Iím a Belfast Gael and couldnít agree more.

No club in Belfast has good enough parking facilities outside Corrigan.

If the drive is too much of a put off then donít go! Clearly doesnít mean enough to ya.

Wanting to bring my kid to see a senior championship game in Belfast without having to drive 80 mile round trip journeys is now called having an agenda.

Wind your neck in, angry boy.

80 mile round trip not worth it? Us down the country ran to Casement several times every season. It was a pleasure to do it. It's motorway from Belfast until about 10 miles out of Ballycastle, 2 out of Dunloy. If Ballycastle is too long for you to travel to a senior semi final/ Minor final double header then stay at home. There were plenty of senior championship games in Belfast this year. Rossa V St. Johns, Sarsfields V Cushendall, St. Johns V Ballycastle. But keep stamping your feet like a spoilt child there. Never worry about there being no suitable venues in Belfast to host the game, we'll hurl up and down the Andersonstown Road so you don't have to spend a 5er on red diesel.

I believe that the results at the weekend were fair and the refs in both games did not cost any team - i thought they were neutral, tried to let both games flow (rather that than start /stop) yep for sure they missed somethings (and probably could have been helped more by their linesmen) - overall a good performance by both men in the middle.

Haha. You must be related to them or very good friends!

Honestly but, when a ref has a poor game (in the same way a player does), they need to be held accountable. Here's an idea. In cship games, an assessment panel made up of neutral gaels from other clubs (not ex referees) should rate the referees performance on various factors and the overall assessment be posted on Antrim website. All anonymous of course. What about that for a crazy a*s idea. A bit like the player ratings you see in the papers.

Crazy idea is right. Could think of nothing worse.

Due to the death of a players mother.

Any reason why the St Endas game was moved to Wednesday and now to Friday evening?

Cargin were in control at half time. 2 goals outa nowhere got LŠmh Dhearg into a winning position but couldnít see it out.

quote author=Belfast GAA man link=topic=21.msg1850293#msg1850293 date=1537732014]
I couldnít work out why cargin were clear favorites v champs LD and tonightís result showed thereís not much between the teams. R LD not getting credit for winning it last year or is Damien Cassidy seen as a class manager....

Did it even get abandoned? 60 minuted were played.

Division 2 relegation still not decided with Glenariffe beating Ballycastle last night - anyone of Glenariffe , Sarsfields and now tirnanog can go down with Armoy.

Seemed a strange result winning in Ballycastle, inflicting Ballycastles first defeat. But fair play to them

Wouldnít say itís that strange, canít imagine the Ballycastle players have lifted a stick since their championship defeat, and thatís assuming they had their normal full team out.

Anyone any idea whatís happening with the points from the abandoned Sarsfields v Armoy game in the summer? Not scheduled to be replayed on the fixture list

All well and good but its oct nov and dec and boys have been on the go for 9 months. How many are playing for schools or college. Some boys on a 12 month a year schedule now. Far too demanding. Throw in weather and pitch concerns will be a fixture making nightmare

I applaud the initiative. The 17 -20 year olds are the age group where we traditionally lose a stack of players. More than other counties because of the pull of organised soccer league's every Saturday.

Minor is over for most clubs or will be in the next week or so for those still in the minor championship, senior reserve no one trains for and is practically over, and senior football is fizzling out for the vast majority of clubs in the next few weeks..going through the motions to get one or two league games wrapped up. So for the majority of the estimated 450 - 500 players involved this is a fresh challenge and with an A and B prize most clubs will be taking it seriously.
Or should be, if your club is serious about promoting football.

I completely disagree... all theses players are grtting games at mimor reserve or senior. Why do we need to play 8 matches in october and November to win the competition. Overkill and unnessary

Great to be saying something positive about the CCC ! The u21 Football competition has been revamped into 5 group league format along a divisional basis then A&B knockout championship all county thereby each team gets at least 4 matches

Maith thu CCC!

Heres the facts. Cushendall have one foot in the final due to the draw. That makes them favourites. End of.

Auld stock get back in your box. Your input is neither useful nor fair.

Brave man coming on here and openly slating a referee while you hide behind your keyboard.

Predictions for this weekend games and prices from Paddy Power

Sarsfields (10/1) vs Cushendall (1/50) - Cushendall by 15+
St Johns (1/10) vs Rossa (11/2) - St Johns by 8
Carey (8/15) vs Creggan (13/8) - I can see extra time needed
St Galls (8/15) vs St Endas - St Galls a good bet here I see them winning by 5 at least

What's the thoughts of other posters on the games

Cushendall by 20+
St. Johnís by 10+

Both intermediate games are coin tosses
