Depends on the price. Bryant can't get open so anyone sensible won't pay too much for him. Still possibly a top RZ threat though.

Bryant turned down a three year with the Ravens because he wanted a one-year-and-prove-it deal so itís unlikely his asking price is going to be beyond the Browns or any team with cap space.

You were very vocal when there was an article in Herald quoting Dineen blaming the players for the 2014 U21 loss. Sorry if it seems a bit off when the Herald lays the blame on the players and not the management. If you were consistent you would have a problem with the balance of that article too. I always support the players and management no matter who is in charge and have renewed my gold membership for the 4th year in a row. I will support McStay next year as I have Carr, Maughan, Evans and plenty of other managers I found fault with. It doesn't mean I will not call it as it is and ask the hard questions our local press will never ask.

Theres a difference between the manager blaming the players and a local journalist blaming the players.

Well yes I know that. It's still the players that are getting thrown under the bus (no pun intended) for what clearly are management failings (eg our defensive structure) and a local media that appear afraid to rock the boat. Our county board issued press releases apologising to Mayo and Andy Morgan and another to plamŠs the Connacht Council. I await a defense of our players who do all this for nothing. I won't be buying the Ros Herald again. As for the other one, it's free and that is still to much.

Just because some have the good sense not to start throwing their toys out of the pram because weíre not at the level of the top two teams in the country it doesnít mean theyíre afraid of anyone. Best. Manager. In. 25 Years.

You have an agenda thatís been exposed for being totally self-serving for a while now. Whether you accept it or not itís you thatís producing the pointless propaganda and not Ian Cooney or anyone else.

Landry is just a nickel and dime possession receiver. Bryant is the sort of big physical wideout any team needs, crazy he hasnít caught on somewhere yet even despite a couple down seasons, heís extremely talented. Heís going to be on his best behaviour wherever he signs and itís not like he could make the Browns any worse than 0-16..

Before this era it would of been 96&97 .

All defeats in this era from 2013 on were gut wrenching , no other county will ever understand the pain . I'm a 40 yr old man but have no problem admitting in 2016 I actually broke down and cried coming out of hill16 with the rare Aul times blaring in my ears . Like I say it's impossible to explain the hurt to others ,it's simply unique to Mayo . Like Farr above I know now I'll never see a Mayo man lift Sam Maguire but the memories have been brilliant at the same time .

Cop on, itís a bit of fun of a slow Sunday. You sound like youíre writing for Willie Joeís bellend blog.

Has been confirmed that Stephen Rochford is staying on as Mayo manager.

No it hasn't - theres been no meeting between the CB and Rochford yet, Rochford has said he's staying for another year - different thing
Our buck announced that he's staying  in the "Down the Hatch News" before he was suspended.
No word from our (non) Co Board.
I see his apologist in the Ros Herald blames the players in his end of year State of the County team report.

Don't expect any criticism of the management from our local press.
Love the line the players "must ask themselves why they're shipping outrageous scorelines against the top teams."
I do hope the players ask themselves that question and send a note back to Mr. Cooney in the Herald and ask him to rephrase the question in a number of ways: why has the management not set up any discernible defensive structure after 3 years, why does the management persist with small light forwards as backs and why the hell is Cooney not asking McStay that question instead of the players.

It sucks when nearly everyone else in the county is against your ĎMcStay OUT!!í campaign, right?

Might be time to cut your loses and back the team and management.. even Gay isnít going around sounding off this year.

Anyone who doesnít subscribe to the fallacy of Roscommon being a county filled with talent being oppressed by a bad manager is an Ďapologistí. I do hope the players are a tad more accountable and circumspect than you are being in their steed. Everyone, management and players, share in our failings and our successes this year.

I can't understand why Conor McManus is rated to get an allstar. Good player and all, probably deserves a nomination, but well behind the likes of Clifford, Mannion, Murphy, Comer, Burke and Rock in my book. He was pretty poor yesterday bar his frees. Think he's just short of this level, which is not really an insult. The final gets too much sway in these things but at the moment I'd go for Clifford, Mannion, Burke in the FF line but that feels harsh on Comer and Murphy.

I think even with the last minute brain fart, Beggan should get keeper. Has been a real difference maker all season. Others I'd say are in the box seat with one game to go are Cooper, O'Connell, McCaffrey, Fenton, Cavanagh, Shane Walsh and Kilkenny. Perhaps this year with the Super 8's exposure it might be slightly lass Final-centric? Certainly should be anyway.

Pretty big statement to make Seanie.
Gets some super scores from play to go along with his free taking.

Given the amount of attention he gets from other teams, as they know take him out of it and you will beat Monaghan, it is pretty impressive what he returns each game

I wouldn't have McManus in my All Star team this year. Don't think he contributed all that much from play this year apart from the Kerry game, he's certainly learnt how to win a soft free this year too. He's been an exceptional forward for a long time and probably the best inside forward the last 5 years but he's not hit the heights of previous years.

McManus should be the first name on the All-Star team. Monaghan's system really only works with him there either scoring points, drawing frees or drawing double and triple marks.

Monagahan would be exposed for being a bunch of game but limited footballers if they didn't have 15.

Watched 3rd season of Last Chance U and really enjoyed it. Seemed like a rollercoaster season for the team and it was an interesting story.

Not sure about coach Brown. In his more guarded moments in front of the camera one on one he seems like a decent guy with anger issues but then when he loses it he really loses it.

What an incredible season.

My heart sank when I saw what happened to Bobby Bruce. You could see it coming a mile away but you hoped he would avoid being another statistic. The coaches literally talked to him about what had happened to Issiah Wright at one point.

I also thought Malik Henry got a seriously raw deal from Brown and even his own father. Probably the most telling moment was when he was asked what he wanted to do and he said coaching, not being an NFL player. The kid seems very gifted with the X's and O's, but because his father keeps pushing him he's doing something he's talented at but has no real love for. He needed a coach that would support him more than Brown was capable of doing.

These bans are so stupidly arbitrary in length itís laughable to suggest changing it from time to games without addressing the many inconsistencies and numerous cases where bans are overturned or reduced first.

Watching the live coverage back here and Joe Brolly is a f**king weirdo. Did anyone notice him stroking TomŠs OíSeís leg early in the coverage with a dirty grin on his face. Tomas looked liked he wanted to chin him.

Tomas and yourself mustnít be too secure in your sexuality so.

I see Kevin Walsh was somewhat non committal about his future.

Angling for more funds/control.

Ah the Tyrone lads can at least enjoy ''Up for the Match''. They'll drag in Charlie for to talk about that Red Card he did not walk off the field for. And Brush Shields will talk about how great the Hill was in the seventies!

You will also have the concerted media ambush the week before the game! Former Dublin players will be out in force to blacken a decent Player threat from Tyrone. The Northern Brand of football will be vilified!

In fairness Tyroneís brand of football is already the most vilified in living memory. You can get much blacker than pitch black. Reckon itís a job for Dublin Joe or Gough.

Having seen them first hand this year you must know that it's nonsense that they are a poor brand of football.

You actually think Tyrone have a good brand of football? What? I know you can be cross-eyed when it comes to your own county but this is more than a bit silly. Owning what you are is the first step..
