Tyrone bate them in 2001? in Ulster and then Derry bate them in the quarters.  That comparison on the tohill era v the cavanagh era would be interesting

If you want to compare the two teams then compare them during the career of their talisman and to me you have 2 long serving lads representing the two eras with a slight met hence at the end.
Take Sean Cavanaghs career record
Against Derry and tohills against Tyrone and see which team had the higher win percentage. Tohill was the embodiment of the Derry era and Cavanagh the Tyrone era both their highs and lows. Donít know what the result will be but if someone does this Iím prepared to accept the results.

Itís the only team for Derry so I get the importance of making them continuously relevant.. if your logic is factual comparisons go through the whole thing.. How did their Ulster championship comparisons go as well/ mc Kenna cup? All stars etc?
That down game 94 done more for Derry football than they actually realise. For half an hour Derry actually played football and not the dour crap associated with the 93 season. Donít forget they beat a cork team there by accident whose sell by date was 1990 in the final.

What is shocking about that interview is the biggest fake news in the history of the GAA. Pure balder dash that is being pedalled as fact or that that Derry team were destined for 2 or 3 sam maguires. 1/ the county didnít and would never have had the togetherness to hold it together for more than a few months ever without killing one another.. rows were always bubbling - itís just how much weight you put on each one.  2/ from the time there were tales of mad fighting among players as well for all sorts of reasons- easy to blame Mickey Moran for that auld caper perhaps Joe?
That Derry team had  2 great corner backs/ a brilliant 6 a super
Midfield - well tohill had a shocker In the game that lost their title and 2 scoring forwards Brolly And Gormley. Nothing exceptional  about the group but the achievement in winning 1 all Ireland was a great feat for them. It will probably  never happen again for them instead of looking back derry football now needs to look forward..... to the 50 year anniversary. 
3/ Another point I would make is that the hateful blaming  of Moran dosent take away from the fact that against down as holders having the game of his life and a bit of rough moves on to him he stopped playing.. and This great Derry team lost. They were very easy to figure out... This was a great Derry team but down were better and won 2 and no doubt had plenty of tensions to manage also, but compared to the quality of Armagh and Tyrone in the noughties they were not a great team. To sum it up they were a great league team who got it together to win a championship but Coleman or no Coleman row they would not have won any more. That is fact.
4/ a final pick up from the interview is that joe had broken his arm in 1995. He was one of the 2 scoring forwards they had so itís not mickeys fault he had a broken arm. Yet Mickey gets the blame. Jody Gormley marked tohill out of it in 95. That was 2 years in a row that he had a poor day out at his peak. Jody Gormley should not have been for to lace tohills boots... why? Happened again too.
5/ the 90s was an unforgettable glorious era for Ulster football and both Donegal and Derry had their year out of it, but down won 2. They were the best team from Ulster during this period. Ulster team of the decade in my eyes. If joe thinks a One time team like Derry were great then he must have some-admiration for Mickey Harteís Tyrone team of the noughties.....

I had hoped Burns would be more radical on funding and fixtures but maybe thatís the game you have to play. Disappointed that he didnít get in.

Iíd agree with Oneill - very strange refereeing. Iím sure for both teams. Tyrone were poor up front until canavan gave them purpose. Just got over the line. But need a better forward plan. Thought the half backs were superb.

I have to say. Fair play to these lads and management for putting these results together. We know where we probably are and may struggle, but anybody that went to some awful div 3 games with Tyrone in the 80s would know that there is still a bating of any county team and Tyrone are trying hard and at this stage of the season progressing fine. Fair play to the Conall Mc Cannís and the Ben o Donnells. Reading on here ye would wonder why they bother sometimes. Give credit to the effort.

This was a shocker and as much as I dislike the corporate infiltration of the GPA this is where a players body can excell. The sad thing is how devoted the lad was to playing for his county and the lack of responsibility taken by Donegal.

What would the rugby guys need to give to buy put their lease to rent it back to them unless it was hugely profitably and quick returning for them to do so in which case they are taking full gate receipts and seat incomes which are possibly partially spent already. How many games do Ireland play there a year 4or 5? Dosent add up without John Delaneys calculator... rugby has its own needs to look after. A longer term plan is that The fai needs to invest in a soccer team to compete in England Dublin wild rovers Fc. Work it into the prem over the next 10 years and put a professional 25 games a year in theat stadium. A professional outlet for Irish players based in Ireland keeping money at home. Unfortunately their fan base are spending all their money in England and Scotland. Everything else is a bailout with limited chance of return. 5 semi pro teams  feeding into the team. Basically and Ireland club team (not unlike the Provincial rugby model, but pro football in England or any European league of attraction. Has any other national football model went bust before?

That 91 win was famous for canavan scoring 15 points. The Armagh fans clapped and cheered him off the field..
