Jesus could you all not quote every conversation?

I think Iím showing my age but had to unfollow the Antrim GAA social media accounts. Worse than my wee brother and sister on a night out.
Yeah I know some people think your man Sean Murray is some sort of social media guru but the twitter feed is a pain in the hole. Iím not on Facebook but Bannside reckons the Facebook page is the best in Ireland  ???

They dont seem to realise sometimes less is more

At least have the respect to get his name right. Itís Sean Kelly

Aye thatís what I meant to type, donít shite yourself. Didnít realise he was royalty

Heís doing a decent job, fair play to him. Maybe you should take a leaf out of his book and be a bit nicer to people.

We are all entitled to our opinions

Wind your neck in. The guy is a brilliant PRO and an asset to the county. Bore off if you don't like it.

RE: League positions

If two teams are on equal points, it goes to head to heads.
If three teams are on equal points, head to heads go out the window and it comes down to points difference.

I laugh like mad when the camera zooms in at the underdog's management on the sideline letting on they are plotting some sort of tactic!!

Blow it up ref

Just watched the replay of the second goal. Passes were good.

Underdogs are rubbish tbh. This is Dublin's 3rd string so to say that they aren't doing any worse than most county teams I think is unfair.

Any of the top county teams would hammer this Dublin team. Most mid range counties would stuff them too I think. Maybe your Antrims or Leitrims would be closer but I think they'd be doing much much better against this Dublin 15.

Underdogs number 5 not exactly wanting the ball there...

Well this is pretty depressing!!

Load of talk of this being the greatest team of all time acting as some sort of motivation and justification for the stuffing at the same time.

I think it's all a bit cringey

Agree with top of Div 2/bottom of Div 1 being not far apart but that leaves about 5 or 6 playing against each other for a full year.

Top of Div 2 changes a bit aswell from year to year. I'd say leave Div 1 alone as well as Div 2. Serve your time in Div 3 if you are there if you have higher aspirations but if you're weak then that's the place for you.

But agree 100% with Hardstation. You need to know what you're playing for at the start of the year without any sneaky surprised. I won a Div 2 hurling league medal one year and we didnt go up due to Ballycastle tinkering with the leagues and it robbed me of playing Div 1 hurling. Wasn't fair.

Plus as you say it cuts the crap of people wanting to eat their undeserved cake.

I seem to recall that a motion was passed a few years ago that league structures passed had to remain in place for 2 years and also that any changes proposed would have a one year delay added to them to avoid exactly clubs chopping and changing to suit themselves.

I would leave well alone. Division 1 is where it should be at. Division 2 is as competitive as ever. Division 3 is what it is unfortunately. A couple of teams maybe capable of playing Division 2 and Intermediate but fairly weak if we're all honest. It's up to those clubs to get up to a good standard. I don't think we are able to legislate them into being better.

Clubs like LLL, Pearses etc will probably always be in the bottom tiers. ODs made the step up last year and are on -2 points for the year. St Paul's need to take their medicine.

I'm sure St Paul's are already plotting and scheming about changing league formats given their relegation to Division 3. Isnt that how the hurling leagues were messed up a few years ago into a 19 team Division 3 because of their 'proud hurling tradition'?

Jesus, son. Your wife must have shouted at you this morning fairly bad. It really isn't bothering me as much as you obviously think it is. I drive all the time to championship games and where they are at won't stop me travelling to them. Obviously I'd prefer for once to see a big game in Belfast and not a qualifying forgone conclusion as were the games that you suggested.

Look don't let me annoy you mucker. I'm just a chipeater with an opinion on a discussion board that relies on people's opinions.

See you Sunday. NEA

Iím a Belfast Gael and couldnít agree more.

No club in Belfast has good enough parking facilities outside Corrigan.

If the drive is too much of a put off then donít go! Clearly doesnít mean enough to ya.

Wanting to bring my kid to see a senior championship game in Belfast without having to drive 80 mile round trip journeys is now called having an agenda.

Wind your neck in, angry boy.

80 mile round trip not worth it? Us down the country ran to Casement several times every season. It was a pleasure to do it. It's motorway from Belfast until about 10 miles out of Ballycastle, 2 out of Dunloy. If Ballycastle is too long for you to travel to a senior semi final/ Minor final double header then stay at home. There were plenty of senior championship games in Belfast this year. Rossa V St. Johns, Sarsfields V Cushendall, St. Johns V Ballycastle. But keep stamping your feet like a spoilt child there. Never worry about there being no suitable venues in Belfast to host the game, we'll hurl up and down the Andersonstown Road so you don't have to spend a 5er on red diesel.

I'd much prefer to talk about the great battle we witnessed today between two gallant teams tbh but since you mentioned it, I'll reply.

I was there today. If you hadve read my response to what you quoted I said it wouldn't stop me going and it didn't today. There it is in black and white. Again.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and agree that Ballycastle is best suited for the game as it is a great venue... And the weather helped today too. What I said was that it would be great to have a big game like that in Belfast for a change.

Hopefully that's things clarified.

St Johns gave it their all and knowing a lot of the players personally I really hope they (and Janty) keep at it going into next year as so many of the boys are very young and have huge potential. Would like to think they'll win one within 5 years and that would be amazing for Belfast and deserved for them for plugging away.

Fair play to Cushendall though. They weren't there to do St John's any favours and I love their grit and determination in big games like this. I would fancy them v Shamrocks based on nothing really. Should be. A great final.

I'm referring to the Limerick hurler who has a permanent piece of metal in his face because of a cowardly thug lining out on a hurling team.

The purpotrator should be handing himself into the cops never mind getting his club to fend for him.
