Joe being shown up for what he is. No integrity at all. The poor wee old men lying up in the hospital beds will be devastated. I really did not think he would do it.
Has to find some way of keeping himself relevant.

Who's over Edendork this year? What is Barton (a specialist in failure) up to?

Turned down Ballinderry by all accounts. Must be taking a year off.

Wouldnít say Barton is a specialist in failure. His list of clubs has some of the biggest teams in Ulster - Burren, Ballinderry, Loup, Slaughtneil plus UUJ and Derry. Not every team wins but surely he must be decent if he has coached all them calibre of teams. I totally agree that if success is measured on medals then he has failed but has he left the clubs in a better place than when he arrived - that is the key of a good manager.
If you donít take into account the 5 starred games which realistic Edendork would struggle to win w/o their county men then they are playing for a total of 20 points. Tough to stay in Div 1 when you need to get 10/12 points out of 20 in which you are competitive in. Got them 4 championship victories in 2 seasons which is not bad either.

Had heard he turned down 2 Div1 clubs in Tyrone also along with Ballinderry who thought they had him in the bag for the 2020 season

Gets a lot of sh*t, especially here but he's a good football man. Rarely hear a bad word about him from anyone at any club he's ever been at.
Aye what a great interpretation from the pair of youse. He has taken a nice wage from Edendork and left them in a lower division than where he started. I doubt they'll be too worried about whether he is a "good football man". Just another in a long line of managers who hop from club to club seeking a small fortune. Is a laughing stock in his own county because of it

What's up with these east Tyrone clubs not providing refs?
Sure what would possess a man to be a ref these days with the shite they have to listen to and the 49 new rules from when they played the game
A nice wee cheque for 5/6/7/8 grand a week before Xmas.
Surely you would have to do a serious amount of games for that kind of money?

Doesn't be long adding up, you could maybe do 2 youth games a day then a Senior the following. Not many refs as you say.

No idea, think I heard once 25 junior / 35 adult. Someone more knowledgeable would be able to tell us.

There is a reason Martin Sludden and Martin Hurson etc take  u16 and u18 games.

So if you give up Wednesday night, and your entire weekend for 26 weeks of the year you could get £2900.

I'll Pass, Thanks
Completely agree, however I fail to see how to make it more appealing to people unless we offer them £45 at least for a game. Will cost the average club an extra £150/year for adult games and an extra £600 for youth games (assuming home team pays, and 12 games per year at each under age level)

I think it could be Sean Hurson you are refering to

I've just seen the team that Cahair decided upon.
He's gone for McKeever at CHB, but then left out a few of the other players from '93 that were still playing at the start of the 00's ie Tohill, Downey, Brolly.
This is the team he selected:
1. B Gillis
2. K McGuckin
3. K McCloy
4. SM Lockhart
5. P McFlynn
6. K McKeever
7. SL McGoldrick
8. F Doherty
9. Patsy Bradley
10. J McBride
11. C Gilligan
12. M Lynch
13. Paddy Bradley
14. E Muldoon
15. E Bradley

Wouldnít have Kieran mcKeever anywhere near 6. For all my time watching derry, I never saw him play there once. Gilligan at 11 raises other eyebrows. Class club player , who although played County  level for a long time, never excelled. Maybe Kieranís positioning at number 6 shows our lack of other options.
Your hole, Gilligan was always a 3/4 points a game man. You are correct about him being a class club player, but there is no doubting he is the top 6 forward in the county in this past 20 years

Strange Killyclogher hasn't been filled yet, they are a really good team full of potential.
Considering they had 3 management Teams last year its hardey surprising. Hard too work with and a lot of prima donnas to keep on board

John Rafferty to Donaghmore. Previously managed St Galls to AI Club final in '06, Rostrevor and Bellaghy of note and was an assistant to Joe Kernan with Armagh too

Any Tyrone clubs chance their arm and try to poach Jim Gavin?
Long shot for some maybe
Just as well Jim Gaviin stepped down Top of the Soil, the connecting of Malachy O'Rorke to every job was proving fruitless, another few months of this ahead no doubt.

Donaghmore about to pay the man who just missed out on Clonoe job serious money....
How much is serious money nowadays?

Going rate for a D1 manager payment can be anything from 12k to 25k. Depending on club and manager involved.
25k for one man? Seems like an awful amount of money. How much would the likes of McBride be getting in Errigal? And does it come with a championship clause?
Seems stupid errigal paying anyone at all to manage them considering there resources. For a club to pay someone whilst having probably the greatest player to ever play the game at there club seems silly.
Agree, however there is no point opening that can of worms. I have just learnt not to expect anything simple by Errigal. With men like Canavan, the Hartes, O'Roarke, and a rack of other men with valuable experience on the pitch and on the line, you'd think they can find someone within their own ranks that could step up?

Don't forget Enda McGinley. He took them to back to back minor championships in 17 and 18, surely the logical step would be for him to take the senior job and help bring these boys through. He managed Swatragh this year so time mustn't be an issue for him.
Time maybe isnt an issue, but doubt Errigal would be interested in giving him the figures he asked certain Armagh club for or got from Swatragh

Apart from the journalists who get a three week holiday in Oz and the Croke park staff (who may or may not have any operational connection to the games) who get drawn out of a hat to go - does anyone give a toss about this anymore?

My son wants to go and see a game next year as he has never seen it before. I'm sure there will be plenty like him.
Well im sure that your son was at the top of everyone's agenda when they were deciding whether or not to hold the series. What away to justify this waste of time, money and resources. Tube

Big appointments incoming in ballygawley and east Tyrone by the weekend. Former Monaghan crew touted to be signed up. Think we will see a lot of movement in coming weeks as clubs try to get house in order long before Christmas! Gone were the days when clubs would meet mid jan and start to look at things

Ive been tipping O'Rourke for a Tyrone club for a lifetime. Hopefully a few of you posters start listening to me
Quite simply a case of throwing enough dung at the gable and something will stick in your case.

4 divisions of 12 teams next year?
Would be good and very competitive but the championship structure works off the leagues so how do you decide whos in each level
top 16 teams in the county i.e All in division 1 and top 4 from the previous years division 2 play in senior, Rest of division 2 and 8 teams from division 3 play in intermediate and all below that play in junior. Just a suggestion

Reality is individual clubs can take a stand against this by removing those who they know are involved in drug use from their teams and strip them of club membership. It has absolutely zero place in our communities or our association.
To be honest thats an absolute non runner. Impossible to police and unfair to expect club members to police it. Its not like fellas be landing down to the club off their nut. How would you go about it? "Johnny I hear you were doing a few lines at a party at the weekend, dont come back through those gates". Hes likely to tell you to go fcuk yourself.
Well then dont come crying and complaining when the culture develops. If this sort of stuff was nipped in the bud then there is no issue. People involved in this sort of carry on need ostracised from the community and then young people will think twice about engaging in behaviour like this. Not a nice thing to have to do but ultimately needed.

Teams need to wise up and just play away without county players over the summer.
Obviously you come from a club with either no county men, or a large enough pick to offset playing without county men. Clubs produce these players, they should have access to them as they see fit. Tube
