Good highlights of yesterday's matches on the BBC website. Mark Sidebottom critical of both referees during the commentary.

Out of all the good points yesterday, Sidebottom/BBC had to include the incident with Watson and the corner back.

Two very enjoyable games, I thought Cushendall had the beating of St Johns when the half time whistle blew. St Johns took their chances from placed balls and fair play.

I thought Dunloy were well worth their victory.
If you were Jamie Bryson you would think there's a bit of editorial direction to do so but I think its just him, as a wee bit of controversy gets more hits and raises his own profile. Thats the media game. Stick to the Saffron Gael for the real story.


Ah come on Sidebottom isnít one for raising his own profile in fairness, doesent have Twitter or Facebook profiles as far as I know and heís well enough known at this stage in Gaa circles.

Have you ever been at a Gala dinner with him as MC?

Thought St. John's got a few handy frees. The thing with Watson and the corner back was a bit of handbags. Nothing in it worth talking about. He can still take a score when he gets a chance. Pity the other Loughgiel forwards didn't support him. Dunloy had a far better spread of scores and more options up front and that was the difference.

A few handy frees? Quite alot...

Watson still has it surely..
Was trying to be diplomatic... But yeah, quite a lot.

No point being diplomatic.. I'd love to see a re run and do a free count.

heard 2 or 3 different venues on the way home for that replay. between colaiste feirste, Ballymena for a weds night and then our own pitch this weekend.

Either way St johns will yet again be kicking themselves they didn't get it over the line. Fair play to Cdall as they looked dead and buried but they got the draw at the end. It was a game that went one way and then back again esp in the first half. Cdall were well in control and then St Johns hit 6 unanswered scores to get back in it again.

As for our game, thank god its over. I swear you dont need anymore games like that in a season lol

i wont lie, i was very quietly confident we would get the job done this time. last year was a real learning curve for our team and Lgiel taught them a lesson that day. It was made harder work than we needed to at the end up as with 4 points to the good we should of seen that game out. But fair dues to Lgiel, they could of got a goal at the end up.

a tough game and a good contest between the teams.

Brendan McTaggart seems to think its next Sunday at 1pm in Dunloy.

I'd go a step further. The county should allocate a sizeable annual contribution to Saffron Gael..in effect they have a private firm doing their PR and Marketing, and not only that, do it exceptionally well. They're certainly not making money out of the venture atm, and need all the support possible to make this sustainable.

The biggest value is the promotion of our games to the next generation. How can you put a price on this??

Youíve never made a more sensible point BS. Curly, Paddy & the crew do a fantastic job.

An All NA IHC final and 2 Cushendall men against each other on the sideline to.

You stirring  ;D

I actually do see this from St Johns point of view too Hardstation. We are all Gaels and there are many very reasonable St Johns folk I hold high esteem who deserve their case to be heard too... As an idea off the top of my head....what about Ahoghill on FRIDAY  night.

Our pitch could hold the St Johns v Dall hurling semi under lights NEXT WED night.

And Moneyglass v Ahoghill div one relegation playoff match originally down for tomorrow night at our pitch could go ahead as planned.

Would this not be a better compromise???

But then the Dall are being brought into this also. What happens if theyíve lads away and due home this weekend?

Is there any reason why it can't be in ahoghill

To appease St Johns. I can see their point of view also, 3 times out of the city in a week, 1 of those to the furtherest away pitch they can go to in the county. Takes a bit of fuel at 1.25/1.30 a litre. As another poster said, PG1s biggest game of the year and itís moved 24hours before due to county board.

i would presume this gives Portglenone extra motivation and I hope they win and slap it up the county. I wouldn't be hosting any more games for a long time the county will suffer if they were unable to use their facilities

How often do the county use their facilities?  Creggan, Ahoghill, Dunloy and Ballycastle seem to get a good turn. portglenone much??

5/6 so far this season alone.

Shambolic call from the county board.
