GAA Discussion / Re: Galway V Mayo R4 Qualifier

Obviously they’re biased, but the commentators on MidWest stated that Galway were starting aggro all over the pitch just before the throw in. Can anyone who was actually there confirm or deny this

Sure they also said McQuillan was giving all the decisions to Galway.  ;D

All the Mayo fans around me though he was riding us as well. Galway folk though he was doing them!
Now Cormac Reilly really did do us in 2014 in Limerick. No debate there.
Walsh on about agendas driven from the top, pathetic.

If we've only Conroy - who hasn't played any inter county in a year - fit for MF we are bunched.
I assume the other 5 are Duggan, Flynn, Ó Curraoin, Cooke and D'Arcy (who you couldn't be reliant on anyway)?
Would Walsh not come out around the middle then?

I'd worry if we go with the same FB line again.
Can't understand how Stephen Coen gets so many starts with Mayo, just don't see what he offers.
Barrett has been poor too, he's constantly going in with the arm over in the tackle giving away soft frees.
I have to laugh at the constant negativity of some mayo fans .
mayo are  in a league final for feck sake playing really good football. :Loads of new player have been bled, some older players have come back into the reckoning .
Aidan O se has been on top of his game and that means there few better players in the country. there have been very few injuries  plus we don't have to play dublin in the final
thing could hardly be better ,
You're easily amused then and obviously just a cheerleader.
Hope you've your poms poms ready for Sunday.

Horan doing videos talking about Adventures, Quests and Odysseys. "Brand Mayo". Some amount of cringe. It's not the presidency he's taking over

He seems to have you rattled anyway  ;D ;D

My eyes rattled from cringing?

"Brand Mayo". He's the manager of an average rural county's amateur football team, not the owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Quests and Odysseys is even stranger again. Perhaps he's a World of Warcraft fan
who are hugely popular and successful in fundraising allowing them to compete at the top level of football for the last decade from our impoverished county rather than whinge about dublin.
Welcome to footballs real world

Should he not be trying to extract less money from people in one of the countries more impoverished counties rather than more? Brand Mayo, sounds like a racket to take yet more from loyal fans. I do agree that Mayo's fundraising from far afield has been phenomenal from a county that wouldn't exactly be known for big businessmen abroad.
Did you actually listen to the interview? He was playing that stuff down, saying it was mythology.

I know. I got the door after a few negative comments a few years back. Thank God this is a more open forum where pessimism is actually allowed or I'd be banished forever.
Did you get the routine lecture from yer man banishing you from his noble site for not meeting his high standards, bet you criticized Ger Caff.
Well, I had a run in with him once and I wound up telling him that he could supposit his site for all I cared. ;D
 He seems to have mellowed a bit but back when he was getting his site off the ground, he had an ego the size of Croke Park.
Just by chance, I decided to have a look at his site shortly after he put it up. I hadn't been there before so I was curious to find out what the blog was all about.
 I got one helluva surprise to find that the centrepiece was devoted to gaaboard.com and the activites of some of the Mayo posters who had the temerity to criticise what he had said about some county player or other.
He let the world know that he was on holidays just then but when he returned he was going to sort the whole effin' lot of us out. (I am being serious, btw.)
We were all sculking behind usernames on an obscure internet formum but, if any of us were brave enough, we should post to his site and debate the issue face to him. I just couldn't resist the temptation to wind him up a bit further and I had no problem at all in doing that.
I wound up telling him where he could shove his site and his ego also.
I'm afraid he pulled my last post.
Since then, he seems to hace copped on a lot and I think he is quite a good analyst and, if you ignore the loolas who add their comments, I'd have little to complain about. The Results Archive in particular is an invaluable reference source and, all in all, I'd recommend his iste to any genuine Mayo fan.

I think his ego has got to an all time high ever since he became the Mayo supporters voice on the Mayo News podcasts. The best part of his blog is his result archive a lot of work he put into that in fairness to him.
Yeah I think he's got worse and Rob Murphy's his lapdog now.
It's the pontificating I can't stand, the attitude to the resignation rumour where no-one can comment till it comes via the fourth estate, such bull.

Savage player the sort of fella any team would want to see thundering out of their dressing room. He had unreal vision too, could pick out a player in half a second. Can still remember him getting ready to come on in 2014 and knowing he was going to be trouble. Couple Mayo supporters behind me saying he was finished, gobshites, he sickened our holes that day and the next day for sure da bollix. Almost did enough in the first match last year to see us off too.

Fair play to Cian O'Neill. The people of Kildare are fully behind them.
How many of ye went to Longford?

Plenty. Should be more in Newbridge on Saturday night!
I think we'll outnumber ye in Croke Park so.

https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/gaelic-games/gaelic-football/gaa-insists-kildare-will-forfeit-mayo-qualifier-if-they-don-t-play-at-croke-park-1.3543393
The GAA will not be budging on their decision to fix Saturday’s round three All-Ireland football qualifier between Kildare and Mayo for Croke Park - despite the clear threat from Kildare that they will not be showing up.

Kildare were entitled to home advantage, having been drawn first from the bowl earlier on Monday morning, but a meeting of the GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) later decided that the capacity at St Conleth’s Park in Newbridge was not suitable for “health and safety” reasons.

Kildare officials had already aired their discontent and have now indicated they are not willing to play the game anywhere other than at home in Newbridge.

“We are making it clear that we will not play this game in Croke Park,” said a Kildare statement. “St Conleth’s Park is perfectly capable of hosting the tie on an all-ticket basis, Newbridge is perfectly capable of dealing with the number of supporters that will attend.”

However the GAA are no longer open to discussion on the matter, and the game will be played in Croke Park as double-header with the meeting of Cavan and Tyrone.

“The game has been fixed for 7pm in Croke Park, and that is not going to change under any circumstances”, Feargal McGill, the GAA’s director of games administration, told The Irish Times.

“We fully appreciate where Kildare are coming from. We don’t take home venue off of a team lightly. However, health and safety has to come first. It’s that simple. The last thing we wanted to do was take this out of Newbridge, but we simply had no choice. There is no room for manoeuvre, not when it comes to health and safety. If Kildare don’t show up in Croke Park on Saturday at 7.0pm the game will be awarded to Mayo.”
When all other excuses dry up..

Real bad form this and you'd wonder did KCB have this sort of agreement already in place. Supporters kicked up a fuss about Mayo v Kerry replay in Limerick a few years back but the county board had already agreed to it well before then.

To be fair, that game was moved from one neutral venue to another neutral venue.
Apples & oranges.
Not saying they're the same just that county boards can sometimes be complicit in these things.
