Antrim / Re: Antrim Football Thread
« on: September 23, 2018, 08:39:14 PM »
Depressing weekend for those genuinly interested in seeing our county football team flourish. Stars of the weekend included Mick Mc Cann, Michael Magill, Justin Crozier, Mickey Pollock, Aodhan Gallagher, Sean Kelly, with honourable mentions to Paddy Cunningham, Tomas Mc Cann ( who was quiet but nailed on a few scores when the chips were down) Colm Brady and Andy Mc Clean.

None available to/for Lenny for all sorts of reasons. And an average age of 34 between them!

Would say your last line is the reason they arenít available
Would agree with that.

How many boys are regularly playing colleges football in the 3 years after minor?
How many boys are regularly playing senior/reserve football in the 3 years after minor?

A lot fewer than the boys who are playing very little football I would imagine.

Elite players in the U21 bracket are getting hammered into the ground alright. The other ordinary enough lads donít get anywhere near enough games. The elite players are much less in number.

Except Sarah Tierney of course. She walked away and got no ban.

The ban made this a story IMO.
Iím also convinced it was borne out of begrudgery by club delegates who couldnít wait to nail Carnacon to the mast. They came out fighting and we are where we are.

I wouldnít be very well read up on it to be honest. I would have thought there could be an effect on a personís mental health without them having a mental illness.

Am I right in saying Sarah Tierney received no punishment in all of this?

The club withdrawing them seems a bit of a red herring.
The club appears to have been little more than the message boy in this. Those players were clearly the ones who had the issue and they were the ones who walked out.

This is not giving off to each other, this is a form of bullying. It can't be denied, he was on a power trip and took delight in it.



"He basically said he didn't give a "f**k" about how many All Stars I had or what name I had made for myself in football. He was the manager and what he said goes this year."

"I knew what was coming. I was brought away from all players and all of management. It was like a personal attack that evening, I can only describe it as I've never felt so intimidated in my entire life.

"He told me I was getting absolutely roasted at training, that I was performing absolutely shite, that the reason I was distracted the previous night at training was because I was so caught up with going to him with this suggestion of bringing this guest player in.

"He was doing this action - 'you're listening to the others, you're listening to the others' - and I was standing back. He was getting visibly aggressive with me at this stage. It was probably the first time I stood up to him and said 'who are these others you're referring to? I don't understand what you're on about.'

"Peter had mistreated this player, excluded her from the team that evening and treated her really badly. Me and Denise were consoling her and Denise was apologising to this player.

"She was told she wasn't selected on the team that night on purpose and that she wasn't going to make the Connacht final squad. Two weeks beforehand to tell this to a player is not acceptable.

"While me and Denise were consoling this other player, the manager was upstairs having a laugh and joke with another girl who was good friends with the girl who was upset and saying 'oh you'll have a fun journey home tonight.'

Nope, not bullying unless you are an over sensitive little princess. Its elite sports, no room for pandering. Stuff needs to be said and people need feedback. If you cant take feedback you would be better doing something else with your time.
THEY FECKIN DID!

And got banned for it.

By the same token, if the players feel intimidated by the way he is delivering his criticism, they are fully entitled to tell him to shove it up his hole and opt out without the county board banning them from club football.

Your head is up your hole.

By the sounds of it, any team you were ever in was never competitive enough to give off to each other for not coming up to standard.
Please stop personally attacking me.
It seems to me that these players were not used to being spoken to in the way he spoke to them. Now, we can all say ďIíve heard worseĒ or ďItís not that badĒ or ďThey need to suck it upĒ. The fact is they donít have to suck it up and as the saying goes ďif they donít like it they know where the door isĒ. Well, they decided to go out the door. Itís their choice.

Do Mayo ladies nominate their captain from the previous years County Champions??

Always thought it a ridiculous system and surely hasn't helped Mayo's situation this year when the manager has a player foisted upon him as Captain who he doesn't really want to play!!!
No. The captain was not from Carnacon.
