i would say there would be reasonable interest from outside the county of people that wouldn't go to the game anyway.

Just finished Vietnam war on Netflix, well worth a binge.. tragic stuff altogether
Didn't realise it was on Netflix. Got about 4 episodes in when it was on tv and the rest is on the Sky box and I need the space! It's brilliant and will try to see the others too.

Was doing my wife's head in! Anytime she was out and came in I had it on! FFS not the Vietnam war again!!!! Havent told her I'm about to start the other ones
Great recommendation lads, it's a real marathon, but it is fantastic. That's the way documentaries should be made.

Been working out the number of titles of West v East.

Which i figure to be: West 50 v East 48

But I included Errigal, Carmen & Augher in West. Correct or not?
Yeah I would count those 3 all as west tyrone of you are splitting it that way.

Should McKernan not have got black instead of yellow for his earlier challenge?

Could well have been ! But the one that was without doubt was start of the game Conor Mallon tripped OíHagan after a catch in mid field. Wasnít even carded for it.

Referee wasnít too hot on Saturday in dungannon.

Shane done well on Sunday. The bradley incident was 50:50 from where I was. Bell hada go for it

Thats why i thought the Morgan one was harsh, there was two cert black cards earlier in the game and he didnt give either of them.
Dara Donnelly balck card for us in the first game was very similar to morgans, very difficult to get out of the way and was a case of just being slightly late, rather than cynical.

The black card continues to be a farce , yet instead of fixing that we are bringing in a raft of other new rules

To say Iím disappointed is an understatement but the town will rattle on and will improve for the experience!

Weekends football low in quality high in excitement though. Coalisland deserving of their win in the end after a spirited edendork performance. Niall Morgan was the player of the weekend for me.

Ardboe looked home and hosed yesterday and killyclogher had a lot of luck for both goals. Sign of true champions to never say die though and Iíd make them favourites to win it now.

Any word on bradley ? Took a bad bang
Morgan was excellent befor going off
Any views on his Black card?
I didnt get a clear look at it as my eye had followed the ball. certainly caught him late, but not sure he deliberately took him out of it.
Given the challenges the ref had given yellows for earlier in the game when they could easily have been black, i felt it was harsh.
The application of the black card is still all over the place and massively frustrating for players

Coalisland got out of jail today. Edendork looked dthe better side for long periods and unlucky not to get anything from that game. A couple of big calls in the last 15 minute didn't go thier way.

Punishments that might act as a detterent i.e. a thing that discourages or is intended to discourage someone from doing something.

To The Club
Pitch closure for a year (don't totally agree with this but if an incident happened in an adult code then force them to play all games away the next year and let the youth play at home) - hits clubs in the pocket too
Ban from certain competitions the following year the major one being the championship

To The Player
12 month ban from playing

What happens at the minute
To The Club
Nothing or a small fine that some benefactor can pay

To The Player
One game ban!!!!

I'd agree with all this. Supporters entering the field of play need the book thrown at them too

The current sanctions are a joke.
The one game that strabane and stewartstown player got is ridiculous .

I think 12 months is never going to happen, so maybe lets start with an enforceable one. 6 games from all competitions, not this 1 game in the same competition sh1te.
You end up with the situation where players never actually serve a band if the team is promoted or relegated!

Carlow manager Turlough O'Brien has told Sky Sports how he is "gobsmacked" by the proposed rule changes to Gaelic football.

The GAA confirmed on Tuesday that there are five rule changes on the table for Gaelic football, with a view for them to be trialed in the 2019 National League.

The confirmation was met with a mixed reaction and O'Brien told Sky Sports of his displeasure at the moves.

"I am gobsmacked by the new rules," he said. "I'm stunned at the number of rules they're putting forward for a start, and that some of them are so unrealistic, I can't understand why they've done it. They're saying, 'you've got to play a certain way, and the way is simple; 1940s, catch and kick, and wear your flat cap'.

"I think the game today, there are issues but none of these are dealing with it. I mean the biggest issue in the game for me is the tackle, and there's no mention of it anywhere. They haven't addressed it. As a result, we end up with all of these controversial black cards."

"We're going to go to sin bins, which I've no problem with. But the sin bin for two yellows now is extraordinary, considering it was a red card offence previous to this, and now you're going to reward these people by letting them back into the game. That seems like an anomaly straight away.

"I think it's restrictive, they want [us] to play a certain way. It's restricting the hand pass, sideline kicks, and this unbelievably bizarre idea to restrict the kick-outs to two vs two in the middle third of the field is just, I just don't know where they're coming from with that. I just don't know."

The Barrowsiders manager suggested that these rule changes are being brought in due to calls from a few vocal figures.

"I think they're responding to the very vocal criticism of a number of analysts, really. That's driving a lot of this in my opinion.

"I just think these are regressive. I think these people (making the rules), they're not involved in coaching the game, they're not involved in playing the game at the moment. And I think they're being influenced by two or three analysts. Every time you pick up a newspaper, there are two or three analysts who are criticising the game of football."

O'Brien went on to argue that the League is not an appropriate platform to trial these rules, given how important it can be to the likes of Carlow.

"I think the fact that they want to trial it in the National Football League is outrageous. We're working very hard to get to Division 3, and now we're going to be subjected to trial rules where players aren't familiar with it, and it could cost you relegation and promotion in the National Football League, the second major competition they have. I think it's mad.

"To treat it like this is going to disrespect the competition. It's going to infuriate. Some teams are going to suffer because these rules are being trialed in this major competition."

"They emailed a survey to be completed by managers and players. So it's important everyone does respond to that and let them know what they think of it."
Couldn't have put it any better. Agree 100% with him.

The only thing wrong with Carmens dressing rooms is that they are small. They are clean and well kept. I have heard there are plans to upgrade them but im not sure how you can make them bigger without developing out into the car park.
Agree here. Carrickmore are along way ahead of Pomeroy and Dungannon.
Pomeroy simply does not have the facilities to host 4 teams in a double header, but sure who cares as long as we have a big terrace.

Did you not notice the foundations for the new dressing rooms at the top end of Plunkett Park. This time next year hopefully work will be completed.

That might be the case, but we have regularly had big championship games there over the last 10 years when they are plainly not fit for purpose.

IMO, carrickmore is the best club championship venue in Tyrone.

No great difficulty to referee, so long as everyone can accept that a passive transgression (ie Johnny wanders over halfway line, does a count, quickly wanders back.... without getting involved in play) by a player does not merit a punishment.

How would that work? And a referee is supposed to be following the play, not constantly doing headcounts over half the field.


If you were to take such a rule in a completely literal way, it would be impossible to referee. As you say, their head would need to spin all match long.

If the rule through were to be written so that only active participants are counted, it would make things much easier. So if Dublinís CHB wanders inside the opposition half making 10 Dubs in there, itís not penalised unless said CHB tries to become an active part the game e.g. becoming an option to receive the ball, or (in reverse), closing off an angle of attack.
Ah Jesus, then you get into the same sort of farce they have with offside in soccer with who is active and who isnt.

The only thing that seems to get given consideration when fixing these championship games is capacity. Facilities for the players in terms of adequate changing rooms and a decent playing surface dont seem to come into it at all.
The fact Dungannon and Pomeroy get so many big games is ridiculous.
