Is Paul mc Conville only player from 1997 still lining out for either side?
ronan McGovern would more than likely be lining out if fit

Time for Sam?

Have a look at the thread on "Show your Suport" Not as much time for Sam as you might expect.
Really poor response from many areas in Down inclding Mayobridge, Kilcoo & Hilltown - the so-called "heart" ofthe GAA in Down.

Instead go look at Loughinisland, Dundrum, Annalong (yes, Annalong!).

Show Your Support? Not happening at most clubs.

Burren - the poorest display in the county.
But then there are onbly SIX Burren players in the squad.

its a bit naive to suggest that showing support for the team can be quantified by the number of flags/bunting in the town. Of course that has a big part to play in the excitement leading up to all ireland weekend and perhaps burren etc have made a poorer effort than most in this regard, but the club has continually lended support to the county team throughout the years irrespective of "success". The very geography of the burren area does not lend itself well for such decorations. Unlike most of the towns you have given credit there is no town centre in burren as such, with not much else only the chapel and the football field.  I may be coming across overly defensive here and I do agree to an extent that the support from such areas may not be as visual, but I just want to point out that the team and especially those representing burren have the backing of every gael in the locality.

I believe Burren are one of only two clubs that have sold their target level of club down membership to date along with numerous other generous backings from local businessmen. They have also been more than accommodating to the down squad with regards to the use of training facilities including the field, the ice baths and the gym. I also know that a number of burren men were highly involved in the recent golf day which raised much needed funds in the run up to the final, and not least over the course of the year have seen 8 of their players wear the county colours a fact that brings pride to every burren person I know.

the club will be represented in force next sunday and  the support will be unquestioned!!

I personally would like to wish dan, deccy, kevin, anton and cathal the best of luck along with their fellow county men. I hope we will all be celebrating another famous victory for the men in red and black next weekend.

I'm not going to bother with analysis because there is no point. However if anyone knows the handicap for this game for a Tyrone win could they put it up. This is a better bet then Ruby Walsh on a favourite. I could do with making a few quid.

If you think Mc Auley is the only omission you're codding yourself. Where is Paddy andrews? The best young forward in the county. I could go on. But i won't because I won't get any work done today. What has some of the guys playing on Sunday done to justify their inclusion ahead of him?
Starred for the 21's last year, u21 football captain, spear headed DCU to a Sigerson Cup yet he's not good enough to start in the NFL. Mindboggling.

At least mickey Harte went easy on us. Can't fathom the Tyrone selection at all. Leaves 3/4 of his best players on the bench in a must-win game. Then again I can't really criticise when you see the Dublin selection.

this is Indiana's previous attempt at sports prediction. Lets just Say I wont be burning an effigy of Harte any time soon.

Yeah same as.

Had one experience with the rail Nail, wasnt a good one.  The smell he left in Charlie Stubbs bedroom was one I have yet to experience since. Plus he broke our wall.

The Our Nail Loney from the board? Well I've had that many bad experiences with him I wouldn't know where to start!

And I'd say there have been plenty of bad smells left in charlie's room alright!!

the st.pauls player was blocking his runs resulting in the incident

so that gives the Bredagh player a right to kick a man while on the ground, resulting in a broken jaw? what a brave man!

from what i heard thats not what happened

your right, that's not how it happened, as i have just been told exactly what happened. as i said before i didn't see it happening first hand, just him lying on the ground with a few players around him. still, what happened was a judas act, but as OTL asked, will Bredagh do the decent thing if asked by the county board to name and shame the player? i think not!

I have heard that the player was elbowed in the face resulting in a broken jaw-requiring a plate, and the loss of 3 back teeth. There is absolutely no place for this in our game!!

I would highly recommend "early doors" its a comedy that was on bbc
written by "dave" from the royle family, who also acts in it, hilariously funny, some great characters and also has the ability to move you emotionally.

I'm not ashamed to admit i shed a tear  :'(
