We are where we are because we deserve to be there. Weíve not been consistent enough to get out of div 4. Thereís no point in pinning blame on players or management.

Gaelfast may work and over time start producing results, I certainly hope it does as another poster said, weíve not been competitive enough at minor and Un21s. Clearly there is an argument that not enough of our lads are playing college football, Lenny canít change that. Heís played the hand heís been dealt. I agree with taking back a few of the older hands to help the cause this season and it worked to a certain extent.

Instead of spouting on here about clubs and things that donít concern you, why not out your shoulder to the wheel and help.
IVe been coaching kids for 20 plus years - dicussion boards are for spouting - the clue is in the name...discussion!

A question for you, in all your time coaching have you produced one senior intercounty player? remember be honest.
Yes 2 for over the years - noT a big figure but a contribution since you asked

surely if you cant get promotion after 3 tries you resign and u haVe given it your best shot ............

I wouldnít be so tough on the players. Weíll need some of them next year
I mean the manager of course - no blame on hiM but after 3 years give someone else a go - Lennie is a good antrim gael

I blame the county board, management, players and whoever else I can think of.

Itís over, we canít go back. Letís focus on the championship.

Whilst I agree apportioning blame will not solve anything if we do not learn from what is keeping us in Div 4 then there is no point in even thinking about championship! As Carl Sagan said to understand the present and plan for the future we must understand our past
GAelfast have been researching all that for 2/3 years now so they should have all that soon...and maybe a plan :o :o :o

Not to impressed with statement, trying to suggest Antrim are complicit in it as well for not agreeing to a neutral venue. The bit that sticks out for me is the reference to Northern Ireland instead of Ulster. West brit language. Do they not realise the GAA is a 32 county association.
The National Draw is now for 26 counties also.. Are we being ostracised again
Take it down from the mast. Havenít even The wit to change the name of it

Can I ask those who support the cessation of all activities - why?

I understand Covid is on the rise, but to date there has been no linkage between outdoor participation in sport to the transmission of the virus.  Ergo cancelling sport will have no beneficial impact on the reduction of the spread!

Stopping youth sport will have a significant detrimental impact on the physical, social & emotional well being of our children.  Make no mistake, the season is over, for many children GAA would be the only structured physical activity they would get at this time of the year.

In my mind this was purely a PR move to counter the negative publicity generated recently.  Everyone knew the problem was the celebrations not the sport but out with the bath water went baby and all.
Are you saying Steven Nolan is the NEw fixtures runai? ;D

Dry your eyes.

So the u12 team looking forward to their championship Final donít get playing it b cos adults canít behave ! Blanket bans are lazy and punish the Innocent
Bronco why do you give out about ďunprovoked abuseĒ on the Man Utd thread and then engage in unprovoked abuse on this thread?
A soccer mam i should have known. The GAA was right to call a halt with the scenes. Then They should have asked all boards what chmapionships they had left to play and then make a decision - this was knee jerk and lazy
