Thatís a nice jersey. Along with the Monaghan one itís a real tidy jersey. Look forward to seeing the new Armagh jersey, theyíll probably model it on the Dublin design  ::)

Hope the Armagh one is that Galway one but in orange

Semi Finals are a double header in Omagh on Sunday 18th

Eoghan Rua (Doire) v Scotstown (MuineachŠn) 1.30pm
Crossmaglen (Ard Mhacha) v Gaoth Dobhair (Dķn na nGall) 3.30pm
Crossmaglen (Ard Mhacha) v Gaoth Dobhair (Dķn na nGall) should be a good match
Didn't Cross beat Scotstown in the ulster final  a few years ago ?

2015 I think

Was behind the nets on Saturday night and the young kid was being actively encouraged by his Da to throw the balls back on just before the Cross kickout.
When a steward came over the Da took out his phone and started recording the steward. At half time the kid took a black kit bag full of balls down to the other end and the Da followed.
Petey Donnelly is just a superb keeper. The Cross keeper is not.
Young ONeill hit a point in second half and it must have started out 10/15 yards wide but he judged the wind to perfection.
Our latest All Star's antics were an embarassment.
The Island will know this was won they could have won if they had just played some football.

Tattyreagh hammered St Peters by 1 point. Far better team. Intermediate football in Armagh must be poor if this is the best they have.

On Sunday Scotstown should have been home and hosed but in the end were hanging on for dear life. Strange game.
From where I was it looked a penalty but ref obviously had a better view.
Beggan was like an outfield player at times and his place kicking was fantastic but he seems to love the attention. Would do well to watch back the AISF to keep his feet on the ground

Tattyreagh hammered St Peters by a point? You must have watched a different game. Granted St Peters didnít play that well but they could easily be looking forward to an Ulster Semi had they not missed two easy frees. And thatís not to mention some of their poor shooting

Tattyreagh cut their defence open everytime they went on the attack. Massive difference in how good the forwards were for each team.

Is that big midfielder Findon the guy that was playing for Armagh seniors a few years back? Has he been injured or what happened to him as havent heard of him recently?
Agreed St Peters forwards didnít have their best day. It is yeah he didnít have a good game at all on Saturday

Coalisland probably seen the young cross ones throwing the ball onto the field before the Ballymacnab kick outs in the Armagh final. Well directed by adult supervision also.

Didnít happen

Was it a Coalisland minor who came off the bench and kicked two wonder scores off the outside of the boot?

Dunno about Coalisland but a young cross lad came on int he final and scored two super points

Cluxton had a very bad spell during the first half of the 2017 All Ireland final, think Mayo won 5 of his kickouts.

Got rattled during the first half of the Galway game too, made a mistake for the goal and followed it straight up with a poor kickout where Galway should have scored a goal; Comer had his shot saved when he should have passed to Heaney who'd have had an open goal.

Shane Walsh is the player who's certainly the most hard done by, there's no way Ryan McHugh & Ian Burke deserved one ahead of him.

He did save the shot tho. He also saved a penalty during this time. I still think Beggan was the right choice tho

Joe will be back on Crossmaglen band wagon. He was at Athletic Grounds today to see a great game of football with 1 goal and 39 points scored with only 5 from placed balls. Nothing wrong with football if coaches encourage players to play in a progressive manner.

He seemed to enjoy it alright. Was a very good game

On reflection, the ban fro next year's championship is quite lenient. Neither team would be serious contenders, nor be expected to progress far. With the back door, it's a loss of 2-3 games at most

My take also. Very lenient. Ban both clubs from every competition for the maximum period permitted. And ban identifiable individuals for the same length of time.

Very easy to do with few county men involved. (And, therein lies the real issue).

BTW, same punishment with recent rows in other counties, including my own.

Do the current rules allow this?

If they don't, they should be amended to do so. The Harps and RGU folk would think several times before jumping the wire again.

I donít doubt it. But would the county board get away with it? Didnít the GAA basically make up a rule for TMcCann after hair gate and that didnít stick?

Pbat well done on 100 days. I remember that milestone. Iím 1000 days ahead of you and itís one day at a time. I was overwhelmed when I gave up. How can I go the rest of my life without booze. After a while it dawned on me. I donít have to. I just have to go the rest of the day without it. When I got up the next day it was the same thing. A bit of a cliche but for me it works

I should add to my post too that, i don't feel i have a bad relationship with drink at all. I enjoy a good lash at it from time to time but i certainly don't crave it, and can easily do without it for extended period of times.  During those periods, i don't miss it either.  It's definitely a social thing for me.  Maybe it is unhealthy that my relationship with friends still centres around meeting up for a feed of pints and a bit of banter once every few months but i suppose i don't see it that way.

I was the opposite. I didnít have a good relationship with it at all. I donít have any now but when I drank it was a terrible relationship. Alcohol didnít have a hold on me in my day to day life but when I drank it had a vice like grip on me. I drank the bit out at uni. It it probably went to the next step when I worked in a local bar - you probably know it. Thankfully those days are gone and I havenít looked back. Can never be too complacent tho

I pointed out MMA has no standard it won't go below. You equated it to Tyson's antics in boxing. I agree it's nothing to do with Gaelic Football and I never said it was. You somehow went down that tangent.

Although one thing GAA and UFC has in common is the fact athletes in both sports refuse to accept responsibility for their actions

I may have picked you up wrong when you said Ďyour sportí. I wasnít equating. I was giving an example to show it isnít just McGregor and/or UFC where such depths are reached
