GAA Discussion / Re: List of things that Tyrone have never done

Been on the wrong end of a Nigel Pearson rant. Tyrone people are flexible enough to put their heads in the sand.

Ziggy doing a sterling job this morning locking needless threads.
Tyrone people are easily offended, like.

The most important thing here is that a shameless diver is protected from criticism.

Tiernan McCann has to get up in the morning. He's still flat out on the ground at the moment, though.

Monaghan's biggest problem was that they couldn't defend Tyrone's kickouts. Every time Monaghan chipped away at the Tyrone lead in the second half Morgan would pick out a man and Tyrone would basically waltz through for a shooting oppurtunity, most of which they took.

Beggan's misses from frees in the first half ironically reminded me of Morgan against Donegal in 2013.

Tyrone are used to winning in Croke Park in championship football. Monaghan are not and really let the occasion get to them.

Tyrone put in an excellent performance and it's such a shame their gutter behaviour left such a sour taste in the mouth.

Monaghan are no angels but there's a clear divide here in terms of blame. That was the most cynical performance I've seen in championhip football for the sheer shamelessness of it. Ironically Meyler, who was largely innocent, was the Tyrone player to suffer most. Cavanagh and Donnelly should have gone for black cards.

Tyrone will put it up to Kerry for 50 minutes but Kerry will win by about 6.
Tyrone's kick outs today were an art form, an actual template, both the short and long. In comparison Monaghan's were one track.
That had a primary effect on the outcome of the game.
Monaghan's problem in the last 1/4 was that they allowed themselves to be dragged down in reacting to the cynicism instead of doing their all to claw the lead back, that was a serious indiscipline. It annoys the feck out of me to see players more concerned about reacting to provocation than trying to set up a scoring opportunity as soon as possible.
Tyrone are just zoned into this closing down the game by any crude means possible, it's up to the opposition not to react and/or not to be so far behind after 50 minutes of the game.
Monaghan panicked from early on. They kept hitting aimless balls in towards McManus and Tyrone mopped it up. Either that or aimless shots on goal. I've been a big fan of Malachy O'Rourke as a coach up to now but Monaghan looked totally unprepared for falling behind. They just did not look like they had any plan.

Tyrone were 4th favourite to win Sam at the semifinal stage in '03. Ditto Armagh in 02, Galway in 98, Down in 91, etc.
Dublin were fourth favourites in 2013.

Will be great to see what a proper footballing team like Kerry will do to a team of cynical cheaters who can only win games by dishing out cheap blows on the opposition and getting opponents sent off, there is very little football ability in them, if there was all irelands for dark arts they would be going for 13 or 14 in a row

but that's the thing, there is football in them, they were excellent today and have been one of the most consistent teams in the country for 15 years. that's what makes it so disappointing when they revert to the crap.

Tony McCann shouldn't have went down like that and he should get a ban but there were 2 teams out there today.

Naw - not this time. It just won't cut it. Monaghan's problem was they just didn't know how to be as cynical

Monaghan's problem is they don't score enough. Same as ever. They have a template to win an Ulster Championship.

They have no template to win AI Titles.

They need to focus on underage and get winning them at that level first.

I don't necessarily disagree with that but it wasn't my point (its not a perfect formula either - look at cavan). I'm sick of watching football where the perpetrators are a few steps ahead  of the ref. That's Tyrone all over and Cavanagh in particular. Duffy never stood a chance

Look Tyrone have never been any different. At times they are pathetic in the way they drag the game through the mud. They truly can be a disgrace at times in the manner in which they drag the game to a base level typically seen in a Games of Thrones Episode.

But they have a brilliant manager and great development system which we ended up copying. They produce multi-adaptable , highly skilled and conditioned players in sufficient numbers to excel at inter county level. I genuinely admire them for that. When they have a weakness in an area of the pitch they put emphasis on it in the development system to ensure it doesn't happen again. That's why they are so good.

Unfortunately though they also teach some of their players to be scumbags. Why I don't know. But it's a pity because it allows everyone to forget how good some of their players are. But only they can change that

Scum is as scum does.

So where would be place Tyrone on the scum level then?

Presuming Directors of Genocide to be at the top, followed by murders, rapists, drug dealers, thieves, drunk drivers. Where would Tyrone fit in there?
Marginally below people who organise dog fights and give character witness statements for murderers but ahead of people who defend corrupt businessmen and advocate right-wing, misogynist political causes. Some of this may or may not be the same people, mind.

Meyler was hard done by with his black card.

Cavanagh and Donnelly should both have been black carded.

Cavanagh pointing to his shoulder after he clotheslined a Monaghan player was one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen.

 No exaggeration there then

;D
Nah, Tyrone would never do exaggeration, mate.

All Ireland is behind Kerry.

More heartache for the BBC.  The guy with the whitest teeth in the Olympics, Tom Daley comes 4th.

Edit:  Just beat me to it se!
Tom Daley has just announced he'll be partnering Tiernan McCann for Team GB in the synchronised diving in Rio next year. Good luck to both.

Carrying out abortions. Only on the pitch, though.

All the cliches about Ulster football are entirely justified after that. Tyrone supporters are complaining about "the children". You have a bunch of children playing for you.

I hope Kerry destroy you.

I was hoping you's hope that
Glad you're glad you've turned into the Glasgow Rangers of Gaelic football.

I believe our entire team is Catholic and hasnt went brankrupt
Nobody gives a shit about your religion, mate.

The fact is you have the most disliked team in Ireland and 31 counties will be against you in the semi-final. When you're playing Kerry, that's quite a feat.

You started on about Rangers, those 2 things are the only thing that i really know about that them
A third thing for you to know is that they're less disliked in the rest of Ireland than Tyrone are.

5. Informing people that a family member has been killed in a car crash and then making fun of them.
