Surprised there is no mention of it, but Gweedores third gl was not a penalty, big call by the ref that had a big bearing on the game. It was a fair side to side hit

Totally agree. It really pisses me off when refs blow up this sort of challenge. Ffs there has to be some physicality in the game and this was a perfectly timed shoulder.
Watch it again. Stone wall penalty. Went through the back of him.

I have watched it again, side to side, perfect shoulder and he dislodges the ball. It's the type of challenge which is more often than not blown up but it shouldn't be.
Just missed the shoulder. Hit him in the back. Clear penalty.

Antrim clubs have always done poorly in that competition. I donít understand why. The Derry teams play in our leagues and donít win them. Strange one.

They are always strong at that level st club and school level, the transition to senior is completely lost due to foootball
That said, in our leagues there is always an Antrim winner. Antrim schools more than hold their own as well. Yet, in this competition our clubs struggle.

I think the competition had been going 10 years before an Antrim club (St Johns) won it.

Corbyn is part of the reason the Country is in a mess. . . a load of left wing headbangers joined the Labour Party for 50p now there's no way they can force him out even though he's never going to appeal to the middle ground Labour need to win back Parliament.

Along with that he's a f**king Brexiteer so f**k him anyway. The UK is in severe bother but I actually think there is a way out of this if May sticks to her guns!!

Yep Irish nationalists should stay well clear of Corbyn. Not to be trusted

Nationalism is fine without Corbyn the border poll will be soon enough... the problem will be the Irish taking us on not the Brits casting us aside!!

You hit the nail on the head screenexile, if there was a vote in the 26 counties next week for Irish unity, I honestly think as low as 35/40% would be in favour.

i think it would be more like 55% in favour,  but it would be out of patriotism or a sense of nationalism and finality to the whole partition issue. it certainly wouldn't be down to personal gain because we would almost certainly be worse off.

It'd more than likely take 10 or 15 years to come back to normal. I'm sure people could manage that.
We live in a world of here and now. The thought of 10-15 years of difficult economic conditions for the sake of having nordies join us isnít at all appealing. Why bother our holes & the holes of our children?

Trivia Question. Which player(s) would have the greatest set of medals in the history of Antrim club football?
Andy McCallin?

St.Pauls trying to save themselves from Division 3 football next year. Proposing 3 x team leagues 1A, 1B ,2A and a 10 team - div 2B.  Totally ignoring promotion and relegation. A team that won four games all year - worthy of Div2 A status .....Jesus weep for them
Happens every year. As I said previously, the rule should be that changes to leagues should not apply until the year after. Teams need to be aware of what they are playing for. It would stop this annual nonsense too.

Once again I can only go on my experience. Festival dancing is closer to the old ways of it and thereís less trappings and a much closer connection between the dancers. My daughter is 13 now and has been at it from she was 5-6 and loves it. Like I said she has made all her best friends through it. Iím unusual as a father who goes to a lot of the festivals but honestly I have not had the negative experience that some are expressing.
Is that ďthe other sideĒ? Yuck, spit!

Itís far better that the wigs and make up, trashing kids up to look like dolls, but hey if thatís your thing
Itís still the other side. Thatís all that matters.

Milltown, they were very lucky to get by St. Gallís in the semi and won the final by a point. Had they not Ďpeakedí they wouldnít have won Antrim?

I donít understand people saying he should ignore the abuse. Why should these thugs get a free ride? Call them out at every opportunity I reckon. They are in the wrong.

Firstly, if the club back those thugs over him it sends out a terrible message. Abuse our players if you wish. Secondly, he already gets a torrid time. Thatís what heís standing up against. I canít see him caring one bit about being sent to the reserves over this. You are totally over-hyping it.
Cough cough
Warned.  ::)

For using the term ďcavemenĒ no less. Christ.
