact they are too nice. The Tyrone team of old would not have allowed peter harte to be treated that way.

Aside from the questions around skill level and side line tactics I think this tyrone team are too nice and soft. They need a bit more venom in them to stand up to teams when all this off the  ball stuff goes on.

My big concern is that majority of players bar a few care  more about their image and tan rather than getting stuck in when a game is in the balance. The physical strength is certainly there just a lack of will to use it.

You could never imagine caveman,mulgrew, O'Neill or any member of the old tyrone team being bullied all day off the ball like peter was.

No amount of silky skill or tactics will cover that up.

Freudian slip?? :P
