Looks like Cora has little or nothing substantial to add to her already light weight grievances. They tried to pull a quick one and it back fired spectacularly.  This was added to by the county board digging their heals in.

The problem with last nights show was it had all the usual guests except they were being interviewed in London. Was a great opportunity to have a few  'New' guests in. Topics like Brexit were begging to be discussed last night.

GAA Discussion / Gael Londin CLG and London Irish RFC
« on: October 12, 2018, 07:32:02 PM »
Just seen a small piece on Nationwide on RTE about Gael Londin CLG and London Irish RFC. Full credit to London Irish Rugby for letting Gaelic in over the Summer! Has to be one of the heart warming partnerships between the two different Codes.

Well done to all!

Why cant they walk away again? Of course they can. Football is not compulsory.

Because they more than likely won't be there to walk away!

You can't walk away again from something if you are no longer part of it!

Simple!

Looks like this fiasco has came to the most likely conclusion. I doubt the Mayo LGFA County Board ever thought they could hold onto the bans. Appealing it just prolonged the inconvenience for Carnacon. Players will think again about jumping ship from a Mayo Ladies team or trying to control its running's. A clear message of zero tolerance has been sent out. For those who have controlled it there will more than likely be no return. In the process they may have dragged a few innocent by-standers into the same situation.

The provocative act by the Mayo LGFA of banning Carnacon for a year, has badly backfired on them in my opinion. They have been knocked back at every turn. I don't know how you can see any positive side to it.
They really made fools of themselves , where do they go from here , who would trust them now to make a rational decision ?

I disagree! Do you think Carnacon (or any other club) will try that stunt again next year? Do you think that the Mayo LGFA County Board have set the tone for the future?

For 8 players from one club to walk away from the county squad a few days before a Championship match can not be condoned.

Carnacon thought they could bully this situation but got a bucket load of their own medicine.

By the way what has happened to Coras Book?

You might also find that next year the county team could be short a few of its regular starters though

Thems the casualties of war!

Cross had 3 adult football teams what seems like not that long ago. Is it 2 teams now?

Yeah, they won the Junior Championship with their 'B' Team in 2006.

Mayo ladies county board are set to appeal the leniency of the suspensions given to eight Carnacon players by the LGFAs National Appeals Committee.
The All-Ireland champions will play Moy Davitts on Sunday for a place in the county final with their eight suspended players set to see four-week bans over apparent player welfare issues expire on Friday.
Last night the board voted 27-5 in favour of an appeal to the perceived leniency of the suspensions handed down. The appeal is expected to happen tonight.


Seems this story hasn't run its course yet.

Spiteful decision.
It has been spiteful from the get go. The county board (made up of 32 people) are just club delegates who are completely jealous and fed up with the same team winning everything.
Any excuse really.

Looks like that at this stage.
Luckily the Carnacon players stood tall in the Summer and put county before personal grievances a couple of days before a Championship match.
And kept quiet on the national media as per the confidentiality agreement.
Not in any way putting dangerous quotes out there for the general public to make of it what they want.

By the way this is not something that has happened out of no where in the past 4 months. There has been form. We had a situation in 2010 from i suspect the same culprits?

They got away with it then as the Mayo LGFA County Board or anyone was strong enough to take them on.

What happened in 2010?

http://www.mayonews.ie/sports/10285-mayo-ladies-hunting-for-a-new-manager

''This saga began in May when the Mayo Ladies GAA Board controversially withdrew their team from the Connacht championship, citing an inability to find a replacement for manager Pat Costello, who resigned after the National League, alleging that some players had undermined his authority.''


''An investigation is currently ongoing into what brought this situation to a head in the first place. Ladies GAA officials from Croke Park are believed to be in the process of speaking with a number of former Mayo managers and players in an effort to discover why the county has had such a high turnover of management in recent years. ''

Not really. Whats the point of the punishment if Carnacon are let run down the clock and not have to serve any of it? It was bizarre that the game was postponed on the first place.

They've already played a round robin game v Castlebar Mitchels without the 8! They also won the game handy! Moy Davitts would be a different prospect!

Yeah, the Mayo LGFA County Board are really sending a stern message to Carnacon. There is no love lost at this stage.

General discussion / Re: The Official UFC Thread
« on: October 09, 2018, 11:04:36 AM »
Agree with Syf here to a point with regards to the UFC needing names to sell fights rather than the best MMA exponents.

If all they are interested in is making money then they need to suspend/ban Khabib for as long as possible. He is and will be completely dominant in this division and no one will touch him. However we wont make the money for the company that other fighters can clearly make. He doesnt sell PPV. Its pretty simple.

McGregor is a good fighter and a great promoter and he will bring the cash to the company. It is in their interests to keep him at the top of the pile

So instead of getting the best in the sport to the front they should get the best promoters to the front.

It then is no longer a sport!

It was the same for the GAA! When the Leinster final was between Westmeath and Laois in 2004, The Stadium was only half full. The GAA wanted Dublin in Leinster finals to ensure high gates. The difference here was they could influence the Dublin product with money.
