I would say if BR was turned into a mini-series with the same cast and more R rated it would have had time to get things correct and accurate. 
For all intensive purposes, they had to condense some of the major points of his life into a 2 hour film which was never going to fully work.  Hugely enjoyable all the same.

All joking aside, what constitutes a good season for Armagh this year? A decent string of results in the league? An ulster final appearance? Super 8 appearance?

And vice versa what do the Tyrone fans think is a good year for them? All Ireland potentially after last year?

A bit of perspective here, just like a good tabloid you seem to be cherry picking from the full story. 

McGeeney said he would prefer the super 8ís than beating Down.  I would agree, as good as winning 1 gave in ulster in 5 years would be, getting away to play a few bigger teams at the tail end of the championship is where all teams want to be. 

He is also acknowledging that Dublin Tyrone and Mayo are leading the pack in terms of where teams are at all round (players, preparation, conditioning and that) and he thinks they are they are not near that standard but getting there bit by bit.   

And what Campbell is saying is true also, Murnin and Ethan Rafferty where sure fire starters last year and were playing brilliant football, but they are going to get it tough to get a place in the team.  If anyone watched the ulster club they will know the quality the 2 OíNeil players have, Clarkeís pedigree speaks for itself, and Campbell himself if he is fit can be quite good.

I would say Armaghís team are twice as good as last year and they were punching well above their weight, so I suppose there is some optimism floating about for the first time in a long time.

Persevere with it BennyCake, I was similar at the beginning watching it, but although itís the type of show they donít make anymore.  Iíve finally gotten around to Better Call Saul and find it to be stacks better IMO. 

Also finished off the sinner season 2, very good watching for a weekend binge.

Armagh / Re: Armagh Club football & hurling

Agree with General Lee on most points. 

Cross have young players in major positions across the pitch and they are confident enough to use them there.  They had a tough campaign in Armagh and are now playing in Ulster, this experience is invaluable. 

Donít agree with the point on the Harps though.  To be honest, Lennon is their main scoring threat up front, but nobody else seems to be delivering them the same firepower and his number is already marked.  Iíve watched them a few times during the year and they were poor all over the pitch.  Shocking to see how much the digressed from the year before. 

There are 3/4 teams that will realistically be challenging for the championship next year.  The usual 3 contenders of cross, cullyhanna and maghery and any other team in 1a that hits form and has confidence, whether that be the nab or the harps again. 

There is a clear divide in standard between 1a and 1b, no division 1b teams will be anywhere near the business end in my honest opinion.  But again, the format of league and championship seeding was a huge success.

Was reading Tomas OíSe and Ciaran Whealan have had their says Cluxton on Hoganstand.  Didnít realise he hasnít received one for 5 years which is maddening but donít agree its because he doesnít interact with the media. 

Think Beggan is a well deserving winner.  Cluxton is that good of a keeper and seldom makes mistakes so it hard for him to stand out anymore than he already does in my opinion.

Armagh / Re: Armagh Club football & hurling

One of the better finals in Armagh over the last few years and credit goes to both teams and the ref, who let it flow.  Thought the nab capitalised well on the high ball into the forward line, Grugan was hard to handle and is the old school full forward you rarely see anymore. 

Up the other end, cross were clinical as expected and the game was won in midfield with OíNeil and Hanratty doing the business (didnít realise Hanratty could shoot).  They were impressive all over the park, but seemed slightly exposed at the back.  It will be interesting to see how far the proceed in Ulster. 

I think the Nab may have missed there chance and be hard to see them pushing hard next year as they did this.  Armagh football is in a healthy position regardless.

Think it was the wrong decision, strictly for the fact that they are citing their deeply held religious beliefs as the reasoning.  Are they denying services to adulterers, divorced couples, those who engage in premarital sex etc.

Cherry picking orthodox morality looks suspiciously like bigotry.

Agreed, it wasnít that long ago that young fella from Fermanagh was assaulted in a game out in the States and that nearly ended in tragedy, I donít think he really recovered from that incident either and his life is forever changed.  There is feckall respect in GAA these days.

Every other weeks thereís melees breaking out at the moment.  Surely Ulster GAA/ Croke Park have to get involved at some point.  As someone has mentioned here before, does it have to result in someone getting killed  before actions are taken?

The best 4 teams left in the championship and genuinely think any 4 of them can take it.  Its good to see the Armagh championship so healthy at last. 

Ballymacnab have been outstanding this year and Cullyhanna have been nothing short of great too.  Cross and Maghery are finally gaining steam at the right time also so 2 great semi finals coming up.

Donít see what people can complain about.  He has released a book and giving his version/opinion of events.  I wouldnít have looked at before, but so far it seems to give more of an insight behind the scenes than most other sports books probably would.

The whole mind frame and the player culture at united has changed and Mourinho isnít the guy to turn that around to what it was.  United did finish 2nd last season but they donít seem to have the same steel they once did to grind out results. 

Getting beat last year by Newcastle, Brighton, WBA, Huddersfield, drawing with Burnley and Southampton.  They have top players but they are more interested in their hairstyles or launching fashion ranges, which is all well and good, but when they are doing a substandard day job something needs looked at. 

Anyone who thinks 2nd place is a good result needs to go away and look at themselves.

GAA Discussion / Re: Your countyís toughest defeat to stomach
« on: August 17, 2018, 03:31:43 PM »
From an Armagh perspective, last year against Down was a hard pill to swallow for me.  Not registering a score in the second half, my thoughts were, we are at our lowest, were do we go from here. 

They have suffered big defeats and narrow defeats, but losing in that manner was bad.  I still shudder thinking about it.

Involved in this scene atm and have mixed feeling on it tbh.  It will be interesting to see if the championship Ďfeelí come into play when we take on our first game.  I grew up playing the ď1 bite at the cherryĒ format and weeks running up to a game was nerve wrecking, this feels different so far to me, if we lose are first game we have a shot at redemption. 

To be fair, just a  duffleking has stated, it is probably the fairest format as we are playing a mix of teams on our level and momentum may play a factor in the knockouts.  I would expect the harps, who have had a topsy turvy season to kick into gear with the run of games. 

Unfortunately due to the volume of games being played and the depth of players that will be used throughout the county, the B competition will become more or less redundant in my eyes.
