On the Nolan show now.
Call me cynical but this guy is milking it for book sales.
Saint Sean, squeaky clean and wholesome.

Canít understand him at all. Youíd nearly think heís trying to cash in while people still remember him as a great county player.

No harm in it at all but letís not pretend that it isnít part of this whole situation!!

Do Mayo ladies nominate their captain from the previous years County Champions??

Always thought it a ridiculous system and surely hasn't helped Mayo's situation this year when the manager has a player foisted upon him as Captain who he doesn't really want to play!!!

Heard from a few sources today that the Cavanagh incident was accidental and straight in front of the referee... I wonder will all the moral crusaders like MacKenna/Kimmage and their ilk retract what theyíve said??

Seanís tweet was very cryptic... would he have had a book out recently??

We did the Bruges one a few years back. Christmas market was ok but the city itself was beautiful. Some deadly beers, too.

Always wanted to go to Bruges. Did you fly out of Belfast? Remember looking at flights a few years ago and don't think I could get their directly.

Brussels then a train to Bruges it isn't that far but I've been a couple of times and it's a class spot!

Need to do something with herself so thinking Christmas Markets may be a good idea. So far logistically Prague is looking like the best option the first week in December.

ďThe legal routeĒ

This thread has reached peak absurdity I see.

If someone had accused you of creating ďan unsafeĒ environment incorrectly would you not seek for them to retract it??

Is there not something a bit hypocritical slagging off a lad for spitting and nipping you during a match when one of your team mates was doing the exact same to the opposition??

I was playing a game, up north don't you know. Fella on my team was doing nothing, innocent fella, never hurt a fly. In fact he looked after orphaned puppies in his spare time. Anyway in this game, he kicked a great score them up came this awful sc**bag b**tard ****. Pulled out a samurai sword and cut his head clean off.  Poor b**tard never played again and the perpetrator got off on an appeal. Disgusting.

Best post on the board for a long time fair play!!!

Thankfully there was no utter scumbags playing on seans team.

I look forward to Seans recollections on diving, sledging and other stuff Tyrone (amongst others) got up to during his time.



I know this was nothing new, but the stuff on Mass and the Rosary for me is something that the Tyrone CB should be looking very strongly at.  Totally inappropriate given the message it sends out to those with other faiths and none, that have an interest in playing Gaelic Football.

Funny priorities here.

Five Points - you mightn't think it a priority and maybe I'm the only one, but I find Harte's bringing of religion into the changing room just as bad as bringing politics into it.  Very dangerous, backward road to be on.  It assumes everyone is a practicing catholic, and assumes everyone conforms.  People can be reared in the catholic community, but be very anti-church.  We do have small but rising numbers of protestants and other religions involved and need more. This is hugely inappropriate and must be tackled.  Can't understand that there isn't uproar over this.  GAA shouldn't be tolerating it in this day and age.  Before you say anything, I'm a practicing catholic myself, but find this totally wrong.

I agree with this. Forcing religion on the players in this way is completely wrong. I'm sure he offered people the option of not going to mass/saying the rosary but given Harte's dictator style, they were probably afraid to say no. A third of Tyrone's population is protestant. Now obviously 99% of them have no GAA interest, but theyre hardly encouraged to be a part of it when the leader shoves catholicism down everyone's throat. You can be fairly sure in a panel of 35 in Ireland that someone there has had a family member hurt/abused by the church and they resent it, yet feel obliged to continue the charade.

Harte does this because heís a bully. Itís a sad indictment of the players that they continue to put up with it.

At least with Mickey in charge thereís a bit of respect there and standards are maintained. Howís it going in Derry where the players rule the roost and have had little or no respect for umpteen consecutive managers?

Well your lads won nothing this year either and are as far away from Dublin as we are so not too worried about it!!

Weíve a few good groups of young lads coming through so the futureís bright 😉😉

Hard to separate but fair f**ks to both players!

Havenít seen it properly but was Serena Williams badly done there getting docked a a game?

Her interview after was very good and her words for Osaka but it seems very harsh.

Not a good US Open for the officials!!

Any reports from matches so far?

Glen very lucky to get out of jail when they should have kicked on and won the match comfortably. Midfield got cleaned out and theyíll have to sort that for the next match!

We got completely out of jail. Bellaghyís inexperience maybe told at the finish as they controlled large parts of the game but missed vital chances that could have won the game for them. What thon lad was doing taking those long frees off the ground Iíll never know. Bellaghy probably the better side but we were much more clinical and Benny Heronís second goal was a clinker!!

Weíve a lot to work on for the next round but good to get through!

His anger is understandable.  Pete Boyle started Argento from nothing (a market stall).  Like many others he would have built his business with a lot of blood, sweat and tears and a lot of initiative.  He's a good guy who gives a lot back.  Why wouldn't he be frustrated if something outside of his control is threatening his business and the livelihood of his staff.

You obviously never worked for him, or watched him in action with any managers who displeased him!

Read all about it . . . Boss gives out to employees shocker!!!

Cora Staunton may have a legitimate grievance. I donít know that. You donít know that. However, Iím not going to completely discount it.

If she had a legitimate grievance then she should be taking it through the LGFA disciplinary bodies, she's doing no one any favors by staying quiet on the matter like she's doing now, if some thing was wrong with the setup she should expose it.

She signed an NDA!

Impressive in this day and age!

Bjorn's picks

Paul Casey
Sergio Garcia
Ian Poulter
Henrik Stenson

Garcia is a terrible pick. Shows no faith in the rookies. And lets face it, are Rahm, Noren and Fleetwood really rookies? I don't think they fear anything.
Sergio ain't going to intimidate anyone when he's shooting a 78. Would love to see him and Tiger paired in the singles.
Anyway massive drubbing for Europe on the cards.

Apparently, according to Rory, Sergio is very good in the locker room. That will have the Americans terrified and I'm sure they will hours on counter tactics.

Garcia/Olesen and Stenson would be a worry for me. I'd actually be quite confident about the others playing well. Had Stenson not been injured I'd be confident about him too as he's got a good pairing with Rose from previous outings.

The US team will have plenty of problems on the French course especially the way Tiger and Phil have driven the ball this year. It should still be exciting but not sure about the 3 lads!
