Tyrone / Re: Tyrone Club Football and Hurling

Yip there was an email on Sunday night to say they refunding everyone. Be interesting to find out how many actually bought it. Bit of a hit on the coffers as the production company will still need paid and they have said it wasnít their fault.
serious financial hit alright considering the crowd at the game was down at least a couple of thousand. Would there have been 2 thousand subscribers at 8 quid?

By the talk of them before game (which worked perfect for me) they were saying there was major numbers involved. There was 6k at the game, I would imagine there would have been just as many (worldwide) subscribed for the online coverage.

Would the general hit to the county boards pocket not be the same if it was 2k or 6k??? Setting aside a some small bank/paypal fees the cost will be the same as they got 8quid in and are giving 8 quid back? ???

Not too sure of how it runs but I'm sure Tyrone TV has employees to pay/equipment hire (assuming they don't own everything for sake of maybe 10 days a year) / remote technical staff maybe involved / Media Costs...I'm sure big Joe needs paid ?

It wont be a popular view but if it was up to me it should cost more to watch the game on the internet not less. Our club championships are special and we should be encouraging as many people as possible to come and watch them. The players deserve to play in front of big crowds. There is no doubt Sundays attendance was down as a result of the game being on the internet and it will be a trend going forward. Our games are heavily attended by neutrals but if they can watch from home for a cheaper price and less hassle there is no doubt many will take up that option.

I know there will be people who genuinely cant make the game but at least coverage at a charge is better than the offering in the past.

Agree with certain sentiments. However it's dangerously close to punishing OAP/Handicapped members of society. That's what springs to my mind first. I think you mean normal run of the mill 18-40 year olds who have their own transport and have no reason not to attend though?

Internet coverage must be a god send for those with families.

Never seen more yapping about £8 in my life, holy ghost if yous were that interested you could've went to the game maybe?? Anyway, yous missed f*ck all, it was bad showing from overrated Errigal

It's bringing up the "grab all association" mob. People seem to assume that
1) Everything GAA-related should be free or its against the ethos of the association.
2) Tyrone GAA deliberately mucked up the service after getting the £8 off people.

I had no issue paying the £8 yesterday or the £7 for the two finals last week. I would assume the majority are in the same boat. The fact that it didnít work was the issue. Therefore itís only right people were refunded. I donít think thereís any wrong with expecting a refund in that situation.

Just got an email to say I was being refunded there....I hadn't raised dispute or anything in paypal so they are doing it anyway.

Another point, we always enter it. Division one or two, why are clubs not forced to enter a team in such an important age group

I agree u21 is an important age group, for me even more important than minor. But simple fact is some clubs just do not have the numbers. Especially those clubs with an already small pick. The bigger division one clubs, Clonoe, Errigal, Dromore, Coalisland etc will have no problem but for majority of others you are lucky if you could pull 15 out to play considering they could be away at Uni/Work/Senior Priority etc

Charlie Vernon we the physical prototype for modern footballers. I remember his quads having quads when he was about 18/19.

Always thought he was wasted in Full Back for Armagh, a great player. Great lad too.

Galbally probably favourites for Intermediate but Kinawley would be my dark horses.  Think Buncrana play in a high enough division in Donegal, so they prob strong enough for Junior?  Rock will be there or thereabouts.  What is it with Rock anyway?  Always seem to move between Junior and Intermediate.

They are a small club, they have a small enough pick - they also don't try a leg when they get to Intermediate. It'll be the same this year. But it wasn't that long ago they lost a play off to go to Senior Football either.

Well obviously thatís not true. Bit of an urban myth that one in Tyrone circles.

They get relegated every single time they go up. I don't know what more evidence is required on that one really to be honest with you.

have been in the pits of despair after the county final 2 weeks ago because we were fully aware that this overrated and still unproven ballygawley team have not warranted the hype. 

This may change in the years ahead but it remains to be seen.  Thankfully the arrogant bunch have been brought down a peg or two with their pitiful performance yesterday. 

They'll probably reply to this when they hammer everyone to win the league on new years day after sticking to the iced lemon water all Christmas. 

Better get the cheque book out again because they haven't won a county title with a club man in charge for 13 years and counting!!!!

good to have you back. Some win for your u21's.
Errigal are filled with hot air

Grade 2 u21 championship for a club steeped in tradition like coalisland marvellous achievement. Just good to see white bap behaved himself in this u21 final.

I think its a joke the a big club like Coalisland play in Grade 2 at underage especially when they go and win it.  Surely they would be good enough to compete at grade 1 but obviously winning a title is more important to the club.  If my memory serves me correct this same team was winning minor underage titles at grade 2 so winning this was hardly a surprise to them.  Errigal do the same.  I see there u16 are playing grade 2 and a few years back there u14s won the Feile at Grade 2.  Certain large clubs shouldn't be allowed to operate this way.

You can choose what grade your underage teams play in?

Galbally from Tyrone shouldn't be far away from Ulster but it will depend on how hard they have celebrated. They lost their first game all year at the weekend there so who knows.

Can the rugby team beat the voices in their head and dump New Zealand out of the competition ?

Whatever about voices in their head, they can't beat the ABs.

And Armagh, Tyrone, Derry and Donegal could never win an All Ireland and they did. Through pure drive and determination(with some fantastic players of course). They can win and knock the All Blacks out. They have the talent and i think we will win.
     

Get off the beer, work in the morning.

Cool. Well done

Heard weíve got a solicitor going out for the Bundee Aki hearing. Have we missed a trick in not sending Fergal Logan?

Safer off without him.

So apparently Sir Mo thinks that people are questioning whether he doped because they are racist, not because his former coach was convicted of doping violations.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/video/2019/oct/12/bullish-mo-farah-hits-out-at-media-agenda-video

Does he not have a publicist or someone to give him advice about dealing with the media??

Literally the worst possible thing he could say in this situation and patently untrue it makes him look even more guilty!!

Disaster for Farah....to me he's basically sank himself here.
